In summary, what is promoted by the ICV is unrestricted terrorism; that a Muslim should do all of the acts called for by the Koran and hadith; and that doing these acts makes one a Muslim, not an "extremist" or "Islamist".

Atheism has no respect for Islam, or any other religion. Atheism rejects any claim that any religion, including Islam, has anything "positive" to offer. Islamic doctrine calls for violence and hatred. No critic of religion can call the pursuit of what is called for in the Koran or hadith "positive". Islam is the pursuit of war until all are Muslim. For Muslims this is a "positive" since it is "god's command" and criticism of this pursuit is deemed "negative" and indicative of the "intolerance" of the critic

From Humanist Transhumanist website, April 2012 expanding on the essay explaining the painting attempting the destruction of the secular muse:

"individuals who though born to the faith of mandatory hate, but who might not practice hate, should not be considered as 'moderate' representatives of this religion simply because they are incapable of OVERriding their innate humanity.
Such persons are NOT 'moderate' Muslims, they are persons who cannot OVERride their humanity, their human conscience, despite the exhortations to commit violence, and despite the threats of punishment if they do not commit violence. Such 'moderates' are people whose human values prevent them from fulfilling their religious obligation. Such 'moderates' are 'moderate' DESPITE Islam, not because of it.

The ICV proves my point:


The Islamic Council of Victoria advocates for the right of Muslims to observe Islam and practice it without restriction. In Islam, to restrict a Muslim from doing what is ordered in the Koran or hadith is called "oppression".

The ICV promotes "the good". The values propounded in the Koran and hadith, which includes waging jihad, define "good".

The purpose of the ICV is to support those "given guidance". Guidance is the instructions humanity is meant to follow which can be found in the Koran and hadith.

And the ICV proclaims that "the most detested [of] people" are those who "engage in argumentation"; that is, those who argue against the values and instructions found in the Koran and hadith.

The values and acts called for in the Koran and hadith, "guidance", have to be accepted without analytical thinking, without applying reason. To apply reason is called "argumentation" and this makes one "most detested" (it is considered to be the limited-human element challenging the unlimited-divine).

The ICV proclaims its role:
Islamic council of victoria - jihad is an act of good - only the intolerant would criticise it

The ICV represents (the Australian state of) Victoria's Muslims. These are Sunna (this excludes Shia, Sufi, others, who are deemed apostate);

The ICV seeks to "empower" Muslims. This means that the ICV advocates for the right of Muslims to act according to Islamic doctrine, the Koran and hadith (that is, live by Sharia) as this is demanded by doctrine

The ICV seeks the "Promotion of [a] positive understanding of Islam, Muslims and issues important to Muslims"

The ICV seeks "tolerance and respect between all faiths". Criticising Islam therefore equates to intolerance and disrespect.

The "tolerance" demanded by the ICV means that the principles found in the Koran and hadith should be "respected" by other faiths targeted by Islam. Even though the Koran calls other faiths, for example Christianity, a "monstrous blasphemy", and Christians "unbelievers", the ICV demands such views should be respected and not criticised.

ICV calls for other faiths to tolerate the intolerance of Islam.

The Koran proclaims that the Jews have been eternally cursed by god ("Allah")

The Koran proclaims that Christians are not merely unbelievers, but partake in a monstrous unforgivable blasphemy:

KORAN, "Allah made a covenant with the Israelites ... But because they broke their covenant We laid on them Our curse ...They have perverted the words of the Scriptures... " The Table 5.11 (Dawood translation)

KORAN, “Unbelievers are those that say: 'Allah [God] is the Messiah, the son of Mary.' ... Unbelievers are those that say: 'Allah is one of three.' The Table 5.72-74 (Dawood translation)

KORAN "Those who say: 'The Lord of Mercy has begotten a son,' preach a monstrous falsehood, at which the very heavens might crack, the earth break asunder, and the mountains crumble to dust." Mary 19.88 (Dawood translation)

KORAN " ...admonish those who say that Allah has begotten a son... a monstrous blasphemy is that which they utter. They preach nothing but falsehoods." The Cave 18.2 -5 (Dawood translation)

According to the ICV other faiths should be tolerant of what is ordered against them by the Koran and hadith, such as jihad waged against them until they are all made Muslim, and not criticise such exhortations, as jihad is part of Sunna (Islam). To criticise these elements would demonstrate their "intolerance" of Islam. Criticising Islam is against Sharia.

