4:13 am
of person that i am an adult by getting that negative perception from the water community also makes the question, what is it them to be in a stroke? ah, we become very paranoid about our neighbors. we start questioning, we start interrogating them as possible threats and di, inches and in the process we distance from from ourselves. we say to them, the thing that's important about you now is your live in these not so much when that's not your strain in us. that's no longer a parent, no longer important. you are what we feel to be and fear turn to aggression is encountered by actor and film directed george bash on his way to work the morning after 911 and putting more van to fill up pitcher m. you can pull that in front of me and just cut me off the

4:15 am
but my parents won't let me those no one else around sitting at home mind the pressure trying to figure out what to do tomorrow. and i feel compelled to be a part of the so called war on terror. you can call radicalism, you can call it fundamentally ism extremism, or call it someone calling for help. the effect on our community was very intense. after september 11th over the young people have been under different kinds of fluid. it's no longer the get rich, quick no longer drug, no longer hedwood. it's even worse than that. it was religious radicalization.
4:16 am
jackie manna is one of many vulnerable young lebanese australian men in punch, bold. 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 la came to mosque and seek out radical cleric for advice. i wanted to find out why we have muslims con, engaging in acts of violence, with a target pine. whether it's blowing up an embassy, whether it's blowing your soft up and killing others with you all and know where are they getting this or the old you from. where is the coming from? or a lot of these newly found religious leaders who have no formal
4:17 am
teaching, i have no formal training, have no qualifications whatsoever. their way of playing on vulnerable young people. and a lot of people we're mentally unstable. right then i was just pretty much did in the brian i didn't head on the dances on some concert. there was no warning. just a massive explain the bomb told i have a feeling and my being young to read one you own from 91188, a trailer and lose their lives in the bali bombing. once again, the lebanese is trailing community feel demonized by the media. but volley
4:18 am
bombings. bring that home global violence home to astronomy. for many young australians, kuda beach is almost like an extension of bondai granola to have been attacked and destroyed. there is extraordinarily shocking. there is a sense in which anger about islamic cher is now domesticated. now it's at home and people are really angry. that's when we felt it, tara has a term we galvanized over the effort and support officers, victims, and we did 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 rather than the solutions i went through. the september 11th the bali bombings london attacks.
4:19 am
we are the generation of news headlines. we are constantly reacting and being put under the microscope, constantly having to justify ourselves, place ourselves in boxes, change ourselves from the mold data from the back, full convinced the world a few. we are all that while trying to maintain a normal stress in lifestyle in this climate of fear. zacky mallow chooses the wrong moment to play the part of g had warrior he applied for a passport to fly to the middle east saying he wants to make perspective bride in lebanon. alarm bell, stop ringing at the estrella and security service. i decided one day to give me a phone call to call me up and say, listen, live form destroyed, insecurity intelligence organization. we want to speak to you about your passport application. didn't know what your was is. i don't know
4:20 am
how you guys never heard of use. i said, i've heard of the see i, you the c l i a we are this julian security intelligence organization, and when they speak to you immediately, and then an agent's waiting for me outside size one, i'm jackie mela. this was locked wall. this is hollywood. this is what i want. and here it is. the sort of begins a lonely teenager had finally got the attention he craved. beyond malice, fantasy fear, the spreading that it's trailing on terrorist could threaten the nation. as wild suspicion spreads the lebanese community field under attack, as the war on terror rages as trailing bond. becky miller is depressed and stacking
4:21 am
shelves in the local supermarket, but to the intelligent services. he's a potential terrorist. i was dumb, stupid, on educated, over the full, rebellious i'm sitting and then all these questions or to view the annoying 11 or to view some of been loudon. do you support terrorism? a thinking of participating in environments? i said no, i'm not part of it, but on the other hand, if you had is declared, then i have to take as one teenager enjoys his 15 minutes of fame. the lebanese community feel the brunt of new anti terrorist laws. as part of the war on terror at hon. a strain to enact something like 14 different pieces of legislation, which i geared towards increasing the power of government to prevents and
4:22 am
control terrorist organizations and taro, sex. we were quite a freight of the implication of such laws on over daily living. we also were afraid that or young people might have been influenced one way or the other. there may say you wrong things. there may do the wrong thing or even there may thing the wrong thing with i, except that there is a feeling in the community that forts we're going to be punished. but that's not the reality. we count the race and charles people for thinking something, but not acting on it in any way. we have to have solid acts committed by people before we would act in terms of charging them the criminal offenses. but the new
4:23 am
laws make the community feel as if they are being targeted. we suffered a great deal. we could not trust that zeus. new legislation will be enacted properly. they rushed them through the security services were in fact identifying small numbers of people who were thinking about planning terrorist attacks. but the scale of that behavior and the scale of the response were totally different. so the atmosphere becomes much more paranoid, not simply amongst government, but also amongst the community at the start of the 2nd gulf or the lebanese, this trading community is increasingly accused of being sympathetic to terrorism. after the $9011.00 situation of the it was, it was probably 2 to 3 years after that. i had a situation where
4:24 am
a couple of undercover police rocked up at my workplace and i said, we need to speak to you. after growing up in punch bowl, sal l can, is a proud lebanese, a strong leon. now working in management. so he sat inside and, and apparently somebody suggested that i was supporter of terrorism. i funded terrorism. i was, i, my 1st reaction was a laugh because i was very outspoken against the war against iraq and so on. and i did call the radio many times to profess that somebody apparently had made the complaint and they come out to investigate. but also it was laughable. the new legal powers and increased police activity inevitably target becky mellow. they started such a place, not a model, and they gave me a piece of paper from the farm, asked alexander dana. he said, we have formed the opinion that you are likely to engage in conduct. the more
4:25 am
prejudiced the security officers of a foreign country. and i read that i still do know what it meant with malice. passport is withheld because the therapies believed he could seek terrorist training in the middle east. and the federal government seizes the opportunity to promote its anti terrorist credentials in the media. i came to the point where every time i walk out on the streets, people come to me and say you are the terrorist, you are the hardest. you're the fundamentalist or the extremist. go back home, your walk where i want you. he where you want me to go. i was born. he, this is my country, this is all on me. isolated and increasingly paranoid zacky mella is getting attention beyond his dreams.
