Dozens of Australian jihadis have vanished in Europe as counter-terror investigators struggle to track them from the Middle East

Dozens of Australian jihadis have vanished in Europe after fleeing the conflict zone in the Middle East.

Ross Guenther, the Victorian counter-terrorism chief, confirmed high numbers of fighters who were due to return home following terror campaigns in Iraq and Syria remain unaccounted for.

Assistant Commissioner Guenther said it was challenging to determine where many of the fighters had landed, before adding it was testing in some places to penetrate borders. 

Speaking at the unveiling of Victoria's counter-terrorism blueprint,MrGuenther said there was currently limited intelligence when it comes to the whereabouts of fighters and the exact number involved overseas. 

'We believe there's a number of Australians still in the Middle East or in Europe,' he said.

'We expected quite a few of these would have made their way back, but that hasn't been the case at this point in time.

'It could partly be because it's very difficult to cross the border there or because they have passed across other borders into western Europe.'

The chief focus of the Victorian counter-terrorism strategy is education. 

'Prevention is far better than cure and we are committed to stopping people from seeking to engage interroristbehaviour,'MrGuenther said.

'In the past year, we've seen the establishment of the fixated threat assessmentcentre, which gives us the opportunity to have police and mental health professionals work together to manage potential threats from fixated persons.'   

Neil Prakash is regarded as Australia's most infamous Islamic State terrorist.  

Born in Melbourne, the ISIS member was believed to be dead, only to be captured in November of 2016 attempting to cross the Syrian border into Turkey using false documents and a fake name.

Prakash is currently on trial on terrorism charges. 

He will not be returned to Australia until his current legal proceedings, as well as any imposed jail term, are completed.

For your enjoyment.....

Have been to Turkey, Egypt, Aden, Malaysia & many years ago India.  I find their culture interesting and their buildings elegant.

As a family we enjoy documentaries and a lot have been on various Byzatine historial sites. One has to look at

 Jerusalem's history to see a lot of wonderful buildings and Libraries.

The illustrations are excellent.  I wish I could have travelled to Persia/Iran.

I wish all my Muslim  friends a happy celebration.

We need to find a way to introduce Sharia when we become a republic, it appears to be the only solution. I know the Gillard government rejected the application in 2011, but a Shorten Government may have no choice.

The son of murdered New South Wale police accountant Curtis Cheng has called for an end to political “scapegoating” of Muslims in Australia following last week’s speech by senator Fraser Anning calling for a ban on Muslim immigration.

Alpha Cheng’s father was shot in cold blood by a 15-year-old Muslim boy, Farhard Jabar, outside the NSW police headquarters in Parramatta in 2015. Two others were jailed for planning the attack and supplying the weapon.

But he said that was no reason to victimise a community. “I am tired of needing to explain to adults that the actions of these individuals cannot be attributed to an entire group of people. If I, of all people, can think this way, then sure as hell our ‘elected’ representatives can think this way too,” Cheng wrote in an opinion piece in Fairfax Media.

He said if anyone were to believe that all terrorists are Muslim, then “that person could, and should, be me”.





Sound reasoning from someone who is more qualified than most to express an opinion.  Most people who have strong views on this subject have had no first hand experiance either way in dealing with the groups they criticise.  It is always someone said or someone else had this experiance or even worse someone on the radio says this is how we should think.

Nizamdeen was refused bail to appear at Waverley Local Court on Friday, where the matter was adjourned for eight weeks.  

He is due to appear at Central Local Court on October 24.

Police said Nizamdeen's student visa was due to expire in Australia but he was in the process of applying for another one when he was arrested.  

Authorities insist there was no ongoing threat to the community following the arrest. 

Anyone with information has been urged to come forward and report what they know to the police.  

Nizamdeen, who is in Australia on a student visa, was employed as a contractor at the University of NSW and has allegedly travelled back to Sri Lanka and 'other areas'. 

He was also a poster boy for a series of promotional videos, supporting the university and it's programs.

The Hero's Program was designed to assist in 'taking on the challenges imposed by a rapidly evolving workplace by equipping people with an innovative and entrepreneurial Mindset.' 

Police say he wasn't on their radar whatsoever, and the arrest was enacted only through the chance discovery of the notebook.

The 25-year-old was taken back to Maroubra Police Station where he was charged with 'collecting or making a document connected with the preparation for, engagement of, or assistance in a terrorist act'.  

Nizamdeen allegedly worked with police in the past, in an attempt to improve community safety, Channel 10 reported. 

Previous colleagues said he was a 'nice guy, a little reserved, but really easy to work with.'  

On his LinkedIn profile, he was recommended as 'a highly dedicated, competent, responsible and passionate individual with strong work ethics and excellent interpersonal skills.'

'I was fortunate to have someone of his caliber in my team,' his mentor wrote.

The accused, Mohamed Kamer Nizamdeen, is seen here on a UNSW advertisement 

I wonder?? It's just a long shot, but could it have something to do with Islam? Just a thought?

I am fed up with these people that cannot have any respect for others on this planet.  They are beyond the pale.

Not all muslims are like this as I have a few friends over my life time, it is just the certain sector that spoils it mainly due to lack of respect for others.
