Event notice: The Art of Da'wah

Adelaide Now: Melbourne university hosts extremist Muslim group in the wake of Sydney shooting

AN EXTREMIST Muslim group held a conference at a Melbourne university over the weekend as the country reels from the shooting of a NSW police worker by a radicalised teenager.

Just a day after Friday’s fatal shooting, a controversial conference organised by fundamentalist Islamic group, the Islamic Research and Educational Academy, was held at Deakin University, The Australian reports.

The IREA’s two-day workshops were based on the teachings of Islamic scholars who have recommended the death penalty for homosexuals and apostates, promoted terrorism and preached hatred of Jews and Christians and violence against women.

Media gathered at Deakin’s Burwood campus on Sunday, but the IREA says on its Facebook page they were not allowed inside the venue as “the event was pre-registered”.

The event, dubbed ‘The Art of Da’wah’, was hosted by the ultraconservative Salafist organisation’s president Waseem Razvi.

The workshops promised to use the teachings of “legendary” scholars Zakir Naik and Ahmed Deedat to help attendees “learn the art and gain the confidence to talk about Islam to anyone, anywhere and at any time”.

Dr Naik, an Indian Muslim preacher who is a medical doctor by education, has been banned from countries including Britain, Canada and parts of India for his rhetorical support for terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

Sheik Deedat, who died in 2005, was a South African Muslim missionary of Indiadescent whose books have been banned from sale in France since 1994 for being “violently anti-Western, anti-Semitic and inciting to racial hate.”

Deakin corporate communications director Sarah Dolan yesterday told The Australian that there were no clear grounds to cancel the event at the last minute — adding that the university will closely watch on how the group conduct themselves.

Sacramento Bee: Australia to deport American anti-abortion activist

SYDNEY – An American anti-abortion activist is expected to be deported from Australia, after the nation’s highest court ruled Friday that he posed a threat to public order amid concerns he could incite violence against women.

Troy Newman, president of the Kansas-based anti-abortion group Operation Rescue, was detained at Melbourne Airport on Thursday after trying to enter Australia even though officials had already canceled his visa.

The battle to prevent Newman from coming to Australia for a speaking tour began earlier this week, after a lawmaker sent a letter to Immigration Minister Peter Dutton saying Newman could pose a threat to community safety.

“I am most concerned that Mr. Newman’s call for abortionists to be executed could lead to threats or the commission of acts of violence against women and medical professionals,” wrote Terri Butler, a member of the opposition Labor Party.

Immigration officials then revoked Newman’s visa.

Newman, who co-authored a book that suggested doctors who perform abortions are committing a crime egregious enough to warrant the death penalty, denied that he posed a threat to anyone.

“The revocation was based on a pile of lies, including the idea that I promote violence,” Newman wrote on his Facebook page on Wednesday. “My 25 year history of peaceful, prayerful action speaks for itself.”

Give murders are free go, but someone who is trying to save lives gets the boot!

Not so surprising considering the efforts to stop Wilders and the trouble Spencer and Geller had to speak here.
