Muslim community still waiting for Abbott government's anti-terror funds
by Michael Bachelard
Muslim communities have not yet received any funds from the Abbott government to combat the lure of Islamic State recruiters, and neither the government nor community leaders can say how that money will be spent.
The failure has led to frustration with the Prime Minister Tony Abbott and his ministers who say the Muslim community were not doing enough to combat radicalisation of young people.
On Monday night, Trade Minister Andrew Robb said the leadership of the Muslim community, "the imams in particular ... should be doing a lot more to look after their community".
