Australian PM Keeps Out Radical Islam Preachers; Due to Group's Effort to Set Up Pan-Muslim State

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on October 8 that he is ordering a crackdown to prevent radical Islamist preachers from entering the country, amidst rising tensions with the Muslim community following a series of security-related raids, the Pan Armenian website reports today (October 10, 2014).

Abbott -- who recently warned that the balance between freedom and security "may have to shift" to protect against radicalized Muslims seeking to carry out attacks -- said hate preachers would now be "red-carded" during the visa process.

The tougher new system -- which Abbott said would not require new legislation -- comes on the heels of a public meeting in Sydney last week by Hizb ut-Tahrir, an international group that says its goal is to establish a pan-national Muslim state in Australia.

"What I'm doing is declaring that we will henceforth have a new system in place which will ensure that preachers of hate can't come to Australia to peddle their extreme, divisive, and alien ideologies."
