Received by the Muslim Women’s Association
We managed to decipher the vitriolic scrawl. We are guessing a half-educated older female who has probably never seen, met or spoken to a Muslim in her sad hate-filled little life.
Do you now wonder why Australians hate Muslims and there for (sic) the whole of Islam.
Actually not true. 34% seem inclined that way, which tells us that 34% of those surveyed exist on a diet of Murdoch rags and enjoy their own ignorance.
And the cericature (sic) was right with the pistol drawn person covered with the Burka; how would we know what you carry under this hidious (sic) outfit.
Well it may interest you to know that the person whose image was misused is actually a female police officer who was assassinated by the Taliban. Interesting that the ratbags want to insult her memory and that of other Afghan female police officers killed in the line of duty. Says a lot about these hate groups and their low-rent supporters.
When do you people learn that if you want to be accepted you have to live like Australians at least on the outside. What ever you’d like to do behind closed doors is your business.
Guess what lady, these Muslims you hate so much are just as Australian as you are. Probably more so – they are not writing diatribes of hate to people. They are getting on with their lives, working, studying, running businesses and raising their kids.
That’s what normal Australians do.
And until you do that we will always despise you and your outfits actions and behaviour.
Who is “we”? Certainly not us or any other normal person.
And another good deed was done when the police shot this animal displaying the black flag.
The coroner is deliberating this case at the moment but maybe the incident may not have been what you seem to think it was.
Police in all jurisdictions are trained to use lethal force only as a last resort. So they won’t be shooting suspects just to make you racists and bigots happy.
Sometimes we wonder why Australia let this ANIMALS into our country. They can not be humans when they behead someone for fun.
Care to tell us (and the police) who has been beheaded by any terrorist suspect in Australia?
As far as we are concerned every one does behave in this manner should be send where they came from. We only feel sorry for the small minority who behave, dress and live like Australians.
Australian citizens have the right to live in this country and dress as they please.
And did you ask permission of the First Nations before your family plonked themselves on this continent?
By the way do you see any other countries display their national outfit or costume here in Australia? Do you see Austrians wear their Lederhosen or Russians wear their Cossak (sic) hat and gear?
Women from the subcontinent often wear saris or the salwar kameez as everyday dress. Sikh men often wear turbans. Observant Jewish men may wear kippot and even tefilin. Etc. etc.
Austrians do wear Lederhosen for folkloric festivals and the like.
And your ignorance is showing like a big red light bulb. Not all Russians are Cossacks. Not all Cossacks are Russian.
And as Harlan Ellison so aptly said:
“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”
And this is YOU
Politicians and media let us down in fight to curb rising Islamophobia
