READER'S VIEW: Why prejudice against Islam and not others?

THE police forces in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria conduct dawn raids on so called suspected terrorists involving hundreds of officers and costing untold millions and all but one or two of those taken to the cells are released without charge.

Because they have done nothing wrong.

These same police forces stand idly by when racist elements hold rallies protesting the construction of a Mosque.

To me and many others these protesters are inciting racist hatred, a criminal offence, and should be charged.

Why are they not being charged?

Church attendance is down to around 8% of the population in this country and the number of Australians who claim no religious beliefs is around 30%.

We are becoming a godless nation.

So why the prejudice against Islam?

If these same protesters were standing outside the site of a proposed Synagogue or Church I'll bet they'd be shown the cells quick smart.
