Australia: 230 suspected jihadis prevented from flying to Middle East in past month

In the past month 230 people were prevented from leaving Australia out of fears of joining radical jihadi groups in the Middle East such as Islamic State, according to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

In an address to parliament, Abbott said that security forces stopped 86,000 people for questioning at various airports around the country.

  • Why in the hell do they get stopped leaving for the Middle East?

    Let the idiots go. And stop them from returning.

    • I know, I just don’t get it.

        They should even fly them there and give them para-trouper equipment with faulty parachutes.

      Exactly. In fact, they should be encouraged to go–and then have their families shipped out to join them. No possibility of return.

      Oh, and thanks so much BCF for ruining my fond childhood memories of Skippy the Kangaroo! 🙂

    Bob Smith & BCF – I read that the United Nations of Islam got western governments to agree to stopping jihadi lunatics from leaving their respective countries. So – if they can’t go abroad to kill, then then are given the opportunity to hit us at home. The West has lost its collective mind. It should tell the UN to f off.

    Why is it that the people that run every single western democracy in the world are complete fucking idiots? Oh yes I remember now….we keep electing them.

    I used to wonder what ME Muslims were doing in Australia (of all places!!!) until I happened to watch a documentary on sheep herding . .

        (Y)ewe reap what you sow. The Aussies are doing a booming business sending top-quality live sheep to the Middle East and I wouldn’t be surprised if there were lots of foreign middle men taking care of business. Stop the sheep business and you stop a lot of things.

    Let them go so we don’t pay for them anymore.
