Australia! Land of the free. Land of opportunity. Land of milk and honey. Ask any hardworking Greek or Italian immigrant and they will tell you it is true. It's a place where the opportunity is given to live a good life. A peaceful life. Australia - the country that opened its arms to the downtrodden peoples of war ravaged Europe. Australia - the land that opened its arms to the Vietnamese. But then, we went too far with our open-arms policy.
Greg Hunt is fighting a losing battle over global warming and his renewable energy targets. They might be manna from heaven for hyperventilating Green warmists but these expensive targets are bullshit to Abbott and gaining less and less traction with realists. The globe is certainly not warming and, if it was, we should be over the moon about it.
One night in March of 1973, and unbeknown to PM Gough Whitlam, Attorney General, Senator Lionel Murphy QC, with a squad of Federal Police raided the offices of ASIO in Canberra and on St Kilda Rd, Melbourne.
If 120,000 illegal immigrants poured unimpeded through Australia’s airports under Rudd and Gillard, and home-grown Islamic extremists can come and go as they please on each others’ passports, then our current Islamic problem is of our own making.
In a sharp response to the Government’s foreshadowed legislation on home grown terrorism, Australia’s Grand Mufti, Ibrahim Abu Mohammad, (pictured right) has demanded Muslims be allowed to travel where they wish overseas and be allowed unrestricted re-entry to Australia. He claimed this was a basic right of all Muslims. In an incredible statement he reassured Australians that, if necessary, “We will re-educate them when they return.”
If Obama had nipped it in the bud in January the Islamic State would still be cowering under a rock somewhere in northern Syria. It claims an army of 10,000 (in Arabic that means 5,000) and that would barely make a decent crowd at an ARL match.
I tried to find some acts of terrorism committed by those of us of Anglo-Saxon heritage. I realise you said we were also guilty of these atrocities, so I searched and searched but I could only find ones committed in an Islamic context. I'm terrible at researching. So perhaps you could help me out here with some Anglo-Saxon events because it would be good if I had a complete list and not just Islamic ones... it really does make last month's list look a bit unbalanced.
Australia’s Islamic minority of 2.21 per cent is holding a squirrel grip on our Parliament. At least 15 Federal seats are now in the hands of Islamic voters with populations of between 5 per cent and 22.67 per cent with many more seats likely to swing on the Islamic vote.
When a war-weary America decided “I’m out of here”, it left Iraq in an insoluble mess, exhibiting the stupidity of invading a country, killing its tyrant, installing a new government and simply pissing off.
In an astonishing Fairfax report, compiled from freedom of information documents, an estimated 120,000 illegal entrants flew into Australia between the years 2008 and 2013... and they remain here on fake passports and false documents.
In a shock move last night Russia’s Vladimir Putin slammed reciprocal sanctions on Europe and the West in a clear case of self harm, at the same time he has doubled the Russian military presence on the border in response to an imminent Ukrainian attack.
A dead three year-old girl, bloodied and limp, is rushed to a school yard and laid on her back. Dead adults are also dragged to the school, leaving trails of blood on the asphalt while Aljazeera cameras whirl.
Mike Carlton too far Left even for Fairfax? It seems so, as the hoary old chestnut of “he decided to resign” was trotted out today by Fairfax management.
