Australian pol to oppose Islamic immigration

When will an American politician dare to say this? Officials should proclaim a moratorium on all visa applications from Muslim countries and on all applications from Muslims coming from other places also, since there is no reliable way for American authorities to distinguish jihadists and potential jihadists from peaceful Muslims. Because this is not a racial issue, these restrictions should not apply to Christians and other non-Muslim citizens of those countries, although all should be subjected to reasonable scrutiny. Those who claim that such a measure is “Islamophobic” should be prepared to provide a workable way for immigration officials to distinguish jihadists from peaceful Muslims, or, if they cannot do so, should not impede basic steps the U.S. should take to protect itself. And Muslims entering from anywhere — Britain, France — should be questioned as to their adherence to Sharia and Islamic supremacism. This is not because anyone will expect honest answers, but so that answers proven false by the applicant’s subsequent activity can become grounds for deportation.

“Hanson to oppose Islamic immigration,” from AAP (thanks to Davida):

RIGHT-wing firebrand Pauline Hanson says she will run on similar policies to those that won her international notoriety a decade ago when she vies for a Queensland Senate seat at the upcoming election.

The main difference will be that this time the former fish and chip shop owner, who claims credit for forcing the Howard Government to adopt a harder line on immigration controls, will target Muslims.

“We need to have a look at our immigration levels and I’d like to have a look at putting a moratorium on any more Muslims coming into Australia,” she said today.

    She’s got the right idea, and I hope she’ll be elected for showing such common sense.

    I just wish that they’d do the same in the UK, instead of inviting non-British terrorists to come and live here at the taxpayers expense.

    Unfortunately, but simple…
    when that group of “islamophobes”, which also account for 81% of the population, vote on it, with their guns in close proximity as a backup message.
    Politicians get that message really quick when people are ready to lock `n load…it takes a lot for us to get there, but that threshold has just about been reached.

    I agree, Sheik. Pauline is unfortunately tainted due to her past forays into politics.

    The Christian Dems are actively campaigning to halt muslim immigration:

    CDP is actively working to put pressure on the Federal Government to review our Commonwealth Immigration Policy – to ensure the priority for Christians from all races and colours, especially from persecuted nations, as both immigrants and refugees.

    Secondly, we want Australian to adopt a ten year moratorium on Muslim immigration, so an assessment can be made on the social and political disharmony currently occurring in the Netherlands, France and the UK, so as to ensure we avoid making the same mistakes; and allow a decade for the Muslim leadership and community in Australia to reassess their situation so as to reject any attempt to establish a Muslim nation within our Australian nation.

    The Christian Democrats are well aware of the problems that unassimilated muslims can bring with them – I’ve attended meetings with them about just this issue.

    The problem is that for now they are a small group. The last state election in NSW did see them gain a larger share of the votes, and this is considered to be due to their stance on muslim immigration.

    A search on JW for “Fred Nile” will bring up a few articles on the Rev Fred Nile and the policies of the CDP.

    Pauline hasn’t got the intellect,but she has the guts!
    She is saying what everyone is afraid to say.

    I wish her a lot of luck!
    Maybe we all need guts more than brains.

    “Those who claim that such a measure is “Islamophobic” should be prepared to provide a workable way for immigration officials to distinguish jihadists from peaceful Muslims,…”

    ……the five words you need to know about Muslim immigrants….

    “Are they radical Muslims yet?….

    “”We need to have a look at our immigration levels and I’d like to have a look at putting a moratorium on any more Muslims coming into Australia,” she said today.”

    ….you need to look at what activities and damages have been caused by the Muslim Immigrants already allowed into the country to give you a clue as to what to look for if you let more Muslims in….more assaults, more rapes, more murders, intimidation of the general public, Muslims demands for Muslim superiority, increased civil disorder, constant threats to all who dare tell the truth about Islam, constant threats of physical violence, attempted forced conversions, demands for Shar’ia law over the laws of your country, threats of death for those Muslims who wish to convert to Christianity, threats of death to who refuse to become Muslim…..and so many more things to look for….

    Banning Muslim is a necessary policy that need immediate implementation…

    Well, Pauline Hanson has definitely got it right this time; Islam really is a threat.

    Many of us had a gut feeling that all might not be rosy with our multicultural immigration policies, but we were accused of being racist.
    Well, it seems Islam will likely prove to be the threat we were wary about naively inviting into our communities.

