RADICAL ISLAM VS RADICAL MAORIDOM - SHOULD WE BE WORRIED?

I have argued vehemently on this blog the danger of labeling all Muslims as radical extremists just as it would be equally wrong to 'tar' Maori with the same brush.   Argue the numbers if you will but I would suspect 90% of both cultures respect societal norms and are striving for a better life for themselves and their families.   Like all sections of society some may need help and assistance along the way.   I don't begrudge them that.

That leaves the 10% +/- who have a perverted vision of New Zealand.   For Islamic radicals that vision might include a society where Sharia Law rules supreme.   For Maori radicals complete self-government is the gold standard with non-Maori afforded visitor status in those areas under Maori control.    For confirmation of this you need to look no further than Ngati Kahu, the mob of useless nobodies led by self styled Maori 'Champagne Radical' Margaret Mutu. who occupied Kaitaia airport recently in support of a Treaty Claim that's going no-where against a stated 'all or nothing' approach by Mutu.

Can I suggest to you that there is a certain common ground between radical Maoridom prepared to flout the law and radical Islam committed to change by force.    Should cross-over happen between these two communities we should be worried ... very worried indeed.

There is a cross over already. Islam is being embraced by Maori in jail. Imagine that - a violent ideology and violent young men together. Its going to end swimmingly. Islam and the Maori tribe, iwi and whanau system have much in common. Loyalties are not in line with western thinking of a common national good being a noble goal because the concept of "national" is foreign.

Umm no. they are embracing the trappings of the Muslim religion for the same reason they wear their silly looking hats backward . It's US rapper cool to suddenly convert to Islam.

Soon as they are out of gaol they talk the talk but don't walk the walk and they are back on the piss and the P within days. There is no original thought process going on there.

Whether they embrace it fully is not going to be the issue. It will be cool to be part of a warrior group and that, when combined with the lack of original thought, will be where the danger lies. I think many of the ISIL followers are wierdos who just like the idea of killing people and its wonderful to have a religion that makes it possible.
