“She will be slaughter and killed.”

That quote can be attributed to the family of a 10 year old Lebanese girl who, against her wishes, was flown out to Australia to be the child bride of a married, violent, drunk man decades her senior.

Had she flown back to her family as she desired?

Her family’s response:

“By God, by God I will kill you at the airport and I will bury you in the grave. O you dog.”

In fact, hundreds of girls have been flown out from the middle east and south east Asia for purposes of marriage to older Muslim men… all on special visas granted by the Gillard government.

This problem can only be further exacerbated by Australia’s weak boat people policy introduced by the Rudd government, and continued by the Gillard government.

Julia Gillard: the PM of choice for people smugglers and pedophiles alike.


The Australian way is so much better.

    Well if the media know about this and are not saying anything they should all hang their heads in shame, a 10 year old is still very much a child and to silently condone this behaviour is a disgrace.

    The reason I say this is because just about everything that Julia does seems to get the nod of approval from some in the media, no questions asked. Just look at that twit Laurie Oakes.

        Someone else disagrees with Mr Oakes:


        • At his closing news conference, U.S. President Barack Obama joked he had now learned a lot about the European Union’s “laborious” process of decision-making.


          How very diplomatic.

    This is such a sad story, BB. As the father of a daughter (my gorgeous little girl), I can not fathom the thinking of the parents of these children; allowing their child to be treated in this way. Perhaps it is a cultural thing, perhaps they thought their child will be able to establish a better life for herself in the longer term. I don’t know.

    At the end of the day, I worry about the little girls who are being treated as commodities, trading their life experience for whatever reason seems absurd to me. Our government is condoning abuse of these children. Personally, I’d be happier to bring the girls over and then tell the men who want them for marriage to go **** themselves.

    Arranged marriage’s have been frowned upon for decades in this Country. So much for ‘Women’s Liberation’ of the ’70’s. Where are the sisters now?

    I often wonder why it is a fact, the oldest inhabited parts of the World (Africa, Europe, China) are so harsh on their people and seem (to me) so uncivilised. Sure there are problems in every Nation, but you look at places like Australia, Canada and the US (Western Societies) who strive for equality and rights for women; we are still not there yet.

    We have come along way. I remember going to pick up my Grandad, sitting in the car outside the pub with my Nanna when I was little, because women and children were not allowed to go inside the pub where the men were (Unless they worked for the publican, as a bar-maid). Nanna would go and knock on the door and say; “I’m here for Kevin”. The bloke at the door would say; “No worries, Doll (Dorothy), I let ‘im know you’re here”.

    I remember women being restricted from certain employment opportunities and arranged family marriage’s within ethnic or religious communities. By the 80’s, I thought this was a thing of the past in our neck of the woods. Apparently, not? Girls at school were always my equals, that is the way it should be. In fact, I think Girls are smarter than us blokes in so many ways. Yet, still, in some circles; it is acceptable to abuse them because they are female.

    This is a fine example of how culture can erode the rights of some people within other cultures. Multiculturalism within one geographical confine is dangerous because it can undermine the law of the land. It would be nice if ‘Big Government’ butted out of peoples personal lives; so long as they do not allow abuse in any form, such as we see in this case. Every person has the right, as a human being, to choose their partner for life and mateship.

    I suppose it would be naive of me to think it does not still happen here. It obviously does. I know it does! It does not mean I will accept it, nor should women in this Nation, nor should any Man. (And we currently have an ‘independent thinking’, unmarried PM residing over it all. Go, figure?)

    • Beautifully put. One doubts even the over 18s girls women have much say in the matter, and I’m not here to crusade against the centuries-old custom of arranged marriages – of women.

      But girls?

      Indeed: where are the sisters now?
