EVEN a reference from the former prime minister Bob Hawke was not enough to stop a Saudi businessman from being jailed for almost six years for drink spiking and indecent assault.
Safwat Abdel-Hady, 48, will be behind bars until 2014 for administering a stupefying drug to a Melbourne couple he met in the now-closed Barons nightclub in Kings Cross in November 2006. He was also convicted of indecently assaulting the woman, in her 30s, at his luxurious Mosman apartment.

* Do Australians want guys like Conroy, KRudd, Calma or Gillard to control the websites they can access? Are you kidding?

* They are Afghan Muslims. Their Muslim brothers and sisters in Pakistan, Malaysia and Indonesia are religiously obliged to offer them shelter. Why are they coming to Australia, a Judeo-Christian nation?
Could it be that they are not migrants, not asylum seekers, not refugees but infil-traitors instead?
A FISHING boat carrying 54 people, mostly Afghan asylum seekers, was intercepted off the Northern Territory at the weekend. Â The boatload is the largest in more than a year and is the ninth since September.

Australians come from all over the world. Italians, Greeks, Armenians, Germans, Chinese, Jews, Japanese, Spaniards, Indians, Vietnamese, all have made significant, generous contributions to make this country what it is: a modern, multicultural nation-state, a Â benevolent democracy, a prosperous society with aÂ lifestyleÂ second to none. Traditionally, all immigrants have done their best to contribute to society, some have founded universities and hospitals, some have given generously for the arts, some excelled in sports, others have done well in business.
No group of immigrants have ever arrived on these shores who brought with them a criminal intend and anÂ inbredÂ obsession to overthrow the elected government and subject the people of this country to the barbaric regime of a Â terroristic 7th century cult. Â A regime that would see women under black shrouds, Â stoning of adulterous women, public flogging, chopping body-parts of thieves and other criminals, female genital mutilation, child marriage, polygamy, honor killings and open warfare against disbelievers.
And then the Muslims arrived:
