If you were to watch most news programs today you could easily find yourself thinking that the migration of Muslims around the world is something new. This is, despite that fact that Muslims have been part of western landscapes for longer then many white citizens like myself have.
You might also assume, quite falsely that is, that terrorism is a uniquely Islamic problem, despite groups using ideologies ranging from fundamentalist Christianity, white nationalism, communism and even eco-terrorism over the years, as justification for their sickening acts.
Though indeed a small group of Islamic fundamentalists have been involved in a concerning number of attacks of late, the reality is that this small crazed minority make up the majority of news stories.
The stories of peace and patriotism that dominate the everyday lives of most Muslims, simply don’t sell advertising like terror does.
So for today’s show we are going to buck the trend and bring you just that. A hard working, deeply patriotic, peace loving Australian citizen, who also just happens to be Muslim.
