Muslim leader Keysar Trad tells Andrew Bolt a husband can beat his wife – but he should only use his fists as ‘a last resort’

Muslim community leader Keysar Trad says an angry husband can beat his wife as ‘a last resort’.

The president of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils made the remarks after Sky News presenter Andrew Bolt quoted a verse from the Koran, saying: ‘It is permissible for him [the husband] to beat her [the wife] light with his hands.’

The controversial Muslim leader, who has previously called for polygamy in Australia, said he had studied the text with ‘a number of Islamic scholars’ to reach a conclusion about the meaning of the verse.

Revealed: How Q&A Sharia law guest sought advice and support from hardline Islamist Wassim Doureihi – who repeatedly refused to condemn Islamic State terrorist attacks

A Muslim ABC presenter who told Q&A she practised sharia turned to an Islamist who repeatedly refused to condemn Islamic State murders in a shocking television interview.

Youth activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied told Q&A last week sharia to her meant praying five times a day and that Islam was the ‘most feminist religion’.

After that polarising appearance the 25-year-old writer, who also hosts an ABC News 24 program, turned to Hizb ut-Tahir spokesman Wassim Doureihi for advice on social media about how to present her arguments.

This is the same man who in October 2014 repeatedly refused to condemn Islamic State’s murderous atrocities in northern Iraq – despite being asked 11 times to do so in an 11-minute interview on the ABC’s Lateline program.

Australian school allows male Muslim pupils to refuse handshakes with women

Hadith teaching states: ‘It is better to be stabbed in the head with an iron needle than to touch the hand of a woman who is not permissible to you’

An Australian school has adopted a policy allowing male Muslim students to refuse to shake hands with women.

Two principles at the Hurstville Boys Campus of Georges River College, in Sydney, told guests at its 2016 presentation day that some students may not shake hands because of their faith.

Instead, students at the Years 7 to 10 school placed their hands across their chest as they received their rewards.

Prison psychologist converted to Islam and married an infamous Muslim rape gang member

A former prison psychologist has converted to Islam and married a member of the Skaf gang notorious for raping teenagers across Sydney in 2000.

The former psychologist Joanne Natalie Senior, 36, converted to Islam after marrying the Skaf gang member who was released in 2013 – and it is her second relationship with a man from the Skaf gang, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

Her husband was one of nine men responsible for a string of gang rapes across Sydney in 2000 led by Bilal Skaf, which a judge described as ‘worse than murder’.

Jacqui Lambie calls Sharia law an ‘anti-democratic cancer’ while Islamist 5th columnist argues ‘equality’

The outspoken Tasmanian crossbencher said in the video she wanted to make six obvious points about Sharia law. It follows her heated debate with Muslim activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied on Q&A on Monday night.

In a fiery exchange Ms Abdel-Magied said Senator Lambie knew nothing about her faith after the crossbencher said “anybody that supports Sharia Law in this country should be deported”.

In the clip, Senator Lambie said the Muslim belief imposed the death penalty on gay people and women who were not faithful to their husbands, and denied the rights for Jews to live in peace.

Australian Muslim leader calls for a ban on the burqa – saying it will help national security and prevent terrorist attacks

Banning women from wearing the burqa will help prevent terror attacks in Australia and increase national security, a Muslim leader has claimed.

Jamal Daoud, a Sunni Muslim and human rights activist, came out in support for a ban on the burqa this week, claiming only an extreme Islamic minority wear the veil.

Mr Daoud told 7News women are not required to wear a burqa or niqab under Islam and there is ‘no mentioning of covering the face in any Quranic verses.’

Australians are ‘self-segregating’ against Muslim migrants – because they want to ‘protect their daughters’

Australians are fleeing areas where Islamic migrants live in a bid to protect their daughters, a One Nation senator says.

Malcolm Roberts made the claim during a parliamentary debate in Canberra about a plan to refuse or cancel visas for foreigners who commit crimes in Australia or pose a safety threat.

‘We the people are seeking to protect our children, our daughters, our property, our liberty,’ the Queensland senator told parliament on Monday.

Australia strips Muslim terrorist of citizenship

“Islamic State” (IS) fighter Khaled Sharrouf has been stripped of his Australian citizenship, the “Weekend Australian” newspaper reported on Saturday. He is the first person to have his dual citizenship revoked under a law introduced by Canberra in 2015.

Sharrouf, the son of Lebanese immigrants, left Australia for Syria in late 2013 in order to join the jihadist group and became known for his involvement in the beheadings of government officials. In 2014, photos emerged online of the 35-year-old and his then 7-year-old son holding the severed heads of Syrian soldiers.

Muslims face life in prison after being charged with planning a terrorist attack in Sydney

Two teenagers will be charged with planning to carry out a terrorist act when they face a Sydney court this week.

Alo-Bridget Namoa and Sameh Bayda, both aged 19, were arrested on terror charges early last year by the NSW Joint Counter Terrorism Team.

On Wednesday the married couple – who once said they wanted to ‘do a Muslim Bonnie and Clyde’ – will front Central Local Court charged with ‘conspiracy to do an act, or acts in preparation for, or planning, a terrorist act or acts’.

Who are Those Refugees Australia Doesn’t Want?

It is hard to complain about Australia — democratic, sunny, cheerful, and oh, those koalas and kangaroos. On a more serious note, Australia is a welcome ally, participating in military operations around the world with American forces and sharing our concerns about aggressive Chinese behavior in the South- and East China Seas. Australia is spending billions to modernize its military forces.

But a few things about Australia should be made clear as President Trump scuttles an Obama-administration deal to take 1,250+ refugees currently in Australian-run internment camps in Papua New Guinea and Nauru. Internment camps? Papua New Guinea and Nauru?

People on terror watch list ‘should be kicked out of Australia or thrown in jail’, says Jacqui Lambie

INDEPENDENT Senator Jacqui Lambie has renewed her call for the deportation of all immigrants who support sharia law and any immigrants who appear on ASIO’s official terror watch list.

She said she believed the 190 people on the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation’s list were Islamic and called on Federal Attorney-General George Brandis to release details.

“The Government must stop the cover-up and political correctness and release full details on our official terror watch list,” she said.

Australia Day billboard showing women in hijabs taken down after threats of violence

MEMBERS of far right social media groups are celebrating a win for “people power” after an Australia Day billboard depicting two Muslim women was hastily pulled following an Islamophobia-fuelled outcry.

Social media erupted after a picture of the billboard began circulating last Friday, with many Facebook users slamming the freeway advertisement as “un-Australian”.

On Tuesday, Victorian Multicultural Affairs Minister Robin Scott revealed the billboard would be taken down, after the company behind the ad, QMS, received threats
