By Brianh - 15 July 2009 160

In the local paper stuffed right on the back page is a notice to sell land at Nicholls. block 17 section 73, next to the Nicholls shop to the CMC, Canberra Muslim Community.

Not many people know what is going on so lets spread the word and find out.

A public information drop in session will be held at the Palmerston Community Centre, Tiptree Crescent, Palmerston – Monday 30 july 2009 3pm – 7pm.

Come and express your view’s.

[ED – Does anyone get upset when these deals are done for other groups?]

What’s Your opinion?

Aw gee… Muslims buying land for a school. What a travesty.

There seems to be a few people here from the school of ‘I’m not a racist… but….’

You guys should feel welcome to move to a whites only gated community and continue inbreeding.

You make me sick.

I can say for me personally I’m not for it on a traffic and parking side of things, but! the point of this post was to address the fact that it may happen, I did a quick door knock last night and people who live directly across the road didn’t even know. Doesn’t matter what gets put on the land the public should have a right to know and go to the meeting and say yes or no

why not ‘spread the word’ too about sales of land to people who might want to build a house and rasie a family, so more people infesting the planet. shame on them.

what is your point – why is a muslim purchaser an issue? are you virginia hausseger in drag?

sounds like it.

maybe the canberra muslim community want a place where they can meet with the rest of the canberra community and allow people to be able to interact in a friendly environment?

prior to 911, wasn’t the world a nicer place for muslims and other religious groups?

looks like those days are gone.

interested to see what the site will be used for. not to go and protest against it, though.

Virginia, are you seeing what a ban can do?

Blocks of land in community precincts get sold to church groups, charities and the like ALL THE TIME.

I don’t like the sound of where this is heading…

So long as this process is exactly the same as the process of any other community organisation accessing land, what exactly is the issue? Unless they put “terrorist training camp” on the land application. Then I give them points for high comedy.

Maybe the OP was misread, I didn’t see ‘school’ in that post.

However, if there is to be a school there it will have to follow specific guidelines showing ability to support itself, sustainability (new criteria) and that it will not take numbers away from the existing schools within the same area.

Those reasons above are why several schools (irrespective of denomination or cultural background) were denied several years ago.

Brianh, what is the issue here? Did you take a similar course of action when the Catholic primary school went in a few blocks down the road? I could go on…

I wonder what kind of voice Brianh wants to hear. I hope it not a xenophobic bigoted voice he is after.

Would it be presumptuous of me to read deep into the wording of this article and draw the obvious conclusion?

I cannot wait to spread my “view’s”!

My view is that people who can’t use an apostrophe correctly have no business opposing the sale of land to anyone who (presumably) wants to use it as a site for a school, or possibly ESL resource centre.
