I remember reading a report in regards to these returned jihadists. I believe the British did some research on the matter because they had a bit of an epidemic of young men running off to join terrorist cells.
Essentially they found that people who voluntarily return to their country after something like this do so in a state of disillusion - and they're damn relieved to be taken back. They've lived the 'excitement' and found it pretty crappy (duh) and were unlikely to hold the same extremist views that led to their joining the groups in the first place. I imagine that sort of experience on a young and stupid mind would be more than enough to knock some sense into them.
Sort of like all those gung ho soldiers heading off to war in 1914. They thought that'd be pretty cool too - until they were in the middle of it.

How much do you know about sharia law? I heard a guy on Ray Hadley who wanted to leave and go and fight with IS and he couldn't even explain what sharia law was. Many are brainwashed.

A sudden loss is a sudden loss, they should never be compared, it does not matter how a loved one died, you miss them the same.
DH works in an industry that has been actively attacked around the world by terrorists. The buildings he works in are the type that have been targets.
When we lived in London in 2005 we left to go traveling the first week of July. The London bombings happened on an underground train he took every morning. We had left a few days before. Should I be frightened that something is going to happen to him?
I was asking DH last night if he was nervous about flying, he said no, he was more likely to be killed by a car when he cycles into work every day. He's right.
There are dangers everywhere, you can't constantly live your life in fear. Of course terrorism in Australia could happen but you have to try and have faith that the government knows a lot more than you, or the reporters, and has it under control.

My statement applies to any person who participates in terrorism regardless of ethnicity or skin colour if that's what you're trying to get at.

Eta: so in essence Hicks is a returned jihadist that walks freely and nobody seems scared of him.

I think it's a valid point, deep down there is fear because they are not "Aussie" ( hence my earlier comment regarding racism). David Hicks is a perfect relevant example.
We are talking just over 20 individuals in a population of over 23 million!!
Aussie bikie gangs have currently killed and injured more innocent victims ( and then all the non innocent ones).
These are an organisation who sole purpose is to bully, intimidate and to incite terror to get what they want.
If you want me to dig up dates and victims I can.
