Saudi Arabia has 100,000 tents siting empty that can accommodate 3 million people

Another Islam Story you will not read in Australian Newspapers

While European countries are being lectured about their failure to take in enough refugees, Saudi Arabia – which has taken in precisely zero migrants – has 100,000 air conditioned tents that can house over 3 million people sitting empty.

The sprawling network of high quality tents are located in the city of Mina, spreading across a 20 square km valley, and are only used for 5 days of the year by Hajj pilgrims. As the website Amusing Planet reports, “For the rest of the year, Mina remains pretty much deserted.”

The tents, which measure 8 meters by 8 meters, were permanently constructed by the Saudi government in the 1990’s and were upgraded in 1997 to be fire proof. They are divided into camps which include kitchen and bathroom facilities.

The tents could provide shelter for almost all of the 4 million Syrian refugees that have been displaced by the country’s civil war, which was partly exacerbated by Saudi Arabia’s role in funding and arming jihadist groups.

However, as the Washington Post reports, wealthy Gulf Arab nations like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and others have taken in precisely zero Syrian refugees. Although Saudi Arabia claims it has taken in 500,000 Syrians since 2011, rights groups point out that these people are not allowed to register as migrants. Many of them are also legal immigrants who moved there for work. In comparison, Lebanon has accepted 1.3 million refugees – more than a quarter of its population.

While it refuses to take in any more refugees, Saudi Arabia has offered to build 200 mosques for the 500,000 migrants a year expected to pour into Germany.

Saudis argue that the tents in Mina are needed to host the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, but given that the Arabic concept of Ummah is supposed to offer protection to all Muslims under one brotherhood, surely an alternative location could be found so that Mina can be repurposed to house desperate families fleeing war and ISIS persecution?

While Europe is being burdened by potentially millions of people who don’t share the same culture or religion as the host population, Gulf Arab states refuse to pull their weight, resolving only to throw money at the problem.

The likelihood of the Saudis inviting Syrian refugees to stay in Mina is virtually zero, but the thousands of empty tents serve as a physical representation of the hypocrisy shared by wealthy Gulf Arab states when it comes to helping with the crisis.

One Extreemely Pissed Off Aussie Infidel

refugee-nowar-zone

It’s not asylum seeking when they travel through several safe countries to get to AUSTRALIA. It’s money seeking.

If they were genuine refugees fleeing persecution and not a threat to our children I would be the first one to put my hand up to assist them. But most of are coming from extremely violent countries where violence is all they know.

Most of them belong to a barbaric anti western, anti women, anti disbelievers, ideology from the Stone Age.

These people have already proven themselves to be detrimental to every country they infest. Social upheaval, soaring crime rates is always a result.

How can we import the exact same people and expect a different outcome?

This will only end in tears.

Australia Parliament to comply with UN World Government 17 Goals September 25-27

MENU for Official Documents September 25-27 Agenda


tony-abbott-1

Prime Minister Tony Abbott

If you are surprised that your parliament is handing over Australia to the United Nations “Agenda21” that will introduce a world government, then you need to be brought up to speed.

Did you know that the UN is planning to launch a “new universal agenda” for humanity in September 2015? That phrase does not come from me – it is actually right in the very first paragraph of the official document that every UN member nation will formally approve at a conference later this month. The entire planet is going to be committing to work toward 17 sustainable development goals and 169 specific sustainable development targets, and yet there has been almost a total media blackout about this here in the United States. The UN document promises that this plan will “transform our world for the better by 2030“, and yet very few Australians have even heard of the 2030 Agenda at this point. Instead, most of us seem to be totally obsessed with the latest celebrity gossip or the latest nasty insults that our puppet politicians have been throwing around at one another. When will people finally start waking up?

Both Liberal and Labor parties are totally compliant with “Agenda21” and have it as a hidden agenda since 1990, keeping you out of the loop.

The United Nations is the worlds most proven inefficient organisation, a facade working for international corporations and bankers to launder themselves as humanitarian while harvesting massive funding and power-base footing ready for Agenda21 opening the flood gate to dominate under one government they already preside over.

