READER'S VIEW: Should we reopen war detention centres?

DURING the first and second world wars we here in Australia were concerned with the number of people who were loyal to their country of birth, from both Germany and Japan but had chosen this great country to reside in to make a better life for both themselves and their family. But when the declaration of war was announced these individuals were rounded up and confined to various camps around Australia, probably because the Australian Government were concerned about internal disruption and possible attacks on our local population and venues while we were at war with both of these countries.

Islam has declared war on the rest of the world and if our governments do not respond or listen to what is happening then these radicals and supporters of Islam, as they are doing now, will continue to kill the infidels. When a crime is committed here in Australian the police always are asking for support from the local population to pass on the most insignificant of information to help to solve the case. This information is not forthcoming from within the Islamic community when a cowardly attack on innocents has occurred. If detention centres were appropriate for both WW1 and II when we were at war, why is it not applicable now when Islam has declared war on the rest of the world? My sympathies to the French who have been affected.