Promoting a positive image of Islam means:

1) calling critics of Islam "promoters of disharmony and intolerance";
2) calling anyone who quotes the Koran or hadith to condemn its exhortations, or calling those who criticise Muslims for acting in accordance to the exhortations found in the Koran and hadith (such as those who pursue jihad) "intolerant", "bigots" or "racists".



Defining an Islam without constraints, from the ICV website:

1) Islam means submission;

2) "submission" is to surrender oneself to god's commands (which are found in the Koran and hadith);

3) Islam requires "the performance of every act" called for (by god and found in the Koran and hadith);

4) A person who does the acts called for by god (found in the Koran and hadith) is not an Islamist, but a Muslim;

5) To simply believe in the Koran and hadith and not do the acts called for in the Koran and hadith is "incomprehensible" (that is, it makes no sense to claim to be Muslim if one does not do the acts called for by god);

6) Those who do not care for Islam, or are "faithless" and "despise...believers...for being Muslim" are considered with contempt;

7) Practicing Islam (meaning doing the acts called for in the Koran and hadith) is not a form of extremism;

8) Those who proclaim themselves Muslim, but do not do the acts called for in the Koran and hadith deceive themselves by calling themselves Muslim. Such persons are not Muslim, but posing as Muslims;

9) The commands and values of the Koran and hadith are eternal. Only "bias" prevents some from accepting this to be "truth";

10) God has given humanity divine decrees to follow and act on which are unrelated to subjective "man-made" decrees based on human values which are "limited" and "short-sighted";

11) Actions done as required by the Koran and hadith define Sharia;

12) Faithful Muslims do the acts (practices) that are "in line with the divine commandments": the Koran and hadith;

13) "Islam does not approve ... of enforced faith". The hadith explain that we are all born Muslim and remain Muslim until we are "compelled" to become Jews or Christians when those faiths are "enforced" (imposed by another party by force). "Compulsion" includes acts such as baptism;

14) The Koran forbids "oppression in faith", meaning any law that limits or prevents Muslims observing and acting on any of the commands of the Koran (and hadith) constitutes an "oppression";

15) Islam exists to impose belief by force, "Islam exists to prevent all kinds of hypocrisy and disbelief";

16) Mohammad is the "final" prophet. His commands are in the Koran, and his example, which is to be followed, is in the hadith. All previous faiths are a corruption Mohammad came to correct .


koran is the source of sharia Sharia is to do what is commanded in Koran - kill, behead, murder
"The Koran is one of the main sources of Sharia", from the Australian government braodcaster (ABC).

The Koran calls for beheadings, continuous jihad, violence against women and intolerance.

The Koran is misanthropic and misogynistic.

The Islamic Council of Victoria promotes doing what is called for in the Koran.


Guidance from the hadith - that which defines "good" for Muslims according to the ICV
the hadith wage continuous jihad until everyone is muslim

"Good Guidance" from the hadith:

Hadith: “The messenger of Allah said : ‘I have been ordered to fight against people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammed is the messenger of Allah and until they perform the prayers and pay the zakat,… in accordance with Islam…” Hadith, An Nawawi Hadith Number 008 : Narrated By Abdullah bin Omar

Hadith: “…jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist).” Hadith, Abu Dawud Book 008, Hadith Number 2526

Hadith: “Striving in the path of Allah (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler, whether he is pious or impious; the prayer is obligatory on you behind every believer, pious or impious, even if he commits grave sins.” Hadith, Abu Dawud Book 008, Hadith Number 2527

Hadith: “The Prophet said, ‘Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah (in the Hereafter) would wish to come back to this world …, except the martyr who, on seeing the superiority of martyrdom, would like to come back to the world and get killed again (in Allah's cause).’” Hadith, Sahih Bukhari Volume 004, Book 052, Hadith Number 053

Hadith: “The Prophet said, ‘The person who participates in (Holy battles) in Allah's cause ... will be recompensed by Allah either with a reward, or booty (if he survives) or will be admitted to Paradise (if he is killed in the battle as a martyr)… I would have loved to be martyred in Allah's cause and then made alive, and then martyred and then made alive, and then again martyred in His cause.’” Hadith, Sahih Bukhari Volume 001, Book 002, Hadith Number 035

The consequence of following guidance from the Koran and hadith is that Muslims commit acts of terrorism. As a result, Muslims declare that anti-terrorist laws "unfairly" target them "simply for being Muslim", simply because it is only in Islam, and no other religion, that calls to behead "unbelievers", and for the waging of perpetual war until we are all Muslim, are made:

waleed aly propagandist for terrorist icv
Above, Waleed Aly from the "executive of the Islamic Council of Victoria", and who acts as their propagandist argues that anti-terror laws specifically target Muslims.

muslims practicing what is in koran and hadith perpetrate terrorist acts

Anti-terrorism laws that do not affect Buddhists, Jews, Christians, Zoroastrians, Sikhs, Hindus, or even Scientologists, affect only Muslims. The Islamic Council of Victoria have been objecting to anti-terrorism laws for over a decade.

