A fanatic Sydney’s young man, whose passport was cancelled over concerns he had a “jihadi mentality”, says he did make fake videos about the war in Syria

Abu Bakr, a Bankstown labourer, is among 20 Sydney men whose passports were cancelled by the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (Asio).

The spy agency accuses them of preparing to engage in politically motivated violence overseas.

The ‘aspirants jihadists’ were also said to be a threat to national security because of a “jihadi mentality”.

Bakr said his videos were not intended to encourage violence…

“What I was really trying to do was remind the Muslims of what they’re supposed to be doing, right, not staying silent,” he said.

The 19-year-old said he intended to fight the cancellation of his passport all the way to the high court.

Last week two men were charged after allegedly supporting Australians fighting in Syria’s conspiracy.

The Australian federal police said they believed about 100 Australians were suspected of being involved in the Syrian terroristic acts.
