Some Muslims do not share Australian values and would not integrate into the Australian community
A SECTION of Australia's Muslim community did not share Australian values and would not integrate into the Australian community, Prime Minister John Howard said today.
Mr Howard said the rest of the Muslim community needed to make sure these people did not have adverse consequences for all.
Speaking on the ABC's Four Corners program airing tonight, marking the fifth anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, he said he was concerned about the potential influence of some people on young Muslim men.
"There is a section of the Islamic population which will not integrate ... does have values and attitudes which are hostile to Australia's interests, and I have said that before," he said.
"And I would like the rest of the Islamic community to join the rest of the Australian community in making sure that the views and attitudes of that small minority do not have adverse consequences."
