The Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission has slammed the intolerance and bigotry inside our immigrant detention centres. Andrew Bolt reports:

A Last Resort? cites many witnesses who confirm that Muslims in most detention centres have persecuted Christians and Sabian Mandaeans, people of a Middle Eastern faith that borrows from Christianity.

In three centres, the persecution was so bad that non-Muslims had to be given protection.

For instance, A Last Resort? notes: "A Christian mother reported to the South Australian child protection agency that she was persecuted by Muslims in the detention centre because of her religious beliefs.

"They view her as unclean and she was assaulted by a Muslim detainee when she tried to pass food to him while she was working in the detention centre kitchen."

Wow. How’s that guy going to cope with the drive-thru at McDonald’s?

Woohoo!!! First to post!!!
What was the name of that book released late last year/early this year about what goes on inside the detention centers? The author slams the pretentious do-gooders for being self-righteous wankers from sydney who should come and spend some time with these poor widdle "refugees". She states throughout the book that the muslims are moody, aggressive, rude etc, and the christians are extremely polite and well behaved.
Not that I'm against muslims, but a spade is a spade.

Why do we tolerate the intolerant? I look forward to further cultural clashes as these "poor refugees" who are part of the "peaceful islamic religion" integrate into our society.

Sandy Thorne is a bush poet/speaker/author & she's also worked in 2 detention centres. She put out a book last year called 'Beyond the Razor Wire'. I haven't read it myself, but is that the book you mean?

That should be the first test. Those that choose to go to single religion camps get shipped out immediately.

Easy. Stoop to pick up a box from the floor on his first day, then clutch his hand to his back in feigned pain yelling "Whiplash!".

Ship 'em back.

Every nation ought to have video cams in detention centers and use that evidence to determine who gets in.

If they hate Christians to the extent that they persecute us while begging for asylum in a Christian country, send the rotters back where they came from. If they have government issues, that's their business.
