Friday, 16th February 2007 Rev Fred Nile Concerned About Islamic Extremists In Australia The Reverend Fred Nile MLC, Leader of the Christian Democratic Party, supports some statements by visiting Jewish expert on Islam, Professor Raphael Israeli, from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, concerning the dangers from Islamic extremists in Australia, based on the current experience of the French nation. Professor Israeli said radical Islam would not be defeated by a war of words.
“You need to infiltrate all those circles where the Muslim radicals operate, to arrest them, and to limit immigration into western countries where these Muslims, who are bent on destroying western civilisation…to limit immigration, even students who apply to come from Islamic countries to the West,” he said.
“It serves no purpose when you have this home-grown terrorist, who has been preparing for years to blow up undergrounds in London, and all you do is lead a war of words. The war of words doesn’t help. There is a whole gamut of actions that are possible in order to check this threat of Islam”.
“Professor Israeli said that in France, which has the highest proportion of Muslims in Europe at about 10 per cent, it was already too late. There were regions even the police were scared to enter and militant Muslims were changing the country’s political, economic and cultural fabric, and demanding anti-Semitic and anti-Israel policies.
“Officially, there are fewer than 300,000 Muslims in Australia according to the 2001 Census, but Islamic community officials estimate the actual number to be at least 500,000 – about 2.5 per cent of the population.
“Even though it’s so low, they are so vocal, and they make so much noise.” Professor Israeli said. “And therefore the situation has to be checked before they increase their numbers, because don’t forget, in your immediate proximity dwells the largest or most populous Islamic country in the world , and by necessity, there is demographic pressure from here to channel the surplus of populations to wherever it’s possible.
“And one of the big possibilities is Australia, so they will continue to come legally, or illegally, and settle here, and when they get to the rate of the 10 per cent like in France, then you will see life will become untenable. He said France might already be at the ‘point of no return’.
“Then they control whole sections of the economy, there are areas in France where you cannot be elected to Parliament without the support of the Muslims and so on. And therefore, by increasing their numbers they start to have an impact on the social, economic political and cultural nature of the country”.
He warned that radical Muslims would find it easier to ‘melt’ into the community and plan terrorist acts without scrutiny from authorities if the growth of Australia’s Muslim population was allowed to continue.
“You will have then large concentrations of Muslims, so it’s not thousands, it will be millions, and when they become millions it’s a big mass where individual Muslims, including terrorists, can melt, and then go look for them.
“In England they already have that problem, they cannot locate them, they cannot sort them out from the general population, and sometimes you have to impose a curfew on a whole area to catch one or two or three terrorists, and by doing that you do an injustice to an entire population, and then they start complaining that they are discriminated against” said Professor Israeli.
The Rev Fred Nile said that population experts paint a worrying picture for Australia’s population. Based on the 2001 Census, the Australian population was approximately 19 million and 1.5% was Muslim 285,000. (In 2007 it is already 500,000!) Based on the non Muslim birth-rate of 1.7 and the Muslim birth-rate of 6.8:
The first generation will be: Non Muslim 15,907,750 Muslim 969,000
The second generation will be: Non Muslim 13,521,587 Muslim 3,294,600
The third generation will be: Non Muslim 11,493,348 Muslim 11,201,640
The fourth generation will be: Non Muslim 9,769,346 Muslim 38,085,576
“These potential population projections present a major challenge to Federal and State Governments” said Rev Fred Nile MLC.
