The Ignorant Speak Out
I am an Arab Christian who has been living in Australia for three decades. I really feel sad of this hysteria against Moslems in this country. Our ancestors lived in peace and harmony with Moslems for centuries. Of course, there were some problems along the way, but these did not amount to progroms, massacres or religious annihilation.It's impossible to briefly summarise just how wrong this bleeding heart is. I suspect he's been watching that Hollywood touchy-feely lie-fest Kingdom of Heaven - that one pitting the barbarous, nasty, murdering Crusaders against the civilised, "why-can't-we-all-just-get-along" Muslims. I would point him to the early years of the Ottoman Empire and its actions in the Balkans; maybe also the dhimmi laws that maintained the "peace and harmony" our misguided charge mentions.
Anyway - I don't see how the actions of the authorities in this country constitute "pogroms, massacres or religious annihilation." Although which extremist group in our society preaches "pogroms, massacres [and] or religious annihilation", and seems likely to act on such exhortations? As for the authorities, far from perpetrating these events, they have prevented such atrocities taking place by their recent actions.
