The usual suspects throw hissy fits over “harsh sentencing” of Islamic terrorists:

Can we really blame them? They are only following their religion, they are good muslims and good muslims are, by nature, terrorists. Their religion Â commands them to ‘strike terrror in the hearts of the unbelievers’- and since all religions are equally bad, who are we to judge?
But wait, Â isn’t jihad Â nothing but inner struggle? Perhaps they were just misunderstanding their peaceful religion….? Just like this guy here:

A sequel to this: Aussie Police: “Jihad is an ongoing problem”
SYDNEY Muslims are ”angry and frustrated” at the severity of the sentences meted out to five men convicted of terrorism offences, say community elders who worry that the strict penalties will serve to radicalise more young Islamic men.
”The penalties, while they are warranted, they seem really harsh,” said the president of the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils, Ikebal Patel. ”There is a real possibility that this might alienate some members of the Muslim community … there’s a lot of frustration and anger.”
On Monday Justice Anthony Whealy of the Supreme Court sentenced the five men from Sydney’s west to jail terms of up to to 28 years.
Justice Whealy admitted there was insufficient evidence the men intended to kill, comments seized upon by Keysar Trad, chairman of the Islamic Friendship Polygamy Association of Australia.
”Even if they had talked about things like this,” Mr Trad said, ”it is very likely that there would have been a very large number of points along the way where they would have reconsidered because they didn’t want to kill anybody.”
Mr Trad added: ”It seems our standard has changed from proving a crime beyond reasonable doubt to the possibility that they might have intended to commit a crime.”
But what of the stockpile of weapons, ammunition and potential explosives?
”That doesn’t translate into a wilful intent to commit an act of terrorism,” he said.
Sheikh Khalil Chami of the Islamic Welfare Centre in Lakemba (also a promoter of polygamy) regularly visited the convicted terrorist conspirators, who range in age from 25 to 44, in jail. He is certain they were radicalised in Sydney.
$10m of taxpayers money to try terrorists
The Opposition condemned the spending, and said “thousands” of Australians were denied any legal assistance – let alone one million dollars. At a parliamentary committee hearing, the Government revealed the accused terrorists were given $10.1 million in legal aid. The Daily Telegraph seems to have the link removed.
