Australia: Taxpayer-funded study urges “sensitivity” to Muslim migrants who beat their wives

“A taxpayer funded study has made the audacious claim that Australians need to show ‘cultural sensitivity’ towards migrant men who physically abuse their wife and children….The study refers to some refugees claiming that these rights ‘contravene the cultural values, norms and mores’ of their ethnic groups…Yet the study has faced strong resistance in the shape of federal Minister for Women Michaelia Cash who has stated Australia is categorically against family violence.”

This problem may not be solved now, but it will have to be faced eventually, not just in Australia but in all non-Muslim countries: are Muslims allowed to break the law of the land in order to follow their religion, or is the law of the land paramount? Will wife-beating be legal or illegal, or legal if you’re Muslim but not if you’re not Muslims?

Such questions will determine whether or not free societies will survive.

 

“Australians should show ‘sensitivity’ to migrants whose cultures ‘don’t value women’s and child’s rights’ claims new domestic violence study,” by Tom Flanagan, Daily Mail Australia, June 16, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A taxpayer funded study has made the audacious claim that Australians need to show ‘cultural sensitivity’ towards migrant men who physically abuse their wife and children.

The study conducted over a three year period was funded by the Australian Research Council and points out that some human rights affect migrants’ integration and ‘successful settlement in Australia’, specifically those in relation to women and children.

The study refers to some refugees claiming that these rights ‘contravene the cultural values, norms and mores’ of their ethnic groups, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Yet the study has faced strong resistance in the shape of federal Minister for Women Michaelia Cash who has stated Australia is categorically against family violence.

‘Violence against women is unacceptable in any circumstances,’ Ms Cash told The Saturday Telegraph.

The study has however called for ‘cultural sensitivity and understanding of the impact on male refugees’ who suffer a sense of separation and an overwhelming feeling of disappointment when their views are repulsed by society.

The report did point out refugees’ appreciation for the factors of Australian life such as healthcare and education that were not available to them in their home nations, yet a ‘major point of contention’ was the differing views on women’s and children’s rights.

What was most upsetting for many refugees was the strong stance Australians had when it came to domestic violence.

It will be this Australian ethos that will repel the study’s findings with many in union with Prevention of Domestic Violence Minister Pru Goward who insists wife beaters must ‘change their ways.’

A recent example of the nation’s position on the matter was its reaction towards Sydney primary school teacher Reem Allouche telling the women’s arm of hardline political group Hizb ut-Tahrir that men are permitted to hit women with sticks….

Islam news from Canada

Toronto Critic of Islamism Told: ‘I Have a Gun For You’…

 

Toronto Sun columnist Tarek Fatah was waiting for the bus at St. Michael’s Hospital when a taxi pulled up to him not to offer a ride but to deliver a threat.

“The guy spoke to me in my native language of Urdu,” Fatah said Friday. “He said he recognized my face and then said ‘I have a gun for you.’”

He drove off.

But when stopped at a nearby red light at Church and Queen Sts., even with his limited mobility after major surgery, the former leader of the Muslim Canadian Congress wandered over with the help of his cane and took a picture of the taxi and driver.

“I have turned all of that over to Toronto Police.”

Fatah admits he was stunned.

“It was a death threat no question. I have had them before but it still shakes you,” said the 67-year-old author, who “has been fighting Islamism since 1966.”

Most of Fatah’s recent threats have emanated out of India, where he worked on a TV show last year and talked openly about his quarrel with the “Muslim Brotherhood approach” to Islam.

The allegation of such a threat, or religious hate of any kind, is so sad because we have free speech in Canada and such acceptance of all faiths and races. We have seen despicable, fatal hate crimes on Muslims, Jews and Christians and it is unacceptable every time it happens.

Fatah’s voice is important because it’s unleashed.

With photographer Craig Robertson, we noticed in his house he had 18 Qurans and many other books in Islam. Fatah is a proud Muslim who does not feel those who use his religion for evil are genuine followers of the faith. He has drawn a lot of criticism from some who feel differently.

For example, as my Toronto Sun colleague Brad Hunter reported in April, police in Mumbai stopped an ISIS hit on Fatah that was ordered because of “contentious issues related to Islam” as reported in the Times of India. Two men were arrested.

But he didn’t expect that animus to travel all the way over here in Canada.

Fatah has been vocal on his views about sections of the Quran that talk of “Jews and Christians” going estray, which were not in the original book “but added 200 years later.”

He says he would like to see all such mentions “taken out” since “they were not in the Quran in the first place.”

Doing that, he feels, could prevent those who favour a radicalized form of Islam from citing passages “that are merely hearsay added into the Quran” and could help dissuade hardcore followers of the religion to not part take in Jihads and holy wars.

“They want to silence me for exposing the true nature of Islamism and preventing Sharia law coming to Canada,” said Fatah. “I won’t be silenced about that.”

Toronto Police confirm they are investigating this incident and have told Fatah they have identified the taxi driver and will interview him.

As for the cabbie and his “I have a gun for you” comment, Fatah says if he is “apologetic” and “acknowledges that threatening a Canadian person for having his own opinion is not okay” he would be prepared to let it go with a hope threats on his life will not end up becoming a reality.

But for now Fatah says his complaint to Toronto Police 51 Division stands.
