Is it any wonder that the Sydney Mohammed riots happened when a disgrace like this is the order of the day?Geert Wilders, the Dutch MP who frequently warns about the dangers of Islamic radicalism, has applied for a visa to visit and give speeches in Australia, but the application has stalled. The official reason for the delay is that Wilders is on the Movement Alert List, a database of people of security concern to the Australian government. It means that his application is being held up at the Department of Immigration headquarters in Canberra while more thorough security checks are done.But you see Geert Wilders visit would upset Muslims who might riot, while Taji Mustafas visit might also get Muslims to riot, but on the other hand it might also finally convince them how much Australia loves them.
As if to underscore the politically correct calculations delaying Wilders visa application, the governing Australian Labour Party swiftly approved a visa for Taji Mustafa, the British head of the Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, a group notorious for religious intolerance, disdain for Western values and sympathy for jihad. Prime Minister Julia Gillard said she would not be revoking Mustafas visa and that Hizb ut-Tahrir was not on the governments list of proscribed terrorist groups.
When appeasers rule, they instinctively appease and if appeasement doesnt work, then they appease harder. After Sydney, Gillard has ladled on some faux tough talk.It is the meeting place of rights and responsibilities where the right to maintain ones customs, language and religion is balanced by an equal responsibility to learn English, find work, respect our culture and heritage, and accept women as full equals, Ms Gillard said. Where there is non-negotiable respect for our foundational values of democracy and the rule of law, and any differences we hold are expressed peacefully.But as the bull said to the turkey, Thats all well good, but what are you going to do about it?
Weve heard this same empty tough talk from Sarkozy and it cost him the election. We heard some of the same tough talk from Cameron and it went nowhere. Tough talk doesnt matter, tough actions do. And welcoming in Geert Wilders while giving Mustafa the boot would at least count for something.
Austria has stalled the visa application for Geert Wilders for security checks but swiftly approved a visa for Taji Mustafa an Islamist who disdains the West and supports jihad. This was a very politically correct decision in order not to offend Muslims who might get upset by Wilders because he criticizes radical Islam.
This is just wrong and Geert Wilders needs to be let in, he doesn't support violence and is no threat to the people
Do you agree that Geert Wilders should be let in and Austria was wrong for stalling the application?
