“Too radical even for al Qaeda!”
Mohamed Elomar, husband of Fatima Elomar who was arrested at Sydney airport, believed to be fighting in Syria
Who let this family settle here?Â Who minds our doors? Some is seriously wrong with our immigration controls, and it’s time a frank debate was encouraged:Â
The ABC has learned that a Brisbane woman facing charges for supporting terrorism is married to an Australian believed to be fighting in Syria who apparently openly supports one of the most brutal militant groups involved in the civil war.
Fatima Elomar was travelling with her four children when she was stopped by police on May 3.
Her lawyer insists she was heading overseas for a family reunion… Authorities have confirmed to the ABC that she is the wife of Mohamed Elomar…
A number of pictures of Mohamed Elomar appear on a Facebook page under the alias Abuhafs al Australi. These include photographs of him in military clothing, brandishing a weapon… On a Facebook page, Abuhafs al Australi openly declared his loyalty to ISIS – a hyper-militant terrorist group known in the West as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria…
Video clips uploaded on Abuhafs al Australi’s Facebook site show militant jihadists in a jubilant mood. There are several grisly snapshots of corpses identified as enemies of ISIS, along with derogatory remarks that appear to mock the dead…
Mohamed Elomar’s uncle, also named Mohamed, was one of 18 people jailed for a plot to blow up targets in Sydney and Melbourne.
His brother Ahmed is awaiting sentence for his role in the Hyde Park riot two years ago against a film that mocked Islam.
Through a lawyer, the Elomar family strongly denied Mohamed Elomar was in Syria or neighbouring Turkey.
