“Today, I am announcing that the Government will look at new measures to strengthen immigration laws, as well as new options for dealing with Australian citizens who are involved in terrorism,” the PM said in an address made at the Australian Federal Police headquarters in Canberra.
“We cannot allow bad people to use our good nature against us.
“The Government will develop amendments to the Australian Citizenship Act so that we can revoke or suspend Australian citizenship in the case of dual nationals.
“It has long been the case that people who fight against Australia forfeit their citizenship.
“Australians who take up arms with terrorist groups, especially while Australian military personnel are engaged in Afghanistan and Iraq, have sided against their country and should be treated accordingly.
“For Australian nationals, we are examining suspending some of the privileges of citizenship for individuals involved in terrorism.
“Those could include restricting the ability to leave or return to Australia, and access to consular services overseas, as well as access to welfare payments.”
The PM also confirmed that the extremist group Hizb-ut-Tahrir would be outlawed.
“Organisations and individuals blatantly spreading discord and division — such as Hizb ut-Tahrir — should not do so with impunity,” he said.
“Today, I can confirm that the Government will be taking action against hate preachers.
“This includes enforcing our strengthened terrorism advocacy laws.
He should have stopped there.
There’s no point trying to go toe to toe with jihadists on social media sites. Better to hold those who operate the sites and accounts as well as the companies who host them accountable. Or more to the point, ban Muslim immigration, deport terror and sharia supporting Muslims, deny those who remain welfare, and cut the flow of foreign funds to and for mosques. Maybe then Australia has a chance of survival.
It includes new programs to challenge terrorist propaganda and to provide alternative online material based on Australian values.
“And it will include stronger prohibitions on vilifying, intimidating or inciting hatred.
As we’ve seen in the U.S. with rogue politicians and appointees, they will be bought off by Muslims or simply side with them and start using such laws against those who oppose sharia and Islam. Or they’ll use the laws for whatever purpose fits their agenda.
Releasing the findings of a review of the country’s national security architecture, Mr Abbott confirmed that ASIO was now monitoring 400 “high priority” national security cases with several thousand “leads” being investigated.
As revealed by The Daily Telegraph, Mr Abbott announced a new counterterrorism taskforce and co-ordinator to bring the various spy and policing agencies under one umbrella.
Sounds like the utter failure named DHS in the United States.
Mr Abbott confirmed that at least 110 Australians have travelled overseas to join the death cult in Iraq and Syria.
Tens of thousands more have joined or were born into the death cult. What will Abbott do about them?
“At least 20 of them, so far, are dead,” he said.
May the others meet allah soon too.