We have compiled some information for you with the current ““Agenda21” foot holding that will make George Orwell’s 1984 fiction novel become reality.

gears-moving

From the official UN document these quotes are disturbing:

You need to be concerned

We, the Heads of State and Government and High Representatives, meeting at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 25-27 September 2015 as the Organization celebrates its seventieth anniversary, have decided today on new global Sustainable Development Goals.

Now you really need to be VERY concerned

On behalf of the peoples we serve, we have adopted a historic decision on a comprehensive, far-reaching and people-centred set of universal and transformative Goals and targets. We commit ourselves to working tirelessly for the full implementation of this Agenda by 2030. We recognize that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. We are committed to achieving sustainable development in its three dimensions – economic, social and environmental – in a balanced and integrated manner. We will also build upon the achievements of the Millennium Development Goals and seek to address their unfinished business.

This is nothing less than a global government takeover of every nation across the planet. The “goals” of this document are nothing more than code words for a corporate-government fascist agenda that will imprison humanity in a devastating cycle of poverty while enriching the world’s most powerful globalist corporations like Monsanto and DuPont for starters.

“Australia is deeply committed to accelerating progress towards achievement of the MDGs and the ongoing discussions on the post-2015 agenda” – Attributed to Australian United Nations Security Council – http://australia-unsc.gov.au/australia-and-the-un/ .

Now the future of Australia and future generations are to be handed to the United Nations … DO SOMETHING … TODAY ! ! ”

PARK STAFF ON HOLIDAY, IGNORE BRUMBY WITH BROKEN LEG

It has been reported bushwalkers appear to have frightened a Brumby to run through a rabbit warren. Several witness statements allege the bushwalkers were acting hostilely towards the heritage horses in the Tantangara Blue Water Hole area about the time the horse appeared with a broken leg.

Park staff involved with Brumby trapping, were approached about the horse’s plight quoting;

“they were off duty and on holiday and nothing would be done”.

NSW Snowy National Parks Boo-Boo Brumby Problem

On the 10th August 2009, SOS-NEWS received a letter from a person wishing to be known as “Boo Boo” who had read one of our stories on the shooting of Brumbies at Thredbo with high powered rifles.  Deciding to become a whistle blower quoted, “I am in a vulnerable position to retaliatory action from NSW National Parks” and request to be anonymous in any publications”.

Our investigators have confirmed important information contained in “Boo Boo’s” first letter and all subsequent letters along with several other whistle blowers information compiled in our extensive database.

Current Model (BAR's)

Current Model (BAR’s)

From “Boo Boos” letters we followed up one interesting item with a freedom of information disclosure that a  now retired manager of the lower snowy National Parks, held a “Commissioners Permit”(NSW Police Commissioner) for multiple 7.65mm NATO caliber Browning Automatic military assault rifles (BAR), and in the balance of probabilities the licensed transferred to another NP public servant.

The question here;

“why the hell National Parks would need fully automatic military assault rifles when farmers effectively use bolt action .223 rifles for shooting feral wild dogs, goats & pigs plus euthanaising large livestock like horses & cattle”?

 A few Hypotheticals for 2009 and prior to ponder.

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

Two old brumbies that lived on the lower slopes of Mt Janungal for many years in the 90’s and were accustom to hikers and fishermen seeking out campers who had the pleasure of their company were executed.

Two Kosciusko National Park staffers acting under management instructions to shoot these two tame brumbies near Mt Janungal that also involved an RSPCA person.

That this was not for humane purposes but for NSW National Parks opening of the rebuilt O’Keefe’s Hut to tourist.

That the presence of tame friendly wild horses and no sign of horse damaging the environment did not suit that area National Parks management personal agenda along with the Greenies agenda to have all our wild brumbies shot.

That careful timing of the shooting was just before winter limiting the chance of the shattered bodies being found before wild dogs, snow and time destroyed the evidence……... or did it?

Would you be upset?

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

That just outside the Kosciusko Marangle State Forest (with much having been handed over to National Parks) brumby wild horses were shot down in groups under a hail of heavy caliber automatic rifle fire.

Such weapons requiring police commissioner approval.

Would you be upset?

