The Australian Constitution guarantees freedom of religion. And, let's be quite honest here. The Australian government doesn't have the power to force out people who are of any given religion - it does, however, have the power to crack down on immigration, and make sure no more crazies who aren't willing to integrate come across.

We have family there and my Dad will be going back for his 3rd trip to AU and New Zeeland this year.

If you want to go, start applying now. It'll take you ten years to get permission/visa to live there, IF you're lucky. ;)

Wish we were so strict!

>Well, I reiterated exactly word for word what was at the bottom of the link to snopes given as the source at the top of this thread: the email that was posted here today (& the quotes therein) are, word for word, from 2005 & the quotes here were taken verbatim from statements made in the days after the tube bombings. That's explained at the link to snopes given here

No kidding. Who disputed that?

>Some people (incl you?) seem to think that these quotes are of more recent vintage, that's all. It's an old email.

I said this:

Perhaps in 2005 the issue died down, but over the past 6 months it's very much in the news again in Australia. The clerics are only getting more brazen and the public knows about it.

Not sure what in there makes you think I think the quotes are recent when I dated them myself.

What is recent is that the Govt of Australia is making many statements very similar to those they made back then.

Your statement implied that this was old news and not quite relevant to today. It is relevant. And this story shows it is also not something new.

pacelvi, this is unbelievably stupid. I NEVER said that it isn't relevant to today in AUS. Anyone who's paid any attention at all to the news coming out of there for the last few months wouldn't.

(sigh) So allow me to R E P E A T for the last time: I was merely pointing out to readers that this is a retread of an old mass-circulated email from 2005 for those who might be confused & think it's more recent & I was doing so for the sake of accuracy on FR, because this forum's reputation gets slammed for stuff like that. That's all.

No one, least of all me, ever said anything consistent with the idea that Aussie-Muslim relations are hunky-dory in 2007.

Good grief, enough already.
