Islam is not the biggest religion in the world, but with over 1.5 billion adherents it is in the top three. It does have a problem with
extremism, however, which was the audience targeted with this film clip. I have little doubt that it was TPTB that have orchestrated this whole
situation to turn us against each other as you put it.
Nevertheless, the behaviour displayed by those protestors is incompatible with the values and social norms of people living in Australia and should be
condemned. Individuals with mindsets and behaviour patterns such as these do not deserve the benefits and privileges that come with living in
Yes, it is essential to examine the cause-and-effect series of events, but let us not excuse behaviour that has no place in a civilised

My apologies, I should of wrote it's the fastest growing religion [from what i've read and heard], not the biggest. Thanks for the correction.
And yes, Islam does seem to have more extremists at this point in time. And in other points of time, other religions had more than their fair share of
extremists too. I guess the Crusades would prove this right ? And i noticed the all the outrage about the child holding the beheading sign, but when i
see footage of extremist Christian kids in the south of America holding signs saying "kill all fags", "kill the blacks and Jews", God hates
fags", "abortion is murder" etc, i see or hear little outrage or mainstream media coverage.
I believe the parents of the kids holding signs in both examples i gave, should be banned from ever having more children, as they clearly have zero
The behaviour of SOME of the protesters was inexcusable, as was some of the actions i saw from SOME of the police. Yet i was no more appalled by these
scenes then what i was by the scenes at Cronulla a few years ago, which was carried out mainly by white Australians [which i am classed as, for the
record], yet wasn't their behaviour what we class as "un-Australian" ?
Do any of the people involved at Cronulla recieve benefits or privileges for living in this country, when their behaviour was no better, and just as
There will always be a small number of trouble makers in every group, with nothing else in mind other than causing trouble, just as we had in these
recent protests, and just as we had in Cronulla.
If we look at from a bigger picture, we'll see that its been happening over and over and we'll realise that its hapening in circles and cycles and
we'll see the bigger picture. But when we look at these incidents with blinkers on, we only see and re-act to that one incident. And thats where the
media comes in to play their role of turning us against each other and wanting us to pick sides like its a game, well it IS actually a game for those
making the rules, but most of the players [society] don't realise they're being played, so the arguing sides keep on arguing because their team is
better then the other team, and it goes on and on !
Both sides seem to go down the same road over and over without realising it, which reminds me of a definition of insanity................
"To do the same thing over an over, but expect a different outcome each time !"
