This is an important step in the right direction. This is what every country in the free world should be doing. Any Muslim who joins the jihad should be stripped of his or her citizenship. When Neil Prakash left Australia and joined ISIS, he joined the enemy force, a force that is at war with Australia and the other countries of the free world. Not canceling his Australian citizenship and letting him back in to Australia now would be like letting Americans who had joined the Nazi Party and gone to Germany back into the U.S. in 1942, at the height of the war. It would be suicidal.
“Australian IS militant stripped of citizenship,” by Francesca Merlo, Vatican News, December 29, 2018:
An Australian-born militant of the so-called Islamic State is stripped of his citizenship whilst he awaits extradition from Turkey where he faces a prison sentence.
Australia says it has stripped a suspected so-called Islamic State militant of citizenship. 27-year-old Neil Prakash becomes the 12th person to be stripped of Australian citizenship as a consequence of their militant links.
Having converted from Buddhism to Islam in 2012, Prakash featured in Islamic State videos and has previously admitted to being a member of the so-called Islamic State, though he claims to have “nothing to do” with the group in Australia.
The government, however, says the 27-year-old is a threat to Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Australia’s Minister for Home Affairs, Peter Dutton, told news agencies that the “Islamic State is opposed to Australia, their interests, values, democratic beliefs, rights and liberties.” He stated: “This government is determined to deal with foreign terrorist fighters as far from our shores as possible”….
The Melbourne-born rapper has been linked to several attack plans in Australia and has urged independent attacks against the United States.
