    Abbott, who recently warned that the balance between freedom and security “may have to shift” to protect against radicalised Muslims seeking to carry out attacks, said hate preachers would now be “red-carded” during the visa process.

    "red carded" during the visa process?? First we had "Team Australia" now we have "red cards' and previously the immigration department "refereeing" on decisions..... Why do Australians always need difficult topics presented in sporting terms??

    I hope the United States and all Americans never forget what a good friend we have in Australia

    Lets hope this is a two way street and the US comes to Australia's defence if the day ever comes... there is no obligation under the ANZUS treaty for the US to actually put boots on the ground (sorry, drones in the air) if Australia is attacked...

    many people consider Israels actions in the middle east to be extremist and a form of terrorism... will these laws also apply to Australians who serve with the Israeli military when they return to Australia??

    Pretty ashamed to be an American when I look at the images coming out of Ferguson. Militarized police looking like Navy SEAL teams. Miserably neglected neighborhoods full of decaying buildings, graffiti, cracked roads and sidewalks, and people who look like they're from a third-world nation.

    In 20 years from now, the whole of the States will look like this after policing is outsourced to reduce 'big' government ...

    Really? Where? Not in the Middle East and definitely not in Europe. Maybe in Japan?

    The U.N. General Assembly in 2013 adopted a total of 21 resolutions singling out Israel for criticism — and 4 resolutions on the rest of the world combined. Doesn't sound like Israel is avoiding criticism.

    I was being facetious ......

    no point in criticising Israel for any action it takes as you will simply be labelled anti-semitic .... Israel has moved beyond criticism and exists in it's own bubble of deluded self justification ....

    where's Cheney, Rumsfeld and the old crowd?? Shouldn't they be the ones going back to clean up this mess?? Despite repeated warnings years ago that the current situation was a real possibility, they pressed on with shock and awe to 'liberate' the Iraqi's and free up the oilfields for western interests.... they must be proud of what they have achieved....
