Muslims in Australia

Click Here: ninemsn.com.au – Muslims in Australia

Earlier this year, Sunday brought you a story about an extraordinary gathering in Canberra. It was called Australia Deliberates. A cross-section of Australians from right across the country, 330 men and women, got together for a long weekend.They gathered to talk about the so-called “problem” of Muslims in Australia, sparked by the infamous Cronulla riots, the bombings of 9/11 and Bali and London…Well, after that meeting (and two years of research by social scientists), Issues Deliberation Australia has released their report, with a one-hour documentary called Between the Divide.Now, while our political leaders like to insist that Australians are not racist, especially at election time, the report (out this week) concludes that when it comes to Muslim/non-Muslim relations, we are racist.
