The Sydney siege is over, thank goodness. The scene is still chaotic and at this writing, it’s not yet clear whether the gunman is dead. Questions are piling up about Sheikh Haron a.k.a. Manteghi Bourjerdi a.k.a. Man Haron Monis, the alleged jihadist hostage-taker.

Daniel Greenfield at Front Page Magazine has some answers.

Greenfield notes:

Sheikh Haron moved to Australia from Iran in 1996. During that time he was involved in murder, sexual assault and support for terrorism in the most blatant ways possible.

In two decades, he wasn’t expelled from the country despite a laundry list of crimes and horrible behavior like sending Jihadist letters to the families of soldiers killed in Afghanistan.

The core problem is that Haron and all the others like him should…

1. Never have been allowed into Australia

2. Should have been forcibly deported after their first crime, their first act of support for terrorism…

An immigrant charged with over 40 sexual offenses only 6 years after arriving in the country should have been deported.

A Muslim settler who made no secret of his support for terrorism should have been deported.

If Sheikh Haron had been deported after his first crime none of this would have happened. Australia must tighten enforcement. It must be readier to deport criminal migrants like Haron.

And remember: Australia’s border security policies are pretty badass already compared to America’s meek attempts.
