Its not footy, but worth chatting about -
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.
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.
'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.'
Roll over Mr Brown - or learn from the aussies
So John,if ,say people from an African country came over and found unlimited sources of gold in the pennines,they could freely take all back to their country?without having to give the British anything?
No-one in S.A was aware of the potential mineral wealth in the countries underbelly before the Europeans arrived. It certainly isn't the S.A's many are worried about.
Before we make reparations to these countries, would you care to try and balance the books, and offset those reparations against financial aid.
Taking a quick peek at one country (Somalia)
Lots of the former inhabitants have found their way here. Most are Sunni Muslims. Somalia was, up to 1960 colonised by Britain and Italy. From the days of the 'Mad Mullah' Somalia has very rarely had any sustained peacetime. Even now, there is not one ruling governing body, and it's not OUR fault they are at war now. You can lay the blame for that at the doorstep of the CIA and the American armed forces, who only maintained interest while Somalia offered strategic military importance.
Left to their own devices, they produce cattle and bananas for export, and that's it. Not exactly what you would call mineral rich.
This country has a high density of radical Muslim groups, and an awful humanitarian record (female genital mutilation is still standard practise both in Somalia and in the UK behind closed doors) So for the few that come here with no ulterior motives, and who want nothing more than to contribute to our society, and live a better life, this is ruined by the many who have nothing but 'attack the west' and 'drain what resources we can' on their minds.
Thats #$%$ - the minerals we mined in Africa had been there millions of years, yet the locals hadnt the brains or sense to mine them.
Just look at Mugabe's efforts if you want to see how they get on without British help.
excellent primer in lazy thinking.
josecomeback, try shutting your granny like prattle for a minute, cut down on the ceaseless inane posting and give yourself time to think for yourself.
who knows, you may even experience an original concept for the first time in your corny parroting brain.
but i very much doubt it.
