Refugee Candlelight Vigil in Garema Place this Saturday 7:30PM

By howeph 21 February 2014 251

candlelight vigil cups

The Refugee Action Committee is organising a candlelight vigil this Saturday to mourn the death of an Iranian asylum seeker during recent protests at the Australian detention centre on Manus Island.

Reports are conflicted at this time as to how one person was killed and 77 others injured but sources suggest police and armed thugs went into the camp early Tuesday morning after days of escalating protests by asylum seekers over their continued detention and the appalling conditions at the camp.

Come along to show your support for those suffering under Operation Sovereign Borders.

If you read the previous post you would see that I was responding to the question about my paranoia levels which are highly elevated following this (yet to be explained) incident..

Its probably best for all concerned if you retire to your bunker until these terrifying times have passed. Two or three decades should just about do it.

Please, please tell us that there is no internet access in that bunker.

It’s funny how these lefties are all, “oh diversity! I love it!” right up until somebody starts to present diverse opinions that don’t agree with their ideology, at which point it’s goodbye Diversity, hello gulag.

Oh now I’m all confused. I’ve never been called a leftie before and really don’t know what to do.

Do I have to hand back my firearms and hunting licences? Should I get rid of my 4WD?

What do I do this Christmas Dinner? Do I have to sit there and agree with all the ‘human rights for criminals’ crap my lawyer brother-in-law goes on about? And do I now have agree with my aunt that being lazy is an actual disability and her loser son deserves more welfare?

My life has been turned upside down apparently just because I’m not terrified and paranoid.

Of course not. There were just “6 Australains murdered on this flight”.

But never mind that because it gave you a chance to leap to the defence of Islam, the “relgion” of peace.

Yeap, which is why I spoon-fed you details of draft Iraqi Shi’te marriage laws that I imagine most Australians, progressive and conservative, would find unacceptable.

I live my life paranoia free. I’m happy and things are great. Maybe you should try it…or at least grow a brain.

That’s not a brain you’re sporting, it’s a pair of rose-tinted glasses.

If there’s one thing we can be 100% absolutely sure of, it’s that you me and 1 billion muslims aren’t going to be all joining hands and skipping off through the rainbow together to forge a new era of peace and cooperation and goodwill between all men. Never happen.
The future holds famines, wars, and population movements. And societies, cultures and civilisations being snuffed out. Same as it ever was.

Following revelations about the two people with stolen passports sitting together on the ill-fated Malaysian Ailines flight and the absence of security screening for explosives, I am feeling a little more paranoid.
There were 6 Australains murdered on this flight.
Are you starting to see the light now?

It has been reported that the two tickets for the two men with stolen passports were purchased by an Iranian man. It is also stated that they had tickets to fly on to Europe which means they didn’t need to get a Chinese visa in which case the Chinese may have detected their false passports.

Fortunately for us we’ve got Dung to leap to conclusions when authorities tediously insist on reserving judgement.

From Reuters:
“Investigators in Malaysia are also voicing scepticism that the airliner that disappeared early Saturday with 239 people on board was the target of an attack, US and European government sources close to the probe said.
Neither Malaysia’s Special Branch, the agency leading the investigation locally, nor spy agencies in the United States and Europe have ruled out the possibility that militants may have been involved in downing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.
But Malaysian authorities have indicated that the evidence so far does not strongly back an attack as a cause for the aircraft’s disappearance, and that mechanical or pilot problems could have led to the apparent crash, the US sources said. There is no evidence to suggest an act of terror,” said a European security source, who added that there was also “no explanation what’s happened to it or where it is%u2026.Even so, one US source said Malaysian authorities were leaning away from the theory that the plane was attacked.”

If you’re struggling for ammo, you could’ve gone with the draft Shi’ite Islamic marriage laws in Iraq and underlined the ugly side of sharia law, but that would’ve involved substantiated facts.

I promised Mrs RAAF I’d stay away from here but if I may just poke my nose in for a sec…

It’s all very quaint and nice for people to stick up for Islam/Muslims and try to convince us that there isn’t anything to fear but you’re kidding yourselves. I know some of the followers of Islam are nice people who really don’t care for world domination but sadly, many of them do. That’s a fact and there’s no use disputing it.

As far as which religion is more to blame, sure Christianity has to take its share but its reign of terror was centuries ago, move on, nothing to see here.

With the blame for the loss of the Malaysian airlines almost certainly going to fall onto Al Qaeda and Iran, get ready for that country to be removed from existence and then, with luck, will begin the ‘Great war on Islam’ where the world will finally get the chance to exterminate it once and for all. The seeds are already popping up in Europe; we just need one little push and were away!!

