Anti-Arab rioters smash cars, windows in Sydney
CNN Online ^ | 12/12/05 | staff

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -- Violence on the streets of Sydney spilled into a second night Monday, as scores of youths drove through beachside suburbs smashing windows of stores, homes and apartments, police said.

Any hopes that a race riot Sunday would be an isolated incident were shattered after dark when car loads of youths rampaged through southeastern Sydney chased by hundreds of police vehicles and a helicopter.

A police spokesman said the violence first broke out in Cronulla, where Sunday's riots also started.

So when muslims riot for weeks in France they are disenfranchised or digruntled youths...when young people in Australia riot they are Anti-Arab rioters. Is there possibly a small bias at CNN?

Actually, if you look at the news from Australia, it becomes clear that the window-breaking is actually being done BY the Arabs. Reporters are too lazy to actually look at silly things like "facts" before publishing a story, particularly when it meshes with their pre-determined agenda...

"Is there possibly a small bias at CNN?"

France - anti-Iraq War / anti-Bush / anti-WOT

Australia - pro WOT, pro Iraq War, friend of Bush

You make the call.

They're not rioters until they burn 1000 cars.

The French said so.

CNN(and others) really dances around the story. They a quick to accuse Aussies while reluctant to implicate the Arabs even thou it is obvious that the Arabs have committed acts of violence.

Yep, I understand it was Muslims rioting after the anti-Muslim rioting on Sunday. CNN owes it to its dwindling public to get its facts straight.

A little more insight into the RoPers mindset concerning women (from the Austrailian rape trial) AND THE REASON FOR AUSSIE BACKLASH.

Gang rapist blames culture

By Kim Arlington

A CONVICTED gang rapist has told a Sydney court he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl because he thought she was promiscuous and "had no right to say no".

The 27-year-old, identified only as MSK, said voices had commanded him to rape the girl, but also blamed cultural differences for the attack.

MSK, convicted of raping two girls aged 13 and 14, faced sentencing submissions today before NSW Supreme Court Justice Peter Hidden.

He is already serving a 22-year jail term for leading his three younger brothers in the gang rape of two more girls, aged 16 and 17.

All four attacks took place at the brothers' Ashfield home, in Sydney's inner-west, in June and July 2002.

The court was told the first rape, that of a 14-year-old girl known as T, took place four days after MSK arrived from Pakistan.

MSK took an oath on the Koran before telling the court his cultural background was partly to blame for his crimes.

T, who had visited his house with two female friends, was not wearing traditional Muslim dress, he said.

"She was not covering her face or wearing any headscarf," MSK said.

"Then she started drinking with us ... at one point she started touching my leg."

MSK agreed T had not consented to sex but said: "I go ahead with it because ... I believe that she was promiscuous".

"I believed at the time I committed this offence that she had no right to say no," he said.

"I believed I'm not doing anything wrong."

T had told the trial that before she was raped by MSK and his younger brother MAK, who also was convicted, she was a virgin and had never kissed a boy.

MSK said he believed that his 13-year-old victim, known as C, also was promiscuous.

Now 18, T shook her head as she listened from the public gallery, supported by C's mother.

MSK had visited Australia nine times, including a 10-month stint when he worked as a security guard, before his arrest.

He told the court he now had a "better idea and understanding of Australian culture" after being exposed to the country's media.

"I understand now that what I did at the time was wrong and (that) what I believed was wrong," he said.

MSK also said he was drunk at the time of the offences, and was not taking the anti-psychotic medication prescribed for him by his father, a doctor.

"I was not taking my medication so I was under the influence of voices," he said.

"I was commanded by voices to go ahead."

Crown prosecutor Ken McKay told Justice Hidden that MSK's explanation for the offences kept changing.

"One minute it's the voices, the next minute it's a cultural issue," he said.

Mr McKay said the question of mental illness was raised only this year when MSK's applications to adjourn his trial were refused, but a jury found him fit to be tried.

MSK apologised to his victims for the first time today, but interrupted his apology to tell T: "Don't shake your head - I'm telling you something."

Outside court, T rejected his apology.

"It wasn't a sincere apology. I don't accept it at all," she said.

MSK will be sentenced next year.,5936,17513853%255E1702,00.html

As far as I've heard the window breaking and car breaking are Arab retaliation, so the headline is just wrong. CNN does it again.

MSM Rule #17

If a country protested the war in Iraq, paint all news concerning the country in a positive manner.

EXAMPLE: France didn't have riots by Muslims, there was an emotional outpouring by the disenfranchised poor.

If a country supported the Iraq War, paint all news concerning the country in a negative manner.

EXAMPLE: The undercurrent of pro-white, anti-arab prejudice is boiling over in Australia - a country divided over its government's complicity in the Iraqi conflict.

"Arab" is a race.

"Muslim" is a follower of Islam.

There are non-Arab Muslims and there are non-Muslim Arabs.

Not one word in the entire article about religion-driven Muslim gang-rapes of white Australian women.

No wonder people who get their news from CNN haven't the first clue as to what is really going on in the world.

Christian leaders also expressed outrage. "There is no place in our free, democratic and civil society for racist and mob violence," said Sydney's Anglican Archbishop Peter Jensen.

"We must look to the root causes of this social disharmony, seek authentic information about them and deal with those matters," he added.

Er, may I suggest that you consider...

"On Sunday a mob of 5,000 white men, many of them drunk,"

If CNN had DARED point out the race of any other group, there would be boycotts and condemnation.

I think it's funny that another left wing utopia is being ravaged by "youths".
