- خبر من مصادر إنجليزية.
استنكرت "الجمعية الإسلامية" بـ"نيوزيلاندا" التصريحات المسيئة التي أطلقها عضو البرلمان "ريتشار بروسر" في عموده الصحفي بمجلة Investigate Magazine؛ حيث وصف شباب المسلمين بالإرهابيين، مُطالِبًا بمنعهم من ركوب الطائرات بالخطوط الجوية الغربية؛ فقد كتب يقول: إذا كنت شابًّا عمرك يدور بين 19 و35، وإذا كنت مسلمًا، أو كنت تشبه المسلمين، أو كنت آتيًا من دولة إسلامية، فلا ينبغي أن تنتقل عبر خطوط الطيران الغربية.
وقد هاجم الإسلام في تصريحات أخرى مرددًا المعلومات المغلوطة التي تتحدث عن وضع المرأة السلبي في الإسلام، نافيًا أن يكون عنصريًّا أو عازمًا الانتقاد السلبي للإسلام.
وقد أعرب العديد من السياسيين - من بينهم رئيس الوزراء النيوزلاندي - عن انتقادهم لهذه التصريحات؛ حيث أكدوا أن غالبية المسلمين مسالمين وملتزمين بالقانون، في حين وصف "هون هاراويرا" - رئيس "حزب مانا" - هذه التصريحات المسيئة بالعنصرية والبعيدة عن الواقع؛ المصدر: شبكة الألوكة.

NZ First MP: Ban Muslims from flights
New Zealand First MP Richard Prosser has spoken out in defence of his "Wogistan" rant which has been slammed as racist by Muslim leaders and politicians.
In a column for Investigate Magazine, the Waimakariri list MP suggested young Muslims shouldn't be allowed to travel on Western airlines because 'most terrorists are Muslims".
He accepted that most Muslims are not terrorists, but said it's "equally undeniable" that "most terrorists are Muslims".
"If you are a young male, aged between say about 19 and about 35, and you're a Muslim, or you look like a Muslim, or you come from a Muslim country, then you are not welcome to travel on any of the West's airlines," he wrote.
Prime Minister John Key was "appalled" by the comments, while the New Zealand Muslim Association called them "senseless".
But in an interview with Newstalk ZB's political editor Barry Soper, Mr Prosser stood by his controversial stance.
He denied that the use of "Wogistan" was racist, citing mentions of it being a "mythical place", which could even have been "a real place".
"Look, people can read things into it if they want," he said.
"I have a particular style in my Investigate column which is, um, reasonably blunt, and I speak a lot of things that other people are talking about but won't necessarily say.
"I don't think it's anything derogatory particularly, I don't have any real time for the worst extreme elements of Islam who treat women in a poor fashion. So, I certainly think it's appropriate for me to make those comments."
Asked if he was tarring all young male Muslims with the same brush, Mr Prosser said it was a profiling policy that has made Israeli airline El Al "one of the safest airlines in the world".
NZ First Leader Winston Peters initially said there was "an element of truth' to what Mr Prosser wrote but that his MP had failed to balance his attack by acknowledging that the majority of Muslims were peaceful and law abiding.
In a subsequent statement, Mr Peters said Mr Prosser had "wrongfully impugned millions of law-abiding, peaceful Muslims" and the article did not represent the views of NZ First.
Mr Prosser said Mr Peters doesn't vet his columns, which he's been writing in Investigate for more than a decade, claiming they were separate from his MP duties and party policy.
He believed it was appropriate for him as an MP to make his views heard, saying: "This is what we are here for. We are here to represent and speak about the issues and concerns that people have."
Mana Party leader Hone Harawira said Mr Prosser's comments were racist, and without basis in fact.
"It's kinda like saying that no 19- to 35-year-old white guys should be allowed to go anywhere because they cause so many wars around the world."
