Sept 2014: Q Society president Debbie Robinson rejects false claims by Australian National Imams Council (ANIC) that the Muslim jihadist group 'Islamic State' would be un-Islamic. Mrs Robinson calls upon the ANIC executive to sign and implement the Proposed Charter of Muslim Understanding. To retain credibility, ANIC needs to lead by example, embrace the charter and hereby make it clear that Islam in Australia has broken with its violence-inspiring scriptures, so often referenced by Muslim terrorist organisations. Attending interfaith meetings and issuing media releases claiming offence when Australian agencies respond to Islamic terrorism is counter-productive and only undermines ANIC's credibility.

Sept 2014: New video released: The ADF, Islam and Australian Values. Former ADF Intelligence Officer Bernard Gaynor presents Australians with an unfiltered insider view into the mindset of the current ADF leadership. Politically correct blindness as to the motivation of the enemy combined with a policy to accommodate the desires of minority pressure groups over traditional Australian values, increasingly confuses, alienates and endangers our men and women in uniform.
