Federal election 2016: $10m for Islamic guests of Turnbull

Federal election 2016: $10m for Islamic guests of Turnbull, by Rick Morton.

The Islamic leaders Malcolm Turnbull invited to dinner who variously espouse anti-gay, anti-women, anti-West and even radical views have taken in almost $10 million in government grants in the past year to promote “social cohesion”.

Hello! The nature of Islam.

The Lebanese Muslim Association, which took a public stance in refusing to become involved in the former Abbott government’s ­program to counter violent ­extremism, received about $2m in government funds in 2014 and ­several “community development and participation” grants from the Department of Social Services last year.

And so on.
