HOWARD STRIKES OUT AT THE ISLAMISTS



On the tenth anniversary of his rise to power, the Australian PM noted that there is a problem with a fraction of Muslims immigrants, the Islamists: (hat tip: Ganesh)

"I do think there is this particular complication because there is a fragment which is utterly antagonistic to our kind of society, and that is a difficulty," Mr Howard told The Australian.

"You can't find any equivalent in Italian, or Greek, or Lebanese, or Chinese or Baltic immigration to Australia. There is no equivalent of raving on about jihad, but that is the major problem."

The Prime Minister also expressed concern about Muslim attitudes to women."I think some of the associated attitudes towards women (are) a problem," he said."For all the conservatism towards women and so forth within some of the Mediterranean cultures, it's as nothing compared with some of the more extreme attitudes.

As could be expected, some ran to the defense of Islamists BUT not all. It's all here.
