Nope, Nope Nope': Tony Abbott Says No Rohingya Refugees to Australia
Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, confirmed Thursday that none of the more than 8,000 Rohingya refugees caught in a weeks-long standoff at sea will be resettled in Australia. Overnight the governments of Indonesia and Malaysia agreed to give temporary shelter to the thousands of Rohingya Muslim migrants fleeing Burma and Bangladesh. And Gambia has offered to resettle all Rohingya refugees.
Some have been stranded at sea for weeks after Thai authorities closed a well-used trafficking route out of Burma and the people smugglers jumped ship and left their human cargo to starve. The US has indicated it is willing to take some of the refugees, and the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees has urged Australia to work with its neighbours in finding a solution.
But the prime minister has closed the door on suggestions some could be resettled in Australia: “Nope, nope, nope. I’m sorry. If you want to start a new life, you come through the front door, not through the back door.” (Published on 21 May 2015)
Yesterday Indonesia reminded Australia that, as a UN signatory to the refugee convention, we are obliged to assist 8,000 Rohingya stranded at sea. Tony Abbott has shrugged off the rebuke, saying “it would be utterly irresponsible [to] reward people for doing something so dangerous”
Even the Rohingya Muslims’ own native country of Bangladesh won’t take them back and have turned their boats around when they have tried to land there in the past. (See links below)

One Lefty recently told me when I asked why they’re so hard on the church and can’t suck up enough to Islam: “you gotta kick them when they’re down”. The reality is that there is far more child abuse in Islam because their religion not only permits it, its their ‘prophet’Muhammad, who did it and therefore it can’t be wrong. The pedophile churchmen who are accused of wrongdoing cannot rely on scripture for support. They did wrong, against the law and against their religion.
THE students were wrong. Without a doubt, the representatives of the Muslim Students’ Association (MSA) at UWS’s Parramatta campus made a mistake in requesting the segregation of men and women at a recent event.
A recent article in The Daily Telegraph implied the university tolerates a form of subtle sexism by virtue of what occurred. The university rejects this assertion.
UWS has never condoned gender segregation, and all of our students are well aware of this.
It will not recur at any future event held on our campuses by any student or community group.
No such luck in the UK:

The way many Iraqis view it, the collapse of the Ramadi garrison—an event in which barely a few hundred Islamic State militants routed a vastly more numerous Iraqi security force—equals in its significance the fall of Iraq’s second-largest city of Mosul last summer. That milestone forced President Barack Obama to send troops to Iraq just 2½ years after withdrawing them.
“What happened is a major catastrophe,” said prominent Iraqi lawmaker Dhiaa al-Assadi…
In a May 16 interview with Al-Tanasuh TV, Libyan Cleric Muhammad Bouajila, a member of the Libyan Ulema Association, explained that in principle, beheadings and body mutilation are prohibited, but are allowed under certain circumstances “especially if this serves to strike terror in the heart” of the enemy. Sheik Bouajila further commented that Muslims should fight non-Muslims who refuse to convert to Islam or pay the jizya poll tax. Al-Tanasuh TV is owned by Sadiq Al-Ghariani, Mufti of Libya who is associated with the Libya Dawn forces. (Published on 21 May 2015, MEMRI TV)
