Australia to offer refugee visas to Iraqi Christians and Yazidis

The Federal Government has opened its humanitarian refugee program to Iraqi Christians and Yazidis in response to the crisis in Iraq.

Under Australia's annual program, there are 13,750 places, but more than 4,000 visas are set aside to refugees who are "most in need of resettlement" due to desperate circumstances.

Immigration Minister Scott Morrison says the Federal Government is "deeply concerned" by the ongoing crisis in Iraq and has now listed Iraqi Christians and Yazidis as eligible for Special Humanitarian Visas.

A spokeswoman says more than 1,000 places were provided last year to to people and families affected by the Syrian conflict.

Treasurer Joe Hockey says there is a humanitarian crisis and Australia needs to do its part.
What do you think of the Federal Government's decision to offer humanitarian visas to Iraqi Christians and Yazidis?

"If we do not act now then it will be genocide on the scale that we haven't seen in the world for a long period of time. It is always the case that evil has its way when good people do nothing," he told ABC NewsRadio. "We have to stop the systemic slaughter of people wherever it might be in the world."

Labor's Immigration spokesman Richard Marles has welcomed the inclusion of Syrian and Iraqi refugees fleeing Islamic State militants.

However, Mr Marles says the 13,750 places in Australia's annual humanitarian intake is too low and it should be returned to Labor's target of 20,000.

Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young wants an additional 5,000 humanitarian places for Iraq introduced immediately.  "We need to be doing everything we can to help in the humanitarian effort. Those who are facing desperate and urgent persecution in Iraq and of course Syria," she said.  "This is doable. It is right thing to do and it makes sense."

Meanwhile Prime Minister Tony Abbott has confirmed Australian forces have made their first air drop to Iraq's troubled Mount Sinjar region.

A statement from Mr Abbott's office says he visited the Australian base in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday night to witness personnel preparing for the mission.

An RAAF C-130J Hercules delivered 10 pallets of high energy biscuits and bottled water - enough for 3,700 people for 24 hours, according to the Prime Minister.

"Initial reports are that the drop was conducted successfully and the aircraft is returning to base," Mr Abbott said in the statement.

"The aid drops will continue until the security of the Yazidi civilians is assured and they can safely move from Mount Sinjar."


Suspected jihadists have welfare payments cut to stop Australia taxes financing terror

WELFARE payments to more than a dozen suspected jihadists have been axed to stop Australian taxpayers’ money being used to finance terrorist outrages in Iraq and Syria.

But the Federal Government refuses to say whether an audit has guaranteed the cancellation of all welfare to Australians suspected of joining the Islamic State.

Wanted terrorist Khaled Sharrouf, who was photographed executing Iraqi soldiers and whose young son was photographed holding a soldier’s severed head, received a $383-a-week disability support pension for several months. It lapsed after he left Australia on his brother’s passport.

An estimated 150 Australians have travelled to Iraqi and Syrian war zones.

“The Abbott Government has already cancelled welfare payments for a number of individuals who are overseas,” a spokesman for Social Services Minister Kevin Andrews told the Herald Sun.

“The Abbott Government is committed to ensuring Australians engaged in terrorist activities are not receiving taxpayer-funded payments.”

Yesterday Australia assigned two Hercules C-130 aircraft to drop food to 30,000 Yazidi Iraqis facing the threat of genocide in the Sinjar mountains.  And Prime Minister Tony Abbott would not rule out further military action in Iraq by Australian forces. “Australia should do what it can to protect people from potential genocide,” Mr Abbott said.

The “darkening” terrorist and humanitarian situation in Iraq and its ramifications for Australia was the Government’s highest priority, he said.  “We all know that the murderous hordes of ISIL — now the Islamic State — are on the march in northern Iraq,” he said.  “What happens in Syria and Iraq doesn’t happen in isolation. What happens in these countries does have ramifications in Australia.”

Mr Abbott’s office had previously vowed to investigate options to cease the international portability of welfare payments for people suspected by security agencies of joining militant or terrorist ranks.

