I am eternally optimistic, and I know we can win the war against Islamophobia – not by force but through education, empathy and understanding. …More on the war against fear of the evil religion at The Star thanks to Mullah, pbuh….

Greens leader Christine Milne explains Greens senator Peter Whish-Wilson’s plea to stop “demonising” terrorists by calling them terrorists:

“Senator Whish-Wilson was describing a well-­understood part of counter-insurgency strategy: that extremists sometimes use the military intervention of outside countries as a tool to radicalism (sic) people,” she said in a statement.

Academic Richard Mulgan considers the dreadful cost of the Abbott government’s asylum seeker policies:

Stopping the boats has been a clear success for the Abbott government. Tony Abbott and Scott Morrison said they would stop the boats and, give or take the odd exception, they have.

We use that word because it is a very simple word to use and it demonises people.

Go ahead, then, senator. Let’s hear your alternatives.  (Tim Blair)
