Despite a Muslim recently saving Paul Sheehan's bacon (see my 7/10/14 post Paul Sheehan's Narrow Escape), the Fairfax calumnist's momentarily softened heart has once again hardened against the fanatical Mohammedan hordes and their false religion:
"A de facto world war is under way and it has everything to do with Islam. It is not thousands of lone wolves. It is not un-Islamic conduct. It involves thousands of Muslims acting on what they believe is their religious duty to subjugate non-believers, as outlined in the Koran. And the problem is growing, not increasing." (Crimes have everything to do with Islamic faith, 12/1/15)
Charlie Hebdo? Not really. More like memories of a footloose youth. Memories of a time when hair was king, and hippie chicks beckoned and called; when Journey to the East and Dharma Bums were required reading; when a joint was something you inhaled, not complained about; when one could ride the Kombi along the hippie trail all the way to London. Above all, a time when the natives knew their place and obligingly parted way for the hippie hordes:
"Young Australians used to travel overland from Singapore to London. That route has become a hell-hole. Pakistan is dangerous. Afghanistan is a no-go area. Iran is an oppressive theocracy. Iraq is disintegrating. Syria is a disaster area. Lebanon is dangerous. In Turkey, for the first time, Australians travelling to Gallipoli will be going under a security alert. All these Muslim countries used to be safe to travel in."
So what happened? Islam... obviously.
