    Anyone think these clowns will gain any traction here or is it just another One Nation? I think they'll do well in the poorer places, they will get some votes in Tassie I'd guess, a lot of the people here are very simple

    So One Nation MK2 or National Socialist German Workers' Party MK2?

    They aren't the only example of this, these far rights are popping up in Europe too

    The most recent US school shooting seems to have been anti islam,the cop shooter last night was Islamic

    Are we heading for another holocaust?

    Didn't start this to start a war,just checking who else thinks the world is headed for insanity and the killing of innocents spanning all races

    I can see this gaining traction

      Australia officially now has a political party modelled on the far-right wing movements in Europe and dedicated to the idea that Islam is a "totalitarian ideology with global aspirations".

      The Australian Liberty Alliance gained approval from the Australian Electoral Commission on Wednesday for registration as a party, having signed up well over the required 500 members and attracted no objections.

      Its national secretary, Ralf Schumann, confirmed that controversial anti-Muslim Dutch politician Geert Wilders planned to launch the party on October 20.

      Mr Schumann told sympathisers this week that the party faced "a strong headwind and ... some nasty windshears", but reminded supporters that "so did like-minded parties with similar policies in Europe".

      "And see where they are a few years later: In the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Austria, France and Italy – they are supported by millions, already poll in the 20 per cent bracket, win seats and slowly return common sense and Western principles to their parliaments."

      Mr Schumann refused an interview about the party, which is the political offshoot of the "Islam-critical" Q Society. But Q Society national president Debbie Robinson, who is also a director of the ALA, told Fairfax Media that Islam was "a dangerous ideology that's definitely not compatible with Western culture and society".

      "There is no moderate version of Islam ... there may be people who don't follow it to the letter, but there is no moderate version, so it's dangerous. It's dangerous for our society."

      In Q Society emails, Ms Robinson has said the Australian Liberty Alliance intends to "rebuild the lucky country".

      The party's manifesto says "Our Australia stands for individual liberty, small government, Western values built on Judaeo-Christian and Humanistic foundations, social fairness and an integrated multi-ethnic society".

      It outlines a number of policy positions including "smarter, smaller government", and "integration over separation" when it comes to multiculturalism.

      Islam, the manifesto says, "uses the religious element as a means to project itself onto non-Islamic societies ... No other religious ideology in our time has both the doctrinal aspiration as well as the economic and demographic muscle to impose itself globally".

      "Core policy" was that "all attempts to impose Islam's theocracy and sharia law on our liberal society must be stopped by democratic means, before the demographic, economic and socio-political realities make a peaceful solution impossible".

      The party would ban full-face coverings in public spaces, and calls for a 10-year moratorium on resident visa applications by people from member countries of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation. These countries include Indonesia, Turkey, Afghanistan, Malaysia and Egypt, as well as many African and Middle Eastern countries.

      People from "persecuted non-Islamic minorities" within those countries may be exempted from the visa moratorium.

      Other ALA policies include a "back to basics" Australian Broadcasting Corporation with the "non-core" parts privatised; the teaching of "respect for others" from an early age; and removing Australia from the UN Charter of Refugees because "resettling people from Africa, the Middle East and Asia is counter-productive, and drains these nations of their most valuable assets".

      The policies driven by the ALA spring from an increasingly assertive anti-Islam push in Australia, which has been encouraged by some prominent federal Coalition MPs including Cory Bernardi and George Christensen. It's expressed most vocally by the Reclaim Australia street protest movement, and anti-Halal food and anti-mosque organisations.

      Ms Robinson, who lives in Perth, said the party was not against individual Muslims, but against their "ideology". She said she supported the ideas of Reclaim, but that ALA and the Q Society "try to do it from a more intellectual side of things".

      Company documents show the ALA's directors are Ms Robinson, her husband Tony, a prominent Perth orthopaedic surgeon, Andrew and Susan Horwood, who run Adelaide wholesale bakery Emmaline's Country Kitchen, and Mr Schumann, who is based in Melbourne.

