Candidate for dhimmi of the year,
Ms Julia Gillard, news.com.au:
THE rising number of Muslim schools is part of the "modern age" and the focus should be on ensuring all students get a world-class education, Federal Education Minister Julia Gillard says ...Mizz Gillard, please tell Robert Spencer where he can find a world class peaceful modern Islamic ideology to teach the kiddies, cause he's been searching for years:
"From the point of view of the Federal Government generally, we say that parents deserve to have choices about where their children go to school.
"That's inherent in the Australian system, and we want to make sure wherever they go that they have a high class, indeed world class, education."
Ms Gillard said the Government had plans to introduce a national curriculum board.
"We've had the Catholic system for a long period of time, we all grew up with Catholic kids who went to Catholic schools," she said.
"In the modern age we have some Muslim schools as well ...
... peaceful Muslims have never formulated an Islamic response to the jihadists' claim to represent pure and true Islam -- and as long as they do not and apparently cannot do so, the jihadists will continue to hold the intellectual initiative within Islamic communities worldwide. "Moderate" Muslim spokesmen such as those above have not just not answered me; they've done nothing to seize that intellectual initiative and blunt the force of jihadist recruitment among Muslims ....Equivalence: comfort for twits.
... no one, Muslim or non-Muslim, has ever yet refuted the contention that Islam teaches warfare against and the subjugation of unbelievers. And so one thing is certain: that warfare will continue.
Please Note: whilst this blog also deals at times with the issue of race, Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch holds the view that the anti-jihad resistance is not about race.
