A day later for the Cats abroad. See you on the other side. Mike of Marionposted on December 24, at 9: Jennifer Oriel is a brave woman. With her piece on self-censorship, published in The Australian today, she truly joins the small vanguard of Australians who understand Islamic jihad and the nature of the threat we face.
During the past week, the government has changed the parameters of the public debate on Islamism in Australia. Along with ASIO, it has reframed the debate to propose the cause of militant Islam is, in part, our response to it.
Lewis wants MPs to use more soothing language when responding to Islam. Targets of his advice include Andrew Hastie, a former Special Air Service captain who defended the free world by fighting Islamists, including the Taliban and Islamic State.
Hastie argues that unless the militantly monotheistic teachings of Islam are reformed, it will fail to develop productive capacity in the pluralistic, open society of Australia. However, the aperture has been closed prematurely by MPs and bureaucrats who appear slow to grasp that jihadism is not an act of lone wolves but a global movement rooted in the religion of fundamentalist Islam.
The contention that Australian MPs should modify their message on Islam to mollify militant Muslims plays right into the hands of the global jihadist movement.
The moment Australians censor honest debate on Islamism for fear of a violent backlash, we become victims of political jihad. As yet, there is no indication about what intelligence led ASIO or the Prime Minister to believe that counselling MPs into a measure of self-censorship on Islamism constitutes sound policy on national security.
But they are not alone in criticising recent calls to reform Islam so that militant fundamentalism plays no part in its future. Assistant Minister for Multicultural Affairs Concetta Fierravanti-Wells recently claimed proposals for a reformation of Islam were simplistic.
The claim is questionable. In a podcast entitled The Path of KnowledgeAlsuleiman appears to praise jihadism conducted in the name of Allah shouting: They are with Allah, alive … They are so happy with what Allah has granted them and given them.
It is consistent with strains of Islamist ideology where jihadism is praised as a path to paradise. The Weekend Australian has revealed that some members and associates of the Australian National Imams Council hold militant Islamist views.
The problem is not limited to Australia. Last week, the British government published extraordinary findings on how Islamist organisation the Muslim Brotherhood has influenced the development of Muslim community groups in the UK.
By doing so, they obtained access to government. For decades, Western governments have sought to reconcile liberal democracy to Islamism, often by soliciting the advice of individuals and groups claiming to represent moderate Islamic communities.
But the leaders are not democratically elected and frequently represent Sunni Islam to the exclusion of Muslims from other denominations. The problem of Islamism cannot be resolved by urging MPs to censor the truth about it or soliciting advice from individuals and organisations who justify jihadist activity in its military, economic or political forms.
Australia needs plain- speaking politicians willing to risk censure by telling the truth about political Islam not as they are told to tell it but as it is.
