Alma & Katrina: centenary of jihad in Australia

Jihad centenerayNew year’s day 1915, exactly one hundred years ago, and a 17 year old girl, Alma Cowie, is killed in Broken Hill by a jihadi gunman. This, like the iihad killing of Katrina Dawson (pictured) and Tori Johnson at the Lindt cafe, was in response to a call from the ‘Caliph’ in the middle east for all Muslims to enact their sacred duty of ‘individual jihad’ against the western infidel. A duty enjoined in Islam since its beginnings and enacted innumerable times over 1300 years by faithful Muslims. Not the ‘lone wolves’ with ‘mental problems’ that ever-so-nice twits in the media and politics waffle about. Angry young Muslim men, raging for the supremacy of their religion, hot for violence and their 72 virgins. One of Australia’s bravest scholars of Islam, Mark Durie, writes today of this ancient and modern phenomenon – if we read one serious article for the new year, and for our nations’ future, let this be it.

Egyptian Christians under assault from the Brotherhood

Coptic church burntThe Coptic Christians, who have been in Egypt since the very earliest days – firm tradition linking the evangelist Mark in AD 33 to the founding of the church in Alexandria, peaking in the golden era of the fourth century with Origen and Clement – are now being terrorised and their churches destroyed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Islam did not exist until the seventh century, but Christians are considered by the more orthodox Muslims to be infidels and inferior citizens in their own land.

Fairfax press today reports:

Obama’s oratory against abortion?

Are we really prepared to say that we are powerless in the face of such carnage? That the politics are too hard? Are we prepared to say that such violence visited upon our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?

President Obama’s moving appeal for the children murdered at Sandy Hook would be admirable if he were not so relentless an advocate for “the violence visited year after year after year” on children before birth – being the price of the sexual freedom he and his generation seem to prize so highly.