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

That horse riders appeared on a ridge in Kosciusko National Park while parks were aerial shooting training on goats and were driven off by the helicopter along with ground rangers who just happened to be there.

That reports received suggested loud automatic heavy gunfire was heard before the chase which took 4 hours costing many thousands of dollars, then the subsequent kangaroo court case and more dollars.

That wild horse numbers in that area were quietly reduced from weeks of this “Goat Shooting”.

Would you be upset?

 A once silenced and controlled public now seek clarity outside the media and government box of tricks.  Some we will furnish soon through Snowy Brumby Support Group ( www.snowybruymby.com ) as election time looms for politicians, as public servants cringe in fear of exposure.

ANZAC Centenary Minister Refuses Light Horse in Troop March

 

Australian Light Horseman & BrumbyAlbany Western Australia Anzac centenary commemoration troop march November 1st 2014 on York Street, will be without the Albany 10th Light Horse group to represent some 160,000 brumbies that left Albany in 1914 for the 15 Australian Light Horse regiments .

The Bunbury group wanted 15 riders and horses to represent the 15 Australian Light Horse regiments, wearing the specific colours on their shoulder and lance, and two other horses to represent the New Zealand contingents.

 

ronaldson mpThe bloke that sacked the Light Horse Group is none other than Canberra based Minister for Veteran Affairs and Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of ANZAC, Michael Ronaldson (pictured wear the 100 years lapel badge for Anzac Centenary).

Lapel Badge

Quoted on his website, “He believes that the forthcoming Centenary of Anzac gives Australia an opportunity to ensure current and future generations understand the obligations a nation has to those who have served their nation, to veterans and their families now and into the future”.

Residing in Ballarat Victoria one of the major base camps for radical greenies in Australia, Mr Ronaldson MP attended school there, served on the local council, practiced as a Barrister and Solicitor and to survive in the green belt we may find Senator Ronaldson for political survival favouring the annihilation of our heritage horse the Brumby from the Australian landscape, hence this decision to stop the light horsemen riding to commemorate the 100 years when the Brumbies served Australia in 1914-18 as a major part of Anzac.

lighthorse-2
Senator Ronaldson’s Anzac Centenary message to the people of Australia concerning the Albany troop march is as follows;

A Department of Veterans’ Affairs spokesman defended the decision to not include the Light Horses in the march, saying the march was not a re-enactment.

“Large crowds are expected to be lining the route of the troop march, and as we are not assured of the horses’ and riders’ experience with crowds and their ability to handle those conditions, then we are not willing to accept the risk that this poses to the public,” he said.

“It is important to note the troop march is not a re-enactment, participants are serving Australian and international defence personnel, cadets and veterans only.

“Therefore there is no requirement for the 10th Light Horse to be involved.”

abbott-ronaldsonStandup and be counted Represent the Anzac’s as expected of government

Bunbury 10th Light Horse Troop president Harry Ball said he was disappointed no horses would be involved after the group put in a submission to be part of the march 18 months ago.

The Bunbury group wanted 15 riders and horses to represent the 15 Australian Light Horse regiments, wearing the specific colours on their shoulder and lance, and two other horses to represent the New Zealand contingents.

“We are voluntary, the horses are well-trained and we have insurance,” he said.

“We were told the concern was manure and that people would slip in it, but the Denmark Pony Club had offered to clean it up during the march.

If Minister Ronaldson is so worried about horseshit he can limit the spread by resigning before he takes more of it to Anzac Cove while bearing a hypocritical wreath, wearing a well rehearse solemn face, a person who has never seen military service that is reflected in his action for political survival.

9th light horse reinforcements
This is a picture of our history, our heritage where the brumbies carried our young men into battle and thousands died. Those that were left at the end of the war were ordered to shoot their horses for they could not bring them back to Australia.

Now we have the greens and government shooting what is left of the brumbies to cover mismanagement of public lands the wild horse can no longer cultivate as they did long before national parks were introduced on their land under false and misleading science with an agenda of genocide for the Australian Wild Horses now classified as destructive by pamphlet professors grasping tight to massive taxpayer grants for survival at any cost.

