It's quite hard when you need team work.
It is a workplace. Muslims should get the same break time as everyone else. It is bizarre to cater to Muslims and their religion

The worst part is that refugees always whine and complain about their host country. They expect special treatment....especially if they are muslim. So in the end they will cause a drain on their host country and they will be cry babies on top of everything

There is no need to panic about the influx of Syrians.
Syria was a very rich country before the uprisings, with an incredibly sophisticated and opaque banking system that, some would say, was much more reliable than the Swiss banks (which, in the last 15 years or so, had been providing increasingly less protection and privacy for its customers against prying governmental agencies).
Unlike the bottom-of-the-barrel Afghans and Sri Lankans, which have nothing to offer Australia, a significant proportion of the Syrian refugees are actually people who enjoyed very high standards of living until civil war took over.
Many Syrian families escaping from Syria crossed the borders driving luxury European cars. Nevertheless, the UNHCR has confirmed that they are genuine refugees escaping a very violent and dangerous civil war.
Every since the uprisings began, a lot more than 140 BILLION Australian dollars has left Syria. Where is this money going?
I feel that Australia as a country should make every effort to welcome these Syrian refugees. Australia stands to benefit greatly from their unusual, innovative and imaginative banking and finance creativity. In addition, if we can attract even a small percentage of that missing AUD$ 140 BILLION, we would be doing very well, indeed.
See a Syrian, show your sweet smile!
This is rather tranparent. It is about recovering Aussie dollars, not about the high quality of the Syrians...which I seriously doubt. And i dont think peeps are going to fall for this. Immigration has been allowed to run wild and enough is enough.

Uh oh ! Watch out for jihad coming your way. The Christians are being slaughtered by Muslims in Syria.

Why would Australian be against Americans? By the way, gotta love the Australian accent!

In terms of standards of refugees, I'm hoping that the Syrian refugees will be at least of much higher quality than refugees from Afghanistan (main export = chemical from poppies) or Sri Lanka (main product = tea). Hopefully, the Syrian refugees can bring to Australia some of their skills in creative banking and flamboyant finance.
syrian exports chemical warfare and hairy women you idiot
syrian jordanian or iranian they are the same fanatical towelheads, their women are wearing a towel even when taking passport photo that is fanaticism

Australia only acts in the interests of foreign nations.
The government does not care about the country.
Labor and Liberal are both representing the UN, not Australia.

I look at all your comments and think have any of you ever read any history or even tried some research because if you did you will find that most of these immigrants you are talking about work and pay their taxes and have business operations and contribute to our economy, if they all leave Australia I wonder what will happen to this beautiful country with only people like you living in it? We might go back to the Stone Age because if you bothered to educate ourself you will find that our country is running because of people from all over the world!! Why don't you look up the ratio of what people like you have contributed to this country and what all the other people from all over the word have contributed and built in this country and I'm sure that will shut you up pretty quick!!
