      For years New Zealand has been held as a model of inter race relations. I have never heard a bad thing come out of New Zealand on the matter and now I am directed to this.....

      Damn it! Is there nowhere on this planet where different peoples can live together in relative peace? Is it even possible?

      It's really depressing.

        Much ado about nothing. Reminds me of the Black Panther Party crying similair accusations after the police raids of the 1970s. Militant Blacks did not represent the vast majority of African Americans then & I really rather doubt if this political party in New Zealand does a good job of representing their people either. If in doubt throw down the race card, a typical liberal action.

          Afaik, only one significantly Maori person was targeted in the raid - the rest were radical environmentalists first and foremost. As for race relations - every Kiwi learns the national anthem first in english and then in Maori, regardless of race, the Haka is a national thing regardless of race, if anything the chinese immigrant population are more involved in the racial tension, due to their numbers and unwillingness to integrate fully.

          as for the rest of NZ, the majority of them are happy to come to Oz and bludge off our social welfare system

          but in all seriousness, the terror raids had very little to do with racial tensions, and more to do with Kiwi's clutch of rabid mungbean hippies.

              Much as Gunny was my first reaction and I guess my second was that maybe this was a sign of our times one set of laws aimed at one group used to target another. However its hard to say if people are actually running armed training camps then I guess they need arresting even if that is in the South Downs of old England (Near London).

              And if they are not actually doing that then it is probably a terrible miss use of powers. Which happens.

              Either way I am back with Gunny feeling sad about the world ...again.

                    Thanks for additional info, IVAN. Always appreciate "straight answers".

                    Verbaluzi: I've edged toward that same line of approach upon occasion (concerning the Moslems), it usually gets me called offensive names.