An estimated 150 Australians have travelled to the Iraqi and Syrian war zones, about 60 of whom are thought to be on the front line.

It is understood a significant number were receiving unemployment, disability or family payments while at the same time being members of the Islamic State or the al-Qaida-linked al-Nusra Front.

The Government is now considering further measures to stop welfare payments to militants engaged in foreign conflicts, including Iraq and Syria.

That may include red-flagging payments as part of a Customs revamp requiring people travelling to conflict zones to justify their journey.

Security analysts say it is not uncommon for Islamic fundamentalists in Australia, who often have large families, to not hold down full-time jobs and to be receiving a range of welfare benefits.

“We often drop the ball, where government departments don’t speak to each other,” the Monash University Global Terrorism Research Centre’s Greg Barton said.

Prof Barton said there was no formal research on how widespread social welfare payments to extremists were.

But extremists receiving them typically considered them as a way to take advantage of governments and which allows them to commit to their fundamentalist cause.

“We don’t know the scale of the problem, but these are the sort of things we should be following up on,” he said.

As part of Australia’s de-radicalisation program, Prof Barton said understanding extremists’ reliance on welfare was part of early intervention.

Mr Abbott said the horrifying picture of a seven-year-old boy, understood to be Sharrouf’s son, holding a severed head, was an abomination.

“One of the images that has seared itself into the consciousness, not just of Australians but of people everywhere, is the photograph that was published on the internet and subsequently in newspapers around the world of a seven-year-old Australian, born and bred, in Syria, waving around a severed head as if it were a show bag at the Easter Show,” Mr Abbott said.

“This is absolutely hideous. It is absolutely gruesome and it indicates the mentality of the people who are fighting with Islamic State and the other terrorist groups in the Middle East.

“It is absolutely essential that we do whatever we reasonably can to ensure that the Australian community is safe from people who have been radicalised, militarised, brutalised by the experience of engaging in terrorist activity in the Middle East.”


Greenies criticize new coal railway in Qld.

THE state's coordinator-general has approved Indian firm Adani's 300km rail line, linking the Galilee Basin with the Abbot Point coal terminal on the Great Barrier Reef.

But Australia Institute analyst Mark Ogge says the massive project will drive down global coal prices and could potentially cause the closure of Surat and Bowen Basin coal mines.

"This has all the signs of an economic train wreck for the state," Mr Ogge warned.  "If you are a farmer, tourist operator, manufacturer or coal miner other than in the Galilee basin, today's approval is almost certainly bad news for you."

Greenpeace's Ben Pearson was disappointed that the railway, planned to transport more than 100 million tonnes of coal per year, had been given the state's nod.  "It's very bad news for landowners along the route and it is very bad news for Australians who care about the climate and care about our Great Barrier Reef," he told AAP.  "We certainly haven't given up on stopping federal approval of the rail line."

But Queensland Resources Council chief executive Michael Roche congratulated Adani and described the rail and mine project as a pioneer plan.

Premier Campbell Newman said the project would be giving back to the state for at least 50-60 years.

But he's asked the coordinator-general to be mindful of impacts on landholders because local member and government MP Vaughan Johnson has concerns about the route.  "Vaughan is quite rightly being the voice of his constituents," the premier said.

"I have asked him (the coordinator-general) to be very mindful on the ground. We'll do our best to mitigate those impacts."

Federal government approval, required for the project to go ahead, is due by September 30.



In a briliant flash of Leftist logic, Labor MP Richard Marles says that that terrorism isn’t a Muslim issue because the Oklahoma bomber was a Christian  (He wasn't).

I tried to find some acts of terrorism committed by those of us of Anglo-Saxon heritage.

I realise you said we were also guilty of these atrocities, so I searched and searched but I could only find ones committed in an Islamic context. I'm terrible at researching.

So perhaps you could help me out here with some Anglo-Saxon events because it would be good if I had a complete list and not just Islamic ones... it really does make last month's list look a bit unbalanced.
