Sydney: Describing Violent Criminals as "Men of Middle Eastern Appearance" Makes Muslims Go Apeshit…

Tim Blair

A meeting of “ethnic community leaders” in Sydney ended in a shouting match today after heated debate over whether police should be able to use ethnic descriptions of criminals. 

Lively times of late for Sydney’s former men of no appearance: 

Hilel Merhi was a loud-mouthed young man with a penchant for extreme violence.


Armed with a pistol, he had robbed liquor and video stores and petrol stations, and had his driver’s licence disqualified because he was a danger on the roads. 

Hilel has since been disqualified from the Australian Society of People With Heartbeats. Meanwhile: 

Police are seeking help in relation to an armed robbery at a Liverpool convenience store on April 14 …

The offender threatened the assistant with a knife before clearing out the register.

The man is described as Middle Eastern in appearance … 

Only a knife? Time to upgrade: 

The police bomb squad is assessing suspicious items at a unit in Sydney’s south where officers have found an arsenal of weapons, including a ‘tommy’ sub-machine gun and an AK-47 …

Detectives from the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad arrested a 20-year-old man at a cafe on Kent Street in Sydney’s CBD. 

No arrests yet following knife attacks on taxi drivers: 

The first man produced a knife and threatened the driver, demanding money. The driver gave the man cash and his mobile phone before the second man entered the vehicle and stole coins and a global position system navigator.

The armed man then slashed the driver across his face, from the bridge of his nose, across his upper right eyelid and to his right temple, leaving a deep wound …

The first man is described as Middle Eastern/Mediterranean in appearance … The second man is described as Middle Eastern/Mediterranean in appearance … 

Same deal in Campsie. Perhaps a meeting of community leaders might help. Then again, maybe not: 

A meeting of ethnic community leaders in Sydney ended in a shouting match today after heated debate over whether police should be able to use ethnic descriptions of criminals.

  1. The muslims have to be treated with the utmost severity – oh – they will try and fight back but a little patience will easily account for these miserable criminal thugs. A spade is a spade, even if it is wrapped in PC newspaper.

  2. For a whole lot of reasons, it is approriate to state ethnic appearance..for one thing it warns people of who to be wary of.. If these people don’t want the negative publicity they should stop committing crimes.

  3. Yes, the lovely leftists are at it again-How do these retards think the police will catch the criminal if they can’t ID him?