Can you please post evidence of the entirety of Muslims trying to murder you?

I know how to reassure him: just point him to the country, overwhelmed by muslim immigration, where no mass-muders of non-muslims ensued, no forcible conversions, and no persecution of the non-muslim minority.

Also, share with him the long list of countries where there is a sizeable muslim minority population and where everybody lives in peace and there are never any muslim atrocities against their non-muslim neighbours.

You can use these two demonstrations to show him how Islam is the “Religion of Peace”.

Additionally, you can point him to the global muslim reaction to a few satirical cartoons as a demonstration of how we have nothing to fear from muslims because they respect free speech and shy away from violence at all times.

We can laugh at our extremist Christians in Australian suburbia, but Christians are the most persecuted religion in the world. No prizes for guessing which religion is persecuting them.

If true, is this a case for an end to unreasonable persecuting Christians, or an end to unreasonable religions persecution, period?

Anyone who steps on an airliner these days could be murdered by Islamic terrorists. Remember the shoe bomber, the underpants bomber and the plot that was foiled at the 11th hour to blow up 12 airliners over the Atlantic? How many terrorists are “sleepers” with stolen ground to air missiles all over the Western world? Anyone who is a Westener is a chance to be murdered by an Islamic terrorist.

LOL

Did anybody say they are zero?

does the fact they have no yet been entirely eliminated render their persecution OK, does it?

What is it with lefties? What is wronf with their brains?

Here is Wikipedia’s ironic comment on the issue:
“There is no explanation for a 55% decline in the percentage of Christians in Egypt.(over the 20th Century)”

Umm what? Are you seriously suggesting Palestine and Egypt were Christian countries? .

Egypt was a Christian country. In fact it was one of the 5 pillars of the Orthodox church. Now look at how christians are treated there.

Palestine was much more pluralistic, before muslims invaded and proceeded to cleanse the place.

Having secured those countries under the yoke of their arabic religion, they are moving on – here’s what they were up to 2 years ago at the frontline of Islamic invasion in Mali:
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/31/world/africa/couple-stoned-to-death-by-islamists-in-mali.html?_r=0

And last week in Nigeria:
http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2014/03/07/nigeria-shuts-schools-stem-attacks
“Last week, 43 students were shot and hacked to death when suspected Boko Haram gunmen stormed Federal Government College in Buni Yadi, Yobe state.

An undisclosed number of female students was abducted during the overnight attack, while the whole school was burnt down.

Yobe state authorities said last October that Boko Haram attacks had razed 209 schools, causing damage worth an estimated $US15.6 million ($A17.41 million).”

What religion do you think the majority of Egyptians were before it became Islamic?

Nice cherry picking. What about Palestine? Do you also see the millions of Christians in Egypt as “zero”? You guys ned to stop contradicting each other too. Surely when you operate on no facts at all you can at least all stick to the same fairy tale.

Yes.

Going back some years, there were precisely zero muslims in either Palestine or Egypt.
Now, the proportion of those countries that are *not* muslim is trending towards zero.
This trend is not happening independently of Islam’s attitudes towards non-muslims.

I disagree. To me multiculturalism in Australia has been progressive and a shining success story demonstrating how multiculturalism enriches our own culture.
.

Well you are in denial.

In the real world, multiculturalism has been debunked and the only two major countries in the world to have embraced it (UK & Germany) have both annuonced it a failure.

In Germany, they would consider our half-hearted opposition to fake-asylum-seekers quite tame.

Here is how germans are reacting right now:
http://www.zeit.de/gesellschaft/2014-03/rechtsextremismus-asylbewerber-angriffe

That’s 21 attacks by the public on hostels/detention centres in just the last 9 weeks, just like how the inhabitants of Manus reacted recently. Australians have proven remarkably tolerant. The best way to keep it that way is to stop rewarding fake refugees with visas they do not deserve.

The same feelings against the Roma are reported on in Italy. This link to the Guardian dilutes the extent of the violence somewhat: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2008/may/17/italy
I empathise with the Roma who are expelled from one EU country to another. They are not sucking on the welfare teat as much as the migrants with huge families from North Africa.

So locals are attacking detention centres and you’re saying the solution is to not take in asylum seekers? Wouldn’t it make more sense to lock up the people who are attacking detention centres?

No. The answer is to stop and take stock of what is going on.

Civil disorder is rarely solved by any kind of law and order initiative based on methods available to a democracy.

Here’s what happened in Belfast when the locals realised they were being invaded by welfare-scrounging foreigners:
