Default something for Brits to think about

The Australian Way

THREE CHEERS FOR AUSTRALIA

I wish the leaders of our country would take a stand like
Australia.....

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on
Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals
in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty
to Australia at a special meeting with Prime Minister John Howard, he
and his ministers made it clear that extremists would face a crackdown.
Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard,
hinted that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if
they did not accept that Australia was a secular state and its laws were
made by parliament.
"If those are not your values, if you want a country which has
Sharia law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you," he
said on national television.
"I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two
laws governing people in Australia, one the Australian law and another
the Islamic law, that is false. If you can't agree with parliamentary
law, independent courts, democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have
the opportunity to go to another country, which practices it, perhaps,
then, that's a better option," Costello said.
Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave,
he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to
the other country.
Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that
Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off". *
"Basically, people who don't want to be Australians, and they
don't want to live by Australian values and understand them, well then
they can basically clear off," he said. Separately, Howard angered some
Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies
monitoring the nation's mosques. *

AMERICA and Canada..... ARE YOU LISTENING?
Quote:
IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It !
I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some
individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we
have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians
However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the
"politically correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility that
our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor
do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming
to Australia.
However, there are a few things that those who have recently
come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand. *
This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has
served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As
Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language
and our own lifestyle.
This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles,
trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought
freedom. We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic,
Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you
wish to become part of our society, then learn the language!
Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian,
right wing, political push but a fact because Christian men and women,
on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly
documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of
our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another
part of the world as your new home, Because God is part of our culture.
We will accept your beliefs and will not question why, all we
ask is that you accept ours and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment
with us.
If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like "A Fair
Go", then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this
planet.
We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and
we really don't care how you did things where you came from. By all
means keep your culture but do not force it on others.
This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will
allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this, but once you are done
complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our
Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take
advantage of one other great Australian freedom, "THE RIGHT TO LEAVE."

If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to
come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.

Pretty easy really, when you think about it. I figure if we all
keep passing this to our friends (and enemies) it will also, sooner or
later get back to the complainers, lets all try, please.

huraah-common sense being spoken at last -if you don't like it here with our laws and ways then feck off somewhere else-fed up with having to tolerate all the bullsheet about being understanding with these people-if I go to a country where there are different customs etc I oblige-but people can come over here and we're expected to go out our way and change for them-plain crazy.
Oz puts its own people first,time we done the same .

No it doesnt, it puts its own white people first not all of the people. And its a bit hypocritical for a non-indigenous government to expect people coming to the country to adhere to ITS laws and customs, yet it itself couldnt do so for the aborigines and adhere to theirs. Hypocrisy of the highest order.

But I guess all of you too eager to jump on the muslim bashing bandwagon dont want to see the realities and want to ignore the inconvenient truth. That the Australian government arent prepared to do what theyre asking the modern worlds scapegoats to do.

And Ive lived in Canberra for 18 months and seen exactly what its like. There is a first and second class in that country and its perfectly ok if youre white. Probably why so many on here think its great - because if they went theyd be ok, they wouldnt be discriminated against or encounter the hostility that is prevalent between the white better off class and the mainly non white worse off class. And because theyd be ok thats just fine to ignore the hypocrisy.

Sorry but you cant expect people to follow your rules when you yourself cant follow the exact same rules - and we're not talking about what happened hundreds of years ago. Im talking about discriminatory and racist policies which the Howard government are running NOW.

Thats not to say I dont understand why this was said - I do. But the Howard government is in knee jerk mode and doesnt really distinguish between the radicals and less radical muslims. Its a perfect example of a society like ours - where simply being a muslim is becoming a crime even if youre not a radical. THATS what I have a problem with when this muslim bashing bandwagon gets hauled out each time.

Yep, those abos are living it up

And this:

"Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push but a fact because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly
