Never forget the 100 or so brave Muslim soldiers and police who die every day fighting these extremists to try and keep you safe. Never forget the tens of thousands of Muslim soldiers who fight extremists every day. Never forget the hundreds of thousands of Muslims killed by these extremists. Also never forget that the west has killed over a million innocent Muslims since 9/11 as part of their “War on Terror". Doug Steley, Heyfield France had the courage to criticise the US led invasion of Iraq in 2003. It was a principled stance that stood France in good stead with its neighbours around the world. But since then France has changed its colours. It has joined the United States in believing wrongly that it can 'police' other nations including Iraq and Syria. In so doing it has joined the list of nations committing state sponsored terrorism in the name of security. It is this egregious behaviour that is resulting in retaliation against the French people. You see you can't bomb another country and call it justified and then turn around and think your own nation won't be targeted in return. If the French people want peace they must act peaceably towards others. If they want terrorism then continue to commit acts of state-sponsored terror abroad. Adam Bonner, Brogo When oh when will the government buy back professional fishing licenses on Lake Illawarra. The amount of money generated by them is hugely outweighed by what amateur and&nbsp;tourist dollars spent here fishing. Sussex inlet and the Bay are a prime example. Retire them from the lake. Peter Tornaros, Oak Flats I remember last year at this time walking through the mall and thinking how dead and dreary it was, almost Christmas and not a carol to be heard anywhere. Why can't we have some piped music? The buskers are not enough, they stand in place and quite frankly are generally not that good. Come on council, liven the mall up at this time of year. We love to hear the carols. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Moira B, Figtree DONT BLAME ALL FOR THE ACTIONS OF A FEW Look!!! there is good and bad in every nationality!!! But one thing remains clear "Not every Muslim is a terrorist. _ Rattythekid. I think you will find that Christianity had its bloody history of brutally murdering innocent people based on their religious beliefs during the crusades. Those victims were muslims. And more recently a very well known catholic terrorist organisation had its reign of terror killing people in my homeland through the 60's and 70's. _ Steve. Sorry Jason but when I see a Muslim lady in a hijab and greet her with a "salam" I inevitably get a beaming smile in response. Not all Muslims are terrorists. _ Allison Watts. I am living in fear. 12 000 coming to Australia is insane. This country is going to hell in a hand basket. I am avoiding busy places now - big shopping centres, tourist attractions. I hate what the world has become and rather than think it could never happen to us, I really feel it's only a matter of time. _IfNotNowWhen.
