Yay, Aussies

Australia’s Leader Strikes Massive Blow Against Muslims on Welfare
"Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott ruffled liberal feathers across Australia this week, announcing a series of new measures designed to curb Muslim extremists’ freedom and influence.

Among other measures, Abbott announced that Australia will begin denying welfare to individuals thought to be possible terror threats. He clearly linked Muslims extremism with welfare abuse, pointing out that dozens of Australians now fighting against freedom in the Middle East had received welfare while living in Australia.

Abbott didn’t stop at welfare either. He indicated Australia will begin to revoke passports from some individuals with dual nationality and curb overseas travel.

Each of these measures is meant to reduce the mobility of potential Islamic extremists who would either seek to strike inside Australia or bolster the ranks of the Islamic State terror group in the Middle East.

Abbott made his motivation and intentions very clear. “For too long, we have given those who might be a threat to our country the benefit of the doubt,” he said. “We will never sacrifice our freedoms in order to defend them, but we will not let our enemies exploit our decency either.”

Abbott didn’t confine his remarks to policy either. In a statement many Americans will regret didn’t come from our own president, Abbott charged moderate Muslims to take responsibility for what is happening inside their religion and take steps to stop radical Islamic violence"
