    Racial Violence Shocks Australian City

    Racial violence erupts in Sydney

    Dec 11, 2005
    Angry crowds have singled out and bashed people of middle eastern appearance at Sydney's Cronulla beach as racial tension erupted into violence.

    And an ambulance called to the scene to treat five people injured in Sunday's violence has been attacked by a mob who shattered its windows.
    Meanwhile, police have been pelted with beer bottles, and their patrol cars stomped on, as the outnumbered officers struggled to maintain control.

    Witnesses saw officers using capsicum spray in a bid to quell those perpetrating the violence.

    NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Goodwin said police were forcing their way through the crowd, trying to prevent further attacks.

    He said a number of people had been assaulted but could not say exactly how many. However, an ambulance spokesman said at least five people had been injured.

    It was those people the ambulance was trying to reach when it was attacked.

    "An ambulance attempting to transport five injured people from the scene was set upon by a large group of people who smashed its windows," an ambulance spokesman said.

    Goodwin said the violence was disgusting.

    "What has been occurring on some fronts is that people of middle eastern backgrounds that have been seen in the Cronulla area - a swarm of the crowd has approached these people with vile abuse, in the most un-Australian way," Goodwin said.

    "We have a number of reports of persons that have been assaulted."
    He said the bulk of the crowd had behaved but pockets of violence had broken out.

    "... we have sections of the crowd that have swollen towards young Arabic males and females, who have been using this beach."

    Three people have been arrested so far, with more arrests expected.
    Earlier on Sunday, police rushed to Cronulla train station where a mob ran there from the foreshore after receiving a text message saying a group of Lebanese people were trying to leave.

    Goodwin said the text message was wrong, but sparked a scuffle at the station between the crowd and police.

    "The behaviour that's been seen down here at Cronulla today is nothing short of disgusting and disgraceful," he told reporters at the beach.
    "It's certainly not the Australian way.

    He appealed for calm in the beachside suburb in Sydney's south.
    "These people are from an area that is a peaceful suburb ... and what they are doing to their area at the moment, fuelled by people from other areas as well, is nothing short of disgraceful."

    Earlier, a police spokeswoman said two men, aged 32 and 20, had been charged with offensive behaviour.

    A third man had been arrested and was expected to be charged with assault, she said.

    It was not clear if any of the arrests related to earlier witness reports of at least three men being pursued and attacked as they tried to get away from angry members of the crowd chasing them on foot.

    At least two of the men took refuge at Northies Pub, where police gathered to protect them.

    Roads were closed down as the violence flared, with mounted police trying to maintain control lines as a police chopper hovered over the beach.
    Some bars and shops along the beach have temporarily closed. Others have bouncers stationed at the door, blocking anyone from going inside.

    Racial Violence Shocks Australian City

    By MIKE CORDER, Associated Press Writer

    Dec 11


    SYDNEY, Australia - Thousands of drunken white youths attacked police and people they believed were Arab immigrants at a Sydney beach on Sunday, angered by reports that youths of Lebanese descent had assaulted two lifeguards. Young men of Arab descent retaliated in several Sydney suburbs, fighting with police and smashing 40 cars with sticks and bats, police said.

    Thirty-one people were injured and 28 were arrested in hours of violence. Police said they were seeking an Arab man who allegedly stabbed a white man in the back.

    Multiracialism doesn't work. Solution: A true Nationalist Folk-state, expel alien populations. Easy to 'say' but doing's a whole 'nother matter. :icon1:
    "Yet Thomas Jefferson’s interest in the Saxon heritage went far beyond matters of philology. He held that the forward movement of British settlement in North America was a continuation of the original migration of Hengist and Horsa. It was all part of the vigorous expansion of a superior group of people. Jefferson even went so far as to suggest that the form of government being adopted in the emerging United States represented a restoration of the sublime Anglo-Saxon principles..."

    My lad, do not fret, and do not feel too much ill-will. We can be assured that even though a band of grotty hooligans, in a drunken stupor have brutalized our new countrymen, we can be assured that ...

    "Attacking people on the basis of their race, their appearance, their ethnicity, is totally unacceptable and should be repudiated by all Australians irrespective of their own background and their politics," Howard said.
    ... and, however, despite the fact that ...

