Problematical Otherness

Australians have their taxes spent on people who say such things as this:

in Australia, Muslim identity is increasingly constructed as the problematic (Orientalist) Other. The post-September 11 period has reinforced this ... The juxtaposition of faith with apocalyptic violence in the 'war against terrorism' has only deepened this connection and cultural Othering of Islam and Muslims.
Michael Humphrey, the head of the school of sociology at the University of NSW.

Apart from anything else, imagine having to listen to an entire lecture, 45 minutes of such language.
