Australian politician calls for 'Muslim ban', and 'final solution

Senator slammed for using Nazi term 'final solution' as he demands a ban on Islamic immigrants

Fraser Anning floated what the New York Times calls the "Nazi euphemism for genocide" on Tuesday during his first speech to Parliament, during which he called for a halt to Muslim immigration.

Hanson - who called for a ban on immigration in her first speech to the Senate in 2016 and warned Australia was in danger of being "swamped by Muslims" - said that she was offended by comparisons between Anning and herself.

He said: "The final solution to the immigration problem of course is a popular vote".

The words "final solution" usually refer to the Nazi policy of extermination carried out against the Jews during the Holocaust.

Opposition leader Bill Shorten called Anning's speech "repugnant and disgraceful", while independent senator Derryn Hinch labelled it "vomitous poison". Hanson said she warned Anning not to take Howard on to his staff when Anning replaced Roberts after his disqualification.

"All I said was the final solution to the immigration problem is a vote of the Australian people", he said.

In a weird defence of the senator, Mr Katter said the Muslims in Australia were persecuting the Jews, and saying Australia turned its back on them.

"The vast majority of the victims of Islamist terrorism are Muslims", Mr Turnbull said.

"We do not want people coming in from the Middle East or North Africa unless they're the persecuted minorities", Mr Katter said.

In his maiden speech at the Senate on Tuesday, Anning targeted global students by asking for an "end to Australian-job-stealing 457 visas" and "force worldwide students to return to their country of origin once they finish their education".

"The remarks by Senator Anning are justly condemned and rejected by us all".

He later told the Senate he deeply regretted shaking Mr Anning's hand after he gave the speech last night.

However, hitting back at the criticism, Bob Katter, the leader of Anning's party, KAP, said he supported his colleague's statement "1,000 per cent".

Fraser Anning originally joined the Upper House previous year as a One Nation senator after gaining only 19 primary votes, but quit on the day he entered the Senate. "We are a multiracial society and I've always advocated you do not have to be white to be Australian", Senator Hanson told parliament on Wednesday.

As for the "final solution" reference: "Fraser is a knockabout bloke, he's owned pubs and he's not stupid - he built his own aeroplane".

Mr Katter told Muslim terrorists to "get out of this country, you're not welcome here". "Those who try to demonize Muslims because of the crimes of a minority are only helping terrorists".

Cabinet Minister Josh Frydenberg had relatives who went through the Holocaust and this morning slammed the words as ignorant, insensitive, divisive and hurtful. Come Monday, he'll have to say it to my face. "I'm exhausted of having to stand up against hate, against vilification, time and time and time again".

But she said she was sick of being forced to defend multiculturalism. He's a member of the hard left, not the lily pad left.

"There has to be a point when this Parliament says enough, and if we haven't reached that point tonight then for some of us there is apparently no limit at all", he said.
