Rostrum: National Mosque Open Day Edition!

October 30, 2015

Nice rugs – Exclusive secret photos taken inside a so-called “mosque”

You might not know it but this Saturday is National Mosque Open Day.

To mark the occasion, 14 Islamic “places of worship” across Australia have invited locals to experience what “those people” are calling “”cultural and religious diversity.”” Pfft!

Hobart muslim community leader Imam Sabri Samson said the open day was a prime opportunity to share the space with the public, and offer an insight into the so-called “”muslim faith.””

For some people it could be the first time they have stepped in to a mosque, much different to a church.

“There are no pictures, no sculpture, no chairs, just carpet,” says imam Samson.

“It is a different experience [for] most people who have never been to a mosque.”

The open day also takes place during the month of muharram (October) — one of the four so-called “sacred months of the year” on the Islamic calendar.

During the beginning of the Islamic New Year, a number of muslims will fast for the first 10 days.

“It is a month of mourning, but we sunni muslims, we don’t do that,” Imam Samson said.

“The majority of the muslims in world are sunni’s — 90 per cent.”

“We just treat the month as a new year, as a beginning of 1437 now a couple of weeks ago, so we don’t do anything special.”

“We might fast for a couple of days; like the ninth or 10th day of muharram but from there we just do our work normally.”

Imam Samson said the public could ask questions on the open day if they were curious to know more about the muslim religion.  Like, you know, “why do you behead people n’ stuff?”

A former teacher, Imam Samson works to dispel myths and distractions of Islamic State being associated with the Islamic faith.

“It is just not part of Islam… Islam doesn’t promote killing, murdering, raping women and these other people who got killed are muslims and that is a strange part,” he said.

Imam Sampson said in respect of the mosque, guests should wear a scarf to cover up and remove their shoes when entering the “sacred rooms.”

    Pfft!

    Pfft? Please explain?

    Having visited both cathedrals and mosques … I find them both offensive … obviously no-one did a CBA before they were constructed – most of the local population (wherever) were dying of starvation and/or overwork for decades … including small children!

    16-17 year olds to vote … Labor … ?

    Unfortunately for turnbull, 16-17 year olds are computer literate, and most will be able to see that he has pissed away billions of our dollars on an ideological enterprise of ripping down whatever has a Labor badge on it.

    ‘A mixed technology model is cheaper and faster and more efficient. That is beyond question,’ Turnbull, now prime minister, told parliament last week.

    But, according to communications consultant Paul Budde, it’s not. He says many in the telecommunications industry are losing confidence in the NBN.

    ‘If you look at the shambles which we have now, obviously he doesn’t know what he is doing,’ Budde says.

    Globally, the message is the same. Pure Fibre, all the way to the Premise, is what makes financial and technological sense.

    The operational savings of deploying FTTP broadband are soon to overtake the capex costs associated with deployment, says Point Topic

    I’m still undecided. Then again, so are Labor. Looks like they are doing a turnbull. “Let’s talk”

    I noticed turnbull said he isn’t pushing the GST debate (no really, our PM is just a bystander to all this), and will do whatever the people decide. I mean, really, he’s asking business (ie ‘the people’) if they reckon a GST in return for less taxes for them is good? And doesn’t want to be blamed for the bloody answer. Guess again (actually, he’ll probably get away with it)

    Meanwhile blib is doing `the-nero`, and fiddles with `votes for 16-year-olds` in the wrong belief of heading-off loopy-greenz by stealing their idea. Do it blib, there is un-tapped demographics of unpopularity to explore, and the greenz can thank you in advance.

    Australia’s obsession with border protection has reached peak farce with the Kyrgyzstan plan:

    …It’s a place about which the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade tells Australians: “exercise a high degree of caution … because of the potential for civil unrest, the threat of terrorism and high levels of crime”.

    It’s a place the CIA says faces “endemic corruption, poor inter-ethnic relations, and terrorism”. Even its parliamentary democracy is hardly performing as it should, now set to pass a draconian anti-gay bill making it a crime to “promote” any “non-traditional” sexuality.
    It’s a country more than 7000 kilometres from Sydney, with a relationship so close to Australia that neither country has an embassy in the other and last financial year, Australia sold it just $2.3 million of merchandise, mainly machines and butter, and bought just $262,000, mainly essential oils. We sold more stuff to Rwanda…

    ls it just me teabags, or is everybody else detecting that the wave of election mediocrity is heading ashore and soon to underwhelm us.

