It’s hard to deny that multiculturalism is a rich part of Australia’s history. From the early Chinese and Afghans to later the Greeks, Italians and Asians, each has called Australia home in their own way and it was only natural they tended to stick together, it was a security thing... much like we search out Aussies when we travel to a strange land. Nothing wrong with that! China Town, Little Italy and Greece have much to offer in culinary delights and cultures.
It was Friday night shopping and, along with all the usual items, I made sure of my Bega Cheese, Vegemite and my Tassal smoked salmon. When I arrived home I separated out all the items, including meat, that carried that little Islamic Halal logo. (Strangely there were a lot of different Islamic logos.)
According to a report in the Pakistan Daily Mail, Bosnian Grand Mufti, Mustafa Ceric (pictured) has urged the Muslim ummah [that means all Mussies] to conquer the world through the Halal certification movement.
She sure is a strange bird, but only one of a large mob of pink galahs who sit in trees or fly around all day squawking and doing nothing until... well until the farmer sows his seed... then it’s a free-for-all.

Well, I guess legislators will have to wake up soon and it might take an Islamic terrorist attack on their own damned Legislative Assemblies where legislators’ own lives are at risk before they take the Islamic curse seriously and act to protect their constituents. Is Canberra at risk? You bet your bloody booty it is.
Malcolm Fraser I knew well, he was basically a shy bushie and certainly no redneck determined to trash Constitutional precedents. He more than anyone realised at the time that Whitlam, one way or another, should go with all but the hard Left at Fairfax and the ABC expressing relief at the dismissal.
I used to say that I would go to Margie’s funeral to pay my respects but I would go to Gough’s funeral to make sure he was dead. Of course that is quite uncalled for and in extremely bad taste now that he has gone.
A female fruit picker in Pakistan last week lost her appeal against a death sentence for blasphemy. Asia Bibi had taken a drink of water from a well during the heat of the day but had inadvertently used a cup that was reserved for Muslim women.
There is little sympathy for the Pakistani who fingered Osama Bin Laden in return for a $US25 million bounty. He still sits rotting in a Pakistani jail with no hope of ever seeing day light, let alone his reward.
Has Woolworths just given Aussies the best reason yet to shop elsewhere? An Aussie flag with the words “Love it or leave” is a statement directed at those in the Islamic community who say we are unworthy hosts and want us liquidated, but it is also directed at anyone who feels the same way regardless of race.
He needs you to cuddle him but you can’t. He doesn’t understand that ‘dead’ means gone forever and why only people wearing white rain coats and masks without smiles dare approach him... this is the real tragedy of Ebola.
Countries including Israel and many Arab States have placed travel bans on people departing from West African countries stricken with the Ebola virus. Australia and the US have so far wisely decided against this kneejerk reaction to what threatens to become an international crisis.
