AFP probes Terror Fundraising by local Somali Extremists


Moving to Australia soon…

Islamic extremists ‘fundraising for terrorists’

Unfortunately, they are not ‘extremists’- they are simply good Muslims.

The Qur’an on Jihad

‘Jihad is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike something which is good for you and that you like something which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.’

(Surat-al-Baqarah (2), ayah 216)

‘O you who believe! Be not like those who disbelieve (hypocrites) and who say to their brethren when they travel through the earth or go out to fight: ‘If they had stayed with us, they would not have died or been killed,’ so that Allah may make it a cause of regret in their hearts. It is Allah that gives life and causes death. And Allah is All-Seer of what you do. And if you are killed or die in the Way of Allah, forgiveness and mercy from Allah are far better than all that they amass (of worldly wealth etc.). And whether you die, or are killed, verily, unto Allah you shall be gathered.’

(Surat-aal-Imran (3), ayah 156-158)

‘Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their wealth; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah’s Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success.’

(Surat-at-Tawbah (9), ayah 111)

(Surat at-Tawbah (9), ayah 5)

and the Prophet (PBUH) said:

‘Jihad is in effect until the Day of Judgement’ – If the Imam calls a group of people to arms, then they must join his military forces. And he should at least announce Jihad once every year.’


There you go. Straight from the horses mouth. And then we have our police commissioner Mick Keelty tell us that “True Islam denounces murder, it is not practicing the Koran to commit murder or to commit atrocities,-”

Which Koran are you reading, Mr. Keelty?

Anyhow, here’s the article by Cameron Stewart from

Islamic extremists ‘fund raising for terrorists’

slamic jihad may have received funds
Small group suspected of helping extremists
Alleged funding took place last year

THE Australian Federal Police have launched a wide-ranging investigation into suspected terrorist fundraising by Somali Islamic extremists in Australia.

The move reflects growing concerns that small groups of radicalised Somalis in Melbourne have been raising terror money and sending it to fund Islamic jihad in their war-torn homeland.

The east African nation has become a fertile ground for terrorists, with al-Qaeda using the lawless country to regroup and plot new attacks abroad.

Somali Community of Victoria president Abdurahman Jama Osman has said that a small group of Melbourne-based Somalis are suspected of helping to fund extremists in the capital, Mogadishu.

“There was a fundraising in Melbourne and they said they were going to give the money to the Arab parts of Mogadishu,” Mr Osman said.

“But many Somalis believe that the money was sent to the Islamic military in Somalia. I’m sure they were breaking the law, and if so, they have harmed our reputation.”

Australian laws on terrorism forbid raising money for extremists overseas.

Security sources say the alleged fundraising being investigated by the AFP took place while the former hardline Islamic government, known as the Islamic Court Union, was in power late last year.

The AFP has declined to make any comment on the issue and will neither confirm or deny that it is investigating the matter.

Mr Osman said only a small number of Australia’s 16,000 Somali immigrants were extremists, but that this small minority was hard-line.

“Our problem is that young people are in touch with Wahabis (members of a fundamental Sunni Muslim sect),” he told The Australian in an interview earlier this year. “There are very few but you cannot change their mind — nobody can change their mind.”

In December, a 25-year-old Somali man from Melbourne, Ahmed Ali, was killed after travelling to Somalia to join the Islamic jihad there.

Australia’s Somali community has grown rapidly in the past decade as thousands of Somalians have sought to escape famine and war in their homeland.

In a speech to Somali community members in Melbourne last week, Sydney Somali leader Herse Hilole warned that young Somalis were being seduced by Muslim extremists.

“We know there are supporters in Australia who want to recruit young Somalis to go back or support financially the Islamic Courts,” he said.

“The community must be made aware of this, and we must put a stop to it.

“Somalis who take up Australian citizenship should know they are now committed to obeying Australian law … under Australian law, it is forbidden to join jihad in any country, or join any war that is against the interests of Australia.”

Some Somali leaders believe more than a dozen young Somali men have returned to their homeland to take up arms for the Islamic jihad.

But Issue Musse, of the Werribee Islamic Centre in Melbourne, said the vast majority of the Somali immigrants in Australia were moderates.

He said the funds raised by community members in Australia were more likely to be sent to their families back home, rather than to Islamic or political causes.

