A DISABILITY support pensioner with two wives has been sentenced to at least six years jail for helping seven men go to Syria to fight with extremist groups including, Islamic State.

Hamdi Alqudsi called out to his family including his fully veiled wife that he loved them and then raised a finger in a salute to Allah before being lead away by corrective services.

Justice Christine Adamson sentenced Alqudsi to eight years jail with a non-parole period of six years saying that he must have expected the men who he sent to Syria would die in the fighting.

“The offender’s reasons for offending was at least in part that he understood it to be his religious duty to help send men to Syria to fight,” Justice Adamson said.


Hamdi Alqudsi’s wife was in court to support her husband as he was sentenced for helping seven men go to Syria to fight with extremist groups.

Alqudsi was found guilty by a jury of seven counts of helping seven men travel to Syria to fight between June and November 2013. A conviction that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison for each count.

During the trial the jury heard numerous intercepted phone calls and read transcripts of social media conversations between Alquidsi, his recruits and Australia’s most senior IS member in Syria, Mohammed Ali Baryalei.

The phone calls revealed Alqudsi organised the travel plans of the men to fly to Istanbul, in Turkey, and then on to the border province of Hatay where they would be smuggled into Syria and brought to “Abu Omar” the nickname for Baryalei.

Six of the men made it to Syria and two of the men, Tyler Casey and Caner Temel, died fighting for opposing Islamist rebel groups.

Casey and his wife Amira Karroum were with al-Qaeda affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra when they were killed by Islamic State fighters in January 2014 while Temel was killed in the same month fighting for Islamic State.

During the conversations Alqudsi used codes sometimes calling the men “soccer players,” or referring to battles as “operations or surgeries.”

In one phone call Alqudsi told a recruit Amin Mohamed that he had just received a message from, “the boys”.

“There’s a big, big surgery, big, big operation coming up involving 1500 brothers and the Emir said there may be a very big number of them that may attain martyrdom … you guys better start pushing before the front lines are full.”

Justice Adamson said his activities to help the men get to Syria which included booking flights and hotel appeared “banal”.

“The most important role the offender played was to connect each of those men to Baryalei before they crossed the border from Turkey to Syria.”

Justice Adamson said Casey Tyler met Alqudsi while at court in 2011 when one of his wives Carnita Matthews was being prosecuted for falsely claiming a police officer tried to pull off her burqa during a traffic stop. She was later acquitted of the offence on appeal.

Tyler introduced Alqudsi to three of his friends and asked him to help them reach Baryalei in Syria.

Alqudsi denied he knew what Islamic State was in 2013 or that helping the men travel to a war zone was a crime.

He told the court he loved Australia and taught his step grandchildren to sing “Waltzing Matilda”

Justice Adamson concluded his evidence was, “false and misleading.”

He will be eligible for parole on July 11, 2024.

  1. He taught his kids to sing ‘Waltzing Matilda’. If they asked him to quote a single verse from the song what’s the bet he couldn’t do that? Why did he bother carrying n with his lies in court? Was he stupid enough to think anybody would believe his newly found great sense of patriotism?

    Aside from that – the second and third picture down are classics. Note how covered over the women** are, especially the one in grey. And then in the third picture, she’s still frantically averting her face away from the camera. As if anyone can see her. Exposing their fat little islamic egos to the harsh light of truth must become increasingly scary for these entities which thrive in darkness.

    ** were they women btw, how can anyone tell? Did security staff at the court check their identity/gender or for concealed weapons ,explosives?

  2. The raised finger is support for Isis not Allah. I think this man should be given a medal for sending these cretins to Syria, and icing on the cake that two died there. Only shame is that he didn’t go with them along with his two gorgeous wives.

    1. Yeh, like they will stump up and admit it! Centalink will fall over themselves to find away around this problem so these people can milk the Australian taxpayer dry! They keep screaming out that they only follow Sharia Law and not man made law so any statement made by this Islamotrash is pure and simple BULLSHIITE!

  3. Anything this pathetic piece of Islmotrash says is BS. His and his brethren’s use and abuse of the disability pension should be a crime and punished as such. They are ripping the Australian tax payer off and nobody does anything because they fear being labeled a racist or bigot. All they need is a cheque book Islamtrash doctor and they are set for life. These “Disabled” dole bludgers should be sent off for an independent assessment and when found to be fit and well be order to pay back every cent to the government, slapped with a goal sentence an then kicked out of the country with their brood of wives and kids. This piece of cesspit dwelling Islamocrap should be stood up against a wall and shot, he is guilty of treason.
