Around Australia: whole lotta howling and wingeing going on…

Andrew Bolt:

No, Chief Commissioner, the problem is not us

Chief Commissioner Simon Overland makes a worthy plea for tolerance after the arrest of four Somalis and one Lebanese Australia for allegedly plotting terrorism:

We must exercise restraint and understand that while these are very serious charges they are in no way reflective of the broader Somali or Islamic community. They are not terrorists. They do not support terrorism. They are peaceful communities, who have integrated well and deserve our respect and understanding.

“Integrated well” is a white lie, but forgiveable, given that Overland is the head of Victoria Police, not the Immigration Minister, and is rightly keen to ensure that young Muslim men are not treated with such hostility that they naturally arc up.

But Overland overreaches, playing into the hands of extremists by turning responsibility for Muslim extremism from Muslim communities to non-Muslim Australians: More

F*#k Tolerance! Muslims Don’t Tolerate Us!

No wonder some Muslims won’t speak out

One of the men arrested in Melbourne this week over an alleged terrorist plot has been investigated before over the alleged terrorising of a cleric’s son:

ACCUSED terrorist Wissam Mahmoud Fattal was one of a group of men investigated over a brutal assault on the son of Australia’s highest-ranked Islamic cleric.

The mufti’s son was attacked allegedly because his views were too moderate. The street bashing, during Ramadan last year, was investigated by police but no charges were laid…

Mr Imam is the son of Sheik Fehmi Naji el-Imam, Australia’s Islamic mufti and the leader of the Preston mosque. Mr Imam, who is chief executive of the Islamic Council of Victoria, has declined to talk about the attack. More

Labor MP Kelvin Thomson calls for limiting (Islamic?) immigration

Reduce intake of immigrants, MP Kelvin Thomson says

THE fight against home-grown terrorists can be aided by slashing Australia’s annual migrant intake and a sharp reduction in the issuing of temporary work visas, according to Labor Party federal MP Kelvin Thomson.

Since it’s a Labor MP that says it, the media outrage will be limited:

THE fight against home-grown terrorists can be aided by slashing Australia’s annual migrant intake and a sharp reduction in the issuing of temporary work visas, according to Labor Party federal MP Kelvin Thomson.

Mr Thomson wants the number of migrants granted a visa to be reduced back to the levels of the mid-1990s to allow for more vetting of applicants to make sure that people with links to fundamentalist groups are identified and a thorough investigation of whether they pose a risk is undertaken.

Thomson may be said to be brave, but not brave enough. As even this latest alleged plot demonstrates, you may screen migrants all you like for fundamentalist tendencies, but how can you screen their toddlers or unborn children – the generation that tends to be more radical than the generation you brought in?

So Thomson’s “solution” is in fact too much like a search for a phantom, even presuming you could so thoroughly check the backgrounds of refugees from an area too dangerous and anarchic for any official to go comb through records:

Given time, it would be possible to get to the bottom of the background of applicants from Somalia and elsewhere to work out whether they have an association with fundamentalist groups and make a rational assessment of whether they pose a risk.

  1. The tolerance supply is running dry, keep it up fools. Before too long you will not know what hits you.

  2. “Our work is focused on the causes of radicalisation – what causes these people to become radicalised in the first instance …”
