ABBOTT DODGES THE MOZZIES... WINK, WINK
and just wait ‘til S.H-Y finds out
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.
Turkmen, Yazidis, Kurds, Armenians, Roman Catholic Arabs... if he looks hard enough Tony Abbott might even find a few ethnically persecuted Babylonians still wandering around. But all 12,000 will come from those in camps and not from those flooding Europe.
Immediately after Abbott’s shock announcement that these places were to be found above and beyond our current migrant intake, the Oz ‘Guardian’ chased up Australia's diminutive Grand Mufti, Ibrahim Abu Mohamed, for a predictable comment.
Now, a Grand Mufti’s singular role is to interpret Shariah Law (Sunni of course) for the ignorant Muslim masses. You know, all that lawyer stuff about whether a good Muslim bloke can penetrate his betrothed before or after she turns six, how many times he can bash his other wives if they complain, whether his favourite shaggy goat can be consumed following Ramadan, all that important Shariah stuff. And this little Mufti knows his shit eh?
Well, he was the only one, apart from the Guardian reporter, who twigged that Australia’s radical Sunni parish was not about to be augmented by any of Abbott’s 12,000 needy asylum seekers. And the dear little fella wasn’t happy.
Wot? no Sunni Musims? “That’s discriminatory”, he yelled into the attentive Guardian reporter’s Iphone. "It’s yet another form of discrimination, or marginalisation and targeting of Muslims", he said.
Meanwhile the European Union member state of Slovakia announced that it also would only be taking Christian refugees, and not Muslims. Oooh! Is that xenophobic or racist? No, not really, it's just that Slovakians are as happy as pigs in shit when there are no Muslims around, I guess.
Slovakia's Interior ministry spokesman Ivan Netik said that his country's policy is not discriminatory, "We want to help Europe with the migration issue” he said. “We could take 800 Muslims but we don't have any mosques in Slovakia so how can Muslims be integrated if they are not going to like it here?" Mr Netik asked.
Obviously Mr Netik reckons there's never likely to be any mosques either. He understands that mosques are invariably at the source of Islamic trouble, especially after Friday prayers.
Tony Abbott says he will be "even handed", but I’ll bet my left testicle there isn’t one Muslim in that list of 12,000... and much to the chagrin of the UNHCR.
You see, Christians vote either way, but Muslims only vote one way... for the Party that promotes welfare.