      Ms Robinson is also the director of fund-raising company Skipngirl Productions, which has registered "72 Virgins" and "Hal and Al's" as business names. Skipngirl sells "Hal & Al's 72 Virgins", which is described as "a very drinkable Australian sparkling wine" from the Barossa Valley.

      A note to consumers on the label says: "Consumption of this fine Australian wine may prevent you from entering the Islamic Paradise. However, both the Jewish and Christian paradises remain open as alternative (sic)."

      The anti-Islam movement has sparked a response from a new group called Voices Against Bigotry, whose co-founder, Susie Latham, said, "It's time for all Australians to unite (against) this hate-mongering".

      "Groups such as the Q Society and ALA are mainstreaming bigotry. This emboldens people to launch verbal and physical attacks on Muslims, and Australians of all backgrounds should stand against this."

      Islamic Council of Victoria spokesman Kuranda Seyit said it was quite ludicrous for the ALA to worry about the Islamisation of Australia "considering that about 2 per cent of Australians are Muslim, and about half of them are just nominal Muslims".

      "The majority of Australians will be able to differentiate between a genuine political party and what is bigotry and a conservative and narrow version of Christian dogma embedded into a quasi-political agenda," he said.

      "On the lighter side, this party will be known as ALA, sounds close to Allah, don't you think? We can call them Hezb-bollah, 'The party of ALA', perfect nickname for the group."

      Author and consultant Tasneem Chopra said Muslims in Australia had been successfully integrating for centuries, but that, "the way that this party is talking you'd think they were an anomaly who has no place, who have no fit".

      "There are an enormous number of obstacles, from racism and discrimination, that people are experiencing, but they're still forging ahead to do it. The presence of a party like this and ... what they are trying to suggest, doesn't help anybody," she said.

        They'll be quietly promoted by the mainstream conservatives, same as Hanson was. The publicising of her inane racist prattling gave the conservatives the perfect cover for their own 'mild by comparison' versions. See children overboard.

        That insanity has been part of human political life since the advent of recorded history. It certainly isn't the invention or the preserve of IS or modern Islamic radical groups. See 6 August 1945.

        Our Western leaders appear powerless to stop the radicalisation of youth, probably because they don't hold any of the high ground when it comes to principled politics.

        AFAIK the netherlands is one of the most multicultural countries in the world, I have read Amsterdam is the most multicultural in the world. On a daily basis I bump into people from all over the world, there are large portions of the city that have muslim communities, there are strong suriname links, I bump into Australians, English, Irish and Americans. In my own office we have Americans, Canadians, Australians, South Africans, English, Scottish, Germans, Jamaicans and of course Dutch. I think a number of other people too. It just seems to work here, there never really seems to be that much clash or hatred between the races.
        Sure there is Wilders in Rotterdam who is dead against immigration and multiculturalism, but he represents a minority. There are clashes around December related to Zwarte Piet but generally you never here of religious based hatred it is one of the most tolerant places I have ever experienced and everyone just lives together happily.

        There was a law around banning the burqa or full head dress, however I have seen them a few times. I think the rest of the world could learn a lot from Amsterdam and the Netherlands, there is a reason they have the happiest children in the world and chilled out adults and it isnt weed

          Fair enough...I think that they (CEC) give quite a lot of food for thought compared to the ramblings of political opponents like the ALA and one Nation. I do not agree with their entire view of things, but then again, I don't agree with the entire views of any one political party. They take a much deeper look into the woes of the world and a certainly not afraid to try to expose their findings to the masses.

          Lets take a look at the terrorist threat that is current news. In the western world it is not really investigated by the average Joe. The bloke on the street will tell you Muslim's are evil and there belief systems are anti women and vile in nature. Is that because the average Joe has completely immersed himself in Muslim culture and witnessed this "wicked" religion first hand? Is he just comparing his own belief/religion with a strange one and assuming it's wrong, because it is different? Or, is it because that's what we are being fed by the media? We all know it is the radicals that are the threat, but I found this investigation and publication by the CEC interesting.

          I'm sorry for the way this cut and paste turned out. I got it from a PDF. It's a little hard to read but please bear with it, or go to the link. Other interesting articles include why we should join BRICS. Give it a look if you have time...

          Terrorism: Asymmetric Warfare

          Another form of warfare
          developed under the British
          Monarchy, Steinberg
          (EIR Counterintelligence Editor
          Jeffrey Steinberg) said, is

          asymmetric warfare, such as
          terrorism, fomented as an assault
          on nation-states. He highlighted
          the British-Saudi alliance, with
          its long history since the days of
          the British East India Company in
          the 18th century, and continuing
          still today. “Right now”, he said,
          “we’re dealing with a British
          strategy for the entire greater
          Middle East, Southwest Asia,
          Persian Gulf, and North Africa
          region, to create a new Hundred
          Years’ War, a population war
          within the Islamic world, pitting
          Sunnis against Shiites, Arabs
          against Persians”.

          Steinberg reported on the
          fight against these policies
          within the United States, such
          as the drive to declassify the
          suppressed 28 pages of the
          Joint Congressional Inquiry into
          9/11, exposing the Saudi role—
          particularly that of former Saudi
          Ambassador to the USA and
          long-time intelligence figure
          Prince Bandar bin Sultan—in
          preparing and supporting the
          hijackers who carried out the 11
          September 2001 attacks. “The
          issue is not just the role of the
          Saudi Monarchy in sponsoring
          global Sunni jihadist terrorism”,
          said Steinberg. “Those 28
          pages open up the aperture
          for not just the Saudi role, but
          the British role”, because of
          Bandar’s role as architect, along
          with Margaret Thatcher, of the
          British/Saudi weapons deal
          called Al-Yamamah.” Under this
          barter arrangement, the British
          company BAE Systems provided
          upwards of $40 billion in military
          equipment to the Saudi armed
          forces and an additional $20
          billion in bribes to Saudi princes,
          with huge cash profi t from the
          deals going into an offshore slush
          fund to “fi ght communism”—
          including through the 1980s
          Afghanistan mujahedin project,
          which gave rise to much of the
          modern jihadist movement.

          CEC researcher Glen
          Isherwood concluded the panel
          with an explosive report on “Who
          is Sponsoring International
          terrorism?”, focussed on the
          role of Britain’s Prince Charles as
          an intimate of Bandar and other
          Saudi fi gures linked to 9/11 and
          the terrorism wave spread by the
          Islamic State. He began by citing
          a 23 September 2014 CEC
          press release, which warned that
          “a near-term terrorist attack upon
          Australian soil is almost guaranteed”.
          On 15 December 2014 the
          “Sydney Siege” erupted on cue,
          in which three people were killed
          and four wounded. We knew that
          such an event would happen, he
          explained, because the certainty
          of a new Global Financial Crisis
          called into question the very
          existence of the British Empire,
          and the Crown would deploy
          its intelligence agencies to create
          mayhem in order to preserve
          its power.

          Addressing the widespread
          belief that the Empire no longer
          exists, Isherwood explained
          that it is now self-described as
          an “informal fi nancial empire”,
          which, through “fi nancial conditionality”,
          radical “green” policies,
          and provoked wars and terrorism,
          is committing genocide
          on the scale of the mass famines
          it created in India and Ireland in
          the 19th century, or worse. The
          documented personal role of
          the Queen in sacking Australian
          Prime Minister Gough Whitlam
          in 1975, because he was committed
          to national sovereignty
          and economic development, is
          another example of the Crown’s
          continuing power.

