His name is Peter Veness and he is …. Â a reporter with cancer of the brain (no kidding!)

Andrew Bolt:Â Helping Hicks
The third extract finds Hicks, by this point infamous throughout the West, in Guantanamo.
No mention is made by Hicks in these extracts at least – and none by Vaness – of what is indubitably true – that Hicks went to war for a terrorist group and bought al Qaeda’s vile anti-Semitism.
In theÂ Daily Telegraph, one of the extracts is introduced by this highly evasive reference:
What began asÂ an effort (by Hicks) to help the Kashmiri cause for independence…
And so is Hicks allowed to reinvent himself as not a wannabe terrorist but as a victim and even “helper” of oppressed Kashmiris.
But let’s now quote from not Hicks’ memoirs but a letter he wrote to his father to describe the exact “help” he’d given in Kashmir to the Lashkar e-Toiba terrorist group:
I got to fire hundreds of bullets. Most Muslim countries impose hanging for civilians arming themselves for conflict. There are not many countries in the world where a tourist, according to his visa, can go to stay with the army and shoot across the border at its enemy, legally.
Here’s how Hicks described what he was really up to in a letter to his mother, found in his jihad diary:
There is one thing I wish to explain so you understand what I’m up too [sic], and that’s the fighting which in Islam is called Jehad. I want you to understand this point so you are not turned off from Islam for fighting is not exactly an atractive [sic] thing.
Hicks described his jihad in other letters to his family:
(So)Â the Western-Jewish domination is finished, so we live under Muslim law again… Jihad is still valid today and will be for all time. The West is full of poison. The western society is controlled by the Jews with music, TV, houses, cars, free sex takes Muslims away from the true Islam keeps Islam week and in the third world.
Here’s how he described the leader of another terrorist group which helped to train him in terror techniques:
By the way I have met Osama bin Laden 20 times now, lovely brother, everything for the cause of Islam. The only reason the west calls him the most wanted Muslim is because he’s got the money to take action
White-washing Hicks, vilifying the US. Those involved in this tawdry exercise should be ashamed of themselves.
