Don’t like it, there’s the airport

A Somali refugee family is moaning about the largesse of the state they are currently enjoying. Enjoying it I might ad by squatting rather than how every other resident deals with Housing Corp:

She said the new arrivals moved into the Shirley state house without the permission of Housing New Zealand.

Chief executive of Refugee Services, Heather Hayden, said the family was not living in an “acceptable situation”, but the agency was doing what they could to help.

Only refugees with “strong long-term family links” are now placed in quake-hit Christchurch.

Three families came into the city from this year’s quota and Hayden said “this is the only situation where there has been a problem finding a house.”

Hayden said Warsame’s family had turned down three houses in Christchurch because the family thought they were in the wrong suburb or too damp.

Contrast this Somali family with the Burmese family I blogged about earlier.

    Who lets these people into the country? Send them back to Somalia.

    • Gazzaw

      Fat chance of them going back Redge and what’s more the bleeding heart liberals at their local CAB will be advising them on how best to get their extended family into NZ at our expense.

        Gaz – recomend Dan Hannans blog today, very relevant to this topic.


      • Gazzaw

        Yes, you’re right Boss. It’s worth a read everyone. There but for the grace of God………..but just give it a few more years unless we get clever and learn from Europe’s mistakes.

  • Boss Hogg

    Welfarism at its absolute worst.  These people thrive in Sweden and the problems are already well out of hand.

    The need to share a house with out mate Phil @ Whore  – come on Phil, you can all bludge together like one happy family.

    • Mr_Blobby

      I don’t think the Somalis would put up with the whore. I can see the complaints about there human rights being abused. We could swap Whore for a few Somalis though if nothing else it would be an improvement. He would fit in with the drug crazed criminals. Hope you don’t get motion sickness Whore.

    WO When Helen Clarke let the refugees in from that ship (name escapes me) we bought in a whole load of YOUNG Afghan refugees who landed in this country, no family andthe 3/5ths of the square root of stuff all.

    One had his citizenship rushed thorugh so he could represent NZ at an International Football competition.  The others have completed their apprenticeships and education and ar grateful to NZ.

    Reminds me of the Whineing Omas who arrived in the 70’s.  I was an immigrant in 73 and paid my oewn way.  I used to get stick from Mates and Engineer officers on the ship I was on.  Gave as good as I got and mixed in and was accepted.

    I’m looking forward to all the excuses from the left, once NZ has been sufficiently culturally enriched by these and their ilk that they start to really make their presence felt – i.e. skyrocketing crime rates, whole suburbs turned into no-go zones resembling downtown Mogadishu or Kabul, paedophile gangs drugging and raping white schoolgirls. Just look at parts of England, Norway or Sweden to see where we are headed.

    • thor42

      You’re spot-on, Mike. I remember seeing some stats saying that in one city (it may have been Malmo), every single rape in the last “x” years had been committed by Muslims.

      • Mike

         I have a friend who is Hindu, he reckons in their bible it is said that world will eventually be taken over by islam, then it will end i.e. all other religions and cultures will be wiped from the earth, then the followers of islam will slaughter each other to the last man.

      • Roland

        Pretty heavy stuff Thor, my partner is Hindu and lives on the Island of Bali.  I see from the local press (Indonesian) that the Government is wanting to keep dresses below the knee level and for quite some time the ruling parties (Indonesians) have been trying to make Bikinis and other brief costumes prohibited. The local Hindus are not liking this as it means the end of Tourism for Bali..

      • Roland

        Bugger, forgot to say that my Partner has told me that Hindus think the Muslims will be the ‘first to burn’ Whatever that means… Forwards to that, we have just been on a trip around Vietnam on a bus with 26 Muslims and they were the nicest people you would meet… Most from Jakarta or Malaysia, sorry I will attach a large file that was sent from a friend of mine and if you read it, decide what you will…

        The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer
        Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan.
        15, 2008.

        It doesn’t take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the
        rest of Europe – and possibly to the rest of the world.

        ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez

        I walked down the street in Barcelona, and suddenly discovered a
        terrible truth – Europe died in Auschwitz. We killed six million Jews
        and replaced them with 20 million Muslims. In Auschwitz we burned a
        culture, thought, creativity, talent. We destroyed the chosen people,
        truly chosen, because they produced great and wonderful people who
        changed the world.

        The contribution of this people is felt in all areas of
        life: science, art, international trade, and above all, as the
        conscience of the world. These are the people we burned.

        And under the pretence of tolerance, and because we wanted to prove to
        ourselves that we were cured of the disease of racism, we opened our
        gates to 20 million Muslims, who brought us stupidity and ignorance,
        religious extremism and lack of tolerance, crime and poverty, due to
        an unwillingness to work and support their families with pride.

        They have blown up our trains and turned our beautiful Spanish cities
        into the third world, drowning in filth and crime.

        Shut up in the apartments they receive free from the government, they
        plan the murder and destruction of their naive hosts.

