It appears the Mosque will be built at this address after the High Court of Australia threw out an appeal by the Concerned Citizens group last year: 9 Rowena St, East Bendigo VIC 3550
The Bendigo Bank fiasco all started when a group of Bendigo citizens heard about plans to build a huge new mosque in their city. Knowing that a mosque would bring untold trouble, as they had seen happen in other places where mosques were built, they decided to get together and work out ways to oppose the development application.
They formed the Concerned Citizens of Bendigo group and opened a bank account to deposit donations they planned to raise from other concerned citizens.
But they soon found out that the Bendigo Bank is in bed with the Muslims. As opposition to the mosque grew the bank took it upon themselves to censor the protestors. The bank closed the Concerned Citizens account, stating that it did not meet the “Bank’s Community Standards”. This certainly raised a few eyebrows, because the Bendigo Bank markets itself as a Community Bank!
When news of the account closure got out over Facebook it created a huge backlash against the bank. To date, depositors have closed their accounts to the tune of at least $60 million, and many investors have divested themselves of their stock in the bank. The drain has not ended yet. In fact, it is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.
Meanwhile, the bank has stood firm on its decision, claiming the moral high ground. What a shame they can’t understand that We the People can see right through the sham.
In an effort to counter the bad publicity that its actions caused the Bank put up a statement on its Facebook Page:
“In response to recent questions and commentary regarding our decision to close an account. This was a considered decision by our Bank, and we respect everyone’s right to voice their opinions. Equally we have a right to ours, and we want to do business with organisations whose values align with our own. Our Bank values tolerance and inclusiveness, qualities which are an important part of a strong community. This is the only comment we will be making here on this matter. ^Jeanette”
This only served to upset even more people. They flocked to the Stop the Bendigo Mosque Facebook page to voice their displeasure. They also vented their anger on the Bendigo Bank page where some of the comments were, shall we say, less than pleasant.
The account closure prompted the members of the Concerned Citizens group to start digging into the reasons behind it. Working to the old maxim, “follow the money” they soon started to yield results.
While they were digging into the Bendigo Bank’s motives the Concerned Citizens group was not giving up. They approached National Australia Bank (NAB), only to find that the bank declined to open a bank account for them. Not surprising really, as the group quickly learned that NAB is a major shareholder in the Bendigo Bank through its wholly owned subsidiary National Nominees.
So Concerned Citizens went to the Commonwealth Bank. To their surprise they found that the CBA also refused to open an account for them as did Bank Macquarie, and Westpac —all claiming a values clash.
Finally their accountant offered Concerned Citizens the use of one of his accounts at the Macquarie Bank. But their joy was short lived. They quickly found that this account was closed as well and the accountant also lost his standing with that bank as a result. Their first inkling came when they tried to log into the online banking facility only to find that there was no account to log into. When their accountant asked the bank what had happened they told him they had closed the account. However, they did promise that they would mail him the cheque for the missing money.
A supporter has revealed that the Macquarie is handling the sale of the Rural Finance Corporation for the State of Victoria, and that the Bendigo Bank is the only buyer in a no tender no public offering tender sale.
The supporter also found that J.P Morgan had advised the Victorian Government not to go to tender. Strange indeed, until it was found that J.P Morgan is also a shareholder in the Bendigo Bank!
The Bendigo Bank started the ball rolling that has sparked a chain-reaction throughout the banking system. Now, all the banks have closed ranks to protect themselves against We the People, not understanding that we have the power to stop them dead in their tracks and uncover every bit of dirt on them there is. They have prodded the tiger and now we are baring our teeth.
Not surprisingly, the Politicians will only side with the perceived winners, and to date that has been the Banks. However, this is likely to change. We the People are uniting as the murky facts in this distasteful drama are pealed back, layer by stinking layer.
Mike Hirst, the Bendigo Bank’s CEO, tried to explain to Kent Baylay of the Gold Coast Sentinel in an “off the record” interview that was later uploaded to the internet that the bank made a morally based decision against a group they considered a bunch of racists.
Mike Hirst didn’t let the facts get in the way of his attempted whitewash. Like just about everything that come out of his mouth he appeared less than truthful, to use the words of Dr. Alexander Douglas MP.
