I think a muslim would have been a better choice and more "fashionable" :)

Ed Husic was elected to the seat of Chifley in western Sydney for the ALP in the election just finished. He is Australia's first Muslim member of parliament at the federal level. He says he is non-practicing.

I don't know what the above comment is meant to mean so do with this as you will.

In 2005 he stated "fear campaigns against Muslims in this country are un-Australian".
I agree.
