Dear Viewers, What Do You Think?

Our Friend, Paul, has sent us the "Quotation" and I felt quite selfish to read it myself and not to share it with you.

> A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to Australia and her Queen 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 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 who 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.

> 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 multi-cultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. And 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 ... 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".

PS: We Hear You!

As for countries being very tough on Sharia, I am for it 100 percent. Present Iran must be a good example for every democratic country if they do not take it seriously. Iranians can not be Iranian in their own country! (Think about it how painful that is).

These mafia type clans in Europe, Australia, and elsewhere must be crushed and also their supporting networks in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, ….. and Iran must be vigorously confronted and dismantled. Meanwhile, all free and democratic societies must support Iranians in their struggle to free themselves from chain of Sharia in establishing their rightful democratic government. It must be realized by all in free world that Iran can be the only democratic society in that region and the entire world would benefit by supporting it financially, culturely and militarily. Iran is the key to whole region for democracy and has its culture rooted in their people and heritage of pre-Islamic. Their obstacle to this path has been backwardness of Islam.

As for fighting Sharia by emphasizing the Christianity as religion for these countries, I must declare that this is a step backward. Secular democracy must be without doubt propagated. Religion must be only a private matter and must not be given any public preferential treatment.

Secular democracy is answer to Sharia’s inhumane and backwardness.

I agree, if they want to live under Sharia they should get out of Australia, because they are going to get none down under. It is like all those Iranian communists who are now living in the USA or Europe, they should all move to Cuba or North Korea.

We will

We agree with you.
They are like fungus; they grow everywhere in all kinds of conditions, just as they find ways to penetrate into any healthy system and cause its desctruction. look at the way they have been washing brains all around EU and the U.S.A.
