UK’s Nigel Farage disagrees with Hanson on Muslims

UK’s Nigel Farage disagrees with Hanson on Muslims

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat itChurchill

Outspoken British politician Nigel Farage has distanced himself from controversial comments about Islam made by One Nation leader Pauline Hanson.

Nigel Farage is a clever fellow. He lives in a country where Muslims have taken over cities. Where they have set up parallel legal systems and have too many no-go-areas for non Muslims. But when asked if he agreed with Ms Hanson that Islam was a “disease” that nations need to “vaccinate” against, he said if we outlawed the entire religion, we will lose. Of all people Mr Farage should know that to win the hearts and minds of moderate Muslims for a happy integrated society would need the short-circuiting of their logic board—their Quran. For that an iron fist is essential, not soft gloves. History has proved that well enough.

West will ‘lose’ if we outlaw Islam, Britain’s Nigel Farage says

Mr Farage was a leading figure in the fight for Brexit and is now a confidant of Donald Trump.

He has used the recent London terrorist attack to urge Americans to support Mr Trump’s travel ban on six majority Muslim countries and claims it “might stop” the next jihadi attack on a major city.

But when asked if he agreed with Ms Hanson that Islam was a “disease” that nations need to “vaccinate” against, he said if we outlawed the entire religion, we will lose.

“I’ve long taken the view we should be deeply intolerant of sharia law,” he said.

“But I’ve also long taken the view that if you go down the route of say Geert Wilders in The Netherlands, who says he wants in that country for all the mosques to be closed for the Quran to be banned and for an entire religion to be outlawed, then we will lose.

“We have got to try to get [moderate Muslims] on our side.”

Mr Farage said he had been invited to Australia by One Nation but explained he got invitations from “all sorts of people”.

He does, however, want an immediate and major overhaul of Britain’s immigration policies.

What will be the short-term damage when the United Kingdom leaves the EU single market?

“We’ve got to get rid of this failed doctrine of multiculturalism,” he said.

“What that has meant is we have encouraged division within our communities rather than integration and unity.”

Britain’s exit from the European Union will be formally triggered on Wednesday by Prime Minister Theresa May.

Arguably no person played a greater role in making Brexit happen than Mr Farage and his UK Independence Party.

But even though the campaign was largely fought on reducing immigration, he hoped Brexit would see visa laws relaxed for some Commonwealth citizens and wanted many more Australians to come to the United Kingdom.

“Would I like to see more of our family here? Yes, of course,” he said.

“They’re not coming to massively increase the population, they’re coming for short-term work.”

Donald Trump ‘trusts me’

Mr Farage has been pictured repeatedly with Mr Trump.

The pair struck up a friendly relationship after Mr Farage agreed to address a Republican rally during last year’s election campaign.

Mr Farage refused to disclose what subjects they discussed because “I believe in trust. And you know what? He trusts me”.

But when asked if he ever gave an opinion on policy he replied, “it’s not beyond the wit of man to think perhaps we do discuss one or two issues that are relevant”.

There has been speculation Mr Farage could eventually take on some sort of role in the US.

But he said his focus was currently getting the best Brexit deal possible for Britain.

“I spent 25 years on this project, I’ve given up everything to pursue this Brexit dream,” he said.

“I will spend the next two years leading a group in the European Parliament being at the heart of where these negotiations are going on and after that we’ll see.”

    Perhaps Mr Farage is well aware of the “race hate” laws of the UK and the likelihood of a militant muslim carrying out one of those endless death threats made against anyone who “criticises” islam in just about every country of the world. To say “Britain should ban all Muslim immigration” would be sure to have him hauled before the British HRC; perhaps the complainant would be the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, himself. That’s be the same Sadiq Khan who advised the world that living in a city meant that we should just get used to regular terrorist attacks – carried out by muslims, needless to say.

    It is a disease and the death toll, just this century, is already surpassing the worst epidemics of the 20th century.

      Ssssshhhhhh………….move on folks, nothing to see here.

        The same khan who has yet to condemn the terrorist last week….

      Tend to agree re. Farage, Jack. He’s too smart to be brought undone by unguarded responses to “gotcha” questions. The less said about that Khan(t) (some can; some khant) the better.

      Islamism is, not to put too fine a point on it, a potential apocalyptic pestilence, but the zombie pollies and journos are in PC denial, coddled within their womb of cultural Marxism.

    I saw Amanda Vanstone in the Herald today ( yes, we still get it, wife likes the crossword ) saying Hanson is wrong in barring Muslims as the fellow in the UK run down was a born in the UK. Get that?
    You can see why Amanda was chosen by the ABC as the alternate voice to the lefties.

    Banning religions only make them more attractive to too many.

    However, I fail to see why the taxpayer should support a religion so obviously antipathetic to what I’ll call mainstream Australian values, as we seem to do by the multi million dollars per annum with Islam.

    The whole concept of taxpayers paying anything towards the operation of Islamic schools is wrong in so many ways. It can’t be compared with the Catholic school system – (although hard line Protestants 100 years ago might not have agreed with that).

    In every large migrant group that has come to Australia, the ‘three generation’ rule has always applied, where, by the third generation (the second to be born here), that third generation is as much Australian as it is part of the ‘mother country’ culture. Islamic schools are preventing, or at best, significantly slowing this process, and as such, they should be actively discouraged, and if not banned, then ALL funding for their operations should come from the parents who want their children educated (or should that be ‘educated’) in such a way as to prevent them from learning mainstream Australian values and mixing with mainstream Australian children, the successful mixing pot that has been beneficial to both to the migrant children and local children.

    muslims are not a race and islam is not a religion.

    islam is a death cult of satan……….

    The filth that is Muslims with the faith of Islam the evil in out midst. The inbreeding alone makes for mentally disturbed peoples….Our Doctors in attendance at screening centre’s can vow for their mental disorders and they do ,then the left gives them a leave pass and victimhood

    Banning something only makes the problem worse as it tends to drive everything underground, out of view and away from public scrutiny.
    Much better to keep them in the open, but there needs to be a much higher degree of vigilance on their movements and on their mosques.

    • Zoltan 28/03/2017, 10:13 am

      Id like to see it driven underground, preferably by putting them all into and filling in one of those huge open face coal mines we have here. Preferably a worked out one of course.
