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.

Debt Summit calls for government moratorium on bank foreclosures

From cairnsnews.org

A meeting of more than 300 cattle producers at Charters Towers has called on the federal government to create the Australian Development and Reconstruction Board and place a moratorium on bank foreclosures before the State’s cattle industry completely collapsed.

Called by the Member for Dalrymple, Shane Knuth the crisis meeting followed on from a similar meeting held by the Member for Mt Isa, Robbie Katter at Winton last year.

Producers demanded the federal and state governments act immediately to introduce the ADRB, modelled on the Rural Reconstruction Board of 30 years ago which was designed to absorb the “toxic” trading bank interest debt that has engulfed primary industries and to issue low interest development funds for primary producers and small business.

More than 20 resolutions were passed unanimously by the gathering of desperate and often distraught cattle producers.

“While an unprecedented 80 per cent of the state is reeling under a drought declaration, producers heard how social media and 60 Minutes superstar Charlie Phillott, 81, of Winton, beat the ANZ Bank and had his property returned with a substantial settlement“.

Mr Phillott’s plight has been closely monitored by the 60 Minutes television show and scored an Australian record 3.5 million hits on Toowoomba veterinarian David Pascoe’s social media site.

He urged producers to stick together when fighting questionable behaviour by the banks.

He said he had never missed a repayment but when the bank restructured his loan he was unable to manage and was eventually put off his Winton property after the bank took it over.

“All of us here owe a great deal of gratitude to Bob Katter for he saw my position and stood by me for two years ,” Mr Phillott said.

Primary Industries Minister Bill Byrne when addressing the meeting started an uproar when he said the State Government would not be building more dams because there was “no business return” from farming.

Charters Towers cattleman Mick Pemble attacked the Minister asking why he could not build dams, and “…do what everybody else in this room does and borrow the bloody money!”

“If I could make it rain I would, but our resources are finite and we are working on what can be done in the circumstances,” Mr Byrne said.

“There are amendments before Parliament and our policy is that water is critical to agriculture but the government capacity to fund such a project is limited.

“If you build dams in the city or for mining you get capital back but for agriculture you do not get capital back.

He said federal money or private investment would be needed to build dams.

Meeting chairman Shane Knuth said he was aware of highly questionable behaviour by bank-appointed receivers that had caused a lot of grief to families through no fault of their own.

He said there were many hundreds of northern producers in financial difficulties and the local industry could collapse unless the bank debt issue was resolved.

“I know some of you want to speak, and I am aware that confidentiality agreements stop you from telling us about what the receivers have done to you, but everyone is behind you and we must stop the foreclosures,” Mr Knuth said.

Burdekin farmer Max Menzell asked the Minister why police were involved when foreclosures took place adding that they should not be used by the banks and receivers as debt collectors because foreclosures were a civil matter.

The Minister strongly defended the use of police stating categorically: “That is the law.”

Mr Knuth said more meetings and what actions should be taken would be called unless the government brought the banks into line and stopped foreclosures immediately.

Mr Phillott said the northern grazing industry and businesses owed Bob Katter a great deal of gratitude for giving producers a voice in dealing with banks and foreclosures.

Humpty Dumpty will have a great fall If the High Court files this application to stop bankruptcy

When will the first shots be fired by the oppressed citizenry

A former police prosecutor has attempted to file an application in the High Court of Australia against his bankruptcy proceeding initiated by Mackay City Council. If filed it will bring down the entire bogus system of corporate government operating in Australia.

So far the Registrar, Deborah Carslund, has refused to file it, knowing the consequences would collapse the unlawful corporate system.

David Walter, of Herberton, (pictured)who is a passionate Constitutional analyst, gave his evidence by phone to a Federal Court Circuit hearing in Brisbane on February 14.

The presiding Judge, Angelo Vasta, said in spite of the pleadings by Mr Walter detailing the unlawful system of government, he was bound by the Bankruptcy Act 1966, that coincidentally was the year of the introduction of decimal currency, that Mr Walter contends has no value anywhere in the world.

Judge Vasta upheld the order of the lower court to bankrupt Mr Walter, in spite of his admiration for the judge’s concordance with his argument.

He told Judge Vasta by telephone hook-up that in light of careful manipulations and entrapment by counsel Mr Houghton, instructed by King and Co for the Mackay City Council to entice him into the court, he could not enter a courtroom in Queensland or he faced two year’s incarceration as a result.

Judge Vasta did not know about the defendant’s dilemma, brought about by the former tenacious prosecutor’s appearances in Queensland courtrooms over a decade helping land owners who had been crushed by former Premier Beattie’s unlawful Vegetation Management Act and other corporate policies.

The Bar Association with its normal vindictive attitude towards any person who steps outside of the precious but unlawful legal boundaries jealously protected by the State’s legal system, was able to get an order from one of its compliant Justices to have David Walter banned from court rooms or face two years jail.

Such is the threat posed by David Walter to the cosy relationship between the political party government of the day, all levels of the judiciary, the banks, the Bar Association and the Law Society.

Mr Walter has asked readers to send this article to every email address they have in their address book.

 

ZOMBIES FROM THE DEEP SURFACE AGAIN

May 25th 2010 we published this story with concern to government pollution of our oceans. Maybe this explains the shoals of dead and deformed fish appearing around NSW coastline, for the politicians took no notice in 2010 and we may expect the same result today.

Burned hand in 2004 by a mustard gas shell

SOS-NEWS released a small segment on toxic waste dumping in our near off-shore waters in an earlier issue. This story received quite some attention from the South Coast fraternity of New South Wales. Initially it was apparent that many down that way wished that this issue would just slide under the carpet and not rear it”s ugly dangerous head on their patch.

