LETTER: 'Islamic extremists have no place in Australia'

MY LETTER is not aimed at the law abiding Muslims living in Australia.

They will possibly have to suffer the fall-out from the actions of some of their countrymen.

My concern is about the increasing number of fanatics and Jihadists we have allowed into our country.

Every country they settle in, these hot heads cause trouble.

Even to the extent of destroying Jewish shops and synagogues in those countries.

Anti-Jewish rallies all around the world and now we have them in Australia.

Recently on the news we saw big demonstrations down South by Muslim extremists.

They burnt our Australian flag right there on Australian soil.

Yells of death to Australians were heard.

I was so angry, yet it appears I must have been the only Aussie to be upset by their actions.

Not one word of condemnation from anyone.

They also demanded we get rid of Israelis living in Australia.

It seems to me that Israelis living here are not causing us any problems, so why should they have to leave.

Another protest regarding Gaza had Australians also chanting anti Israeli slogans.

Islamic hatred is spreading throughout our country and Aussies are now joining in.

Recently, Jews also held a peaceful demonstration at the same time as the Islamic one, they tried to give their side of the conflict but it fell on deaf ears.

It all shows a lack of respect and gratitude towards Australia.

They say they come here for safety and freedom.

Therefore, all the hate and turmoil they came here to avoid should be left behind.
