Islam is sedition.
If a Muslim follows all the tenets of Islam, to the letter, he/she is not only seditious against the state, but a promoter of violent jihad against everyone else not a Sunni Muslim 101’er. Lets hope that the story is true and more importantly, used to its fullest intent.
Australia’s terrorism laws ‘could criminalise preaching from Qur’an’
National imams council tells parliamentary committee that Muslim preachers on social justice could face charges

Preaching from parts of the Qur’an calling on Muslims to defend their land could fall foul of Australia’s new counter-terrorism laws, senior Islamic clerics fear.
The Australian National Imams Council said the proposed broadening of the offence of advocating terrorism to include those who “promote” and “encourage” violence would have “serious implications on free speech and will have a chilling effect on legitimate religious and political debate”.
In a submission to the parliamentary joint committee on intelligence and security on Wednesday, the organisation, which represents 250 imams around Australia, said a member could find himself charged with advocating terrorism “if he for example advocated the duty of a Muslim to defend his land”.
“This provision is of particular concern to preachers who spend a large proportion of their time teaching and advocating on social justice issues,” the submission said.
Other Muslim groups raised similar concerns about the foreign fighters bill, the second tranche of the new measures.
At hearings before the committee on Wednesday, barrister Ertunc Yasar Ozen from the Muslim Legal Network (MLN) said he was concerned that “reciting verses from the Qur’an in a sermon … could be interpreted as advocating a terrorist act”.
The MLN has called for an exemption for “historical religious stories being used in sermons”.
