PM Scott Morrison issued a statement to the Muslim community 'commemorating' the arrival of the month of Ramadhan. Unsurprisingly, he has taken the opportunity to continue the tradition of his predecessors by framing any engagement with Muslims through the lens of securitisation.
Ismail Alwahwah (Abu Anas) has been released from prison in Jordan today after serving a one-year sentence for publishing remarks on his Facebook account critical of the Jordanian regime.

Ismail Alwahwah, an Australian citizen and respected member of the Muslim community in Australia, has been subjected to physical and mental torture since his arrest at Amman Airport six months ago.
