But it’s not who you follow, you can read comments posted on various articles yourself.
Muslims rarely call out muslims for terrorism related offences. They sit in silence.

Or is it because there are relatively few Muslims in prominent positions (other than Waleed Aly) that are public facing in Australia?

Do we give the politicians who are non-WASP/WASC a fair go at getting heard, or do we allow them to dominate the political discussion because those two groups are the dominant proportion of the Austalian population and we like a homogenous society more than a heterogeneous one?

Or, is it because Islam is a fractured as Christianity or Judaism is, but there is a need to present a coherent collective front that is a challenge when much is discussed in their religious context in languages other than English?

Remember that not all Muslims are from the Middle East, but some are from Indonesia or Bosnia and therefore don't always appear as Muslims to the majority.

For example, this piece from SBS on Australia's first Muslim MP:
https://www.sbs.com.au/topics/life/feature/faith-politics-australias-first-muslim-mp

He's from Bosnia rather than the Middle East or Indian Sub-continent, so looks like a WASP/WASC...

I got to meet some fantastic people in Kazakhstan last year, most of whom were Muslim. But as one said, “we are not very good Muslims”, meaning they weren’t necessarily active practioners, just like many people in Australia who call themselves Christians but might only go to Church for the occassional christening, wedding or funeral.

It’s worth checking out the following website - you might be surprised at just where the majority of Muslims live.

Would you really call Waleed prominent? A host of a very low rating show on a major network. I know he would love to think he is, but is he really?

Interestingly there are only slightly less muslims in India than Pakistan, but the % of the population is vastly different

Why is she good? I am not saying she is bad, but what has she alone achieved? To be fare most of our leaders come out pretty good when something bad happens, as they should. And she has admitted they need to tighten their gun laws. So why now?  The low life was able to go to NZ and get a gun licence and legally get these guns!  This is not USA.  If this happened here I am sure who ever was our Prime Minister at that time would face serious questions.  Yes I know she gave birth while in office.....  Just saying.   But this cold blooded mass murder is just a horrible thing for any country to go through.

No matter how much people might like to shift the blame for these type of crimes  to other things (religion, gun laws, upbringing, bullying in school, to name just a few), the only people at fault are the perpretators.

Queensland senator Fraser Anning has been egged while speaking to the media at a political meeting at Moorabbin in Melbourne's south-east.

Footage of the incident shows a young man watching Senator Anning from the sidelines before he starts filming with his mobile phone, and then smashes the egg on the back of the senator's head.

In response, Senator Anning swings two punches at the young man, at least one of which connects with the young man's head.

A staffer for Senator Anning then separates the senator from the young man, while supporters of the senator tackle his attacker to the ground.

The young man was later led away by police.

A Victoria Police spokesman said officers arrested a 17-year-old boy from Hampton who was released pending further inquiries.

A fundraising page has already been set up to collect donations to cover the teenager's legal fees and to buy "more eggs". :cup: :cup: :cup:


lol...more eggs..love it.  I,d chip in if it was for a lobotomy.. :cheers:

It is interesting to see the outrage and response by non Muslim Australians that someone would do this to people of the Muslim faith.

Yet when the roles are reversed you hear no outrage no outcry by anyone in the Muslim community, they stay silent.

  Fukcwits like this imbecile who is just another parasite feeding off the public purse and showing he is so far out of touch deserves a lot more than an egg on his hollow skull.  I,ll bet he wouldnt have the balls to stand in front of the families that had members killed and utter his crap!!

There’s thousands of Australians who live their life on the public purse that do and say things I don’t like. I don’t go assaulting them though

He can’t press charges...Unless he is a police officer.

im sure the teen can get the cops to

What i dont agree with is what was said since i have worked with a person who worships islam and came from kabul, i have seen the stuff he gets put through from people like fraiser anning but guess what the aged care home he works at they love him both staff and residents regardless of where he is from because he is kind and caring but yet gets painted by the same brush. punishing a group because of a few is all this is right now.

Just out of interest are you planning to put them in a chaff bag and drop them out at sea? Or hanging them 58 meters above George St? Or are you just hoping they all die of shame?

Or are those suggestions only reserved for women with whom hate preachers don’t agree with??

Bit hard to have the Senator charged with Assault when he is defending himself from someone that just assaulted him

but yet we cant do the same for our selfs in our own homes without being charged or even on the street where there is clear evidence of others throwing the first punch so why should a senator be treaded any diffrent for a role that they got given?