“Many Somalis have people to support back home so they are more likely to raise funds for their families rather than for (the former government of) Somalia,” Sheik Musse said.

The US military has launched air raids against suspected Somali al-Qa’ida strongholds in the wake of the downfall of the Islamic Courts government, toppled in December by Ethiopian troops tacitly backed by the US.

Shelling has rocked Mogadishu this month as Ethiopian and Somali troops, backed by helicopter gunships, attacked Islamist rebels and militias.

Scores of civilians have been killed and hundreds wounded in what is seen as the worst fighting for more than 15 years.

The complete and total delusion of Hans Blix: 

Ignorance is Blix

From Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch:
The headline, of course, comes from the occasional LGF tagline. But here is new evidence of its truth. This afternoon, after I arrived in Boise, Idaho, to speak at Boise State University, I had the pleasure of having lunch with two members of the campus chapter of the College Republicans. One was John Sawmiller, president of the chapter, who told me that when Hans Blix spoke at the campus some time ago, he had the unenviable task of driving him around Boise.

So in the course of things, Sawmiller asked Blix how he could advocate negotiations with Iran, given the intransigence of Ahmadinejad.

Ahmadinejad, Blix countered, was in fact a “pragmatist” and a “pluralist.” A man who could be reasoned with. George W. Bush, by contrast, said Blix, was a “theologian,” driven by a religious fanaticism that was not open to reason.

A very neat inversion of reality, Mr. Blix.

At Last: Israel Retaliates after continued Pali-Rocket Attacks, which results in the inevitable Car swarm

* Meanwhile, the elected terrorists from Hamas are making new ‘peace plans’

Hamas Calls for Kidnapping and Murder, AP Blames Israel
Associated Press Palestinian shill Ibrahim Barzak reports on Hamas’ latest call for mass murder, after Israel struck back against the constant rocket attacks directed at Sderot from Gaza:

Hamas calls for offensive against Israel.

The relentless pro-Palestinian bias of the AP is very obvious in this one. Notice that the first sentence blames the “strained cease-fire” on Israel. It’s doubly deceptive because 1) it doesn’t mention the rocket attacks, and 2) there is no “cease-fire;” the rockets have never stopped coming from Gaza.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Hamas militants called Sunday for a fresh wave of attacks against Israel after troops killed nine Palestinians in weekend fighting, straining a five-month-old cease-fire.

In response to the bloodshed, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ more moderate Fatah movement urged him to consider breaking off contacts with the Israeli government, despite his pledge to the United States to hold regular meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. Hamas and Fatah are partners in a coalition government.

The rockets finally make an appearance as an afterthought in the third paragraph.

Among the nine Palestinians killed in the weekend upsurge of violence were two gunmen and a 17-year-old who died Sunday in the West Bank. The fighting also included a Palestinian rocket attack on the southern Israeli town of Sderot that damaged a home.

While the international wire services disseminate Palestinian propaganda, Defense Minister Amir Peretz says “six years of overlooking Qassam attacks have come to an end.”

And on Hamas TV, they’re recommending that more IDF soldiers be kidnapped, because it’s been so successful: PMW – Latest Bulletins.

And since AP employs Arab stringers who present us with the Islamist view, we get reports like this one: Israeli troops kill 8 Palestinians

By ALI DARAGHMEH, Associated Press Writer

* And here some of the views from the ‘Arab Street’- from the elected thugs who are gobbling up the Jiziyah from the Euro-Dhimmi’s:

Member of the Legislative Council Um-Nasser Farachat:
“With no connection to my being a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council and my involvement in the leadership, as a Palestinian citizen, by God, I don’t believe in any solution other than one: kidnapping Zionist soldiers.”

The newscaster:
“The kidnapping of more Zionist soldiers [is required]… 10 Zionist soldiers – maybe less – will guarantee the release of thousands of Palestinian prisoners.”

Sa’id Siam, Former interior minister:

“There were suggestions to repeat the operations of kidnapping other Israeli soldiers, because we know that the occupation understands no other language. Second, the capture of the [single] soldier will not be enough cause for the release of [the] over 10,000 prisoners… There are many suggestions, but what’s important is what will actually be done.”

Member of the Legislative Council Um-Nasser Farachat:

“We hope that with the help of Allah, praise and extol him, the kidnappers will stick with their demands and will not lower their demands in any way… until they [the Israelis] will surrender to our conditions.”

