Concerned at losing 'Aussie identity'
Denies re-entering politics for money
'Muslim first and Australian second'
PAULINE Hanson will urge major political parties to stop the flow of Muslim immigrants into Australia when she launches her bid to become a senator this year.
Warning Australia could go down the same road as some European countries, where she says racial tension are “out of control”, Ms Hanson says federal politicians will eventually have to decide on Muslim numbers in Australia.
“We have to decide now whether we want to go the way Britain, France and the Netherlands have gone,” she told The Herald Sun.
“England's being lost. It's losing its identity and its way of life.”
Ms Hanson also denies she is re-entering politics for financial gain, claiming the major political parties need a shake-up.
She says the Muslim way of life is totally opposite to the Australian way, citing instances of multiple marriages, the forcing of women to wear the burqa, closure of pools to males and shopping centre bans on Christmas decorations.
“The fact is they're Muslim first and Australian second,” Ms Hanson says.
She is also releasing her life story, entitled Untamed and Unashamed, which is to be launched this month by Sydney broadcaster Alan Jones.
