Follower of radical Islamic movement granted asylum in Australia

Suicidal lunacy Downunder:

A FOLLOWER of a radical Islamic movement that seeks to introduce sharia law and has been linked to terrorist groups is being granted asylum in Australia.

The Refugee Review Tribunal has recommended a protection visa for an Egyptian man, who is a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic political group with links to al-Qaida.

The Muslim Brotherhood has been outlawed in several countries, including Egypt.

It seeks to establish a pan-Islamic state ruled by sharia law and is committed to the destruction of Israel.

The Egyptian man initially was denied a protection visa by the Department of Immigration, but the decision was overturned by the tribunal.

“The tribunal is of the view that the applicant’s decision to abandon ship, insistence on his rights not to return to Egypt for medical treatment, and behaviour towards his captain, if combined with his support for the Muslim Brotherhood, his low-level political activities and past expression of anti-government political views, would generate a profile that could attract the adverse attention of the authorities and focus their attention on his sympathies for the brotherhood,” it found.

“On this basis, the tribunal is of the opinion that there is a real chance that this could place the applicant at risk of facing arrest, detention and ill-treatment.”

Prof Greg Barton of Monash University said the Muslim Brotherhood had been linked to terrorist attacks, such as the Luxor bus bombing in 1997, but had since denounced violence, though many of its goals had been taken up by terrorist groups.

“Al-Qaida and other militant groups have benefited greatly from their ideas so it is true that the ideas produced by the brotherhood are taken further by more militant groups,” he said.

“The brotherhood connection for anybody would automatically give Australian authorities a reason to check into their background.”

Jeremy Jones, director of international affairs with the Australia-Israel Jewish Affairs Council, said the brotherhood presented a threat to democratic countries.

“The Muslim Brotherhood has been banned in many countries for good reason,” he said. “It’s not just it’s attitude towards Israel that’s of concern. It has strands that are very sympathetic towards terrorism.”

Opposition immigration spokeswoman Sharman Stone said she would write to Mr Evans asking to have the decision overturned.

Immigration Minister Chris Evans said the man would have a rigorous security check before a visa was granted.

“Should there be an adverse security assessment, the department cannot grant a visa,” he said.

  1. So let me get this straight. He belongs to a proscribed organisation in his home country. If he is returned home, he will be subject to penalties because of his association with said proscribed organisation, therefore we will grant him a visa so he doesn’t have to face the law in his own country.


    [The Migration Review Tribunal (the MRT) and the Refugee Review Tribunal (the RRT) (the Tribunals) review visa and visa-related decisions made within the Immigration and Citizenship portfolio.

  3. Its not Islam that is killing the West it is PC MC Islamophile ‘libtard’ moonbats who are ALLOWING Islam to kill the West and THEY are the real problem.

  4. Readers, please write to government asking for this decision to be overturned. I will try and found out the names of those actually involved and see if they can be published. I agree 100% with “Realist” – the real danger are the idiots who are trying to imposed their flawed visions of a perfect world onto the rest of us.
    If the names can be published then these people can be dismissed from their positions. Thanks for info Mullah.

  5. ‘A FOLLOWER of a radical Islamic movement that seeks to introduce sharia law and has been linked to terrorist groups is being granted asylum in Australia. ‘

    I’m afraid of takeovers , revolutions , but it might be the only answer .
    We’re being betrayed , pure and simple .

  6. Naturally, when the “follower of radical Islamic movement” starts recruiting “disaffected” “marginalised” Somalis and others for jihad
    (regardless of whether the Five Schools of Guppies authorised it),
    we can have another trial, and another lawyer claiming that the AFP sexed up the evidence & the whole Dog Day Afternoon sideshow repeats, until we get a government that stops fawning and pandering to muslims.
