Restrict immigration? Good idea, let’s start with Islamic immigration

Fairfax reports:

Immigration¬†is set to hit record levels, pushing up house prices over the coming year, but Prime Minister John Key believes immigrants’ skills are needed and enough houses are “in the pipeline” in Auckland to meet the influx.

In their monthly update to ministers yesterday, Treasury officials said net permanent and long-term (PLT) migration in the year ending March was “likely to exceed our [December] Half Year Update forecast of a peak of 52,400″.

Inflows were expected to start easing in the first half of this year, and the impact on house prices and household wealth appeared more subdued in this cycle, possibly because of the concentration of 20-34-year-olds in the numbers.

“However, it is possible that the strength in PLT arrivals recently may begin to impact housing demand more significantly over the coming year,” they warned.

Key said there was no question immigration has some impact on housing.

“Generally, the Reserve Bank takes the view that net migration is positive for the economy but has some spill-over implications.”

Toby Manhire wants us to follow in Denmark and Sweden’s footsteps.

Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Toby Manhire is such a person. Rather than do what Churchill did when he joined England in the fight against Nazism he thinks that a more gutsy decision would be to increase our immigration, thereby bringing into our democratic country the very ideology that John Key wants us to oppose.

Sweden and Denmark increased their immigration and look what happened.

Woe to anyone in Sweden who dissents from the orthodox view that welcoming large numbers of indigent peoples from such countries as Iraq, Syria, and Somalia is anything but a fine and noble idea. Even to argue that permitting about 1 percent of the existing population to emigrate annually from an alien civilization renders one politically, socially, and even legally beyond the pale. (I know a journalist threatened with arrest for mild dissent on this issue.) Stating that there exists a Swedish culture worth preserving meets with puzzlement. And yet, the realities of immigration are apparent for all to see: welfare dependency, violent bigotry against Christians and Jews, and a wide range of social pathologies from unemployment to politically motivated rape. Accordingly, ever-increasing numbers of Swedes find themselves ‚ÄĒ despite known hazards ‚ÄĒ opting out of the consensus and worrying about their country‚Äôs cultural suicide.

All this is part, say critics, of a decade-long transformation in Denmark’s approach to immigration and integration, under pressure from the populist Danish People’s party, the DPP… Denmark’s Muslim population are the party’s particular focus. There are many Muslims, it says, who are unwilling to integrate and hostile to “Danish values” such as free speech.

Dutch MP Geert Wilders on Paris

This man is facing trial for “inciting racial hatred”, because he speaks for those who are scared and uncertain about the future of their country and their children.

Geert Wilders is a Dutch Politician and the founder and leader of the Party for Freedom which currently is the fourth-largest party in the Dutch parliament. (Wikipedia)

The rise and rise of nationalism in western democracies is a sign that the populations are rising up against the failures of successive governments to recognise the threat that Muslims that seek sharia law no matter where they live has to be met head on.

In our own country, there is thankfully no need for “reverse” Muslim immigration. ¬†But we must certainly act to stop adding fuel to a pile that will eventually ignite here too.

An adventure of a lifetime!

One of our readers shared this with me, and I thought it was time for another bit of truth-through-humour that the lefties and terrorists don’t like.

A. Go to  Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq  or Iran illegally. Never mind immigration quotas, visas, international law, or any of that nonsense. Demand a free house, benefits and food.

B. Once there, demand that the local government provide free medical care for you and your entire family.

C. Demand that all nurses and doctors be fluent in English, and that all food be cooked according to your specifications in the hospital.

D. Demand free local government forms, bulletins, etc. Be printed in English.

E. Procreate abundantly.

F.¬†Deflect any criticism of this allegedly irresponsible reproductive¬†–¬†Behaviour with, ‘It is a cultural thing; you wouldn’t understand.’ Read more »

Sweden sends Christmas message to Islam

20141225172145470734_20

A suspected arsonist set fire to a mosque in the Swedish town of Eskilstuna, injuring five people, police said, an incident which comes amid an intense debate over immigration.

The immigration debate has pitted the far right, which wants to cut the number of asylum seekers allowed into Sweden by 90 percent, against mainstream parties intent on preserving the Nordic country’s liberal policy. Read more »

Statistics and the law of probability

A Mathematician might talk about the law of probability, a gambler might talk about the odds.

If an individual coin toss or the roll of dice is considered to be a random event, then if repeated many times the sequence of random events will exhibit certain patterns, which can be studied and predicted.

Dice

If I am an employer and I need  long term employees I will consider the following.Women in their twenties and thirties are more likely to take maternity leave than Men. Not always, but they are statistically more likely. They are also more likely to resign in order to be at home with their children for a period of time than men. With that in mind to protect my business I would ensure that I did not hire mainly women in that age group as it would put my business at risk if a number of them took maternity leave or resigned in the same year. That may not seem fair but given the probabilities I would need to consider the risk. If the employees were easily replaced then I would not need to consider the risk but if they were highly trained individuals and hard to find then I certainly would be careful to get the balance right.

With Islamic immigration to New Zealand we need to consider the risks. Even if only 10% of them are going to become a threat to our way of life that is still one in ten. One in ten sounds a lot more scary than 10% doesn’t it?

If you knew that statistically 1 in 10 people attending a Christmas party were likely to cut your head off would you still attend the party?

Am I overstating the Muslim immigration threat?

