According to the department of foriegn affars, up to 25,000 Australians of Lebanese descent who hold Lebanese passports as well as Australian passports , live permanently or semi permanently in Lebanon.
The latest Middle East crises has flushed out a new class of duel nationality super snivelers who believe mere possession of an Australian passport guarantees them security in their 'Other Homeland'.
At citizen ceremonies these Lebanese migrants are informed they have the same rights and privileges as any other Australians(Which technically is a blatent lie told by successive Australian Govts) I refer to the medical gold card not available to British Vets who fought in the defence of Australia, myself being one)
These Aussies of Lebanese descent also have discovered the flaw in their citizenship status.
However, while this bunch of insufferable ingrates whinge and whine because of their present misfortune ; being stranded in Lebanon during the recent flare up of hostillities, it leaves me with little sympathy for them.
In most cases these duel Aus/Leb cits have for all intents and purposes left Australia for good and returned to their roots(their homeland) after securing their aged social security pension- superannuation and other retirement funds. so to live among their own kind but with a higher status and income, very clever you might say, and no skin off the Australian Govts nose, until now, when all they want is to be aussies once more, (Until the shooting stops)
I say leave these freeloading whingeing assholes in the rat holes the chose to live in after they discarded Australia as their new home, or at the least make them pay for their rescue and the privilege of becoming an aussie once more. Vest Daily gaggle.
