This Election saw the revival of white supremacy, nationalism and exclusion

The real danger of the white supremacist fanatics to the Muslim community, stimulated by this exploitation of fear, has not yet been recognised by the authorities.

The New York Times reported that:

There were five white extremist attacks in Australia from 2011 through 2017, all of which were attacks on mosques and Islamic centers.

Experts say the same broad motives are at play whether the target is a mosque in Perth or an asylum seekers’ shelter in Dresden or a synagogue in Pittsburgh. Attackers who identify as white, Christian and culturally European see an attack on their privileged position in the West by immigrants, Muslims and other religious and racial minorities.
