DO you ever get that feeling we've seen it all before, the way things play out after every latest bombing, head-lopping and thwarted plan to blow up the MCG* or Holsworthy? Well don't worry, you aren't going mad because you really HAVE seen it before.
In 2010, Mohamad Abdalla of the Griffith Islamic Research Unit wrote at length for the ABC of the visiting Ayaan Hirsi's false witness against Islam.
Three years later and this time it is Paul Sheahan who has erred by making note of the blindingly obvious. Quick to counter, Abdalla reached into the Soul-Glo beard that inspired such admiration at its recent appearance on Q&A, plucked out a copy of that earlier sermon, did a Hirsi=Sheahan find-and-replace, added a bit about Anders Breivik and lopped off whatever was left over.
Then Abdalla sent it off to the Silly, where it was published without delay.
The long-standing sympathy of the Greens for Islam has long been a bit of a mystery, the best explanation to date being that it is to be expected the party of Sarah Hansen-Young and Mrs O'Gorman would enjoy a natural affinity with followers of a fellow who heard voices and owned a flying horse. But no, it seems recycling is their common cause.
* It is understood a "Goodes Amendment" is being prepared in Victoria's parliament to make the crime of blowing up the MCG a genuinely serious one. If the bombers are heard to cry "Sons of apes, death awaits you!" normal penalties will be doubled and a no-parole period of at least three years imposed.
