A Labor senator who fled Iran as a boy has described the end of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan as something that is ‘as Aussie as it gets’.

Sam Dastyari made the comments on the steps of Lakemba Mosque in western Sydney‘s Islamic heartland to commemorate the Eid festival in front of hundreds of Muslims.

‘Eid Mubarak. How Aussie is this?’ he said to cheers in the presence of New South Wales Liberal Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

‘The steps of Lakemba Mosque on a Sunday morning. As Aussie as it gets.

  1. 50.000
    Fifty Thousand

    According to the ….. Daily Mail ….. isn’t this a BRITISH Main Stream Media Outlet ?
    But also the Daily Telegraph – yet another BRITISH Main Stream Media Outlet – ?

    In N.S.W. Australia – 50.000 people of the Muslim faith gathered to celebrate the end of Ramadan – indeed they closed off Lakemba Street.

    If I – as a Roman Catholic – & 49 other Roman Catholics wanted to kneel down & pray in the middle of the road – for 15 minutes in Lakemba Street – or Collins Street Melbourne. Victoria. Australia.

    WE WOULD HAVE TO APPLY FOR A PERMIT TO GATHER.

    AND HOPE THAT IT WAS GRANTED.

    IT IS NOT EASY TO BE GRANTED A PERMIT TO GATHER AT THE BEST OF TIMES

    AT A MOMENTS NOTICE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE

    AND IT IS ILLEGAL TO GATHER WITHOUT A PERMIT.

    POLICE WOULD HAVE TO BE PRESENT.
    HOW MANY POLICE WOULD HAVE TO BE ALLOCATED TO WATCH OVER A GATHERING OF 50.000 MUSLIM WORSHIPERS – I HAVE NO IDEA – BUT IT WOULD CERTAINLY CHALLENGE THE NSW POLICE FORCE – AND COST THE AUSTRALIAN TAX PAYER A PACKET.

    THIS WAS A PUBLICITY STUNT – and I most certainly hope that who so ever orchestrated this shindig – BLOODY WELL PAID FOR IT OUT OF THEIR OWN POCKET.

    If it was Sam Dastyari & his MOB – I hope they stick you with a big bill.

    I & I am sure that I speak for all Australians here – am sick to the back teeth of the wasteful way that the Hard Earned Australian Tax Payer Dollars are thrown about as if they fell from heaven.

  2. Obviously ‘they’ are courting the Muslim vote.

    “The Racist boogie-men are out there & we know who they are”
    “But we can defeat them”
    “Love is all we need”
    “Oh, look, I am for you, so vote for me – please”

    THEY ARE PAYING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO SPIN DOCTORS TO GIVE THEM STRATEGIES TO WIN OVER THE MUSLIM VOTE.

    This particular strategy will not work.
    Of the 50.000 Muslims who were at Lakemba Street – many worship at their own Mosques – people have their own family & social network & religious leaders & places where the prefer to worship – a lot of people were put out to make this promotional news event for the inept politicians – with shonky spin advice – all paid for by the tax payer dollar.
    Money falls from heaven above for them.

    We don’t want them – that’s for sure.
    Cory Bernadine has his own party.
    Lee Rhiannon has taken a step away from her ‘compliant’ party & may stand alone.
    The Greens can’t be relied upon to deliver the goods to the Turnbull agenda.
    Labor is lost in the woods & may never be found again.
    Who is left ?
    No one ………….. it is a sad day indeed when all you have to vote for on election day is A Rock & A Hard Place.
