Racest or not?

Post by Short Circuit on Thu Jun 07, 2012 4:14 am

Prime Minister Julia Gillard- 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..


Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by
saying she 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. '

'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.'

'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.'

Maybe
if we circulate this amongst ourselves in Britain, Europe, Canada
& USA , WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the
same truths.




So, was she right in making this statement, should other countries adopt this policy, or is it just racism?

Depends on your views.

Me myself?

I would say, she is right to make this statement.

I mean if they come to the united kingdom, they should abide by our laws. For example Airports, they should have to remove headware even if it is religious. National security threat.

They are living in a country that has other beliefs. For the most part we respect there beliefs but they are ignorant to ours. They don't show the slightest respect (Not all but a strong majority).

Overall the statement was harsh but true in my opinion. I don't agree with every aspect but for the most part I agree with it.

Kyle could you post a link to this article. As I would like to read it from the source.

I think she was completely right in saying this.
There is no reason that a nation should change because a few people don't like something. You don't like it then leave or shut up. Razz
