SOMEONE must remind Bob Katter and his recruit that in Australia, terrorism is carried out by Christians.  All of our attempted aircraft hijackings, for example, were done by Christians. It was also a Christian in Australia who invented the technique used at New York’s World Trade Centre. In 1977, an Australian Christian stole a plane at Wyndham airport, took it up and brought it straight down on the office of a local airline. He killed six people, including himself. Only Osama Bin Laden took any notice. It was Christians who planted bombs along Sydney’s George Street, who murdered the Turkish consuls in Sydney and Melbourne, who ran a terrorist army in Perth which blew things up and committed murder, who committed the Port Arthur massacre, the Belanglo State Forest killings and the mass burnings of backpackers at Childers and Kings Cross.  And then there’s the little problem of child abuse.
