Then There Were Two

There will soon be two openly Islamophobic parties operating in Australia. The first, of course, is Fred Nile's Christian Democrats - see my post Witches Brew 5 (7/10/11).

Here's the second:

"An anti-Islam party based on the hardline views of Dutch politician Geert Wilders plans to field candidates at the next federal election... 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." (Anti-Islam party to contest next election, Chip Le Grand, The Australian, 5/3/14)

An anti-Islam think tank?! Just imagine the conniptions in the ms media if someone were to set up an anti-Judaism or anti-Christianity 'think tank'?

The Q Society, BTW, has just held a Stop Islamization of Nations (SION) 'congress' in Melbourne:

I couldn't help but notice that its panelists included such luminaries as Pamela Geller (awarded the 'Queen Esther Award for Jewish Heroism' by the Creative Zionist Coalition in 2013); Robert Spencer (director of Jihad Watch, "a program of the David Horowitz Freedom Center"); Dr Mordechai Kedar (ex-IDF Military Intelligence); and Michael Burd (described as "a passionate Zionist advocate and a critic of the Jewish community representatives' views on multiculturalism and asylum seekers") (See for the complete list.)

Maybe the congress should have been called Zap Islamization of Nations (ZION)?

The Australian mischaracterised Q Society. It is an anti-Islamist think tank, not anti-Muslim or Islam. It comprises Australians who are prepared to act to avoid the rapid Islamisation that has occured in many countries, particularly in Europe.

I attended the congress. It was far from being a hate-fest. A summary of the speeches appeared at

If the Q Society is not anti-Muslim, please explain Step 8 of its document, Twelve Practical Steps to Stop Islamisation: "Implement a 10-year moratorium on all resident visa categories for applicants from Organisation of Islamic Cooperation-member countries."
