The feedback from Australians on Internet sites tell a different story. While there are many comments disgusted over the story of white anti-Arab racism, here are some telling comments from others, that this is a reaction to years of harrassment by all-male Arab gangs. As is the case with young Arab Muslims throughout the West, teenage girls are generally forbidden to go out, leaving separatist gangs of predatory Arab Muslim males with highly misogynist attitudes.
-I'm an Australian with Chinese heritage. I think what happened at Cronulla is shameful and un-Australian. I'm proudly singing "We are Australian" because that is what Australia is and we should be proud of it. On the other hand, I also urge the Muslim community to behave better as their attitude recently such as preaching violence and jihad, praising Osama bin Laden, making awful comments about women wearing mini skirts, etc has sparked tension with other communities. We are a very heterogenous society and each community should respect each other." Muslim = bad attitude. Just ask the French.
-While the scenes were tragic, anyone that says they are surprised the events is kidding themselves. Racial tensions are reaching a boiling point in Australia! Mainstream Australia is allowing those new to the country to dictate how they live. Watching our way of life changing is a tragedy, whether it be gang violence or political correctness it is all so very wrong. Where has commonsense gone?
-The Cronulla uprising was the culmination of the community saying "enough is enough" to the fear and intimidation tactics used for years by young "men" of middle eastern appearance. It is sad that the protest deteriorated in the manner in which it did but let's not forget this would not have happened if these youths embraced our culture and values in the first place.
-They deserve it. I'm sick of being racially targeted by immigrants because I'm Australian. It's about time the shoe was on the other foot and they experience what it is to be intimidated and hurt by a gang.
-It not un-Australian at all, it's mates sticking up for mates which is very Australian. What's un-Australian is groups of males harassing others for entertainment and bashing volunteers. Race is the easy excuse, however if they did not provoke the locals with their unsocial behavior it would never have occurred. I do not condone the actions of the mob on Sunday, but I do understand it.
-After waiting 10 to 12 years for the Government and police to do something its good to see the people standing up for what's right.
-I work at Cronulla and everyday gangs come off the train and head towards the beach insulting anyone in sight along the way. Whilst I don't support the action that happened yesterday, I understand the frustration of people in the Shire having to put up with this disgusting behaviour on a daily basis. The politicians need to address this situation now before we have more scenes like yesterday. This has been building for many years and last week's attack on the lifesavers was the straw that broke the camel's back. Our children have been targeted by these gangs whilst they are doing nippers and subjected to language that is very unacceptable in any part of the world.
-Lets face it. Aussies have had enough. We all know those responsible for the bashing of the lifesavers will only get a slap on the wrist. Our whole Aussie way of life is being eroded by ethnic groups and the "typical" Aussie is fighting back! What did the do-gooders and the Government expect? It was only a matter of time...
-I believe the riots are indicative of the frustration Aussies have felt over the years of the Government's soft touch on these minority groups who choose to live in our great country but choose not to abide by its laws and cultural expectations. Good on the Aussies for finally fighting back.
-As an Australian I did find the riot quiet disheartening as we are usually a county that bands together for the good of it. I think it is a shame that this has happened but when you look around and find that we as Aussies are forced to accept every other nationalities special religious days but we are supposed to give ours up because it will upset the minority and is offensive. At daycare some are forgoing singing Christmas carols because it appears racist, the Easter Bunny is not acceptable. These people come to this country and should be allowed to celebrate their festivals and we should be allowed to celebrate ours as well without any repercussions from the many other races that have "chosen" to live here. If they don't like it, then they are free to leave and go back to where they came from. We are becoming a country that is too scared to upset others.
-Rather than thoughtlessly slamming these people who have perpetrated the violence, one should look to the cause and the reasons behind it. Australians are not a race of people who are quick to turn to violence, nor are they are race of people who resort to mobs when emotions run high. What they are doing to reacting to the enforced integration of too many mixed races, and being forced to submit to foreign ways and cultures. No Christmas lights because it might offend others? Well, we're offended that we don't have our Christmas lights, but does that matter? That's where the frustration and the anger is coming from - over-integration and enforced change to us because someone else has come to this, our home.
