Australia’s refugee deal with Cambodia infuriates ‘human rights’ industry activists

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 29, 2014

I meant to write this post last week as the deal was coming to fruition and the human rights gangsters/no borders activists were screaming their heads off, but didn’t get to it and now I see that the deal has been sealed.

Immigration Minister Scott Morrison working to save Australia from the No-borders movement.

Australia is planning to allow some ‘asylum seekers’ who broke into Australia illegally to choose to be resettled in Cambodia.

The Abbott government’s immigration minister Scott Morrison got into hot water some months ago by asking (or stating) this very important point:

Why do we assume that asylum seekers have a right to resettlement in a first-world country?

That is a really good point, if they are seeking freedom from persecution, what is wrong with Cambodia?  Or, are they all really just economic migrants masquerading as persecuted people.

Here is the news from Friday at Yahoo News:

Australia’s refugee resettlement deal with Cambodia is a long-term arrangement that will start small but build over time, Immigration Minister Scott Morrison said.

The deal, announced on Friday and many months in the making, has been condemned by the United Nations’ refugee agency and human rights advocates.

Speaking to the ABC’s AM program, Mr Morrison said four or five refugees will be resettled in Cambodia in the early stages, but only time will tell how many refugees will make the move.

“And it’ll be based on the success of the program over time. And of course it’s a voluntary program,” he said.

He said it was a long-term agreement and Cambodia would determine how many refugees it would accept.

And, here is the story I was going to post last week from  The Australian ( Charities call Cambodia refugee resettlement deal immoral):

Mr Morrison, who has lobbied for developing nations to share a higher burden of the world’s refugees, said the arrangement with Cambodia would be “an ongoing, developing relationship” to build the country’s capacity to offer protection to refugees.

Former Family Court chief justice Alastair Nicholson, speaking on behalf of a coalition of charities, described the proposal as “inappropriate, immoral and likely illegal”.

“It is inappropriate because Cambodia has no capacity within its social sector to take an influx of refugees. Immoral because these vulnerable people are Australia’s responsibility, and while we await the detail, it appears illegal in contravening Australia’s humanitarian and refugee obligations to vulnerable children and families,” Mr Nicholson said.

[....]

 Mr Nicholson’s comments were endorsed by a coalition of charities including UNICEF Australia, Save the Children, Plan International Australia, World Vision, Amnesty International, Refugee Council of Australia, International Detention Coalition and Children’s Rights International.

The proof of progress is in the statistics! 

The Australian government’s hard line position against open borders (against an asylum-seeker free-for-all) has put Australia in the category of only a few advanced countries whose “asylum seeker” numbers have actually gone down.  See the recently released UN report we told you about here.  It can be done, but most Western governments, including the US, have apparently no will to live.

Can you just imagine how ticked-off UNHCR Antonio Guterres must be at Australia!  He likely fears that some other countries might grow a spine!

New UNHCR report on asylum: US is second most desirable nation in the world for asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 28, 2014

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees has released his ‘mid-year’ report and it’s no surprise asylum claims are up world-wide.

For clarification, asylum seekers are people who get into another country on their own and then apply for asylum in hopes of being declared legitimate refugees a designation which brings with it access to social services and usually puts them on track for citizenship in their new country.   The Tsarnaev family had been granted asylum and thus were called political refugees.  The no-borders agitators are trying to make the case that the ‘Unaccompanied alien children’ fit this category as well.

A few countries have temporary asylum.  In the US if you are granted asylum you are in!

UNHCR Antonio Guterres, former President of the Socialist International, said that the US has pledged “open-ended” numbers for Syrian refugee resettlement! http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/06/30/unhcr-says-us-has-pledged-open-ended-resettlement-numbers-for-syrians/

The other track for potential refugees is to be selected by the UN abroad and then to be assigned to a resettlement country—most are assigned to the US!

From the Malta Independent:

A UNHCR report released today shows that the number of people seeking refugee status in industrialized countries continued to climb in the first half of 2014, driven by the wars in Syria and Iraq as well as conflict and instability in Afghanistan, Eritrea and elsewhere.

