Tony Abbott's war on hardline Muslims

This article from the herald sun

TONY Abbott says he will take a stand against an extreme Muslim group he describes as "peddlers of hate" who have defamed Australian values.

In an exclusive interview with the Herald Sun, the Liberal leader revealed that if he won next Saturday's federal election he would move to prosecute the radical Hizb ut-Tahrir.

And an Abbott government would order intelligence and security agencies to keep closer tabs on the group and others like it, which he said "gives aid and comfort to terrorism".

He would also look to block visas to enter Australia for its members, leaders, sympathisers and supporters.

"We need to take a strong stand against the peddlers of hate," Mr Abbott said as he campaigned in Victoria.

"Organisations such as Hizb ut-Tahrir are stirring up hatred against people of the Jewish faith, and people of Jewish faith ought not feel threatened or persecuted in their own country, Australia.
