Dødstrusler fra en efter sigende fredens religion
NSW Christian Democratic Party leader Reverend Fred Nile said today he had received death threats over his call for a moratorium on Islamic immigration to Australia.
Mr Nile, who is recontesting his upper house seat at the March 24 state election, on Saturday called for a 10-year ban on Islamic immigration.
He wants the immigration department to give preference to persecuted Christians while studies on the impact of Islamic immigration are carried out during the moratorium.
Mr Nile has previously called for a ban on the wearing of full-face scarves in NSW.
Today, he said he and another Christian Democratic Party (CDP) candidate had received death threats in recent days.
On Friday, a man had telephoned Allan Lotfizadeh, the CDP candidate for the western Sydney electorate of Auburn, and said: "You Christian pig. You are dead", Mr Nile said.
Det hører med til historien, at hr. Lotfizadeh´s modkandidat ved de australske valg er Mamdouh Habib, der har været fængslet i Guantanamo-lejren i tre år på grund af mistanke om involvering i muslimsk terror.Yesterday, Mr Nile said, a man approached a CDP election worker at Granville and asked her where he (Mr Nile) lived, and what he had against Muslims.
She had then said: "Tell Fred Nile I am going to act out my faith on him".
Mr Nile said he believed the threats were linked to his statements on Islamic immigration and full-face scarves.
"I think, if they're talking about the Muslim issue it's related to the Muslim issue," he said.
Mr Nile said the threats, which have been reported to police, highlighted the need for the immigration moratorium.
"The reason why I called for the moratorium is because of what's happening in France and Holland where the Muslim minority are becoming militant," he said.
