Proud Aussie

I love it! Are you proud to be an Aussie?

From Australian Flag:

We need to be proud of our country and let
everybody know that “we love Australia”

An incident occurred in a supermarket recently, when the following was witnessed:

A Muslim woman dressed in a Burkha (A black gown & face mask) was
standing with her shopping in a queue at the checkout.

When it was her turn to be served, and as she reached the cashier, she
made a loud remark about the Australian Flag lapel pin, which the female
cashier was wearing on her blouse.

The cashier reached up and touched the pin and said, “Yes, I always wear
it proudly. My son serves abroad with the forces and I wear it for him”.

The Muslim woman then asked the cashier when she was going to stop
bombing and killing her countrymen, explaining that she was Iraqi.

At that point, a Gentleman standing in the queue stepped forward, and
interrupted with a calm and gentle voice, and said to the Iraqi woman:

“Excuse me, but hundreds of thousands of men and women, just like this
ladies son have fought and sacrificed their lives so that people just
like YOU can stand here, in Australia, which is MY country and allow you to
blatantly accuse an innocent check- out cashier of bombing YOUR

“It is my belief that if you were allowed to be as outspoken as that in
Iraq which you claim to be YOUR country, then we wouldn’t need to be
fighting there today”.

“However - now that you have learned how to speak out and criticise the
Australian people who have afforded you the protection of MY country,
I will gladly pay the cost of a ticket to help you pay your way back to

“When you get there, and if you manage to survive for being as outspoken
as you are here in Australia, then you should be able to help straighten
out the mess which YOUR Iraqi countrymen have got you into in the first
place, which appears to be the reason that you have come to MY country to

Apparently the queue cheered and applauded.
IF YOU AGREE.. Pass this on to all of your proud Aussie friends..


I am an American, and Proud of it.

But I would gladly stand and defend the FREE PEOPLE OF AUSTRALIA.
