Kevin Rudd Offends Muslims - US Needs This
http://www.littlegreenfootballs2.com/tag/kevin-rudd/ ^

Posted on 04/27/2009 12:24:19 PM PDT by 4rpb

Whole world Needs A Leader Like This!

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd - Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..

Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote:

'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. '

'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'

'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language.. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'

'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'

'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'

'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'

'If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.'

Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

This just in: President Hussein Obama will ask all Christians who do not want to live under Islamic Sharia law to get out of the United States, all 57 of them.

It’s time for us to take the same stand. This came from a damm liberal. We have zero in the WH and we don’t know definitively if he’s American or Christian! Wake up America and listen to RUDD. (I never I thought I’d be saying that of Rudd but I gotta hand it to him!)

Can you possibly imagine how the AMERICAN MEDIA would explode if any AMERICAN stood up in public and uttered these words? I re-read this post, just substituting the word AMERICAN with the name of AUSTRALIA and a beat of JOY came to my heart.
These words, by a man on the other side of the world, perfectly reflect the thoughts and ideals that created OUR country.
Anyone have an idea as to how we could entice his moving to our country?

A comment at end of article:

Too good to be true

The first part of the message suggests that Prime Minister Howard (Rudd in later versions) told Muslims who wished to live under Islamic Sharia law that they should get out of Australia. This is partly true in the sense that a high profile Australian political leader did make comments suggesting that Islamic extremists who desired to turn Australia into an Islamic state should leave and that Howard condoned such strongly worded rhetoric. However, it was in fact then Federal Treasurer Peter Costello who actually uttered the comments.

Kevin Rudd is a centrist imho. He’s closer to Tony Blair than Obama. He’s not hyperpartisan. Still surprised that Kevin Rudd said this

Sad to say, if only and American President had said this!

We would then be on the road to recovery, the world might not like us but they would respect us for standing up and
saying “This is what we believe.”

Thought so but was hopeful.
We’re getting dragged down the ‘moral isolation’ tactic by the extremists.
We should take a stand now.
Label the Islamic extremists the scum of the earth that they are.

About three years ago I remember when he did. He said Muslims should “clear off” if living in a non-sharia country didn’t suit them
