Muslims should join Australian anti-terrorism forces to root out extremists, AAustralia's foreign minister said

Moderate Muslims should join with government anti-terrorism forces to root out extremists among them, Australia's foreign minister said Friday.

In a speech delivered at the opening of an interfaith conference in Sydney, Foreign Minister Australia's Alexander Downer said the war on terror was "not a battle between Muslims and non-Muslims."

"This is a battle between tolerance and intolerance," Downer said in a prepared speech. "It is a battle we all share in because Muslims are as much the targets as the so-called Westerners." Islamic extremists wanted to plunge the world into a pre-modern era with no technology and no rights for women, and destroy moderate Muslim governments, Downer said.

Downer called on moderate Muslims to support government counterterrorism efforts, saying winning the war on terror involved military action and tough laws, reports the AP. I.L.
