LETTER: Anti-Muslim rant short on truth

THE latest effort (QT 8/7) in E Rowe, Marcoola's misinformation campaign to demonise our Muslim citizens falls down at the first hurdle.

E. Rowe uses the example of Sally Faulkner's experience in Lebanon to support the assertion that Islamic governments give men exclusive rights over the children of a marriage.

Unfortunately for E. Rowe, the parliament and government of Lebanon which makes the country's laws is dominated by Maronite and Orthodox Christians, note Christians. Christians have dominated the government and parliament since Lebanon's independence in 1943.

Sally Faulkner's husband suffered no repercussions because his children went to Lebanon with their mother's consent and, as Ms Faulkner has admitted, he has broken no Australian law in refusing to return them to Australia.

There are no custody orders in place because there have been no divorce proceedings.

In short, it has nothing to do with his religion.

Furthermore, he didn't forcibly kidnap them off an Australian street and assault a grandmother in the process.
