We gotta keep these people out!

Why take a chance?

“… at least 60 people will be coming back from Syria, from the Syrian civil war. The people who will come back will be more sophisticated, they will have more information and expertise about ammunition, about bombs, and the rest of it.”–Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton

‘Tip of the iceberg’: Warning of ‘more sophisticated’ terrorists

“Terror expert” warns next wave of terrorists “more sophisticated”, they will have more information and expertise about ammunition, about bombs, and the rest of it.”

A terror expert has warned Australia could face more dangerous plots in the wake of three men being charged being charged with allegedly planning an ISIS-inspired terror attack.

Brothers Ertunc and Samed Eriklioglu and another man, Hanifi Halis, were arrested in Melbourne yesterday.

It is alleged the men had recently made moves to access a high-powered rifle, and had been communicating on an encrypted messaging app similar to WhatsApp.

Professor Siracusa warned that more dangerous attacks could be coming.

The Australian government is considering stripping “extremists” of their Australian citizenship if they’re dual citizens or entitled to foreign citizenship by descent.

It’s been revealed the majority of the 400 individuals monitored by ASIO are either dual citizens or entitled to acquire foreign citizenship.

Currently these jihadis would only have their Australian passport cancelled so they can’t leave the country, but many have argued that they should be allowed to depart and then not let back in.

The plan is being discussed, but some MPs have expressed concern at the prospect of leaving an Australian citizen stateless.

Richard Ferguson The Australian November 22, 2018

Scott Morrison will push for anyone convicted of a terrorism offence to be stripped of citizenship no matter how long they have been sentenced. The Prime Minister will introduce legislation in the next sitting fortnight of parliament to remove citizenship on any terrorism offence, as well as new temporary exclusion orders for overseas fighters.

Scott Morrison has refused to sign up to the United Nations migration pact, saying it would compromise Australia’s national interests and border security. In a statement issued this morning, Mr Morrison said the government had already achieved the goals the deal set out. And, he said, it failed to distinguish between illegal migrants, and those who arrived “the right way”. Australia now joins the United States and others, in rejecting the UN pact.

“When we are asked to sign up to international agreements that we believe will compromise our successful way of doing things, we will pass,” Mr Morrison said in a joint statement with Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton, and Foreign Minister, Marise Payne.

“We believe that the compact is inconsistent with our well-established policies and not in Australia’s interests.

“We do not believe that adopting this agreement will add anything to enhancing our capacity to control our borders and manage our successful migration program.”

He said it was promoted as a way to ensure safe, orderly, and regular migration.

“We already achieve all of those goals,” the statement said.

“The compact fails to adequately distinguish between people who enter Australia illegally and those who come to Australia the right way, particularly with respect to the provision of welfare and other benefits.

“The compact would risk encouraging illegal entry and reverse Australia’s hard-won successes in combating the people smuggling trade.

“We will continue to make decisions in Australia’s best interests.”

Stripped of citizenship: PM unveils tough new terror laws

Richard Ferguson The Australian November 22, 2018

Scott Morrison will push for anyone convicted of a terrorism offence to be stripped of citizenship no matter how long they have been sentenced. The Prime Minister will introduce legislation in the next sitting fortnight of parliament to remove citizenship on any terrorism offence, as well as new temporary exclusion orders for overseas fighters.

“There will be no condition on the length of sentence, they would only need to be convicted of a terrorist offence,” he told reporters in Sydney.

“It currently requires near the a sentence of imprisonment of six years. We will be removing that requirement, It will only be if they are convicted of a terrorist offence.

“The current wording of the law, we believe it is unrealistic and needs to reflect the genuine threat that has been posed by those engaged in this activity.”

Mr Morrison also confirmed reports today that, under proposed legislation, the Home Affairs Minister would be allowed to strip citizenship from anyone who could obtain citizenship from another country.

“The standard by which the minister will be determining issues of dual citizenship will be changed, to make sure the Minister will only need to be reasonably satisfied that a person would otherwise have another citizenship,” he said

“Which is a change from the standard existing today.”

Mr Morrison also announced that he would pursue temporary exclusion orders, similar, to Great Britain, which would impose conditions on overseas combatants returning to Australia from conflict zones like Syria.

One thought on “We gotta keep these people out!”

  1. I can remember Waleed Aly telling us it would be a “blessing” for us all to have these jihadi returnees with us. Waleed would have us believe they would talk others out of fighting for Isis.
