How migrants stranded at sea off Indonesia resorted to ‘stabbing each other’ to survive

Migrants stranded at sea for four months off Indonesia resorted to stabbing, hanging each other and throwing passengers overboard in a desperate struggle for the last remaining food, according to those who finally made it to land.

Survivors from a boat that landed in Indonesia late last week have given horrific accounts of brutal clashes over the dwindling supplies.

Varying accounts said between seven and 100 people died during the fights, which apparently involved ethnic-based violence among migrants who were all from Burma and Bangladesh.

  • Is everyone sure they want these people in their country?

    I can understand desperate times breed desperate measures but most of these people already lived in societies where one could cut another’s throat for five bucks.

    Yes, that is a cold assessment.

      Apparently no one wants them.

      I fear we are going to see a lot of this sort of thing.

      • Muslim nations not wanting Muslims? How could that be?

      • What?

        What about the third pillar of charity or the Buddhist principle of giving?

          I’m pretty sure the Buddha taught lovingkindness but he also taught that if you grab a snake you must grab it by the neck and not the tail. Its called wise actions. These people in short are snakes.
          These mussies are suffering terribly but they cause untold misery where ever they go so it is not suprising they are shunned by everyone. Do you give someone a knife so he can kill you?? These muzzie, well all muzies, will kill non muzzies because the Big mo told them to in the Kurryan, you know Jihad, chop the neck …….In the long run this lack of sympathy for the muzzies may be there down fall for most people who are not liberals dont trust a muzzie- You have heard the old saying ‘ don’t trust a lying Arab (muslim)’
          So I should feel bad when I see these photoes but….I just cannot. I remember 9/11, 7/7, christians on beaches with no heads, the british soldier cut down in the street, 1400 children raped in rotherham alone and so on and on and on….
          As the buddha said, Hatred never ceased by hatred but by love, this is an eternal law. Well I dont hate these people I just dont want them in the west because they will destroy everything good about the west and create another muslim hellhole and for what??

          • They have no desire to reform themselves, their culture or anything else. Instead, they transform things into the failed environments from which they came. This makes taking in these illegal immigrants a bad idea all around. I am sorry that people suffer but experience has shown what can happen with decidedly unassimiable populations.

      I now doubt their ability to successfully assimilate.
      That’s one contest winner I don’t want walking around in Westren society.

    They aren’t even waiting to arrive first before resuming their old ethnic violence…

    Muslims stabbing and hanging each other? Well, I suppose the boat is a change of venue.

    • hktony

      Muzzies just cannot stop the death and violence. And the death and hanging. Do we ever hear anything nice coming out of islamic countries? New innovative technology, or medicine, or art, or anything?? kebabs, and other greasy food which hasnt changed for ever.

      They deserve each other.

    Prepare yourselves The wealthy, self righteous and comfortable like politicians, judges, lawyers and journalists will use their authority to force these people on us.

    Move into white, english speaking, westernized neighborhoods, do business only with white, english speaking people, don’t trust the police or courts and don’t trust large businesses.

    In short, act exactly the way the immigrants act if you want to protect your culture.
