Shut up and roll out the red carpet, kafirs:
United Nations high commissioner for human rights Navi Pillay has slammed the Australian government’s asylum seeker deal with Malaysia as illegal.
Navi Pillay, who is to meet with Prime Minister Julia Gillard in Canberra on Tuesday, has told a forum in Sydney that asylum seekers are not adequately protected in Malaysia.
‘If Australia is serious … about sending 800 people out to Malaysia then I think it violates refugee law,’ she said.
‘It cannot send individuals to a country that has not ratified the torture convention, the convention on refugees.’
Ms Gillard wants to send 800 asylum seekers who try to come to Australia by boat to Malaysia for processing.
In exchange, Australia will resettle 4000 genuine refugees currently residing in Malaysia.
Ms Pillay said Australia’s asylum seeker processing policy should be legal and made more efficient.
‘The first option should not be how best to turn away people, the first option should be how to receive people.’
- One would like to see Navi Pillay direct her attention to where its needed, like here in Egypt: Ethiopians and Eritreans who try to sneak into Israel, tortured and electrocuted to death by Arabs
“Australian Values” not on the Islamic agenda:
The Executive Council Of Australian Jewry has Â made a submission to the federal multiculturalism inquiry wanting a strengthened test of so-called ‘Australian values’ for all immigrants.
“That’s something that has to be earned. Australian citizenship is an honour and a responsibility – it’s not something to be given away lightly,” Executive Director Peter Wertheim says. Â (Good luck with that!)
“Regardless of their religious or cultural background, if they’re involved in promoting violent or racist or totalitarian ideology they’re not fit subjects for citizenship”
This doesn’t seem like a good deal: It could be 4000 of theirs for none of ours
Immigration Minister Chris Bowen continued to stonewall over whether Malaysia was reserving the right to veto asylum-seekers Canberra proposed to send to Kuala Lumpur.
