Citizenship and Integration

Citizenship and Integration

Our detailed policies in this portfolio will be released by the Policy Development Committee as we work towards the upcoming federal election. Please refer to our values and core policies in the meantime.

Integration over Separation

We will work towards an integrated multi-ethnic society based on core Western values and individual Liberty. We will stop the Islamisation of Australia and end divisive multiculturalism. Central to all our policies will be integration over separation and equal rights and obligations for all Australians.

Stop the Islamisation of Australia

Islam is not merely a religion, it is a totalitarian ideology with global aspirations. Islam uses the religious element as a means to project itself onto non-Islamic societies, which is manifest in the historical and ongoing expansion of Islam.

A multitude of groups, movements and multi-national organisations are actively pursuing this agenda globally, including in Australia. These organisations differ in their strategies, tactical approach and their message, but the common denominator is the desire to promote Islam and project Islam's societal model of a divinely ordained theocracy across the world.

Islam does not accept the separation of religion from state, but seeks dominance over all aspects of human life and society. Whereas we see religion as part of life, Islam sees life as part of the religion. This is not 'Islamism' or a minority view by extremists, this is basic Islamic doctrine. While only a small number of Muslims actively pursue this agenda, Islam's divine law makes it the duty of all Muslims to contribute to this effort according to their abilities. No other religious ideology in our time has both the doctrinal aspiration as well as the economic and demographic muscle to impose itself globally.

It is our core policy that all attempts to impose Islam's theocracy and Sharia law on our liberal society must be stopped by democratic means, before the demographic, economic and sociopolitical realities make a peaceful solution impossible.

Australian Liberty Alliance will seek to enact the policy proposals outlined in the paper "Practical Steps to Stop Islamisation", first published by Q Society of Australia Inc in February 2014.

These proposals include a 10-year moratorium on all resident visa categories for applicants from member countries of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). Exceptions shall apply to the humanitarian intake of persecuted non-Islamic minorities from OIC countries.

Further, we will require for accredited Islamic organisations in Australia to accept formally the supremacy of Australian law and universal human rights over Islamic doctrine and Sharia law. For example full face coverings in public spaces shall be prohibited.

We will seek to prevent the implementation of any aspect of Sharia finance, Sharia courts and the influence of local or foreign Sharia councils over Australian institutions, our economic system and our supply chain. Among the proposed measures is the mandatory labelling of products and services from companies that have taken out halal certification, the implementation of the 'user pays' principle for halal certification schemes and an end to religious discrimination in Australia's secular organisations.

Real Reconciliation: No place for Apartheid in Australia.

If you are born here to Australian parents, then you are a native Australian. If you take out Australian citizenship, swear your oath of allegiance to Australia and do not owe allegiance to another country, then you are an Australian by choice. Whether native or by choice, all Australians deserve to have the same rights and obligations. Nobody in Australia should consider himself deserving of more rights or fewer obligations, merely because of skin colour or ancestry.

We believe the only way to overcome disadvantages and racism in our society is to eliminate what divides us. True equality and genuine respect cannot come from different laws for different classes of people. Apartheid South Africa had different laws for different races. We do not want this in Australia.

For us, 'affirmative action' is another word for institutionalised racism and apartheid. Dividing people according to race or ethnic self-identification creates division, jealousy and hatred. However, Australian Liberty Alliance recognises that certain individuals or groups have circumstances that require specific interventions appropriate to their needs.

Australian Liberty Alliance will work towards an Australia where people are special because of what they know, what they achieve and what they do for each other, not because of the colour of their skin. We stand against apartheid and racism. We stand for an integrated multi-ethnic Australia that everyone can be proud to call home.

For a Liveable Australia

We propose a more sustainable approach to immigration which, supported by fair social and taxation policies, aims for a more liveable Australia for this and future generations.

Better conditions for Australian businesses and more opportunities for working Australians are the keys to a prosperous future, a sustainable economy and a strong social security system.

Population growth will be directed toward regional areas and the Northern and Western parts of Australia.

Focus on Citizenship and Community Spirit

Australian Liberty Alliance believes Australian citizenship is a privilege and not a right. We will reform the access to and benefits of Australian citizenship.

New applicants for Australian citizenship shall be required to revoke any other citizenship and Australian citizens applying for another country's citizenship shall have their Australian passport revoked. With us, there will be no dual citizenship in the future. We aim to make Australian citizenship the relevant criteria for our social and welfare system. We will revoke Australian passports from habitual criminals who still hold dual citizenship.

Taxpayers shall not subsidise associations formed around foreign nationalities. Savings will be directed towards community groups and service clubs who serve the whole community, without discrimination.
