Meet Australia's Sarah Palin. Stephanie Banister, 27, is running on the ultranationalist One Nation party platform in next month's Australian federal election.
Banister, an immigrant, is currently facing criminal charges for an Islamophobic campaign in which she placed stickers on supermarket products saying "Halal food funds terrorism".
When asked about her controversial views about Islam, the 27-year-old stated she didn't "oppose Islam as a country", but felt that shariah-law "should not be welcome here in Australia."
A bipartisan Australian parliamentary report released earlier this year praised Australian ideals and traditions, and sees no room for Islamic law in the Australian society.
Banister also called for a ban on halal food saying "less than two per cent of Australians follow Haram."
