Silly Aussie dhimmis. They’re manifesting their ignorance of Islam again. I’m confident that the Australian Muslim leaders will be only too happy to explain it all to them, and calm their fears. From the Herald Sun, with thanks to JE:
The poll of 502 people discovered:
ONE in three people are more fearful of Muslims since 9/11.
SEVENTY-ONE per cent say women in Islam are treated as inferior.
FIFTY-SIX per cent believe Muslims are unfairly discriminated against and two in three people believe Muslims should be allowed to wear religious dress in schools and workplaces.
ONLY a quarter of people say they understand Islam well.
The research summary states: “The results show a complex mix of feelings about Muslims in Australia.”
People aged between 18 and 29 are more likely to hold sympathetic views about Muslims, the research found.
Queenslanders and people in the over-56 age group felt most threatened by Islam, while Victorians and people in the 40 to 54 years age group felt they had the best understanding of the religion, according to the poll….
Melbourne Islamic cleric Sheik Fehmi Naji El-Imam expressed anger at the poll results, which showed widespread fear of the religion.
“It is not fair at all,” the sheik, who is general secretary of the Board of Imams of Victoria, said.
“They don’t know what they are talking about – they should know Muslims first before they pass opinions.”
