Instead of stating you can be a good Australian and a good Muslim at the same time, he’s somehow throwing Islam under the bus and that’s where he got in trouble, muslims around the world follow sharia law every day of their lives when they pray, when they fast. There is no inherent conflict being a law-abiding Australian or American and practicing Islam. That’s a false premise.
The problem comes when you look at a dichotomy between being an Australian or an American and being a Muslim. We don’t see a dichotomy, we see that, in fact, the American-Muslim community is the prime defender of the U.S. Constitution. We see no conflict between Islamic beliefs and practices and living as a productive, contributing citizen whether it’s in Australia or America.
This is an extremely old issue that has been circulated endlessly on anti-Muslim hate sites and it’s a bit surprising to see an elected official promoting these kinds of Islamophobic smears.

I think it is symptomatic of the overall rise of anti-Muslim sentiment in our society. We saw a multitude of these incidents after the San Bernardino (California) shootings. I think these incidents will only increase, unfortunately, it's this whole thing where the flight crew is uncomfortable or the passengers are uncomfortable. Why are they uncomfortable? Because of a perceived faith and ethnicity that leads to them being thrown off planes. It's very troubling.
We are operating in an atmosphere of hysteria and fear, i have never seen it like this, not even after 9/11.

It’s been our experience that any time a Muslim community anywhere seeks to expand or establish a mosque or some other kind of institution, there will be some type of opposition, when you scratch the surface, often there is a tremendous level of bigotry and stereotyping in the opposition.
