    Re: Islamist terrorist takes 13 hostages in Australia

    Instead of the ignorance and hatemongering towards all Muslims because of the actions of zealous religious extremists, Australians are coming out in support of fellow Australians who fear a backlash from racists.

    #illridewithyou: support for Muslim Australians takes off following Sydney siege

    A hashtag showing support for Muslim Australians has taken off on social media following a siege at the Lindt cafe in Sydney today.

    #illridewithyou is trending worldwide on Twitter, rising by hundreds of tweets per minute since it began this morning

    702 ABC Sydney have had calls from Muslim listeners who say they are too scared to ride on public transport at the moment.

    The hashtag appears to have come from a tweet from a woman who was riding on a train in Sydney, who noticed a Muslim woman quietly take off her head covering.

    The woman said: "No, if you want to wear it, then wear it. I'll walk with you."

    Another woman took to Twitter and wrote: "If you reg take the bus b/w Coogee/Martin PL, wear religious attire, &don't feel safe alone: I'll ride with you. @me for schedule."

    The woman then suggested "maybe start a hashtag? What's in #illridewithyou?"

    Take a look at some of the tweets:

    "Dear assailant: you lose. Dear racists exploiting a tense situation: you lose. Dear real Australians: you win! #illridewithyou"

    "This is my Australia. Being a Muslim this hashtag is the best thing happened today. I Love You Australia. #illridewithyou"

    "The #illridewithyou campaign makes you feel truly proud to be an Australian. Let's greet all Muslim citizens tomorrow with a smile."

    "Australians offer to go with Muslim Australians in public places if they fear racist backlash #illridewithyou So much better than bigotry"

    "Just thinking of many proud moments Ive had as an Aussie seeing our country band together beyond hate is one of the proudest #illridewithyou"

    "Illridewithyou: We will not turn on each other. We will not give terror organisations what they want. http://bit.ly/1wvxGXz"

    Sure, some hostages might die that way. But terrorists will think twice in the future knowing that your government will never give into them and WILL kill them.

    Would probably save many potential hostages lives down the road.
    The hostages family doesn't care if they Negotiate by meeting his dumb commands, as long as they get their family back alive. Should be a case by case basis.

    That's pretty cool...And props to the Grand Mufti that Don posted earlier...That is what needs to be done by Muslim leaders more if they truly want to be separated from the nuts.

    Muslims are not a " race " so the charge of racism doesn't apply.

    I'm sure its being used more for its negative connotation than anything else.

    As far as the non Muslim Australians are concerned they have a right to be upset.

    It was their leaders that embarked upon the very same initiative of Multi-culturalism thats back fired in Europe.

    That initiative introduced a level of radical extremism that they never signed up for.
