trouble down under

Funny how some things aren't covered very much in the news... like racism against people of Middle Eastern descent.

Riots have broken out in Sydney, with reports saying that tensions were started by white supremecist groups sending text messages calling for violence in response to alleged incident involving two Lebanese-Australian youth and volunteer lifeguards. Mobs of people began attacking any person of Middle Eastern descent (mostly Lebanese) they could get their hands on. In response, groups of Middle Eastern youth armed themselves and began fighting back.
