While American talking heads and politicians wring their hands about what might constitute ‘Islamophobia’, fearing to touch any Political Third Rails, The Aussies are a little more direct.

The comments were made in an interview with Sky News, where Smith promoted her new political party, The Australian Liberty Alliance, which counts ‘the Islamisation issue’ as one of its two key pillars.
“We need to have an honest debate,” she said, before claiming that she does not mind offending those of Islamic faith. “I’m not worried, because I think that there are enough indicators that we have some serious issues already.”
The article goes on to say this:
Citing fears that Muslims may have trouble in integrating into new communities, she pointed to European countries that have large Islamic communities as one of her main worries, but claimed her party “does not have a problem with people who want to integrate.”
One policy Smith put forward was to force mosques, above any other place of worship, to sign the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in order to open, as she stated that only the Islamic community would “have a problem with it.”
To sum up, she’s reacting to other parts of the world, where she sees large groups of people entering Western Democracies, completely ill-equipped (and often unwilling) to function within the social expectations of the receiving nations.
The rapes and riots are just one way those problems are showing up.
