Kevin Rudd: A Breathe of Fresh Air in the Stale World of Politics.


There is one person who has the backbone to express what many people in the West think. I received the following from a friend: 

‘It took a lot of courage for this man to speak what he had to say for the world to hear.  The retribution could be phenomenal, but at least he was willing to take a stand on his and Australia’s beliefs. Prime Minister of Australia,  Kevin Rudd: 

 ” 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.” 

I wrote a letter to all leading MPs expressing my previous concern, two of whom replied with an answer I could only presume was in English. Neither could answer my questions and dressed up their attempt in the guise of political talk.  Why is it that when I travel to Muslim countries, I have to adorn the Muslim veil and am not permitted to freely practice my Christian faith, but a Muslim person can stand up in a CATHOLIC school and demand the crucifix taken down and replaced by a picture of the Prophet Mohammad? 

I could not find any evidence to corroborate this story. True or not, Clegg; Cameron; Brown take note: Kevin Rudd? Now, he is a man whom I would be proud to vote for…
