QUOTE OF THE YEAR:
“The most interesting thing in Japan’s approach to Islam…is the fact that the Japanese do not feel the need to apologize to Muslims for the negative way in which they relate to Islam.”

Did you hear the one about the boy who turned a clock into a clock that looks like a timer, declared that Americans are paranoid racists… then got cozy with an indicted war criminal who oversees the rape and racial genocide of black Africans and the ethnic cleansing of Christians?

“Our” ABC heaped scorn on Tony Abbott for “lecturing” Europeans on border control, and brought in the usual goons to give their absurd opinions. The ABC neglected to mention that Abbott was invited to speak – he did not exactly barge into an event, start shouting and have to be restrained. They ended up with the insinuation that he was making a fool of himself, with suitably sad music.

Tim Blair – Wednesday, October 28, 2015
From Tony Abbott’s Margaret Thatcher Lecture:
The imperative to “love your neighbour as you love yourself” is at the heart of every Western polity. It expresses itself in laws protecting workers, in strong social security safety nets, and in the readiness to take in refugees. It’s what makes us decent and humane countries as well as prosperous ones, but – right now – this wholesome instinct is leading much of Europe into catastrophic error.
All countries that say “anyone who gets here can stay here” are now in peril, given the scale of the population movements that are starting to be seen. There are tens – perhaps hundreds – of millions of people, living in poverty and danger, who might readily seek to enter a Western country if the opportunity is there.
Who could blame them? Yet no country or continent can open its borders to all comers without fundamentally weakening itself. This is the risk that the countries of Europe now run through misguided altruism.
Abbott remains a master of the hard truths.
