How civilization dies: Australian council bans new synagogue for fear of Islamic terror

How civilization dies: Australian council bans new synagogue for fear of Islamic terror

The terrorists win, this time without having to fire a shot.

This is how the terrorists win, and civilization dies.

From Australia, Bondi synagogue ban over terrorism risk leaves Jewish community shocked and furious:

A LOCAL council has banned the construction of a synagogue in Bondi because it could be a terrorist target, in a shock move that religious leaders say has caved in to Islamic extremism and created a dangerous precedent.

The decision, which has rocked the longstanding Jewish community in the iconic suburb, was upheld in court this week as the nation reeled from the alleged airline terror threat and debate raged over increased security measures at airports and other public places.

The Land and Environment Court backed the decision by Waverley Council to prohibit the construction of the synagogue in Wellington St, Bondi — just a few hundred metres from Australia’s most famous beach — because it was too much of a security risk for users and local residents.

Jewish leaders are shocked the decision appears to suggest they cannot freely practice their religion because they are the target of hate by Islamist extremists — and that the council has used their own risk assessment of the threat posed by IS against it….

Ironically, the council and the Land and Environment Court appeared to use the proposal’s own risk assessment and security measures in the proposed design — including using setback buildings and blast walls — as evidence the site was too much of a security risk.

Yet in a classic catch-22, the council also said if the design was changed to boost security this would be unacceptable because it would be too unsightly.

The Australian further reports:

Waverley Council objected to large blast-walls proposed for the synagogue because of their visual impact, but also used the measures drawn up by those planning to build the synagogue to argue that if such security was required people moving around the place of worship could be at risk.

“The stated need for protective walls raises concern as to the safety and security of people outside but near the synagogue,” the council argued.

The court heard “strong anti-Semitic undertones pervade much of ISIS’s online presence and literature” had “manifested itself in both attacks and prevented attacks that have been aimed at Jewish communities in various parts of the world”.

The Bondi beach area of Sydney has experienced anti-Semitic attacks, as we covered in 2014, Anti-Semitic attack on Sydney school bus, threaten to cut Jewish children’s throats.

That was not the only incident:

Australia uber alles?

Uh, no – it’s gonna be more like “Death to Australia.”
Could these people have a leadership class as suicidal as Sweden’s?

This is the Heckler’s Veto taken to a higher level. And the amazing thing here is that the local government is doing the bidding of the Muslims.

    Bear with me here.
    Over the years I’ve noticed the Second Amendment isn’t just about guns – it’s also about a certain attitude. An attitude of self-reliance, of not needing others to protect you or make choices for you regarding your safety.

    Take away people’s firearms and over time their entire attitude changes. It turns from, “Leave me alone.” to one of, “Oh god, please don’t hurt me!” A big and far reaching difference. Very convenient for anyone who thinks they should naturally be in charge. You can see it in America within a single state. Look at Texas. Then look at Austin.

    Australia got rid of guns. And it’s attitude is changing.

Revise the national anthem to “Retreat Australia Scared!”

This is sickening. And I’m not Jewish.

Surrender on display. There are only two options when confronted by evil–destroy the evil or be destroyed by it. Appeasement leads to the latter.

For some psychological insight into the minds of the Australian, Swedish, the French, the British left and beta-males of the American left (obama to mccain to normal lear), who race to surrender to radical islamists:

The ecstasy of surrender:

“You can sabotage success by pushing too hard. Surrender is the antidote to stress in a world that relentlessly conspires to interrupt creative thought….”

Alpha males like Donald Trump do not find ‘ecstasy’ in surrender. Either do we.

    Much as I loath the modern McAnus, he endured six years of torture and imprisonment while your “Alpha Male” coward, Der Donald, avoided STDs and equated that with service in the military during war.

    Whatever you think of the transcripts of Donelle’s conversations with other leaders, one of the things that comes across loud and clear is what a pussy (his word) T-rump is, and how obsessed with how he looks to others he is. There was very little mention of what was good for America…just a lot of whining about how he’ll look.

      What? Can’t stand the #realism…???

      It’s all true. And what really galls you down-thumbers is that’s all you can do in the face of your own denial of the truth.

Clinton: “Donald -Ruth Ginsberg is dead! Please! Please! – Let me take her place!

Donald: “Well…ok with me. But you should ask the funeral home if it’s ok with them.”

There could very well be an upside to this though.

Using the sane argument every time a mosque is proposed it’s clear that the building should be banned given these sites would attract terrorists this be a risk to people around the site.

Or is that racist?

First they lose their courage, then they lose their principles, and finally they lose their civilization and culture.

This action now gives the anti-semites a way to ban Jewish establishments.

Great civilizations aren’t murdered, they commit suicide.

Bloody bunch of poofters is what they are.

The headline is wrong, and the story is wrong in putting the blame on Waverly Council. The synagogue never took its proposal to the council, opting instead to go straight to the Land and Environment Court, presumably in the expectation that it would get a better result there. Instead it got this decision, but for some reason the press reports are blaming the council, which had nothing to do with it. What the council would have done, had it been asked, is a matter for speculation.

“There could very well be an upside to this though.

Using the sane argument every time a mosque is proposed it’s clear that the building should be banned given these sites would attract terrorists this be a risk to people around the site.”

No. No. No. Different rules for religions that kill non believers.

UPDATE: After all the fuss, the synagogue had a productive meeting with Waverly Council, and have agreed that they will submit a new development application with a revised security assessment, and if they can work everything out they could get approval as early as December. After 11 years’ waiting, that’s not bad.
