If these people have been allowed to return, they have been cleared by the govt. I also doubt that they will be allowed to do as they please, unchecked by anyone.
Just as an aside, jihad literally means struggle or strive. One engaged in jihad is a mujahid- mujahideen in plural form.
Because I struggle to understand this - something which seems very illogical - doesn't make me lacking in empathy or on my "high horse". ?!
Sorry if any of my comments came across as diminishing feelings of those who I disagree with. I was simply seeking to point out another side which maybe those so frightened of terrorism in Australia hadn't considered?
Not the frequency or likelihood of something occurring... Rather how **** scared you would be if you died a certain way.
With a car accident (touchwood) it would hopefully be over pretty quickly. Maybe not, but hopefully. Watching your colleague/counterpart being hacked to pieces knowing you were next... Being held hostage thinking the person had a bomb that could go off at any moment...Or being stuck up the top of a high rise building knowing there was no way out and deciding to jump. Basically think about which scenario would leave the biggest skiddie in your undies regardless of the likelihood of it occurring...... Then have a "that scenario is actually likely" message plastered all over the evening news. That's why some people are scared.
Sorry I can't stop giggling about the "skiddies in undies" comment!
To come back to the domestic violence example- one woman is killed each week. I believe there was even more this past year. Why is that not a national emergency? Why are laws not changing? With domestic violence, this is not a threat- this is literally already happening. Statistics show just how likely women are to face sexual and other types of violence and abuse. Yet nothing- no headlines, no reassurance from the minister for women, sympathetic language used in the media towards murderers and our country denying such abuse is torture on a world stage.
