"4. Also recognizes that, despite intolerance and conflicts that are creating a divide across countries and regions and constitute a growing threat to peaceful relations among nations, all cultures, religions and civilizations share a common set of universal values and can all contribute to the enrichment of humankind;"
Resolution adopted by the General Assembly on 20 December 2006, 61/221. Promotion of interreligious and intercultural dialogue, understanding and cooperation for peace
If indeed "a common set of universal values" actually existed which were the core overriding components of every culture's codex there would be a drift towards a universal culture of peace, there is no drift just public stated aspiration in direct contradiction of reality, as cultures reposition themselves utilising such a paradigm commitment as part of a dissimulation strategy to prevent/deter Other cultures responding to negate - remove the culture from social/political/geographic space so as prevent the cultures continuance of the same behavior.
"Participating in a general debate on "Culture of Peace" at the United Nations on Friday, India again aggressively flagged its concern over Pakistan continuing to be a safe haven for terrorists and terror outfits, and criticised Islamabad for using terrorism as a tool of state policy.
"A culture of peace, not only symbolises peace in the larger context, but in terms of inter-State ties is also a value built on good neighbourliness, mutual respect and non-interference. It is ironic, that our neighbour, Pakistan, well-known for providing safe havens to terrorists and using terrorism as a tool of state policy, has used this platform to yet again covet Indian territory, cloaking its designs in the garb of concern for justice and self-determination," he added."

"Kuhn’s View of Scientific Theories
In his 1962 book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Thomas Kuhn notes that when we think of the archetype of the scientist, the people who come to mind are Newton, Darwin, and Einstein. But science as it is done on a daily basis by working scientists is not at all like what those towering figures did. Newton, Darwin, and Einstein are revolutionary scientists whose work is different in kind from what Kuhn calls “normal science.” Normal science is quite the opposite of revolutionary.
Normal scientists work within what Kuhn calls a paradigm. Paradigms are powerful they give us the definition of our scientific terms, that is they tell us what we need to believe are the basic elements of reality. Paradigms tell us what counts as a legitimate question, what tools we can use to answer those questions and what counts as a legitimate answer. Normal science occurs when someone takes a question deemed meaningful by the paradigm uses the tools prescribed by the paradigm to find an acceptable answer within the paradigm. The solution is then published in a journal whose editors and referees are senior members of the community dependent upon the paradigm, indeed whose most powerful members are senior people who helped establish the paradigm. That publication can get one recognised in the community, it can help you get tenure at your institution and help you keep your job, if you want to feed your children you need to play according to the rules dictated by the paradigm and enforced by the community.
Scientists do not question the paradigm. They teach their students how to act according to it, and challenging it is considered a challenge to rationality itself. Rationality, Kuhn argues, exists only within the paradigm. Because the paradigms tells us what is real and how it works, to question the paradigm is to question the structure of the world itself, according to those within the paradigm that leads to nonsense, to think about the paradigm rather than through the paradigm is not to engage in science but philosophy.
Occasionally, however, anomalies pop-up....."
"Redefining Reality", Professor Steven Gimbel, Professor of Philosophy. Gettysburg College, 2015
The parody of the Western educational institutions 'unasked question' which is in essence all possible questions allowed within the limits of the paradigm itself which only seek to shore up and protect the paradigm walls and the income-resources of those patrolling the paradigms ramparts, sleeping soundly in its keep, against questioning of the assumptions underpinning the validity of the paradigm itself.
It is therefore the 'not to be asked question' which is now 'more important than ever', or as non-New York Times-logic would determine 'as important as it ever was' rather than a fastened 'truth' as determined by the New York Times and the like minded, a 'truth' which is increasingly enforced via classical demonising with vigor within our social/political learning institutions thereby in time becoming reality, the 'truth' despite what we see before us as significant evidence to the contrary. Upon consuming a Christian self-flagellation classical demonising fabricated metaphysic of Western colonialism, neocolonialism, neoliberalism, populism, creates fixated intellectual sea squirt pedants with tenure generating more of the same to present other cultures with a doormat culture intent on being worn down and thrown out with historic trash.
It is demanded of Western citizens to simply 'grow' with Muslim derived systemic terror-genocide in a "confident manner". Politicians and the intellectual elite redefining terror as a generic crime not the inter-cultural war it is and always has been with the usual Other apologists with the best of intentions determining the destruction of their own culture.
"We have to grow with the threat, and we have to do it in a confident manner,” Professor Siracusa said. (Human Security and International Diplomacy)
Costly Damascus fortressing and enclaving continues, built by our own destructive cultural gatekeepers. It is the same logic as locking your children in a cage with a tiger then demanding they 'grow with the threat, and .. do it in a confident manner"
To determine Professor Siracusa is dangerously unhinged is being too kind.

