Muslim communities have not yet received any funds from the Abbott government to combat the lure of Islamic State recruiters, and neither the government nor community leaders can say how that money will be spent.
The failure has led to frustration with the Prime Minister Tony Abbott and his ministers who say the Muslim community were not doing enough to combat radicalisation of young people.
On Monday night, Trade Minister Andrew Robb said the leadership of the Muslim community, “the imams in particular … should be doing a lot more to look after their community”.
The imams are the recruiters, isn’t that obvious? (SY)
“You’ve got the problem. It’s principally your problem. You’ve got to show the leadership and we’ve got to do whatever we can to help you in that regard,” Mr Robb said.

“Experts” tell U.N. council – Feeling left out drives youth to Islamic State
By Michelle Nichols
(Reuters) – Most European youth Mohammedan ingrates who travel to Iraq and Syria to fight with Islamic State militants do so because they do not feel at home in Europe, academics told a United Nations Security Council meeting chaired Thursday by Jordan’s 20-year-old crown prince. …

Mama said, “They both are religious and frequently attended the mosque”. Nuf said. That’s the source of the problem, right there. One hopes that local Law Enforcement – if they haven’t done so already – will find out which mosque, exactly, these two ‘boys’ attended so dutifully, and take a pressing interest in it. I would suggest a surprise raid-and-search, with overwhelming force, taking along sniffer dogs trained in the art of detecting drugs, explosives, and…cadavers. Raid the place during morning or evening ‘prayers’, detain and strip-search *everybody* on the premises – make sure the dogs give them a going-over – and search the place from attic to basement. Army sappers to come along, with a view to identifying tunnel entrances and/ or hidden rooms and sub-basements/ false floors/ false ceilings/ hidden safes, etc. Turn it upside down and shake it – figuratively speaking – and see what falls out of the pockets. Find *anything* illegal – unregistered weapons, explosives, drugs, fake passports or other suspect documents, unexplained stashes of cash, beheading videos, rape videos, etc – on either the premises or the ‘worshippers’….shut the damn thing down and, once the evidence has all been gathered, raze it to the ground. Then let the deportations begin… Christina McIntosh
When halal organisations try to diffuse any suggestion of funding terrorism they like to point out that the money goes to Islamic mosques, Islamic schools and Islamic charities. So Cadbury, Nestle, Bega, Sanitarium, Byron Bay Cookies and hundreds more should feel really good about themselves because they are supporting the Islamic community in Australia. And you should too, right?
So let’s have a look at how some of these Islamic mosques, schools and charities are going here in Australia:
Defiant Boston Marathon murderer gives finger to his jailers What no one understands is that there is no chance that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will ever be repentant, no matter how many stories of ruined lives that he hears. This is because he believes that in his murders he did a righteous deed before Allah, who commands Muslims to kill Infidels in his cause. To be repentant, he would have to cease being a Muslim, because it is his Islamic faith that makes him think he did the right thing at the Boston Marathon. But because no one wants to face the reality that Islam had anything to do with his murders, no one can acknowledge that fact.
“Photo shows defiant Tsarnaev as feds argue for death penalty,” by Bob Fredericks, New York Post, thanks to Jihad Watch:
An unrepentant Dzhokhar Tsarnaev defiantly flipped the bird at a jailhouse surveillance camera in what prosecutors called a “message” to America just three months after he and his brother launched a deadly terror attack at the 2013 Boston Marathon.
Things immediately got tense when Shibly seemingly took offense to Hannity labeling CAIR as a “controversial” organization and asking about the organization’s ties to radical elements in the Islamic community.
“Let’s not change the subject here,” Shibly told Hannity.
“I can ask any question I want, this is my show,” Hannity shot back.
After Shibly condemned the Islamic State as an “extremist violent gang of monsters,” Hannity suddenly shifted the conversation to Hamas.
“What do you think about Hamas? Their charter calls for the destruction of Israel. Is Hamas a terrorist organization?” the Fox News host asked.
“Why are you changing — Sean, Sean,” Shibly responded.
“I just asked you a question. Is Hamas a terrorist organization?” Hannity asked again.
“Every Muslim you bring, every Muslim you bring you change the topic. Invite an expert on terrorism. I am here as a representative of this family,” Shibly said.
CAIR is a “family?” I got it: a crime family, of course! (SY)
Hannity wasn’t satisfied.
“Hamas’ charter calls for the destruction of Israel. Is that a terrorist organization?” he asked.
“But what does that have to do? I’m so confused,” Shibly said.
“Are you confused?” Hannity shot back. “Let me say the question slowly so you will understand it. Hamas’ charter calls for the destruction of Israel and the killing of Jews. Are they a terrorist organization?”
“Yeah, they are designated as a terrorist organization by the State Department,” Shibly answered.
“And you agree with that?” Hannity pressed.
“Yeah, but that’s not why were are here. I am a little confused why — I mean, shame on you! Same on you for just asking every Muslim what he thinks of terrorist organizations,” Shibly said before Hannity promptly concluded the interview.
A controversial Islamic centre attended by an Islamic State fighter and several suspected terrorists in Springvale South has closed down …
“We believe that given the constant harassment, pressure and false accusations levelled against the centre — particularly by media and politicians — this is the best course of action,” the centre said in a statement.
The statement said its members and the “broader Muslim community” was “often implicated in these insidious campaigns”.
PARIS An Islamic extremist with devout Muslim with an arsenal of loaded guns was prevented from opening fire on churchgoers only because he accidentally shot himself in the leg, French officials said Wednesday.
The 24-year-old computer science student, who was also suspected in the death of a young woman whose body was found on Sunday shortly before his arrest, had been flagged as a risk for intent to travel to Syria but there had been no specific reason to open a judicial investigation, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said Wednesday.
Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins said the suspect – an Algerian who had lived in France for several years – was arrested in Paris Sunday after he apparently shot himself by accident and called for an ambulance.
He was waiting outside his apartment building for first aid when police arrived. They followed a trail of blood to his car, which contained loaded guns, and notes about potential targets.