Then, obviously some in that neck of the woods did a little research of their own and as far as we can tell, a bit of pressure was put on to the Coastal Rights association to look into this time bomb and in so doing they contacted SOS-NEWS. Discussions re this matter ensued and the CRA decided that they would consider the issue.

After a period CRA came back to SOS-NEWS and although they were coming to a conclusion from their own research into this poisoning of Australia”s future, they wished to take the matter on themselves. The deal agreed to by SOS-NEWS and CRA was to allow the CRA time to contact Politicians of their choice and attempt to get (a) recognition of the problem (b) political movement towards addressing the immediate concerns, and (c) Political management of the public”s right to knowledge of the seriousness of the problem.

SOS-NEWS reluctantly agreed to this on the proviso that there would only be a short time frame given to allow the Political leaders to come to the table with CRA. CRA advised that they would write to a number of senior politicians and keep SOS-NEWS abreast of the responses, thereby giving both them and us a clear indication that this was not going to be a political snow job, as almost all else in the state of NSW has been since the post Carr, now Iemma government has delivered to the citizens since they have been and are still in power.

We have now heard from CRA and they have advised of the response they have received, but first, the letter CRA sent to 24 Politicians across this Nation.

Australia’s New Contaminated Food Bowl

wellworths

What lunacy have we condoned to allow gas fracking of our only food bowl, our water aquifers and rich farming land?

The same duopoly running the same mining money train driving Australian farming into extinction.

Family farmers of Australia are closing down under Government and Greens hidden agenda. By utilising “designed for failure programs” like wild dog control, unworkable vegetation laws (enforced on their land) paid for irrigation flows diverted to environment projects from crops.  The farmer is financing his own demise from the $400M levies imposed by Government pandering to the Green movement.

The land of plenty is fast becoming the land of bugger-all. The importation of produce is being touted as the viable alternative to home grown. As the infrastructure of the family farm is being systematically disassembled, companies from China, India, Singapore and Japan  are the new owners of Australian farming land acquired from destitute, wild dog affected and despondent farmers who have had enough of the persecution.

These new farmers, who only employ their own nationals send home their Australian produce TAX FREE, and are unhindered by the constraints of Environment Department enforcers, Government stopping exports, such as the direct sale of full cream milk and many more. They seem immune to Green Groups protesting and sabotaging farms, etc, these are but some of the facts Australians have now been reduced to.

The near extinct family farmer, once regarded as the cleanest and healthiest food producer in the world, is being replaced by many  contaminated imports grown and harvested in Australia. Generations that kept the Australian family farm running are no longer there. It’s all too hard! At mercy of the constant threat of jail time, massive fines for non-compliance to a plethora of incomprehensible, vote chasing legislation.  This agenda driven persecution targeting farming families to appease the urban greens is releasing the untouchable, unaccountable and bullyboy law enforcers of government.

Faced with bankruptcy and out of control rates of suicide in rural Australia farmers are choosing careers elsewhere.

Metropolitan people unaware and at this point, unaffected by these facts rely on supermarket doors being open.

Transition from Australian to imported produce on the shelves is smooth with fine print labeling and clever marketing accompanied by attractive pricing. The expectation that food sold by reputable supermarkets is safe leads to a who give a hoot mentality. Except the occasional death and some fish glowing in the freezer maybe.from our new food bowl;

  • Frozen berry products packed in China before distribution in Australia being recalled due to possible hepatitis “A” contamination, with at least five people contracting the disease spread when traces of faecal matter containing the virus come in contact with hands, water or food and then enter a person’s mouth.
  • Victorian hospitals are told to dispose of chocolate mousse, which has been found to contain listeria.
  • Did you know that the CWA (Country Women’s Association) is no longer allowed to provide food in emergencies to volunteer SES , Bushfire fighters as they have done for over 150 years … WHY? … They are not accredited food handlers. The accredited suppliers of food services to these volunteers provide imported produce and bottled water. Do you not find this amazing?

This can only happen with your continual approval of your government sanctioned new food bowl agenda.

Andrew’s Periscope Crap from the Crypt in Canberra

Poli-Waffle Government bull & Spin banner

Competitive Evaluation Process

Watch this video first to hear the encrypted waffle by Andrews as he dodges the media questions, then read the story below.

The Minister for Defence, Mr. Kevin Andrews, taxpayer funded  $336,599pa plus perks, has certainly practised the mandatory pollie skill of speaking much, meaning little, thus sidelining his real intentions.  He has managed to elevate to the next level, in that he has not only confused the public, but the rest of the Government with respect to the Submarine tendering process, or whatever else he may have been thinking.

The Submarines shall no doubt be build overseas, with the decision more than likely already set in concrete. The latest assumed tendering requirement, being the “Competitive evaluation process”, probably already excludes Australian builders anyway, as any such analysis would probably declare us lacking competence in manufacture, and ability to hold to time and budget.  Why do we need twelve conventional submarines anyway, in a nuclear world???

However, many have attempted to root out the cleverly concealed meaning within the statement, the code of which required considerable decoding.  Bringing confusion to a complete Government, most of whom are members of the legal fraternity, is no mean feat.

I have studied this statement and believe I may be able to elucidate and offer up some understanding:  “The Submarine project should be so structured, such that it maximises the probability of project success and minimises the cost and time required for the philosophy of commonality and standardisation”.  I hope this helps; even Mr Andrews to understand that which he said.  As a resultant implication, there must exist, the characterisation of specific criteria.

This should qualify me for at least a seat on the backbench.  Amen.

John Bushell.
