New Zealand

Your chance to listen to Ayaan Hirsi Ali one of the 100 most influential people in the world

In April 2017, women’s rights activist, champion of free speech and best-selling author Ayaan Hirsi Ali will make her first appearance in New Zealand to discuss the current world political climate, Islam, and a plethora of other vital topics.
Infidel. Heretic. Apostate. Ayaan Hirsi Ali has courted controversy over her years in the public eye, earning widespread criticism amongst the liberal left and death threats from the religious right. April will see her come in Auckland to add her voice to the heated debate about Islam’s place in a modern liberal democracy.

The people who wrote this promo are either ill informed or are being deliberately obtuse. Since when was Islam considered the religious right? They can’t even say it. The death threats are from MUSLIMS!

The victimhood narrative is already well underway in New Zealand

Stuff caption for photo: “The woman appeared to direct vicious racial slurs towards the group of Muslim friends.”
** But Islam is not a race and if you watch the video NOT ONE racist thing is actually said.

We can expect stories like this one to appear in our media more and more frequently as it is the exact same pattern that has occurred in every other Western country including Australia when the Muslim population was still a small percentage of the population. I have written before about the victimhood pyramid and New Zealand’s Maori are going to find out the hard way that their victimhood status is going to be put below the victimhood status of New Zealand Muslims. The same thing has happened in America to Gay Americans who have found that Liberals will put the rights of Muslim Americans over their rights every time.

Muslim activists are very adept at getting their victimhood narrative into the media early and building on the perception that they are the victims of intolerance when in reality it is their religion that is intolerant of gays, women’s rights, and other religions. I think that it is highly likely that the professional and educated Mehpara Khan is an activist as that is another pattern with victimhood news stories like this one. They always seemed to be fronted by a university educated, articulate Muslim woman.

An example of the 90-day trial being used for the wrong reasons

From Trademe message board-screenshot-Whaleoil

I have always been a big fan of the 90-day trial as I have always believed that it is good for both employer and employee. It means that someone who lacks experience will be given an opportunity to prove themselves where previously they wouldn’t have been given a chance as the employer would be stuck with them if they turned out to be a dud.

The domino effect of Resolution 2334 continues

UN Resolution 2334 sponsored by the chairman of the security council, Murray McCully, whose strings were pulled by John Kerry and outgoing President Obama, sent a message to the Palestinians that Jerusalem was theirs. Now PLO President Abbas is pulling out all the stops to try to stop incoming President Trump from moving the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Why is he so against it? It is because it sends a strong counter message that the US recognises Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and therefore does not see it as Palestinian land.

Interestingly New Zealand shows its lack of diplomatic respect for Israel by locating its Israeli embassy not inside Israel but inside the Muslim majority country Turkey in their capital Ankara. We recognise the capitals of Muslim states so why don’t we recognise the capital of Israel?

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas sent letters to a number of world leaders on Monday urging them to prevent the stated goal of the incoming administration of US President-elect Donald Trump to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. to the official PA news outlet Wafa, Abbas sent letters to the heads of Russia, China, France, Germany, Britain, the European Union, the African Union, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the presidency of the Non-Aligned Movement and the Arab League secretary general, “asking them to spare no effort in preventing the US embassy from moving to Jerusalem”

Of Golden Showers and Errant Quokkas

 

Which is more quaint—supposed intelligence agencies hawking fake tabloid trash, or Kiwis worried about a rare mammal? And is there any common ground here?

The Quokka story on Stuff is far more quaint; it involves an interesting animal, whereas the American story is just grotesque. But the common ground is newsreaders’ desire for something relatively light and breezy, rather than relentless news about politics and immigration.

Americans and New Zealanders have much more in common: they are both ex-British colonies that have established independence across the world from their ancestral lands. They are both historically white, European and Christian. And they are both under attack.

So once the quokka is found, and the American press finds another hoax to scandalise about, it will be time to return, as unpleasant as it is, to the pressing matters of the day, which are indeed: politics and immigration.

McCully lied, the resolution is substantially different from New Zealand and the United State’s previous positions

I told leaders from AIPAC that Israel has unequivocal evidence that the Obama administration led the effort to pass the anti-Israel resolution in the UN Security Council. There is no question whatsoever about that. None whatsoever.

I also said that the text of the Security Council resolution was not a reformulation of things that all previous administrations said, but was in fact a major break with US policy. Listen to my explanation, and please share it with people who have their facts wrong.
