“There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

“The man’s baggage contained the 17 undeclared ballistic vests and a black hoodie featuring an Islamic creed known as the Shahada, while two more vest were found in unaccompanied baggage.” The Shahada is the Islamic profession of faith: “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” Saying it in Arabic in front of Muslims makes one a Muslim.

Australian Border Force seize 17 illegal bullet proof vests and hoodie with Islamic logo in raid at Greenacre and Ashcroft
Raids have been carried out on two Sydney properties as part of an investigation by the Australian Border Force (ABF) into the importation of 17 undeclared bulletproof vests.
Performance-enhancing drugs, a flick knife, air pistols and illicit tobacco were found and seized by ABF and NSW police during the raids in Ashcroft and Greenacre on Monday.
It’s the result of investigations that were launched in mid June, when a man and woman arrived into Sydney International Airport from Lebanon via Dubai.
The man’s baggage contained the 17 undeclared ballistic vests and a black hoodie featuring an Islamic creed known as the Shahada, while two more vest were found in unaccompanied baggage.
Assistant Commissioner Investigations Steve Lancaster said the ABF was ready to protect Australia from organised crime and terrorism.
“As this operation shows, ABF work does not stop at the physical border and those involved in illicit importation can also expect a knock on the door from an ABF investigator,” he said in a statement on Thursday.
The maximum penalty associated for importing undeclared ballistic vests is a fine of $170,000.

Mosque Imams in Canada continue to pray to Allah for Victory of Muslims over ‘Kufaar,’ i.e. Non-Muslims

A teachable moment, from Tarek Fatah:

In the prayer, the clerics ask Allah among other things to give “victory to Muslims over the ‘Qawm al-Kafirun’ the Arabic phrase that lumps all non-Muslims, that is Jews, Hindus, Christians, Atheists, Buddhists and Sikhs into one.

At one downtown Toronto Masjid run by the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Muslim Association of Canada. Far from being solemn and condemn the acts of terror being carried out by Muslims across the world, Imam Abdool Hamid showed no sense of humility or humbleness, remarking in English how he wished Islam “will become established in the land over all other religions, although the ‘Disbelievers’ (Jews, Christians, Hindus and Atheists) hate that.”

“I bear witness that there is no God worthy of worship but Allah. He is one and has no partner, and I also bear witness that Muhammad (PBUH) is the Servant and Messenger of Allah, whom Allah sent with the ‘Religion of Truth’ [Islam] and with Guidance so that this Truth and this Guidance [Islam] will become established in the land over all other religions, although the ‘Disbelievers’ (Jews, Christians, Hindus and Atheists) hate that.”

Later on he would repeat the ritual praying to Allah to grant Muslims victory over Non-Muslims.

Here is the actual Arabic used in his sermon and the English translation of the specific call for ‘Muslim victory over Non-Muslims’ and a prayer for those conducting Jihad, that is ‘Mujahideen’:
