ABBOTT CLOSE, BUT NOT THERE YET
...Shorten on another planet and Milne in her own Green galaxy
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
Abbott referred to “Islamic fanatics” for the first time today and that’s a quantum leap from his recent rhetoric. “No more will they have the benefit of the doubt” was a reference to residency afforded Muslims who take advantage of our welfare system while planning our demise.
“No more tolerance for hate preachers” was a reference to the 500 members of Hizb’ ut Tarir. But Abbott does not intend outlawing this grubby little nest of vipers that freely operates under our noses.
ASIO mistakenly believes to ban this evil organisation that supports and recruits for ISIS would “force them underground” so Abbott just wants their hate preachers banned. What a load of frog droppings!
A banned “hate preacher” would be immediately replaced with another, and they get smarter each time. The champions of honour killings, Hizb’ut Tarir, actively recruits for the ISIS and advises on ways to arrive in and leave Syria undetected by Australian authorities.
At the moment they are advising recruits to ignore Turkey and arrive via the Maldives with dual passports before flying to Cyprus and Lebanon.
This terrorist organisation has no place in Australia and ASIO and the AFP should already have their 500 members under surveillance. If not, why not? Permitting them valuable legitimacy is just more woolly thinking by security agencies.
Why keep a coven of vampires in your house just so you can see where they are... wouldn't it make more sense to just kick them out?
But at least Abbott has taken a step toward what most Australians want from him, and that is to face this Islamic disaster, name it and deal with it.
Bill Shorten had no choice but to reluctantly agree to the sterner measures advised in the report on terrorism. But he protected his Islamic electoral base by praising Islamic leaders for their “cooperation” in de-radicalising their youth. Hmmm.
His unconvincing Press conference exposed his utter irrelevance when he referred to the ISIS committing atrocities on Sunnis.
No, Billy boy, the ISIS is Sunni and their atrocities are committed on Shia Muslims. Shia Iran is now inside Iraq, effectively combating the Sunnis, supplanting the role of an immoral and derelict US President.
Of course the Press gallery did not question his error, they were more concerned with what private conversations Abbott may have had with his Defence chiefs regarding the possible deployment of troops in Iraq and Ukraine.
And not a word from the gallery about the alternative treasurer, Chris Bowen, not knowing the tax threshold... nor his embarrassingly ridiculous explanation. Just imagine the Press furore had Joe Hockey not been able to quote the tax threshold. At least a full week of page ones!
Darling of the ABC, Christine Milne declared that Abbott was using terrorism as a distraction from his leadership troubles. Oh dear.
Bloody hell, how this un-Australian, sour-faced, dangerous little female Green gopher ever gets air time is confounding?