        And thus, in our misery, we have exchanged culture for fanatical
        hatred, creative skill for destructive skill, intelligence for
        backwardness and superstition.

        We have exchanged the pursuit of peace of the Jews of Europe and their
        talent for a better future for their children, their determined
        clinging to life because life is holy, for those who pursue death, for
        people consumed by the desire for death for themselves and others, for
        our children and theirs.

        What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe.

        The Global Islamic population is
        approximately1,200,000,000, that is ONE BILLION TWO HUNDRED MILLION

        The Jews are NOT promoting brain-washing children in military training
        camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause the maximum
        number of deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims. The Jews don’t hijack
        planes, nor kill athletes at the Olympics, or blow themselves up in
        German restaurants.

        There is NOT one single Jew who has destroyed a church.

        There is NOT a single Jew who protests by killing people.

        The Jews don’t traffic slaves, nor have leaders calling for Jihad and
        death to all the Infidels.

        Perhaps the world’s Muslims should consider investing more in standard
        education and less in blaming the Jews for all their problems.

        Muslims must ask ‘what can they do for humankind’ before they demand
        that humankind respects them.

        Regardless of your feelings about the crisis between Israel and the
        Palestinians and Arab neighbours, even if you believe there is more
        culpability on Israel’s part, the following two sentences really say
        it all:

        ‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more
        violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today , there would be no
        more Israel..” Benjamin Netanyahu

        When the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight
        Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all
        possible photographs to be taken and for the German people from
        surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to
        bury the dead.

        He did this because he said in words to this effect:

        ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses –
        because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up
        and say that this never happened.’

        Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its
        school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population, which
        claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet. However, this is a
        frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how
        easily each country is giving in to it.

        It isHow many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center
        ‘NEVER HAPPENED’ because it offends some Muslim in the United States?

        Do not just delete this message; it will take only a minute to pass
        this along.

      • Mr_Blobby

        Interesting read but I think you overestimate Muslims.
        1.       They are divided amongst themselves  Suni v Shite the first order is to kill each other
        2.       The Jews are next in line.
        3.       Other Races are last.

      • Mr_Blobby

        Good list Roland.
        But you forgot several attempts to steal New Zealand Passports and God knows how many you have got away with.
        You want to go to war with Iran because they have the ability to make Nuclear weapons and like everyone else in the World have the right to defend themselves.
        Israel has an arsenal of illegal Nuclear weapons, but not one sanction or any other penalty for developing them.
        The Eurozone governments despising your government because they tell lies.
        Israel has bombed and terrorized and invaded its neighbors.
        The little known fact that Iran in recent history hasn’t invaded or attacked any other country.
        So who are the real terrorists pointing the finger at everyone else.

      • Tom

        Mr Blobby, you are out of your friggin mind. Ffs

      • Boss Hogg

        Roland – outstanding contribution, thankyou.

        Mr Blobby – I think you are getting confused about what the best form of defence is.  To ensure peace……………..

  • Vlad

    I thought Whineing Omas was pretty interesting, I was trying to work out what country they came from, and I had guessed maybe Oman before I saw your correction!   Cheers.     

    • Bunswalla

      My mother-in-law is Dutch and their word for grandma is Oma (grandpa is Opa). However I’ve never heard her whine or whinge in 25 years, like most Dutch immigrants they got on with it and assimilated into society, contributing a hell of a lot to the country in the process.

      Not least my lovely wife.

      • Travdog

        And bloody hard workers they are too. In my years down in Southland I worked with and for Dutchies who made NZ their home, bloody good people. One dutchman I worked for had a saying “if its easy, it can’t be good for you.” While not always true, I always remembered this as a direct reflection on his work ethic, which in turn rubbed off on me. It’s a pity we can’t have more of these kind of people, as they contribute wealth to this country, not only financially, but intellectually.

  • Kthxbai

    I’ve worked with Somalis in the past, and have yet to find, as a group, a more entitled and self-centred culture. 

    My impression was that they thought their routine needs were a higher priority than other people’s urgent needs.  We do need to indicate to people who come here that there is a queue, they’re in it, and will be dealt with according to urgency of need.  And enforce that.

    • RedgeNZ

      I do not trust Somalis at all, just look at them, there is something deeply disturbing about Somalis.

  • thor42

    An **excellent** post there, Roland – many thanks for that. 
    I don’t think it’ll be very long before Europe rues the day that they opened the immigration floodgates to the Muslims.
    Very, very foolish move, and that article says it all. 

    • Travdog

      Very interesting read, and closer to the truth than people want to admit. Soon it’ll be offensive/illegal for butchers to stock non halal meat, liquor stores will disappear, and churches not allowed to display ‘non islamic’ scriptures in public.

      Sound paranoid? read this:

      2 years ago I was told of a similar occasion here in Auckland, but I’m yet to verify this or find some evidence of it.

      Food for thought.

      • jay cee

        the cross was removed as it was against army regulations. i like the way some people dream up a scenario and present it as an impending fact.

