He has made it clear that these fools had no support from Islam in Australia, that they are a bunch of disgruntled indivduals that are taking it upon themselves to attempt to terrorize our population.
We must keep in mind that most of our immigrants come from countries that use these forms of resistence and attack as a matter of course, it is a cultural reflection on how to deal with those you think are your enemy/oppressors. So when confronted with constant racism and cultural attacks they react in the manner that is known to them.
The Shiek also made the point that what these people were attempting to do had no connection with the war in Iraq, but more with the way they perceive their community is treated here in Australia.
I believe we need to keep a constant dialogue happening with the youth of today because, as the Shiek said these ideas will not be only held by Muslim youth, disenfranchisement is being felt by youth generally and any gross restrictions of freedoms could see violence erupt from the most unlikely of groups within our society.
