    Jakarta Ministers Mincing Words on Oz Visas! 

    Coordinating Maritime Affairs Minister Indroyono Soesilo initially refused point-blank to explain the decision to drop Australia from the list of countries whose citizens will be able to enjoy visa-free vacations in Indonesia.

    Japan, Russia and South Korea are on this ‘most-favoured-nation’ category, it seems, but  Australia has evidently irked somebody high up.


    Astonishingly, this same man was rabbiting on about ‘transparency being the key’ just a couple of months ago, speaking about one of the many ‘mafias’ which afflict the Indonesian body politic.

    But, when asked a straightforward  question, on the sudden flip-flop that will discriminate against Australia,  a country which contributes millions of dollars to Bali’s economy every year, all Minister Indroyono felt free to say in reply was  – “For Australians, the visa on arrival is enough!


    • tedjo Tedjo
    • ——————–
    • Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Tedjo Edhy Purdijatno also pointedly refused to say why, when asked by the JP reporter.

    So much for the fresh face of government that President Jokowi promised in last year’s election.

    Of course Jakarta has the right to make any policy decisions it pleases. But this one is either

    A a mean move based on a desire to screw as much money out of Aussie tourists as possible, or  

    B a needless act of escalation perhaps provoked by all those shrills in Canberra who are seeking to interfere in Indonesia’s internal affairs.

    And the JP article indicates the latter is likely. A high-ranking ministry official said that political reasons were behind the decision to exclude Australia from the new visa policy. 

    But then it looks like somebody reminded Indriyono of his once-loud declaration in support of transparency.

    In a text message sent to The Jakarta Post late on Thursday, Indroyono denied any political reason behind the decision to exclude Australia from the visa-free policy. “It’s simply because Australia does not implement a similar policy to almost all countries,” he said.

    Oh yeah?

    So why wouldn’t either minister just say so when the question was put to them. 

    All in all, puzzling.

    And sad, too, that normal Australians are being punished when most of them have no beef with Indonesia’s death penalty.

    It’s the political and media elite in Oz that’s uptight about drug-smugglers getting put down.

    Muslim Women Pestered By Beach-Prowling Primitives! 


    If some eccentric evangelical comes up to you while you’re on vacation in Blackpool, Lancashire (or Fort Lauderdale, Florida) and gives you a sermonising tract, you’ll probably politely accept it, have a glance, then bung it in a bin.


    • 00000000000000000000
    • But if he starts telling your wife or daughter or girl-friend that they’re dressed improperly, or in an unladylike way, you would be quite entitled to tell the sticky-beak to sod off.

    It’s tantamount to harassment!



    Spare a thought then, for nice Turkish Muslims enjoying a break on one of their Black Sea beach resorts.

    On the sandy beaches of Kaynarca, two men wearing thobes and kufis distributed brochures to beach-goers, offering advice about correct Islamic deportment.

    Cheeky sods!

    They’re quite within their rights to tell their own subjugated female family members what to wear, but it’s none of their business what women who think for themselves care to wear anywhere – or how they behave. 


    •  Wicked!

    “The lady should be covered; she should not shake hands with male strangers; she should not go outside without asking permission from her husband; she should not go to weddings where there is music; and she should not sit in public areas.”

    • Splendid code of conduct – for a thousand years ago!

    • ========================================

    And that’s only four invitations to second-class citizenship, out of over SEVENTY listed on their pamphlet!

    In and of itself, no big deal – they have rubbish-bins on Turkish beaches, too, I’m sure.


    But with that Islamist extremist Erdogan in power there, with his bigot battle-cry which we’ve noted before…


    Cameron and Erdogan (1) Clown Cameron and Islamist Erdogan

    • “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.” from WT, March 3rd. 2010


    …there are serious threats to the rights of women, and indeed to all civilised Turks. Turning the clock back is official Erdogan policy, witness his own words on the need to reconstitute the Ottoman Empire which was swept away by Kemal Ataturk after the First World War.

    in a speech in the spring of 2012, Erdogan described Turkey’s mission thus: “On the historic march of our holy nation, the AK Party signals the birth of a global power and the mission for a new world order. This is the centenary of our exit from the Middle East [following the Ottoman defeat in World War I]. Whatever we lost between 1911 and 1923, whatever lands we withdrew from, from 2011 to 2023 we shall once again meet our brothers in those lands.”

