I do not have a problem with Australian Muslims generally, however, I do have a problem with ISLAM and in particular Shariah Law. The doctrines they adhere to are violence, intolerance, death, paedophilia, slavery, and submission of women as inferior to men. They will not accept our laws, integrate into Australian society, respect our women, or contribute to our society.
The second issue is our Government has opened it’s arms to Islam and is defending them against the rest of Australia or anyone that dares to have views against Islam. A case in point is Dutch MP Geert Wilders is founder and leader of the Party for Freedom which is the fourth-largest political party in the Netherlands. Neither the Party of Freedom nor the Dutch Government is a proscribed terrorist organisation. Mr Wilders was to have given public speeches in Sydney and Melbourne in the next two weeks. He applied for a visa in August. Normally a visa application from a Dutch citizen is processed in three days. But when August turned into October, with still no word from the Australian embassy, Wilders was obliged to cancel.
Yesterday morning, the Sydney Morning Herald revealed Wilders was about to cancel his visit and cited stonewalling by the Minister for Immigration, Chris Bowen.
Today, unbelievably Bowen announced: “I have decided not to intervene to deny him a visa …”
This from a minister who let a visa application sit from August to October, waited until after Wilders had cancelled his trip, and the organisers of the visit had lost thousands of dollars, to decide “not to intervene”.
This is another disgraceful act from the Gillard regime. In fact Mr Bowen allowed Hizb ut-Tahrir leader Taji Mustafa entering Australia, even though his party is banned in most European and middle East countries.

QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE
Visa: Taji Mustafa
Monday, 17 September 2012
Ms JULIE BISHOP (Curtin—Deputy Leader of the Opposition) (14:07): My question is to the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship. I remind the minister that the government granted a visa to hate-preacher Taji Mustafa to speak at the Hizb ut-Tahrir conference yesterday, despite the coalition requesting on numerous occasions, and again last week, that he not do so. I also remind the minister that he ruled out revoking the visa yesterday. Will the minister explain why the government allows preachers of hate into our country?
Mr BOWEN (McMahon—Minister for Immigration and Citizenship) (14:07): I thank the honourable member for her question. The question goes to an invitation from an organisation known as HUT for a conference that was held yesterday. HUT has not been proscribed in Australia and nor has it been proscribed in the United States or the United Kingdom.
Mr Pyne: Why not?
Mr BOWEN: When the honourable Manager of Opposition Business asks why it has not been proscribed, he might want to check with the honourable member for Berowra, who said in 2007, when he was Attorney-General, that it should not be proscribed.
The situation is that this entry permit was issued in accordance with the normal procedures for British nationals. I refer the honourable member to the normal procedures that apply. This individual was not on the movement alert list because he is not speaking at an organisation that is proscribed in Australia, and nor is it proscribed in like-minded countries.
And yet when it came to a Dutch MP and leader of the 4th largest Political Power in Netherlands, the decision to grant his visa was delayed 2 months before eventually being granted when Mr Wilders was forced to postpone his visit.
It is strange that an Australian Minister is supporting a organisation, which in August 2002, HT in Denmark reportedly offered the equivalent of pound stg. 25,000 to anyone who killed a prominent Danish Jew, producing a hit list of between 15 and 25 leading members of Denmark’s Jewish community. The leader of HT in Denmark, Fadi Ahmad Abdel Latif, was convicted of incitement to racial hatred for distributing a leaflet urging people to “kill them, kill the Jews wherever you find them”.
Mr Bowen’s treatment of the Geert Wilders visa application was appalling and at a time when Labor are spruiking for votes, he obviously is going for the Islamic votes. This will come back to bite him, as Muslims that support HT and support Shariah Law, do not recognise Australian Government and refuse to vote for an illegal Government – illegal as far as Shariah Law is concerned.
We the people of Australia must remember this and make it known to all that the Gillard regime has aligned themselves with the Shariah Islamic community and we must vote with the obstinance of Aussies who are fighting for Democracy
