THE Liberal senator accused of supporting a self-confessed Islamophobic Dutch politician has asked a Sydney Muslim to ''publicly denounce'' fundamentalist Islam before he corresponded with him.
Yesterday, more evidence of Senator Bernardi's anti-Islamic views were revealed when the online Muslim forum muslimvillage.com published a letter from the senator to a Sydney Muslim.
Senator Bernardi was responding to concerns expressed by the man about his comments regarding Islam. In the letter he declared Islam had been linked with hate speech, terrorism, gang rapes, racism, segregation and isolationism.
He wrote: ''You have identified yourself as an Australian Muslim. I would be interested to know if you subscribe to fundamentalist Islamic practices.

Some of allah's anti-Kuffar views, which "The Age" apparently ignores:
When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection. (Sura 9:29)
