The Federal Government claims the “firebrand Sheikh” Feiz Mohammed is working hand in hand with authorities.
He’s now preaching moderation, not Jihad.
“Certainly as a community leader he’s someone who is getting behind the countering violent extremism program that we have in many communities across Australia,” Federal Attorney General Mark Dreyfus said.
In a weekend interview, Dreyfus was at pains to play down any link between Feiz’s former extremist speeches and the Boston bombings.
We have more Buddhists than Muslims in this country, butÂ only one of those two faiths causes authorities to fear:
“LONE wolf “ potential terrorists radicalising in Australian homes are of grave concern to authorities, AFP Commissioner Tony Negus said in the wake of the Boston bombings.Â
That’s a brave character reference from Dreyfus:Â
The warnings from Australia’s top cop came as Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus claimed a radical Sydney cleric used online by one of the marathon terrorists had changed his attitude to work against extremism after he previously said children should be raised to follow jihad and become martyrs to Islam.
Dreyfus has great faith in the conversion of a hate-preaching bigot and loudmouth. Here is a riot just last year which reportedlyÂ featured supporters and studentsÂ of this Sheikh (who saysÂ he told them not to goÂ and condemned the violence):
Among Feiz’s past teachings:
As they say, it’s only through experience you become wise.Â Not that I retract what I have said in the past, but now I am wiser than I was in the past and the way I do things and say things, I’ve got to be exceptionally careful of … because I do not want to pass the message incorrectly across.
AUSTRALIA has taken a lead role in Syria’s humanitarian crisis amid warnings that if not resolved within months, the world would have to deal with the greatest exodus of refugees since World War II.Â
