    Opened the paper today.

    Sydney has descended into race riots.

    5000 drunken youths took to roaming to streets of Cronulla Beach, attacking those of Middle Eastern descent. And on trains. And an ambulance.

    So it seems a group of young Middle Eastern men took to a different part of the eastern suburbs, burning and smashn cars.

    It concerns me how many Australians seem to be obsessed by the notion that all Muslims (and, seemingly by proxy, all of the Middle Eastern population) are busy plotting to overthrow our society, pillage our villages and rape our women.

    Seems odd, seeing how not a single life has yet been taken on Australian soil by terrorism, compared to 1,700 people dying on roads each year.
