Violent anti-Israel demonstration in Australia

There was a violent anti-Israel demonstration in Melbourne, Australia on Sunday.

Let's go to the videotape (note that the moron who posted this put Ehud Olmert's name in the title). This is Part 7 of the 'demonstration.'

The occasion was a visit by a number of Israeli lawmakers to Australian Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
The gathering, a joint Australia-Israel Leadership Forum being held at the Park Hyatt Hotel in East Melbourne, featured speeches by Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom and Australian Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

But the event also became the scene of a violent demonstration that forced guests to enter through a side door, while police were forced to spray a mob of screaming rioters at the front of the hotel with pepper spray in order to push them back.

The pro-Arab protestors, who continued to try to force their way into the lobby, waved placards and pounded on the door, shouting "Free Palestine!" and various epithets. Three rioters managed to break through the line of police officers and forced their way in to the foyer, where according to Australian media, "punches were thrown and [they] were wrestled to the ground."

Police mounted on horseback were also brought in to force back the mob, which was estimated at approximately 200 and reportedly included women and children.

Police said they were dismayed that the demonstrators had not kept their word to maintain order. "We're disappointed that the protestors broke their agreement," Sergeant Steve Burke told the Australia Network News (ANN). "They said it was going to be peaceful and in the end they've forced the issue and we've had to force them back."

Three protestors were arrested in the melee and later released on their own recognizance.

At the event, Australian Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard met with Israel's Deputy Prime Minister Silvan Shalom and others, including MKs Avi Dichter, Nachman Shai and Ronit Tirosh (all members of Kadima), Daniel Ben-Simon (Labor) and Danny Danonm who also is World Likud chairman.
I guess they learned nothing from Bali (where most of the victims were Australian).

I've always recognized Australians as a very conservative and logical bunch...many of them can't stand the Muslim influence in their country. I don't think this demonstration is representative of the general population.

When Australia dropped its ties to the British Empire in the 1970s, it lost a great deal of its identity. The multicultural Australia of today bears little resemblance to the white Australia of the past and its hard to say whether the change was for the better - many might argue its for the worse as non-European immigrants show little inclination of being assimilated into Australian culture and life. The violent demonstration in Melbourne has revealed how little minorities have integrated into present day Australia.

The protesters actually meant to scream:

"White Europeans and Arab Muslims out of Australia!"

"Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea occupation is a crime!"

"Free the Aborigines!"

"From Australia to Guinea Oceania will be free!"
