Senator Brandis, "Senator Hanson, for the last four years I have had responsibility, pre-eminently among the ministers, subject to
the Prime Minister, for national security policy. And, I can tell you, Senator Hanson, that it has been the advice of
each Director-General of Security with whom I have worked, and each Commissioner of the Australian Federal
Police with whom I have worked that it is vital for their intelligence and law enforcement work that they work
cooperatively with the Muslim community. To ridicule that community, to drive it into a corner, to mock its
religious garments is an appalling thing to do, and I would ask you to reflect on what you have done."
