Streets of Sydney in anti-Lebanese riots
Australia is a fine democratic country too:
By Fernando Kallás for the Lebanese Blogger Forum "A bare-chested youth in Quicksilver boardshorts tore the headscarf off the girl's head as she slithered down the Cronulla dune seeking safety on the beach from a thousand-strong baying mob.
Up on the road, Marcus "Carcass" Butcher, 28, a builder from Penrith, wearing workboots, war-camouflage shorts and black singlet bearing the words "Mahommid was a camel f---ing faggot" raised both arms to the sky. "F--- off, Leb," he cried victoriously." (The Sydney Morning Herald - December 12th 2005)
First of all, I would like to warn about the strong and shocking images that follows this article. But I think they're necessary under the circumstances. I'm really sorry also that my first post in the Leb Blogger Forum has to be about such sickening, shameful and outrageous events that are happening in Australian in the last couple of days. It all started as a beach party in Cronulla - Sydney, celebrating a kind of perverted nationalism that was gatecrashed by racism. [article]