The ICV openly acknowledges that by practicing what is called for in the Koran and hadith Muslims can be arrested as terrorists.

The ICV therefore objects to laws that will in effect limit Muslim religious observation

The ICV dispute the "spurious notion of religious extremism". Obviously practicing Islam is not extremist, it is piety.

The ICV already describes the acts called for in the Koran and hadith as necessary and that following them makes one "Muslim", not an "extremist" or "Islamist"

The ICV raise the issue of "Israel" whose existence is claimed to cause "extremism".

Israel is assailed by Hamas and Islamic Jihad whose actions are defined by and called for by the Koran and hadith. It is the duty of all Muslims to "fight the Jews" and commit their genocide. And, the stance of the ICV is not inconsistent with this aim which the ICV objects to being defined as "terrorist" because, as it is ordered in the Koran and hadith, it is "good".

The Islamic Council of Victoria promote doing the acts demanded in the Koran and hadith, and proclaim that by doing these acts makes one a Muslim not Islamist; a Muslim, not an extremist.

The Islamic State (ISIS, ISIL, IS) call for and do the very acts demanded by the Koran and hadith which the ICV proclaim makes one a Muslim.

However, the doing of the acts demanded in the Koran and hadith is denounced by non-Muslims on the basis of "human values", and such acts are denounced as acts of terrorism. The ICV proclaims that those who judge the divine and eternal orders of the Koran and hadith are "limited", "short-sighted" and biased as a result. The Islamic Council of Victoria objects to anti-terrorism laws because such laws limit Muslim's unrestricted rights to do what is demanded in doctrine and to inhibit Muslims from doing such acts demonstrates a lack of "respect", which they demand they have a right to.


It is incontrovertible that the war against Jews in the Levant is one that is unilaterally declared and waged by Muslims in which Jews are victims. Muslim doctrine declares that al Shām, "Palestine", is given to Muslims.


hadith claims palestine awarded to muslims - muslims will wage war against jews until they are eliminated
Islamic doctrine (the hadith) proclaims "Palestine" (al Shām) as having been given by god to Muslims (Abu Dawud Book 008, Hadith Number 2477) - hence the war in "Palestine" is a war that has been UNILATERALLY declared, and waged by Islam against Jews.

secular muse painting - criticism is made of the KOranic passages that call for war because god syas waging war is good and the means by which god selects those who go to heaven (paradise)
attempting the destruction of the secular muse

Criticism is made of the Koranic passages that call for war because god says waging war is good and the means by which god can select those who will go to heaven. According to the ICV, these passages must be acted on, and any who criticises such passages are "the most detested".

Below, an ISIS Muslim waging war that intends to regain al Shām ("Palestine"), and beheading "unbelievers" in the process; that is, he is doing acts demanded in the Koran. According to the ICV believing without doing the acts is "incomprehensible", and doing the acts does not make him an "extremist" or "Islamist".

pious muslim displaying victims he has beheaded after following orders in the Koran

The Koranic passage that is being followed to commit the beheadings:

“When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield strike off their heads…Had Allah willed, He could Himself have punished them; but He has ordained it thus that He might test you...” KORAN, 47.4 (Dawood translation)

In 2012 the same ISIS Muslim supported his brother who was arrested while rioting in Sydney. Muslims at that protest held placards urging the beheading of critics of Islam. The ICV call critics of Islam the most detested.

The ICV refuses to repudiate these passages of the Koran or hadith.

Above, article from the UK Daily Mail,

The idea that an objection can be made to an atheist criticising Islam (even though other religions are criticised) on the grounds that it is claimed that criticism of Islam could mean that Jews can no longer be blamed for conflict in Palestine exposes those CONTENT REMOVED.

A belief is not the equivalent to a logical corollary. And, a logical corollary is not "an opinion". Australia's judiciary conflate these concepts and deem them to be of the same meaning.
