Hizb ut-Tahrir, a jihadist group that is banned in many countries, is holding a conference on restoration of the caliphate in Australia. Authorities can do nothing about it, because H u-T advocates peaceful means.
This is something that is going to have to change if we wish to resist the Islamization of the West. Sharia supremacism must be recognized as a goal that is being pursued by non-violent as well as violent means. It must be exposed as at variance with Western principles of freedom of conscience and the equality of dignity and rights of all people, and resisted as such no matter how it proceeds.
“Local push for Islamic state,” by Barney Zwartz in The Age, with thanks to all who sent this in:
AN ULTRA-radical Muslim group banned in many countries will promote support for an Islamic superstate in a seminar in Australia this month.
Christian critics claim that the seminar, to be conducted by the group Hizb ut-Tahrir, will be a recruiting ground for extremists.
Hizb ut-Tahrir believes that the caliphate “” a part of the world under Muslim rule that, at its peak, ran from Spain to Iran and beyond “” is about to be re-established.
Hizb ut-Tahrir is banned in Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Russia and most Muslim countries in the Middle East because of alleged links to terrorism, including the bombers behind the 2005 London attacks.
It is not banned in Australia but is controversial because it opposes democracy and Muslim integration, has tried to recruit young Muslims and ran a lecture last year titled “Israel is an illegal state that Muslims will never accept”.
A promotional video for the January 27 Sydney conference on the internet site YouTube.com claims the world was “plunged into darkness” on March 3, 1924, the date when Turkish leader Kemal Ataturk ended the Ottoman caliphate.