    Quite frankly l have no fcuking interest in next-times election, talkbull has already attracted the swoon of enough punters to win, and will. We will then cop the usual teabag fetishes under a talkbull led zombie-herd of gifting to the rich and austerity for the rest, in one fashion or another.

    The only part that seems remotely interesting of the event will be what team-rabble end-up doing with blib, and associated membership-V-caucus vote. lt will be interesting to see if caucus demands the membership retain blib as opposition buffoon for the next wilderness approved decade.

    “”The only part that seems remotely interesting of the event will be what team-rabble end-up doing with blib””

    I fail to see why a multi-national company which does not have a head office in Australia should pay any tax in Australia.

    If i buy an Apple computer only the importer should pay tax. The importer will purchase the computer from overseas and then sell it at a higher price in Australia.

    This taxing multi-nationals just appears to be another wild goose chase inspired by lefties.

    The truth is that they are all dishonest. I don’t believe turnbull any more than I do shorten. They all play the power games, undermine, back stab and self-serve to get where they are, it is their core work and what they spend most of their time on, not cups of tea with the pensioners at the local club.

    I’m actually surprised that we don’t get to hear more about the dirty deals, the money grubbing and political assassinations. If we had a federal ICAC maybe we would.

    And Labor could do worst than to link link a GST rise as “groceries paying for polluters”

    Suddenly under turnbull we’ve got the pro uranium corporate rent seekers and hucksters out and about shilling for oz to become the world’s uranium rubbish tip – what could go wrong? let’s not invest in renewables.

    I AGREE! I don’t completely agree about the “dishonest’ bit though. But, in order to ‘keep the bastards honest’ we need transparency, so that things like this don’t happen. If Shorten can make major changes to prevent this sort of factional manipulation, the voters will reward him imo.

    Factional operatives routinely require conference and pre-selection committee delegates to disclose their completed ballot papers, in order to ensure that they have voted in accordance with factional directives. Alternatively, delegates are required to hand over their blank ballot papers to be completed by the operatives on their behalf.

    A familiar sight at the early stages of party conferences is queuing by delegates who attend for the sole purpose of receiving ballot papers, which they then turn over for completion by the operatives, before leaving and taking no further part in the proceedings.

    OK Good point. But i will have to give it some thought. But from what i have seen the people who should be complaining the most are the US taxpayers. Apple seems to be avoiding USA tax. I don’t think Apple should be paying tax in Australia unless the company makes the stuff in Australia.

    I purchase stuff on Ebay. Most of which comes from China (batteries, bicycle parts, printer cartridges). I fail to see why these Chinese companies should be paying tax in Australia. Same when i purchase stuff from Dealsdirect. This company just imports the stuff and should only pay tax on the profit they make selling the stuff here at a higher price.

    Unless these multi-nationals companies are making stuff in Australia i fail to see what the fuss is all about. Actually i do see. It is just another smoke screen sent up by the left to confuse people.

    AND, despite numerous media stories to the contrary, turc statements showed that the AWU did not keep their negotiations a secret from other Unions, in fact, they mightily pissed off the company negotiator when they publicised their intents directly to the CFMEU

    TomM, once again you only tell one side of the story. The libs are just as active in party machinations as Labor, but for some reason it doesn’t get the same media attention and accusations of skullduggery.

    These party games are the rot at the centre of our political system and why it stinks, powerful people in the two party duopoly, treating government of the nation as their inherent right and totally ignoring the wishes of the electorate.

    Liberals thumb their noses at party reform
    http://www.smh.com.au/comment/liberals-thumb-their-noses-at-party-reform-20151030-gkn480.html

    …One is the biggest division of the Liberal Party, its NSW branch. The other is the Labor Party-trade union complex.
    These power cliques are expert at preserving themselves. They are closed to refreshing themselves. They are stagnant, failing, largely invisible to the public, the slow-rotting foundations on which the public parliamentary structures stand…

    …In short, it’s a great opportunity for the Liberals to put forward an outstanding Australian, someone of real accomplishment, a future leader.
    Instead, the power aristocracy that controls the NSW Liberal party head office declared an “emergency”, shut out branch members from voting, and imposed a party machine operative on the electorate…

    Nice comment in the above article. I share the frustration.

