Defending Our Way of Life – Multiculturalism is our best defence
2005 - Volume 8 Number 6
Some commentators have suggested that “terrorism” is a problem arising out of the policy of “multiculturalism.” Yet the evidence suggests exactly the opposite. Criminal acts of terrorism occur when people become ostracized and oppressed and have no access to legitimate avenues of expressing their views.

A multicultural society which allows the peaceful expression of a diversity of opinions is the best antidote to extremism and terrorism.
