There appears to be aÂ Â population explosionÂ in Australian prisons:
Twenty-one violent jihadists have been convicted and jailed over the past six years in a series of court cases which put the new home-grown brand of Australian terrorism on display.

Then there are establishment Muslims like Sheik Fehmi who Â worry that these jihadists gave the game away……
Sadly, the Australian government promotes the idea of Â a moderate Islam, something that only exists in the minds of utopians, climate changers and wakademics.

Australia needs moreÂ warming propagandists:
Andrew BoltÂ â€“ Monday, February 06, 12
A study of members of jihadist terror groups in Australia draws a strong link with our immigration policies:
His colleague at the university’s global terrorism research centre, Andrew Zammit, has found that six in 10 of those who have faced terrorism charges in Australia have been Muslims of Lebanese descent, a phenomenon unique to this country.Â
Of 33 alleged jihadists in Australia since the September 11 attacks in the US, 20 were of Lebanese descent, while at least 16 Australians have been arrested in Lebanon over alleged terrorist activity, he found.
Violent jihad attempts have rarely emanated from Lebanese migrant communities in Europe and the US, even though they are much larger than Australia’s, Mr Zammit said.
‘’One explanation could be the social and economic disadvantage faced by Lebanese-Australian Muslims but that wouldn’t explain why a specific few dozen people turn to terrorism when tens of thousands in similar circumstances do not,’’ he said. ‘’Keep in mind that this is a small sample size and another set of arrests could significantly change the figures.’’
Another terrorism analyst, Sam Mullins, a research fellow at Wollongong University’s centre for transnational crime prevention, said that the preponderance of terrorists of Lebanese heritage reflected Australia’s immigration history.
Is it wise to bring in many people from a group likely to face “disadvantage” here, through some cultural or educational incompatibility, if a dangerous minority then turn to violence?
Is it wise to bring in many people of an ethnic group of which a significant minority has some as yet undiagnosed predisposition to turn to jihadism here?
