Five Koranimals who planned violent jihad on Australian soil sentenced to prison terms ranging from 23 to 28 years


Australia: 5 jihadists “motivated by intolerant, inflexible religious conviction” sentenced to prison terms ranging from 23 to 28 years

“Religious conviction.” Angry Anglicans? Petulant Presbyterians? Cantankerous Catholics? No, wait… An update on this story. “Five Australians jailed for jihad plot,” from Reuters, via JW

Another update:

Justice Whealy said:  ‘There is a wide range of material that has never been recovered,’  and “none of the men had shown remorse and their prospects for rehabilitation were poor”,  from BigPond News

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Five Australian Muslim men convicted of plotting to commit violent jihad in Australia were jailed on Monday for terms ranging from 23 to 28 years.

Unanswered questions remain : what measures are in place to prevent them from proselytizing to other prisoners? Why have they not been named?  Why is their identity protected? Who allowed them to settle in Australia, in what they perceive to be behind enemy lines? And why should we, the taxpayers, have to feed them (and their brood) for life?

The men were found guilty in October 2009 of conspiring to commit a terror attack between July 2004 and November 2005, by stockpiling weapons and chemicals to make bombs, in retaliation at Australia’s involvement in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

During a 10-month trial, the prosecutor told the New South Wales state Supreme Court that the defendants obtained instructions on how to make bombs capable of causing large-scale death and destruction and literature which glorified the actions of al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.

The prosecution never told the court of any suspected target.

Judge Anthony Whealy said in sentencing the men that the group was motivated by “intolerant, inflexible religious conviction” and said the prospects of rehabilitation was poor.

The men, aged between 25 and 44 and who cannot be named by order of the judge, were arrested in Sydney in 2005 as part of Australia’s largest ever terror raids…

Earlier today we received this, but I wanted to see the outcome of it first:

ABC News

In October last year the five men from Sydney’s south west were found guilty of ‘conspiring to commit a terrorist act or acts’.

The jury’s verdict came after one of the longest trials in Australia’s history. It ran for 10 months.

During sentencing submissions the prosecutor said the men intended to kill and endanger human life and that they still hold their extremist views.

He said the Crown has no confidence they will be anything but a danger to the public when released.

The men have been in custody since 2005.

They face a maximum sentence of life in prison.

  1. Their identity is no longer protected. Remember their names – unless they meet terminal accidents in jail these terrorists will be on the streets again in less that two decades.

  2. * Unanswered questions remain …

    Very good questions, largely answered in al-Britannia (via Dr Bulldog):

    Published: Today

    [IN traditional Islamic headgear, Asian ex-gang member Amir poses with his sword and issues the stark warning: “Britain’s underworld belongs to the Muslims.”

    The 21-year-old, whose organisation turned over thousands of pounds a day from drug-dealing and credit card scams, claims a post-9/11 fear of terrorism has allowed Muslims to develop a stranglehold on our criminal community.

    Through Islam, he says, they have numbers which cannot be matched, and rival gangs are being forced out by ruthless Islamic criminals who only deal with each other.

    They recruit black and white members in Britain’s jails, tempting them to convert to Islam in exchange for a cushier life inside.]

    Still want to emigrate, Pauline?

  3. Thanks Darrin, I was looking for that so as to send to friends around the world.

    And I agree whole-heartedly with your advice to them.

  4. Y waste money putting this scum in gaol. 10M of wasted tax payers $ to put them on trial. I heard the case cost 40m. Plus 10m to keep them under surviellance. keep these monkeys in comfort?
    Hang them.

    Bulldoze their family homes (play the same game as the Israel”s).

    Then deport their wives & evil spawn.

    No Mr nice guy.

  5. The ABC has mastered the art of reporting the outcome of a terror trial without mentioning islam and muslims.

  6. * Why have they not been named?

    Is the suppression order retrospective? Does it apply to sites where they have already been named?

  7. There are times when the death penalty must be used and this is one such time. In jail, there are a lot of muslims who will cling together like shit to a blanket. It is up to the officers to visit their cells individually at night and stomp them to death. These dirty, filthy scum entered our country through the back door to destroy our way of life. Take a good look Kevin, you recently had 40 Afghan’s released into our society. You are the bloody moron and you will pay the price at the next polls.
