SWORD IN HAND

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

WE agree with Hay­ley Bent (“Aus­tralians unite”, Gazette, Septem­ber 30) that there are many good Mus­lims; in­deed, they could be far bet­ter than we are.

The fact is, how­ever, that Is­lam has been marked by war mon­ger­ing since its in­cep­tion. It be­came a world re­li­gion by the sword, whereas Chris­tian­ity did so de­spite the sword.

Peace-loving Mus­lims are so de­spite their re­li­gion, not be­cause of it.

Car­son Street School re­ceived a spruce up when Lend Lease em­ploy­ees con­verged on the East Vic­to­ria Park school as part of their an­nual com­mu­nity day. Natalie Steel and An­drea Macrae are pic­tured putting the fin­ish­ing touches on a paint­ing job as part of a pro­gram that helps Lend Lease em­ploy­ees give some­thing back to their lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties. They were among 30 Lend Lease staff and con­trac­tors who spent the day gar­den­ing, lay­ing lawn, paint­ing and clean­ing at the school ,which is WA’s only Pri­mary Ed­u­ca­tion Support School.
