A more restrictive immigration program would not have exposed us toÂ the utterly avoidable danger spelled out in ASIO’s latest report:
This year ASIO:Â
investigated several hundred mostly Australia-based individuals who are advocates of a violent Islamist ideology;managed the security threat posed by individuals working with al-Qa‘ida affiliated groups…
Throughout 2012–13, Australia’s security environment continued to evolve, with the terrorism threat posed by traditional extremist networks and groups being compounded by the threat from self-radicalising lone actors..
In Australia, there are individuals and small groups who believe an attack here is justified. Issues such as Australia’s military deployments over the last decade, the Syrian conflict, or a belief that the ideals
of Australia are in direct conflict with their extreme interpretation of Islam, fuel the radical views of this cohort….
The Syrian conflict has resonated strongly in Australia and is likely to have a lasting impact on Australia’s security environment for the foreseeable future.
”Several hundred” advocates of “a violent Islamist ideology”? Most of them in Australia?
Not exactly the “tiny minority” that apologists claim. Who the hell let them in?

He was one of the Muslims who rioted in Sydney against an American YouTube film Innocence of Muslims:
HE has no trouble smashing police car windscreens with milk crates but it seems Muslim rioter Omar Halaby is not fit to work, receiving a $200-a-fortnight disability support pension.
The 19-year-old from Padstow last week escaped with a good-behaviour bond for his role in September’s violent Muslim protest in the CBD – partly because of remorse, his previous clean record and health issues he suffers that include sporting injuries and literacy problems…
In documents tendered to the Downing Centre Local Court, Legal Aid lawyer Sophie Edin said Halaby suffered from “certain disabilities” which had seen him claim the pension for the past three years…
How disabled was he really?
While the taxpayer supports accused rioter Omar Halaby, he spruiks about terrorism and illegal drugs on his Facebook page – and evenÂ does the odd day’s work on a construction site, despite receiving a disability pension.
Halaby, 19, of Padstow, pleaded guilty to using offensive language and resisting arrest over an incident on the corner of Bryant St and Gibson Ave in Padstow on September 21.
A familiar story of a thug using Islam to excuse himself:
During the car stop last month he was a passenger in a BMW and shouted out of the car window “f . . . off dog c . . . .” to police officers involved in another incident, police alleged. When the car was stopped Halaby continued his tirade, refusing to get out of the car. “Make me. I’m f . . . . . . not getting out of the car. Youse don’t have any intell to pull this car over,” he is alleged to have said.
He refused to give officers his name or any details 10 times and one officer knocked away a Coca-Cola can Halaby was crushing in his hand, with his chest puffed out in an “aggressive stance”, fearing it could be used as a weapon.
At Bankstown Police Station he refused to be fingerprinted by a female officer. “Don’t f . . . . . . touch me, my religion says women aren’t allowed to touch me, don’t touch me you f . . . . . . bitches,” he is alleged to have said.
What family, what culture, produced such a person?
