How far is Australia from a bomb attack on home soil?

In light of the Boston Marathon bombing, this news from Michael Smith doesn’t give The Great South Land much reason for optimism:

An accused Egyptian terrorist, a suspected Sri Lankan murderer and an Iranian wanted for drug trafficking have all arrived in Australia recently on asylum seeker boats.

The Weekend West can reveal the Egyptian man, in an Eastern States detention centre, is the subject of a high-level Interpol “red notice” for terrorism activities… The Sri Lankan man is accused of killing his girlfriend before fleeing to Australia on an asylum boat.

But wait, there’s more.

The claims against the men put Australian authorities in a difficult position. Under the United Nation’s refugee convention, police are severely restricted in how they deal with foreign law-enforcement agencies while an asylum seeker is making a claim for protection.

Should police do anything that could be argued to have put the asylum seeker at risk in their home country, it could strengthen their claim for protection in Australia.

Boat arrivals have rocketed in recent weeks. In fact, 2013 is shaping up as another bumper year for the people smugglers. Check out the spreadsheet here.

It’s only a matter of time until a bomb-maker steps off the boat.

But this is one time I’d be glad to be wrong.


  1. EVERYONE needs to stay alert these days!!

    • True. Boston is a long way from Perth; Geraldton is not.

  2. Sorry for the absence of comment, on your fine Blog, Sir Gregoryno6, but been rather tied up with A Chechen’isan disorder.

    Islamists are not fond of the English speakers, since they blame all of their 7th Century backwardness, on English speaking nations. Their vile cult, has nothing to do with it of course.

    Heads up, for Aussie’s is certainly a good and wise one.

    • Nothing to do with it at all!
      I’m about to post an item from FrontPage Magazine on that topic.

      • Look forward to it, mate.