-The riots are bad I agree, but it needs to be stated they were a REACTION to a previous attack on locals at the beach by the people targeted in the riots. If they hadn't done that, then the riots wouldn't have occurred. Violence causes more violence. If police actually did something to remove society of trouble makers, things like this would not occur. This country is sinking.
-How often do we hear about ethnic gangs causing trouble, the only thing is this time someone has decided to fight back. I certainly do not condone acts of violence and think it's terrible that it has come to this but you can see exactly what these people are standing up for. They are sick of being scared.
-I'm an Australian with Chinese heritage. I think what happened at Cronulla is shameful and un-Australian. I'm proudly singing "We are Australian" because that is what Australia is and we should be proud of it. On the other hand, I also urge the Muslim community to behave better as their attitude recently such as preaching violence and jihad, praising Osama bin Laden, making awful comments about women wearing mini skirts, etc has sparked tension with other communities. We are a very heterogenous society and each community should respect each other.
-This problem has been brewing for months if not years whilst various Premiers and Police Commissioners have buried their heads in the sand of political correctness and refused to even identify by nationality and religion the gangs who have been terrorising Cronulla (and other suburbs).
-Living in Queensland and observing via the media, I can understand the level of concern when it appears these Arab-Australians just seem to want to replicate the traditions of their homelands. Their attitude is abhorrent to the average Australian and they perpetuate their snub to society by setting out to damage cars etc.
-Bashing lifeguards is unAustralian. [Complaint against Aabs] Calling beachgoers whores is unAustralian. [Complaint against Aabs] Trashing cars is unAustralian. [Complaint against Aabs] Unfocused mob mentality is unAustralian. [Complaint against native Australians]

Evidence of the "Australian Intifada"
This frequently-updated post is similar to my controversial Evidence the "Paris Riots" Are Actually the "French Intifada."
One of the ways the blogosphere is the perfect illustration of Hayek's theory of "spontaneous generation" is tha
I live in America, but I am glad that the australians are waking up to the danger of thier muslim population. If the australians do not fight back and resist the muslim violence they will soon be subjected to the islamic law. We cannot allow muslims to commit violence unchecked, the australian people must take it on themselves to put down the muslim rioting.
Well put Dennis. Crocodile Dundee is indeed racist, against Lebanese and indigenous peoples in particular. I don't know if it's all the alcohol, or the deviant bloodlines (descent from the criminal dregs of British society), the **** climate, or what. In direct response to Ben, I would like to point out what must be the shocking lack of violence perpetrated by members of the US Muslim community. And then "pan-European gangs" WHAT?! No wonder the Lebanese are rampaging. You people are annoying! They should send Hezbollah against you.
I would not usually condon riots or attacks on any one group or race, but "enough is enough". I live,work i and am trying to raise a family in the st george area, and since i went to school i have been bullied by the "middle easterners" . at school i was bashed at a local girls school for not celabrating ramadarm,(by eating my lunch during this time) and while shopping I get trollies run into me as they laugh, a friend gang raped by men of this culture and hearing young "midle easterns" yelling F@@ off Aussies, this is our country now wile in the streets. Also just trying to buy a christmas tree in our area is becomming an issue... Shops have limited there xmas supplies because they have gotton robbed and shops destroyed as "locals" were offended by the xmas celebrations in stores. If this is not verging RIDICULIOUS what is!!
I see things like this...You have come to this beuitiful country for a life your own cant provide...that's great..you are welcome with open arms....but like if we were to live in there countries, they need to not celibrate our traditions if they are conflicting with the ones they know...but as we let them celibrate there cultural beliefs, we should be free to celibrate ours with out put down or fear. If they come to our country they should be able to speak the basics of our language, even if they want to keep there language alive in there homes....this is great..keep your culture alive but embrase ours also wile your hear. If you come here for peace, why are they being violent towards us and bringing there anger and hate here? and if our country is so bad, I have to ask why are you hear? if you would be happier else were, then go were you are happy insted of being misrable here and making everyone else misrable too. I have no problems with sharing the beuitiful way of life we have and our beuitiful country with other cultures who want to be here, who love this land, and way of life, but we are not holding you hostage, if you are un happy, then leave..it's simple really.
our goverment should not be appoligising to the "middle easterns" who reside in australia who started this up rawl over 20 years ago for our retaliation, but simply saying you stop your racest ways towards our people or be deported!! we are beig called RACESTS for haivg enough and forced to oppiligise, wile yet again they are protected and given a slap on the wrist.THEY have been racest to us in our home land...yet we continue to be politically correct and try to please everyone..... if we were to carry on this way in any middle eastern country we would end up shot, or at min bought back to australia with a ban from ever returning! Right now i am discusted with the goverments responce....I am scared for my self, my husband and my daughter. Australia is no longer a peaceful place, nor safe place...espesherly in sydney!! It is dangerious and the last place anyone would want to raise a family. I want to teach my daughter not to discriminate and love each person for who they are not there skin colour, or for there accent, but this is hard to do, when she is only 2 and getting spat on in the shopping centre for having blond hair and blue eyes! doesn't matter what i tell her, as the community is teaching her something else all togeather, how can i teach her respect, when she is shown non based on her appeaence?
What a world we live in today!!
I live in the United States and see the news from your country. I agree with you on a lot of your comments. We have many Muslims living in the United States. I agree if you do not like it in the country your have moved to or you feel you are not being treated fairly then leave. I feel more countrys should offer that to unruley people. I would bet if given a choice of going back to the middle east or staying the US or Australia, they would not go back to the middle east. We need to get tough on these kids or young adults. It is one thing to protest but to rape, hurt people or distroy property is not acceptable. We have to be politically correct about Christmas, Not Me , The Holidays are not the Holidays, they are Christmas an New Years holidays. I again agree with you, if a person moves to Saudi they follow there rules or they are jailed. If you move to the US or Australia they have to follow there rolls not there homeland rules. I often wonder if the whole riot thing is resentment about someone having a better life, they can never have or cannot achive. Good luck.
For once these muslims have a taste of their own medicine of hate. While they have are playing the 'victim ', they percecuted people of other race and faith. They condenm other religion and proclaim that Islam is the only true religion. You better believe them or else they will bomb your people fro disagreement. If you want to be a terrorist, the best guide book you can find is the Koran. It teaches you to hate and kill disbelievers and the reward is a palace in heaven and 70 virgins. What a load of crap these asshole have created for their people. Stand up for your rights and never let these ******** take over your land.
We have read islam and its a religion of hate and war. There is no other islam but that. you can say what you want be it is obvious that mohammond married for money and brainwashed his followers. mohammond killed hundreds, but the muslims after him have killed hundred of thousands in the name of islam.
Thanks for linking and posting your trackback. I appreciate all the news and find it informative. IRIS blog serves a great purpose. Bloggin' Outloud is a tad bit less politically savvy. So I like the balance. Lyn
I don't think fighting violence with violence is the answer, it just makes australians look like bigots from an international perspective. If you are an australian and you think that bashing someone based on thier racial apperance is justified for WHATEVER reason then how is your behaviour any better then those idiot middle eastern gangs?
it's not about westerners vs muslims. it's about integrating into a society that gave you the privilege to live among them. the least you can do is be grateful and assimilate into their culture of go back to where you came from. it's not fair for locals to adjust to the immigrants they accept. it should be the other way around. our world is getting too politically correct for our own good.
Hahaha stupid Aussie drunken retards. I never knew Crocodile Dundee was a racist to boot. "Oi Oi, lets go beat up our immigrants and have the world think less of us than they already do!" I think you Australians should come to Canada sometime and see how actually civilized people deal with racial differences.
you cant half tell a zionist made this blog..always trying to stir trouble while hiding in the background .first things first theres half a million muslims in australia right now and by the way there breeding theres gonna be alot more very quickly and none of your anglo convicts can do a god damn thing about it so keep writing your little blogs behind your computer screans you keyboard warriors ,just like you stole this country from the aboriginals its getting stolen from you by imigrants you stupid yobos deserve everything you get your all cowards and what was once your country is now gone cock heads..also another thing ive been seeing is a number of dumb skips putting stickers on there cars these days saying 'australia love it or leave it' and 'be true blue or piss off' I just love confronting these chickens when i see there cars and they always back down and dont know what to say when i start telling them off ..loool if your too chicken to fight back why put a stupid sticker on in the first place??do you think where gonna take it?? lol you idiots we know your all cowards we own you now!
