Sydneysiders more hostile towards Muslims than Melburnians

Research shows hostility towards Muslims is far more widespread in Sydney than in Melbourne due to a higher, more concentrated Islamic population and differing attitudes to social integration.
29 per cent of Sydneysiders hold a negative perception of Muslims, compared with just 15 per cent of Melburnians.
Speaking with Ross and John, author of the Mapping Social Cohesion Report, Professor Andrew Markus from Monash University, said Sydney’s ‘in-your-face’ media also played a part in attitudes.
"They have this sort of in-your-face media which really doesn't go down very well in Melbourne. People actually like a more reasoned and less in-your-face discussion," he said.
”One of the things that Victorians are distinctive for, and particularly Melburnians, is they probably work harder at the business of integration.
”We've got governments and we've got oppositions that agree on policies of multiculturalism.”
Professor Markus said Sydney also had at least a 25 per cent higher Muslim population compared to Melbourne, who lived in concentrated migrant communities. He said in Melbourne, the Muslim communities were more widely dispersed.
LISTEN: Professor Andrew Markus speaks with Ross and John:
With constant bickering over their own problems abroad and here(objection to Ham Sandwich and Christmas out of street signs etc) ,no wonder locals are afraid of Muslims in Australia. Attempts to overturn Australian ethos is abhorrent and bound to create hostilityaustin theodore Thursday 20 December, 2012 - 9:38 AM
I live in NSW and I find 2UE too offensive, except ross greenwood, (now that I don't trust the ABC) I have very little radio to listen to. so I've can take 3AW, Melbourne is not so red-neck like sydney, these red-necks are making sure of an ALP win, like the hard right teabags in the USA!niki Sunday 18 November, 2012 - 12:06 PM
