Liz Geyer is a very proud Strayan, with some very probing questions.
Okay. Let’s start at the beginning.
“This one is for my fellow ANZAC’s. (sic)“
You’re not an ANZAC and nor is anyone else on Facebook. The last ANZAC passed away over a decade ago.
“How many Muslims have you seen singing our National Anthems?”
National anthems? Plural?
If you mean ‘Advance Australia Fair’, here’s one example.
For the most part, though, how do you tell? Perhaps you can get a crowd shot from a major sporting match where the anthem is played, and go through it and tell us which people in the crowd are Muslim and which are non-Muslim. And explain how you can discern this based on just looking at someone. Please.
“How many Muslims have you seen waving our flags or having our national icons painted on their faces?”
This kind of thing, you mean?
“How many Muslims have you seen attending ANZAC Day?”
How would you know what religion the people in the crowd were? Or, for that matter, in the parade itself?
In July 2013 there were 88 Muslims serving in the ADF, so it stands to reason that some of them might well have marched in the parade on ANZAC Day in the past, and may do so again this year.
“How many Muslims have you seen wearing a Poppy to commemorate the fallen?”
Quite a few, actually.
There are probably many who don’t, as well. Along with many non-Muslims who don’t.
“How many Muslims have you seen donating money or food to national emergencies or charities?”
Do you mean like when the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, part of the United Arab Emirates, donated $30 million to the state of Queensland to build cyclone shelters, such as this one at a high school in Yeppoon?
Or when the Muslim Charitable Foundation (MCF) donated pallets of gyprock to repair 50-60 flood damaged homes in Ipswich and, together with the Queensland Muslim Welfare Association, delivered two truckloads of clothing and linen to flood victims?
Perhaps when Islamic Relief collected sleeping bags for those who had lost their homes in bushfires, or when Lakemba Mosque raised $26,000 in a single Friday night for Brisbane flood victims?
Like that, Liz?
“If you answered none to all of those then you are correct.”
Well this is awkward. Let’s see if we can provide a quick correction:
If you answered none to all of those then you are
correct an ignoramus.
“They claim to be citizens like us, some were even born here, but, they demand more rights than us, more freedom than us, more allowance than us, more, more, more, more.”
“If we are all citizens as they claim, then why should they demand more, what right do they have to do so?”
“The difference is, they can act like us, but we ARE us.”
“We are the true ANZAC’s (sic), not them. No Islamist will be an ANZAC citizen.
Not then, not now, not EVER!”
A citizen of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps of WWI? lolwhut?
Liz, you are not an ANZAC. You’re just someone typing away on Facebook, trying to assume the voice of long dead soldiers to push your own views, which is pretty disgusting. You don’t speak for dead soldiers.
Seeing as you present yourself as such a parochial halfwit proud Australian citizen you should probably invest some time in actually understanding the military history of the country you claim to defend and the terms that relate to that history.