Dr. Douglas deserves the title The Honourable Member for Gaven in Queensland for his revelations on the Alan Jones radio show exposing the extent of the corruption within the banking and political systems of Australia.
As a result of his revelations the true facts are emerging and we are connecting the dots. The Bendigo Bank has been lying through its collective teeth…and then some.
It transpires that the property that surrounds the intended site of the Mosque in Bendigo is actually owned by a company controlled by an ex-Director of the Bendigo Bank and Chairman of Bendigo Telco. Mr. Don Erskine with his son Mark are involved in the Brickworks development.
At first glance, it looks like closing the Concerned Citizens account was just a favour done by Mike Hirst and the Board of Directors of the Bendigo Bank for an old friend. Obviously, they wanted to silence any opposition. After all, what is the small matter of closing a customer’s bank account when weighed against a $4 Million windfall?
Bend Over Bendigo Bank, the dhimmi bank
Next, the Concerned Citizens found out that the Bendigo City Council is about to sit in Chambers to discuss re-zoning all that land to high density residential.
The land owner and his partners stand to make a SUBSTANTIAL capital gain out of that deal. No wonder this mosque application has generated so much controversy.
Once the mosque is built hundreds, if not thousands more Muslims will move into the area. They will want somewhere to live: And where better than right next door to the mosque?
Perhaps this explains why the mosque application proposes such a LARGE facility. It’s not just for the few dozen Muslims living in Bendigo today. They are planning on building up a substantial Islamic presence there.
What does this mean for the local residents?
Well, as we have already seen, if your business or group dares go against the plans of this mob you will be targeted, just as the Concerned Citizens Group were, and told to take your business elsewhere. Of course, they will make sure that it is just as impossible to open a new business or bank account, as the Concerned Citizens Group has. Since being rejected by the Bendigo Bank they have been unable to open a new account at any bank in Bendigo!
The consequences, if the mosque is approved, will be catastrophic for any Australian businesses currently operating in the area. They will soon find that they are targeted by the Muslims in a concerted effort to move them out so that Muslims can move in. This will happen in a number of ways. Businesses will be broken into, people will be attacked, rubbish will be dumped outside their doors, windows broken, cars parked to block access.
If you think this is an over-reaction you only have to look at what has happened in other western countries. This is a standard practice wherever a mosque is built. Residents are forced to move and if they refuse their lives are made such hell that in the end they are happy to move even if they lose money selling their property. In some cases, people are killed.
As more Muslims move into the area traffic problems will increase. Crime will become rampant…Muslims are not exactly always law abiding citizens. They put their Islamic sharia law before any western laws. Their loyalty is not to the country they live in but to Islam and sharia law.
Noise pollution will become a burden on all residents. The call to prayer will be blasted out of loudspeakers from the mosque from early morning to late in the evening.
But all this is in the future.
The biggest worry for Bendigo residents today is the impending City Council meeting to approve the application to re-zone that all important land around the proposed mosque. If this happens then there will be no stopping the mosque or the subsequent destruction of the peace and tranquillity of Bendigo.
Is this what Bendigo residents want?
We are calling on all concerned citizens to attend that City Council meeting and make sure that their objections are heard, loudly. (All objectors will be notified or inboxed through the Stop the Mosque Facebook page to attend.)
Isis bomb plots thwarted in Sydney; still the Liberals, Greens and ALP allow 1000 ‘refugees’ a day to enter
Liberals, Greens and Labor do the bidding of the United Nations
Sydney is no stranger to terrorism, but when police bashed down the door of a Surry Hills terrace last Saturday night, there was something different in the air.
The Cleveland Street home, raided as part of an anti-terror operation, is in one of the city’s most sought-after locales — a place where inner-city trendies sashay from bar to bar.
For an operation like this to happen in a suburb adjacent to the Harbour City’s sparkling CBD, is unnerving.
But it was here, and at four other locations around Sydney, police claim to have cut down one of the most sophisticated terrorist blueprints ever attempted on Australian soil
Authorities will allege they stopped two plans: the first to blow up a passenger plane with an improvised explosive device (IED) hidden in luggage, and another to unleash a potentially deadly gas bomb.
The weekend’s raids and arrests have prompted dramatic police claims, including IS sending bomb-making equipment Down Under, and a man’s plan to secret an IED inside his brother’s luggage which made it all the way into the nation’s busiest airport.
