'Al Qaeda? Never heard of it', says Hicks

A Talibastard is something to be:

Mamdouh Habib only went to find a good Muslim school……

Good boy: “I went overseas with the intention to help people, to do something.”

Jew-hating Tali-tubby David Hicks thrills the crowd at the Sydney Writers’ Festival: HICKS FOR HICKS

Now read earlier accounts of Hicks’s story, as told by Hicks himself. You’d imagine that the audience at the Sydney Writers’ Festival, being literate types, might have read those accounts too. So how did they react to Hicks’s latest claims?

Mr Hicks and his father Terry, his long-time supporter, both received standing ovations during the talk.

He brags of meeting Osama bin Laden, waging war on the West and wanting to die for Allah. And those idiots love him.

  1. Hicks is a traitor to the Australian peope. When the Far right takes control of the governemnt at the next election they will move to imprison Hicks for the remainder of his life. QED

  2. This guy is a traitor who (probably) has infidel blood on his filthy hands. Its a pity l am 800 kms away – if l had been in Sydney l would have picketed the literary function.

  3. At least he (Hicks) has learnt how to lie.

    Why the hell did the Australian Gov let that turd back into Australia..

  4. Hicks the hero

    Ted Lapkin on the extraordinary love shown to David Hicks by the fools at Sydney’s Writers Festival:

    David Hicks appeared at the Sydney Writers’ Festival to discuss his autobiography Guantanamo: My Journey. And along for the ride was an audience of 900 credulous fools, who gave him a standing ovation and queued at a book signing afterwards….

    During his festival appearance at the weekend, Hicks claimed the first time he ever heard the name al-Qaeda was “from the lips of an interrogator in Guantanamo Bay”. But once again, he is busted by those pesky notes he penned to his family.

    In a May 2001 missive he wrote: ‘’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.’’…

    It is easy to establish that David Hicks is a fraud. Far more perplexing is why purportedly intelligent people have become so morally unhinged that they see him as worthy of applause.

    Equally puzzling is why any of the festival’s sponsors would want to be associated with such an event… And then there are the NSW and Australian governments, which misused taxpayer dollars to provide a platform for it.

    This is not about freedom of speech. I will defend Hicks’s right to stand on whatever street corner he chooses to tell whatever lies he wishes, but I don’t want my tax dollars to pay for it…

    What the writers’ festival audience seemed to ignore is that al-Qaeda would just as soon cut off their heads as look at them. The novelist Martin Amis put it well on BBC TV’s Q&A when he described the phenomenon of Western lefties making common cause with Muslim radicals: “People of liberal sympathies, stupefied by relativism, have become the apologists for a creedal wave that is racist, misogynist, homophobic, imperialist, and genocidal. To put it another way, they are up the arse of those that want them dead.”

    The eagerness of this naive crowd to excuse the jihadi transgressions of David Hicks is, quite simply, masochism in the service of sadism.


  5. The less Mary looks, the more innocent Hicks seems

    Sydney Peace Foundation advisor Mary Kostakidis in The Sydney Morning Herald on Wednesday:

    [David Hicks] went over to help people who were being persecuted. He is an Australian who was let down. Lashkar-e-Toiba, the group with whom he travelled to Kashmir, was years away from being declared a terrorist organisation. There is no reference to terrorist training or any training aimed at hurting civilians [in Hicks’s letters]. There is not one mention of al-Qa’ida. Did he break any law? No . . . The former prime minister John Howard, who led us into war under false pretences, a war in which many Australians were killed, also appeared at the [Sydney] writers festival, funded by taxpayers.

    David Hicks in a letter home, August 10, 2000:
    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.

    Another letter home at the same time:
    I learned about weapons such as ballistic missiles, surface-to-surface and shoulder-fired missiles, anti-aircraft and anti-tank rockets, rapid-fire heavy and light machine guns, pistols, AK47s, mines and explosives . . . I am now very well trained for jihad in weapons, some serious.