    Pauline Hanson was previously severely treated by our media for her racist statements, and she did make racists remarks, warning that Australians of the future will all have slanty eyes for example.
    But she might well have had a point as our previous Prime Minister, Paul Keating had a dream of an Asian Australia, and between 1984 and 1995 40 per cent of all migrants into this country were of Asian origin.
    She was vilified by our media, as if we Australians have no right to decide for ourselves whether we wanted the realization of Paul Keating’s dream of an Asian Australia.

    Pauline Hanson definitely has it right this time with Islam, though I wonder if she has much credibility left with the Australian public, who have been heavily PC indoctrinated by our leftist media.

    What does ‘Asian’ mean in Australia? Here, in the US, it tends to mean Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese, Filipino and other South East Asian, but somehow excludes Japanese and Indian, whereas, in Britain, it is an euphemism for Muslims. Does it have either of these meanings in Australia or a different one?

    Based on that, Paul Keatings sentiments may or may not have been anti-Australian, depending on whether Muslims were involved. If Australia took in a lot of people from South Vietnam for instance, that wouldn’t have been a problem. But from Indonesia or Lebanon, it would have been.

    Incidentally, how much does Australia’s immigration need to improve (other than ending Muslim immigration)? They did the right thing by canceling the visa of that Indian Jihadi Mohammed Hanif – even though he’s a media celebrity now in India, he was by no means innocent, and Australia is now rid of him?

    Gramfan, you said:

    Not one or the other. Rather, thinking, feeling and willing in dynamic balance, in the most dynamic equilibrium possible…

    Spencer said:

    Officials should proclaim a moratorium on all visa applications from Muslim countries, since there is no reliable way for American authorities to distinguish jihadists and potential jihadists from peaceful Muslims.

    That should be shouted from the rooftops.

    I would like to see Robert Spencer work this statement into some of his television and radio interviews if possible:

    Officials should proclaim a moratorium on all visa applications from Muslim countries, since there is no reliable way for American authorities to distinguish jihadists and potential jihadists from peaceful Muslims.

  12. says

    Some delicacy in Mr. Spencer’s rhetoric has obscured the logical conclusion of his reasonable proposal. He says: 1) stop giving visas to residents of Muslim-majority countries, except for Christians and other minority religions; and 2) stop giving visas (at least without some questions) to Muslim residents of countries that are not Muslim-majority. But in fact, the character of the visa applicant’s country of origin is irrelevant in clauses 1 and 2 above. The two statements can be combined into one by saying: do not grant visas to Muslims – period – or at least until the jihad is concluded. I believe exsgtbrown has been saying this for quite some time.

    With all respect, this would still allow in those who follow islam, and will use the freedom given by this approach, to enter and have a go at the next 9-11. This is going to happen, unless we stop allowing in those who follow the teachings in the quran.

    Islam must be outlawed, and all forms of following, teaching, or gathering of the followers be outlawed as well. If it reforms, again if, then it could be considered again for access to the west.

    Islam is the enemy.

    Infidel Pride, the Australian meaning of ‘Asian’ pretty much conforms to the U.S. meaning, except we include Japan and India.
    I don’t know the exact country of origin percentage breakdown of Australia’s Asian immigrants in the 1984 to 1995 period; however, I can tell you that most of those Asian immigrants have become splendid citizens and hardworking assets to Australia.
    We have had very little trouble from the majority with the exception of some Vietnamese and Chinese drug dealers; and of course the Lebanese Muslim crime gangs.
    Keating’s sentiments weren’t exactly anti-Australian, or at least not consciously on his part, although his policies were definitely against what the majority of Australians wanted.
    Rather, he was just very arrogant about implementing his vision of Australia’s ethnicity reflecting our geographical location, ie. Asian.
    He has some very odd ideas.
    Keating is a typical self-loathing, leftist, white Australian.
    As far as I know, he had no intention of flooding Australia with Muslims; that honor belongs to a previous Prime Minister, Malcolm Fraser, who out of a misplaced sentimentalism, allowed many Lebanese Muslims into Australia during the 1983 Lebanese civil war.
    As far as I know, Australia has never had many Pakistani immigrants.

    In NZ we have a similar definition of ‘Asian’ – it wouldn’t include middle eastern people. Most of the fairly large influx of mainly Chinese and Korean Asians here are hardworking, incredibly high achieving and definitely outshining caucasian Kiwis in many fields. They are usually Christian or Buddhist and pro-democratic.

    So Australia and NZ might have an Asian-trending ethnic mix in the long term, but only racists worry about that.

    I just wish people would wake up to islamism instead. Unfortunately Hanson is so tainted that she’ll probably put people off learning about the threat of jihad and islamism.
