Lib adviser sacked after anti-Islam web posts

After reading this, it is well worth clicking over to Jihad Watch to read Robert Spencer’s perspective on this issue. Clearly in Australia, as nearly everywhere else in the ‘free world’, truth is not a defense.

Joseph Adams.Joseph Adams … labelled a “bigot”.

THE O’Farrell government has been embarrassed by a Liberal adviser who posted anti-Islamic comments online, including a description of the Prophet Muhammad as ”the first terrorist of Islam”.

Joseph Adams, who worked in the electorate office of the Smithfield Liberal, Andrew Rohan, was sacked on Friday. Mr Adams, pictured, had angered some of his 1000 Facebook friends – which include 15 state government MPs and four ministers – with selected excerpts from the Koran which he said prove Islam promotes killing, not love.

He was labelled a ”bigot” and the ”biggest f—ing racist ever” by shocked friends.

A record of his posts between March 24 and June 17, obtained by The Sun-Herald, show the criticism only spurred him on to make more offensive remarks.

”The religious babble you refer to is Islam,” he commented on June 4. ”There was no war. It was terrorism. Muhammad was the first terrorist in the name of Islam.”

He followed up with: “Why are you getting upset? I’m not the one who is teaching others to kill in the name of Islam. Mohommed is not my hero.”

On March 24, he taunted ”friend” Faten Dabs with the comment: ”If you leave Islam it is HALAL for you to be EXECUTED. Lol. No wonder people are afraid to leave Islam.”

After being branded a bigot on Facebook , he responded: ”Your biblical quotes are as ridiculous as your comparisons. I guess you never paid attention at Sunday school. Jesus spoke in parables. Mohommed on the other hand gave orders to kill.

”You seem to like standing up for killers and murderers. Is Ivan Milat a good person too? Perhaps you think Hitler was a great Prophet too? After all he did put a book together called Mein Kampf. Don’t waste our time here Aaron. The only bigot here is someone with an uninformed view.”

Mr Adams, who identifies himself as an Australian of Assyrian Christian descent, told The Sun-Herald on Friday that he was not ”thinking politically” when he made the remarks.

”Rather than listen to what people say about the Koran I decided I would read it myself,” he said.

”It was nothing political, it was out of pure emotion. I didn’t think it would be used against me and people would accuse me of being racist.

”What I did was a mistake, I did not think it would be used for political purposes. In my mind I was living in a free society where we value free speech. Why should religion be a taboo subject?”

But the Premier, Barry O’Farrell, did not agree. Late on Friday a government spokesman said in a statement: ”The comments were totally inappropriate and the staff member has already been terminated.”

The episode is an embarrassment for Mr O’Farrell who has made it his mission to shore up so-called battler seats in western Sydney won from Labor at the election. Smithfield, one of Sydney’s most multicultural electorates, with 60 per cent of constituents born overseas, was an unexpected gain even for the most optimistic Liberals.

Among Mr Adams’ Facebook friends are the Community Services Minister, Pru Goward, Environment Minister Robyn Parker, Fair Trading Minister Anthony Roberts, and Energy Minister Chris Hartcher.

  1. Well from this and many other articles I’ve read about Australia and Islam, its clear that the Aussies or at least those in power have submitted to Islam and its evil sharia laws. had Mr. Adams commented in a similar war Im sure the Muslims in Australia would be cheering him and nobody would be calling for his removal.

    Its a sad day when a country removes freedom of speech especially when what is said is the truth. Islam is evil. Muslims are killing christians in many islamic countries. Islam is a religion of hate. Muhammad was a murder. Its no different then calling Hitler a butcher who murdered millions of jews.

    Here in America, we see the same Politically correct fools trying to silence those of us who speak out against the evils of islam and the Quran. Burn the bible and not a peep is heard. Burn the Quran and the Politically correct like Lindsey Graham, Barack Hussein Obama and many more want to put you in prison. It time to face facts. Islam is at war with the west. Islam wants to take away our free speech. Keep giving in to the Muslims and someday you will be joining the asslifter in the streets praying to Allah.

  2. The label ‘bigot’ is beginning to be associated with people with common sense, and the concept of ‘human rights’ connotes whacked-out apologists of barbarism.

    The moral inversion is complete.