Let’s go back to April
Police claim Khaled Khayat, who was charged with terrorism-related offences, was put in touch with an IS controller by his brother — a senior member of the terrorist group in Syria.
Sometime between April 13 and mid-July, police claim an IS operative in Turkey sent a “high-military grade explosive” to Australia, which Khaled Khayat or his co-accused Mahmoud Khayat used to create an IED.
Police will allege that by July 15, the IED was built and on its way to Kingsford Smith Airport, bound for an Etihad passenger flight to the Middle East.
Authorities claim the explosives were hidden inside a meat grinder that Khaled Khayat had placed in the luggage of his brother, who was unaware he had been made a mule.
Police allege it was Khaled Khayat’s intention for the IED to be taken onto the plane, but that it did not get past baggage check-in, and Khaled Khayat removed it from the airport and dismantled it.
The brother left Australia on the flight and remains overseas.
What do police believe happened next?
After the alleged first plot was aborted, police claim the group turned its attention to creating a toxic hydrogen sulphide bomb, after a directive from an IS controller.
Police will allege discussions were had about how to create the device, including the amount of chemicals to be used.
Preliminary discussions were allegedly had about where and when to use it, with closed crowde
d spaces such as those typical on public transport mentioned.
However, authorities also say no concrete plans were made and the device was not close to being functional.
Hydrogen sulphide, or “rotten egg gas”, is a pungent and deadly chemical compound.
Lakemba features again
On July 26, UK and US intelligence agencies tipped off their counterparts in Australia about the alleged plot, and subsequently, the New South Wales Joint Counter-Terrorism Team (JCTT) was alerted.
Police said they placed suspects under surveillance.
Around that time, authorities said they built a mock IED and tested whether it could get through airport security. It didn’t.
By Friday, July 28 the JCCT, which is made up of officers from the Australian Federal Police and NSW Police, was ready to go ahead with the raids, and the following evening, July 29, they pounced.
Four men were arrested as part of the operation, and five properties in Surry Hills, Lakemba, Punchbowl and Wiley Park were searched.
Police will allege they found components of the chemical dispersion device and precursor chemicals during the execution of search warrants.
On Sunday, a magistrate granted police extra time to charge the men using special terrorism powers.
They were given seven days to charge the four men, but on Tuesday, a 50-year-old man was released.
On Thursday evening, Khaled Khayat, 49, and Mahmoud Khayat, 32, were each charged with two counts of acts done in preparations for, or planning, a terrorist act.
They did not appear at Parramatta Local Court, where bail was not applied for and was formally refused.
Outside court, their lawyer Michael Coroneos said: “My clients are entitled to the presumption of innocence.”
Manus Island violence, sexual assault and regular bashings of staff by inmates
by Alanah Robinson, whose husband worked at the centre
My previous Facebook post has been taken down. I find it interesting that it has seemingly breeched FB community standards for attacking someone’s race or ethnicity when not once did I do that. Apparently, it’s not OK to criticise violent behaviour. I would like to point out that I immigrated here from a Muslim majority country, I’m not white and spent many years in PNG.
Due to the recent spike in publicity surrounding the Manus Regional Processing Centre, I feel that I must speak up. First of all, whether or not I think that the men in the centre are refugees, asylum seekers, illegal immigrants or little green men from Mars is irrelevant to what I am about to share:
For some time my husband worked at the centre. He, his former work colleagues, local staff, female and male were subjected to violent assaults and even assaults of a sexual nature on a daily basis; with my husband having been assaulted DOZENS of times.
The staff there were spat at, some being knocked unconscious and beaten whilst incapacitated, another was struck from behind with a metal bar (being partially scalped from the attack), chairs, rocks and poles were all used as weapons against the staff which, included females. There was even a recent incident of a female doctor surviving a strangulation attempt; these are just some of the hundreds of examples…..
There have also been numerous incidents involving the local populace, including children that have had physical attempts of a sexual nature made against them, by men staying in the centre. Despite what some elements within the media and politics would have you believe, they were able to leave and access places outside the centre, including beaches, villages and towns. Further to this almost one thousand of these men have elected to return home to their country of origin. Some of those who chose to remain on the island had to be escorted when leaving the centre as they had been identified as being high risk repeat sexual offenders… LET THAT SINK IN FOR A MINUTE…. This group of men have been caught using lollies and chocolates in an attempt to lure young children into their accommodation, for purposes I would shudder to imagine, with one of these men being recently charged for the sexual assault of a ten year old child.
