We still shoot traitors when Australia's at war? Uthman Badar's latest pro-Islamic State rant. Why isn't Hizb ut-Tahrir outlawed?
On Monday their ABC published this disgraceful statement comparing our Islamist enemy with our ally Israel
The next day the Caliphate or Islamic State did this:
One day later Islamic State's Lord Haw Haw Uthman Badar published this
Now, please allow me the luxury of editorialising.
You arsehole Badar. Why France? Why not you. I can't think of a single reason.
Are we at war with Islamists or not?
France's President has made the declaration, the Republic of France is at War with Islamists.
What about us?
Our diggers get war pay on deployment to the Middle East to help eradicate Islamists. Sounds like our Army is at war on our behalf.
40 men have been killed in action against Islamists and their names are on the Roll of Honour at the War Memorial.
So who sent them to fight?
Our soldiers patches tell the world on whose behalf they meet this enemy. Australia or أستراليا for locals within range.
There's no shoulder patch to say, 'Hi, I was sent here by "Mutual Values of Respect" or 'The Vibe", have a nice day'.
So if Australia (أستراليا Badar) is at war with Islamists, why are Islamists free to hold recruiting campaigns and undermine our war effort here?
And when one of them crosses the line into the traitorous behaviour involved in Uthman Badar's course of conduct, why aren't there holes in his heart?
“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse. When a people are used as mere human instruments for firing cannon or thrusting bayonets, in the service and for the selfish purposes of a master, such war degrades a people. A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war, carried on for an honest purpose by their free choice, — is often the means of their regeneration. A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever-renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other.”
We Will Remember Them.