    Which takes us onto that other issue, the demand made by Erdogan’s regime for visa-free access into Europe, where already there are a million or more Turks, some of them certainly assimilated, but countless thousands not, and the latter are eager to serve as a fifth column for the country they left up to two generations ago…

    Deutsche Welle: ‘Many Turkish hearts in Germany beat for Erdogan

    …a readiness openly egged on by Erdogan. Just check out our search box for the relentless hostility he’s shown, and the way he’s facilitated the flood of alien migrants into what we used to call Christendom.

    Here’s one example. 

    Germany’s Folly – Deport the Enemy Within! 


    And while we do sympathise with those sun-bathing Muslim ladies, we must also hope that Clown Cameron and the cultural marxist ruling class in Brussels do not get way with their subversive scheme to bring Erdogan’s Turkey into the EUSSR.  


    PS And to anyone who denies these geezers are stuck in a bygone age, watch this- it’s a scream!

    Good Neighbour Turkey? – ONLY After EUSSR Visa Bribe! 

    ‘Turks do not want to live in the EU any more’


    A refreshing news item, perhaps, from EUObserver 23/6, above!

    As we noted in Monday’s post, Germany in particular has borne the brunt of Turkish migration, much of the problem being the failure of successive German governments to ensure that those brought in as guest-workers’ fifty years ago were sent home after their ‘guest-work’ was completed.

    Many Turks did accept German ways and have become all but indistinguishable from real Germans, but all too many have not only refused to adapt but have chosen to look to Ankara  – or, disgracefully, to the sectarian Ummat concept – as their focus of allegiance, and not to Berlin.


    “We Are German!”  Wirklich?!?


    • Such a belated exodus would be a major step in removing the yoke of multicult from Germania’s sore neck.

    However, eine Schwalbe macht noch keinen Sommer, as my high-school German teacher told us when we occasionally answered one of his questions correctly. (One swallow does not make a summer!)

    In fact the source of this news was Turkey’s own European Affairs Minister Egemen Bagis..

    “In the past, when Turks were asked do you want to live in Europe, 80 percent would say Yes. Now, 85 percent say No. Turkish citizens feel there is more hope in Turkey, better job opportunities,” he said.

    Well, okay, he’s bound to sing his regime’s praises.

    He noted that in 2010, 27,000 Turks went to live in Germany, but 35,000 German citizens moved to Turkey.

    But what does that mean? Are lots of young Wilhelms and Ingrids choosing Turkey over their own country? Or is Mr. Bagis referring to ‘Germans’ who are in fact offspring of his own nation’s diaspora? Sounds like the latter, for the report goes on –

     He added that “many” of the 5.5 million Turks who live in the EU are considering going to Turkey to seek a better life for themselves and their children…
    Well, that can’t be bad, if it dilutes the multicult menace facing so many German cities.
    But the essence of the EUObs item is the visa-free deal agreed by the EUSSR this month.
    It means Turks can roam much more freely into Europe, and it says a lot for the sincerity of these new ‘good neighbours’ that the deal was the price Europeans had to pay to win basic border control measures from Ankara. ( EUBusiness 21/6 – Ankara however had refused to sign the readmission deal with the EU failing progress on a visa accord for its citizens).

    In return for the visa deal, Turkey is to implement a “readmission” pact – extra measures for stopping migrants from as far afield as China or Pakistan sneaking into the EU…a 50,000-man-strong civilian border police, “humane” detention centres and “new fences.”

    Turkey currently intercepts 70,000 people a year trying to get into Greece or Bulgaria. The number “could easily double or triple” once the new measures are in place, he said.

    In other words, they’ve been letting maybe one or two hundred thousand illegal aliens swarm into Greece every year?

    And this is the  Erdogan Government, to which Cameron paid such grovelling tributes during his visit last year, when hee hit out at those who ‘wilfully misunderstand Islam’ in order to oppose Turkey’s membership.