If a part of our Australian history can be stopped because of horse shit, then maybe our monarch should look at her own backyard under the same view she oversees in Australia.

household cavalry-2The horse poo from the Royal House Hold Cavalry has been collected as an essential ingredient for the compost in Kew Gardens London since 1791 for biodiversity.

While horses activities support 30000 species of plants, biodiversity kept at Kew gardens London, your Australian Government advisers make claims “Brumby kill biodiversity” in Australia!  Absolutely false science in the eyes of international experience.

Interesting how your Australian government are killing our national heritage brumbies for the same reason”.

Another 93 Brumbies Sent For Slaughter by NSW Government

Parks loading Brumbies – Note the yellow electric shock stick in right hand of man …

The Snowy People are disgusted with their staff that are meant to be acting in the best interests of their public land and national assets.

From the NSW Victorian ACT Federal Ministers down to field staff they have Brumby blood on their hands.

It appears the mighty dollar is geared to mindless big animal massacres and take their runs for water sales mark up the water price legacy of the environmental work Brumbies have done over decades.

Simpletons that live “battery hen” existences in their cement jungles paying little for a bounty of cheap clean sweet water are unaware of the environmental cost to that water.  Our water catchments are deadly for grazing animals be they native wildlife or multicultural Australians like Brumbies.  Australia’s freedom fighters tricked into entering trap yards laced by salt, molasses, rice straw in the depths of winter when the elite head off for their ski holidays and campaign for Brumby “removal.” Ethnic cleansing were environmentalists with strong non Australian accents are declaring themselves exempt.  They are part of multicultural Australia aren’t they?  But not the horses that preceded them?  Built the cities, towns roads, railways, dams, food and water supplies.

From the salt laced trap yards the terrified horses are bundled onto trailers and sent to slaughter because its is “efficient!” say the economic rationalists.  The Australian Brumby has been given its freedom to run in natural valleys providing tough sensible work horses.  The valleys grazed green, fire safe, bio-diverse are very attractive to national park land grabs.  The water, sweet and clean run off for sales at massive profits as the water does not need major or any treatment.

People calling themselves “environmental activists” live affluent lives in the cities expecting abundance of water, food no matter what the environmental or social cost, de-stocked, de-habited, locked up dingo infested land to inevitably incinerate in man made bushfire.

Water is drained off the once vibrant Brumby runs, once shared with wallaby, kangaroo, echidna, platypus, possum, lizards, frogs, fish, sea of wildflowers, birds of every colour and description.  Another 93 Brumbies join the killing chains and goes with them the lifeblood of the Snowy drained away through the grate of the slaughter house.

The various Governments are pretending to be in public consultation about Brumby management or the more degraded demeaning language of “feral exotic pest.” The hunt is on to muster goons to stand in front of a camera back dropped by the latest deciduous Australian forest common site in public land converted to national park wilderness city water catchment commercial tourist destination the incinerated bushfire killed forests.  The Snowy People are disgusted when Brumbies are shot for vegetation impact when mismanagement of their public land national heritage horses is there for the world to see.  Why not shoot the policy makers that have burnt our high country and butcher the Brumby.

In the last decade unstoppable bushfires have ravaged between Canberra and Melbourne.  Suburbs and towns leveled to burnt rubble.  Farms wildlife mass extinction events yet our Government staff persist with maniac haste to destroy the Brumby the last effective vegetation manager in our public land.  The last remaining pygmy possum, Mountain Plum Pine, Corroboree frogs, Alpine Spotted tree frogs, alpine skinks, broad tooth rat cling to the remaining effective, adequately stocked Brumby runs.  Brumby runs either did not burn or burnt at low intensity.  Defied so called effects of “climate change” when in fact massive unstoppable fires resulted from management change where big grazers were stripped away for short term unsustainable water sales profits at the expense of the ecology.

Blow in boffins and bureaucrats are setting about the extinction of not only the Brumby but the biodiversity that clings to the last of the big animal grazed green runs.  93 freedom and fire fighters, have been mindlessly sentenced to death by the economic rationalists that boast superior intellect just this last week.  Happy birthday horses.

Australia loves you 100 years on from when 160,000 horses were exported in 1914. What a commemoration, more bloodshed.

