Reader comment on item: Anti-Muslim Racism?
in response to reader comment: NO, to muslim immigration in Australia

Submitted by Mary Connor (Australia), Sep 5, 2008 at 08:37

Many people believe, with a lot of justification, that Australia has enough people, Whether Muslim or whatever. We have water problems, many homeless people, and our indigenous people have yet to attain a decent lifestyle. Obviously, if there are too many of an alien culture, there will be ethnic tensions as has already happened. I t is better to have people who fit in and those of fundamentalist Muslim persuasion do not wish to integrate or assimilate. If we are going to squeeze in yet more people it is better to take those who are being driven out of places such as Zimbabwe on purely racist grounds, as they will not be welcome in Middle Eastern or Asian coun tries.