"A study for the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism found that despite claiming to protect Muslims, most of the returned fighters were “novices” in their religion and some did not know how to pray properly.

"A concomitant of the group selection process is an evolutionary-based predisposition to conform to group norms, to make distinctions between ingroups and outgroups, and to enforce compliance to rules and norms, even at the cost to group members (Richerson & Boyd, 2005)"
Higgins, Feldman, and Ruble (1980) noted that mere social category knowledge, acquired from the direct experience, may be adequate for generating prosocial behaviour, and its deployment is probably less effortful than perspective taking or empathising.
It became clear that learning can occur without the wrecked reinforcement, merely from observation (e.g., Bandura,1997)."
The Oxford Handbook of prosocial behaviour, 2015, p13, p15
"Culture, of course, is related to violence in general and not only to structural violence. For example, culture influences the determination of "thresholds" which pressure on a person must overcome in order to move that person from being controllable, or even positive, to being negative (that is, into violence)." The Culture of Violence, Chp 3. On the relationship between violence and culture - Galtung's concept
A basic understanding "mere social category knowledge" is all anyone needs for the socialisation of a culture makes it explicitly clear very early what is required otherwise these Muslims would never have gone to Syria to be mass murderers, rapists. Religions are not only descriptive sources of definitions of piety and spiritually they are also the source of categorisation of the 'true path' and categories of out-groups and how to deal with them. One simply has to look at who was involved in the collection of the data and on the UN panel to know the result would erroneously be 'not religion'.
"Without the ceaseless pulsating heartbeat of our categorization engine, we would understand nothing around us, could not reason in any form whatever, could not communicate to anyone else, and would have no basis on which to take any action.
every culture constantly, although tacitly, reinforces the impression that words are simply automatic labels that come naturally to mind and that belong intrinsically to things and entities"

"internet played “a far less significant role as an independent source of radicalisation than is generally assumed, and certainly a far less significant role than real life contact”.
The authors found that would-be jihadis went online to confirm and strengthen ideas that were already taking root, adding: “The internet then played a key role in reinforcing a decision that had in part been taken already.”
Far more important was friendship circles and social networks formed around mosques, prisons, schools, universities, neighbourhoods or the workplace – a conclusion supported by the high number of known British militants who were part of radical networks or left the country with friends and relatives."

