    I have said and thought for some time now, If I had no ties I would move to
    Australia in a heart beat.
    John Howard gets it!!

    Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to
    get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head
    off potential terror attacks.
    A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to
    Australia and her Queen at a special meeting with Prime Minister John
    Howard, he and his Ministers made it clear that extremists would face a
    crackdown. Treasurer Peter Costello, seen as heir apparent to Howard, hinted
    that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did
    not accept that Australia was a secular state, and its laws were made by
    parliament. “If those are not your values, if you want a country which has
    Sharia law or a theocratic state, then Australia is not for you”, he said on
    National Television.
    “I’d be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing
    people in Australia: one the Australian law and another Islamic law that is
    false. If you can’t agree with parliamentary law, independent courts,
    democracy, and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to
    another country, which practices it, perhaps, then, that’s a better option”,
    Costello said.

    Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave, he said
    those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to the other
    country. Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims
    who did not want to accept local values should “clear off. Basically people
    who don’t want to be Australians, and who don’t want, to live by Australian
    values and understand them, well then, they can basically clear off”, he
    Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he
    supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques.
    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.”
    “However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the ‘politically
    correct’ crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism
    was offending others. I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge
    against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia.”
    “However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our
    country, and apparently some born here, need to understand.” “This idea of
    Australia being a multi-cultural community has served only to dilute our
    sovereignty and our national identity. And as Australians, we have our own
    culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle.”
    “This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and
    victories by millions of men and 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 appropriate to 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 and peaceful enjoyment with us.”
    “If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don’t like “A Fair Go”, then you
    should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet. We are
    happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don’t
    care how you did things where you came from. By all means, keep your
    culture, but do not force it on others.
    “This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you
    every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining,
    whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or
    Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great
    Australian freedom,
    “If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You
    asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.”

    Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, Canadian and American citizens
    will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths !
