He is only asking for help because he has been captured. That doesn't mean he has changed his views. Let the Turks execute him, and never allow any of his family to become Australian citizens or set foot on Australian soil. They can rot where they are!

Not only did he fight for islamic state, but he influenced and recruited others to travel and fight with them. Send him a big pack of peanuts or popcorn to munch on in jail

Stuff him, we better not help this scum gutter crawler of society. We aren't a charity case. He relinquished any rights to anything Australia offers once he pledged his alliance to the scum . NO!

Now this spineless little low life wants our help?
Nope...... Leave him in his Turkish prison and let red tape tie up any application for help for years 😡
As for his kids...... he doesn't even know if they are still alive, much less where they are. And imagine what sort twisted ideology they have been subjected to.
I'd be surprised if their entry into Australia ever needs to be considered.
