Headbangers vow to combat home-grown terrorism as they meet with George Brandis

“The issue here is not religion – the issue is extremism.”

By which Muselmaniacs mean Christian and Jewish ‘extremists’, of course. Asking the soldiers of allah to fight against  jihad is like trying to put a fire out with gasoline.

Islamic leaders say they will do what they can to stop young Australians heading overseas to fight alongside extremists, after meeting with Attorney-General George Brandis.

5566250-3x2-340x227Several clerics this morning met with Senator Brandis at Parliament House in Canberra to discuss the problem of so-called home-grown terrorism.

Senator Brandis says about 60 Australians are currently fighting in Iraq and Syria, with dozens more supporting them.

The Abbott Government says most do not want to return home, but claims those who do are likely to be up to “no good”.

Senator Brandis told the senior Islamic leaders that they are important partners and he wants them to use their moral authority to stop young Muslims joining ISIS, or other militant groups, in the Middle East.

“In your communities in particular you have a especially important role as moral leaders, as charismatic figures, as authority figures, as religious leaders,” he said.

“The issue here is not religion – the issue is extremism.”

I call it Islam. There is nothing more toxic and extreme than Islam. Now how do we get Brandis to understand that?

He confirmed security and intelligence agencies are still monitoring about 150 Australians here and abroad.

It comes as an Australian preacher who has emerged as one of the high-profile supporters of the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq claims he is heading to Syria.

Social media and internet pose problems for authorities

Right. So the answer is more censorship?

Senator Brandis describes social media and the internet as two of the Government’s biggest problems as it tries to combat home-grown terrorism.

The Coalition is introducing new legislation that will allow security and surveillance organisations to better track Australian jihadists and their associates online.

The Islamic leaders were briefed on the bills during the meeting.

Sheikh Mohamadu Saleem from the Australian National Imams Council says all Muslims are shocked that so many Australians are fighting overseas.

BS. They prayed for it in their mosques. They collected money and paid for their trips.

He says he wants to make sure the nation is protected from violent extremism.

“We really appreciate the fact that you have recognised the role of the imams in peace building in this country,” he said.

“And of course we have discussed various ways of de-radicalising our youth.

“And we have been of course instrument in the past encouraging youth to engage positively, rather than negatively, in Australia.”

Senator Brandis says the Government’s legislation will help save young men from “radical ideology”.

He expects the bills, which are largely based on the recommendations of a report from Parliament’s intelligence committee, to receive bipartisan support.

“We’ve had this bizarre situation up to now that two agencies, in particular ASIS and ASIO, may perhaps in a hypothetical case be working together but powers exercisable by one were not exercisable by the other, although it’s a joint operation,” he said.

“So the effect of the legislation will be to break down those silos which have inhibited operability.”

The Opposition has welcomed the meeting and says it will work productively with the Government.

But Labor’s immigration spokesman Richard Marles says Senator Brandis should not have been the minister leading the meeting.

“To have the Attorney-General, the man who led the charge to amend the Racial Discrimination Act, which can only lead to greater prejudice to communities such as the Islamic community in Australia … lead these discussions I think is extraordinary,” he said.

The Coalition says it will continue to consult with Islamic leaders as it introduces the laws.

  1. Firstly the Muhammadan Problem
    – Fix it elected Australian Politicians
    – Oh! your Dhimmis (Ooops – sorry about that – On to Plan B !).

    So! on to the elected Australian Politicians Problem
    – Incarcerate all Dhimmis(Assistors/Enablers/Traitors/Seditionists).
    – Expell ALL Muhammadans.
    – “Expell” ALL unwilling to go Muhammadans.
    – Bulldoze ALL islam’s “Mostgrotesques”.
    – Expell ALL survived their incarceration Dhimmis“.
    – “Expell” ALL unwilling to go Dhimmis who survived their incarceration.

    Now returning to the Muhammadan Problem” …. So Gone …. So ….
    Fixed
    All Gone
    So Simple
    Thats Gratifying!

    So Final.

  2. And “Finally” The Muhammadans have been Expelled and/or “Expelled”

    Something just to annoy the 5 Times A Day “Butt-Lifters”.
    But mainly because I just wanted to hear this particular track and have always loved and adored CeCe Peniston.
    I hope CeCe doesn’t mind my absolute adoration of her!
    – So Beautiful a person!

    Muhammadans should be so embarrassed and so ashamed to be seen in public subservience to (what)???? – not a Diety or a Prophet – but a Perpetrator and proponent of Criminal Acts – and a defiler of human dignity.

  3. Oh! No! – Islamic leaders say ….
    they will do what they can to stop young Australians heading overseas to fight alongside extremists“,
    after meeting with Attorney-General George Brandis.

    George Brandis really believes this load of crap ?????

    Islamic leaders really want to keep the jihadist in Australia – their next target.
