More background to the Australian riot

Goes to show motivation. From The Australian, an article entitled "Racism is repulsive, but so is self-loathing":

YESTERDAY a colleague emailed me from New York. The young lawyer - her family lives in Brighton-Le-Sands, a bayside suburb north of Cronulla in Sydney - wrote: "While I agree there is no justifying excuse for the violence and breakdown in order that occurred at Cronulla, it needs to be put in context. Unless you live in an area like Cronulla, Brighton-Le-Sands or Bondi, you have no idea what it is like to have one's suburb regularly inundated with large groups of young Muslim men from the western suburbs who proceed to shoot people [as has happened in Brighton], intimidate people, regularly threaten people within their vicinity with violence, drive around in large groups screaming abuse at people from cars with their music blaring, regularly brawling, etc."

This young woman recounted that all of the girls in her family (except the youngest) have been "subject to harassment inflicted by groups of these men - comments on our appearances, racist comments on our Australian background, unwanted touching, being followed while walking home by groups of men in cars (I was once followed all the way home - have never been so scared in my life), sexually explicit remarks while alone, with friends or with boyfriends, unwanted called-out invitations to have sex with groups of them, etc".

And from the BBC:

Jason Lalor lives minutes from the beach and is pessimistic that there is a quick fix to the deeply rooted antagonism on both sides.

He says he has been harassed by groups of Lebanese youths on more than one occasion and says he is tired of being hassled in his own neighbourhood.

"It's not going to stop one day. It's going to keep going, which is what it's been doing since my father's time."

No worries, I will be back.

I just have a paper I NEED to finish by January 3rd. Its not a question of wanting to have it finished, I actually NEED to finish it. And the web and blogging just takes too much of my time.

Those remarks are 100% accurate.

I'm 32 and I grew up in "the Shire". My parents still live in Sutherland and I only left a year ago.

For decades, the constant (daily) presence of predominantly Muslim gang members into Sydney's south has been a brooding source of discomfort and tension.

It has long been known that because of PC considerations (and fear of being brought up on racism charges) NSW police will not arrest Muslim offenders, even if they are caught in the act of beating/harassing an Australian.

This has led to a brazen sense of invincibility among the Muslim community, which is only further enflamed by a painfully apologetic media, who cannot blame their white victims quickly enough.

Angry Australians punch a couple of Muslim gang members who showed up on our day of protest and slagged us off. They thought they were safe in doing so because of the police.

The media goes insane with racist hysteria.

For weeks afterward (and for 15 years before Cronulla), Australians were systematically targeted for savage beatings (with baseball bats) and stabbings. The victims were always white males who were outnumbered 10 to 1. Muslims are brave that way.

Lastly, I just wanted to say that I'm sick to DEATH of people carrying on about the "racism" on display at Cronulla, and how it can never be excused. Were those ignorant wretches even there? No.

The only people attacked were attacked by people who they had verbally assaulted from the sidelines, screaming taunts about "stupid f*cking skips" (Muslim slang for Australians), and repeatedly flipping them off. These were KNOWN gang members, easily identified by their haircuts, clothes and attitude. They got into scuffles, nothing more.

In the days afterward, Muslims smashed tens and tens of cars in beachside suburbs (cars don't fight back) burned half a dozen churches and stabbed several Australians.

And the media yawned in response.

There's racism going on in Australia all right, and it's exactly the same as the kind going on in France, being committed by the exact same people.

In both cases, the media chose to side with the Muslims.

This is sheer craziness. I keep having to pinch myself. I think the Left is more to blame than anybody. They are mad and pursuing a power-grabbing agenda. Their tactics are those of moral tyrants who demonize anybody politically incorrect. Their favorite weapon is what we here in the US call "the race card." Getting called a "racist" by someone who throws that word around like a hand grenade is the kiss of death. And this is the result -- a minority that can do no wrong and therefore feels free to goose-step over the majority.

You guys are great!

Radical Islam is not spreading in Australia like it is in Europe.

That is because Australians tend to be less politicaly correct, smaller muslim population and stricter with immigration issues.

Europe needs to be less afraid of defending its cultures.
