Captain Mona Shindy
When I was serving under the colours if you so much as hinted at a political opinion then the chances are you would be asked to resign your commission. Professional ADF Officers are required to be apolitical.
Or at least they were .
Not any more it seems, particularly if you are a Muslim. Captain Mona Shindy (pictured) is the Chief of Navy’s strategic adviser on Islamic affairs.
Strategic adviser on Islamic affairs! What the hell does that mean?
In a Defence situation Strategy is the art of planning and directing overall military operations and movements in a war or battle but apparently not only has the requirement to be apolitical changed but so has the definition of strategy.
So, is Captain Shindy's role to advise the Chief of Navy on how to strategically defeat the Islamic Terrorists?
No! It would appear her role is to attack any Australian politician who says anything negative about Islam. As senior Muslim in the Navy Captain Shindy has been operating a Twitter account.
From The Australian;
A navy Twitter account has been shut down after its most senior Muslim officer retweeted a counter-terrorism expert mocking Tony Abbott following the Liberal Party leadership coup and backed the Grand Mufti’s response to the Paris terrorist attacks.
Two reasons to ask her to resign her commission right there in that one sentence. Publicly Mocking a politician and siding with the enemy.
On November 18, five days after the Paris attacks, Captain Shindy used the @navyislamic account to declare Dr Abu Mohamed was a “righteous & courageous man who categorically denounces” Islamic State and terrorism, tweeting the hashtag #IStandWithTheMufti.
Take her uniform off her and let her #StandwiththeMufti who thinks causative factors such as foreign policy, the media and lack of opportunity were fuelling Islamic extremism.
That is, the West are to blame.
The Chief of Navy and the Minister for Defence need to be questioned by the Media as to how this situation has been allowed to continue. However, that's not going to happen anytime soon as the Media most probably think it's a good thing. As the ADF continues to march towards political correctness as dictated by the Left they are losing their emphasis on defending the realm.
Bernard Gaynor has a lot more about Captain Shindy
reckons she's a winner.
