Australian Political Challenger Says Country Mistaken to Receive Lebanese Immigrants


Peter Dutton, the government lawmaker who has challenged Australia's prime minister for his job, is publicly perceived as a hard man and a leading hard-right conservative. His face is associated with turning back asylum seekers boats, stripping citizenship from extremists and striving to increase the English-language standards for migrants who want to gain citizenship.

Dutton gave up the largest security portfolio in the government when he resigned as Minister for Home Affairs, who controls the newly created Department of Homeland Security designed to tackle the new security threats of a changing geo-political environment.

While highly regarded by the conservative Liberal Party's hard-right faction, his broader appeal has been questioned, particularly among ethnic minorities.

He has been criticized for saying the level of Lebanese Muslim immigration under a humanitarian program in the 1970s had been a mistake that Australia was now paying for through a rise in domestic extremism.

He also attracted accusations of racism through comments that white farmers under threat of violence in black-majority South Africa should be treated as refugees because "they need help from a civilized country." He has angered many in the ethnic-African community by saying people in Victoria state were "scared to go out to restaurants of a night time" because of "African gang violence."

Dutton, 47, is a former police drug squad detective from the politically and socially conservative state of Queensland.

He was first elected to Parliament in 2001 and quickly rose to the rank of minister three years later.

He became Minister for immigration and Border Protection in 2014, when he became responsible for Australia's contentious policy of sending asylum seekers who attempt to reach Australia by boat to immigration camps paid for by his government on impoverished Pacific island nations for Papua New Guinea and Nauru. The Australian navy also turns asylum seekers boats back to Indonesia, which Jakarta regards as an affront to Indonesian sovereignty.

one of these Australian thugs called for a "final solution" last week against immigrants and refused to apologize. Australia is going nazi style!

these people forget they're all immigrants... at the expense of the Aboriginal Australians .

The 'australian' from dahieh (who does not speak arabic) does not mind if some of his hezbollah terror militia immigrated to Australia because they "assimilate".

As a Christian, Its a debt we owe to HA & a friendship & trust to hopefully last forever.

"Muslims immigrating & not adhering to other nations laws is something else..."

and in your imagined world of Australia, is there a law that specifies what people should dress, or an Australian dress code?

Your under powered brain cannot distinguish between tradition/custom and law.

I also take it if Christians immigrating & not adhering to other nations laws is something fine by you.....

What the_roar is saying: he owes hezbollah; he is friends with hezbollah and wilayat al faqih; he trusts hezbollah and its way of life along with its customs but he prefers to maintain a long distance relationship.

Thumb the_roar 22 August 2018, 15:16

Incorrect once again, may I suggest you stop guessing & posting for the sake of it.

in no way do i owe HA or any muslim a thing. I do not subscribe to Ha's way of life.

But reality is this! If it were not for HA, Lebanon would be in the hands of Isis & co.

No thanks, I prefer the Muslim who is defending his land & his brothers including the Christians of Lebanon.

Until HA tries to convert Christians by force or behead Christians & eat their hearts then HA is fine by me defending Lebanon from those who do.

There are two versions of inferior human beings on this forum: One calls itself @blablablabla, a fake Christian claiming to live in Paris and another calling itself the_boar, a fake Christian claiming to live in Australia. What do they have in common? Both are shia followers of the ayatollah and the mullahs in Iran.

Hezbollah is Iran's agent planning takeover of Lebanon, and succeeding step by step. Lebanon's long term outlook is not good.

The truth is... for Lebanon to survive it must align with Israel:

"Basically treat a Muslim from KSA the way the Saudi's treat Christians, Jews and Shia in KSA, same goes for Iran and other majority Muslim countries and lets see what happens."

So, a Muslim from Dubai or Bahrain should be allowed to wear his traditional Arab Thobe in the West because in his country Christians are allowed to wear bikinis and Western clothes?

100% Canadianleb, If accept moving to a nation then you need to accept its rules. That said though you would be pushed to see an Arab accept rules....

Thumb whyaskwhy 22 August 2018, 17:05

I don't beleive the news above is about peoples religious dependencies but rather about respecting the law in the nation you chose to visit or immigrate to.
The Lebanese have been without the law for so long that they possibly fail to understand is that the law is there to protect the welfare of the nation itself rather than the individual. In Lebanon the individual looks about his welfare first and the law is something you get around.
Australia like many other nations has not only felt the pinch of the immigrants from a financial perspective but also their impact from a civil liberties side too. They majority will simply be asking for the protection of the welfare of their nation.

Thumb _citizen_ 22 August 2018, 17:13

"I don't beleive the news above is about peoples religious dependencies"

Read what he said :

"He has been criticized for saying the level of Lebanese MUSLIM immigration under a humanitarian program in the 1970s had been a mistake that Australia was now paying for through a rise in domestic extremism."

Thumb whyaskwhy 22 August 2018, 18:44

Thanks Citizen,
Mr. Dutton is an Australian citizen and I am not. He is entitled to have his opinion about his countries policies as much as you and I have about Lebanon's policies. He was wants immigrants to respect the law (even though as you correctly pointed out he maybe biased) as much as I want the Iranian and Syrians to respect Lebanons laws. The point being made is not about Islam, but rather the laws of the country in question. I care about as much for religion as you would care about the man on the moon, however that said I expect any person Muslim or Bhuddist to respect the law of my country period.

It sounds like your concern is purely from a religious point of view Citizen. :-) if its not pro islam then its wrong. If I was to agree with you then you would be happy and we would be both wrong.

Thumb popeye 23 August 2018, 04:19

It is the Australian politician's concern that is based on religious bias since he singled out Lebanese moslems. His stance is not about respecting the law as he did not mention that but rather about what he refers to as 'extremism' attributed to Islam.

Thumb whyaskwhy 24 August 2018, 21:34

Well hold on here you cannot be the pot calling the kettle black here. Most of the young set on these threads here are anti Syrian or Iran. And why? is it not for their lack or respect for lebanese law and also due in part that they are not from the same religious sect as you?. Then if a Canadian or an Australian states the same thing he has no right but you do? I think you need to re-evaluate your position here.

Thumb enterprise 23 August 2018, 05:03
