Forget the dropbears, I'm more concerned with bunyips.

Bit of an over-reaction, one suspects.

The magazine's editor, originally a cartoonist who uses the name Charb, denied he was being deliberately provocative at a delicate time.

And even if he was, so what?

People who don't like western-style democracies shouldn't move to them.

FTA: Meanwhile Muslim leaders have thrown their support behind the NSW Police ahead of the rumoured protests this weekend.

The grand mufti of Australia, Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed, who has never fronted the media in such a way, joined two prominent sheikhs, riot police and the NSW Police Deputy Commissioner, Nick Kaldas, this afternoon to declare their support for the actions of police during and after the violent protests last weekend.

The announcement is likely to anger some members of the Muslim community who have insisted that police baited protesters in Sydney's Hyde Park and responded heavy-handedly.

Some have expressed outrage that their leaders have "sided" with the police.

"We are all on the same side," said Dr Mohamed, through his translator.

"This country is not great or famous for its koalas and kangaroos. It is great for its freedom."


It's good to see Muslim leaders coming out and denouncing the violence for a change.

I must say I disagree with the Grand Muffhead on this. We are great and famous for our koalas and kangaroos. Add a wombat and you've got world farking domination.

Totally agree, but if you look at the footage from around the world, the bulk of protesters are young men in their 20's. They are a bunch of punks looking to cause some friction. I doubt they will be swayed too much by the elders, as this is more about angst than religion, IMHO.

The late Gore Vidal frequently used the adjective "irritable" when describing these folks.

We never really cared much for Perth, all we knew about them were they were a bunch of coal miners, and the WACA.

That's not entirely true. It pretty much is famous for its koalas and kangaroos.

But I thought the teachings of Islam were to incite violence against unbelievers. I mean its right there in black and white in the quran. They look at non islamists as sub human. Their prophet was a despicable warlord, killed innocent women and children and whose military conquests sparked the crusades to take back stolen land. To me it sounds like these people are following their beliefs pretty accurately. So the news question is...do we want this. I recommend learning more about islam. I have and it ranges from simplistic to downright frightening. It's not sunshine and roses.

No, it's ancient ... before Perth even existed.

It dates from first settlement, when there was only one big colony (New South Wales) so effectively Melbourne and Sydney were both in the same "state" (though states didn't even exist then). You were either Sydney-side or Yarra-side of the colony. (Melbourne is on the Yarra, which is a big river in what is now the state of Victoria.)

What you expect from people who celebrate Spring in September.

The real reason for Yanks to avoid New South Wales is that the University of Queensland has developed forensic sheep which have been exported across state lines to Sydney. You have been warned.  They sheep not only talk, but gather quite a lot of evidence.