The newscaster’s summation:

“A number of suggestions were brought up during the meeting of the Legislative Council, and the most prominent was the call for further kidnappings of Zionist soldiers as a solution to end the prisoners’ suffering.”

“Ayaan Hirsi Ali should be put to death”- sez Pittsburgh Imam

But only in a Muslim country, not in America, and “it’s a very merciful religion if you try to understand it-”

* You see, this hateful cretin is cunning and sly enough to keep his own ass out of trouble,  but he doesn’t shy away from inciting the masses to assassinate her. He hopes that at least one of his soldiers will do it ‘for the faith of Allah’- because the faith must be ‘protected’ by whatever it takes, including murder.

A “community debate” in Pittsburgh: “Furor over author Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s visit stirs debate on religious freedom,” by Robin Acton in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, with thanks to Joe:

…A community debate over religious freedom surfaced in Western Pennsylvania last week when Dutch feminist author Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Somali refugee who has lived under the threat of death for denouncing her Muslim upbringing, made an appearance at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

Islamic leaders tried to block the lecture, which was sponsored through an endowment from the Frank J. and Sylvia T. Pasquerilla Lecture Series. They argued that Hirsi Ali’s attacks against the Muslim faith in her book, “Infidel,” and movie, “Submission,” are “poisonous and unjustified” and create dissension in their community.

Although university officials listened to Islamic leaders’ concerns, the lecture planned last year took place Tuesday evening under tight security, with no incidents.

Imam Fouad ElBayly, president of the Johnstown Islamic Center, was among those who objected to Hirsi Ali’s appearance.

“She has been identified as one who has defamed the faith. If you come into the faith, you must abide by the laws, and when you decide to defame it deliberately, the sentence is death,” said ElBayly, who came to the U.S. from Egypt in 1976.

Hirsi Ali, an atheist, has been critical of many Muslim beliefs, particularly on subjects of sexual morality, the treatment of women and female genital mutilation. In her essay “The Caged Virgin,” she also wrote of punishment, noting that “a Muslim’s relationship with God is one of fear.”

“Our God demands total submission. He rewards you if you follow His rules meticulously. He punishes you cruelly if you break His rules, both on earth, with illness and natural disasters, and in the hereafter, with hellfire,” she wrote….

Although ElBayly believes a death sentence is warranted for Hirsi Ali, he stressed that America is not the jurisdiction where such a crime should be punished. Instead, Hirsi Ali should be judged in a Muslim country after being given a trial, he added.

“If it is found that a person is mentally unstable, or a child or disabled, there should be no punishment,” he said. “It’s a very merciful religion if you try to understand it.”

* Who allowed this creep to live among civilized peoples and spread his poison?

Zahida Chaudhary, a member of the education council and education secretary at the Muslim Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh in Monroeville, insisted that Islam is a peaceful religion.

“The Prophet Mohammed was a peacemaker and a role model for humanity,” she said. “My understanding is that he was a peaceful person who believed that religion was a choice. He tried to teach people and bring them into it, not punish them.”

In fact, he said, “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him'” (Bukhari 9.84.57).

Australia: Mastermind recruiting Islamic gang inside super jail

The Ring Leader… Bassam Hamzy


Sydney Morning Herald/Alex Mitchell

THE NSW Government has launched a prison crackdown on a group of the state’s most dangerous criminals who have converted to Islam.

The targets are held in the highest security jail in Australia, the Super Max facility inside the walls of Goulburn jail, where one in three of the inmates is a Muslim fundamentalist or a convert.

Two prison converts, one a convicted murderer and the other a rapist, have married Muslim women in marriage ceremonies conducted over the telephone on party lines.

Attorney-General John Hatzistergos is introducing sweeping changes to the prison regulations so the Super Max Muslims are monitored 24/7 because of safety and security fears.

“We have to be able to control every movement and every utterance because of the threat they pose,” Mr Hatzistergos told The Sun-Herald. “We don’t want to see any risk to people either inside or outside the system. We simply can’t take our eye off them.”

Called the “Super Max Jihadists”, they are easily identifiable, with shaven heads, long beards, carrying prayer beads and conducting prayers at least three times a day in their cells.

Their ringleader and powerbroker is Bassam Hamzy, jailed for 21 years for the cold-blooded shooting murder of an 18-year-old man outside the Mr Goodbar nightclub in Oxford Street in 1998.

Prison officers have confiscated pictures of Osama bin Laden from the walls of Hamzy’s cell. Prisoners have been captured on surveillance tapes kneeling in front of Hamzy and kissing his hands.

The 37 Super Max inmates, including backpacker serial killer Ivan Milat, have committed 48 murders and are serving combined sentences of 550 years.

Now 12 of them claim adherence to Islam and form a close-knit culture in the purpose-built jail within a jail. Under Mr Hatzistergos’s new measures, Hamzy and his apostles will be deemed “extreme high security” and be subject to controls that can be ordered at any time by NSW Corrective Services commissioner Ron Woodham.

The crackdown will stop money being sent by sympathisers on the outside to influence inmates to convert to Islam.

In future, Mr Woodham will have to approve in advance any sums of money sent to inmates’ accounts in the “extreme high security” category.

“We don’t have a difficulty with people taking up a religion per se in jail,” Mr Hatzistergos said.

“A lot of people do and that can be beneficial.

“Where we do draw the line is where religion is really a camouflage for other activities.
P 2

“If any person thinks that by taking up religion, that somehow it is going to lead to them being treated differently on a day-to-day basis, they will be sadly mistaken.”

He was supported by Mr Woodham, who said: “We’re concerned about real heavy criminals who have had no interest in religion at all during their lives but, on coming to jail, then convert to Islam.

“A number of Aboriginal prisoners, unfortunately, doing impossible sentences, have converted to Islam. They denounce their Aboriginality for Islam.”

Outlining the new powers to case-manage the Hamzy followers, Mr Hatzistergos said: “They can be moved around the jail system for any purpose at any time.

“The commissioner can put in place any additional security arrangements he wishes, including a restriction on contact visits, monitoring those visits, monitoring phone calls, recording phone calls and checking all mail.”

Mr Hatzistergos, who is also Justice Minister, said the Department of Corrective Services would face justifiable criticism if it didn’t act in response to the safety and security of the prison system being compromised. “We make no apologies for it,” he said. “We are dealing here with, religion or no religion, some of the worst of the worst offenders who have no respect for authority.

“The thought that somehow religion has acted as a catharsis for them and made them see the light is, quite frankly, ludicrous.”

But prisoner rights group, Justice Action, says there is no evidence the men are engaged in gang activity.

Justice Action spokesman Brett Collins says prison authorities should welcome religion among prisoners.

“This clearly is quite laughable,” he said.

“The area itself – the HRMU [High Rise Management Unit] – has had $75 million spent on it only for a mere 70 people,” he said.

“To justify such money, it requires every now and again this sort of a stir to remind us of how dangerous they are [where] in fact if they practise religion, that’s a good thing, not a bad thing,” he said.

Inmate is focused on being martyr for Islam


Dangerous … Leith Marchant.

LEITH Marchant, serving a 32-year minimum sentence for the assassination-style murder of Nathan Treganna during a robbery in August 2002 at Lane Cove River Park, has adopted a hardline approach to Islam since his conversion.

Guided by his fanatical beliefs, 33-year-old Marchant rejects TV and radio and won’t have either in his cell.

He sleeps on a concrete bed without a mattress to demonstrate his piety.

The main focus of his daily religious studies is martyrdom, Corrective Services Commissioner Ron Woodham said.

“He tells people, quite openly, if he was out on the street, he’d be prepared to die for the cause,” Mr Woodham said.

In November 1999, while serving seven years for armed robbery, Marchant broke out of Long Bay jail after prising apart iron bars but was recaptured a few days later.

Sentencing Marchant for murder in 2003, Justice Greg James said the accused had shown “ruthlessness and decisiveness” in shooting the victim in the head at point-blank range and labelled him “a person who is almost without prospect of redemption”.

Marrying from prison – over the phone

TWO Super Max inmates who converted to Islam married Muslim women using a three-way telephone hook-up involving the prisoner, his bride and an imam.

* And would that allow those Muslim women and their clans to settle in Australia? If that is the case, what measures have been taken to prevent it from happening?

Guy Staines, a convicted murderer and former jackaroo, was converted to Islam by the Super Max ringleader Bassam Hamzy.

Soon after, he began an illicit relationship with a female prison psychologist whom he converted to Islam.

* You start wondering sometimes about these psychiatrists and lawyers who fall for the crims, seems that most of them need psycho-counseling themselves…

She was forced to resign last year when their relationship was discovered.

They then married over the phone. Staines called the woman from the Super Max and an imam joined them on a party line, where they swapped wedding vows according to the Koran.

Although the marriage has no status under NSW law, it is recognised by Muslims.

Another Super Max inmate to marry over the phone was Peter Buchanan, an Aborigine who was also converted by Hamzy.

Hamzy arranged contact between Buchanan and a Muslim woman who was a single mother.

He provided them with sums of money totalling about $600.

After their telephone wedding, Buchanan confessed to his new wife that he was a convicted rapist.

* Not a problem: Mohammed was a rapist himself, and rape of infidel females is sanctioned by just about every Muslim cleric. Ask catmeat sheik Hilali, he will tell you!

Buchanan was released from jail on parole last year after completing his 13-year sentence.

Militants blow up part of American school in Gaza


* Our ‘friends’ from Hamas, the ‘democratically elected’ genocidal maniacs of Palistan, -we have to support them because they are ‘democratically elected’– right?


Now these fanatical murderers and assassins have teamed up with Al Qaeda and bomb internet cafe’s and Schools: Today the terrorists struck at American International School: Militants blow up part of American school in Gaza.

(The school has no connection to the US government.)

GAZA (Reuters) – Palestinian militants blew up parts of the American International School in Gaza on Saturday, causing damage but no injuries, Palestinian security sources and witnesses said.

The security sources and school officials said the militants detonated three explosive devices in two of the buildings of the school in the northern Gaza Strip. The blast occurred before the start of the school day and no one was injured in the attack.

“A large number of masked gunmen attacked the school at dawn. They poured petrol all around and blew up several explosive devices and destroyed some of the premises,” said Rebhi Salem, the school’s director.

The gunmen identified themselves as an al Qaeda organization operating in Gaza, Salem said. There have been a rash of attacks in Gaza in recent months attributed to Islamist groups that claim to be followers of al Qaeda.

The school is a private institution that is part of an association of “American Schools” in the Middle East. The curriculum stresses English as well as Arabic studies. None of the teachers are American.

Agence France Presse has a few more details, and gratuitously includes the ludicrous denial that refuses to die—that the attacks are not connected to Islam. Even though the attackers all seem to be fanatical Muslims, who say they’re doing it in the name of Islam and quote the Koran to justify it.

And in this case the denial comes from a representative of the genocidal Islamic terror gang Hamas. The media really do think their readers are stupid.

Bombers wreck American school in Gaza Strip.


Of course all of these activities have nothing to do with the Religion of Peace


The official said police were considering a possible link with a wave of attacks on internet cafes in the Gaza Strip over the past month that has seen around 30 targeted.

Most of the attacks have been claimed by an extremist group called “The Swords of Truth,” which says the cafes offer young Palestinians access to pornographic websites.

A library run by a Protestant Christian group was also extensively damaged in a pre-dawn bomb attack in Gaza City last Sunday.

A former minister from the Islamist movement Hamas, Alaadin al-Aaraj, told teachers during a tour of the wreckage that the “shameful attack has no connection with Islam.”

Muslim Brotherhood Leader Calls for Attacks Against the West

From LGF

While the Muslim Brotherhood’s Western enablers mount an
Islamist charm offensive
in the US, doing their best to portray the world’s most pervasive Islamic supremacist group as “moderate” and “non-violent,” back home in Egypt the “general guide” of the Brotherhood, Muhammad Mahdi ‘Akef, is calling for attacks against the US and Israel.

* The darkened callous on his forehead is the mark of the true fanatic; it comes from zealously grinding his forehead into a carpet, 5 times a day for many years. You are not wrong to call this guy a head banger. You can see that also on Al Zawahiri’s forehead, (OBL’s sidekick)


In his weekly sermon, the general guide of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Muhammad Mahdi ‘Akef, called for attacks in Palestine, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

He said that the U.S.’s plan was based on imposed rule according to a unilateral view characterized by extremism without taking into account the simplest principles of the unique faith, culture, and society of other peoples.

’Akef called for directing the energy of the resistance, with all the means at its disposal, towards the real enemy of the nation, the occupying, murdering, torturing, and plundering enemy of all good things, the enemy concealed in Jerusalem, Baghdad, and Kabul, the enemy who thinks itself the only human race with the right to live, even at the expense of abandoning the others.

* We have people among us who would ‘negotiate’ with such primates. We should prevent them from negotiating our surrender…!

Al Hilali denies supporting terrorism: How about we just call it ‘Jihad’ instead?

* Gee, these filthy kuffars are so simple minded! They can’t even tell the difference between terrorism and jihad! But wait, its only a matter of time before we will rule, and rule we must. Because Islam must dominate and not be dominated…


Sheikh Al Hilali has rejected suggestions he should be deported. (File photo) (AFP)

ABC NEWS online

Sydney Muslim cleric, Sheikh Taj El din Al Hilali, has arrived back in Australia from overseas, insisting he is not a supporter of terrorism.

Speaking at Sydney Airport, Sheikh Al Hilali vowed to assist any investigation into his activities, after allegations he gave money to the proscribed terrorist wing of Hezbollah.

It has been alleged a portion of $70,000 raised by the Australian Lebanese community and spent by Sheikh Al Hilali during a visit to Lebanon, was given to the proscribed terrorist wing of Hezbollah.

Sheikh Al Hilali told reporters he does not support terrorism and rejected suggestions from politicians that he should be deported.

He says he is happy to cooperate with an investigation by Australian Federal Police (AFP) but he dismissed the claims.

“It is unbecoming to accuse a champion of peace of giving money to anyone involved with terrorism – it is silly,” he said.



* Peace in Islam? That will never be. For the Muhammedans Peace only comes when all unbelievers are conquered, killed or forcibly converted.

But here is another bullshit report about the ‘controversial’ Catmeat Sheik:

Sheik the stirrer back in town and ready to talk
By Nick Ralston from AAP

CONTROVERSIAL Islamic cleric Sheik Taj al-Din al-HHlali flew back to Sydney today, saying he is happy to help any investigation into his activities.

Sheik Hilali arrived on an Etihad flight from Abu Dhabi early today and immediately told waiting media he did not give money to terrorist group Hezbollah.

He said he had been a “champion of peace”, who had opposed terrorism for 50 years and the accusations are “silly”.

“I am a man of peace, I don’t support any involvement in terrorism,” Sheik Hilali said.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) are investigating donations allegedly handed out in Lebanon by the mufti to Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah.

Asked if he was willing to speak with the AFP about the allegations, the mufti replied: “Of course, I am ready”.

He said that after visiting four countries in 12 days and was now tired but said he would resolve the issues around him in a “few days”.

The Lebanese Muslim Association (LMA) president Tom Zreika sparked the row over the money, which is now being investigated by the AFP as a possible breach of Australia’s new anti-terrorism laws.

Mr Zreika told The Australian newspaper last month that the mufti had been delaying accounting to the LMA for $47,000 raised for the victims of last year’s Israel-Hezbollah war.

In the same report, an unattributed claim accused the mufti of distributing $12,000 to a radio station run by Sheik Bilal Shaaban, the head of the Islamic Unity Movement in Lebanon, who allegedly has links to radical group Hezbollah.

Sheik Shaaban has since denied personally receiving the cash.

Australian Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty said today It was unlikely Sheik Hilali committed an offence if he gave the money to Hezbollah and it was more an issue of governance.

“We are obviously looking at the circumstances surrounding the donations, but I would caution against any speculation about any offence being committed here,” Mr Keelty said.



“Only Allah can remove me”- sez Al Hilali: 

Only God can ask controversial Sheik Taj al-Din a-l-Hilali to step down as Australia’s mufti, the cleric says.

State and federal politicians have called for Sheik al-Hilali to step down as mufti over controversial comments he has made over the past six months.

Earlier this month, the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) – which suspended the sheik’s salary last year after he likened scantily-clad women to uncovered meat – said his future would be decided by the National Council of Imams by June.

But Sheik al-Hilali, who returned to Australia from the Middle East yesterday, said he respected the council but would not necessarily comply with a vote to remove him as mufti.

“I only answer to God,” Sheik al-Hilali told SBS television tonight.

Sheik al-Hilali also told reporters at Sydney Airport yesterday he would defend his innocence in response to allegations he handed over charity donations for victims of last year’s war in Lebanon to Hassan Nasrallah, from the radical Hezbollah group.

The allegations have sparked an ongoing investigation by the Australian Federal Police (AFP).

Sheik al-Hilali said he never donated money to terrorists while in Lebanon, and that the money was handled by a local cleric.

“I go to poor village in north Lebanon and about 30/35 families, give them donations hand by hand,” he told SBS.

“I do not touch any money in my hand, in Australia or Lebanon.”

He said he rejected terrorism, was a “man of peace” and labelled reports he allegedly gave $12,000 to a radio station run by Sheik Bilal Shaaban – who allegedly has links to radical group Hezbollah – as “propaganda”.

The Lebanese Muslim Association (LMA) president Tom Zreika sparked the row over the money, which is now being investigated by the AFP as a possible breach of Australia’s anti-terrorism laws.

Mr Zreika told The Australian newspaper last month that the mufti had been delaying accounting to the LMA for $45,000 raised for the victims of last year’s Israel-Hezbollah war.

Philippines: Religion of beheadings behead seven Christians, deliver heads to military

Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks…” (Qur’an 47:4) No doubt these unbelievers were fighting the good Muslims and all this head-chopping was completely justified, no?
“Severed heads delivered to military,” from Agence France-Presse,

Al-Qaeda-linked extremists ordered civilians to deliver the severed heads of seven Christians to military outposts in the southern Philippine island of Jolo, the army said today.
The six road workers and a fisherman were kidnapped in separate incidents on Monday by the Abu Sayyaf extremist group amid a military operation against the Muslim movement.

Yesterday afternoon, the driver of a commuter minibus was flagged down and ordered to deliver a sack containing two heads to a military outpost in Parang town.

A few hours later the other five heads turned up at an outpost in Indanan, said regional military spokesman Major Eugene Batara, after being delivered by local residents in another sack.

“We don’t know where the bodies are but the operations against the Abu Sayyaf will continue,” Maj Batara said….

Abu Sayyaf commander Al Bader Parad, who seized the seven men, had earlier demanded a ransom of five million pesos ($125,000) for the hostages but the local government had said it could not pay it….

More than 8000 troops are on the island with orders from President Gloria Arroyo to crush the Abu Sayyaf.

The group has been blamed for a series of bomb attacks in the Philippines in recent years as well as high-profile kidnappings of Christians, foreigners and missionaries.

MANILA, Philippines – Philippine elections are largely a battle of name recall, so Agakhan Sharief has chosen a moniker that will surely capture the attention of voters well beyond his backwater southern province — Osama bin Laden.
Unlike the world’s most-wanted terror suspect, Sharief is known by many in Lanao del Sur province as a peacemaker who has helped broker truces when sporadic clashes have erupted between government troops and Muslim insurgents.

Sporting an 18-inch long beard, turban and a neck scarf similar to that worn by bin Laden in TV images, the 35-year-old Sharief has been campaigning frenziedly for a seat in Lanao’s legislative council in May 14 elections.

Posters bear his real name with the explosive moniker plastered in the middle in big, bold letters: “BIN LADEN.”

He owes his nickname partly to President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Sharief said.

After attending a peace-and-order meeting led by Arroyo in Lanao in 2002, Sharief asked the president to pose for a souvenir picture with him. Somebody in the crowd jokingly told Arroyo that he was known around town by the infamous nickname.

“Oh, I see, the young bin Laden of Mindanao,” Sharief quoted Arroyo as saying. The crowd erupted in laughter and applause.

“When I walked out of that meeting, I had a different name — bin Laden,” Sharief told The Associated Press by telephone.

Maj. Gen. Ben Dolorfino, once the head of Lanao marine forces, said Sharief has connections with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, a large rebel group waging a decades-old rebellion for self-rule, and has helped end some clashes between the insurgents and troops.

“He is the other Osama; he’s a peacemaker,” Dolorfino said.

Meanwhile, Sharief himself lines up with Charlie Sheen and Rosie O’Donnell:

Sharief, a father of nine and husband of a school teacher, has mixed feelings about bin Laden.
While condemning the killing of innocent people in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the U.S., Sharief said he still is not convinced of bin Laden’s involvement. Muslims have the right to struggle for living conditions, he said.

Pali Sheikh Calls on Allah to Kill Every Single Israeli and American

* Gee, why can’t we all just get along? Sure they don’t mean it, right? Why do they hate us, because they don’t have their own state? It must be something we have done, right? How about colonialism, imperialism, racism, you know, all these ism’s we’re guilty of…

* Wait a minute, I’ve got it: Its Global warming, right? In the words of Margaret Beckett  “an act of aggression by the rich against the poor”- she would know, right?
How about we send them billions in aid, think they will love us then?


At a mosque in Sudan, the Acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council, Sheik Ahmad Bahr, calls for Israel and America to be annihilated and for Allah to kill every single Israeli and American citizen. (Courtesy of MEMRI TV.)

Let’s give them lots of money, and a state of their own!


Ahmad Bahr: “You will be victorious” on the face of this planet. You are the masters of the world on the face of this planet. Yes, [the Koran says that] “you will be victorious,” but only “if you are believers.” Allah willing, “you will be victorious,” while America and Israel will be annihilated, Allah willing. I guarantee you that the power of belief and faith is greater than the power of America and Israel. They are cowards, as is said in the Book of Allah: “You shall find them the people most eager to protect their lives.” They are cowards, who are eager for life, while we are eager for death for the sake of Allah. That is why America’s nose was rubbed in the mud in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Somalia, and everywhere. […]

America will be annihilated, while Islam will remain. The Muslims “will be victorious, if you are believers.” Oh Muslims, I guarantee you that the power of Allah is greater than America, by whom many are blinded today. Some people are blinded by the power of America. We say to them that with the might of Allah, with the might of His Messenger, and with the power of Allah, we are stronger than America and Israel. […]

I tell you that we will protect the enterprise of the resistance, because the Zionist enemy understands only the language of force. It does not recognize peace or the agreements. It does not recognize anything, and it understands only the language of force. Our Jihad-fighting Palestinian people salutes its brother, Sudan. […]

The Palestinian woman bids her son farewell, and says to him: “Son, go and don’t be a coward. Go, and fight the Jews.” He bids her farewell and carries out a martyrdom operation. What did this Palestinian woman say when she was asked for her opinion, after the martyrdom of her son? She said: “My son is my own flesh and blood. I love my son, but my love for Allah and His Messenger is greater than my love for my son.” Yes, this is the message of the Palestinian woman, who was over seventy years old – Fatima Al-Najjar. She was over seventy years old, but she blew herself up for the sake of Allah, bringing down many criminal Zionists. […]

Oh Allah, vanquish the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, vanquish the Americans and their supporters. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them all, down to the very last one. Oh Allah, show them a day of darkness. Oh Allah, who sent down His Book, the mover of the clouds, who defeated the enemies of the Prophet – defeat the Jews and the Americans, and bring us victory over them.


Right. So this is what they preach in the mosques on a daily basis. And then you have despicable shills like Karin Laub, Associated Press writer who has a long history of producing Leni Riefenstahl type propaganda for the so-called Palestinians who ‘only want peace’- you simply wonder: How can these people live with themselves?

The EU gives 66 million euros to UN Palestinian refugee agency:

The European Union has transfered 66 million euros (90 million dollars) to the United Nations aid agency for Palestinian refugees, the EU said on Friday.

The money is part of a total of 264 million euros which the EU decided to allocate to the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) over the period between 2007 and 2010.

The deal was signed on Thursday by John Kjaer, head of the European Commission Technical Assistance Office for the West Bank and Gaza Strip, and UNRWA officials at a ceremony in the Qalandiya refugee camp outside Jerusalem.

The funds will pay salaries for UNRWA’s teachers, doctors and social workers, and enable the ongoing support of hundreds of thousands of refugees, the agency said.

The EU has become one of the largest donors to UNRWA, which supports some 4.4 million refugees in the Palestinian territories, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan.

The question of Palestinian refugees is one of the thorniest issues in the Israeli-Arab conflict, as Israel vehemently rejects Palestinian demands to allow their return to lands abandoned during the 1948 war when the Jewish state was founded.


Perhaps they will love us now?

Meanwhile: Thousands of Brits Flee Country

They can’t get out of Londonistan fast enough. They gave that country away. Pity.

Thousands of Britons leave country for Australia, Spain, France AFP
Around 500 Britons a day are leaving the country, with Australia, Spain and France the most popular destinations, although far more new immigrants are arriving, official figures showed Friday.

The most recent statistics show that 380,000 people emigrated from Britain for a year or more, of whom over half were British citizens.

Same in Holland.
