LSM to the rescue:
The latest criticism of so called “multiculturalism” from various political leaders brought our main stream media into a damage control frenzy (just read those teary Christmas Island funeral stories).
And yes, it is all about Muslims (painted by the media as good, sometimes misunderstood individuals), who suffer terribly from the hands of bigoted Australians.
And all they do is just desperately try to fit into the society despite some insignificant cultural differences.
Oh, why people just can’t get along (and accept the burqa, wife beatings and FGM).
As a devout Muslim and second-generation Lebanese-Australian, Mohamad is a migrant success story, but as he readily concedes, he is not typical of the young men in his community.
In addition to crime and disadvantage, he has grown up experiencing the more everyday manifestations of racial intolerance – ridicule for a different-sounding name and a funny set of customs. “There is no doubting the hurdles we face, the problems,” the 21-year-old said yesterday. “So many of the boys I used to know were capable of so much more but they’re in prison, or sitting at home, or looking for a job, or on minimum wages because of the limitations put on them, by themselves and by the society.” (source)
Can you see how Drew Warne-Smith and Paul Cleary (authors of the quoted spittle) are sweating to make you forget Islam and feel compassionate for those misunderstood individuals?
By the way why it is Muslims who are driven into criminal activities because some bad Aussies ridicule their surnames but notÂ the Hindu, Chinese or Buddhists?
Are Muslims more psychologicallyÂ frail than the rest of humanity?
Of course bringing Keysar Trad into their storyÂ as a role model for the “disadvantaged” and misunderstood Muslim youths is a major fiasco.
It also exposes the intent and the forces behind this latest media spin.
Somebody has to pay the ferryman
Keysar Trad, president of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, said while it was important for Muslims to acknowledge the problems in their communities, those communities were filled with families committed to the country and the basic concern of trying to forge a better life. “We’ve worked hard to get rid of this idea of clash of civilisations. It’s a false construct. In Islam we are taught that societies progress through a meeting of different people.” (source)
“We’ve worked hard???
Get a job Keysar. Just get a job.
