'Anti-Islam party to contest next election'


AN anti-Islam party based on the hardline views of Dutch politician Geert Wilders plans to field candidates at the next federal election, raising fears among moderate Muslims of a rise in extremism.


Mr Wilders, an influential far-right figure expected to shape the results of this year’s European elections, told followers in a video message that the Australian Liberty Alliance was being formed to “offer civil minded Australians fresh political vision and better policies”.

Policies advocated by Wilders’ Party for Freedom include deporting immigrants convicted of a crime and stopping all immigration from Islamic countries.

“Many of you are disappointed by current political parties and have had enough of politicians who sell our Western civilisation,” Mr Wilders said in his video. “Like you, good people in Europe, America, Canada have had enough of politicians who don’t share our values and foolishly declare all cultures are equal, and who lack the courage to speak the truth and say that Islam is the biggest threat to freedom today.”

Australian Liberty Alliance was registered as a not-for-profit business last month by Debbie Robinson, the president of the Q Society, an anti-Islam think tank that was responsible for bringing Mr Wilders to Australia last year. The party will be headquartered in Western Australia and is expected to be launched by Mr Wilders early next year. It is yet to be registered as a political party with the Australian Electoral Commission.

Ms Robinson said she intended to stand as a candidate.

Islamic Friendship Association of Australia spokesman Keysar Trad urged Muslims to ignore the fledgling party, warning it would “galvanise hardliners” on both sides of the debate.

For Chip Le Grand, Keysar Trad must be a “softliner”, LOL!

“The extremists within our community love to see something like this,” Mr Trad said. “All this does is create further division.”


Human Rights Commissioner Tim Wilson said despite Australia’s implied constitutional protection of political speech, any party had a responsibility not to “inflame prejudice”.

Tim Wilson disappoints. No one “inflames prejudice”, the Q-Society informs about Islam. The people of the Q-Society know that if Islam takes over, our future is bleak.

“Australia had Hansonism and saw it for its shallowness and flaws, and I think people will see exactly the same thing with Wilders,” Mr Wilson said.

Mr Wilson is deluded.

Q Society spokesman Andrew Horwood said the party would have no formal relationship with either the Q Society or Mr Wilders.

He said the party would be secular, conservative and campaign openly against Islam. “Australia is a different country to The Netherlands but we will be absolutely fearless in saying we don’t believe Islam is good for this country,” Mr Horwood said.

  1. Personally I’m all for going back to the ‘white Australia’ policy. Even some Eastern Europeans should be barred from entering Australia as their ethnic outlook on other EU neighbours is pretty disgusting, i.e. Croatians.

    I think it’s high time that Australians are listened to instead of shunted into the corner and ignored. This will blow up in the faces of pollies in years to come.

  2. Chip le Grand is a dolt. He is extremely doltish and I fear for my moderate-minded children if they are exposed to his extremist views should they read the Australian newspaper.

    As for Tim wilson, isn’t he gay? If so, he might like to ponder about prejudice-inflaming activity and its source. But it looks as if the extreme PC of the HRC has got to him already.

    Hanson’s “flaws”? Every party has them, while “shallowness” is a feature of every political party we have, all with their heads in the sand.

    It looks as if all these people want no impediments whatsoever to be erected against the imposition of sharia law in Australia.
