The Asylum Seeker debate is getting out of hand and Jewish community Leaders, representatives, and Rabbis are all trying to out ‘’compassion” each other.
One of these was AIJAC a wonderful and valuable Israeli Lobby group or at least I thought it was just a Pro Israel Lobby Group . I was very disappointed to read Mark Liebler’s opinion piece in The Age last week criticising Labor’s Asylum seeker policy.
Why is Mr Liebler getting AIJAC involved , what has Australian immigration policy got to do with a Pro- Israel lobby group?
Does Mr Liebler care that many of his organisations supporters do not support his views , why alienate them? What was even more bizarre was Mr Liebler in his article praised Rev Tim Costello. one of Israel’s biggest critic and a Palestinian propagandist Costello and his Arabist NGO organisation.
For the children’s sake, tear down this wall! Tim Costello …
“Why Tim Costello is wrong about Israel’s wall” by Dr Colin Rubenstein. Read HERE:
It is bizarre that critics of the fence virtually ignore the terrorism against Israelis.
So now Mr. Liebler is on the same page on his multiculturalism mishagas and now pals with Costello perhaps we should start embracing other Israel bashers and Palestinian propagandists who also advocate for the predominately Islamic Asylum seekers such as Fraser, Burnside, Loewenstein and the Greens?
I was at Lunch on Friday with a mate that goes to Caulfield Shule he was telling me how his Rabbi was going on about Asylum Seekers , writing op- ed to the media and like Mr. Liebler alienating those constituents who don’t agree with the Rabbis leftist, Multicultural, Interfaith views.
Why doesn’t the Rabbi stick to his day Job, why is he so ignorant to the fact that not everyone agrees with his politics and Saturday Shule is not his place to try to indoctrinate his captive audience? If it were me, I would have walked out.
I’ll bet if the good Rabbi supported labor [ Or Liberal] Asylum seeker policy and went on and on about how good the policy is there would be riots at Caulfield shule. Funny how leftist politics is always the exception to the rule.
However the thing that annoys me most are all these Jews using the plight of Jewish pre and post WW2 asylum seekers/ refugees that came to Australia to convince others to allow more Iranians, Palestinians, Iraqis, Afghanis, Pakistanis, Somalis and Sudanese into Australia.
Firstly the Jewish asylum seekers only wish they had travel documents and passports that they could throw overboard so as to confuse our immigration officials and hide what ever they didn’t want the Immigration to know about their background.
Secondly the Jews would have preferred to travel too much closer destinations to home if any country would have accepted them, rather than just go looking for a country with overly generous welfare and free legal services.
Other big differences between Jewish asylum seekers and the current wave, Jews left behind the war and did not bring with them hatred of Germans Poles or other Nazi allies. [ link below as an example ]
German Australians certainly did not have to hire security at their Churches, Community centers or watch their backs because of extremist Jews that’s for sure. No other Minority ethnic or religious group had anything to fear from the Jewish asylum seekers. The Jewish refugees did not expect our government to change any rules our culture , way of life or exceptions just because of their religion. Today it is not Jewish Youth in Sydney that the Rudd government has just thrown $2.5M at them just to behave and get along with their fellow Australians.
Of course the Jewish refugees similar to the Greeks, Italians, Chinese, Cambodian’s, Vietnamese and others in the 1930,’s, 40’s 50’s’ and 60’s didn’t expect handouts and all added value to our country.
The usual mantra by asylum seekers advocates is these people are fleeing for their lives just like the Jews, someone should tell these bozos that considering ‘Iranians’ are over represented in the flow of Boat people there is no sectarian war, no civil war no deposing of despots there is NO war in Iran !
Jewish contributors to the asylum seeker debate should leave Jewish asylum seekers and refugees out of this debate there is no comparison what so ever and it is an insult to them.
