ANY Governments first duty is the safety of its citizens and as we have seen in recent times, the threat from extremists is real and growing.
Our response to this growing threat must include: adequate resources for security agencies; ensuring laws are easier to enforce on returning jihadists; and enabling law enforcement agencies with the tools they need to keep the community safe.
At a time when you would expect all political parties to be in heated agreement on this issue, shrill objections from the Greens Party once again demonstrate how disconnected they are from the real world.
Their objections serve to deny our security authorities the stronger powers they need to keep our community safe from radicalised and militarised people returning to Australia and the region.
The vast majority of people I encounter understand the need for the Coalition Government’s commonsense counter-terrorism measure. These measures give security agencies the resources, legislative powers, and freedom of action they need to combat the small group of radicalised Australians who believe they no longer owe their allegiance to Australia and its people.
We must be able to identify and prevent these extremists from leaving Australia to participate in foreign conflicts where they learn dangerous new skills.
We must also be able to obtain and use evidence from overseas to charge, arrest and prosecute extremists when they return to Australia and to monitor and disrupt their activities at home. And we must be able to keep pace with the sophisticated technology at their disposal.
