Not surprised. Just pointing out the hypocrisy of current govt
policy. With all the attention on 'big bad Islam' and ignoring the
equally bad ideologies of other religious or pseudo religious
societies, Israel being one, it's only apparent that the one-sided
view is dangerous when you move to the next level of analysis:
religion based states vs secular states. The current trend here in
Australia is toward the former. For all the US bashing about the
evangelical movement, at least religious studies has been kept out of
state schools there, unlike here.