What of the public consultation process with the public when this quantity of horses are being executed?  Entire family groups exterminated mindlessly.  These horses selected for temperament, constitution, soundness for many thousands of years.  They fought loyally beside our soldiers for a free nation, humanity, democratic process.  In their darkest hour these are values they are being denied for “efficiency”

Vandalism terminates this co-evolution with humanity for thousands of years within seconds in individuals but entire family groups sent off to extermination.  Re-homing has largely been bypassed or resources over taxed by indecent haste and fanatical zeal to execute another ill conceived political orders issued coldly from afar.

1080 Poison the Saviour

profession 2014 (1 of 1) (2)I have written much on this in the past as the years have passed in an effort to respond to the anti-wild-dog control voices in this country Australia.

Lately that same anti-voice has tried to use the exploits of their New Zealand counterparts and the use there of, Sodium Fluoroacetate as an environmental protection tool, as being the bad guy at the table. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Much of the knowledge of this poison has come from extremely lengthy research done time and time again so as to appease the environmentalist’s concerns. Most of those concerns were wild and emotional conjecture given breath via a loud and vociferous minority who in fact were, and are, killing the wilds through misguided kindness.

This link goes to the heart of some of the latest research and the most current report available from Aotearoa – The Land of The Long White Cloud – NZ.

If you have a concern over the efficacy; the safety; the cruelty; the environmental effects along with the effectiveness of this chemical in controlling pests for the betterment of all; then this is not just a must read, but it is a must download report to disseminate.

Keep in mind; what NZ does with 1080 is far removed from what Australia does, but the goodness such a deadly naturally occurring chemical does for the very environment we all need, and wish to survive; may not be a panacea, but it has no equal by all accounts.

VESTED INTERESTS IN COMMISSIONED SCIENCE ARE SQUEALING

cattledrive-8After 175 years of returning big animal activity to the Australian high country ecology with success, stockmen are seeing some justice and equality in participating in genuine “peer reviewed science” objectivity and impartiality in returning big animals to the Wonnangatta Station and valley after 26 years of vegetation abandonment and neglect. The experiment is to observe retrieval of the vegetative chaos generated in those 26 years and therefore to run the trial elsewhere, misses the entire purpose of the scientific approach. The Academy of Science and Royal Society boffins with their rabble of environmental lobby groups in the orchid, bird watching, sale of camping gear shops do not “get the objective” of the approach. When the massive man made fires of 2002-9 were incinerating the alps in mulch lovingly deliberately accumulate for decades in the chaos of deprivation of natural processes. Megafauna activity and cool frequent fire taken away because of some foreign ideology and water profitability short term and unsustainable from an ecological view point.

A massive risk of grass and bushfire across the region has been lovingly accumulated under the blessing of bushwalking boffins bureaucrats hiding behind their law books to bring about mass extinction and destruction of the nations water supply. Wonnangatta in 1988 joined the long list of Australian grazing and forestry land taken by bushwalking boffins and bureaucrats for the management values achieved by local communities. The restoration of wildlife abundance, wildflowers, grasses ancient trees kept fire safe and well fed, the water run off clean, abundant, reliable taken for some obscure political trade off deals in public assets for swinging votes with boffins and bureaucrats getting Labour Green coalitions over the line. Kick backs of public paid bushwalking jobs over seeing doing nothing in the wilderness but watch the bonfire build from policy failure, denial and deprivation.

Government in Australia costs the people annually in the order of $20B for Federal government, $100B for state and territory governments and $10B for local councils considering themselves governments. There are 39 universities costing over $9B annually in public funding with 1+M students undergoing indoctrination at their own cost, including 6700+ PhD students with 4800 of those Australian’s. 80% of PhD’s are screened cheap labour and end their research careers after the PhD. Largely a waste of money and resources at such a massive failure rate when the activists are shutting down our industry because of work place demands for unrealistic wages and conditions, animal welfare and environmental beat ups. Australia is living on what can be dug out of the ground in raw unvalued added coal, iron ore, other minerals and energy sources. Building big houses for government bods which apparently feel no obligation to represent anyone else’s interests but their own greed and arrogance as they splash around public assets with gay abandon and no accountability as they hide among the blur of bureaucracy and boffin qualifications passing opinions outside their sphere of qualification.

