Multiculturism or Assimilation? Australia goes for the latter. Are they right?

CAN YOU IMAGINE A UK POLITICIAN SAYING THIS? BUT IT'S (PROBABLY) WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK. 

     
   Australia says  NO - Second time she has done  this!

Prime  Minister Julia Gillard-   
Australia 
Muslims who want to live  under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday  to get out of   Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid  to head off potential terror  attacks..

Separately, Gillard  angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by  saying she supported spy agencies monitoring the  nation's mosques.  Quote:

'IMMIGRANTS,  NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT.. Take It Or Leave  It.
I  am tired of this nation worrying about whether  we are offending some individual or their  culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali ,  we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the  majority of Australians.  '

'This culture has been  developed over two centuries of struggles,  trials and victories by millions of men and  women who have sought  freedom'

'We speak mainly ENGLISH,  not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese,  Japanese, Russian, or any other language.  Therefore, if you wish to become part of our  society ... Learn the  language!'

'Most Australians believe  in God. This is not some Christian, right wing,  political push, but a fact, because Christian  men and women, on Christian principles, founded  this nation, and this is clearly documented. It  is certainly appropriate to display it on the  walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I  suggest you consider another part of the world  as your new home, because God is part of our  culture.'

'We will accept your  beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask  is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and  peaceful enjoyment with  us.'

'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR  LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you  every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once  you are done complaining, whining, and griping  about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian  beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage  you take advantage of one other great Australian  freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO  LEAVE'.'

'If  you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't  force you to come here. You asked to be here. So  accept the country YOU  accepted.'

So - do you agree with Prime Minister Julia Gillard? I do!
