They want to ban burqas, freeze Muslim immigration and end Australia’s “failed experiment” with multiculturalism.
The proudly anti-Islam Australian Liberty Alliance — the nation’s newest political party — also claims that a growing number of Australians want exactly those same things.
“I do believe that people are waking up to the dangers and the problems that will come from increased (Muslim) immigration,” ALA co-founder and political candidate Debbie Robinson said.
“Islam is a problem and if we don’t take steps to put laws in place to protect our culture and our society, then we are going to lose our freedom.”
It is a message that many Australians who have watched the rise of radicalism at home and abroad with a growing sense of unease are likely to identify with.
