Another Good Refugee?

Michael Galak, in an article, How to Choose Better Immigrants, suggested selecting immigrants according to the record of immigrant groups already settled in Australia.

As an indicator of future behaviour, the past is one of the most reliable predictors we have. When we look for someone to do a job of work, the most important criterion in our decision is the previous experience of the individual... The assessment of an individual’s dangerousness is also based mostly on any history of violence.  

 If we were to accept that a group of people from the same background would, statistically, have some common features, then the same group of people would statistically have similar responses to the same conditions, pressures and challenges…It therefore makes no sense not to use the previous integration and absorption track record of various immigrant groups in assessing their future members’ statistical suitability for settlement in Australia…If certain groups are unsuccessful in the process of integration in Australia, should not we start asking hard-nosed questions: 

• Do we want these people? 
• Do we need these people? 
• Are they likely to be successfully absorbed and integrated into the complex and multicoloured fabric of contemporary Australia? 
• Are they likely to be a drain on the public purse? 
• Are members of these groups so reliant on government largesse that they draw unemployment benefits generation after generation?
• Are they peaceful? 
• Is there statistically valid evidence of increased violent crime or incarceration among the group? 
• Are they paying their fair share of taxes? 
• Are subsequent generations, the children of the original immigrants, working, studying and intermarrying with Australians from outside their group?
• Or does this progeny give reasons for concern by their anti-social behaviour? 
On the other hand, with the groups that are successful in their integration efforts—should we not increase their immigration numbers and reduce or abolish completely the numbers of the unsuccessful?

I was reminded of this when I read an account of a young couple who recently pleaded guilty to drug offences:

A JUDGE has castigated a man for involving his wife in importing opium to Melbourne and told him to apologise to her as she wept beside him in a County Court dock.
Judge Liz Gaynor ensured an Arabic interpreter translated clearly for Reza Alkhafaji as she criticised him for causing Somayeh Bildash's court appearance.
''This not a good way to treat your wife, this is not a humane way to treat your wife,'' she told Alkhafaji, who sponsored his wife to migrate Australia after their 2008 arranged marriage in Iran.
Bildash heard Judge Gaynor tell Alkhafaji, 34, he ''owed'' her an apology and ''kind treatment because you are very much in the wrong''.
The court was told Bildash, 26, had wanted to be a child carer, but instead cleaned toilets for $7 an hour and had been isolated in Melbourne with her husband who was addicted to opium.
A psychologist reported that she came from an extremely poor family in Iran, had no family in Melbourne and that the ''traditional'' marriage meant she had to obey her husband.
Defence lawyer Anthony Brand described her home life as ''terrible'', saying the cultural and traditional values in the relationship ''placed her in an almost impossible position''.
He agreed with Judge Gaynor that Bildash's role in the offence did not amount to ''marital coercion'' but it was close to it.
Prosecutor Sian Coidan said authorities found 990 grams of opium in the shoulder pads of four jackets in a bag addressed to Alkhafaji.
She agreed with Judge Gaynor that if it were not for Alkhafaji's drug habit, Bildash would not have offended.
Alkhafaji's lawyer, Christopher Farrington, said he was a qualified hairdresser who arrived illegally in Australia 10 years ago as a refugee, but had never worked and survived on a disability support pension.
Mr Farrington said Iraqi-born Alkhafaji became addicted after using opium for pain relief following two operations, while a psychologist found he was not antisocial or vulnerable to criminality.

I decided to apply Galak’s questions to this couple.

• Are they likely to be successfully absorbed and integrated into the complex and multicoloured fabric of contemporary Australia? 
NO. HE IS TREATING HIS WIFE EXACTLY AS HE WOULD TREAT HER IN AN ISLAMIC COUNTRY. SHE WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO INTEGRATE AND ANY FUTURE CHILDREN WILL LIKELY BE SIMILARLY SEGREGATED.
• Are they likely to be a drain on the public purse? 
YES. HE HAS NEVER WORKED IN THE 10 YEARS HE HAS BEEN HERE AND DRAWS A DISABILITY SUPPORT PENSION.
• Are members of these groups so reliant on government largesse that they draw unemployment benefits generation after generation?
YES,
• Are they peaceful? 
UNKNOWN.
• Is there statistically valid evidence of increased violent crime or incarceration among the group? 
YES, GIVEN THAT THEIR HOME COUNTRIES ARE IRAN AND IRAQ.
• Are they paying their fair share of taxes? 
IT IS DOUBTFUL THAT THEY ARE PAYING ANY. INDEED THEIR CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES ARE COSTING THE TAXPAYERS MONEY.
AND BY THE WAY, HOW COME HE NEEDS AN INTERPRETER IF HE’S BEEN HERE 10 YEARS?
• Are subsequent generations, the children of the original immigrants, working, studying and intermarrying with Australians from outside their group?
WITH AN UNEMPLOYED FATHER AND SUBJUGATED MOTHER, CHANCES ARE ANY CHILDREN WILL BE UNPRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY AT BEST.

Finally, I’ll leave 2 of Galak’s questions for readers to answer:

• Do we want these people? 
• Do we need these people?

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

History - Infidels' Resistance

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).

In the post 9/11 era of this modern-world, Islamists around the globe are busy with ‘damage control utopia’ in order to correct the image of religion Islam. We all know that the nucleus of Islam are: Quran, Hadiths (Sunnah) supported by Islamic histories and biographies recorded by various famous Islamic scholars and historians.
