The first is a response by Waleed Aly, a lawyer; political academic and political and sports commentator; journalist; musician; husband; father; and panel member on Channel 10's 'the Project', I first became acquainted with Waleed when he was a panel member of Salaam Café. Salaam Café originated in community television in Melbourne, then had a couple of seasons on SBS. Waleed grew up and was educated in Melbourne, he recently featured on Julia Zamiro's ABC program ...... . Highly intelligent, Waleed grew up and was educated in Melbourne; he is also a devout and practising Muslim.
I always follow Waleed's writing in the Age and it is always pertinent and thought provoking. One of my friend's from teaching days at TAFE, Penny, this week shared a video segment of Waleed speaking on 'The Project' on Facebook. Once again it was pertinent and thought provoking, this time in providing a deeper and more lateral lens through which to consider our responses in the Post Paris environment (and Beirut and more) in which we find ourselves.
