Reader comment on item: Anti-Muslim Racism?
in response to reader comment: Is Australia a racist country?

Submitted by Jacinta (Australia), Jun 20, 2009 at 20:24

You are so right Nadia! we are studying about australia at school and discussing the Cronulla riots. The comments that some of my class members said are just awful and many were to the lebanese community. (i am lebanese) The media, you know has shaped their response and their understanding that ALL middle eastern men are causing ALL the trouble here. ALL classifies everyone. what happens to the fathers, brothers, and working men whom keep this country on its feet? They have been forgotten and classified as trouble makers also.

Most of the lebanese who are trouble makers in this country are mostly muslims. However the Lebanese Christians, Maronites, Catholic, and others have been blamed as well because of the mentioning of the LEBANESE. Ps. most "gangs" are made up of muslim Lebanese and through their unwanted behavior we, as a Lebanese community in Australia are blamed.