    Cameron with Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
    Wilfully misunderstand what? Erdogan’s record?
    …jailed for inciting religious hatred, for publicly reciting a poem that said in part, “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.” 
    from WT, March 3rd. 2010  
    Old Cast-Iron pledged to become the country’s ‘strongest possible advocate’.
    ‘I’m here to make the case for Turkey’s membership of the EU. And fight for it.’

    Back to EUObs =
    A report by British MPs last year said Turkish-based organised crime groups are a growing threat to EU security on heroin and cocaine smuggling and human trafficking. They said lack of intelligence-sharing, such as personal data on suspects, helps the gangs make hay.

    So they have been deliberately failing to prevent hordes of crimmigrants gate-crashing their neighbours’ frontiers, and refusing to share vital info that could quell heinous crimes. Clearly just the sort of country whose adherence to the EUSSR will benefit Europeans of all nationalities.

    Good old Cameroon foreign policy, always principled as well as pragmatic.

    Fascinating Glimpses into the Parasitic ‘Asylum-Seeker’ Mind-Set! 

    Today being the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, all the timelier to suggest patriots should keep an eye out for uninvited invaders.

    King Harold Keeping an Eye Out!

     The more thoughtful of them may benefit from reading an amazing article written by two (presumably left-lib) activists in EUObserver 4/10/11,  Gerald Knaus and Alexandra Stiglmayer.

    It shows just how wily the queue-jumping parasites aka ‘asylum-seekers’ in the West can be.

    The two authors are apparently founders of the European Stability Initiative, a think-tank that has closely followed the visa liberalisation process for the Western Balkans. But regardless of their politics, and I really have no idea of their party affiliations if any, they know a lot of useful facts and present them politely for our inspection.

    Basically, the article concerns the problem of interlopers from the Balkan countries, who, we soon learn, are not Serbs, Bulgars or whatever but Roma, the trouble-makers we’ve seen causing mayhem in France and Italy.

    But it seems that while they are wasters, they are nobody’s fools. As Belgium has been finding.

    During the first half of this year, an average 25 Bosnian citizens requested asylum in Belgium every month. In August, their number increased to 81. The number for September is likely to be even a bit higher. This is still a small share of the more than 2,000 asylum requests Belgium receives every month. However, it led the Belgian embassy in Sarajevo to warn about a “sharp” and “alarming” increase, which is a “worrying and a serious issue…”

    ‘There is now talk among some member states that unless Balkan leaders find ways to “solve” the asylum problem, the EU might reverse its decision to allow Balkan citizens visa-free travel to the Schengen zone.Reversing the most significant decision taken in the past decade to further the Balkans’ European integration would be a disastrous blow to the EU’s credibility in the region.

    So far so good. The more EUSSR integration is reversed, the better, and if the EU still has any credibility, the sooner it is erased, the better too. 

    Between December 2009 and December 2010, the EU lifted the Schengen visa requirement for Albania, Bosnia, Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro. ..Following the removal of the visa barrier, thousands of Serbians and Macedonians (but not Bosnians, Montenegrins or Albanians) travelled to the EU to submit asylum claims. With 17,715 applications, Serbia became the country with the third-largest number of claims in the EU in 2010; Macedonians filed 7,550 claims. EU member states, their asylum systems under strain, had every reason to be concerned…. the asylum seekers are almost exclusively Roma.

    No surprise. And no surprise also that ‘almost none of their applications has been successful.’

    Here’s where the authors give away their bias towards the intruders.

    Although the situation of Roma in the Balkans is a cause for concern due to poverty and discrimination (as it is in EU member states such as Slovakia, Hungary or Romania), this is not a sufficient condition for asylum.

    Too right, mate! There is poverty all over the place, and if successful countries allowed that it were grounds for asylum, we’d all soon be over-run. Do liberals realise that?

    But here’s where it gets really interesting.

    …85 percent of the asylum claims were submitted in just three EU countries, Germany, Sweden and Belgium. They have advanced asylum systems, are relatively wealthy and host sizeable Balkan communities. However, Austria, France and the Netherlands, which have exactly the same characteristics, recorded no significant increase in asylum requests.There is an explanation. The asylum procedure for Balkan nationals in the first three countries lasts two to five months. In Austria, France or the Netherlands, it lasts only up to two weeks.