“We .. see families not simply as behavioural systems, but as social structures organised around deeply tacit, and in part culturally rooted beliefs about the nature of language and the social world – beliefs that are themselves maintained in significant measure through patterns of familial communication (Applegate and Delia, 1980; Bernstein, 1974; Gecas, 1979; Grotevant, 1989; Lepper, 1983; Levine, 1989)
Most significantly, families (and parents within them) play a large role in imparting a logic – parallel to an economic theory, if you will – of how the social system works: of what social knowledge the child needs to acquire and how social knowledge, once acquired, can and should be used.”
Parental belief systems: The psychological consequences for children, (Sigel, McGillicuddy-DeLisi, & Goodnow, 2014
"..religious individual should be more concerned to maintain a cooperative image, a hypothesis supported by consistent finding that religiousness positively predicts socially desirable responding (e.g., Batson et al., 1993; Sedikides & Gebauer, 2010; Trimble, 1997)......
..social network hypothesis (Shariff, 2008). According to this hypothesis, it is not religious belief, in particular, that directly increases prosocial behaviour, but the social relationships and social opportunities afforded by religious group membership that facilitates prosocial reality. Our volunteerism data also fit well with this argument: religious individuals volunteer in order to increase social ties within their religious group, and because the social networks in their religious group provide them with the opportunities to help. The social network hypothesis also helps explain research showing that religiousness is related to pro social behaviour only toward other group members (Orbell et al., 1992; Tan & Vogel, 2008; Yinon & Sharon, 1985)"
The Oxford Handbook of prosocial behaviour, 2015
The fact is there are many cultures subject to worse "perceived injustice and discrimination." these cultures do not resort to utilising terror-genocide to redress grievances only specific cultures systemically do so, and therefore must be regarded as a threat wherever they are allowed into a social/political space. A test of such an argument can be found where the culture is dominant rather than Other cultures where Other cultures exist in the minority does the behavior against those determined as Other and the method change?
"How we think and feel about ourselves and others also depends on who we are, where we come from, and the groups we want to belong to. Applying this social identity perspective to the psychology of morality clarifies the role of moral guidelines and moral judgements in regulating individual behavior. Shared moral norms indicate what the group considers a good and proper group member. Behaving in line with these moral norms provides a way to secure group respect and inclusion. Thus people’s social identities – which groups they consider relevant to think of themselves and others – form a core aspect of moral judgements guiding moral behavior."

"The moral justification and levers of power for these movements, however, were for the most part not couched in political terms, but based on Islamic religious sources of authority and religious principles. By using these levers and appealing to deeply ingrained religious beliefs, the radical leaders succeed in motivating the Islamist terrorist, creating for him a social environment that provides approbation and a religious environment that provides moral and legal sanction for his actions. ...
Therefore, to treat Islamic terrorism as the consequence of political and socioeconomic factors alone would not do justice to the significance of the religious culture in which this phenomenon is rooted and nurtured. In order to comprehend the motivation for these acts and to draw up an effective strategy for a war against terrorism, it is necessary to understand the religious-ideological factors — which are deeply embedded in Islam."

"Almost nine years after the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri, the trial of his alleged killers has started in The Hague.
The defendants, all members of the powerful militia Hezbollah, are being tried in absentia – the first time this has happened at an international trial since the Nuremberg prosecutions.
The trial at the UN's special tribunal for Lebanon comes as the country continues to reel from instability caused by the 2005 killing and as a combustible political climate cripples the region.
Victims of the attack, which killed Hariri and 22 others and wounded several hundred more, have said they are expecting accountability from the process – a rare thing in Lebanon where assassinations have long been part of the political fabric, with perpetrators rarely caught."

"Joseph Hakim is a Lebanese native and President of the International Christian Union (ICU). In Hakim’s view, the jihadi forces within the Syrian opposition and Hezbollah on the other side, have used the conflict in Syria to ethnically cleanse the Christians. According to Hakim, the indigenous Christian minority in Syria is being “forced out of their native cities, towns, and villages.” Hakim bemoaned the passivity of the free world as it witnessed Christians being slaughtered, churches firebombed, priests being beheaded, and bishops kidnapped. “I feel that I am being accurate in calling what is happening genocide.”"

Attacks in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, and the Far East were linked to the IRGC-QF or Hizballah. In fact, Hizballah’s terrorist activity has reached a tempo unseen since the 1990s with attacks plotted in Southeast Asia, Europe, and Africa."

"Egypt’s military rulers on Sunday officially recognized Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood (Freedom and Justice Party) as the winner of Egypt’s first competitive presidential election, handing the Islamists both a symbolic triumph and a potent weapon in their struggle for power against the country’s top generals.

