Laundy: if you’re concerned about Islam you’re ‘not very well informed’


Washing dirty Laundy…

Washing dirty Laundy…

Craig Laundy is the member for Reid, an electorate which encompasses some of the populous Muslim areas in Sydney.

He seems to believe that the less one knows about Islam, the more concerned one might be:

Mr Laundy, a former publican from Sydney’s culturally diverse inner-west, said the vast majority of inflammatory opinions about Islam and Muslims came from people who were “not well informed” and their views were “wrong”.

How are they wrong?

Although he acknowledged greater “tension” in the community following recent terrorist attacks, Mr Laundy said Australians should “come together in times of challenge, not fall apart”.

It’s not Australians that are dividing us, it is the supremacist and segregationist doctrines of Islam…

“People that dive into this debate and say controversial things, I would argue, the vast majority are speaking from a position that is not well informed,” Mr Laundy told ABC Radio.

Maybe tell that to Robert Spencer, who knows more about Islam than most Muslims…

“My job … is to enter the debate, knowing the background and the community, engaging and explaining to Australia the challenges that these communities actually face. (source)

And propping up the Muslim vote, er, I mean…

As usual on the subject of the I-word, Laundy is 100% wrong. The reality is that the more one learns about Islam, the more concerned one becomes. The ignorant and ‘not well informed’ are the ones likely to say that Islam is a Religion of Peace, and believe all the kumbaya crap spouted by the ABC and Fairfax.

But when some of us in the West take time to listen to the Friday sermons from the mosques and read the Qur’an and visit websites like Islam Q&A which gives a picture of Islam far closer to the truth, then we are likely to start getting worried.

But here’s an idea for Craig Laundry-list: maybe if Muslims stopped murdering people in France and San Bernardino and a thousand other places, shouting ‘Allahu akbar‘ (Allah is greatest) and justifying it on the Qur’an or the actions of Muhammad, there wouldn’t be any cause for ‘inflammatory opinions’, hmm?
