“Wilders’ views have no relevance in Australia.”
Dutch MP Wilders anti-Islam warnings dismissed–World News Australia
Is it ignorance and stupidity or is it treason? Yet another unelected Labor stooge appointed by Jooliar Gillard dumps on Geert Wilders. Â AGÂ Mark Dreyfus Â will have to answer to a higher authority.
- Meanwhile, Â the usual suspects are turning up the heat: Anti-Wilders campaign turns anti-Jewish
Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus has dismissed warnings by a
controversial Dutch politician that Australia needs to learn from Europe and be vigilant of Islam by not allowing the mass immigration of Muslim people.
Geert Wilders, the leader of the Party for Freedom that holds the balance of power in the Dutch parliament, made the comment ahead of his visit to Australia next week.
Mr Wilders says he wants to warn Australia against allowing the mass immigration of people from Muslim countries because Islam and freedom are incompatible.
But, speaking to the ABC, Mr Dreyfus says Mr Wilders’ views have no relevance in Australia.
“We’re a long established democracy with successful multiculturalism. We’re also a country with a long standing commitment to free speech and robust political debate. Mr Wilders is free to come and express his views here in Australia, but I’m equally free to condemn them and the government does condemn the views that he expressed and I imagine he’s going to be expressing during his speaking tour here in Australia.”