    Cronulla, one of the few beaches in Sydney that is easily accessible by train, is often visited by youngsters from poorer suburbs, many of them of Arab descent. Residents accuse the youths of traveling in gangs and sometimes intimidating other beachgoers.
    the case is quite different. The aggressors are our existing countrymen. Listen, my lad,

    The violence shocked this city of 4 million which prides itself on being a cultural melting pot.
    like you and me, my lad. But, minor occurences do happen, but we know the future is bright, because ...

    Kuranda Seyit, director of the Forum of Australia's Islamic Relations, described Australia as a "pluralist society, with many faiths and traditions all raveled into one."
    adding,

    "This is the unique success of this nation, and we cannot let it fall into chaos and lawlessness."
    ...

    *****

    The question is: "Did I misquote the article?" They go about saying that "gangs sometimes intimidate other beachgoers, but the tone of the article makes it sound like these are minor occurences, like little children poking fun at other children for a good laugh and nothing more, making the reaction quite natural. I like this ... "Oh by the way, their irrational reaction is due to what Bruce Baird says:

    Bruce Baird, a government lawmaker, said anti-Muslim sentiment has risen in Australia since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the 2002 bombings in Bali, Indonesia, that killed 88 Australians. He noted that six women from Cronulla were killed in the Bali bombings.
    But that's irrelavant of course.

    This is one of the reasons I just can't read the newspaper.

    "thousands of youth", cannot all have been awakened wn.. which means there are a lot of people who have beeen doing their best to avoid the racist label so far. This time they got pushed one step too far.. and getting that R-label shoved into their face, that ought to piss them off even further.

    A veil raised from their faces, they will make certain that their 12 closest relatives and friends hear their side, thats some 40.000(?) new people brought out of the illusions!

    Which just might be enough to shift the official public oppinion in a community or two.

    Most people know that it doesn't work. It's just that they can't do anything about it. They have to go to work, pay off their mortgages and try and raise families. What's the alternative? A lifetime in and out of prison for racial activism? Far easier to pretend that this multiracial madness will eventually have a happy ending and go back to looking after your own interests. A few people beating up Arabs on a beach isn't going to make much difference in the long term. I remember when this sort of behaviour happened every day of the week here. Killings were not infrequent. Had absolutely zero impact on immigration except possibly delaying the inevitable by a few years.

    Sorry, but these stories say more about the media's obsession with 'racism' than political realities on the ground. Unfortunately.
    "If you are going to tell people the truth, you'd better make them laugh. Otherwise they'll kill you."

    A little background:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sydney_gang_rapes

    "The most influential of the Middle Eastern crime groups are the Muslim males of Telopea Street, Bankstown, known as the Telopea Street Boys. They and their associates have been involved in numerous murders over the past five years, many of them unprovoked fatal attacks on young Australian men for no other reason than that they are "Skips", as they call Australians. They have been involved in all manner of crime on a scale we have never seen before. Ram-raids on expensive stores in the city are epidemic. The theft of expensive motor vehicles known as car-jacking is increasing at an alarming rate. This crime involves gangs finding a luxury motor vehicle parked outside a restaurant or hotel and watching until the occupants return to drive home. The car is followed, the victims assaulted at gunpoint, and the vehicle stolen. The vehicles are always around or above the $100,000 mark and are believed to be taken to warehouses before being shipped interstate or to the Middle East.

    The Middle Eastern cycle of violence is not local. It can occur on the central coast, around Cronulla, Bondi, Darling Harbour, Five Dock, Redfern, Paddington, anywhere in Sydney. Unlike their Vietnamese counterparts, they roam the city and are not confined to either Cabramatta or Chinatown. And even more alarming is that the violence is directed mainly against young Australian men and women. There is a clear and definite link between violent attacks on our young men and women being racial as well as criminal. Quite often when taking statements from young men attacked by groups of Lebanese males around Darling Harbour, a common theme has been the racially motivated violence against the victims simply because they are Australian."

    Second night of racist violence shocks Australians

    Sydney (dpa) - Australia's reputation for racial harmony lay shattered Tuesday after a second night of violence in Sydney that saw youths of Middle Eastern origin fire shots, smash up shops and beat up bystanders in rich beachside suburbs where a mob of white youths went on the rampage at the weekend.

    Police were out in force to head off revenge attacks but were unable to stop convoys of cars from poor western suburbs heading for Cronulla and neighbouring beachside suburbs where violence exploded at the weekend.

    A police officer was among the seven men injured. There were 11 arrests.

