The impact of ISIS/ISIL is influencing many groups far and wide to commit these terrorist acts. The frequency is alarming and should not be ignored as separate acts of terrorism regardless of whether ISIS claims responsibility or not. This groups actions have created a culture amongst terrorists that they can commit acts at will and are displaying a boldness and very little fear that is alarming.
Australia needs to take heed of this influence and react in a proactive way to deal with this major problem. We cannot sit and ignore and hope this will not impact our community. Strike are doing their part by providing Terrorism Awareness and Response training during its Perth Security Training. We are also attempting to spread this program to the wider community. As Australians it is incumbent on us to become aware of this threat and how to recognise it.
