John Howard, unlike many American politico, says what needs to be said. Here is his words I recieved via e-mail. To bad us Yanks can't find a president with some "sack."
John Howard:Muslims who want to live under Islamic Shari
law were told on Wednesday to get out of
Australia , as the government targeted radicals
in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
Separately, Howard 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 patriotismby the majority of Australians'.
'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victoriesby millions of men an d women who have sought freedom'. 'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'
'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriateto display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'
'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony andpeaceful enjoyment with us.'
'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunityto enjoy all this. But once you are donecomplaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christianbeliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE!'
'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. Wedidn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOUaccepted.'
