‘Terrorism on our streets’ without action on Islam: Hanson

PAULINE Hanson believes there will "terrorism on our streets" if Australia does not act against Islam.

Ms Hanson told reporters yesterday she still believed Australia was being "swamped by Asians" - a claim she made in her maiden parliamentary speech in 1996.

Ms Hanson said Islamic schools and mosques should be more transparent.

"You can't deny the fact that in these mosques they have been known to preach hate towards us. Is that a society that we want to live in?" she said.

"Do you want to see terrorism on our streets here? Do you want to see our Australians murdered?"

The Greens have vowed to fight Ms Hanson and other One Nation senators. Leader Richard Di Natale said the Greens would stand up to her.

"We will take it right up to her, to show that in a modern Australia there is no place for racism, there is no place for bigotry, for the sort of hatred that she is spreading through her views," he said.

"We won't roll over like (former prime minister) John Howard did when Pauline Hanson first came on to the political scene federally."
