Muslims Vow to Fight Anti-Terrorism Laws!
Those pesky war-mongering antipasto humus chomping anti-Jew Muslim cunts have launched an outright jihad on the Abbott government’s new counter-terrorism laws.
The measures, unveiled in a spectacularly self-contradictory and confused manner by the ordinarily cocky and grandiose George Brandis, will require ISPs to the collect the internet data of ordinary Australians.
Tony Abbott said the government’s plan is to require telecommunications companies to store users’ metadata for two years in order to fight ”general” crimes as well as terrorism.
IT’S NOT WHAT YOU’RE DOING ON THE INTERNET!
”It’s not what you’re doing on the internet, it’s the sites you’re visiting, it’s not the content, it’s the sites [where] you’ve been,’’ he told The Gutter Trash yesterday.
Last month Attorney-General George Brandis, standing alongside a senior imam from the council, said the government was partnering with the Islamic community to address radicalisation in the community.
But it appears this latest batch of security measures has soured relations.
The Australian National Islamic Council believes that the proposed changes to the anti-terrorism laws will severely impinge on the rights and freedoms of all Australians and especially those of Muslim faith.
In protest, the council has declined an invitation from the Australian Federal Police to attend a dinner designed to foster closer ties between religious groups and law enforcement.
RAMADAM DINNER DAMNED!
The Grand Mufti of Australia Ibrahim Abu Mohamed said “in all good conscience” he would not attend the annual dinner marking the end of Ramadan in protest at the proposed package of laws.
The proposed repeal of Section 18C of the discrimination act sparked a backlash from religious and cultural groups, who feared it would erode protections against hate speech.
In announcing the security laws this week Prime Minister Tony Abbott confirmed he was dropping plans to amend the discrimination act, saying he wanted the whole community behind the push to tackle terrorist threats.
The Lebanese Muslim Association labelled the laws “deplorable” and far more destructive than the proposed changes to the discrimination act.
“The LMA condemns the new anti-terror amendments, which only seem to target the Australian Muslim community,” the association said in a statement.
“If passed, they would give authorities unprecedented and intrusive powers.”
OPERATION SEVERED HEADS!
However, Tony Abbott remains undeterred, saying that the new laws are needed to stop Australian-born jihadists who ‘exultantly hold up severed heads’ of enemies.
The acting leader of the Greens, Adam Bandt, called on the prime minister to release draft legislation immediately so the details of the counter-terrorism changes could be properly scrutinised.
“Tony Abbott’s ‘Team Australia’ deserves to know what his proposed terror laws will mean for our freedoms and the rule of law,” Bandt said.
“Tony Abbott needs to make a convincing case for these changes. Trashing long-established legal norms, like the presumption of innocence, just because Tony Abbott says so isn’t good enough …
Making someone ‘guilty until proven innocent’ simply for visiting a particular area seems a step too far, especially while detail on this legislation is lacking.
“The experience of David Hicks should remind us of the dangers of trashing long-held legal principles.”
