New Zealand Maori Muslim forms own ‘Islamic State of Aotearoa’

A Hawke’s Bay Muslim man is calling on “souljahs of Allah” to join him in forming the “Islamic State of Aotearoa”.

Te Amorangi Kireka-Whaanga, of Hastings, who heads the Aotearoa Maori Muslim Association, said in a Facebook post yesterday he had changed the organisation’s name to the Islamic State of Aotearoa.

Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule said Mr Kireka-Whaanga’s Facebook posts were “very concerning,” considering the Islamic State’s violent reputation in the Middle East.

“I don’t think any normal, law-abiding Kiwi would think there’s any time or place for this kind of behaviour,” he said.

“When you have our own citizens setting up a terrorist-style cult within New Zealand, then the agencies on behalf of New Zealanders will do anything they can to stamp them out. I don’t think there’s any place in New Zealand for these Islamic cults.”

Mr Kireka-Whaanga has previously pledged his support for Islamic State on social media, saying it would bring down Western civilisation and true Muslims were behind Islamic State…

    Can’t believe the other Maori of New Zealand or Hastings would put up with this guy. The Maori are known for their proud Polynesian sea warrior culture and haku war dance. They are still one of the most successful indigenous tribes in spite of the British invasion. Maybe New Zealand is the place to go to avoid the muslim takeover here?
