Police reject Boston bombing link to Sydney sheik Feiz Mohammed
Because investigating the ‘religion of peace’ might cause violent reactions, so its better to let sleeping dogs sleep, or is it? Â Unfortunately, Islam is the ultimate sleeper cell.
COUNTER-TERRORISM police have discounted links between a
controversial Sydney sheik headbanger and the Boston bomb suspects after it emerged one of them had posted old videos of the cleric’s firebrand teachings on his website.
Right. They are “old videos”, so there is nothing to worry about. Â The jihad is raging since 1400 years and shows no signs of dying down. What makes these Keystone coppers believe that Feiz Mohammed Â mellowed out since he called on the Muslims to kill Geert Wilders? Why was the good sheik never charged with incitement?
A profile page on YouTube belonging to Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed in a shootout with police, includes two videos recorded by Sydney’s Sheik Feiz Mohammed.
Muslim leaders have urged the sheik, based in Auburn, to publicly condemn the attacks.
“We are aware of the video and the links to the incidents currently unfolding in Boston,” Assistant Commissioner Peter Dein said. “Our Community Contact Unit regularly speaks to the sheik and we do not hold any specific concerns.
“While we continue to monitor what is happening in the US we must emphasise that there are no specific threats which cause us to alter our position.”
TheÂ naivetÃ©Â stinks to high heaven.
One of Sheik Mohammed’s clips on Tsarnaev’s page is a five-minute attack targeting the children’s fictional character Harry Potter.
The video is found inside a folder titled “islam” and had been “liked” by Tsarnaev approximately four months ago, along with another clip recorded by the sheik.
A separate folder featured two videos with Russian language titles – both have been removed.
The sheik’s representatives from the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama’ah based at Auburn refused to respond to the matter yesterday.
A law enforcement source said Sheik Mohammed had changed his views considerably in recent years and no longer subscribed to his “radical” teachings.
Wishful thinking. A claim that couldn’t be more absurd. Did he renounce the shahada?
Both videos on Tsarnaev’s page were several years old, the source said, adding that the last time police had spoken with the sheik was after the September 12 Muslim riots in Sydney last year.
“This is just baggage he’s sort of stuck with – he has a different belief system now to what he had then,” the source said.
And which one would that be? Buddhism?
“I know he wouldn’t have had anything to do with any of this.”
We wouldn’t be surprised if he did.