Mr. Morsi’s victory speech on Sunday. In it, he pledged repeatedly to be “a president for all Egyptians.” He quoted the first Muslim caliph to describe his authority in Islamic terms, but he also extended a hand to Egypt’s large Coptic Christian minority, many of whom remain dubious of him
"Khomeini nonetheless reassured his liberal revolutionary compatriots — just months before the revolution, while in Paris exile — that “women [would be] free in the Islamic Republic in the selection of their activities and their future and their clothing.” Much to its retrospective dismay, a sizable chunk of Iran’s liberal intelligentsia — both male and female — lined up behind Khomeini, some even referring to him as an “Iranian Gandhi.” Shortly after consolidating power, however, Khomeini and his disciples swiftly moved to crush opposing views and curtail female social and sartorial freedoms. “Islam doesn’t allow for people to [wear swimsuits] in the sea,” he proclaimed shortly after becoming supreme leader. We “will skin their hide!”
Women who resisted the mandatory veil were met with violence and intimidation, including lyrical taunts of “Ya roosari, ya toosari!” (“Cover your head or be smacked in the head!”). As Iranian Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi recently wrote, “Although the 1979 revolution in Iran is often called an Islamic revolution, it can actually be said to be a revolution of men against women.… The drafters of [the Islamic Penal Code] had effectively taken us back 1,400 years.”

Some Muslim leaders are honest enough to reveal such Muslim rationale exists which, has, can and does overwrite what the West and some Muslims determine as in the Ammam Message the 'true' interpretation of Islam. Clearly as terror-genocide continues as it has from the seventh century claiming such a statement as "extremely important" or represents the 'true path' is dangerous delusion given such as these inform policy. The Ammam Message's importance is written in humanities streets as it always has been.

Devout as a positive concept has to be re-evaluated
Devout as a positive concept has to be re-evaluated by the Australian Defence force as well as our security forces. As being devout in one culture does not I repeat does not have the same behavioural altruistic outcomes for Other cultures, in fact some cultures can and do inform systemic sociopath behaviour against Other cultures regarded as positive-altruistic behaviour by their own secular or religious cultures.
Being devout, significantly for Muslims is not I repeat is not connected to pro-Other altruistic in fact the reverse. Islamic religion-Muslim culture is not a positive for Other cultures the anomalies with this paradigm, which I refer to rightly as the Mincer Paradigm, are so significant historic and current as to determine in a mind open to actual evidence a change in assumptions is urgently required.

Compounding that with the very process which supercharges aggression
Also given prejudice is already heightened for the devout Muslim compounding that with the very process which supercharges aggression, in women free male only environments, a Mosque or similar gatherings which has as its sacred reflection source a terror-genocide construct of Other being acted out exactly as dictated or analogised from it right across the globe before our very eyes, not only once but five times a day reflecting on such ethical-moral constructs is a dangerous act for in time it will deliver terror into whatever Other institution decides to be so idiotic.
On own-side attacks by Muslims have to be sourced from an ethical-moral-behavioural-motivational cultural source utilising not only the categorisation of Other contained in the Quran and exemplar (messianic) template of Mohammad, but crucially a cultural process to reinforce and generate the emotional-cognitive drive to carry out these on-own side attacks. Seriously no one has worked out these all male five prayer gatherings of reinforcement-alignment are not generating, enabling the organizational means and mental force to cross the thresholds required? And you want to build more Mosques your putting our Other soldiers in mortal danger by such idiocy.

Muhammad's-Muslims categorisation of Other:
002.006 As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to them whether thou warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe.
002.007 God hath set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing, and on their eyes is a veil; great is the penalty they (incur).
002:018 They are utterly deaf, dumb, and blind; they can no longer recover.
003.118 O ye who believe! Take not into your intimacy those outside your ranks: They will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin: Rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths: What their hearts conceal is far worse.

Taqiyya is authority for Islamic religious dissimulation (lying, to conceal the truth/intent).
When compared to the categorisation of Other in Hitler's Mein Kampf one has to reflect on the relative venom, 'Words are dangerous weapons': New South Wales (Australian) Attorney-General Gabrielle Upton, and wonder given the same terror-genocide outcomes why we persist in the Mincer Paradigm.
Hitler's-Nazi categorisation of Other:
"But a Jew can never be rescued from his fixed notions."
''How futile it was to try to win over such people with argument, seeing that their very mouths distorted the truth, disowning the very words they had just used and adopting them again a few moments afterwards to serve their own ends in the argument!”
“rejecters of Faith!”= "moral pestilence, poison, despoilers, germ- carriers in poisoning human souls, shameful, fabricators, falsehood, cunning and despicable, derogatory, evil, cold-blooded, thick-skinned and shameless, alien race, evil spirits, absurdity of their teaching, obstinacy, tricks of logic, falsehoods, evil counsellors, perfidy, etc.
Why do some ideological rational systems create a terror-genocide construct of Other?

