Australian Leader Makes No Promises On Bringing Back Muslim Children Who Play With Severed Heads

Australia’s prime minister said Wednesday he felt for the five children of an Australian convicted terrorist in the Islamic State movement who became notorious last year for posing for photographs while clutching the severed heads of Syrian victims.

But Prime Minister Tony Abbott would make no promises that his government would help repatriate the young family from the Middle East following the father’s reported death, saying that keeping Australia safe was his first priority.

Reports that the children’s Australian father Khaled Sharrouf, 33, and his Australian friend Mohamed Elomar, 30, had been killed in airstrikes in the Islamic State-held city of Mosul in Iraq have intensified calls from relatives for Australian help to bring the family home.


The children were taught to play with severed heads as part of their instruction in Islam.

Australia owes them nothing.

Let Mother raise them herself in Islam’s paradise on earth.

    All that Australia owes them is a place on the no-fly list and revoked citizenship.

    • The family was a drain on social services before leaving, no reason for that to change if allowed back.

      I think in the interest of national security the Australian gov’t also owes them a 338 lapua round as well.

    I phoned my local politician at my concerns.
    I had made my stance.

    Khaled and Mohamed – typical Australian names.

    There is only one person who should be holding a severed head, and that would be your local coroner/medical examiner. Anyone else, sniper shot.

    If they come back to Australia the children will want the same toys they had in Syria.

    I wish Canada was just as strict. I would prefer if they were prevented from entering the country in the first place.
