(Pickering Post) As another boat loaded with 80 illegal immigrants arrives on Christmas Island, Indonesia’s Foreign Minister, Marty Natalegawa, says his country won’t accept violations of its borders under Abbott’s plan to turn back boats. He warns the move risks damage to bilateral relations. Really Marty?
Islamic arrogance has again reared its ugly head in what is approaching a long-overdue showdown with this nation and its corrupt practices.
