Coalition MP’s call for reform to Islam

4

5444835396_b7816d7eb5_islam-australiaThe Herald Sun has broken a massive story today.  At least half a dozen Coalition MPs, in partlicular war hero Andrew Hastie, have now publicly stated that there is a link between Islamic terrorism and Islamic ideology, that there needs to be an open an honest debate about Islam, and that those aspects of Islamic ideology which do not “cohere with the Australian way of life” need to be reformed.

These are points which The XYZ, many of our readers, and many people across the world have consistently and repeatedly pointed out.  What is crucial is that now, there are elected representatives of the people of Australia, taking a principled stand against the way that debate about terrorism and Islam is being framed by political correctness, rather than by reality.

Some other key points, which mirror arguments made by The XYZ include:

The importance of distinguishing between the ideology of Islam and Muslims themselves;

The distinction between Reformation Christianity and unreformed Islam;

The importance of asserting a strong narrative of cultural identity to counter the narrative of the jihadists;

And the connection between the teachings of the quran and the actions of Islamic terrorists, a point reinforced by the scholarly work of Anglican minister Mark Durie and the pronouncements of Egyptian President Fattah el-Sisi.

This is a huge moment in the ongoing battle of ideas which will shape this nation and the rest of the Western world for the decades to come.  We are starting to see divisions open up in the West between those countries which are prepared to acknowledge the problem with Islamic ideology, and assert their own right to a cultural and/or ethnic Western identity; and those which refuse to acknowledge the Islamic nature of Islamic terrorism, and continue to commit slow motion cultural suicide in the process.

What the regular punter can take from such news is that this battle of ideas could not be occurring at the public and official level of elected representatives without the resolve of ordinary people who are prepared to challenge the politically correct line.

    The Qur’an is written in such a way that later verses over rule older verses if there is a conflict, so the more violent verses written in Medina by Mo take precedence over earlier entries. In order that Islam could possibly remain in modern society it needs to do as other religions have done, and conform to societies current expectations. The was violence in a lot of religions in years gone by, The only religion that has not moved with the times is Islam who still follow the same horrific barbarism of it’s elders. Should a “Moderate” Muslim leader advocate reform he would either be ignored or cause a split in the faith. Many take pleasure in their “excuses” for rape, torture and murder.

    It’s religion. You can’t ‘reform’ it. It will always be subject the interpretations of people who use it, or those who were brainwashed as children and subsequently sincerely believe what they were told.

    here is little difference between cults like Scientology, Hinduism, Buddhism, the major Abraham based religions, polytheistic or ‘pagan’ religions except long term acceptance and generation on generation brainwashing. There is no evidence of any god like being of any sort except that which references itself, which is no proof at all.

    Christianity would likely have died out if not for Emperor Constantine deciding the Christian cult would be politically beneficial to him.

    Religion as a whole is a violent cult inflicted upon impressionable young minds, warping them for life.

    What a wonderful article, it’s about time the Coalition made a move in this direction.
    There has been an Elephant in the room for sometime now! which the politicians, I’m sure, would rather go away. It must be obvious to all by now, that’s not going to happen on it’s own.
    We need urgent and serious discussion by our parliament and the community on the best way to deal with this matter.

    Islam cannot be sanitized to become a non threatening peaceful religion, such as Christianity. The two faith based beliefs cannot coexist. Islam, by definition is a supremacist ideology that opposes any other belief to the point of purposeful, and brutal annihilation of it. It is a good thing that a few politicians are just beginning to understand what has been going on in other countries for decades and centuries, which now threatens our own way of life, if this scourge is not prevented from spreading across our country. For peace to be brought to the middle east, Muslims themselves will have to be the ones to say, enough is enough, we are the ones who are at fault, and we must stop blaming the Jews and the west for all the bad shit, that has happened to them.
    They have brought it upon themselves. All because of Islam, and the teaching of the Koran. As far as the west is concerned, attacks like what happened in Paris will increase exponentially as the Muslim populations increase throughout western countries. If refugees are to be brought into this country, they should only be from the persecuted minorities from Muslims dominated countries. Only these will assimilate to our way of life.
