Australia anti-Islam party says 'Trump' comparison unfair
An Australian political party launched by far right Dutch anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders has attempted to defend its stance on Islam, saying that it doesn't have a problem with Muslims per se, just with the religious ideology they follow.
Local media have compared Australian Liberty Alliance (ALA) policies to those of U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump, while its New South Wales candidate claimed in a video uploaded to Facebook that she wasn't racist as "mosques are not a race".
"Mosques are not like other places of worship. They are not like churches, synagogues or temples," Kirralie Smith said.
