......but not for a long time yet!

Michel Zala:

"Indeed, having returned from the US to Switzerland after 20 years, I most definitely did not recognize
the nation I grew up in anymore either....., Switzerland as well has clearly taken a dangerous
direction of following suit in terms of immigration policy to the very "tolerant" Germans

So even in industrious and democratic Switzerland , government policies - not agreed to by the people at election time - have robbed you and other Swiss of their birthright right of living in a cohesive and distinctly Swiss culture?

" I put my present hope upon the proximity of Libya to France and Europe and the extremely evident proof as to who actually supported the anti-Ghaddafi forces as opposed to Russia or China or even most muslim nations for that matter. I know that gratitude fades quickly, but in many areas of France for instance, people still feel strongly about America's efforts on DDay or the liberation.

Ah, yes - but that is the French.

Here's how Commonwealth (including Australian) troops who died saving Libya from another totalitarian regime were treated - AFTER their 'revolution' mind you. http://news.sky.com/home/world-news/article/16181894. They just don't like that cross do they - bit of a blight on their precious landscape no doubt.

".....It's go to the stage here where Muslims have demanded (and , shamefully, been given) prayer rooms at AFL (Aussie Rules)football stadiums! In Australia - can you believe it?

"...Do I feel better now in the knowledge that other nations I love and respect seem to appease this minority with the same lack of common sense? It is tragic comedic. "

The general populace were apalled at this move.

Here's a recent meeting of equally deluded minds between a contingent of muslims who know what Allah wants and atheists who have no clue what anyone needs in Melbourne:

"I am also happy to hear that the US Australian alliance is still strong, as I feel that the Pac Rim will be a hotspot of tension in the near future......."

Could be - but really, as far as high tech weaponry and nukes go - China hasn't got a pot to piss in compared to the US. The Chinese have a heightened sense of self-interest and wouldn't dare risk such a confrontation outside their borders. They'd rather keep busy trading - i.e. swapping deckchairs on the Titanic

"...Not even Obama has dared to change direction of these long term plans and fortunately the PACCOm is as solid as ever."

He's a bit of a hustler to my mind and knows what is politically expedient and what is not - he knows he'd never get away with it - and what would be the point? Putting aside our cultural, religious , political , linguistic and racial commonality - the USA is our 3rd biggest trading partner - less than 2 percentage points behind the Chinese

"Greetings to down under, Mate. I'll have a Fosters on your health."

Michel , you've just given me an idea. I should go to one of those prayer rooms (they're not muslim-exclusive by the way) at an AFL stadium during a big game, and take that can of Fosters or a bottle of wine and set up a small altar to one of the favourite Roman deities - Bachus - the god of Wine.
It would be interesting to see if muslims let me exercise and enjoy my own religious freedom in my own country.