The men at this centre have been coached by advocates in Australia on how to cultivate an image of who they are, and of their conditions that would best serve their political aims in Australia and abroad. They have for years now deliberately provoked the local population, routinely making threats, throwing rocks and defaming the local culture, race and the PNG nation itself. This type of deliberate and concerted behaviour has naturally elicited a reaction from the people of Manus Island and has helped to achieve the (false) narrative that Manus Island was an unsafe place to live.
My heart is breaking for the Manus Island people, as it is for every staff member, many of whom are Australian and New Zealand citizens that have had to endure sustained verbal and physical abuse.
After hearing so many first-hand accounts, I am grateful for the mental and moral resilience of the men and women who have been tasked with the difficult job of maintaining order within the centre, and hope that they have not suffered in their mental health at having to witness such depravity by these perpetrators.
Knowing now what I do, I could hardly care less about the “plight” of these rapefugees, where they have come from, their culture or religion – my thoughts are only for the people of Manus Island and Australia.
I find it interesting that here in Australia many women leading the protests – determined to put pressure on the government to bring these low life’s here…..why is that? Why are these particular women making excuses for the violence against fellow citizens and ignoring the sexual assault of CHILDREN?!
The men there, in collusion with advocates from Australia, created a Facebook page (thankfully now removed) dedicated to finding out and posting the addresses of staff members’ family homes here in Australia (after viewing this page I was deeply disturbed by its content and its implications). The page contained images, locations and was threatening in nature. With this in mind the expatriate and local population in addition to the staff, all had threats made against their families (wives, girlfriends, parents and children) of a graphic, sexual nature…
So if you are a person who has a good heart and has been deceived into having sympathy for these young men and seek to bring them to Australia, I implore you to make decisions based not on emotion but on the raw tactile situation and make these decisions with your head. We are lucky to live in a safe country – lets keep it that way!
There is deep seated misogyny, violence and an often paedophilic nature that permeates their culture which is at odds with our values, that which we try to uphold, as Australians. We cannot hold them to a standard which they themselves have no desire to be a part of. We are also lucky to live in a country that allows for different ideas and opinions, but in the name of self-preservation, for the sake of ALL our families and children; if you are seeking to import these men, then your right to an opinion is directly endangering the public (particularly the families – myself included) should your ideals be reached.

When a white Londoner ran over 11 Muslims in front of a London mosque the UK ruling elite called it a heinous act.
Leading the charge, Prime Minister Theresa May expressed outrage, describing the deliberate injury of the Muslim worshippers by running over them with a van as an “evil act borne out of hatred.”
“We want extremism and hatred driven out of society,” Theresa May told reporters.
What strange people the elite, including the Islamic Mayor, turn out to be when the boot is on the other foot. Here we have a fed-up, 47 year old ordinary British man not known to authorities, who simply had seen enough carnage inflicted on normal people at the hands of Muslim extremists.
After running over the worshippers, he shouted: “I want to kill all Muslims.” He took the problem into his own hands, targeting Muslims at the Finsbury Park mosque.
Islamists have carried out numerous attacks and mass killings of people across Europe particularly at London Bridge on June 4, where seven people , including two Australian women were killed after being mowed down by a van driven by a mad Islamic.
Police shot dead three of the madmen in the aftermath of the slaughter.
Any casual observer could be forgiven for saying: “Tough luck Mussies, you are wearing a revenge attack and you can probably expect more of the same.”
“You think it is OK to mass murder Christians in Syria or elsewhere around the world by cutting off their heads, burning them alive or by slow drowning, so call it an eye for an eye, albeit minus the Islamic savagery.”
“Is it OK to kill hundreds of people in Paris without considering there could be retaliation?”
It does not bode well for Australia with its own horde of Muslim immigrants, many with military experience. The extent to which Islam has overtaken the UK is listed below.
