Once again: there might be some moderate Muslims, but there is no moderate Islam. Only allah can sort them out. We cannot risk it.
- Pauline Hanson called for Muslims to be banned from entering Australia
- Follows knife attack in Sydney suburb of Minto police say was ISIS inspired
- Hanson appeared on Sunrise along with fellow senator Derryn Hinch
- She also rejected idea ‘lone wolf’ attackers were mentally unstable
Pauline Hanson has again called for Muslims to be banned from entering Australia and slammed the idea that ‘lone wolf’ terror attacks are carried out by people who are mentally ill.
The One Nation leader appeared on Sunrise along with fellow Senator Derryn Hinch on Monday, where they gave support to new anti-terror bills set to be introduced into Parliament this week.
‘We’ve seen that these refugees we’ve brought in are actually terrorists themselves, so let’s take a hard stance on this. We don’t know who these people are,’ she said.
‘There’s no sign saying I’m a good Muslim of I’m a bad Muslim. We have to start protecting ourselves and our country.’
Senator Hanson then reacted angrily when Sunrise presenter Natalie Barr pointed out that some recent attackers were mentally ill.
‘I don’t believe that. They are saying they have been radicalised, and that is the case. Have a look at what they’re teaching in the mosques.
‘That concerns me as well. Get tough in this country. I don’t want to see another Australian killed. What a load of rubbish.’
Senator Hanson reinforced her election pledge that banning Muslim people from migrating to Australia was the only thing that should be done.
Despite acknowledging that ‘a lot of Muslims are not terrorists’, she repeatedly made it clear that the Australian government must take a ‘hard line stance’ on the matter.
She called for the complete ban ‘because of the mess Australia is in’. The two anti-terror bills are set to be passed by the government in Parliament later this week.
On Sunday Ihsas Khan, 22, was charged at Parramatta local court with committing a terrorist attack and attempted murder after 59-year-old Wayne Greenhalg was stabbed multiple times in Minto, Sydney.
