Muslims ‘don’t trust’ multi-million dollar de-radicalisation helpline that has had just five calls in two months

A multi-million dollar deradicalisation helpline has taken only five phone calls in its first two months of operation.

Muslim community leaders say the service, launched in June by the New South Wales Minister for Counter Terrorism David Elliot, is viewed with suspicion.

They say the helpline’s association with the terror-related ministry means it will be not be trusted and is doomed to fail.

    Well, we people of higher-learning states to the North of New South Wales are unamused by the statistical bigotry.

    We fully realise that “de-radicalisatin” has no prospects of working. None whatsoever.

    Who made money off this boondoggle?
    A de-radicalization hotline?
    A hotline to keep fat people from eating too much would have a greater degree of success.
    Whomever got the grant for this project was some politician’s friend.

      Only a woman could have come up with such a bad idea.

    The only form of de-radicalization that is sure to work is deportation.
