    Quite a difference though between US and "war on terror" and Australia and what they've been exposed to isn't there?

    How does anyone rationalize in their mind that ISIS is the "good" side????????

    They aren't using their rational mind.

    Which comes back to.... wtf is going on with some humans, in western societies???? I can understand this, if you're from a country where Islam is the dominant religion, and can even understand it if you're from some of the African countries where Christianity is practiced in a fashion similar to what we see in some Islamic societies, and you are afraid to think for yourself, but in a western democratic society, the only thing to explain it is a serious need for an ideological cause to fight for. We see the same thing with PETA nuts and global warming nuts, who throw all their angst into what they view as a moral crusade. The cause isn't as important as the need to be fighting.

    Not really.

    1.) Australia has been a staunch ally of the US in the war of terror.. err on terror. In fact I would almost claim it has been the most loyal of all. They have been heavily involved in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    2.) Australia has a large Muslim community.. about 2.2-5% of the population, especially from Lebanon. There has been illegal immigration from most of Asia towards Australia and many, if not most, are Muslims. These people are treated like dirt by the Australians, and that often does not exactly go down well among other Muslims.

    3.) Lonely and impressionable people are in general easy to con into such situations. Before (and still) many in the west were conned into organisations like Scientology or Christian cults. This is no different. And often these cults use things like love/sex to lure people into the cult. I remember Jehovas witness coming up to my door .. 2 men. I tell them to go away.. next time, two hot women knock on the door.

    There are sadly many cases of girls being lured into situations by men.. lured into the sex trade to going to Syria to become a jihad bride. There was just a case of a woman in an European country.. Austria or Holland/Belgium I think, who went to Syria to pull out her teenage daughter who had taken on a holiday to Turkey and only to join her "boyfriend" in Syria. She then regretted it but could not leave.. until her mother came and got her back and now she is awaiting trial in her home country.

    Or the many many cases of women and men who join cults across the world. I remember that many in the Wacho stand off were in fact young women and men that had "disappeared" from their families and were known to be lonely and highly impressionable.

    So basically.. it is not new at all.

    The sympathy for the jihadist that exists within the Muslim community.

    This is more proof that the, "if we leave them alone, they'll leave us alone", school of thought is bunk.
