Mason, Victoria and Poynting, Scott (2006) "Tolerance, freedom, justice and peace?":Britain, Australia and anti-muslim racism since 11 September 2001. Journal of Intercultural Studies, 27 (4). pp. 365-391. ISSN 1469-9540Full text not available from this repository.
Since 11 September 2001, Muslim minorities have experienced intensive "othering" in "Western" countries, above all in those US-led anglophone nations which invaded Afghanistan and Iraq to prosecute their "war on terror". This paper examines the cases of Britain and Australia, where whole communities of Muslims have been criminalised as "evil" and a "fifth column" enemy within by media, politicians, the security services and the criminal justice system. Although constituted by disparate ethnic groups, the targeted communities in each of these nations have experienced similar treatment in the State's anti-terrorist measures, as well as ideological responses and everyday racism, making comparable the two cases.
