Summary: 

Austria’s new coalition government — dubbed by CNN as “a balance of far right and environmental policies” — has announced new measures against “political Islam.” “The measures include a ban on Islamic headscarves for girls until they reach the age of 14 and a provision for putting potentially dangerous individuals in ‘protective custody’ to prevent them from committing violent actions.”

Sebastian Kurz appears determined to save his country from Islamization.
