* Â Not a word about WHO is arriving illegally on these shores, therefore it is safe to presume that increasing numbers of Muhammedan’s Â are determined to leave their Islamic hell-holes behind to seek the benefits of an infidel welfare state. Once again: Muslims from the Middle East who have to travel through Â two, three or more Muslim countries to arrive here, are not asylum seekers. They are not immigrants, they are not refugees or cue-jumpers: they are invaders. We have no obligation to assist them.
Those who have sworn to protect us are obliged to repatriate them as soon as possible.

Could there be, like, aÂ connection?:
YET another group of asylum seekers has reached Australian waters – the fourth in a fortnight… Navy patrol boat HMAS Albany intercepted 49 suspected asylum seekers – thought to be mostly Afghan men – two nautical miles off Ashmore Reef, 610km north of Broome at about midday yesterday.
It was theÂ sixth boat to arrive this year, and the 13th since September, when the Rudd Government announced measures aimed at softening Australia’s treatment of refugeesfrom the hardline approach adopted by the Howard government.
This year’s boats have ferried 264 passengers to Australia and 12 crew members – a total of 276 unauthorised arrivals compared with seven boats last year carrying a total of 179 people, including crew.
John Howard’s “inhuman” policies stopped not just the people smugglers but the deaths at sea. If some of these boats lured here by Kevin Rudd now sink, how truly “kinder” is he?
Not quite the penniless, no-options refugees you’d imagine helping:Â
SOME of the families in detention on Christmas IslandÂ spent almost two months in hotel accommodationÂ in Indonesia before travelling to a small island for a three-day boat trip to the tiny Australian territory.
Yet their assets ironically suggest these are skilled people more likely to settle in successfully than are many “real” refugees plucked from no-hope refugee camps.
Lured by Rudd to their deaths?
Two other passengers are missing, possibly drowned, while the remaining 44 boatpeople who were on board are suffering a range of injuries, including serious burns, sources told The Australian.
Here is the Rudd Government’s “people overboard” scandal. But I doubt there’s a mood to report this as SIEV X was reported under Howard.
This takes some beating. Rudd can weaken our people smuggling laws to seem “good”, but wants Indonesia to toughen its own laws to save him from the consequences. Hear that straight from Home Affairs Minister Bob Debus:
He said he hoped Indonesia would toughen its people smuggling laws. “We are in negotiation … and have been for some time with the Indonesians,’’ he said. ”We are hopeful that they will change a number of their laws, particularly the laws that affect people smuggling directly.’’
It’s not just children overboard, but everyone, if WA Premier Colin Barnett is right:
Asylum seekers doused their boat in petrol before a fatal dawn explosionÂ off the north-west Australian coast, West Australian Premier Colin Barnett says.
