Plz ignore, had sadly ignored Kath regards the contexting before writing this mail. However if we see fierce 2 edged nationalist characters in India, who knows when we have a Pm out of them, this politics might have not spared Australia as well, and Australians could be as susseptable as millions of Indians who albeit educated have strange and varied value systems. So with economy on a downturn, it is quite possible that Emotions of security were aroused in personal politics, if not in capacity of  a Primer.

The deputy PM said Indians were welcome. Sad they speak in 2 voices. Sad they discriminate, worse the people of Aussie get aroused by such false claims of patriotism and targetting racial minorities. No one complained of ur Constitution, bad show of power to ones who need ur protection, MR Rudd, only if Aussies had brains to see this!

Prime Minister  Kevin  Rudd  - Australia 

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.. 

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. ' 

'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.' 

'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,  'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'

'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, WE will find the  courage to start speaking and voicing the same  truths.  

If  you agree please SEND THIS ON  and  ON to as many people as you know
