Last week, Australia took a step forward in controlling its Islam problem when it vowed to crack down on Muslim immigration, terrorists and imams. This week it took two steps backwards.
The Australian Defence Force is set to get its first Muslim Imam as part of a push to attract more recruits from different cultural and language backgrounds.
Assistant Defence Minister Stuart Robert announced on Monday he was asking Defence to “renew efforts” on recruiting a more “culturally and linguistically diverse workforce”.
Part of this is to find an Imam – an Islamic religious leader – to serve on the ADF’s religious advisory committee, which provides advice to the force on policies to meet its personnel’s spiritual needs.
“I have asked my department to move as quickly as possible to identify a part-time Islamic Imam to join the ADF’s religious advisory committee to ensure those 96 ADF members of an Islamic faith have appropriate representation,” Mr Robert said in a speech to Parliament.
The part-time Imam will join one Jewish and five Christian religious leaders who make up the committee. He will serve in a policy advisory role – a first for the ADF – but will not provide pastoral care as do Christian Chaplains in the force.
He said there would also be a “dedicated recruitment strategy” to target sections of the community from which soldiers, sailors and airmen and women are not typically drawn.
Mr Robert stressed this was not about appearances or “social engineering” but rather was vital to making the ADF a better fighting force.
“This strategy … is born out of the stark reality that combat power will be enhanced,” he said.
No evidence that’s ever worked anywhere. Although Hitler created a Muslim unit.
The Kingdom has donated $1 million to the Islamic Museum in Australia (IMA). Presenting a check to Australian Foreign Minister Julie Joseph, Saudi Ambassador Nabil bin Mohammed Al-Saleh said the donation was given by the Saudi leadership in order to promote human values among nations in support of peaceful co-existence among all communities. Al-Saleh said that the Kingdom was interested in projecting the correct image of Islam.
The center will provide educational and cross-cultural instruction and showcase the artistic and cultural heritage of Muslims in Australia and in Muslim societies everywhere. It aims to foster community harmony and facilitate an understanding of the values and contributions of Muslims to Australian society.
Blood money? Muslims are wreaking havoc on community harmony all across Australia. Just this year already 1,000 Muslims rallied against Charlie Hebdo and the freedom of speech and a Muslim took hostages in a Sydney cafe, forcing them to hold an Islamic flag in the window and killing two.
These steps are all part of 100 years of jihad against Australia that continues to this day.