      • Travdog

        Oh please jay cee, pull the other one. Of course it’s “against army regulation.” No scenario here, just the western world being forced to pander to the muslims. Have a cold shower tonight.


    Here’s a test for the buggers.Moan once about NZ,,get a warning.Moan twice,and your sent back to whatever shithole you came from.Feel lucky we let you fuckers in.FFS Winston,heres some ammo worth having.

    • jay cee

      agreed their first english lesson should be “don’t bite the hand that feeds you”

  • thor42

    @Mr_Blobby:disqus  Blobby – “Who are the real terrorists?”
    Iran – for brutally murdering dozens (if not hundreds) of its own people in the crackdown against the Green movement.
    Iran – for supporting terrorists like Hezbollah, Hamas and the Syrian government. 
    What “countries” has Israel “invaded”, Mr_Blobby?
    Lebanon?  Maybe…. after countless rocket attacks by Hezbollah. 
    Please show me a **non-aggressive** country that Israel has invaded. By non-aggressive, I mean a country that did not attack Israel before hand.  

    • Just your memory that is short or what – oh sorry they were just invading disputed territory weren’t they can’t call that invading another country then…..? Also the great epistle above conveniently forgets the attacks is France in the 40’s and 50’s…..And then Begin became leader of Israel – ex-terrorist, celebrated as a great warrior and freedom fighter….

      • thor42

        Oh, ok – Israel should surrender then.
        I was wrong. I’m sorry. 
        I must have been mistaken when I saw Israel give medical help every day to the Fakestinians, and they get rocketed for their trouble.
        Forgive me for my ignorance……  

        The Jews have been there for 3,000 years, but that doesn’t matter.
        The Muslims are always the “good guys”, eh, Neil. 
        They can never do anything wrong. 
        Israel should just put up with the hails of rockets onto its territory. If it retaliates, it’s always “Israel’s fault”, ay.

    • Mr_Blobby

      You make some good points. But what is the justification for, being our friends and then stealing passports from us, or should we just make them honorary citizens as a reward for there miss deeds.
      If noble prizes are a sign of success. How come every US president gets awarded one, the last one, just for getting elected? When they turn out to be the biggest war mongers around and never actually achieve anything.
      As for, what do you call it, the FAKESTINIAN problem. Once again all these Noble Nobel peace awards and still no peace. The reality is this has been going on for 2500 plus years, and no sign of it ending any generation soon.
      I would be advocating dropping several nuclear bombs on the problem, problem solved. No Israel, no Palestine, no religious sites to fight over. I don’t think that anyone else would have much of a problem with it, after the radiation dissipated.

    • Mr_Blobby

      Don’t forget our friends the French who bombed the greenies in our own Harbor. As for a crack down on the Green movement we could plow them into the ground so they can be at one with the dirt they love so much. The Americans wanted to drop nukes on North Korea during that conflict, stating that it was only 27 million people. With friends like ours, we have no need for enemies. Look at Africa. No if the earth opened up and that part of the Middle East dropped into it no one would miss them.

  • jay cee

    my understanding was that israel came about because european jews,fed up with the pogroms and persecution used the old testament to claim palestine as their homeland,

  • Kiwiinlondon

    It’s pretty well known that Somalis find it hard to settle in New Zealand.  A lot of the refugees that were accepted in the 90s left for Australia as soon as they could.  In general, immigrants everywhere whinge.  I was in London for five years and all the Kiwis and Aussies used to bitch about everything in the UK and stick together.  I was in Ireland for a year and it was the same.  And now I’m in China, I’m surrounded by Americans and Aussies that bitch about everything here too.  Human nature I suppose.  

    • honcho

      Also spent a fair bit of time abroad, and as you say, birds of a feather flock together. Thats not disputed.
      What this article represents though is a refugee extended family, who have been here since 2001 (11 years), are still taking heavily from our welfare system and are complaining about the state provided accomodation your taxes are paying for IN A CITY WHERE GOOD PEOPLE ARE STILL LIVING IN CAMPERS AND THE BACK OF VANS, yet they are working, working hard, and dont put their put their faces on the news.

      As a back story, my grandparents arrived to this country as refugees from the formerly free Poland at the end of WW2, when they arrived here they lived out of a former prisoner of war jail in paihiatua. They never complained, they didnt want for anything from this country, they worked hard and made the most of the same opportunities that are available to all New Zealanders, and from that they have had much the same life as any other New Zealander of the day having arrived here with nothing more then the clothes they were wearing and each other, my family has had a good life, and my grandparents are to this day extremely grateful of the fresh start the people of New Zealanders granted them.

    Am not sure you could could include Peter Medawar in your Muslim Nobel prizewinners.
    Whilst he was born in Brazil to Lebanese father and a Brazilian mother. He was registered at birth as British.
    He was educated at Marlborough College (an English private School) and Magdalen College Oxford.
    Nowhere is he designated as a Muslim. Nor was he seen in any way in his work or his private life to have been a Muslim.
    My wife worked for him at UCL, during his work for which he was granted a Nobel prize.
