  • Sydney Terror Raids: terrorists planned to behead a random person publicly in Sydney

    A PUBLIC execution of a random Australian was designed to shock the community, a Sydney court has heard.
    Details of the alleged plot have emerged as the first man charged after this morning’s terror raids has appeared in Sydney Local Court on a charge of conspiracy to commit a terrorist attack.
    Lawyers for Omarjan Azari said he would make no application for bail.
    Prosecutors allege the plan to commit the act was designed to “shock, horrify, and terrify” the community.
    “I don't think I’ve seen much worse,” a prosecutor told the court.
    Mr Azari’s appearance follows a series of raids across Sydney and Brisbane and allegations of a plot to behead an Australian and upload the act to social media.
    While the claims remain unconfirmed, Channel Seven reports one the men charged in this morning’s raids in Sydney planned to kidnap a random Australian, execute them by beheading in a public place, possibly Martin Place in Sydney’s CBD, and film the act and post on social media.
    “Police believe this group had started planning to commit violent acts in Australia. Those acts related to random acts against public,” Australian Federal Police Acting Commissioner Andrew Colvin said.
    Further reports have emerged terrorists planned to drape the victim in an Islamic State flag.
    In court the prosecutor said there was a plan for Mr Azari to commit extremely serious offences, and determination to do so.
    Mr Azari’s lawyer said the allegations against Azari were based on “one phone call”.
    His case was adjourned until November and he will remain in custody.
    Speaking from Arnhem Land, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said he was briefed on the counter terror raids before officers swooped this morning.
    The Prime Minister said there were “quite direct exhortations … coming from an Australian, who is apparently quite senior in ISIL to networks of support back in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country”.
    “This is not just suspicion, this is intent,” he told reporters in Arnhem Land.
    Mr Abbott said he would be returning to Sydney later today to be briefed on the raids, following visits to RAAF bases to farewell Australian troops bound for Iraq.
    He insisted he would like to return to Arnhem Land — where he has been spending a week — but he couldn’t make a “specific commitment”.

    The extremists arrested in Australia's largest counter-terrorism operation were planning to snatch a random member of the public off the street in Sydney and behead them, police told Daily Mail Australia, in an attack bearing the brutal hallmarks of the Islamic State.

    Fifteen people were detained in pre-dawn raids on homes in Sydney and Brisbane by NSW and Queensland state police and the Australian Federal Police. Just one has been charged so far, with serious terrorism-related offences, and was due to appear in a Sydney court later today, police said.

    "Police believe that this group that we have executed this operation on today had the intention, and had started to carry out planning, to commit violent acts here in Australia," AFP Acting Commissioner Andrew Colvin told reporters in Sydney. "Those violent acts particularly related to random acts against members of the public."

      Remember, the real tragedy would be if we allowed these terrorists to influence Australian immigration policy.

      But how came these violent anti-Semites to Australia in the first place, I might ask?

      ...the national editor of the Australian Jewish News, Dan Goldberg proudly acknowledges that: “In addition to their activism on Aboriginal issues, Jews were instrumental in leading the crusade against the White Australia policy, a series of laws from 1901 to 1973 that restricted non-White immigration to Australia.” The Jewish promotion of non-White immigration and multiculturalism in Australia has been (and continues to be) a form of ethnic warfare aimed at destroying Australia’s traditional White racial homogeneity — and with it supposedly any potential for a mass movement of anti-Semitism in Australia.
      I'm wondering if the mass movement of anti-Semites from Malaysia and Indonesia might change their thinking on this issue? If it doesn't, the native Australians should consider a mass movement of their Jewish population to Israel, just to be on the safe side. Shortsighted and unrepentant never works out well for anybody.

      ...Professor Markus proudly observes that: “Jews were amongst the leading advocates of the enactment and extension of racial vilification and anti-discrimination legislation by the federal and state parliaments.”[iii] In truth, the achievement of the twin Jewish goals of ending of the White Australia policy and instituting state-sponsored multiculturalism were attained with the passing of the Racial Discrimination Act of 1975 which stated: “It is unlawful for a person to do any act involving a distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, colour, descent or national or ethnic origin.”
      I'm seeing where Tassman's ridiculously caricatured authoritarianism comes from. IT IST UNLAWFUL TO THINK DISCRIMINATORY THOUGHTS!!!

      In practical effect, the passing of the Racial Discrimination Bill in 1975 was the Australian equivalent of the drastic rewriting of American immigration law in 1965. In both cases, the gates were opened to a flood of non-white immigrants from the Third World with racial and cultural backgrounds very different from the majority European-derived population.
      To be fair to other aggressively aggrieved minorities, in America the 1965 act was less the responsibility of the Jews and more the responsibility of the Irish, specifically of the Kennedy type.

      In her book Ideology and Immigration the Australian sociologist Katharine Betts states that the dismantling of the White Australia policy was the result of an elite conspiracy: “Public resistance,” she notes, “was circumvented by the use of administrative procedures and secrecy rather than open debate.” The final phase of the abolition, which involved the enactment of the Racial Discrimination Act by the Whitlam government (1972–75), was “a political victory” for the cosmopolitan elite, which, while failing to convert White Australia’s supporters “by reason and evidence,” left them “unconverted but outmanoeuvred.
      As now, as ever, a small group of people who use their international connections, free time, and money to dedicate themselves to a single issue of interest to them and them only can subvert democracy very handily, but it's definitely NATIONALIST PATRIARCHAL RACISTS who promote and encourage extremism and the bad decisions it spawns, amirite?

        I think that the problem has more to do with how it has become horribly politically incorrect to want immigrants to assimilate into the prevailing culture. The entire melting pot concept has been thrown out in favor of a balkanized system where it is a point of pride to only speak your native language and declaring oneself a hyphenated American (or Australian) is a badge of honor.

        I'm always still in trouble again