[....]

We are clearly into an era of growing conflict,” said UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres. “The global humanitarian system is already in great difficulty. The international community needs to prepare their populations for the reality that in the absence of solutions to conflict more and more people are going to need refuge and care in the coming months and years. Unfortunately, it is not clear that the resources and the access to asylum will be available to help them.”

Despite the net overall increase in new claims shown in the report, more than two thirds of these were in just six countries – Germany, the United States, France, Sweden, Turkey and Italy.

Central Europe, in particular Hungary and Poland, as well as Australia saw declines in the numbers of people asking to be accepted as refugees.   [The Abbott government is clearly having success in pushing back the illegal alien boats!---ed]

Go here for the whole report.  The UN is happy to help you replace your population!

Afghan teen shot dead in Australia after stabbing counter-terrorism officers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2014

Breaking news from Down Under thanks to ‘pungentpeppers.’ 

It was just a few days ago Australian authorities arrested suspected Jihadists in a massive terror bust, here.  Now this….

From the Herald Sun:

One of many photos from the crime scene

UPDATE: A MUSLIM teen shot dead after he stabbed two counter-terrorism officers was a member of a radical Islamic group that was raided in Melbourne’s southeast two years ago.

Islamic Council of Victoria secretary Ghaith Krayem said members of Al Furqan told him that the 18-year-old Afghani man, described this morning as a “known terror suspect”, hadn’t been a part of the group for a while.

Al Furqan Information Centre in Springvale South was raided by counter-terrorism squads in 2012. It is thought the teenager came to the authorities attention following the raids.

It comes as police say they had “no choice” but to shoot dead the Narre Warren man after he stabbed the two officers outside Endeavour Hills police station last night.

The Joint Counter Terrorism Taskforce had been monitoring the teenager for a number of months, Victoria Police chief commissioner Ken Lay said.

There is a lot more plus photos, here.

Australians foil plans in Muslim migrant community to behead Australian

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 18, 2014

Daniel Greenfield had the story yesterday, here, and thanks to reader Ed for sending it to us.

Here is Greenfield at Frontpage magazine (with lots of photos):

Islamic terror doesn’t stay in Iraq. It doesn’t stay in Afghanistan. It follows the trail of Muslim migrants and settlers.

And here is the full story at Australia’s ABC News:

Police say a large-scale anti-terrorism raid in Sydney this morning has foiled a plot to “commit violent acts” in Australia, including a plan to behead a member of the public.

More than 800 officers launched the raids as part of Operation Appleby in suburbs across Sydney’s west and north-west, with a further 70 police involved in raids on properties in Brisbane’s south.

Police said 15 people had been detained in Sydney as part of the operation between NSW officers, the Australian Federal Police and ASIO.

Court documents are expected to reveal that the raids, at 25 different properties, were aimed at a cell which planned to behead a member of the public in Sydney.

The documents are expected to say that the plan involved snatching a random member of the public in Sydney, draping them in an Islamic State group (IS) flag and beheading them on camera.

There is more….

Regular readers know that Australia is having the same problem as Europe with illegal migrants—mostly from Muslim countries—attempting to break into the country.

But, they also have a growing Muslim ‘community’ from years past as they opened their doors to “refugees.”  The Abbott government is trying to get it under control now and Australia is one of only a few countries in the world at least seriously attempting to save itself.

See our Australia category (143 previous posts).  See especially this recent post that brought thousands of readers to RRW.

Why do you think it is that in Europe and in Australia, Muslims feel safe carrying signs like this one?

Australian website (Pickering Post) posts what the Australian Left-media doesn’t want you to see

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 24, 2014

A reader from Australia just sent me this website (which we will add to our blogroll) and recommended we read it from time to time.  We will.

I picked this recent post to give you a taste of what is happening Down Under with its ever-expanding Muslim immigrant (refugee!) population.  Our Australian reader is not optimistic about Australia’s long-term survival.  I had just been thinking this morning about a new category for RRW—So, what did they expect? (when admitting Muslim migrants to western democracies).

 

If you thought you might escape to Australia—forget it!

