Dear Joe,

Thank You for your lovely, kind words. Me and
my family have never seen ourselves as victims
in this country. Dad raised me to believe that -
life is what you make of it. To take responsibility.
I'm simply sharing their and my experiences that
we've lived through and I'm pleased to see that
some others are doing likewise because it is
obvious that some people here need a reminder about
Australia's real identity. They seem to have
forgotten its strength.

Some people's rhetoric here ignores the truth that
Australia has been built on contributions from
immigrants and refugees for hundreds of years and
that Australia's "strength" lies in how welcoming its
people are. It seems that some need a reminder of
who we really are.

Again - Thank You.

Dear Josephus,

Comparing Australia to your list of countries to me
is not rational. We are a representative democracy,
We have a predominant culture and a predominant
language and an institutional framework that protects
order and the rule of law.

Communism just as facism has never presented a major
challenge to the established order of Australia.

And as for your concerns regarding Muslims? Well,
according to the 2016 Australian Census the number
of people who self-identify as Muslims are - 604,200
people or 2.6% of the total Australian population.

Your over all fears are unfounded.

The attacks on Jewish kids are being characterised as 'bullying' by those trying to minimise it.

I suspect the characterisation would have been different if the 'bullies' weren't Mohomedians.

Multiculturalism doesn't work in non-western countries so why do people think it should work here when it so clearly doesn't. Unless of course people believe enclaves are a success story !

mhaze,

No one is trying to minimize attacks on kids.
Bullying is bullying no matter who does it and
attacks be they on Jewish kids, Catholic kids,
Muslim kids, or any other kids, is abhorrent.

I don't understand your specific kind of bigotry,
but I do acknowledge your total commitment to it.

Individual,

When you suggest that multiculturalism 'doesn't work', do you mean that it has some wrinkles, like any other social arrangement ? Do you see problems with Greeks, Italians, Maltese, Poles, Lithuanians, Yugoslavs, etc. ? i.e. fundamental, or fundamentally irresolvable, problems ? I don't.

Of course, there are problems with some sections of the Muslim populations, as in the rest of the world. Adherents of authoritarian ideologies, whether Muslims or socialists or rat-bag Christians, etc., usually have no desire to mix with 'outsiders' who they would rather 'subtract' in order to improve or even perfect society, 'for its own good'.

In the nineteenth century, the authorities were very hostile on the Fenians, spying on their meetings, arresting their leaders. Of course, they were planning for a free Ireland, a quite legitimate objective, and that mucks up my case somewhat. But there's always been out-groups, not even necessarily on ethnic grounds.

Joe

My son was attacked by a bunch of Muslims in Alawa, Sydney & suffered his skull fractured in 4 places. This was nor bullying, this was Muslim ethnic cleansing of their desired suburbs, an unpleasant side effect of Multiculturalism.

You don't need multiculturalism to have bullying, just be a stranger. My father after the war was a trouble shooter. Once he had sorted a branch we moved on to the next. I went to 17 different schools. I suffered bullying at every new school, & some bad bashings. This was in country towns mostly, & no ethnics were involved, just bullying Ozzies.

At age 10 dad organised fighting lessons for me. Fighting not boxing, so I could really defend myself. After that, when at each new school the seniour bully would pick a fight with me, I could thrash him. They then had a problem, when I was not interested in being the new bully, they did not know where to put me.

Fortunately dad changed jobs, & I had my last 4 years in the very good Young High school, or I would never have got to uni. It was nice to be part of the kids, rather than the stranger.