List of Mayors in UK that are Muslim with 3,000 Muslim Mosques, 130 Sharia Courts
Now the British have passively succumbed to the Muslim invasion:
Mayor of London … MUSLIM
Mayor of Birmingham … MUSLIM
Mayor of Leeds … MUSLIM
Mayor of Blackburn … MUSLIM
Mayor of Sheffield … MUSLIM
Mayor of Oxford … MUSLIM
Mayor of Luton … MUSLIM
Mayor of Oldham … MUSLIM
Mayor of Rochdale … MUSLIM
Over 3,000 Muslim Mosques
Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts
Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils
Muslims-Only No-Go Areas Across The UK
Muslim Women … 78% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
Muslim Men … 63% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
Muslim Families … 6-8 children planning to go on FREE benefits/housing
… and now all UK schools are ONLY serving HALAL MEAT!
All this achieved by just 4 million or 2.6 per cent of Muslims out of the 66 million population!
Recent comments from the Coroner exposed gaping flaws in police capability
by Gil Hanrahan in Sydney
Any ten year old kid who has fired a .177 Daisy air rifle would know that low velocity lead pellets do not fragment nor in most instances, ricochet.
Police at the Lindt Café siege in 2014 should have possessed the same knowledge. Supposedly trained SWAT policemen too should have known this basic ballistic tenet.
More revelations about the police blunders were aired during the recent Coroners report into the deaths of Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson.
One unit threw flash grenades about the foyer before entering the café, thus blinding and deafening themselves before getting into the café.
The shooter at Port Arthur obviously was not in the same situation. He wore ear plugs or he would have had concussion from the firearm muzzle energy and excruciating noise of repeated firing in a confined space.
The police blundered into the cafe, one on top of the other falling about in the dark, waving around and blazing their H & K .223 high velocity assault rifles at an indistinguishable target.
Travelling at 3300 feet per second these 55 grain projectiles are lethal if they directly hit a target or if a bullet hits a hard wall and ricochets or fragments.
The officer who actually hit the gunman fired 17 rounds in three seconds clearly demonstrating he had not been trained to shoot in a confined space, tactical response situation.
Another officer was actually wounded by shrapnel from either his own or his partner’s firearm.
The young barrister, Katrina Dawson, did not have a chance. Of course bullet fragments had to go somewhere and they did, killing an innocent young mother with shrapnel.
Commissioner Scipione was not about to allow the highly trained army anti- terrorist unit that was on standby, poised and ready to move from Holdsworthy Army Base, to take out the terrorist. This would look bad for the cops.
This error of judgement by a Police Commissioner who went home to bed for the night while 10 highly distressed innocent café patrons and eight staff cowered under the mad terrorist’s shotgun, left command of the siege to the totally hopeless and inept Assistant Commissioner Catherine Burns.
For this the families of the two murdered hostages and NSW should be thankful. Commissioner Andrew Scipione has retired will not again be at the helm of another disaster, and nor should his Commander Jenkins.
Café manager Tori Johnson died needlessly at the muzzle of mad Man Monis’ 12 gauge shotgun.
The army anti-terrorist unit would have stormed the café within an hour of assessing the siege situation. Tori and Katrina would not have died.
Only two officers were needed to enter the café through each door. Armed with HK MP5 assault rifles chambered in 9mm calibre, these lower velocity, copper jacketed lead projectiles travelling at 1300 fps do not fragment, rarely ricochet and are effective at close range.
The snipers had a chance to take out Man Monis on several occasions by firing through a plate glass window.
Who knows what firearms the snipers had that night. They should have been armed with a minimum .30 calibre sniper rifle such as a 7mm Remington Magnum or a .300 Winchester Magnum, highly effective sniper rifles at any distance.
If they had been properly trained they would have used 150 grain armour piercing, boat tailed projectiles that could have punched a hole through plate glass or even medium armoured glass at the close range they were offered.
There would have been little collateral damage.
Instead no sniper fired a shot. The mad Islamic terrorist might have had a bomb in his back pack but If they had shot him in the head at 50 metres through the glass, the bomb factor would have been irrelevant.
The police protect their own and for the new Commissioner, Mick Fuller, interviewed on Four Corners, it was obviously extremely hard for him make his best admission, “we could have gone in earlier.”
Well Commissioner, where was your apology to the Dawson and Johnson families?
The people of Inner Sydney can be thankful there was not more than one terrorist.
