Muslim leader Dr Jamal Rifi offers to pay Islamic radicals to leave nation
by Leigh van den Broeke
High-profile Muslim leader Dr Jamal Rifi says he will happily buy "a one-way ticket" for any Islamic radicals wanting to leave Australia.
Dr Rifi said the Muslim community in Sydney was deeply offended by comments made by Wissam Haddad, the manager of Al-Risalah Islamic Centre in Bankstown, who said he and his followers would "give up their passports" if they could leave without "being incriminated".
Mr Haddad made the statement following Prime Minister Tony Abbott announcing a $64 million counter-terrorism package. "I'll buy them a one-way ticket out of Australia never to come back," the Belmore-based Dr Rifi said.
