Default Islamic Sign on the Beach - is it from the far right?



Sign on Black Rock Beach (Melbourne) this morning (Australia Day)

I suspect it is an attempt at being divisive by a far right group. Consider the groups mentioned on the bottom of the sign - there is an organisation called the Islamic Council of Victoria, but from what I could see on Google there isn't a SUPREME Islamic Council of Victoria, and as far as I know there is not a City of Greater Melbourne.

I think it is just an attempt to discredit Muslims by someone with an anti- Muslim agenda. I really doubt that this has been done by a Muslim group.

Sign does not look like it cost $5000 to make so I also doubt its authenticity.

More than a bit. The animals depicted look too cute and friendly to be drawn by people who regard such animals as unclean.

It looks very much like paper stuck over an existing sign. Particularly around the edges and the top screw.

Although I've seen more ridiculous reports about Muslims shared on facebook and with huge numbers of likes and anti-Muslim comments.

Some Muslims are dicks. Some Christians are dicks and some atheists dicks. If we want Muslims to be more like "us" then we need to put an end to all the "othering" that goes on. That is something the haters don't get.

@142857: So, definitely a dick, but the jury's out on whether or not it was barabarically circumcised?

My circumcision apparently wasn't barbaric because my parents were Christian.

If only their bibles had Galatians 5 in larger print, you'd still have your bit o' calamari.

Docs tend to be really arrogant in that regard. When I was a puppy I went to the dentist to get some wisdom teeth removed. Dentist swore on all that is holy to give me the teeth afterword. He didn't, the tosser.
