Embarassing that this comes from Australia, what are the chances we would ever here this from the first black president of the united states, or from the last one for that matter. It is from a proud Canadian but should be screamed from the rooftops in this country .........Canada is in dire Need of A Leader Like This!





Prime Minister Kevin Rudd - Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out ofAustralia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..


Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote:

'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. '

I'm not sure what this is a "great" example of. Sounds like religous and ethnic hatred to me.

This is a combination of two email chains that mixes quotes from Australia along with quotes from an email editorial written by a US resident.

You should really check that out OP, before attributing quotes to people that did not speak those words.

I have always found Aussies to stand up for their country and not...
Be silenced by PC-madness.
I can think of a few countries who could follow this example.
