“The Royal Australian Navy is advertising for ‘devout Muslims,’” by Bernard Gaynor, June 26, 2017:
The Royal Australian Navy is now advertising for devout Muslims:
It is so desperate to secure their services that it is even kitting out mini-mosques on every base for them. Presumably, they get space at sea to pray as well.
This pro-Islamic attitude is far different from the one shown towards Defence members who are Christian.
Here is an excerpt from a letter sent to me by the former Chief of Defence Force, Lieutenant General David Hurley, about my expression of my Catholic faith:
This much is clear. The ADF hierarchy will sack Defence members for expressing Christian beliefs regardless of whether they are on duty or in uniform. And they will actively recruit Muslims and set aside work spaces so that they can pray.
It is a blatant case of double standards and hypocrisy.
That is bad enough.
But this politically-correct endorsement of Islam is also dangerous. That’s far worse.
We have already seen one Australian soldier go AWOL and end up fighting in Syria for jihadi groups. And we have seen a US major go postal at Fort Hood and kill 13 US soldiers dead. Prior to this he even handed out business cards announcing that he was a ‘Soldier of Allah’.
No one said anything lest they be accused of racism. Or bigotry. Or even bigoted Islamophobic racism.
That happened in 2009 and it is by no means an isolated example. There have been numerous other similar cases and even Islamic French SF soldiers have signed up to fight for the Islamic State.
No doubt, all of these people claim they are devout Muslims….
