Our Prime Minister has been forced to intervene in a diplomatic spat with India over the attacks.
Over the last week I have been watching the media reporting to see whether they're reporting on who the perpetrators of the attacks are.
Not one report has provided the information that is most salient to the crimes - that they're being mostly carried out by immigrants to Australia, mainly from Africa.
So what do we have now?
The nitwit leftists who jump on any opportunity to kick Australia and accuse it of being a nation of racists are howling from the rooftops.
In the People's Republic of Victoria, Rob Hulls has introduced new hate crimes legislation:
HATE crime could soon be an offence in Victoria as the State Government moves to crack down on violent attacks against Indian students, homosexuals and other targeted groups.Of course, the only problem with such legislation is that the government will never have the courage to charge anyone other than white, male Australians.
Under a plan being pushed by Attorney-General Rob Hulls, judges would have to take into account "hatred for or a prejudice against a particular group of people" as an aggravating factor when sentencing offenders.
Tougher sentences would apply to crimes deemed to be based on victims' race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
The Chinese never miss the chance to put the boot in and take advantage of a situation:
THE future of the $15.5 billion overseas student industry is under threat after the Chinese Government went public with concerns about violence against its students in Australia.At least we have a Prime Minister who can tell the Chinese to pull in their heads in their own language. Not that he has the balls for that.
Battling to contain the damage arising from attacks on Indian students, university vice-chancellors fear Australia's third-largest export industry may face sanctions from the Chinese and Indian governments.
Chinese embassy counsellor Liu Jin yesterday said his Government was intervening to ensure the safety of Chinese nationals.
"There are over 130,000 Chinese students in Australia," he said. "They have, on the whole, had a good study and living environment in Australia, but attacks on Chinese students also occurred in recent years.
"The Chinese embassy and consulates in Australia attach high importance to the safety of Chinese students … It is hoped that the Australian Government will provide better protection to international students from China and other countries and ensure their legitimate rights in Australia."
Not letting an opportunity to get her noggin into the media again, Australian minor Bollywood starlet, Tania Zaetta, has 'begged' Bollywood to stop a boycott against Australia.
Aussie Bollywood star Tanya Zaetta has pleaded with the Indian film industry not to boycott Australia over the spate of attacks on Indian students in Melbourne.
The actress, who appeared in the Melbourne-produced Bollywood movie Salaam Namaste, said she was "horrified" to hear of the race violence but added that any boycott would do more harm than good.Zaetta is 'ashamed to be Australian' due to attacks that are mostly carried out by a country whose intake of immigrants exceeds any other in the world on a per capita basis.
“I understand completely Indians being upset over the recent racial attacks, I’m appalled by them myself," Zaetta told ninemsn.
"It makes me ashamed to be Australian when you hear about attacks on people of other cultures.
"But I think everyone needs to take a deep breath and calm down. Bollywood boycotting Australia will only drive the two countries further apart."
Why can't the truth be told?
Australia is among the least racist nations on earth. Not that you'd know that from reading the media.
