Found on Tim Blair’s blog:
Richard Pratt, arrived in Australia aged 4, as a poor Jewish immigrant. He died as one of the country’s wealthiest men, a philanthropist and an employer of thousands of people.
There wasÂ anotherÂ group, which immigrated to Australia in the 1980s.
Their story was a bit different.Â
Using data from the 2001 Census,Â this paperÂ finds that Lebanese Muslim households are large and much more likely to be poor than are all households, or than Lebanese Christian households. It also finds that Lebanese Muslim men have low levels of education, relatively high levels of unemployment, and a very high tendency not to be in paid work.
And then there were the gang-rapists, criminals and murderers.
Quite a contrast in immigration stories… Quite a contrast indeed.