"We find that aggression is generally not a maladjusted reaction typical of the socially marginal; instead, aggression is intrinsic to status and escalates with increases in peer status until the pinnacle of the social hierarchy is attained. Over time, individuals at the very bottom and those at the very top of a hierarchy become the least aggressive youth. We also find that aggression is influenced not so much by individual gender differences as by relationships with the other gender and patterns of gender segregation at school. When cross-gender interactions are plentiful, aggression is diminished. Yet these factors are also jointly implicated in peer status: in schools where cross-gender interactions are rare, cross-gender friendships create status distinctions that magnify the consequences of network centrality."

“Norms-shared ideas about proper way to behave-are clearer, more firmly held and easier to enforce the more dense a social network. (If a social network consists of n “nodes”. People, firms or other social units, “density” is the proposition of the possible n(n-1)/2 connections among these nodes that are actually present.). This argument is one of the oldest in social psychology; for instance, see the classical account of Festinger, Schachter and Back (1948). It rests on the fact that the denser the network, the more unique paths along which information, ideas about proper behaviour are more likely to be encountered repeatedly, discussed and fixed; it also renders deviance from resulting norms harder and harder to hide and thus, more likely to be punished.” (Granovetter, 2005)
Australian Defence Force and Security institutions stop putting your employees and fellow citizens in danger utilising dangerous false assumptions which research determines as flawed, as well as goodness sake the actual burning buildings, broken bodies and lives Muslim culture being devout or otherwise continues informing even now in our Australian streets as it has with circumscribed lulls only in certain geographic spaces and times.
How many bloody anomalies and Muslim own-side do you need to change this failed Mincer Paradigm-apparently many more than one. Devotees of chaos theory may be tempted to believe anything is possible but it is only ever at the edges of a system the area remains the same.
Roman-Greek/Byzantine State and Society remember it, have a strategy based upon a short term vision having the enemy culture already attacking you from within and without claiming at the same time they are of your culture and support its continuance, take up positions in your military and security is wisdom or dangerous idiocy.
The Christian apologists for Christianity 64 AD- until they no longer bothered, in the main invariably, we are informed, assured the Roman/Greek culture they had nothing to fear yet at the same time there were a few Christians although defending the Christian faith clearly made no such concession, it was only the 'few' informing terror and they were not real Christians -although at times the 'few' were wearing Christian monk clothing. The formulators of policy in the Roman/Greek world wanting to hold onto their culture should have taken more notice of who?
The pagans objected and occupied the Serupium and the museion to protect them and the monks and a large Christian crowds, really a rabble, it would be equivalent to the old mob in the early Roman Empire. They stormed into these buildings smashing the statues, destroying the papyrus scrolls then the fighting spread across the city of Alexandria. Of course the Imperial army did nothing the population was maddened over the issue. They broke in carted off the cult statues to be melted down, they were turned into cookery, they were turned them into liturgical objects, for the use by Christians. Cult statues such as the great phallus of Priapus one of the famous fertility Gods was paraded around and cast into the streets as an absolutely disgusting idol Christians would have nothing to do with.
The result of this attack on the Serupium and museion was that classical Alexandria was essentially destroyed and Christian Alexandria emerged. Scholars and popular writers have viewed this destruction as a turning point, and there is a good reason to do so, the pagans that witnessed it, witnessed this destruction were absolutely intimidated and there are reports of conversions on the spot.
The Christian mob led by the monks destroyed these cult statues, nothing had happened. In addition the entire action although not ordered by the Imperial Government certainly the Emperor Theodosius I approved. And it is the climax to a series of legislation issued by Theodosius I who came to the throne in 379 AD who would forever ban the pagan sacrifices and also impose unity in the Imperial church. .. The Christians finally destroyed the pagan sanctuaries, where essentially between 391-414 wiped out that elite class that provided the neo-platonic philosophers.”

