    Clearly, Aussies don't have a CAIR. (Cheesy pun intended.) Federal Education Minister Brendan Nelson actually said that Muslims in Australia who don't want to accept local values should leave the country.

    He says that:

    • Muslim schools should denounce terror
    • ALL Australian schools are required to teach the national values framework, including tolerance, responsibility and understanding, to students. (Excellent - I like how he doesn't leave a loophole for anybody to restrict that teaching to, say, the custodial staff.)
    • he will meet with the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils to discuss programs that ensure students understand Australia's history, culture and values

      "We believe in giving every person a fair go, we don't care where people come from, we don't mind what religion they've got," Dr Nelson said.

      "But what we want them to do is commit to the Australian constitution, Australian rule of law and basically, people who don't want to be Australians, and they don't want to live by Australian values and understand them, well then they can basically clear off."

      Good on ya, Brendan Nelson!

    Would that we had the intestinal fortitude to demand the same insitence over our constitution.
