Reader comment on item: Islamists, Get Out

Submitted by John Giannasca (Australia), Oct 27, 2005 at 19:18

Every now and again someone captures the essence of how you feel, and today when I read your words I had total emphathy for them. In Australia we have seen first hand the truly extreme side of Islam in the bombings that our people (along with many many others from arround the world) experienced in Bali. I have no doubt that unless your words are heeded, unless Australia wakes up and truly embraces all measures to counter this threat, then we will suffer the fate of other countries that have tolerated Islamists and suffered the consequence.

The Australian Government is proposing to introduce new anti-terroism legislation next week. The current debate is polarising our community because of the many who fear a loss of the liberty that they once had. Well these Islamists are the cause. Get rid of them and get rid of the problem.....I know it will never happen, but I can dream.
