Aussie Riots: Second night of Violence.

Australia: Things are breaking down as armed gangs are roving the streets.

SYDNEY erupted in a second night of racial violence last night as Middle Eastern mobs stabbed a woman, assaulted others and smashed shops around Cronulla, while up to 600 young men - armed with guns and crowbars - prepared for a battle. In a terrifying escalation of the conflict, up to 70 cars from Hurstville invaded Cronulla and Brighton-le-Sands to launch revenge attacks, following the vicious attacks by Cronulla locals on people of Middle Eastern appearance on Sunday. Twenty carloads of men arrived at Cronulla by about 10.30pm, smashing shops, and cars in Elouera Road, and threatening people who got in their way. They reportedly stabbed a woman at Carringbah, but her condition was unknown. About 11.30pm a group of about 100 Cronulla locals surrounded a car carrying men of Middle Eastern appearance, but police cleared the crowd and let the car escape. Hours earlier, about 200 men had assembled outside Lakemba Mosque - some armed with Glock pistols - and dozens more gathered at Campsie. They were preparing to travel to Maroubra Beach, where up to 300 locals, many armed with crowbars, waited for an arranged fight, according to "Bra Boys" at the beach. But some young Muslims said they had gathered to protect the mosque because of a threatened attack on it by a gang from the southern beaches. Following Sunday's riot at Cronulla beach - when local mobs had bashed people of Middle Eastern appearance - police confiscated iron bars and other weapons at Maroubra last night and blocked roads around the mosque. About 20 police cars surrounded the mosque, where four men showed their pistols and ammunition to a news crew, and boasted that others were carrying arms. At 10.45pm, on the Kingsway at Caringbah, about 12 cars sped by, followed by another vehicle that stopped. Four men got out and began attacking patrons of Antonio's Pizzeria. They knocked a woman unconscious on the footpath and smashed the window of a denture clinic. Thai-born Suchada Goodier, 44, owner of a Thai restaurant on the Kingsway, said she was walking on the street when she was attacked. The group then started bashing her car. "What have I done?" she said. "I have done nothing." In Bay Street, Brighton-le-Sands, a young woman was sitting in a car when men approached and opened the door to her vehicle and put a hand up her dress, saying: "We are going to rape you, you Aussie sluts." A witness, Linda El-Hassan, 19, said a shot was fired at the woman's car but she was unhurt. Miss El-Hassan said she was Lebanese and opposed the violence. "We all came to this country and we are all one in this country." The mobs vandalised cars and Bay Street was strewn with rubbish and a government bus was attacked and its back window smashed. Many police gathered in Bay Street, where a senior officer was heard to say: "Let's get our [riot] gear on and smash 'em." At Lakemba Mosque earlier, a media crew had been involved in an altercation with some in the crowd about 7pm. A man is believed to have suffered a broken leg during a scuffle. Islamic leaders tried to calm the crowd, imploring the men over a loudspeaker to go inside and pray. Outside the Maroubra Bay Hotel, police dressed in riot gear prepared for violence. A Channel Seven reporter, Robert Ovadia, was surrounded by a group who menaced him, spat in his face, threatened to head-butt him and told him that the media had stirred up all the trouble. Ovadia called police, who sent a patrol car. The Herald's reporter at Maroubra retreated under a hail of water bombs. The Bra Boys had told the media they were not welcome. Police said there was evidence of text and email messages promoting another confrontation at Cronulla next Sunday. One email, obtained by the Herald, congratulates those involved in Sunday's riots but warns of armed retaliation. "This is only the beginning, this is a start of the war! Leb's n wog's won't stand for this and will start singling out the aussies and gang bashing them with drawn weapons. We must continue to come together to help the innocent and family's so everyone can enjoy our beach's!"
Previous posts here, here , here , here and here with background info. Update# This comment from Tim Blair's site is what I expected from most of the Aussie media.
The only channel offering a fair view of the Cronulla incidents is unbelievably the Australian ABC TV! Channel 7 and Ten are launching into white rascism attacks and interviewing every dhimmy available and are expressly blaming John Howard for bringing in the new anti-terror laws. What is going on here!
I am not surprised, these events did not happen spur of the moment, this has bubbling for the last couple of years. Now it has erupted, the cultural elites go after the majority as racist rednecks while giving the "root cause" excuse to the minority. I have seen it happen over and over again, look at France, London, here in America for the same pattern. The Police are also the problem as this story last month showed.
POLICE are being advised to treat Muslim domestic violence cases differently out of respect for Islamic traditions and habits. Officers are also being urged to work with Muslim leaders, who will try to keep the families together. Women's groups are concerned the politically correct policing could give comfort to wife bashers and keep their victims in a cycle of violence. The instructions come in a religious diversity handbook given to Victorian police officers that also recommends special treatment for suspects of Aboriginal, Hindu and Buddhist background.
You treat people differently and you are going to cause a backlash. The locals have had enough of the problem caused by the Middle Eastern gangs, the politicians/police don't seem to want take the problem head on because they don't want to be called racists, so the public pops off.
