According to this article successive Australian governments spent upwards of $56 million dollars for so-called “deradicalisation programs”, meaning sly taqiyya merchants like ‘Anne’ Aly & tosspots like “Deakin University terror expert Greg Barton ” are beneficiaries of fantasy based programs that rely on wishful thinking and hot air.
Foolish nonsense. Nothing but the complete eradication of Islam in Australia will keep us safe.
Ishaq Ul Matari, 20, arrested on Tuesday over an alleged Islamic State-inspired plot to attack police stations and churches in Sydney’s CBD was part of a deradicalisation program after being returned to Australia from Lebanon in June last year.

Police smash alleged terror plot in multiple raids
A young Sydney man who authorities attempted to deradicalise has been arrested over an alleged Islamic State-inspired plot to attack several targets including police stations, the US consulate, the NSW Supreme Court and churches in Sydney’s CBD.
Federal and NSW Counter-Terrorism Police swooped early on Tuesday morning after 20-year-old Ishaq Ul Matari, from Western Sydney, allegedly attempted to bring forward plans to travel to Afghanistan and pledge allegiance to the barbaric jihadis.
Ishaq Ul Matari, 20, was allegedly attempting to bring forward plans to travel to Afghanistan and pledge allegiance with Islamic State.
The Daily Telegraph can reveal Ul Matari was part of a deradicalisation program authorities are reluctant to talk about after being deported back to Australia from Lebanon in June last year.
Authorities allegedly monitored him using his computer to search the dark web for information about importing firearms or explosives into Australia. It is believed he wanted to carry out the high-profile attacks before leaving for Afghanistan. The Western Sydney University student had bought a ticket to Afghanistan and applied for a visa.
Police claim Ul Matari had also attempted to source a firearm in Afghanistan where he would fight for IS. Australian Federal Police said on Tuesday he had been under constant surveillance since arriving back in Australia.
“It will be alleged in court that the man had made early-stage preparations and had expressed an intention to carry out a terrorist attack in Australia. The man allegedly indicated a range of targets, which included prominent Sydney landmarks and locations, but had not selected a specific target or time to do,’’ police said.
Radwan Dakkak, a suspected terrorist was arrested in Toongabbie on Tuesday.
Teams of police spent most of on Tuesday searching six homes linked to the three men across Western Sydney in Greenacre, Toongabbie, Chester Hill, Ingleburn, Green Valley and Canada Bay as officers looked for weapons and explosives.
“Although we had no evidence anyone had acquired anything like that we had to make sure. We also took possession of a number of electronic devices,’’ a police source said.
Matari and an associate, Radwan Dakkak, 23, from Toongabbie, will face charges of being a member of a terrorist organisation — IS.
“It will be alleged in court that both men identified as members of Islamic State to other like-minded people. It will also be alleged the Toongabbie man was prominent in the global online extremist community,’’ police said.
Ahmed Teyba, 30, of Chester Hill, will be charged with obtaining a financial benefit by deception, namely fraudulently claiming Commonwealth unemployment benefits.
Police said it will be alleged in court that Dakkak was prominent in the global online extremist community. “The three men communicated on social media,’’ said NSW Police Counter Terrorism and Special Tactics Commander, Assistant Commissioner Mick Willing, who added they were using a number of different sites.
At Ul Matari’s house in Chiswick Rd, Greenacre, forensic police draped a tarpaulin across the front of the property as they rummaged through the small, cluttered townhouse.
A father living a few doors away, who said he had moved to Australia from Lebanon, was furious to hear the allegations against the arrested men. “We are all families here in this complex, we know each other,” he said. “We’re here in Australia to look after this country, not drag this country down.”

NSW and Australian Federal Police turned Dakkak’s Toongabbie home upside down after raiding the house at dawn on Tuesday. The property has garbage along the driveway, cars stretching out from the garage to the street and stagnant dirty water in the pool.
Graeme and Pat Banks have lived next door to the family for about 20 years, and Mr Banks said he had watched him grow up. “He was the one I spoke to the most out of the whole family and he was lovely,” he said.
Two other neighbours, who didn’t want to be identified, said they couldn’t believe Dakkak had been arrested but one said had transformed after going to Lakemba Mosque. “He was always the lovely one … he changed after he started going to the mosque,” one said.

SECRETIVE PROGRAM FAILS TEST
Western Sydney University student Ishaq Ul Matari had been targeted as part of the hush-hush Countering Violent Extremism program, The Daily Telegraph can reveal.
The Commonwealth has tipped in more than $53 million to counter violent extremism over the past six years but the battle to win back the hearts and minds of foreign fighters — or alleged wannabes like Ishaq Ul Matari — comes down to families, communities and religious groups.
No. It comes down to Islam. All such programs are an idiotic waste of time and money. We have to eradicate Islam from our midst.
But one of his mentors at the university, criminologist and former cop Michael Kennedy, on Tuesday, said if his involvement in the program was true “it was so subtle (Ul Matari) probably didn’t notice it”. Dr Kennedy said he had just tried to steer his “terrific” student Ul Matari down the right path and knew nothing about any official deradicalisation.
And Deakin University terror expert Greg Barton said it was no good going in all guns blazing, which is why details of the programs were kept fairly quiet.
“Deakin University terror expert Greg Barton” is a worthless POS who is a closet Moslem. Barton is as useless as a boil on the a$$ of a chimpansee when it comes to
fighting Islam ‘violent extremism’.
He said they had worked for some of the foreign fighters who had returned to Australia. “The fact it is not 100 per cent successful doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try,” he said.
None of it can ever be successful.
It is an idiotic concept to allow the disease to spread without going to the source.
He said the idea was to disengage them from their social networks and replace it with something positive. He said Victoria had a more structured program than NSW, where a police liaison person was likely to act like a case manager. “They try to involve family, friends and where it is appropriate religious teachers, putting together a team that can help,” Prof Barton said.
Humbug. ‘War is deceit’, said Muhammad.
Ul Matari was deported back to Australia from Lebanon in June last year.
There is also a National Disruption Group (NDG), led by the AFP, which co-ordinates federal departments and agencies as well as state and territory police to “co-ordinate operational disruption activities targeted at countering threats posed by so-called foreign fighters”.
The NDG’s Diversion Team is focused on alternatives to prosecution and ‘acts as the conduit’ between federal authorities and the state-led intervention programs.
With Home Affairs warning there are about 100 Australians still involved in the Syria and Iraq conflicts who may pose a threat when they return, Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton on Tuesday got the Coalition’s backing to introduce new national security laws to parliament to restrict which fighters are allowed home.
“We need to make sure that we’ve got every tool available to us to keep Australians safe,” Mr Dutton said.
Out with the trash. The only way, Mr Dutton.

JIHADIS FLEEING ISLAMIC STATE ‘A GLOBAL THREAT’
Thousands of jihadis fleeing Islamic State territories will continue to “pose a significant global threat for years to come”, a report by Australia’s national security watchdog warns.
The Senate report drafted by the Independent National Security Legislation Monitor last December warned many of the 7500 fighters from western countries were returning home.
More like 75.000
“ISIL’s loss of territory has also re-cast the threat picture associated with foreign fighters,” the report said. “Estimates vary but various figures suggest over 40,000 foreign fighters, including around 7500 from Western countries, joined the fight.”
