“ISIS are no friends to Muslim, by any stretch of the imagination.”
Sociologist and sometime Mamamia columnist Susan Carland has spoken out strongly in defence of the Muslim community, declaring that “ISIS are no friends” to Muslims.
Just hours before her husband Waleed Aly launched a scathing attack on the terrorist “b****rds” who carried out Friday’s terror attacks in Paris, Carland appeared on Studio 10 to explain the critical difference between Islam and extremism.
“ISIS are no friends to Muslim, by any stretch of the imagination,” Carland said on the Channel 10 program.
“And so it’s really important that we never fall into the trap of thinking this is about Muslims against other people.”

Carland, an academic and former Muslim Australian of the year, also warned of the dangers created by viewing the world in black-and-white terms.
“ISIS have openly spoken about wanting to eliminate the grey area; they want a world that is black and white, that is us and them, that is good and evil as far as they define it,” the 35-year-old Melbournian said.