The Federal Government will soon finalise the complete and ultimate facial recognition records for all Australian citizens.
And Pauline Hanson wants a national ID Card?
A national data base of passport, driver, gun owner and high risk equipment operator licence photos will be kept for access by just whom remains unknown.
Federal and State police, immigration officers and Border Force will have access, but it seems more clandestine bodies will get their hands on your complete identity.
ASIO, ASIS and reciprocal overseas spy agencies will also have access to all of your personal data.
It should be noted that Australia has arrangements with some rather dubious nations for exchanging the personal information of all our citizens.
CCTV footage as depicted in US television shows such as NCIS Los Angeles will end up in captured data as supposedly trained facial recognition experts scan your face while you browse the shopping mall, fuel your car at the service station or sit on a park bench.
Queensland Traffic Police and their contractors have had this technology for three years, photographing you in your car every time you pass a highway patrol vehicle or stationary camera car, storing your image and that of passengers, vehicle description, direction, time and date of travel.
The police cars have infa-red ability and can photograph the driver and all passengers in the car as you pass. By then your number plate will have been read by the on-board computer and sent online to the huge data bank in Roma Street Police HQ and another massive data bank held by the Main Roads Department.
Soon after the facial images of the car occupants will be sent to the national Face Identification Service.
Nearly 80 per cent of people over 16 hold a drivers licence and 55 per cent have a passport. More than 600,000 citizens have a photographic gun licence in Queensland.
Justice Minister Michael Keenan told News Corp that passport photos would be accessed in the coming months and drivers licences would be tapped into after ongoing discussions with the states were finalised.
The Face Identification Service will match a photo of an unknown person against multiple government records to help establish their identity.
“These biometric services will change the face of crime fighting in Australia,” Mr Keenan, a Liberal, said.
The final piece of the identity jigsaw is about to come into place. Tasmania MP Andrew Wilkie has warned Australia will become the police state, test case for the final solution.
The advice of Sydney security expert Mike Petersen: Do not vote at any election. If everybody does this the government will fail and the people can lawfully take control, elect their own representatives and return to Constitutional rule.
A Swiss secondary school has caused uproar by allowing two Muslim boys not to shake hands with women teachers – a common greeting in Swiss schools.
The boys had told the school in the small, northern town of Therwil it was against their faith to touch a woman outside their family.
Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga said shaking hands was part of Swiss culture and daily life.
A local teachers’ union said the exemption discriminated against women.
The case has propelled Therwil, a town of 10,000 people in the Basel-Country canton, to the centre of a national debate about Swiss identity. A similar case has been reported elsewhere in the region.
Christian Amsler, head of the Swiss Conference of Cantonal Ministers of Education, suggested that the school may have tried to get an “unpleasant problem out of the way” but had simply made a mistake.
There has been little support for the school’s decision to grant special dispensation to the boys, who are 14 and 15 and have lived in Switzerland for several years.
Therwil Mayor Reto Wolf said the community was unhappy with the decision taken by the school, which is run by the local canton.
“In our culture and in our way of communication a handshake is normal and sends out respect for the other person, and this has to be brought [home] to the children in school,” he told the BBC.
Felix Mueri, the head of the Swiss parliament’s education commission and a member of the anti-immigration Swiss People’s Party, said the decision sent out the wrong message. “Today’s it’s the handshake and what will it be tomorrow?”
Muslim groups also disagreed with the school’s response.
There was no reference in the Koran justifying a refusal to shake a woman teacher’s hand, said the Swiss Federation of Islamic Organisations. Saida Keller-Messahli of the Forum for Progressive Islam urged the Swiss not to give in to extremist demands.
However the smaller Islamic Central Council of Switzerland said that a handshake between men and women was prohibited. “After the sex attacks in Cologne (on New Year’s Eve), they asked Muslims to keep their distance from women; now they demand they get closer to them,” spokesman Qaasim Illi told Swiss media.
The justice minister said such dispensation for children was not her idea of integration.
The beleaguered school has tried to find a compromise, by deciding that the two pupils should not greet either men or women with a handshake.
Headteacher Juerg Lauener said the school had no reason to adjust its policy, unless the local authorities ruled against its decision.
Local education officials said the school had taken a pragmatic approach, but agreed it was not a permanent solution as rules should be the same for all pupils.
