Australia has been “under attack” from a group of Muslim men wanting “to kill as many unbelievers as they can” for about 15 years, a Supreme Court judge has said.
The families of some of the victims of an Islamic State group that beheaded hostages have said two captured fighters should face trial.
British fighters Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh were captured by Syrian Kurdish forces.
Bethany Haines – whose father David, a British aid worker, was beheaded by the cell – said she hoped they die a “slow, painful death”.
Kotey and Elsheikh were two of four UK IS members known as “the Beatles”.
“They should be locked up and throw away the key,” Ms Haines said.
Should there be a trial, she said she would attend and “look them in the eye and let them know I am who I am and they have certainly destroyed a big part of my life. Hopefully there will be some justice.”
Diane Foley – whose son James, an American journalist, was beheaded by the cell – said she wanted the two men to face life imprisonment.
Certainly, Europe’s current state of decline owes much to the widely recognized fact that Muslims are the first newcomers to Europe who, over several generations, are resistant to integrating into the societies of which they now form a part. This rejection of Europe’s humanitarian, Judeo-Christian values applies, not just to the successive waves of refugees and economic migrants who have washed up on the shores of Greece, Italy and Spain since the start of the Syrian civil war, but to generations of Pakistanis and Bangladeshis in the UK, North Africans in France, and Turkish “guest workers” in Germany

- This approach, giving social-services, is based on the belief — oft-refuted — that Muslim extremists (both Muslims-by-birth and converts) have suffered from deprivation. It also greatly rests on the naïve assumption that rewarding them with benefits — for which genuinely deprived citizens generally need to wait in line — will turn them into grateful patriots.
- The British government has shown itself incapable of enforcing its own laws when it comes to its Muslim citizens or new immigrants. Rather than stand up to our enemies, both external and internal, are we so afraid of being called “Islamophobes” that we will sacrifice even our own cultural, political, and religious strengths and aspirations?
