Anti-Islam banner displayed at football match in Melbourne
The banner is entirely reasonable if you have read the Koran. The Jihadis are just doing what the Koran commands. So a Muslim just has to become strongly religious to wage jihad. And hatred of Western civilization repeatedly preached in the mosques is a major influence in pushing young Muslims to Jihad. So the Muslim population as a whole is the problem. Any one of them at any time could decide to wage murderous Jihad against us. Many have done so in the past and many will do so in the future.
We should be entitled to protect ourselves from such a menace. Pretending that Islam is a religion of peace makes ostriches look alert. Brussels is the seat of the EU which has parceled out million to Muslims, including great gobs of cash to Palestinian terrorists. Did this blood money buy Belgium any goodwill?
Leader of the United Patriots Front Blake Cottrell has appeared in a video to explain the controversial reason why members of the extreme far-right political group held up a banner emblazoned with 'Stop The Mosques' at an AFL match.
Mentioning the Lindt Cafe siege and the shooting of Parramatta police worker Curtis Cheng, Mr Cottrell said in the video he is 'concerned about the future' of Australia and called for the removal of 'places of worship and segregated communities for a foreign power which [don't] like us.'
The anti-Islamic banner was unfurled during the second quarter Collingwood-Richmond match at the MCG in Melbourne on Friday night with a prominent United Patriots Front logo.
'You think i'm peddling fear? I'm concerned about the future of my country and I'm realistic about the people being brought into this country - that they aren't like us and never will be like us,' Mr Cottrell said in the video.
Following the stunt, Collingwood president Eddie McGuire calling for those responsible to be banned from attending games. 'If they have anything to do with our club, they'll be banned,' he said.
In the video, Mr Cottrell claimed the group used the banner to make 'a set of predictions' about how the AFL would react to the stunt. 'It's the left wing progressives that spread fear of social and financial strangulation if the people don't do what they ask and even the AFL is subject to them is under their control,' he said.
A video taken at the match and posted to the UPF Facebook page with the caption 'Rise Without Fear' shows the banner being hoisted up below one of the MCG's large LED screens.
The AFL issued a statement saying the actions 'no place in society' and the league would also work with police.
'Match-day security removed the banner when they became aware of it and evicted the patrons responsible.
The UPF campaign heavily against Islamic immigration, proposed mosques and halal food.
The group regularly post videos and images to their Facebook page to promote their slogans and messages that primarily discriminates against Muslims.
