Why Isn't This News? Howard Speaks Out

One might think that with an American media so attuned to listening to what our friends, allies and even enemies in the International community have to say, we'd see more than a handful of Google News references to a recent exchange between a radio show caller and the Australian Prime Minister John Howard.

"There is a section, a small section of the Islamic population, and I say a small section, which is very resistant to integration." "Fully integrating means accepting Australian values, it means learning as rapidly as you can the English language if you don't already speak it," ..."And it means understanding that in certain areas, such as the equality of men and women ... people who come from societies where women are treated in an inferior fashion have got to learn very quickly that that is not the case in Australia."

If we hear anything, I suspect it'll be more about the moderate Muslim groups and government advisors now condemning the speech.Meanwhile, Michelle Malkin brings you up to speed on the latest regarding the San Francisco road rage incident.
