Australian politician urges halt to Muslim immigration
Declaring that Australian politics habitually deals only with the symptoms of the Muslim problem and not with the problem itself, John Stone, a former government minister and member of the Australian Senate, states forthrightly that Islam itself is the problem, and, more importantly, in a speech he gave last September to the magazine Quadrant, he urges that Australia take action commensurate with that problem:
There is an old adage that, when you are already in a hole, stop digging. The entry into Australia of Muslim immigrants over the past thirty-five years or so means that we are now in a hole. The first thing to do, then, is to stop digging. We should curtail very sharply, to the point of virtually halting, the further entry of Muslims within our immigration programs. That will be attacked as “discriminatory”, and so it is. We have every right to discriminate against the admission to Australia of people of any culture that we believe will be incompatible with the peace, order and good government of our country.Stone is in his late seventies and retired, and I hope that his age is not the reason he feels he can afford to speak the truth so plainly and clearly. We need men who are still in the midst of their careers, men who currently occupy political office, like Rep. Virgil Goode, to speak the truth as well. And of course the leading Islam critics, who command large conservative followings and are featured widely in the media, must stop flirting so outrageously with the issue and make policy recommendations commensurate with their own description of the Islam threat. For them to keep warning endlessly about the horrors of Islamization while also saying that continued large scale Muslim immigration is just fine with them, is totally unacceptable. Of course, if their own conservative readers and audiences never demand some basic intellectual consistency from them on this point, that makes it easier for them to continue the evasion.
