Re: Preventing subversion or sedition against a government

Hi all. Ok, now this is one of the topics that has concerned me for some time. By that, I mean that Western countries seem to be very poorly prepared to defend against the so-called "jihad by stealth".

Re: Sharia Law

This hurt to read. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1196165/Britain-85-sharia-courts-The-astonishing-spread-Islamic-justice-closed-doors.html It's getting worse and I'm fed up of it.

Re: Hi from New Zealand

Poached for knowing Morse code...........In those days nearly every Boy Scout knew Morse code and the the Semaphore Signals. Yeah, actually that's fair comment!
