|Hyde Park, Sydney, 15 Sept. From here. Is this "child abuse"?|
Another Aussie mate, an old Leftie like me, sends email: I saw today's papers and the violent Muslim demo in Sydney with the 'beheading' signs.
A lot of people there must be very pissed off. Today, Australia has a Muslim problem.
Let's hope that in the months ahead Muslims have an Australia problem - big time.
But in the left-of-centre Sydney Morning Herald, the criticism was of the police! And the mate goes on to say:
I see today that this outrage in Sydney is being handled 'sensitively'. Big mistake. Leaders referring to Oz's successful 'multiculturalism'. I don't see any Greeks, Poles and Italians calling for beheading..The police have thousands of close up shots of all these pricks, and if a big number are not sent down (or if not yet Oz Citizens and deported) then it's a sad day the the country.
... And numerous fuckwit comments in the SMH. They just don't get it.
I agree with all that. A little learning of the tenets of Islam, of its core doctrine, is needed. I submit that it's impossible to read the Koran, the Hadith, et al and not be seriously disturbed about what we're dealing with here.
