Muslims Adapt Or Leave Julia Gillard Australia PM Hoax

In Australia, terrorism on December 17, 2014 at 13:25

I saw a message attributed to Julia Gillard,PM of Australia asking Muslims to either adapt or Leave.

 

I crosschecked the information and found that this is a hoax.

 

Well, Wish some one had the Guts to say it!

W O W ! She Did It
Again!!!

Australia says NO — This will be the second Time Julia Gillard has done this!

She sure isn’t backing down on her hard line stance and one has to appreciate her belief in the rights of her native countrymen.

A breath of fresh air to see someone lead. Australian Prime Minister does it again!!

The whole world needs a leader like this!

Prime Minister Julia Gillard – Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies
monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote:
‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT… Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.’

‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.’

‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese,

Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!’

‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’

‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

NOTE: IF we circulate this amongst ourselves in Canada & USA , WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

If you agree please SEND THIS ON and ON, to as many people as you know…

 

Analysis.

This message, which circulates via email and social media, claims that Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard recently told Muslims living in Australia that they should leave the country if they wished to live under Islamic Sharia law. According to the message, the Gillard government is targeting radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks and supports the monitoring of Mosques by spy agencies. The message, couched as a news report, goes on to quote a diatribe about immigration supposedly delivered by Gillard.

However, Julia Gillard did not make the comments attributed to her. In fact, the message is nothing more than a revamped version of much earlier messages that involved previous Australian Prime Ministers. The first version of the message claimed that it was Prime Minister John Howard who made the remarks. A later version attributed the comments to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. While the original Howard version did contain some elements of truth, both the Rudd and Gillard versions have no basis in fact.

Discriminate Pregnant Women,Gays Australian Law

In Australia on January 17, 2013 at 09:33

Is this Enlightenment or stupidity?

How about Pedophiles?

The funniest part is that Corporations with over 300 Million $ are authorized to do so.

Law of Discrimination,Australia

The draft bill makes clearer which groups religious organisations can discriminate against lawfully.

Story:

Religious organisations, including those funded by the state government, retain their legal right to discriminate against pregnant women under a new human rights bill.

The draft of the Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill consolidates five existing federal discrimination laws after a decades-long campaign by lawyers and human rights advocates. The draft bill makes clearer which groups religious organisations can discriminate against lawfully.

Under the draft bill, faith-based groups, including schools and hospitals, can still refuse to hire people because of a wide range of attributes that would be unlawful for any other organisation, including women who are pregnant or potentially pregnant.

When the Sex Discrimination Act – which came into force in 1984 – was drafted, a number of religious bodies argued they should be allowed to discriminate against pregnant or ”potentially pregnant” women to avoid having to employ unwed mothers.

The Human Rights Law Centre’s director of advocacy and strategic litigation, Anna Brown, said that while the bill introduced important new protections from discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, and removed the ability of religious bodies to discriminate on the basis of age, sex and breastfeeding, it was a ”missed opportunity” to narrow the broad exemptions available to religious groups.

Weet-Bix manufacturer Sanitarium is a religious organisation owned and operated by the Seventh-Day Adventist church, which means it could discriminate against people with these attributes.

An online advertisement for a manufacturing team leader position with the company says: ”If you share our passion for what we do, our products and you can align with our Christian-based principles this is a great opportunity for you.”

Sanitarium spokeswoman Julie Praestiin said the company’s workplace culture was ”grounded on Christian-based values of care, courage, humility, integrity and passion which are generally shared by the Australian community”.

She said Sanitarium complied with employment laws. ”We are an equal opportunity employer and have a diverse workforce which encompasses a variety of cultures and worldviews. Religious belief is not a condition of employment.”

Hugh de Kretser, executive officer of the Federation of Community Legal Centres, said that Sanitarium, which is understood to have a turnover of $300 million a year – although the church is not required to lodge Sanitarium’s financial reports – should not be allowed to discriminate.

”That a large organisation with a turnover of $300 million a year is given a green light by the law to discriminate highlights the problems with these exemptions,” he said.

Interactive Updates on NSW Fire,Australia

In some areas of the state, winds of more than 70 kilometers an hour were threatening to fan the flames of fires already burning. However, a change in wind direction had caused temperatures in certain parts of the state to fall, offering some relief.

A “catastrophic” fire risk has been declared in four areas of NSW, although the risk across 90% of the state is “severe” or above. A “catastrophic” warning carries the risk of significant loss of life and the destruction of many homes, according to the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS).

“I cannot say it more plainly: the risk is real and potentially deadly. People need to act now,” the service’s Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said.

On Tuesday morning, Prime Minister Julia Gillard warned it was “dangerous” day and urged people to “stay focused.(CNN).

Doctor Collects Overtime Bill 681,759 Dollars!

In Australia, Interesting and funny on July 22, 2012 at 10:25

 

That most of the Doctors are after money to recover their cost of Education.

 

But this one takes the cake!

 

Workin' Overtime

Workin’ Overtime (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Story:

 

A doctor in regional NSW has been paid almost $700,000 in overtime during a two-year period to cover the roster of a public hospital.

 

It has been revealed the doctor has been paid as much as $39,598 in one month to work extra hours and stay on-call in addition to normal hours, a practice being condemned by the Australian Medical Association.

 

The Sun-Herald has obtained documents under freedom of information laws that revealed the doctor had earned $333,073 in overtime in the 2010-11 financial year and the same doctor earned $348,686 in overtime the previous year on top of the salary earned for working in the unnamed public hospital.

 

The doctor is described as a career medical officer, a position which on average earns about $150,000 a year for a 38-hour week. NSW Health has refused to identify the hospital or the local health district involved.

But the large overtime amounts caught the attention of the NSW Auditor-General, Peter Achterstraat, who has reported to State Parliament that it was the highest amount paid to a single employee in NSW Health.

 

Internal NSW Health documents obtained by The Sun-Herald showed contradictory explanations for the excessive amounts of overtime.

 

In one internal report prepared after Mr Achterstraat queried the payment, NSW Health said the overtime was worked by a full-time career medical officer who had good clinical skills and ”works agreed shifts to minimise the use of locums per agreement with the hospital’s medical director”.

 

However, another NSW Health email stated: ”Although it would have been cheaper to use locums more often that [sic] pay this overtime, the need for experienced local knowledge and reliability was a key.”
