scroll to the bottom, per snopes:
The individual statements attributed to Australian government officials included in the e-mail reproduced at the head of this page are thus essentially accurate, but the selectively-quoted excerpts of controversial material from different news stories create the misleading overall impression that Australia enacted a formal policy to force some Muslim groups out of the country. The statements quoted were part of the public debate over an issue that flared briefly in the immediate aftermath of the London Tube bombings, then quietly subsided.

So, it's essentially a collection of sundry quotes from varous people in the tense time after the bombings, neither official government pronouncement nor representative of current policy.
I just thought we should clarify that for the record here.
leilani: You're confused. Perhaps in 2005 the issue died down, but over the past 6 months it's very much in the news again in Australia. The clerics are only getting more brazen and the public knows about it.
