Muslim leaders lash out at Jacqui Lambie and Cory Bernardi
by Heath Aston, Latika Bourke, and Nicole Hasham
Muslim leaders say Cory Bernardi and Jacqui Lambie are assisting the Islamic State to recruit potential terrorists in Australia with their "divisive and inflammatory" statements on burqas and sharia.
As Prime Minister Tony Abbott lauded Muslim arrivals who wanted to "join us, not change us", the maverick Liberal and Palmer United Party senators both issued calls to "ban the burqa" under the cover of Thursday's anti-terrorism raids.
Senator Lambie this week told adherents of sharia to "pack their bags" and get out of Australia.
