Australia's Grand Mufti is right

Invading Iraq and killing up to 1.5 m Iraqis was, as we pointed out in 
our demonstrations against the Iraq War in 2003, always going to produce 
a backlash. It has, and this mirror of Western barbarity called ISIS is 
now wreaking some destruction in the West, although its main victims 
remain Muslims in Iraq and Syria. Far from being condemned, the Grand 
Mufti of Australia deserves our support for pointing out some of the 
Western drivers behind these terrorist attacks. More of the same - 
bombings, racism, xenophobia, locking up people without evidence, 
closing the borders - will only strengthen support for ISIS.
