Religious leaders across Australia have issued a message of love to Muslims, in response to a recent headline in the News Limited press misquoting former army chief Peter Leahy as saying “we’ll fight Islam for 100 years”.

Religious leaders across Australia have issued a message of love to Muslims, in what they hope will become a viral campaign to counter hatred, divisiveness and marginalisation.

The movement follows the unveiling of a proposed raft of new counter-terrorism laws by Prime Minister Tony Abbott, prompting concern from Islamic organisations that Muslims will be unfairly targeted.

The religious leaders issued a statement saying they will “love Muslims for 100 years” – a reference to a recent headline published by News Corp which misquoted former army chief Peter Leahy as saying “we’ll fight Islam [for] 100 years”.

“We believe people of Muslim faith are being unfairly smeared in the eyes of the Australian public,” the statement read.

“…The violence and values of extremists like ISIS are not representative of the vast majority of Muslim people in Australia, who are recognised better by their commitment to peace, community and mutual respect.”

The statement has signed by more than 150 members of the Christian, Jewish and other religious communities, including Rabbi Zalman Kastel.

Back in 2012, when she was part of the inaugural 100 Women of Influence list, she was General Manager commercial operations of agricultural company Elders in Adelaide.

After taking a redundancy from Elders in the same year, she then joined leasing firm FleetPartners as chief operating officer, and left that role a little earlier this year.

 Architectural plans for a mosque in Kalgoorlie-Boulder aim to incorporate Goldfields style in order to exist harmoniously in the local community.

The motion to build the place of worship was passed six votes to four after heated discussion at the packed council meeting.

Goldfields Islamic Community Centre co-founder Eric Wright told ABC Regional Drive said the mosque will reflect its mining locale.

"We're here to fit in, not stick out," Mr Wright said.

"It will look like a house of worship, I think it will compliment the area.

"If you look at the design we've actually put a minaret on the outside of the building.

"We got the design (for the minaret) from the Mining Hall of Fame and we've made it look like a mineshaft so it's going to complement the area and fit in just great."

Courage!

By Sister S Bemath

Many of us are poor imitations of what we ought to be . . .

It is a fact of life that all successful people have one trait in common—courage. Without it there is little hope for achievement and fulfilment. We can never be our true selves until we learn to be courageous. Courage enables us to face difficulty, danger or pain in a way that allows us to maintain control over a situation. We can build courage by identifying things that frighten or challenge us and thinking of strategies for coping with them. We can also build courage by remembering that nothing can harm us unless ALLAH wills it and nothing can benefit us unless ALLAH wills it. Many of us are poor imitations of what we ought to be, our actions often governed by other people's opinions—hardly a satisfactory way to control one's destiny.
