In Australia, the Abbott government is increasingly fanning the flames of  religious and social intolerance with the rhetoric around “home-grown terrorism.” Not to mention devoting close to $1 billion to combating it.

But we ignore the anger that is generated by our treatment of refugees at our peril. These boats are the real recruiting ground for ISIS.