    Prime Minister John Howard has described the violence as "sickening" but insisted it was not evidence of the deep-seated racism that some allege permeates Australian society.

    Those heading in convoys to Cronulla assembled first at the Lakemba mosque, Australia's largest and a focus for the 350,000 Moslems in Australia.

    Witnesses said around 70 cars travelled together to the beaches to avenge the singling out of people of Middle Eastern appearance in Sunday's alcohol-fueled melee. They were said to be armed with baseball bats and iron bars.

    There were also reports of pistols being flashed and shots being heard. There were reports that police had confiscated 30 Molotov cocktails and milk crates full of stones that white youths had stockpiled in readiness for battle.

    Police said it was very difficult to stop hit-and-run raids by youths in cars.

    Keysar Trad, president of the Islamic Association of Australia, said he had addressed the gathering at Lakemba but had clearly failed to prevent violence.

    "Really, we can only do what we are able to do and that is to talk as much as possible, rationally, calmly, and hope that everybody will listen to reason and understand the futility of violence," he told national broadcaster ABC. "Violence doesn't achieve anything. All it does is create more and more problems."

    Armed mob prowls city in second day of rioting

    From Roger Maynard in Sydney

    POLICE moved to quell a second night of rioting in Sydney yesterday after further clashes broke out in the beachside suburb of Cronulla.

    It followed the arrival of a large group of men of Middle Eastern appearance who smashed car windows and other property. A local resident said: “There’s chaos, with ambulances and police going in all directions. Some of the men began trashing every car in sight with baseball bats.”

    Similar disturbances were reported in the nearby suburb of Brighton-le-Sands, where a smaller crowd threw bricks at passing cars. The attacks coincided with a large police presence outside a mosque in the suburb of Lakema, which is home to thousands of Muslims.

    The latest trouble followed a day of running battles on Cronulla Beach, the scene of one of the worst outbreaks of racially motivated violence in Australia. Sixteen people were arrested and at least 25 were injured. Police and politicians pledged to crack down on those responsible. Police in New South Wales established a strike force to find those who took part in the riots, which involved several thousand people clashing with youths of mainly Middle Eastern origin.

    The violence broke out a week after two Australian lifeguards were allegedly assaulted on the beach by a Lebanese gang. Some residents, fearing that their popular weekend surfing haunt was in danger of becoming a no-go area, threatened anybody of a vaguely Middle Eastern appearance.

    Numbers were swelled by a text message campaign that urged Australians to defend their strip of sand from invasion. Outspoken radio presenters also have been criticised for stoking racial hatred.

    John Howard, the Prime Minister, said: “Mob violence is always sickening. Attacking people on the basis of their race, their appearance, their ethnicity is totally unacceptable and should be repudiated by all Australians.”

    Mr Howard dismissed any suggestion that warnings by his Government about the possibility of attacks by homegrown Islamic terrorists had fuelled the rampage.
    “It is impossible to know how individuals react, but everything this Government has said about homegrown terrorism has been totally justified,” he said, apparently referring to the arrests last month of 18 Muslim men on terrorism charges.

    Morris Iemma, the Premier of New South Wales, who is responsible for law and order in Sydney, said that video and photographic evidence would be used to track down offenders responsible for what he described as the ugly face of racism in Australia.
    He said: “The police will be unrelenting in their fight against these thugs and hooligans.” Mr Iemma was meeting community leaders last night.

    Stephen Kerkyasharian, the chairman of the Community Relations Commission, asserted that the racial violence was clearly premeditated and described it as the worst that Australia had seen in recent times.

    He said: “There were some thugs who engaged in unacceptable criminal behaviour that happened to be, in the main, of one particular ethnicity of Lebanese background. Then you had dark forces in our society who saw this opportunity to stir up residents who have had some resentment being built up within them.” Among the white Australians involved in the clashes on Sunday was a group called the Patriotic Youth League, a nationalist group that is considered to be a neo-Nazi organisation. The league advocates the deportation of immigrants and campaigns against foreign students being allowed to attend Australian universities. Kuranda Seyit, the director of the Forum on Australia’s Islamic Relations, said: “It was clearly Australian people victimising another ethnic group. It shows that there is underlying racism running deeply in the Australian psyche. It’s been simmering for a few years now, but I think (that in) the latest incident here, people have really let loose their inherent racism and violence.”
