One Nation senator condemned for warning schoolchildren may become Islamist terrorists

A One Nation senator is writing to school principals warning them their children risk turning into “terror-endorsing Islamists” whose religion compels them to kill westerners.

The letters – sent on Senate letterhead with no mention of One Nation – have drawn immediate condemnation for inciting hatred, creating division and undermining the work of counter-terrorism and deradicalisation programs.

A leading security and intelligence expert, John Blaxland, has warned it simply plays into the hands of terrorist groups such as Islamic State.

And your point is?
