“The violent, extremist, Islamic terrorist who did this on this street was radicalised in this country,” Mr Morrison said.
“He wasn’t radicalised in a suburban mall, he wasn’t radicalised in a classroom, he was radicalised in a community here in Melbourne. We all have a job to do to keep Australians safe. …
Mr Morrison also said again he would “not cop the excuses” for Islamic terrorism and that religious leaders had to help security services who are following more than 400 suspected extremists.
And he dismissed the idea that migration was a factor in Shire Ali’s attack, as he had been in Australia since he was five years old.
The Islamic terrorist was a product of Australia, a strand of culture present in Australia. That’s multiculturalism for you, what we get for tolerating the intolerant.
