Sydney: "prominent Muslim youth leader" caught with 5 kg Cocaine; Abdul-Rahman says he’s innocent…

Because you’ll never find a guilty Mohammedan.

Andrew Bolt

A PROMINENT Muslim youth leader, who preaches the perils of crime to his community, has been charged with possessing more than $1.5 million worth of cocaine.

Police allege 36-year-old Fadi Abdul-Rahman, who featured in Kevin Rudd’s 2020 Summit in 2008 and has been a fighter for justice (sharia) in western Sydney, was part of a commercial cocaine syndicate that was caught with 5kg of the drug hidden in a chess set…

Fadi Abdul Rahman has a habit of blaming the infidels.….  like here after the Cronulla Riots

KRudd buddy Fadi Abdul-Rahman with the ‘working families’ fraudster when he was still Prime Minister during the 2020 Summit in Canberra in April, 2008.

The courtroom was a world away from when Abdul-Rahman mixed with ex-PM Rudd in 2008 and was a member of the summit’s Strengthening Communities, Supporting Families and Social Inclusion Committee.

He became a prominent public figure for his work in steering Lebanese youth away from a life of crime and his work was the subject of SBS and ABC TV documentaries.

If that doesn’t get him off the hook I don’t know what will. At least he should not go to prison until after Ramadan… like this well-known Columbia businessman and cultural leader in Missouri:

Abdul-Rahman says he’s innocent.

Police allege 36-year-old Fadi Abdul-Rahman, who featured in Kevin Rudd’s 2020 Summit in 2008 and has been a fighter for justice in western Sydney, was part of a commercial cocaine syndicate that was caught with 5kg of the drug hidden in a chess set.

Abdul-Rahman appeared in the Downing Centre Local Court on Tuesday, facing two commercial drugs charges after he was arrested during a police sting at Punchbowl in March. Abdul-Rahman’s lawyer Brett Galloway told The Sunday Telegraph he would defend the charges.

“There are no facts which establish any of the offences. . . they are consistent with his innocence or that he was in the wrong place at a bad time,” Mr Galloway said.

The courtroom was a world away from when Abdul-Rahman mixed with ex-PM Rudd in 2008 and was a member of the summit’s Strengthening Communities, Supporting Families and Social Inclusion Committee.

He became a prominent public figure for his work in steering Lebanese youth away from a life of crime and his work was the subject of SBS and ABC TV documentaries.

According to police documents tendered to court at a bail hearing in April, Abdul-Rahman was one of three men arrested on March 30 at an apartment on Dudley St, Punchbowl.

Police allege Abdul-Rahman and another man were in the process of cracking open the chess set when they were arrested.

Police had intercepted the cocaine, which had been smuggled from the US, and replaced it with an “inert substance”, court documents said.

Police also placed a listening device “in the vicinity of the consignment” which allegedly recorded Abdul-Rahman saying: “It’s a f . . . . . . . tracker.” Abdul-Rahman was charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of cocaine and conspiring to import a commercial quantity of cocaine.

Punchbowl man Ahmad Khodr, 23, was also arrested and charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of cocaine and conspiring to import a commercial quantity of cocaine.

Ibrahim Hamra, 38, of Yagoona, was charged with importing a commercial quantity of cocaine and allegedly supplied the drugs to Abdul-Rahman and Khodr, court documents said.

Abdul-Rahman, a father of four, was one of 1000 Australians chosen to participate in Mr Rudd’s 2020 Summit.

He shot to prominence following the 2005 Cronulla riots with his outspoken defence of Sydney’s Muslim community. He also set up the Independent Centre of Research — a Muslim youth centre in Lidcombe aimed at convincing youths to turn away from a life of crime.

He will return to court on July 3.

  1. Innocent – let the courts decide – assuming that the PC morons are prevented from influencing the courts. In any case one should be highly suspicious of any “muslim youth leader”.

  2. I wonder what his reward will be when he sues for wrongful arrest …

    Eight days earlier, she had been arrested by officers attached to the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad on suspicion of supplying cocaine. She was questioned but released without charge.]
