Anti-Islam group under fire over leaflet drop
The group which plans to host a visit to Australia by controversial Dutch politician Geert Wilders is being accused of distributing anti-Islamic leaflets to letterboxes in Victoria.
It is not the first time the Q Society has been accused of using letter drops to spread bigotry.
In big red lettering the leaflet warns "SAVE OUR SCHOOLS - BE AWARE the Australian Government is preferencing and supporting Islamic faith, history and culture in schools".
The flyer landed in letterboxes on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula earlier this week.
Mount Eliza resident Judy, who does not want her full name to be used, says the leaflet has been widely distributed in her neighbourhood and she is incensed.
"This got my back up. I'm feeling that it's inflaming the general public and I don't think that's the right way to go," she said.
"The flyer is definitely anti-Islamic. That's my impression.
"Because it says down further, 'When less than 3 per cent of Australia's population is Muslim, why are we allowing the Australian Government to support this?'."
On its website, the Q Society says Australia should be based on Judeo-Christian values and what it calls the "Islamisation of Australia" is its call to arms. (continue reading...)
