Australia doesn’t Â have an ‘asylum time bomb’, Australia has an Islamic time bomb.
Stop, for god’s sake stop, importing troubleâ€”and Muslim immigrants,Â as a whole, necessarily mean trouble,Â in all lands where the political and legal institutions, and social arrangements, are flatly contradicted by the Shari’a.Â Muslims are obligated to change or tear down those institutions, in order to remove all “obstacles to Islam.” It is not special or individual malice that prompts that attitude.Â That is their duty, a central duty.Â Why not come to fully and soberly understand that duty, and out of a minimal sense of self-preservation, cease to import those into our lands (America, Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Australia, and every other place that has so generously admitted, under a twisted definitiion of “refugees,” people who do not, and can not, wish our ways or institutions or constitutions well.

EXCLUSIVE: ASYLUM seekers languishing in suburbia are a ticking time bomb, doctors and police warn in a letter to Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
They say they can’t deal with problems caused by a lack of welfare and mental health support.
The letter, sent by South Eastern Melbourne Medicare Local and seen by theÂ Herald Sun, says gang violence, street brawls and drug and alcohol problems are taking hold in Melbourne’s southeast and Ms Gillard must urgently direct health resources to the area.
One mentally troubled man even set himself on fire.
Confronted by up to 200 arrivals a month, South Eastern Melbourne Medicare Local says it can’t meet the health needs of marginalised young men who, banned from working, are becoming more and more isolated.
SEMML chairman Dr Nicholas Demediuk said many had experienced trauma and had worsening health and little support.
“We request the opportunity to provide further details on this community priority area and discuss strategies that we believe will address this simmering time bomb in our community,” his May 31 letter said.
“It has been widely reported to local services that people from Afghan backgrounds are experiencing racial stigma in Melbourne’s southeast, and there are specific neighbourhoods where tension has escalated to violence.
”This situation can contribute to risk issues by compounding mental health issues.”
“At board level a major current concern relates to increasing violence and crime in our catchment, including gang-related brawls and increasing drug and alcohol issues.”
The area now houses 2496 Afghans aged 10 to 24.
The Gillard Government remains under intense pressure to solve the boats crisis, with 716 boats arriving under Labor – and 15 vessels carrying 1184 people arriving this month alone.
The City of Casey and City of Dandenong have seen the greatest influx under recent humanitarian settlements.
The medical network warns it needs greater resources to cope with the young people arriving on bridging visas.
In comments quoted in the letter, Senior Constable James Waterson of the police Southern Metropolitan Multicultural Liaison Unit said young Afghan men were turning to crime including property damage, sexual assaults, and violence.
Sen-Constable Waterson said police were being called to incidents where men awaiting residency were threatening self-harm, including a case where a man set himself alight.
“The common theme across these incidents is that the offender/person involved has recently arrived in Australia, is suffering severe depression and anxiety and has turned either a criminal offender or to self-harm,” Sen-Constable Waterson wrote.
“Further discussions with these males has revealed many of the causal factors are around lack of employment options, which has an effect on their ability to repay loans and/or send money back to Afghanistan for help.
“This, coupled with the prospect of not being granted residency in Australia, is influencing these people to either commit crimes for financial gain or as an outlet.”
Asylum seekers in the community are provided with six weeks’ accommodation support, but are not allowed to work and must survive on 89 per cent of the Newstart allowance.
Opposition immigration spokesman Scott Morrison said Labor’s failure to stop the boats was creating a mounting human cost, as well as a budget blowout.
“Labor’s no care, no responsibility bridging visa policy is dumping the consequences of their border failure out into communities with no regard for the impacts such as on health, state budgets or the resources of charities and other non-government organisations,” he said.
Paul Perry, spokesman for Health Minister Tanya Plibersek, said the Federal Government provided a range of health services to refugees.
The State Government will lobby at Friday’s meeting of health ministers for Canberra to increase health funding for released asylum seekers and refugees.
