My good friend and fellow Sandpit author Ray has for some time been trying to convince me that my concerns about Islam in this country are unfounded and his argument is essentially that “it won’t happen here” but when I here and see the atrocities being committed in Iraq by people who are Australian citizens I can’t be as sanguine
Another shows Sharrouf dressed in camouflage fatigues and posing with his three young sons, the flag of the Islamic State displayed behind them. In this image, just like their father, the boys are dressed in dull green fatigues. And, like dad, they are all holding guns. They appeared to be aged around four, six and seven.
But it is the image that security agencies believe is Sharrouf’s son, struggling to hold the head of the decapitated soldier, that is utterly shocking. The little boy is dressed as if heading out for a picnic. He is wearing a pair of checked pants and a blue shirt, with the insignia, Polo Golf Kids. He has a green cap on his head and a blue plastic watch on. Over his shoulders he has ammunition pouches.
There have been other photos posted from this town square in Raqqa by Sharrouf — about a week ago he posted photographs of decapitated heads on spikes. Sharrouf’s friend and fellow Islamic State fighter, the former boxer Mohamed Elomar, was also pictured, a severed head in each hand, a wide grin on his face.
In those images it appeared that the men had been killed recently. However, in the most recent photographs featuring Sharrouf and his son, the heads had blackened and bloated, having been dead for a week. In the photograph, the sandals of other children can be seen in the background, suggesting other kids may be waiting for their turn to hold the head.
The thing that concerns me is that neither Sharrouf nor Elomar have been positively influenced by their lives in this country and I can’t escape the nagging thought that the fault for that has something to do with the sort of “hands off” and “don’t critque any aspect of an immigrant’s culture” mindset that is integral to the ideology of “multiculturalism” as it has been practiced here If any sort of cultural critique is avoided or actively discouraged then we get the likes of Sharrouf and Elomar going on their head chopping holidays. But it actually gets worse that the reports in the Oz suggests in fact the brutality of these Muslims is so horrible that I was only able to have the most perfunctory look at this report (VERY HORRIBLE GRAPHIC IMAGES) which contains imaged of young children and babies murdered and decapitated in the name of ALLAH. I’m sorry but there is nothing that justifies this sort of deliberate brutality and any religion that would endorse such a thing has no place in this country either.
So I can’t help but hope that the US airstrikes kill every last one of these murdering scum bags Heck I’m almost convinced that there is an argument for using tactical nukes on these fanatics.
Now I know that apologists for Islam will tell me that the majority of Muslim Australians are not all like Sharrouf and Elomar and I have no trouble accepting that. However that small truth hides a bigger and more important fact and that is that at its heart Islam is just not suitable or at all consistent with a modern secular society that embraces personal autonomy and freedom of thought. Which naturally suggests that we should be very cautious indeed about accepting any further Muslim immigrants and that our security services are not whistling Dixie when they talk about the threats we face from Jihadists like Sharrouf and Elomar.
