11:12 pm
the enemy in the war on terror has to be ready for this. and very quickly the word radical disappeared and in the popular mind tira was associated with islam and muslims most of whom in australia were lebanese muslim sydney will have no use. for potentially a direct and immediate enemy. who are treated like we we're all suspects we were all under suspicion. our member i was walking home from school from the bus stop and this was just around one september eleventh happened and i remember a man spat at me. but i really didn't get fazed by that it didn't affect bin anyway i just thought that was his issue and he was ignorant but as the daughter of

community leader general rifi. is soon aware of what the attacks mean to live an easy astray and all of a sudden we are being victimized vilified and marginalized due to the actions of somebody somewhere who believes a certain thing and has a grudge against a certain nation and all of a sudden that impacts on me and partly what i observe poster think and the type of person that i am and it's also. by getting that. that negative perception from the wider community also makes the question what is it then to be in a strongly. we become very paranoid about neighbors we start questioning them we start interrogating them as possible threats and dangers and in the process we distance them from our songs we say to them the finger at some point about you now is you live in these no so you're muslim us not

11:15 pm
as a bit of a terrorist. settlers johns much as you are chip. branded the enemy within the loyalty of lebanese astray and is questioned like never before . and zacky mela begins to see the vilification as one more reason for his own happiness or loss but my parents ever lived near those no one else around sitting at home with mind the pressure on a figure out what to do tomorrow and i feel compelled to be a part of this soap or war on terror. you can call it radicalism you can call it fundamentalism extremism are call it someone calling for help.
11:16 pm
is effect on our community was very intense. after september eleventh. young people have been under different kind of roots. it's no longer they get the rich quick no longer drug no longer had a word it's even worse than that it was a religious radicalization. zacky mela is one of many vulnerable young lebanese astray and men in punchbowl. but one of the very few who sees extremism as the answer to the despair and isolation. he spends long hours in a random search for enlightenment. when he doesn't find what he's looking for at the lake in the mosque he seeks out radical clerics for advice. i wanted to
11:17 pm
find out. why we have muslims. on. engaging in acts of violence with a target in applying whether it's blowing up an embassy whether it's blown up thank you and others with you all at no where are they getting this audiology from where is it coming from. a lot of these newly found religious leaders. who have no formal teaching have no formal training who have no qualifications whatsoever their way of training on formidable young people and a lot of people with a mentally unstable. right then those just pretty much dead in the in the brain i was detonated. on that advances i had some comfort.

11:19 pm
we govern ised or what if it's. and support of those victims and we do the a lot of good work at that time. now unfortunately the media again and again. did not see us as a victim they saw us also at the same time as part of the problem brothers in the solutions. i went through the september eleventh the bali bombings the london attacks we are the generation of news headlines we are constantly reacting and being put under the microscope of constantly having to justify ourselves place ourselves in boxes change ourselves from the mold start off on the back full convince the world of who we are all that while trying to maintain a normal lifestyle. in this climate of fear zacky chooses the wrong moment to play the part of jihad warrior. he applies for
11:20 pm
a passport to fly to the middle east saying he wants to make a prospective bride in lebanon. alarm bells start ringing at the astray and security service a zero the sort of one day to give me a phone call to call me up and say listen we're from this trojan security intelligence organization. we want to speak to you about your past but up occasion ah there is no easy or was. i. who are you guys never heard of use of the thought of the cia or you the cia. we have this trained security intelligence organization and when it is speak to you immediately. and then agents waiting for me outside size one i'm zacky mala this was rock this is hollywood. this is what i want. and here it is and this is where it begins. a lonely teenager has finally got the attention he craves. but beyond malice
11:21 pm
fantasy fee is a spreading that a strain borne terrorists could threaten a nation. as wild suspicions spreads the lebanese community feels under attack. as the war on terror rages a strain borne zakk email or is depressed and stacking shelves in a local supermarket. but to the intelligence services he's a potential terrorist. i was damn stupid and educated i was a fool rebellious. i'm sitting in all these questions what's your view of them oil level. what's your view about osama bin laden. do you support terrorism. a thinking of participating in in the violence or said opposite but on the other
11:22 pm
hand if jihad is declared an art. as one teenager enjoys his fifteen minutes of fame the lebanese community feel the brunt of new anti-terrorist laws. as part of the war on terror at home a strain in acts something like fourteen different pieces of legislation which i geared towards increasing the power of government to prevent and control terrorist organizations and terrorist acts we were quite a fright. of the implications of such laws on our daily living we also were afraid that the young people who might have been influenced one way or the other may says you are wrong thing they may do the wrong thing or even thing the wrong thing. i
11:23 pm
accept that there is a feeling in the community that thoughts were going to be promised but that's not the reality we can't arrest and charge people for. thinking something but not acting on it in any white we have to have solid acts committed by people before we would act in terms of charging them for criminal offenses. but the new laws make the community feel as if they're being targeted. we suffered a great deal we could not trust that tuesday new legislation will be elected to properly rush them through. the security services were in fact identifying small numbers of people who were thinking about planning to arista attacks but the skyll of that behavior and the scale of the response were totally different. so the atmosphere becomes much more
11:24 pm
paranoid not simply much government but also much the community. at the start of the second gulf war the lebanese a strain community is increasingly accused of being sympathetic to terrorism after the naughty eleven situation of the use it was probably two to three years after that i had a situation where a couple of undercover police rocked up at my workplace and said what it is. after growing up in punchbowl south is a proud lebanese a strong. now working in management so we sat inside and apparently somebody suggested that i was a supporter of terrorism or funded terrorism. my first reaction was to laugh because i was very outspoken against the war in iraq and so on. and i did call the radio many times to prefers that. somebody apparently had my the
11:25 pm
comply and they'd come out to investigate but i thought was laughable. the new legal powers and increased police activity inevitably target zacky malla. this ready for deployed not the model the game is above from the foreign minister alexander downer who said we have formed the opinion that you are a long way to engage in conduct that not prejudiced the security officer. or of a foreign country. and i read the us there are still there is no what it meant. malice passport is withheld because the authorities believe he could see terrorist training in the middle east and the federal government seizes the opportunity to promote its antiterrorist credentials in the media. it time to the point where it's on what walk out onto the streets people come to me and say
11:26 pm
you are the terrorist you're the g hardest or the fundamentalist or the extremists go back home you're walk we don't want you here. where you wanted to go i was born here this is my country this is all on our. isolated and increasingly paranoid zacky mela is getting attention beyond his drains. but now his jihad fantasy is starting to scare him. out of the threat of the little more door saying. jesus. course as your lord is your god get out of this country go back on. the gun. those knowing that look after me. and within twenty four i was the new self falls counterterrorism unit right at my house and charge me for position of a illegal firearm. then zacky makes the
11:27 pm
