Some good news and some bad news about future issues.

The good news is that we’ll be coming out more frequently.

The downside is that editions will be much smaller. However, this means that we’ll be able to respond more swiftly on current affairs. 

And as Australian Muslims know full well, hardly a week goes by without something about Muslims overseas or in Oz making the headlines — and I don’t mean the Society Sections of the newspaper.  

Much as I’d love to keep bumper editions going this won’t be possible until we receive some funding. As you probably know we are ‘staffed’ by volunteers and receive no funding whatsoever.  

If this gentle reminder ‘Touches’ one of our more affluent government, or private sector institutions, and they reach for their cheque book—so be it.
