Obviously not, aren't they using such freedom to express themselves, unlike the countries they come from?
Yep. I'm starting to understand why the Russians/Syrian etc governments are such a bunch of hardarses; the only thing some of these numpties respond to is a whack to the head . That said, all the aforementioned governments also whack people on the head for having reasonable (for want of a better word) opinions .

Anyway, hopefully ASIO have retired back to the office with a big pile of long-weekend homework.

Yers Worrals; But with an open palm of the hand,a broomstick, a length of steel waterpipe or 125 gn of lead?

I have heard all above options mentioned quite seriously, some moreso, and the last two do tend to make me somewhat concerned, simply as to how far society in Australia has changed.

I don't want to sound despairing but I think it may be too late.

Trying to sort this lot out would be like trying to remove a tick while wearing ski-gloves.

I heard on the news today that there is concern over some 90 Islamists from Australia (including women)
having recently headed over to Syria to 'lend a hand' to the cause.

Out of an estimated 477 000 Australian Muslims (2.2% total population, admittedly from Wiki ) that's still not a bad batting average.
Islam in Australia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some Aussies went to the former Yugoslavia during the Croatian War, and before that others allegedly got involved in the Irish Troubles. It's not good, but nor is it new.
Shitbags are shitbags. Whatever the claimed Cause they're still whinging PITAs whinging about the same teenaged 'you don't Understand' angst. Whatever our beliefs and ethnicity most of us grow out of this type of thinking by our early twenties, but there's always the residual minority of privileged slow learners left carping about being misunderstood while living off their parents' goodwill.
Every now and again I (partly) agree with Mark Latham.
In my time dealing with them in Western Sydney, Arabic-Muslim community leaders were different to other ethnic representatives, including Muslims from the non-Arab world. They had a lot of gripes and spent a lot of time trying to milk the system of government for material gain. They lacked a strong work ethic and commitment to private enterprise.
Not surprisingly, in the second and third generations, this group has produced a significant number of indolent, disaffected young men who find jihadism appealing.
As a longer-term project, the Abbott government can improve our national security by cleaning out the problem of Arabic-Muslim welfare dependency in the western suburbs of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Young Islamists should be heading off to work each morning instead of sitting around smoke-filled lounges whingeing about Western culture.

It is because they are A, bought up with a huge sense of entitlement and B a huge chip on their shoulder.

This brings the attitude, I won't everything, for nothing and I want it now?

Saddam deserved the death penalty for several reasons and you know it. If you want the huggy fluffie reason, gassing how many Kurds again, a culture that is far from extremism.

Suppressing and murdering Shiites, a culture that makes up the vast majority of Iraqi, and the majority of which are fairly benign by their standards.

The extremists you talk of are his fellow Sunni's who are cracking the sh!ts at not holding power. The extremists you speak of are taking advantage of our western weakness.

Its amazing how people who usuall sprout about all good things left can have so much disdain and hatred towards the Shites.

Just a bit of perspective I understand the main antagonists at Lakemba who were arrested were the anti Muslim redneck brigade.

Meanwhile the countdown to the Queensland election is getting interesting

Will a visit by Dum Dum put the nail in Campbell's coffin?

Not much point arresting the placard wavers, they don't want freedom it seems. More of a punishment to let them carry on walking the streets spreading thier message of love and peace.

Even if they were nicked by the police the terrified soft cock hand wringing judiciary would just let them off scot free anyway.

Yep.

Its called positive discrimination, we will absolutly discriminate against you white trash (Im white) for all the evils you have foisted upon us.

Another huggy fluffy concept bought in by lefty's when some uncomfortable facts arouse with their equality drives. Another words it wasn't working out like their Utopian plan envisaged.

All the security, laws and the police work won't make any difference if the softcock handwringing judiciary are so scared and/or PC that they just keep letting them go.

I see Labor MP Terri Butler has officially asked Dum Dum to prove he is not a dual citizen. He should quickly Knight himself why he still has time.

Hope springs eternal.

Ms Mellifont said the applicant’s sudden incarceration had “traumatised” his family and while their bank accounts had been frozen, his wife was forced to make ends meet through the generosity of others.
Like many other people remanded in custody. Anway, it didn't work.
Succarieh remains incarcerated at the Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre and did not front court for the hearing.
So is he Sir Prince Phillip or Prince Sir Phillip ??
Either way he's not an Australian citizen; I thought the awards were for Aussies? Kooky... even the right wing commentators are a bit confused.

Considering Rudd/Gillard/Abbott, I am reminded of Douglas Adams' plot line of the President of the Universe being chosen solely as an extravagant distraction to take attention away from those who are really running things.

Meanwhile, on the local front, the President of ALP(NT) and Secretary of Local Voice NT has reportedly shot through to fight with the Kurds in Syria.

There are rumours circulating that he is also linked to a major criminal investigation; but this is not running in the media.

It does beg the question whether "going off to fight in Syria" will become the modern version of the "parking your car at the beach and leaving clothes on the sand" routine.

Good lord! And I thought Queensland produced some kooky pollies.

Too true. WRT Rudd and Abbott, I'd settle for PM who doesn't display clear personality disorder traits. Gillard was just cheefully incompetent, but Latham was a near miss...

Anyway, in Queensland Sportsbet is offering $6 for an ALP victory versus $1.10 for the LNP. They're also backing Newman in Ashgrove by a slim majority (2.00 to 1.75) and their shortest odds are on the LNP losing 25 seats. This conflicts with the 'official' polls which are predicting the election as too close to call (though a week's a long time in state politics). IIRC Sportsbet has been more accurate than the official polls in recent years.
Next Saturday should be interesting.
