I was glad to see the Aussies take back their beaches. I read that the lebanese like rap music and some how feel a sort of kinship with black americans. Unfortunatly the muslims are once again off base. Black americans are in fact americans, they've fought for their country in every war that they've been allowed to fight in and are an integral part of what america is.

They did so with a belief in a better america. It was liberalism that has allowed them to prosper and enjoy a free society. Muslims have no historical base in what it is to be an Aussie. The muslims didn't finger the British, they didn't fight the Japanese and they certainly don't know what sacrifices it took to be a free and open society. They do know how to take advantage of such a free society though. Somehow you've become the bigot now, its a shame....

After 9/11 their were a handfull of attacks against muslims, and in fact half the attacks were against indians who were believed to be muslim....bigots aren't too smart. Unfortunately the sensible muslims never took a voice and that is probably the most disturbing thing. Islam has created a monster that might have once had a purpose but now is a somber complexity of poison. You're sleeping with the enemy.
