The Shoat Statements

Random musings by the multiple voices inside my head.

A Sri Lankan man, Mohammed Ilham Fareed, decides to migrate to Australia. With his wife. That was back in 2005. Less than 5 years later, he falls foul of the law. Why, I hear you ask. Well, He groped the breasts of three female Brisbane bus passengers. The purported excuse was that he had an infatuation with Australian women
The whole adventure of exactly what he did and how he was caught can be found on the link at the end of this post.

I mean last I checked, migrants tried their best to behave in foreign countries, lest they be deported. And this man had a WIFE at home, whom he could presumably grope at will (breasts are breasts, aren't they?). Now the Australian courts had the perfect opportunity to get rid of such an undesirable from their country. How? Well, a 12-month jail sentence means that this the Fareed would risk failing Federal Government's character test, and therefore deportation.

So what do you suppose the courts, presided over by a female judge (Judge Helen O'Sullivan) did? They figured that Fareed was precisely the kind of exemplary rogue...ooops...citizen that Australia needed. So they gave him a 10 month sentence, topping it off with parole on the 17th of November. Those three women must be checking out all the vehicle dealerships in Brisbane as we speak.

I just don't get it. It was a FEMALE judge. He assaulted THREE women. He is not a native, he is an IMMIGRANT. Why is the law trying to help him pass a character test that in any really sense he very obviously fails?

Eve teasing is a very serious offence, and it is very much part and parcel of violence against women. As a Sri Lankan, I find the story shameful, and as a woman I find it offensive. As a potential immigrant, I find the whole thing ludicrous. Over and above everything, I'd like to put a hole in that judge's head. http://www.southasianmedia.net/cnn.cfm?id=424710&category=Law&Order&Country=SRI%20LANKA

A sweet, touching (and real) story about how a British lady holidayed in Sri Lanka, and ended up starting a charity that rescued the poor, street dogs that are abused by all and sundry on a daily basis.

It is heartening to know that there are people who will undertake to fix problems and help the innocents that always end up suffering due to our own idiocies.

Why is it that dog (and cat) owners in Sri Lanka are unable to use their heads when raising pets? Pets are routinely left unneutered, and the ensuing litter of babies are almost always left on a road side far, far away from their own residences. Pet ownership should be via a license, much like driving. Those not mature enough to plan ahead shouldn't know the joy of having pets.

In light of yesterday's post, I thought I'd also ad some simple, hard hitting ads on how much we destroy the environment around us.

Copy reads:


The effect of greenhouse pollution heats planet. It is now necessary to act.









At the rate we're going, our environment will soon look like this.




One of the strongest ads.










“If children were brought into the world by an act of pure reason alone, would the human race continue to exist? Would a man rather have so much sympathy with the coming generation, as to spare it the burden of existence? Or at any rate not take it upon himself to impose that burden upon it in cold blood.”

~Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) Sufferings of the World 1851


Everyday, I learn something new. But on certain specific days, you learn something truly radical. Today, I was introduced to the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement. Yes, there is truly such a movement. Their objective – by voluntarily reducing the human population, we will allow the earth’s biosphere to return to what it should be.

I thought it quite bizarre, and bordering on comic, but when one actually goes through the site – it really does make sense. No other species, or even group of species, has done more harm to this planet than Homo Sapiens. Why should all animal and plant species suffer for our inexhaustible greed, ignorance and destructive tendencies?

Radical it may be, but I think it's an excellent idea. After all, people don’t have sex to have children – they have sex because it’s enjoyable. Is it not possible for us to have a fulfilling life, without having children? I myself have always been a strong advocate of adoption – orphanages are brimming with kids who need a home. What’s the point in having your own kids if you can have what you want and make the world a better place?
Just so that you have some idea of the destruction you alone cause this planet, go to http://www.climatecrisis.net/takeaction/carboncalculator/ and check it out. Do you really want to multiply that number by the number of kids you plan to have?

In essence, VHEM is encouraging us to limit our reproductive tendencies to one, or preferably no, children. They ask:

In light of the 40,000 children dying of malnutrition each day, and considering the number of species going extinct as a result of our excessive reproduction, do you think it would be a good idea to create another of yourself?

What would your answer be?

In brief, 8 suspects, aged between 16 - 21 have been arrested in Israel. What are they accused off? Being Nazis. That's right - 8 Israeli boys, who go about attacking homosexuals, traditional Jews, foreign workers and drug addicts. Sadder still is the fact that they frequently video taped their attacks. Their homes too, were mini shrines to Adolf Hitler.

WTF? What on earth is this world coming to, if young Israeli boys can turn to Nazism? Israel, born essentially because of the holocaust, inadvertently has given birth to the very Nazis they were escaping from. I find that I can't write anything further than summarizing the incident.

It's shocking, and more disturbingly, it scares me. I guess it's true what they say - you are your own worst enemy.
