    Muslims say Islam is a religion of peace which is just a blatant lie the so called prophet Mohamed lead 88 military campaigns in his life killing indiscriminately. All he was was a blood thirsty facsist who used religion to unite a people for war. Islam was founded on blood and it has been fed by it ever since

    I am sick of listening about a way i feel sorry because the main problem is that the majority have no education... Help them to educate them self's, so they can get good jobs and stay out of trouble.

    How much more of this violent #$%$ do Australians have to put up with in their own country by these blow-in muslim nutters before you wake up to the danger the whole of Australia is facing ??? Tell the UN to shove their ridiculous 'rights' charters up their collective useless a$$es and kick all these muslim invaders out of Australia forever - before our great country ends up like France and England !

    These problems are magnified because most Men have little knowledge about How to actually Make love to a Woman , they are only worried about getting themselves off ..From the womans point of view , Australian women are simply FAR TOO FAT , and look for excuses . THERE ARE NO EXCUSES FOR BEING A GIANT FATTIE , stop making excuses and get off your backside , for MEN , study the female form ..Keep yourself groomed ..contribute some effort . Most Women are Starved of Sex.

    When a woman turns herself off her partner, and focuses on some one else there is no chance of getting back what you had.
