Anger over anti-immigration Railcorp rant
January 30, 2008, news.com.au:
NSW Railcorp's ethnically-diverse work force has been rocked by a racist email allegedly circulated from the account of a senior manager in an apparent attempt to stoke division on Australia Day.Muslim Councillor Tells Rotterdammer: 'Shut Up, Minority':
An inflammatory email was sent from the account of former policeman David Carroll, second in command of RailCorp's 800-strong security division.
The email entitled "Australia - The Right To Leave" calls on immigrants who do not wish to adopt an English-speaking, Anglo-Christian lifestyle to pack their bags and leave Australia.
"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," the email begins. "We speak 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.
"We are happy with our culture and we have no desire to change and we really don't care how you did things where you came from.
"This is our country, our land, our lifestyle and we will allow every opportunity to enjoy all this.
"But once you are done complaining, whining and griping about our flag, our pledge, our national motto, our way of life, I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great Australian freedom. If you are not happy here then move.
"We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country you accepted."
Mr Carroll has been suspended ...
Jihad Watch, 17/1/08:
Labour (PvdA) politician Bouchra Ismaili has reviled a citizen of Rotterdam in an e-mail. The man was told that as a member of the white minority in his district, he should not complain about the Islamic organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir.The eyes are the window to the soul ...
Ismaili, who has Moroccan nationality, is a council member for PvdA in the Rotterdam district council of Charlois. "You are the immigrants here!!!", she wrote to the white man who drew her attention by e-mail to statements by the controversial Muslim organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir. Ismali also wrote in her e-mail reply to the man: 'Drop dead,' and 'convert to Islam,' Algemeen Dagblad reported yesterday ...
Jos Parbleu, the man that received the e-mail from Ismaili, sent hundreds of local politicians an e-mail with statements by Okay Pala of Hizb ut-Tahrir. He is concerned about the rise of this movement, which is monitored by the AIVD secret service. The e-mail from Ismaili that he got back "shows the frightfully disastrous situation in which our country has landed!", he said in the newspaper.
Shield of Achilles:
So what prompted the angry email in the first place? Jos Parbleu sent an email to Ms. Ismaili and hundreds of others about two worrisome quotes by Okay Pala, the local leader of the radically Islamist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir, and published in the Turkish-Dutch "De Telegraaf" (more on this at Islam in Europe). Mr. Pala had said: "We reject freedom of speech, because we reject democracy," and "What you need is a heavy bomb attack".See also: Second Muslim politician in Netherlands unmasked as jihad supporter
But instead of attacking Mr. Pala or those quotes, she went after Mr. Parbleu for telling us about it!
