>:( PLEASE LIKE OUR PAGE >:( > > > > > Aussie Infidels < < < < < FORMER gang leader Vince Focarelli, who has converted to islam, and now calls himself Imran Salaam, has survived five assassination attempts, is facing deportation from Australia.
Originally from Italy, the controversial ex-bikie boss turned restaurateur has been served a “notice of intent’’ to cancel his visa because of his shocking criminal past.
Focarelli has just 28 days in which to file a submission to the Immigration Department “justifying’’ why he should be allowed to remain on Australian soil.
Focarelli, who was a key figure in more than a decade of gang-related violence in Adelaide, is the 42nd South Australian to be targeted under the strengthened provisions of the Act.
Calling himself Imran Salaam, Focarelli is the second high-profile Adelaide bikie gang figure to be targeted under the measure, with Mongols treasurer Andrew Peter Stevens still fighting his deportation through the courts.
Stevens was forcibly removed from his home and flown to the Christmas Island detention centre last June, along with another lesser-known Adelaide gang figure, ex-Comanchero Paul Burgess.
In 2014, Albanian organised crime figure Leonard Gjeka — who ironically was the gunman in one of the failed assassination attempts on Focarelli — was also deported from Adelaide under Section 501.
His submission will be included in a report to federal Immigration and Border Protection Minister Peter Dutton, who will then make the final decision. Under Section 501 of the Immigration Act, individuals’ visas can be cancelled on character grounds if the individuals “are or have been a member of a group or organisation or had or have an association with a person, group or organisation that the minister reasonably suspects of being involved in criminal conduct”.
Our heart is too big! Like, waaaaay too big! Sammy here, piping in for Connie, who is a bit crook at the mo but will be back with us really soon. Connie's legacy is going to be the biggest love heart the world has ever seen, and it's going to be made up of 162.65kms of five cent coins (so far), laid out in a HUGE heart! My sister is going to claim the world record for longest line of coins but here's the kicker - each and every five cent coin laid will go DIRECTLY AND IN FULL to our country's finest scientists so that they can vanquish cancer for us.
So many people have donated a metre for a cancery loved one ($2.90) that we keep having to find a bigger location! Anyhoo, the upshot is that there's no way humanly possible for us to lay 10 million coins by this Valentine's Day, like we had planned. We have Questacon's best science minds, designers, engineers and maths brains on the job, and they’ve also organised for our heart to be photographed FROM SPACE! And, the Royal Australian Mint are ready to start pressing coins!
I can't tell you when yet and I can't tell you where yet, but once I've spoken with a few very important people I shall have further news.
You can make our heart even bigger right here. www.loveyoursister.ecwid.com
But please don't let Social Medias Love announcements disappoint your own personal relationships.
Comparing your relationship to the snippet of someone else's that they allow the public to see will only set you up with unrealistic expectations.
I recently read a book that stated the euphoric stage of being overwhelmingly "in love" on average lasts 2 years, everything outside of that requires work. Real love is the day to day grind. The sharing of your life. The small seemingly insignificant gestures of consideration.
Once my husband got life insurance.. something I had never considered... but the more I thought about it the more romantic I found it, I was blow away that he loved us so much that he wanted to make sure we'd be ok even if he was dead.
That is our new romance. The romance of two people who don't have time for roses, candles or head jobs, but deeply care about each other's future.
When I stopped comparing us to everyone else I realised that even though I'd be a million bucks richer is he was... I'm still glad he's not dead.
And that is our love.
Don't let Valentine's Day or Social Media or love songs tell you what love looks like.
Update: 7/2/17 - 11pm Fantastic news !!!! - PEOPLE POWER
The Casey council have decided to abandon the acquisition of widower 78yr old John Foy's property
Thankyou to everyone that shared the posts, contacted the council, signed petitions, went to the council meeting and spoke up for a fellow Australian, the Australian spirit is alive especially after witnessing the support from everyone, John Foy can now enjoy his retirement and his home
Here is Casey councils contact details so you can tell them what you think, the council is having another meeting Tues 7/2/17
“They just want to come in and railroad me off the land with no questions asked.”
Mr Foy said the council’s plans would flatten trees and wreck the habitat-rich wetland and garden he created over the past 30 years. He would refuse to deal with Casey because of the “way they’ve dealt with me” – including being surprised by the council’s plans to take his entire property days before Mr Tsotsoros’s hearing.
Casey council is a step closer to compulsorily acquiring a 78-year-old man’s 34-acre home in Narre Warren North after its proposal was backed by a Planning Panels Victoria report. Panel chairman Con Tsotsoros stated that Casey’s proposed public acquisition of John Foy’s house, heavily vegetated lake, gardens and paddocks was “appropriate and justified” in light of the need for four soccer pitches and a pavilion at 191-195 Belgrave-Hallam Road. Casey councillors, on the back of the panel’s recommendation, are expected to vote on the public acquisition overlay on 7 February.
An incident occurred in a supermarket recently when the following was witnessed: A Muslim woman dressed in a Burkha (a black gown & face mask) was standing with her shopping in a queue at the checkout. When it was her turn to be served , and as she reached the cashier,she made a loud remark about the Australian Flag lapel pin which the female cashier was wearing on her blouse. The cashier reach......ed up and touched the pin and said, 'Yes , I always wear it proudly. My son serves abroad with the forces and I wear it for him. The Muslim woman then asked the cashier when she was going to stop bombing and killing her countrymen explaining that she was an Iraqi. At that point an elderly gentleman standing in the queue stepped forward and interrupted with a calm and gentle voice, and said to the Iraqi woman: 'Excuse me , but hundreds of thousands of Australian men and women , just like this ladies son have fought and sacrificed their lives so that people just like YOU can stand here in Australia , which is MY country , and allow you to blatantly accuse an innocent check-out cashier of bombing YOUR countrymen. It is my belief that if you were allowed to be as outspoken as that in Iraq , which you claim to be YOUR country , then we wouldn't need to be fighting there today. However - now that you have learned how to speak out and criticise the Australian people who have afforded you the protection of MY country , I will gladly pay the cost of a ticket to help you pay your way back to Iraq. When you get there , and if you manage to survive for being as outspoken as what you are here in Australia , then you should be able to help straighten out the mess which YOUR Iraqi countrymen have got you into in the first place , which appears to be the reason that you have come to MY country to avoid.' Apparently the queue cheered and applauded. ...IF YOU AGREE... Pass this on to all of your proud Australian & other worldly friends.. I just did............!!! It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice. It's also nice to be AUSTRALIAN!! Like our page > Aussie Infidels
