UGLY: Fin Review plays race card on Obeid

If Eddie Obeid broke the law, he should be punished. But the guilt-by-association frenzy that swirls around the former NSW MP is getting very, very ugly, substantially fed by NSW ICAC headline addicts.

In today’s supposedly respectable Financial Review, their Neil Chenoweth and Michaela Whitbourn are keen to rope in all of a similar ethnic background to Mr Obeid into the latest yarn, on the boned Nats candidate Richard Torbay.

  1. Attacking the Maronite Christians is a stupid move. These God fearing people are very solid and decent citizens. Their community has taken over a large number of former Catholic and State Schools as their numbers continue to grow significantly.

    Like any other community, there are a few that stray onto the wrong side of the law either because of greed or sheer idiocy.

    They can be dealt with appropriately within the criminal justice system.

    However, I object to the slandering of a whole community by what is supposed to be an independent commission against corruption.

    In the words of Christ, you hypocrite take the log out of your own eye before you mention the speck in your neighbour’s eye.

    Some members of ICAC need to be boned for sheer racism.

  3. Yes, Australian Catholics should be glad we took over their schools.
    The Khourys, Karouiz, Mokbels etc are all law abiding citizens. Not Australian law, but lets not get picky in these multicultural times.
