Australian's reply to "racist" attacks in Sydney
"Dec 14, 2005Sydney 'race riots' actually attacks on criminals
THERE have been reports in the Australian media about race riots in Sydney. In fact, the riots are not race riots but attacks on criminals.
The situation has been brought about by the deterioration in law enforcement in recent years. Australian state governments, which run the police, have cut the number of police patrol officers, and have instructed them not to respond immediately to crimes like they used to do. Also, patrol officers have been instructed not to prosecute criminals unless they see the crime taking place, which they never do since they generally turn up two hours later.
The result is a paradise for criminals. Large areas of Australian cities have become no-go zones. Parents won't let their children play outdoors. With the recent hot weather, law-abiding mainstream Australians would like to use the beaches, but are prevented by criminal gangs.
In Cronulla, the criminals are mostly of Lebanese origin. In the circumstances, it is reasonable for people to assume that any person of Lebanese appearance is a criminal and treat them accordingly. The police have not clamped down on Lebanese criminals, so the public are understandably taking the law into their own hands.
Most criminals in Australia are from ethnic minority groups, mainly the Irish 25 per cent of the population. This is hardly surprising since these groups send their children to schools which actively encourage crime.
For example, at Irish Catholic schools in Australia they teach: 'Which is better, for your family to die of starvation, or to steal a loaf of bread? Obviously, to steal a loaf of bread.'
In contrast, at government schools in Singapore, you teach that it is better for your family to die of starvation than to steal anything.
Irish-Australians are behind the push for the introduction of so-called 'human rights' into South-east Asia. Asians call these so-called rights 'Western values'. In fact they are Irish values, and most Australians reject them. The ideas Asean leaders call 'Asian values' are supported by the vast majority of Australians.
Most Australians would like to have laws like you have in Singapore, but most of our politicians are Irish. The only area where mainstream Australians would disagree with Singapore policies is that we support trial by jury. Things like the Holocaust and the Gulag Archipelago don't happen in countries where there is a right to trial by jury.
Our student association would like to see greater involvement between Australia and Asean countries. But Asean governments should make such involvement dependent on Australia phasing out Irish values. Clearly, the idea that Irish values are superior to Chinese values or Malay values or English values is wrong.

Just wondering whether what he says about Singapore is true. Would you "teach that it is better for your family to die of starvation than to steal anything?"
