The problem with de-radicalisation programs around the world is appeasement and infiltration.
There is a tendency for government agencies charged with the programs for de-radicalisation to fund and interact with radicals and those apologists for them.
Australia’s policies are not the cause of radicalism.
Meetings with moderate Muslims – even those with no association whatsoever with a Mosque may bear better fruit.

There seems to be a tendency world wide to identify as moderate, Muslims who we are told are fighting radicalization, but who are in fact Islamists who are pro-sharia and have never, ever renounced the doctrine of armed jihad.
These so- called, self proclaimed, moderate Muslims gain positions on government de-radicalisation boards but use their position to surreptitiously push the Islamist agenda rather than thwart Islamisation.

In the Texas Terror, the World Trade Centre Bombers being recommended as well.
Counter-radicalization programs, whether they work or not, are very expensive exercises. It is certainly true that they don’t work on everyone and there are no guarantees.

In Saudi Arabia every one of the radicals released under the guarantee of the Saudi government from Guantanamo are now fighting on the side of ISIS.
