Australia: From Islamophobia to Islamysteria

We may have a sense that there is fear and loathing in Australia because of the much vaunted “terror threat” stemming from the ISIS “death cult”.

But now the figures are in to prove it: close to half of all Australians say they feel more personally at risk of a domestic terrorist attack than they did six months ago, before the ISIS crisis began and before large-scale police raids on alleged terrorist conspirators.

So it seems that government security claims of a “lone wolf” threat and media misrepresentations about an alleged plot to behead someone have, indeed, inspired fear…

…A large proportion of Australians (56 per cent) believe Australia is now more vulnerable to a domestic terror attack as a result of Australia’s involvement in Iraq, and 44 per cent feel more personally at risk now than they did six months ago, before the Government ramped up its “death cult” rhetoric and actions…

…While the survey shows that most Australians believe only “a tiny minority” of the local Muslim community represents a terror threat, it also reveals the suspicion which lies below the surface. A majority of respondents believe Islam is more prone to violence than other religions (51 per cent agree) and just 42 per cent consider it to be a religion of peace, with 34 per cent thinking it is not. It seems the repeated protestations of Muslim community leaders have fallen on deaf ears…

This is from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC, but I am not calling it that due the confusion with the US company with same initials). Clearly they are like our own CBC. Idiots.

The “Muslim community leaders” will convince only those who are ignorant of Islam and takiyya. Islam can’t have it both ways. The rules surrounding ‘tactical’ use of lying no doubt worked in the distant past, but it is not very well adapted to the 21st century. Never surrender!
