Here’s what constitutes as foreign aid when it comes to the Gillard government.
We are currently sending Indonesia $450 mil in foreign aid.
up another $500 mil for their schools.
Take that 450 and make it a billion by 2016.
And what do we get in return for our Jizya?
We get $470 mil spent by Indonesia on Russian war planes.
We get thousands of illegal boat arrivals that come from Indonesian ports.
And we get PM Gillard and Foreign Minister Rudd, busy trying to fuck each other, actually, effectively, lining their pockets and instead fucking Australia.
Under Islamic law, jizya or jizyah (Arabic: جزية ǧizyahIPA: [dʒizja]; Ottoman Turkish: cizye; both derived from Pahlavi and possibly from Aramaicgaziyat) is a per capitatax levied on a section of an Islamic state‘s non-Muslim citizens, who meet certain criteria. The tax is/was to be levied on able bodied adult males of military age and affording power, (but with specific exemptions, From the point of view of the Muslim rulers, jizya was a material proof of the non-Muslims’ acceptance of subjection to the state and its laws, “just as for the inhabitants it was a concrete continuation of the taxes paid to earlier regimes.” In return, non-Muslim citizens were permitted to practice their faith, to enjoy a measure of communal autonomy, to be entitled to Muslim state’s protection from outside aggression, to be exempted from military service and the zakat taxes obligatory upon Muslim citizens.
Our “aid” money is being spent on fighter jets. And not American fighter jets, but Russian fighter jets.
OK. OK. So in a sense, that’s a good thing. After all, they’re Russian fighter jets that would have their arse handed to them by an F22 or F35.
But that’s not the point is it, my darlings?
Our “foreign aid” is a crock and is effectively pumping up the Indonesian military, a military that is doing jack fuck all to help stop illegal immigration not into Indonesia – oh, no, no – but into Australia… via Indonesia.
And all Julia Gillard can do is tax the fuck out of us thanks to mega deficits created by the most wasteful ideas a government has ever sprogged, and all Kevin Rudd will do is come up with names like “spanky Banky“.
Actually, I’ll give him credit for that one coz the UN sucks even more (despite the fact that Kevni wants to suck it even harder – somehow – by leading it).
Yet meanwhile, Australia keeps getting its BBQd ring hole handed to it on a trashy made-in-Indonesia paper plate.