From The Pickering Post (entitled: How the hell did we let this happen?) by Rennie Carter:

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.

Today we have opened the floodgates to a people who hate us before they have even gotten off the boat. In fact it is worse! It is ILLEGAL to like us. To even befriend us. Sure they will put their hand out for our benefits, but they will hate the hand that it came from. And it is not me or some Australian infidel crackpot who is saying this. It is them!

A prominent text in the Islamic Bookstore in the retail hub of Lakemba, billed as “your superstore of Islamic knowledge”, asks the question for those Muslims who are teetering on the brink of liking an Australian – “Is it allowed to support and love disbelievers?”  Answer: “No, it is not allowed.” So there – it’s final! We are not allowed to be liked.

Worse! A large sign screams from the side of a building, “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger!” So they even hate our God/s!

I must thank the PP’s ‘Ingrid’ for bringing this to light for me… an article by Tim Blair of the Daily Telegraph. He spent some time in Lakemba, which through bad luck or atrocious management, is now a Muslim stronghold where its new inhabitants are allowed to display signs that would offend the hell out of most Australians and to scream insults at our women as they pass them in the street.

The article goes on, “A few weeks ago a large crowd of mostly young men assembled outside the Lakemba Hotel. Waving black flags, the men chanted: ‘Palestine is Muslim land. The solution is jihad’.”

Tim Blair said, “I asked a non-Islamic local about that night. ‘You should see them when they really go off,’ she said. ‘That was nothing.’ Another non-Islamic woman said young men sometimes shouted ‘sharmuta’ at her from their cars. She looked up the word online and discovered it was an Arabic term for prostitute.”

Apart from hating infidel Australians and Australian ‘prostitutes’ -this mob also give over shelf space, in their doctrine superstore, to books giving the lowdown on the Jews.

Read it all.

I also found the story about fraud in Australia’s customs and immigration department fascinating. Yikes!  You know it has to be going on here in America too!

Australia may take 4,000 Christian Iraqi and Syrian refugees

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 14, 2014

The Abbott government, which is constantly beaten-up by those who want Australia to take in the world, is considering resettling persecuted Christians, but that isn’t enough for the no-borders pushers.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

The Abbott government is considering offering refuge to as many as 4000 Iraqis and Syrians after the new Anglican Primate of Australia, Philip Freier, called for asylum in Australia for Christians facing slaughter in northern Iraq.

Dr Freier, Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne, said he had written to Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Immigration Minister Scott Morrison asking that they emulate France in offering refuge to Christians facing forced conversion to Islam or death.

By the way, has anyone seen anything from the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service or any of the other US “religious” resettlement contractors saying we should be taking CHRISTIANS into the US now?  Or, are they so politically-correct and fearful of saying anything against Islam that they keep their mouths shut?

(New readers of RRW probably don’t know that Catholics and Lutherans are responsible for much of the Muslim refugee resettlement happening in the US right now.)

Adam Bandt wants to know why Abbott treats those in detention differently than persecuted Christians from Iraq. Could it be that those in detention have broken the law and won’t make good citizens.

Greens call out Abbott

The text of the Sydney Morning Herald story does not include anything from the Green Party, but there is a clip of Green Party leader Adam Bandt criticizing Tony Abbott for what he calls hypocrisy because while perhaps agreeing to take 4,000 refugees now, the government is holding hundreds of Iraqis in detention.  He wonders why the disparity in treatment.

It is pretty obvious to me!   Those in detention are mostly Muslims who broke into Australia illegally—not persecuted Christians running for their lives at the moment.

Here is the caption under the film clip:

PM needs to decide if he’s a humanitarian or a hypocrite: Greens

Granting extra places to refugees fleeing Iraq is a good start, but it would be hypocritical of the government to send refugees already in detention back to Iraq says Adam Bandt.

See all of our coverage of the migrant problem in Australia by clicking here (141 previous posts!).  See especially Australia’s Muslim migrants call for Caliphate.  What does Bandt not see about the difference between Muslims and Christians as prospective new Aussies?

