The Lesson of Tariq Ramadan 

Professor Tariq Ramadan and the ABC.

What a great mix?

"Religion was not Mohamed Merah's problem - nor was his politics. A French citizen frustrated at being unable to find his place, to give his life dignity and meaning in his own country, he would find two political causes through which he could articulate his distress: Afghanistan and Palestine. He attacked symbols like the army, and killed Jews, Christians and Muslims without distinction."


Not according to the majority of those whose comments are published below the article.

Last week it was the editor of the Guardian. This week the ABC. Next week?