    …Argh! This debate goes on and on. The rich reckon they pay too much tax, and are pressuring govts around the world to flatten taxes to 10% (like the Bible says) and push up consumption taxes (to whatever you like) because frankly, we don’t buy anything in Australia.
    Well, maybe a coffee on Sunday morning and we need penalties slashed so my favorite barista can open and talk to me and make me feel important.
    In the background, the rich over 65’s dont pay any tax at all. The rich have negative gearing and capital gains rorts and their super finds can borrow and UP UP goes asset prices because Abbott decided that he wasn’t going to do any fiscal spending, so the deficit has doubled, but houses have also doubled and, inbetween Greenland melting and houses costing $2m median in 5 years, well, your 10 year old kid is in for a tough time, eh?
    Yesterday’s news? median mortgage is $1m. ONE MILLION$$ – well, we know where the banks super-profit is coming from, eh? And where will your 10 year old – or 20 year old – buy a house? Definitely not near you, not in the same city. All going well, eh? No young employees to fill your business either.
    There are SO MANY things wrong with Australian society today that, if I wrote a list, you’d be instantly depressed. And Smiley Turnbull just wants to blow kisses in the air, throw promises to the wind, and polish the boots of the LNP hardmen.

    Walrus

    You did not comment on the $1.2B in subsidies Gina is supposed to have received. This appears to be another leftie diversion. The govt gives subsidies to mining companies.

    Panadol Osteo cost very little anyway TB.

    It is only a slightly bigger does of paracetamol in a harder solution so that it dissolves more slowly. Big deal if you pay $8 for about 50 instead of $4

  62. November 4, 2015 9:33 am

    I don’t settle for anything less than Nurofen Plus or Panadeine…

    Anything else is for wimps.

    Congratulations on the win TB…

    perhaps you could put it towards a new suit..

    “Panadol Osteo cost very little anyway TB. ”

    Yeah………..unless you gobble them down by the fucking bucket load. $0.06 per caplet now.

    So what if they go to $0.12 ?

    Yet TB whinges about Gina. What a pommy whinger !

    Panadol Osteo cost very little anyway TB.

    Of course doctor …

    I take six tabs a day … and my cost will double … and for all the people much worse off than me … I simply used my experience as an example … in my case using the numbers from Wally … about $260 per annum extra …

    That the cost to patients will be better is BS … once again hitting the poorer end of town … and lying …

    And all the shiny arsed high end of town rush to defend …

    So what if they go to $0.12 ?

    Demonstrates the pure ignorance of the exercise – as usual …

    Nothing has changed … just Smiley Turncoat …

    Yer still missing the point Sir Walter … while ya sniping at me … its other people who can’t afford that sort of impost I’m concerned about … they are the most vulnerable and use those products the most … I just used my prescription meds as an example on the price change …

    Obviously way above your intellect to figure out …

    15% GST would be alright with you too …

    No discussion on:

    Negative Gearing

    Trust Funds

    Multinational Tax

    Super Tax Breaks for the Rich

    Pollies Perqs

    See the same pattern here?

    Back to the 2014 Budget everyday … and the lying about who’s better off … a prescription is cheaper than retail BTW, and by removing PBS the price goes up … to say that patients – who are also taxpayers – will be better off is not just deceitful … its outright lying …

    And BTW …

    Yet TB whinges about Gina. What a pommy whinger !

    I’m Australian … by choice and proud of it … not by accident as you are … although we don’t know where you were born, do we …

    Over at my abc tonight, annabel will have albo and mr-poodle coming out of the kitchen closet as `apparently` buddies. Somewhat `counter` to poodles comments when he was on with vandstone last time. Seems by the `trailer` it will be rather puke-worthy, and if albo really is `buddies` with poodle, then the alp is fcuked yet again, with a future `leader` with no judgement.

    lt`s good to see matilda are awake and giving my abc a poke over the airey-fairy clap-trap too armchair

    I was just reading about Joe Orton’s (and Kenneth Halliwell’s) funeral and came upon this gem:

    Dewsnap writes about Orton’s agent Peggy Ramsay: “…At the scattering of Joe’s and Kenneth’s ashes, his sister took a handful from both urns and said, ‘A little bit of Joe, and a little bit of Kenneth. I think perhaps a little bit more of our Joe, and then some more of Kenneth.’ At which Peggy snapped, ‘Come on, dearie, it’s only a gesture, not a recipe.
