One thing I don't agree with policy wise is cancellation of people's passports if they are at risk of going to fight in Syria.
I say let them go.
See the full horror that is taking place.
And then don't let them come back.
Don't keep them here, frustrated, angry and festering. And not doing anything to de-radicalise them.

Just because more women are murdered through domestic violence, than through acts of terror, doesn't make me less scared of terrorism. And I'm tipping many other Australians feel the same way.
I'm struggling to see how it's relevant to the debate.

I can't find the original post on this topic (I meant to reply last night) but the comparison of the issues in Lebanon to what Australia may face from Muslim immigration is OTT.
And for what it's worth I thought Lebanon was pretty much at peace. There was the suicide bomb late last year, car bombings every now and again targeted at politicians and the odd spat with Israel in the south but otherwise it's a pretty safe place? Not a place where people are faced with daily violence (Palestine refugee camps aside).
Note: I forgot about the 2005 30 day war, however that was with Israel, not between Christians and Muslims.
Anyway, my point is that comparisons of issues in the Middle East involving the Lebanese, Israelis and Palestinians is immensely complex and not reflective of anything that may happen in Australia.

I believe it's irrelevant to this debate.
People who aren't at risk/subjected to domestic violence aren't scared of being killed by their partners.
The fear of terrorism is you don't know when or where. It's unexpected.

Maybe a medical comparison might be (and I'm sure you can think of a better one, but see the point I'm making) that it's natural to be afraid of Ebola (during the last epidemic), but you're much more likely to die from complications arising from a cold.

Sonia Kruger - glass house?
But stopping a terrorist plot in its tracks is not sustainable. The culprits are already "radicalised" by that stage. If the wider community had spent more effort accepting and engaging, they might not have turned that way. People aren't born terrorists.
