Here's a job for some real vilification-busters.
Our Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission was set up to prosecute vilification. It takes people to court for saying offensive things about Australia's newer ethnicities, and its oldest. The rest of us can look after ourselves.
Wahabism promotes hatred of Jews and Christians (and, by implication, other infidels not yet noticed in the Saudi seminaries) by changing its version of the Koran for that precise purpose.
Guide us to the straight path, / The path of those whom You have favored, / Not of those who have incurred Your wrath, / Nor of those who have gone astray.
Saudi money promotes the use of the Wahabi Koran in education and proselytising, so promoting racial and religious hatred.
The situation in Australia? Go for it, HREOC.
