THE Tamil boatpeople now in Indonesia act as if Australia has an unquestionable obligation to accept them. Perhaps they are right.

The Howard government did not proscribe the Tamil Tigers in Australia, although some 30 countries including Britain, the US, the EU and Canada did. As a result, the Tigers freely channelled huge sums of money for the terrorist war in Sri Lanka from Australian soil. Sri Lanka was virtually destroyed and when the Tigers were finally defeated, they left some 300,000 people displaced from their homes. It’s known that there are Tamil Tiger terrorists among the boatpeople and they too will enter Australia with the rest. It’s therefore incumbent upon the Rudd government to proscribe the Tamil Tigers, before they re-group and make Australia their launching pad for terror.
