I got this in my email this morning and wonder first of all if it's true, and if so, how are the Australians here (and at home) reacting to this...
> Prime Minister Julia Gillard - Australia
> Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law, were told on

> Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by

Looking that up had me find this
The Liberals are our conservatives....there certainly is an ugly anti-Muslim group in our society.
BTW, I'd take to the barricades to stop Sharia Law ever becoming the law here. If it ever did, though, it would be because of population dynamics and I guess I'd just lose...
where ( email address) did the email come from Mame?
It came from a friend, to whom it had been forwarded, but he had deleted all the fwding info... but there was an http: link below to something called incredimail. I clicked on it and it just looks like an email service.
