Waleed Aly says our responses to terrorism are not about the loss of innocent life—we only think it is. He also claims terrorism is just a perpetual irritant. Aly would have us believe that while terrorism is an inconvenient pain in the butt, it kills relatively few people and is not any kind of existential threat. Such thinking conveniently ignores the London bombings, the killing of over 3,000 innocent people at the World Trade Centre, the two Bali bombings and a string of terrorist bombings and thwarted terrorism threats here in Australia.
Aly, is an Austraian-born Muslim who thinks multiculturalism doesn't lead to parallel societies, or isolated sub-cultures, as he calls them. He doesn't believe there is any link between multiculturalism and terrorism. This claim, of course, dismisses the experience of countries such as France, Holland, Belgium, Spain, and lately England, all of which are either legislating, or about to legislate, the end of multiculturalism. Aly completely ignores the words of Lee Kuan Yew, the father of modern Singapore, who said that only Muslims refused to be integrated into the Singaporean society.
As Muslims in particular use our anti-hate laws to their best advantage under the orchestral arrangement of multiculturalism, "fools rush in" like Barry O'Farrell and Nicola Roxon to establish a greater Nanny State making it easier to lodge complaint. With The Australian Human Rights Commission adjudicating, and vying for relevance, biased findings are surely a forgone conclusion? GC.Ed.
In the week before the Cronulla riot, Jones described the young Muslim men who for years had been sexually harassing women on the beach as ''vermin'' and ''mongrels'' who ''rape and pillage''. That was the context of his comments, a context which dropped away entirely as a prosecution for hate speech by the Administrative Decisions Tribunal dragged on for seven years. No mention was made in Sunday's news reports of the far more sinister and contemporaneous example of public hate speech on September 15 last year.
During a demonstration that turned violent in Sydney, some protesters carried provocative placards including one infamous message, ''Behead those who insult the Prophet''. Many wore headbands with Arabic script exhorting jihad. Among the chants was, ''Our dead are in paradise, your dead are in hell''.
NEIGHBOURS are divided over a proposed "halal housing" development in Sydney's west.
While some feared it would lead to friction with Muslims, others welcomed the plan.

The military arm of Hamas has been listed on our books as a criminal organisation since 1995. Dr Mohamed's visit displays his arrogance and contempt for Australians. When will our leaders put end to this divisive attitude by Muslim leaders and "scholars" who then preach against us? GC.Ed.
"I am pleased to stand on the land of jihad to learn from its sons and I have the honour to be among the people of Gaza where the weakness always becomes strength, the few becomes many and the humiliation turns into pride," he told local news agencies.
"We came here in order to learn from Gaza. As I said in my speech, we will make the stones, trees, and people of Gaza talk, in order to learn steadfastness, sacrifice, and the defence of one's rights from them.
ARREST warrants on charges of attempted murder and robbery have been issued for 14 asylum seekers on a pirated fishing boat which is thought to be headed for Australia
It depends how you view Al Grassby; was he the genius father of Australian multiculturalism in or was he a crooked pest whose massive ego drove him to legislate what has become the nation’s most hated and socially divisive policy?
To begin with, Grassby did not invent “multiculturalism” as so many revisionists of history want us to believe; he stole the concept from then Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau during his visit to Canada in 1973.
Bereft of original ideas, Grassby had no idea of Canada’s social underpinnings to understand what Pierre Trudeau was trying to do, and that was to forge a harmony between the English and French. The French harboured a long festering sore from their defeat by English troops in 1759. Trudeau’s policy had nothing to do with immigrants settling in Canada.
Ever eager to promote his short political career, Grassby was encouraged by Gough Whitlam to fly his “new invention” with full fanfare. Grassby’s concept, however, was totally different from Canada’s as he sought to eliminate integration and assimilation into the customs of the host nation with millions in cash grants to remain separate. Three decades later and hundreds of millions of dollars squandered on social division, Grassby’s goal has been achieved—although posthumously. His $72,000 statue in Canberra should advertise: “Behold, the father of government sponsored apartheid.”
David Cameron will claim today that uncontrolled immigration has undermined some British communities.
In his most forthright speech on the issue since he became Prime Minister, he will say that mass immigration has led to "discomfort and disjointedness" in neighbourhoods because some migrants have been unwilling to integrate or learn English.
Mr Cameron will say: "When there have been significant numbers of new people arriving in neighbourhoods, perhaps not able to speak the same language as those living there, on occasions not really wanting or even willing to integrate, that has created a kind of discomfort and disjointedness in some neighbourhoods."
It follows a speech by Mr Cameron earlier this year in which he said that British Muslims should subscribe to mainstream values of freedom and equality, and claimed that the doctrine of multi-culturalism had “failed”.
Which world leader is in total denial that the doctrine of multi-culturalism had “not failed”?
A: UK PM David Cameron
B: French President Nicolas Sarkozy
C: German Chancellor is Angela Merkel
D: AUST PM Julia Gillard
If 5,000 people were marching in step, Julia Gillard would be the one person out of step.
Out of step on the failure of Multiculturalism, Carbon Tax, Mining Tax, Women in combat roles, NBN, gambling, plain packaging of cigarettes al etc.
