Cookeetree, what's wrong with Austraila?
Hey Cookee, since your from Austrailia, What's up with the youth uprising? I'm here in Florida and there doesn't seem to be much about what's happening in Queensland, I think it's Queensland. The only thing I can get from the news is that there will be a big uprising on Sunday? Any truth to this? Also, they keep saying it's Neo-Nazis, is that true? I just figure you'd know. Hit me back.
Oh yeah, this is what I'm talking about. Sorry it's long.
Now churches are targeted

FOUR churches in Sydney's southwest have been attacked in 24 hours as the city's riots spread from race to religion.
A community hall linked to a Uniting church was burned to the ground early yesterday, carol-singers were spat on and church buildings peppered with gunfire.
In response, members of the Arab Christian and Arab Muslim communities have called for a curfew for all Lebanese youths over the weekend.
Police believe the attack on the hall, in the suburb of Auburn, was intended to destroy the Uniting church next door, while nearby StThomas's Anglican Church, which has a primarily Chinese congregation, had all its front windows smashed. Three of the attacks were on churches within minutes of each other. The night before, Molotov cocktails were used in an attack on an Anglican church in Macquarie Fields in the city's far southwest.
Arab Christians have suggested the attacks on churches may have been meant as a violent attempt to "shame" the city's Lebanese Christian community into supporting Lebanese Muslims in the race-hate war, which began as a battle against young white males over use of suburban beaches.
Community leaders said Lebanese youths should not venture out after 9pm on Friday and Saturday, and should stay home all day on Sunday.
