Greens recent scandal: the end of the Greens?

Despite being very busy with my university exams, I just couldn’t resist writing about the latest and possibly the biggest scandal within The Greens party. A scandal that just saw two of their leaders kiss goodbye to their political life.

The media covered this news extensively, however one important question has not been raised so far and that is “why now?” I mean, why only now this issue has been brought to light?

Less than two weeks ago, the party senators voted unanimously against Lee Rhiannon’s actions to destabilise the “party room”. These senators voted to exclude Rhiannon from all “controversial” decisions.

Rhiannon had always counted on Waters and Ludlam’s support but was left extremely disappointed when only Adam Bandt sided with her.
Of course Bandt’s ambition is ultimately to become the leader of The Greens should Di Natale’s leadership be destabilised, so we can explain his support for Rhiannon.

Then comes the scandal.

Ludlam was in parliament for 9 years. No one noticed he was a dual citizen, not even after a few “concerned” citizens demanded publicly with a petition that the electoral commission check his citizenship status. Why after 9 years this story comes out?

The official story was that he attended an international conference where there were many questions about his citizenship. Another Greens senator resigned over a citizenship then it all becomes very clear. Someone is digging dirt on a certain group of Federal politicians.

The latest move to try and “restrain” Rhiannon has proved lethal.
At 66 Rhiannon still insists to become the head of the empire she had once built. She will never give up trying even if to do so would mean destroying the party altogether.

The whole saga reminds me of what happened with the Democrats. The disintegration of the party started the same way: a vicious public fight over leadership. Suddenly there were leaks on Natasha Stott Despoja ‘s attending meetings after long nights out, personal life of colleagues culminating with public infighting over the leadership.

Exactly 7 years ago I predicted that Rhiannon would destroy the party.

Today my predictions are starting to come true.

Good on you Rhiannon and good luck in destroying The Greens.

Will Ludlam stand trial for charges of fraud and wasting public money?

How could media swallow the Greens Politicians' lies that Scott Ludlam "did not know that he had NZ citizenship"... when in fact few concerned citizens initiated petition 3 years ago, after he refused to publish document that he does not have NZ citizenship, asking the parliament to take action against his illegal candidacy..

(The petition could be found on

https://www.change.org/p/scott-ludlam-show-the-public-your-new-zealand-citizen-renunciation-form-proving-you-were-not-elected-to-our-parliament-illegally#share)

We consider this to be deliberate misleading public... that could be mounted to fraud...and wasting public money in enforcing the electoral commission to re-conduct last federal election in WA... wasting millions of tax-payers money...

We cannot believe that SBS could not check this petition when it aired that the whole issue was “innocent mistake” of this politician.

Many questions should be asked here:
-How could Australian Electoral Commission not find this mistake?
- What is the need of a law if it cannot be implemented?
- Will Scott Ludlam face trial for charges of wasting public money and making fraudulent documents?

One Greens member commented after swearing on me "f... you mate, what about Abbott who is still dual citizen". Well, again: what is about Abbott? same questions above are relevant to Abbott (if he is still dual citizen until now). Also, the Greens member should remember that "two wrongs do not make a right" especially for a party that deafened our ears with "clean politics" slogan...

Hang your head in deep shame Greens party.

As a Muslim: I am also disappointed by the Australian community

After Australians refused to hear her talks on regressive Sharia Laws, Jassmin Abdel Magied resorted to her usual rhetoric: accuse all who oppose her sick claims to be Islamophobe.

Jassmin wants Australians to swallow, without any argument, that her Sharia Laws are the most feminist laws in history. Problem is, Jassmin has not told us which Sharia Laws she endorses.

Is it the Wahhabi Sharia, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Sudan style?
Is it the Shia Sharia, similar to Iranian society?
Secular Sharia like in Egypt, Jordan and most of the Muslim countries

Jassmin who chose to visit countries that enforce repressive Sharia Laws (Saudi Arabia and Sudan), needs to convince me as a Muslim before trying to convince non-Muslims, how Sharia Laws are feminist? These claims are laughable and I will not debate them here.

Not only I’m disappointed with Jassmin and all her extremist supporters but I’m also disappointed by the Australian system and society.

I am deeply disappointed that Australia has allowed extreme Muslims to flourish. Where suburbs like Auburn and Lakemba are ruled by extremist thugs.

I am disappointed that the Australian government has poured millions of tax-payers money to support extreme Islamic organisations and allowed them to spread their extreme version of Islam in our society.

I am disappointed that Australia has not cracked down enough on extreme ideologies that promote underage marriage, polygamy and support for extreme jihad (both locally and overseas).

I am disappointed that our authorities are giving extremists like Jassmin full air and space as a representative of Muslims, while shutting down genuine moderate Muslims.

I am disappointed that Jassmin and other extremists can receive millions of dollars travelling to spread extremism, while moderate Muslim organisations are refused grants of less than $5000.

I am disappointed that both authorities and media have never really promoted an intelligent and factual debate on Sharia Law. It should have been allowed for people who lived under Saudi Sharia Laws to voice their personal experiences and the reality of the oppression and discrimination.

Lastly I am disappointed that Australian authorities have not helped Jassmin to voluntarily remove herself from this secular democratic society so that she could enjoy the privileges of living under Saudi Sharia Laws.

This of course does not mean that Australia is free from Islamophobia, racism and discrimination. But not the Islamophobia Jassmin talks about.

Of course we all condemn any attack on Jassmin or any other community member.

The same courtesy wasn’t extended to myself and other members of the Muslim community who were attacked by Wahhabi extremist. I guess that for Jassmine, we were not the “right kind” of Muslims.

It is the time for the ABC (especially) to stop supporting extremism.