Reader idbkiwi highlighted this in the comments yesterday. ¬†I thought it was worth a wider audience. ¬†In general, I tend to use the UK’s troubles with Islam and Muslim immigration. ¬†Yesterday, I highlighted the case where the UK armed forces are now recommended¬†not¬†to wear their uniforms in public, lest they be a target.

In Sweden, this is even worse.  The Swedish police recently reported on 55 areas within Sweden where the Swedish rule of law no longer exists.

The Swedish police recently released a map of 55 areas where they publicly admit to having surrendered control to the criminal gangs. These areas have long had problems with mailmen, fire trucks and ambulances being attacked when trying to enter, which has led to them routinely requesting police escort. Now it’s the police being attacked outright.

These no-go zones are primarily so-called ‚Äúexclusion areas‚ÄĚ which is the politically correct term for the 186 ghettos that have sprung up around Sweden in the past two decades. These areas are predominantly populated by immigrants from muslim countries with low education and even lower employment rates. The exception being the enthusiastic entrepreneurs in the fields of drug dealing, protection rackets and robberies.

Since the real law doesn’t apply, the function of justice has largely been taken over by the gangs themselves, not unlike how the mafia is seen as the go-to place in rural Italy when the local police is too corrupt to serve its purpose. Unofficial courts are held and punishments are meted out based on the cultural norms of the dominant gangs. Some no-go areas even have vehicle checkpoints at the border. Not police checkpoints, but the gangs protecting their turf from law enforcement and rival gangs.

This development would have been inconceivable only 20 years ago, and one would think this official surrender by the police would have made big headlines. This is not the case; the most attention it seems to have received in mainstream media is an¬†opinion piece in national paper Svenska Dagbladet. Read more »

How do we help protect the Westernised Muslims?

It’s not a good time to believe in Allah as the true God while living in an essentially secular or Christian country. ¬†Some might say “so what?”, but there are some good people getting squeezed here that are as much victims of circumstance as anyone else.

Muslims are facing the worst job discrimination of any minority group in Britain, according to new research which found that they had the lowest chance of being in work or in a managerial role.

Muslim men were up to 76 per cent less likely to have a job of any kind compared to white, male British Christians of the same age and with the same qualifications. And Muslim women were up to 65 per cent less likely to be employed than white Christian counterparts.

Muslims were the most disadvantaged in terms of employment prospects out of 14 ethno-religious groupings in the UK, researchers Dr Nabil Khattab and Professor Ron Johnston found using data from the Office for National Statistics’ Labour Force Survey of more than half a million people. Skin colour made little difference to the figures.

Dr Nabil Khattab, of Bristol University, said the situation was “likely to stem from placing Muslims collectively at the lowest stratum within the country’s racial or ethno-cultural system due to growing Islamophobia and hostility against them.

“They are perceived as disloyal and as a threat rather than just as a disadvantaged minority,” he added.

Well yes.   We are told that fundamentalists abroad are to lie to non-believers and live quietly and blend in.  But then, once numbers get high enough, they want their own facilities, their own needs met, and eventually, this tips over into pockets in the community transforming into locations foreign to their host countries.

The rise and rise of the anti-immigration right

The Conservatives and NZ First might survive the next few terms if the overseas trend makes its way here.  In the UK, the Uk Independence Party is going from strength to strength, no matter how many lefties call them racists.

Tory defector Mark Reckless today became Ukip’s second elected MP in a devastating blow to the Conservatives, declaring his new party will ‘give you back your country’.

He won the Rochester and Strood by-election by 2,920 votes, erasing the Tory majority of almost 10,000 that he secured in 2010.

In his acceptance speech, Mr Reckless said: ‘If we can win here, we can win across the country. If you vote Ukip, you get Ukip.’

Jubilant Nigel Farage punched the air and declared that the ‘massive, massive’ win in what he called a ‘David v Goliath battle’ meant ‘all bets are off’ for the general election in 2015.

The result is embarrassing for David Cameron who just six weeks ago tore into Mr Reckless and vowed to kick his ‘fat a***’ out of the Commons.

The Brits are sick to the back teeth about having their country overrun with EU immigrants. ¬† Their problems are ¬†much more advanced than hours, but immigration issues are becoming political drivers all over the world. ¬† Read more »

Letting the British come here without restraint is a bad idea

London Mayor and parliamentary hopeful Boris Johnson is backing a report by a British think-tank which calls for New Zealanders and Australians to freely live and work in Britain.

Mr Johnson has written a foreword to a Commonwealth Exchange report which calls for Kiwis and Australians to be given the same rights to travel and work in the United Kingdom as people from the European Union.

The report – How to Solve a Problem Like a Visa – was released last night [NZ time] by the British think-tank, which focuses on Commonwealth relations.

It recommended establishing a “bilateral mobility zone” which would allow Kiwis and Aussies to travel and work in Britain and Britons to travel and work reciprocally in those two countries. A similar argument was made for Canada.

Prime Minister John Key said he would welcome the development but was “sceptical” about the likelihood of it coming to fruition.

Immigration was a major political issue in Britain, he said. “They’ve got a general election in May next year and I think it’s going to be very challenging to see much progress in that area.”

When you think “British” you think of someone white, middle class, educated and with a job. ¬†You don’t think of a 2nd generation Muslim Nigerian, do you? ¬† Now, the 2nd generation Muslim Nigerian may very well be an upstanding citizen and a fine addition to our work force. ¬†But it highlights the larger problem: ¬†The UK is ground zero for immigrants that are without jobs, without experience, without a useful control of the English language and without the prospect of bringing anything to the partnership. ¬† Read more »
