Australia: When did we last have immigrants warning we’d lose their loyalty in a foreign conflict?

In past wars we’ve been assured that immigrants from the lands we’re fighting in are loyal to their new country. The internment of so-called “alien immigrants” has been ritually denounced as an absurd and offensive overreaction.

But many Muslim spokesmen now don’t assure us of the loyalty of their followers but warn of – or threaten – the very opposite. As I wrote a month ago:

On Wednesday, we woke up to news of another Islamic State beheading, this time of Stephen Sotloff…

And that very day Muslim leaders again put out a statement condemning … Tony Abbott.

This time, it was from the Australian National Imams Council… Again, it blamed the West for jihadism: “One of the main causative factor (sic) for local radicalisation in the West has been the western governments’ military involvement in the Middle East.”…

And there was this warning: “If the Australian Government is serious about reducing the terror threat locally, then it must review its foreign policy decisions with regard to this region.”…

That sounds like an outrageous threat. Name one other ethnic or religious group here that warns Australia to change its foreign policies or face violence from its members.