Australia’s Muslim migrants call for caliphate from the streets of Sydney

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 6, 2014

On the streets of Sydney, Australia

 

How many times have I heard in recent years some American say,  ‘I’m going to escape to Australia!’ 

Don’t be in a hurry to buy that ticket!   First, scroll through our Australia category (140 previous posts) and check out the problems there with the changing face of Australia.

Here is a story from earlier in the week (you may have seen it already) about a pro-Palestinian demonstration by Islamists (Hamas supporters) in Sydney.

How did Australia get so many Muslims—from refugee resettlement and from years of boat people (illegal aliens from Muslim countries) being admitted to the country by previous administrations.

From Andrew Bolt writing at The Herald Sun (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

A COUPLE of hundred men marched past the Lakemba Hotel in Sydney a week ago, chanting their support for Gaza, and with it a threat.

Here is what they shouted while waving black flags of jihad — and pray Labor finally listens:

Palestine is Muslim land

The solution is Jihad …

You can never stop Islam

From Australia to al Sham (Syria)

One umma (Muslim community) hand in hand

From Lakemba to Gaza

One call “khalifa” (Caliphate)

That chant is a wake-up for a political class now too cowed or craven to judge between the civilised and the primitive.

Read it all and learn what demographic change has wrought Down Under.

Why do we bring you news from other western countries undergoing radical demographic change?  First, and foremost so that you know that a worldwide invasion by the third world (encouraged by the Hard Left) is well underway and thus the demographic/political threat to western civilization is perhaps the greatest it’s ever been certainly in the last few centuries.

Here is another piece on Australia I would like you to see:  Refugee Activists make an industry out of bending the truth.

Australia: “most multicultural society on earth” wants more immigrants! Who knew!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 18, 2014

That’s what a recent article in The Australian reports as it tells us that 20% of respondents want more migrants to come to Australia in an article titled, Two-Thirds Majority Back Current or Higher Immigration Intake.

 

Here are the charming 20% who want higher levels of immigration to Australia as the Abbott government turns back asylum seekers. https://news.vice.com/article/the-australian-navy-is-towing-asylum-seekers-back-out-to-sea

 

I had to read this article a couple of times to figure out what the point of it all might be and am still not sure, except to use a “news” story to sway public opinion.

Remember, readers, as we know so well, Tony Abbott, Australia’s present Prime Minister was elected only last year because of his platform (which he apparently is working on daily to hear the squealing out of the UN) to slow the flow of boat people (faux asylim seekers) breaking into Australia.  The citizens there were completely fed up!

We frequently cite Australia, Israel and Bulgaria as three countries seriously attempting to close their borders.

Check out the article yourself (here is a bit of it) posted at American Renaissance (with some good commentary).   One thing seems clear, the pollsters polled heavily in immigrant neighborhoods and among young, rich, city dwellers.

Higher migration levels are favoured by a fifth of Australians, in an exclusive Newspoll survey revealing robust support for the most multicultural society on earth.

Nearly half the people ­surveyed support Australia’s ­existing immigration intake, which settled 190,000 immigrants last year in the world’s largest per capita intake. Two-thirds were skilled migrants.

Twenty-two per cent favour an even higher intake, with support strongest among the young, those on high incomes and capital city-dwellers.

European, African and Asian migration enjoys the strongest public support, with 26 per cent of Australians desiring more ­migrants from Europe. Another 18 per cent want to see more Asian migrants, and 20 per cent support more immigration from Africa.

In contrast, just 14 per cent of Australians want to see more Muslim migrants, and 37 per cent favour a cut.

Read it all.

By the way, about the same number (20%) of respondents who want higher immigration levels also say that Australians are racists.

LOL! This article could just as well have been titled:  86% of Australians polled want less Muslim migrants admitted to Australia.  I guess that would mean that some of the immigrants polled and some of the young, rich, city dwellers are Islamophobic.   Gee, I wonder why?

For new readers, see our Australia category with over 100 previous posts.  We especially want American readers to know that the invasion by the third world is happening in every advanced society and you need to know how others are handling the demographic upheaval.  Western society is under siege.

