    I live in an area where there are few muslims. I only know two personally. Both agree with what radical islam is trying to do but disagree with most of the methodology. Obviously, that is a meaningless comment from a standpoint of statistics but it helps understand how at least some muslims view the whole thing. In other words, it may be like an iceberg with just the tip showing above the water so far.

    A reasonable and educated person in Australia would not equate their actions with all Australian Muslims.
    Yes, we know. Not all Muslims are rapists, supports terrorists, want Shariah law, etc. But a significant number of them do, and therein lies the problems.

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I wouldn't know either. I was only pointing out that I don't think the argument you were making was, in fact, an actual rebuttal. Most folks who keep abreast have heard of the Sydney Gang Rapes, but it's easy to confuse familiar stories with probability; the two are not equivalent.

    You'd be wrong. Muslims are "over-represented" in crime rates. Crime and gangs: the path to battle for Australia's Islamist radicals | Reuters
