Forget the Syrian Civil War for a moment. Even without the Sunnis and Shiites competing to give each other machete haircuts every sunny morning, there would still be a permanent Muslim refugee crisis.
The vast majority of civil wars over the last ten years have taken place in Muslim countries. Muslim countries are also some of the poorest in the world. And Muslim countries also have high birth rates.
Combine violence and poverty with a population boom and you get a permanent migration crisis.
Kirralie Smith Challenges Waleed Aly

SOME of the bravest people on earth are women. One of those is the gutsy Kirralie Smith who has today issued a public challenge to Waleed Aly.
My bet is Waleed Aly will fail to rise to the challenge. Some of the weakest and most cowardly people on earth are men.
Waleed will no doubt prefer to not acknowledge Kirralie Smith, who has confronted him with some home truths about himself. If past behaviour is any indication to future conduct he’ll choose to hide behind his TV studio and computer screen firewalls.
But he might surprise us all, and invite Kirralie Smith onto The Project for an honest and open debate about Islam - to address questions screaming out to be addressed. But don’t hold your breath.
Waleed Aly prefers to not be held to account. He uses his media platform to disseminate misleading diversions, not truth, which is a shame because he could do so much good with his talents and brilliance.
Waleed’s dissemination of conveniently cherry-picked facts and ’look-over-there’ model of opinion reveal a deep seated contempt for, and clever manipulation of, his audience and readership. To add to the insult, he has zero social media accounts, fire-walling himself further from direct public comment and accountability.
