Terror on the home front. Do you care if they are “homegrown” (Islamic) terrorists, or if they’re so-called migrants? Its becoming more difficult for the spin-doctors to keep telling furphies about “lone wolves”, when they are part of a pack of more than 1.5 billion around the world.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull admits Australians face a “real threat” of terrorism on home soil after Islamic State issued a chilling call-to-arms for “lone wolves” to attack the MCG.
“Kill them wherever they are, knock on their doors and behead them, stab them, shoot them in the face or bomb them.”
The article has urged lone wolves to follow the lead of terrorist Ezzit Raad, who it claims has died fighting for IS in Syria.
“Kill them on the streets of Brunswick, Broadmeadows, Bankstown, and Bondi. Kill them at the MCG, the SCG, the Opera House, and even in their backyards,” an article published yesterday in the new English-language online periodical urged.
“Stab them, shoot them, poison them, and run them down with your vehicles.
“Kill them wherever you find them until the hollowness of their arrogance is filled with terror and they find themselves on their knees with their backs broken under the weight of regret for having waged a war against the believers, and by Allah’s will, and then through your sacrifices, this Ummah (community of Muslims) will be victorious.”
The editorial from the terrorist organisation, entitled Among The Believers Are Men, also alleged that Melbourne man Ezzit Raad, who was convicted over a plan to blow-up the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2005, died while fighting for IS.
The editorial paid tribute to Raad, who fled Australia for Syria in 2013, where he recruited others to fight for the terrorist group.
The article shows a photo of what appears to be Raad’s body.
The article also paid tribute to Melbourne teenager Adam Dahman, also known as Abu Bakras, who carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq in 2014.
The article urged others — “those living in Australia in particular” — to follow their lead.
“Follow the path of these righteous souls because there is no other path,” it urges.
“The Khilafah [caliphate] has called for you to mobilize (sic) from your dens to alleviate the pain afflicting the hearts of the Muslims by striking the kuffar in their homelands.
“It is only from the hikmah [wisdom] of Allah that he has scattered you around the earth and in the various lands of the Crusaders to see which of you are best in deeds.
“So here before you are the doors of jihad — unhinged and in their lands. Light the ground beneath them aflame and scorch them with terror.”
