Asylum seekers?

It's really sad that 27 people, believed to have come from Iraq and Iran, have drowned off Christmas Island in an attempt to claim asylum in Australia. Anyone with a basic knowledge of geography (which rules out leftie internationalist aid wasters) knows that Australia is not next door to Iraq and Iran. It's odd that people in fear of persecution didn't just turn themselves over to the authorities in neighbouring countries citing United Nations treaty obligations. Any port in a storm. However, the crap countries in between wouldn't provide the justice and culture of opportunity that Australia offers to successful immigrants. They prefer to criticise the West for causing all the problems in their corner of the world. Rather hypocritical when the vast majority of population of the countries on the way to Australia follow a religion, some say a way of life, one of whose pillars is giving charity to the needy. But the asylum seekers were probably the wrong sect and feared persecution from their co-religionists in the umma. Ironically, the people on the boat were not seeking asylum but running away from the asylum or madhouse that is the muslim world. Why can't they behave better to each other and the rest of the world?

Inshallah or whatever gibberish they spout comes to mind although human nature does tug at the heart strings a tad.

It's the Aussie instinctive sympathy with the underdog that saved those poor souls. That and their desperate need to find anyone with the cricketing skills to prevent England winning the Perth Test.

There is a lot of savagery in other parts of the world. Sadly too there is a lot of cowardice. Until these people stand up and fight instead of running away, they will merely import their lack of civilised behaviour to our shores. There are something like 20,000 failed Somali asylum seekers in Bristol and they are responsible for a considerable amount of crime, not to say local expense. Bristol, being particularly full of credulous and stupid lefties, has not begun to deal with the problem, apart from recruiting a few hundred more language assistants and multicultural advisors and care workers and god knows who else.

Welcome to eDysentery, WW. Many thanks for your comments.
The sad thing is that there aresome real gems, especially among the Iranian refugees, who are vital for nation-rebuilding after the corrupt theocratic regimes are toppled. Perversely, the EU and the UK in particular has been persecuting an Iranian opposition group, the People's Mujahaddin of Iran, while allowing terrorist filth like al-mahajaroun to fester on British campuses. We need to foster and support such resistance groups and governments in exile as was done in WW2. "Set the terroristans ablaze" as WSC would say. The vast majority are economic migrants wanting a taste of the West's opportunity and freedom, whether by work (undercutting wage rates) or crime.
