When ignorance is mixed with confidence, it can be very dangerous. Pauline Hanson is creating fear in the general public to create division within society for her hidden agenda.

The same rule is being applied by terrorists who teach young Muslims that they don’t belong in Western countries. The Australian public is smart enough to understand that if Asians have become loyal Australians since Hanson’s first anti-immigration speech in 1996, then Muslims will too. Our unity is our biggest strength because hate cannot wipe out hate — only love and education can do that.
