Will the Left now demonise Kevin Rudd as it did John Howard?
THE KRudd Government has beenÂ forced to open the $400 million detention centre on Christmas IslandÂ in an embarrassing admission it is struggling to cope with an influx of boat people…
The Age understands the Government was extremely reluctant to open the centre, because it sends a message it is losing the battle against people smugglers and validates the Howard Government’s decision to build it.
Right both times.
And note the triumph of spin over decent treatment of the new boat people:
There are already 135 Afghan, Iranian and Sri Lankan asylum seekers on the island, but they live in a construction camp, the old detention centre at Phosphate Hill, or in the community.
Stick ‘em anywhere – even in an old camp or ageing facility – rather than be embarrassed by putting them up in a modern centre that John Howard built.
Why should any Muslim from a Muslim-dominated country be considered for asylum status? Only those who are not Muslims should be allowed to seek “asylum” from a Muslim-dominated country, and then only after extensive checking for fraud, or to see if such people — such as “Palestinian” Arab islamochrisetians — in fact will further the Islamic agenda in Western Europe, and pose a special danger — on campuses, on the streets — to Christians who are not yet post-Christian, or to the Jews who despite everything have remained in Europe, and who long ago fully integrated into, and have been contributing to the cultural advancement of the societies of Western Europe, and surely do not deserve to have their situations and security, physical and societal, put at special, heightened risk by the influx of such clearly unintegrable and hostile Muslim “asylum-seekers.”Â

Here is another fact you should check on. Is there a historical precedent, either contemporary or historical, to support the idea that Islam can peacefully integrate into any non-Islamic society? Does contemporary Islamic Orthodoxy support the idea of equality between Muslims, and non-Muslims in Islamic societies? What do these questions mean for the future of any country that faces a future where its Islamic population is doubling every 10 years, while its native population is decreasing by 3% in the same time frame? What sort of future do you envision?
