Ali Khalif Shire Ali (pictured), 23, tried to get a firearm and ammunition in a plot to attack Melbourne’s Federation Square on New Years Eve in 2017. He has been jailed for 10 years
Justice Champion said Ali had planned ‘terror and horror’ to achieve his ‘twisted religious and political objective’.
The Somali-Australian told undercover operatives about his plans and wanted to get his hands on a high-powered assault rifle for the attack.
Ali is the younger brother of 30-year-old Hassan Khalif Shire Ali, who fatally stabbed Pellegrini’s Espresso Bar owner Sisto Malaspina, 74, in November 2018.
WE’RE STILL NOT COMMUNIST ENOUGH FOR THE GREENS
Australia has never been more communist. And still it’s not enough for the Greens’ Sarah Hanson-Young.
There are 26 million Australians, and more than half — including 70 per cent of workers — now get their income from the government.
More than 7 million are on the dole, pension or other benefit. Another 2 million work for government, and 6 million now get the new JobKeeper subsidy of $1500 a fortnight to save their private-sector jobs.
Never have so many Australians been paid by government — and been so controlled by them, under tough anti-virus restrictions that have shut many businesses.
This should frighten us all, particularly the Morrison Government. How can it cut back all this free money without being punished?
But for Hanson-Young and her fellow Greens, too much is barely enough.
