Islam and Australia (letter)


by Tom King

News Weekly, July 27, 2002
Sir,

In publishing Lee Kwan Yew's speech, "The threat to regional peace", News Weekly has provided the leadership and public service other media outlets avoid confronting.

The warning from one of the greatest statesmen of our times was balanced and reasoned, in that he particularised the "militants within Islam" as constituting the problem.

It was the French Grand Mufti who, in 1996, alerted us that the Islamic invasion of Australia had begun. We were to be "converted", he said. The question is, if we do not convert easily, what is the alternative?

We need to judiciously safeguard our remaining freedoms of expression, or it will transpire that relevant and appropriate comments on such matters will be vetoed by the likes of anti-discrimination legislation, recently contemplated in New South Wales.

Tom King,
Elanora, Qld
