    It is your legal standing that matters, not public opinion



    Arnhem Land, for example, is aboriginal land
    Would you consider the entire situation as best evidence of having double standards for the Indigenous and non-Indigenous?
    Not to mention that if i got there and claim to be Indigenous...the better accept that I am .

    I don't think USA and Palestine excludes other religions.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    ER should be very careful about quoting from the Daily Mail without making a close scrutiny of the real facts.
    1. What has the religious group really been doing?
    2. Were they banned because of their racist religious activities & criminal damage?
    3. While this group may claim to be Christian, they are not.

    A wise prince will seek means by which his subjects will always and in every possible condition of things have need of his government, and then they will always be faithful to him. Niccolo Machiavelli (14691527), Il Principe (The Prince)

    A wise prince will also realise that this can be achieved more successfully by means other than rape, pillage, greed, lies, deceit or misinformation.

    There is no double standard. You can restrict or deny access to your land (which of course was originally aboriginal land until seized by colonial settlers). Traditional owners can restrict or deny access to their land.

    You would be hard pressed to prove that you are a traditional owner if you tried to pursue such a claim.

    I think Michael has finally grasped that landowners (Indigenous or not) have a perfect legal right to decide who enters their land, as he seems to have wandered off-topic
