THE Australian Greens have described as "despicable'' a suggestion that Australia needs to have a serious discussion about the growth of its Muslim population. At least one Liberal frontbencher has distanced the party from the views of the last immigration minister in the previous Howard government, Kevin Andrews.
Mr Andrews says the issue of a growing Muslim population is a topic that has to be discussed.
"To have a concentration of one ethnic or one particular group that remains in an enclave for a long period of time is not good,'' the Liberal backbencher told Macquarie Radio Network today.

Some aged, but still active professors at my college staged a 60’s-style “teach-in” about the war in Iraq a couple of years ago. An argument they repeated over and over was that Western democracy was an unnatural governmental form to Middle East/Muslim culture and constituted a new chapter in Cultural Imperialism. I wanted to ask, given that premise, “then why are we letting them into this country?” But I knew I would probably just be accused of racism, xenophobia, or somthing.
These are dangerous times, and western societies can no longer afford delusional leftist idiots. They will collaborate with those who wish to destroy us. For some sick reason it’s how they validate themselves.

When you suggest debate on the muslim issue, it is already too late.
Asking obvious questions to academics is a ‘verbal attack’ in their book. Academics are open minded until they are challenged beyond their ability to respond. Then they turn nasty.
