    However, this is not to be taken as a claim or something before I locate the original source!

    Yep here's some references, I am sure there are more

    But they can't be completely hopeless as they have had written languages for a few thousand years. As well as having semitic roots. Before post WW2 migration program certain categories had to have good behaviour for 15 years before becoming permanent residents. You could campaign for that if you wanted to attempt to make a difference.
    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

    May I campaign for all Australians to act in a civilized way? May I also campaign for appropriate punishment to follow for those gangs?

    What is deemed appropriate punishment is usually applied - all based on professional assessments. Are you suitably qualified and experienced to question such assessments?

    Yep, as long as you keep in mind some extremely idiotic ideas (not sure If I read it here or elsewhere) suggesting serial rapists should be let go free since it's too expensive to keep them under lock and key!

    So if a sentence 20 years it costs about $2m. Biggest waste of money. Instead put prisoners on a safe island with primitive camping conditions costing peanuts and give the $2m to the victim instead. I would like to see that.

    Happened some months ago but I saw the video only now.
    As far as I understand the guy who did it is NOT in prison.
    And what about his ''mates'' who saw it going on for years and did nothing?

    Fortunately or unfortunately and sooner or later it will have to come to that if the State doesn't take drastic anti-gang measures starting from the hot spots.
    In our area, it was very successfully implemented. One organised community effort proved too much for the thugs who never showed up again.
