A Joke

Quote:
AUSTRALIA'S Muslim leaders have been "read the riot act" over the need to denounce any links between Islam and terrorism. The Howard Government's multicultural spokesman, Andrew Robb, yesterday told an audience of 100 imams who address Australia's mosques that these were tough times requiring great personal resolve.

Mr Robb also called on them to shun a victim mentality that branded any criticism as discrimination.

"We live in a world of terrorism where evil acts are being regularly perpetrated in the name of your faith," Mr Robb said at the Sydney conference.

"And because it is your faith that is being invoked as justification for these evil acts, it is your problem.

"You can't wish it away, or ignore it, just because it has been caused by others.

"Instead, speak up and condemn terrorism, defend your role in the way of life that we all share here in Australia."

Politics of the lowest common denominator, I hardly expect there to be genuine action from within but the politics seems to yield very little by way of result.

Will the Imams listen probably not will the slaughter of innocents in the name of Allah continue? Probably, will the Imamns do anything? Yes when they fell like there being singles out because they do nothing to stop the internal strife.

Meanwhile, the Pentagon is investigating whether the Koran itself is encouraging Islamofascist terror.

They're not corrupted by political cowardice like these laughing stocks are.

Like when Bush calls Islam a Religion of Peace?

The believers dilemma is found in condemning the mirrored beliefs of Abrahamic religions.

Yes, that's also an example of political cowardice.
