    The Muslims Chob & I know in Kamala wouldn't be involved in demonstrations, nor those here in CM. It will be some fundamentalist creeps from the deep south who will be organising this and have young idealists bussed in. Lets hope they left weapons at home or it could get nasty.

    I have a very high tolerance to difference cultures, religions, ways of thinking, etc, but watching this unfold is friggin scary. So, a few idiots make a slanderous film (apparently - not seen it) which justifies thousands of violent acts around the world, including killings. I just don't get it. I appreciate that it is not really about the film, but cannot believe how people justify such violent behaviour based on what an irrelevant group of individuals say or act out via a film. By the way, this is a comment about the collective action of various people under the banner of religion, as opposed to a comment about people of that faith more generally.

    Watched part of the Sydney muslim community media conference today. They are down playing what happened in Sydney, which is understandable given that they are trying to restore calm. However, I think they lose credibility by basically saying only "a handful" of idiots. Unreal. A sh!t load of police to deal with "a handful" of idiots.

    Lucky Mel Gibson leaves his rants for the catholics and jews, or all of us Ozzies would be in trouble.

    No one could have said it any better!

    Peter FitzSimons puts things in perspective on the nutter Islamists who think it is ok to cause violence and mayhem over a stupid Youtube video. Muslims really are humourless fucks, perhaps even as bad as socialists.

    HAVE we Sydney-siders got this straight?
    Because on the other side of the Pacific, somewhere in California, some loser has thrown together some kind of amateur internet video insulting your particular god, you think it justifiable to:
    •Take over the Sydney CBD.
    •Cause willful damage to property.
    •Throw rocks at police officers who are doing nothing more than their duty.
    •Hold up such ludicrous signs as “Behead all those who insult the prophet.”
    We have to ask: Do you have the first clue as to the ramifications of your actions? Do you not understand that the net result of such irresponsible, appalling action is to give ample fuel to every racist in the country to reinforce every bad stereotype they have ever had of you, and that will affect badly the hundreds of thousands of other peaceful and law-abiding Islamic Australians?
    In short, WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?!
    Get this straight, and quickly: some of you may be from countries where this kind of thing is acceptable. But it is NOT acceptable in this country.
    In this country you are free to worship whatever god you damn well please. Others are free to worship their gods.
    And I am free to say it is all nonsense over imaginary friends.
    But you are not free to create the mayhem you did yesterday, simply because you don’t like a freaking video!
    Racists have said for years, “If you don’t like the way we do things here, go back to where you came from.” The net result of your actions yesterday is that – for those people specifically disgracing themselves in the CBD yesterday, not the vast bulk of Islamic Australians – much of the country now feels the same.

    Society has a thin veneer...

    So what does make people behave this way? Why would a normal human being react like this? Probably because normal human beings don't react like this unless they want to... it's a smokescreen for far deeper tensions. The video is almost irrelevant.
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team
