When the Islamic State made a terrible wave of murders throughout Europe in 2015 and 2016, the group's sympathizers have never avoided defending the killing of people who said they were "infidels". Living in Western societies, they argued, Westerners were by default reasonable targets.
On Friday, following a devastating attack on two mosques in New Zealand in Christchurch, an Australian senator showed that the justifications of some far-right ideologues may seem strangely similar when Muslims are the victims. Muslims, the extreme right-wing independent Queensland senator, Fraser Anning, said that "they may have been the victims today, they are usually the perpetrators".
Anning said he was "completely against any form of violence" and condemned the actions.

While Anning did not say so explicitly, his comments still implied that Muslims had some responsibility for the Friday shootings due to Muslim actions elsewhere.
"The real cause of bloodshed in New Zealand The roads today are the immigration program that allowed Muslim fanatics to emigrate to New Zealand in the first place," Anning said in a written statement
" New Zealand, as the & # 39 ; Australia is home to people of all creeds, cultures and backgrounds – there is absolutely no place in any of our countries for the hatred and intolerance it has caused or this extremist and terrorist violence and we condemn it ", continued Morrison.
Former prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, said Anning was a disgrace to the Senate and what is worse about spreading hatred and turning Australians into one against the other exactly what the terrorists want. "
Anning suffered sharp criticism from his colleagues, especially after resorting to a language that recalls the Nazi description of the Holocaust when he asked for a" final solution to the problem of immigration "
