Australia's stand on terrorism and foreign fighters

A column in these pages on September 24 asserted that Australia's proposed counter-terrorism legislation is 'anti-Muslim'. That is wrong. Let's be clear: the Australian government is acting to disrupt a growing terrorist threat so Australians of all backgrounds remain free to go about their lives in safety.     ISIL and similar terrorist organisations have plainly, violently and repeatedly demonstrated the international danger they pose.
