  1. Brunei with a 70% muslim population is set to introduce new laws in April 2019 that could see LGBT people whipped or stoned to death for same-sex relations. Homosexuality is punishable by death in many muslim majority countries, including death by stoning in Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Mauritania, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Pakistan, Somalia, Qatar and Nigeria.

  2. Waleed criticism is welcome even encouraged however, criticism without offering feasible solutions does not contribute anything of value… What are your solutions Waleed??

  3. I would like to think that Waleed isn't smuggling in Sharia as the solution to a perceived lose of meaning.

  5. Thousands of members of the minority Yazidis sect from Iraq were forced into sexual slavery by the Islamic jihadists when they surged across the Syrian border in 2014 and seized swathes of territory. Now mass graves reveal the bodies of beheaded women and children who had been slaughtered. Praise Allah

  7. Will people please stop making the assumption that Islam is in any way responsible for terrorism, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, Sharia Law, Child brides, Public Canings, Beheadings and backward primitive societies.

  8. Its is incorrect to suggest that the minister's discretion to decide whether or not to entertain an application is new or radical. It has existed since settlement at least in Australia and before in the British Isles where such a power finds its origins. If ministers did not have discretion to make such decisions they could not be said to be independent. This proposition of course may be challenged on the basis that parliament is sovereign, a very English concept and constitutional doctrine that Australia has adopted in convention at least.

  9. You guys are being taken for a ride by this Islamic apologist.
    Review history, how Islam spread through violence. Have a look at both the experiences of Syria and Lebanon how Islam grows in numbers (not necessarily in conversions) and sets aside the local culture. Islam is a
    hegemonic ideology with aims at world domination. The fact that some
    Muslims don't even know their own book makes them be useful idiots.
    Because once the numbers grow it will be the radicals the ones in
    control and nobody can oppose them because they are following the Quran
    and the example of Mohammed.
    Have a look at the life of Mohammed, not from what the apologists say but from independent sources. If you think Hitler is evil, Mohammed makes Hitler look like a kindergarten child. And Mohammed is the model of a human that Muslims are supposed to follow. My challenge to you is to find a crime that Mohammed did not commit to the ultimate limit.
    Paedophilia, mass murder, decapitations, sex slavery, slave trading,
    etc. all in the name of Allah; which turns out to be more like Satan.
    Nothing similar to what you may think coming from God (belief in God is
    not necessary as long as you have a sense of what is ethical).

  10. Thanks for making this available online. He's very interesting to listen to because he is both intelligent and relatable in the way he presents his arguments. Good on Curtin for attracting high caliber, public figures that are ale to grasp the magnitude of human rights, who are able to simplify issues related to upholding those values in the current political climate.

  11. This was amazing to attend. Thanks for sharing – definately worth watching.Brilliant analogies.
