Anne Aly won’t discuss Guardian article with ‘non-academic’

UPDATE: Dr Aly shows her true colours again in this unnecessary and uncalled for tweet:

Maybe that is the kind of conduct that is to be expected from staff at Curtin University…And of course, ‘polemics’ are only written by other people that disagree with you… LOL!

'Shut up' she explained…

‘Shut up’ she explained…

I think we can all draw our own conclusions from that.

Dr Anne Aly’s biography at Curtin University reads as follows:

Dr Anne Aly is an Early Career Research Fellow at Curtin University. She has a professional background in policy having worked as a Senior Policy Officer and Manager within the Western Australian Government.

Anne’s research interests are in the areas of terrorism studies and counter terrorism with a focus on the public and policy responses to terrorism. Her PhD explored the mediated [which I infer from the context means ‘via the media’] fear of terrorism among Muslim communities and the broader community in Australia.

Anne has published widely on diverse issues including Muslim identity, Muslim media activism, terrorism and the internet, the terrorism discourse and counter terrorism responses. She has presented at national and international conferences and workshops on terrorism and counter terrorism and Australian Arab relations. She is the author of Terrorism and Global Security: Historical and Contemporary Approaches (Palgrave Macmillan).

Handful of ‘right wing’ extremists worse than gazillions of Jihadis

Increasing daily…

With the tragic shooting of black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, overnight, you can be sure of one thing. Muslim leaders and the moral relativists on the Left will add it to the (short) list of acts of right wing crazies to claim that Islamic terrorism is not a special case, and ‘all religions and ideologies are the same’.

That list comprises Timothy McVeigh, Anders Breivik, Dylann Roof, and er… [that’s it, Ed*]

The Left remain steadfastly silent at the daily acts of Jihadi violence across the planet, the widespread persecution of Christians and Jews, the gruesome beheadings and crucifixions, and the gratuitous torture fed to our living rooms via YouTube. But you can bet that when one unhinged ‘right wing’ nutcase opens fire, they’ll be all over it like a rash.

In other words, a handful of right wing extremists is just the same as 1400 years of violence against non-Muslims justified by Islamic ideology, including, since 9/11 alone, over 26,000 jihadi terror attacks.

And anyone that says otherwise is a greasy, racist Islamophobe.

Bravo to Andrew West on RN’s Religion and Ethics Report for challenging the politically correct notion of Islam as a religion of peace, and it was done without labelling anyone an Islamophobe! See, it is possible.

It also clinically exposed the shrill obfuscation and avoidance typical of Islamic apologists when confronted with awkward facts and cogent arguments.