Here is a good idea! Pay them to go home as Australia is doing

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 22, 2014

It is infinitely cheaper than putting them on the welfare rolls for decades!

Of course the UN will scream like a stuck pig if the US should try such a thing!  But, after all, most are economic migrants and not legitimate refugees.

As we have reported previously on many occasions, Australia, Israel and Bulgaria are three countries (international pockets of resistance!) willing to take the heat from “humanitarian” scolds in order to save their countries from invasion.

Abbott and Morrison: We are paying them off to go home! Alas, if only we had leaders like these!

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

The Abbott government is offering asylum seekers on Manus Island and Nauru detention centres up to $10,000 to abandon their hope of resettlement in Australia and voluntarily return to the country they fled from.

The revelation comes as the High Court on Friday issued a stunning rebuke to the Abbott government’s border protection policy, striking down its decision to to refuse to issue permanent protection visas to boat arrivals found to be refugees.

In two unanimous decisions, with implications for thousands of boat arrivals, the court ruled that Immigration Minister Scott Morrison’s decision to impose a cap on the number of places in Australia’s refugee intake for boat arrivals was invalid.

The sudden boost in payments is the latest tactic being used by the Abbott government to cement its hardline stance against asylum seekers who come to Australia without a visa.

UN:  Australia slipping!  (so what!)

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees on Friday showed Australia’s efforts to help alleviate the crisis have stagnated or worsened, with the country sliding backwards in the global rankings, according to some measures.

Australia now ranks 17th in the world to resettle refugees, according to the Refugee Council of Australia.

See our Australia category for many more posts on clever Australian solutions.

Australia is raising fresh Jihadists in its immigrant/refugee population too!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 19, 2014

Yesterday we reported that Jihadists are continuing to recruit in the Somali refugee neighborhoods of Minneapolis.

In response, reader FatherJon from Australia brought a similar story to us from Down Under.  It is from late last year but well worth having a look at again now, especially as the American media may be on the cusp of ‘getting it’ about the Islamic imperative as the nightmare in Iraq continues to unfold.

One young “Australian” who joined the rebels in Syria.

The story is about Australian citizens (previously granted refuge there) going to join the rebels in Syria.

From the Sydney Morning Herald (I’ve taken snips not necessarily in order):

”They don’t consider themselves restricted to a particular country; they see themselves as part of the global ummah [Islamic nation],” he ( University of Western Sydney’s Dr Jan Alisaid). ‘‘Islam brings them together, not Syria.”

[....]

Since the conflict began, about 100 Australians, mostly Lebanese-Australian dual citizens, have travelled to fight, and many more have become embroiled in sectarian violence at home.

Lebanon and Syria have a history of hostility but social media and the emergence of extremist groups in Sydney have led many young Australians to view it as a cause to die for.

[....]

The emergence of controversial and conservative Muslim groups in Sydney, such as Bankstown’s Al Risalah community centre, the pan-Islamic political organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir and the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah Association, which runs several mosques and the Bukhari House bookstore and prayer hall in Auburn, has created fear that young people are being indoctrinated.

Will they bring their new skills “home” to Australia?

Police have described Australians travelling to Syria as a ”game-changer” for national security because of the risk of bringing skills, knowledge and radicalised views back home.

The 100 believed to have fought in Syria far exceeds the highest estimates of Australian jihadists involved in previous overseas conflicts, Monash University terrorism researcher, Andrew Zammit, said.

Naive western governments and their NGO enablers offer them the “American Dream”  (or Australian Dream!) and what do they do, raise up young healthy warriors for Allah.

Since this article is nearly 6 months old, we can only hope that most of the 100 “Australian”  Jihadists are dead already.

LOL! At the moment I’m thinking of all the people, dissatisfied with America’s direction, who have said to me over the last few years—I’m going to escape to Australia!  Good luck with that!

Although I must say, Australia, Israel and Bulgaria are the three non-Muslim countries we have identified which are actively attempting to close their borders and save themselves from mostly Muslim invaders.  We have written 137 previous posts on Australia. Ambitious readers! click here, to view those reports.