          Perhaps the most shocking of
          all is the deep involvement of
          Prince Charles in sponsoring and
          protecting international terrorism,
          which Isherwood explained
          in detail, zeroing in on the board
          of Charles’s Oxford Centre for
          Islamic Studies, which is packed
          with such leading fi nanciers and
          sponsors of terrorism as Princes
          Bandar bin Sultan and Turki
          bin Faisal, both of them named
          in lawsuits by 9/11 families as
          orchestrators of those atrocities.
          Isherwood concluded with the
          case of the infamous Abu Hamza
          Al Masri, who as preacher at
          the Finsbury Mosque in London
          for several years beginning
          in 1997 directed the training and
          dispatch of hundreds of terrorists,
          worldwide and within the
          UK. In the 7 July 2005 London
          Subway bombings by his disciples,
          known as “7/7”, 52 people
          were killed and 700 wounded.
          While preparing such attacks,
          Isherwood demonstrated, Hamza
          was under the protection of Britain’s
          MI5 and MI6 on behalf of
          the Crown. The danger will escalate,
          including with more attacks
          in Britain itself, until the dirty apparatus
          behind them is fully exposed
          and rooted out.

          History and Philosophy of the Citizens Electoral Council


          CEC Australia is a national political party, established in 1988 in Queensland.

          In the early 1990s, the CEC became closely associated with the LaRouche organisation in the U.S.A. Our collaboration with Mr. LaRouche and his cothinkers worldwide, is based on achieving peace through economic development, both for Australia, and for all regions of the world.

          In 1990, the CEC developed an economic programme for the reconstruction of our nation entitled Sovereign Australia, and in 1994 published Sovereign Australia II—A Legislative Programme to Save our Nation, which latter contained drafts of the necessary legislation for economic reconstruction, including debt moratoria for farmers and the re-establishment of a national bank, among other key elements; these programmes and legislation are far more urgently needed now, than when they were written.

          By far the most pressing issue of our times, both for Australia and for the world, is the accelerating onset of a new Great Depression, one which was caused by the insane policies of globalisation, privatisation, deregulation, etc., policies which, if not soon reversed, will plunge the world not merely into a depression, but into a New Dark Age beyond the imagination of most people alive today. For over three decades, only one economist in the world has both predicted this new Depression, and has proposed policies on how to get out of it—Lyndon LaRouche. The proposals of Mr. LaRouche, a several-time U.S. Presidential candidate (including in 2004), have earned him the bitter, unrelenting enmity of the City of London and Wall Street, which the old Australian Labor Party denounced as "The Money Power". Together with the news media and government agencies under their influence on several continents, London and Wall Street have mounted what Ramsey Clarke, the former U.S. Attorney General, has called "a broader range of deliberate cunning and systematic misconduct, over a longer period of time, utilizing the power of the federal government, than any other prosecution by the U.S. government, in my time, or to my knowledge". London and Wall Street are terrified that Mr. LaRouche's "New Bretton Woods" proposal to return to a system of sovereign, protectionist nation-states (as in the early postwar period) will bankrupt the power of the world financial oligarchy, paving the way for governments to pursue policies of the "general welfare" or "common good", as opposed to enriching a tiny minority of individuals, at the expense of everyone else.

          As does Mr. LaRouche, the CEC represents the Judeo-Christian-Islamic view that all human beings are created in the living image of God the Creator, and are therefore endowed with creative reason, unlike any other species. This "divine spark" of reason common to all mankind, means that there is only one race—the human race—contrary to the racist premises of multiculturalism. Since all men and women are created equal, they are thus sovereign individuals under natural law, and the sacred duty of governments is to foster the common good—the economic and social conditions under which each and every individual may flourish, and therefore contribute to the good of his or her nation, and to mankind as a whole.

          A major contributing factor to the present economic collapse, is the anti-human, bestial policies represented by the rock-drug-sex counterculture which took off in the 1960s. The "me first", "me only" policies championed by the counterculture, are precisely those also championed by the economic policies of globalisation, privatisation, etc.; indeed, the former has helped prepare the way for the latter. The CEC is committed, as is Mr. LaRouche, to urgently re-establishing a new Golden Renaissance, based upon the Classical tradition in art and philosophy, where the creative powers of each individual are fostered, to the benefit of both the individual, and of the entire society.