PHAA Chief Executive Michael Moore said that there is no inherent link between any religion and acts of terror:
"When you look at terrorism and the IRA, I don't think many people blamed Christianity for terrorism when clearly there was an overlay. In fact there's nothing inherent in Christianity that links to terrorism".

We have an ideological rationale system in our midst with a much more virulent terror-genocide construct of Other as well as a highly developed dissimulation codex authorised shield with no escape routes which enabled the Greeks in time to tame the Christian religion, and the Christian religion itself to reform itself away from a deviance paradigm inclusive of terror-genocide.
Pertinently despite David Kilcullen's assurance there exists enough critical mass of centralised Islamic/Muslim elite hierarchy to inform a "much more powerful and credible" force than a Western dictated alternative to an Islamic/Muslim cultural resolution of Muslim terror-genocide, even the anomalies above let alone others current and historic prove no such Islamic/Muslim centralised authority exists, as within in the Christian(Bishop-Patriarch-Pope-Synod-ecumenical councils)-Secular(Emperor-King-Parliament) combined hierarchies-interests which dealt/deal effectively with "theological and jurisdictional disputes" where "By and large Christians agree with each other on most important issues" able in the end, despite at times bloody conflicts, to agree to disagree regards Monophysitism, personal verses institutional interpretation of theology, celibacy, etc.
The core Christian reason, in complete contrast to Muslims inability, to agree to disagree is the Christian construct of Other, and the acceptance written in the Christian codex of the existence of a social/political power separate to the Christian institutions the secular State with which Christians for the most part accept being subject to. The significant variance of personal interpretation of Christian religious text-patchwork Christians drove the ideas of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity, Democracy, requiring a secular State to exist to protect an ability to define a worldview although inevitably limited by culture you ended up in, there was the increased possibility for the existence of differring views without having you head removed from your shoulders, being blown to bits in cafes, buses, trains, music venues, in public spaces anywhere anytime. The blasphemy construct was thought to be buried but alas we see its body rising once again with the help of our own Western gatekeepers. Islam does not recognise the secular state as a bonafide construct only as a step to the realisation of an Islamic state.
'Words are dangerous weapons' as New South Wales (Australian) Attorney-General Gabrielle Upton states but they can and do represent real impending dangers particularly for those cultures who refuse to read the fine print, and are so caught up in protecting a human fabricated construct which worked fine when 'By and large cultures with no significantly different ethical-beliefs constructs could agree with each other on most important issues' existed in the same space which no longer exists in Western space.
"The findings of the study indicate that citizens (Hofstede and Hofstede (2005)) of Islamic countries share similar cultural values that vary significantly with those of the Western countries."
As a result we have bloody piles in our streets with more to come, and terror will come from Other as well, as the gatekeepers continue to refuse to protect grasping onto the failed human fabricated construct as the blood of their citizens swirls around their feet and scarce resources are thrown in increasing amounts in an attempt to cover their complicity and utter failure. Muslim terror-genocide normalised as a simple criminal offence rather than what it has always been a cultural act of war.
Change the Mincer Paradigm to one which in the end will actually stop Muslim terror-genocide in humanities streets rather than continue to manage it into humanities streets, as history proves you enable a culture intent on your demise, giving such a culture continual training by opposing them in the field and not completely removing the architect and builder which provides them with the system rationale-emotional-cognitive motivation to persevere and combined particularly with training in your own defensive processes, strategies and even command control positions is an extremely dangerous act. Think for goodness sake past next week-think centuries.
Hoping like Obama and Blair the Muslim culture will reform itself in time ignores the reality there is no critical mass force of hierarchy to inform such a change, even if it existed they have no overriding Islamic/Muslim codex justification to bring fellow Muslims with them to stop the inter-sect Muslim violence and external violence against Other. Time for honesty in accepting the number of anomalies requires a new paradigm to be created otherwise the Damascus fortressing and Muslim terror-genocide continues with Other cultures as elsewhere alas inevitably responding in kind as we are seeing only the beginnings of now.
