Guardian writer demands: why won’t Julie Bishop protect our jihadis?
We shouldn’t be surprised that Australians volunteering to fight for a homicidal, racist, sexist, bigoted and simply bat-crazy terrorist group are actually not nice people:
Australian doctor turned Islamic State recruit Tareq Kamleh was not a “ladies’ man”, but a ”two-faced sexual predator who was completely confused about his identity”, according to those who worked with him while he was an intern at several South Australian hospitals in 2010…
Kamleh reportedly claimed to have had sex with a patient at the Mannum District Hospital and to have checked the medical records of a Royal Adelaide Hospital patient who was a former sex worker and intravenous drug user before meeting her for unprotected sex.
The Australian has been told concerns were raised with the hospital administration at Mannum, 85km east of Adelaide, but no action resulted.
On Friday, Kamleh, who grew up in Perth as part of a devout Muslim family, became the latest Australian to appear in an Islamic State propaganda video, calling himself Abu Yusuf al-Australi, cradling a newborn baby and urging Muslim medical professionals to join him in the Islamic State-run hospital in Raqqa in Syria.

Australiandoctor Tareq Kamleh who joined ISIS was a party boy who liked crude pranks
Kamleh graduated from the University of Adelaide as a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery in 2010. A former colleague … described him yesterday as a sexually manipulative “fraud”, a “sleazeball” and a “creep” who regularly drank to excess, had a strong interest in shooting, and had numerous sexual relationships…
What [Kamleh] does not list on his social media sites among photos of him surfing and hunting is a crude party trick — sneaking up behind seated women and placing his exposed penis on their shoulder.
Known as a drinking, promiscuous party boy during his time studying medicine and practising in Adelaide he is said to have showed no remorse for such actions, including one time which left a secretary in shock during an official function to farewell overseas doctors…
“That was typical of him — impulsive, reckless, immature, absorbed with himself and with a total lack of concern about social consequences for his actions.”
But some on the Left seem to operate on the principle that the enemy of my enemy is my friend – or at least deserving of the protection of the AbbottAbbottAbbott regime:
Please, won’t somebody think of the jihadis? The Guardian Australia’sKatherine Murphy on what Julie Bishop failed to do in Iran, Insiders, ABC television, yesterday:
The Foreign Minister … seems not to have sought any special protection for any Australian citizens who are in the field fighting for ISIS.
