We need the refugees

Why in these enlightened times are people so wound up about people arriving in the country they live, be it Great Britain, Australia or the USA or any other country, all people need somewhere to live. The people in Australia should understand this more than any other country as all of us including  Aboriginals are descended from immigrants/refugees/convicts. There is no logical argument about the worth of immigrants to this country. I have listed just a couple of boat people below can anyone in their family say they have achieved anywhere near any of them.

Frank Lowy

Australia’s richest man, founder and largest shareholder of the world’s biggest shopping centre owner, Westfield

 

Tan Le

1998 Young Australian of the Year and voted one of Australia’s 30 most successful Women Under 30. She was 20 years old. A very successful entrepreneur with Bachelor’s degrees in Commerce and Law and is now Business Development Director of SASme Wireless Communication. She arrived from Vietnam as a refugee in 1982.

Huy Truong

One of Australia’s leading entrepreneurs, founder and director of more than one multi-million dollar business.After arriving from Vietnam aged seven with just the clothes on his back, he has built dot-com company Wishlist, turned around and sold a large company, managed fast growing company Julique, and launched a fund to invest in small and medium businesses.

In other lands Abraham, Jesus, Mohammed, Confucius & Zoroaster were also refugees.

Persecution in any form is wrong, yet we continually see it in the societies we live. Refugees, ethical minorities, in schools it might be having red hair for being picked on the same bullies take it into the adult world and carry on picking on the weakest in society. Remember, “It is the week who inherits the world”, NOT, the bullies.

Britain in the 1930’s allowed in boat loads of Jews, they provided the country with immense wealth financially, the arts, academics, the film industry, every corner of the British Empire prospered. Due, to the far sightedness of the British. Australia you are a Colony of Great Britain learn from your mother country as you learnt life from your mother, don’t kill of such a lovely country as Australia.

In the 1960’s Britain not only allowed the boat people in, they went looking for people to bring to British shores, they procured west Indians to do the jobs that the British worker would not do, further advancing Britain on the world stage, what does Australia do, it forces those who do come here back from whence they came, shame on us Australians.

Remember “Populate or perish” is as important now as it ever was.

Do not forget Gillard is also a boat person, a ten pounder off a boat.

Yet she can do this to these innocents, David Lloyd George would hang his head in shame.

They ‘say’ they’ve killed Osama Bin Laden

So, American forces are also saying that they have killed Osama bin Laden.  Do they really think this will make any difference to the world.  Terrorism is in the minds of a great many people, not really much to do about one individual.  How many more Osamas has America created?  If it was indeed Osama that planned the 9/11 attacks, do they really think there is not another Osama standing in line to take his place in martyrdom. Of course there is.

American foreign policy has ensured that terrorism will continue to flourish long after the defeat of this one man.  Of course terrorism is an anathema to most of us, however if one country imposes its will against another by force then it is a fact that they will react.  It all becomes a killing game of tit for tat.  Ordinary people do not want all this killing just for power for some and oil.  Countries with oil would be a lot safer if they just gave the oil to the USA.

Do they expect us to believe that there is a noble reason for targeting these small military-weak countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, Pakistan, Libya, or Egypt? Their undercover forces bringing about revolutions in these countries, destabilising and causing huge suffering in order to give the USA superior power in these areas.  Draining these countries of their recourse’s.  Leaving them in a tragic and weak state.  Then they can use them for power bases like Guantanamo.  Or even Greenham common in the UK.

We do know what our governments are doing but just a vote does not change anything.  At this very moment western forces are trying to destabilise so many countries including Indonesia and China. What will be the outcome when these countries have been hurt enough and fight back?

Personally, I think it will make 9/11 seem like a walk in the park.
