Honesty from the Australian Prime Minister...

John Howard speaks his mind. Refreshing.
JOHN Howard has strongly criticised aspects of Muslim culture, warning they pose an unprecedented challenge for Australia's immigration program.

While he remained confident that the overwhelming majority of Muslims would be successfully integrated, the Prime Minister said there were two unique problems that previous intakes of migrants from Europe and Asia did not have.

"I do think there is this particular complication because there is a fragment which is utterly antagonistic to our kind of society, and that is a difficulty," Mr Howard told The Australian.

"You can't find any equivalent in Italian, or Greek, or Lebanese, or Chinese or Baltic immigration to Australia. There is no equivalent of raving on about jihad, but that is the major problem."

The Prime Minister also expressed concern about Muslim attitudes to women. "I think some of the associated attitudes towards women (are) a problem," he said.

I'm hoping Harper will be more like Howard than his contemporary, Tony Blair. God knows on the "jihad" file, we need someone who isn't afraid to speak the truth. And yet in light of the responses from our government on the cartoon fiasco one has a right to be skeptical of any real change.
