Herald Sun on the Aussie Beach Battles

THEY are blonde, tanned and wearing designer surfie labels, and they claim the beach as their own. Sarah, 20, and Melanie, 22, despise the Lebanese Australian community and are happy to say so.
They drove from nearby Engadine to wave the Australian flag at North Cronulla and make a statement against the Lebanese community.
"This is our beach and we're here to claim it back," Melanie said.
"You can't go to the beach without the Lebs yelling stuff out.
"Because of that we've come here to take it back."
Both young women say they will answer a text-message call to rally at Cronulla on Sunday and intimidate any Australians of Lebanese descent who dare to show up.