Exposing the ‘great custodians of country’ myth

Wildfires on North Stradbroke Island due to lack of hazard reduction burning

North Stradbroke Island lies just off the coastline from Brisbane and is a popular tourist destination for adventurers from the mainland. With its long sandy beaches and easy surf fishing it attracts thousands of anglers each year who make the short journey from the mainland by barge.

‘Straddie’, covering 54,500 hectares is the second largest sand island in the world. Its only industries are sandmining and tourism, which support its 2000 permanent inhabitants.

On any weekend and during holiday season the beach becomes an extension to the Pacific Highway where hundreds of four wheel drives converge, turning the beaches into major thoroughfares.

Last week, due to lightning strikes, fires broke out across the tinder dry island, eventually causing some settlements to be evacuated. A lack of hazard control burning in the cooler months of the previous 10 years created the most dangerous fuel load ever seen on the island.

The Rural Fire Service had a major incident on its hands with volunteers battling kilometres long fire fronts fanned by gusty winds. Fortunately there was no loss of human life but the island’s flora and fauna copped a savage beating.

Fires with such a large fuel load burn extremely hot for a more prolonged period, in many cases far too hot for standing eucalypts and other flora to survive. Most of the island’s scorched eucalypts will sucker from the trunk and limbs rendering their function in the natural habitat as useless.

In the aftermath of the searing flames, the environmental damage is strikingly evident. Hot fires also reduce the amount of already low levels of organic nutrients thus making it more difficult for regeneration.

Brisbane ecologist Dr Greg Baxter said the island’s ecology would take at least 20 years to recover, unless of course there is another wildfire in the meantime.

A lack of seasonal rainfall is also inhibiting plant regrowth

The island is home to a large koala bear population, 59 species of birds including a large colony of glossy black cockatoos, native rats and numerous reptiles.

North Stradbroke Island ablaze with wildfires causing extreme damage to flora and fauna which according to an ecologist, will take more than 20 years to recover.

The island has been claimed by the Quandamooka and Noonuccal aboriginal groups who assist the National Parks and Wildlife Service with management of its natural resources.

Perhaps the best known of the Noonuccal clan was the late activist Kath Walker, who fought for many years to gain native title to the island for her family.

Kath was one of the last of the island’s traditional people, passing away in 1993, and it seems some of the handed-down tribal lore Kath possessed was not passed on to the present generation of island inhabitants claiming aboriginality.

This writer stood on the hustings with Kath in the early 80’s.

If Kath did pass on what she knew the message did not get through to the great ‘custodians of country’ residing on the island and mainland.

These people who claimed native title, in a similar fashion to most other ‘aboriginal’ groups, either do not know how to manage ‘country’ properly, do not care or have been prevented by the idiotic Labor Party policies of the 90’s from burning excess fuel loads each year or whenever it was deemed necessary.

Former Queensland Forestry Department practices of conducting annual or two-yearly cool fires, guarantee the damage from uncontrolled fires will be minimal and does not have a great impact on flora and fauna.

But what happened to the traditional hazard reduction burning of the open forest and grassland in the traditional August burning off period?

Did the NPWS prevent the local indigenous people from burning off in previous years? Perhaps it seems from similar lessons learnt in other indigenous controlled land or national parks, most of the old knowledge has not been passed on because the gap between the ways of the last of the traditional people of the 1920’s and the present generation is too wide.

This knowledge is lost forever. It is accepted in some anthropological circles that the lost messages from true traditional people have been supplanted by university trained anthropologists with an agenda not necessarily in the best interests of indigenous people.

Some commentators liken the beaten up stories of modern anthropologists to ‘reinventing the wheel.’

Unfortunately politicians of all hues believe it as gospel that modern day aborigines are the only capable ‘custodians of country,’ the latest fashionable coinage of the annual $25 billion aboriginal industry.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

 

This lone koala survived the wildfire which left its food source of various tree leaves and other plants a scorched, parched and devastated landscape.