    In other words, if you get your toe in the door in Berlin, or Stockholm, or Brussels, you’ll be hanging about a heckuva while till they start to prise that toe out again. In Vienna, or Paris or Rotterdam, departure should be swift. But if they know, or suspect, that their chances of permanent residency are remote in all those countries, why bother?


    While they await the decision of the asylum authorities, CLAIMANTS RECEIVE ACCOMMODATION, FOOD, CLOTHES, MEDICAL CARE AND FREE SCHOOLING OF THEIR KIDS. For some Roma, this is an attractive prospect.

    Like I have said before, we’re dealing with natural-born parasites, people who feel not an ounce of shame in sponging off others.

    . Even if their asylum claim is rejected in the end, the costs – a bus ticket to northern Europe is 60-80 Euro – might well be worth it. “It is paid holidays in the EU,” one asylum worker told us.

    So even those working to help these wasters acknowledge the fact of their wastrel character!

    The length of stay can also be extended. An appeals procedure in Germany added as many as six months to the process last year. This is not what the asylum system was created for and it crowds out genuine asylum seekers – but it is not illegal to try.

    Initially, there were even more benefits to applying in Germany and Belgium. Until October 2010, the two countries offered assistance to rejected asylum seekers from the Balkans who returned home voluntarily. IN ADDITION TO HAVING THEIR RETURN TRIP PAID FOR, A FAMILY OF FOUR COULD RECIEVE  in Germany and €1800 IN GERMANY AND €750 IN BELGIUM.

    Good grief! Such specimens should be pariahs, not pampered pets! Common sense should dictate immediate expulsion, preferably with one of those implants we see on sci-fi programmes that send out a beep to security forces within range.

    But the authors would no doubt consider that insidious! Read on!

    More insidiously, however, Serbia and Macedonia have been asked to control people at the border. As almost all the asylum seekers are Roma, it is hard to avoid ethnic profiling and open discrimination.

    Good, and the more of that, the healthier for everyone in the target nations!

    The EU has found a bureaucratic disguise for this, requesting that Serbia and Macedonia help implement the Schengen Convention. Under the Convention, EU border police are obliged to prevent persons lacking “documents justifying the purpose and conditions of the intended stay” or “sufficient means of subsistence” from entering the Schengen zone. However, this is a duty upon entry, not upon exit, and Serbians and Macedonians are not EU border guards…

    Well, they darned well should be! If we are talking about friendly governments, they should be cooperating to prevent parasitic infiltration. Who gives a monkey’s if these undesirables are stopped exiting one side of a border or entering at the other? The point is they don’t deserve access to other people’s taxes.

    They are NOT welcome!

    Curiously, the article comes around to something like sense, but for all the wrong reasons, arguing that waiting time for ‘asylum-seekers’ – who are not fleeing tyrannies but weaseling from one EU member or candidate member to another simply to leech off honest workers – should be reduced and standardised. Surely it should be abolished altogether, if it’s all one big happy Euro-family?

    The Asylum Procedures Directive is currently being amended. It would make sense if the Parliament or the Council put forward an amendment declaring countries that have undergone a visa liberalisation process “safe countries of origin.”…removal of visa barriers improves the EU’s image, fosters economic development and leads to more commerce and people-to-people contacts. It would be a great mistake to replace strict and fair conditionality with a populist appeal to countries to violate the very principles the EU had asked them to respect.

    Here we go again! ‘Populist!’ All that means is that the people have their say, and make politicians listen to them. It’s what should happen all over, in Europe, Canada and Australia, referenda on this asylum racket.  The EU is a menace, forever harassing governments that respond to democratic concerns, always eager to aid and abet the undesirables.

    In Australia, of course, there is no EU busy-body bullying national government, but there is still the absurd kow-towing to UN Conventions, which evidently take precedence over parliament, referenda and the courts, the latter having chosen to  elevate ‘international obligations’ over national loyalty.

    Enough of that nonsense!

    As Gough Whitlam might, or probably might not, have said, ‘Its Time!’ 

    As for Canada….… Wake Up!
