Jihad Down Under

The recent arrest of seventeen Muslims in Australia highlights the peril presented by Muslim immigration to Western societies. True enough, not all Muslims are Islamists, but a significant percentage are sympathetic to Islamism, or at least unconcerned by its growth in their communities, which amounts to tacit support. Given the worldwide reach and ambitions of Islamist terrorists, drawn in unending numbers from local Muslim populations worldwide, the folly of admitting Muslim – even in small, highly screened number – into non-Muslim nations should be self-evident. Of course, the leaders of Western nations have adopted multiculturalism as their new civic religion, and willfully refuse to acknowledge the mounting evidence that multiculturalism’s core social assumptions are false (see France). Nonetheless, it is instructive to note what the police found when they arrested the Australian Muslims.

Seventeen men, including the suspected ringleader Abdul Nacer Benbrika, also known as Abu Bakr, were arrested in Sydney and Melbourne on November 8 in Australia's biggest anti-terrorism raids.

The document, submitted to Sydney's Central Local Court today, outlined the allegations against the eight suspects held in Sydney.

It shows that they bought chemicals used in the London July 7 bombs, had bomb-making instructions in Arabic and videos entitled "Sheikh Osama's Training Course" and "Are you ready to die?"

It also shows that their Islamic spiritual leader told the men that if they wanted to die for jihad they should inflict "maximum damage".

"If we want to die for jihad, we have to have maximum damage. Maximum damage. Damage their buildings, everything. Damage their lives," said Benbrika, according to the document.

It also alleges that six of the men went on "hunting and camping trips", which police described as jihad training camps, in the Australian outback in March and April 2005.

"This training is consistent with the modus operandi of terrorists prior to attacks," the police document said, adding one man attended a training camp in Pakistan in 2001.

This is what the Australians permitted into their country when they opened their borders to immigrants from cultures which had nothing in common with their own. The same blight – created by the same ideological poison – is now burning cars in Paris (read: flexing its muscles). The inability of Western leaders to forthrightly identify the threat and take the proper steps to combat it, leaves the West vulnerable and undefended as it invigorates the Islamists, who have correctly diagnosed Western self-loathing and intellectual decay and are ready to exploit both. Such muddle-headedness is amply demonstrated by George Bush’s incoherent and empty "War on Terrorism" rhetoric (is the US at war with Basque separtists in Spain? The Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka?) and his frequent admonitions to the American people that "Islam is a religion of peace," which demands Americans to close their eyes and ignore the cruel reality that fills the nightly newscasts and every day’s newspapers. Not surprisingly, this is the same leader who has stood by idly as his nation’s southern border has collapse under an tidal wave of invading Mexicans, who bring with them their language and culture, creating Mexican colonies in every American city and town, and who show no inclination to assimilate. Paris today is Los Angeles twenty years from now, if not sooner.
