Melissa Townsend from the Gold Coast News believes Pauline Hanson is more of a worry than the invading Mohammedans.
‘WE don’t want her here’.
That was the frank statement by the Gold Coast’s Islamic leader, Imam Imraan Husain, in response to revelations that Pauline Hanson was considering running for Gold Coast mayor.
The head of the Islamic Society of the Gold Coast said if the controversial former One Nation MP ran for the position and won, it would spell disaster for the city.
Earlier this year Ms Hanson came under fire for stipulating she would not sell her Coleyville home to a Muslim, but Imam Husain said no Muslim would want to buy her property anyway.
“We don’t want cloudy weather here on the Gold Coast, we want a clear forecast and sunshine all the time… she’s a storm,” he said.
A rather odd remark, that. Hanson a storm? Â Recently a high ranking Â imam Â personally Â disabused me that “nobody can stop Islam, Islam is like a tsunami…”
“We want level-headed people here, people who will promote our multiculturalism, people who will give everyone a fair go and people who will promote tolerance for diversity.
Islam is the replacement ideology for multiculturalism, tolerance and diversity.
“We want people to live in harmony and be happy, and I’m sure the Gold Coast would prefer people such as our current mayor, who has been very good to Muslims.
With Islam comes harmony & happiness? Â Millions of victims of Mohammedan terrorism around the world beg to differ….. just a few examples, here:
- Sweden: Attack on synagogue in MalmÃ¶
- Police in modern, moderate Indonesia tear down house church
- Mosque bomb injures 20 in Afghanistan
- Egypt: Thousands of Copts protest “collusion by state security services” after disappearance of priest’s wife
“We needed a cemetery and an Islamic school in Carrara, and the council was very good to us.”
More than 20,000 Middle-Eastern people visited the Gold Coast in the year ending March 2010, but Imam Husain said they could be put off if Ms Hanson became mayor.
Hundreds of thousands of Japanese used to visit the Gold Gold coast, Â spending Â a lot more than the Mohammedans ever will. Â They never asked for a Japanese cemetary or Â a Japanese school. Any idea why they now stay away?
“They enjoy our beautiful facilities here, and of course our mayor has been very accommodating to these tourists,” he said.
“These people are good spenders, but if they know of someone who is not so kind to them and has this biased attitude towards Muslims, then obviously they are going to look for some other destination.
“Emotionally, some people may say ‘that’s good, we don’t need these Muslims’, but practically it’s not good for the Gold Coast.”
Mariam Najibah, who is the head teacher at the Australian International Islamic College at Carrara, said it was a ‘free country’ and Ms Hanson could run if she liked.
“I wouldn’t vote for her because she doesn’t represent the whole community because of her biases,” she said.
