From the Bolt Blog:
The handling of the case of Dr Mohamed Haneef, investigated for suspected links to British terrorists, gets even more farcical:
When the case against Haneef collapsed, Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews nevertheless ruled he wouldn’t reinstate the visa of Haneef, who had to leave Australia:
* Not necessarily a bad thing. Why take a chance?
Sure, Haneef is innocent until proven guilty. Yes, he was not proven guilty and that’s why he was released. Does that mean he is not a terrorist? This guy lived for years with the Glasgow perps and is closely related to them, he shares their belief-system and the Koran taught him to hate infidels and Jews and that terror made Muhammad victorious.
Haneef believes that his prophet Muhammad was the perfect man, uswa hasana, al insan al kamil, for all mankind, for all time, to be emulated by every true believer. Muhammad said ‘strike terror in the hearts of the enemy’ and ‘terror made me victorious’- a believing Muhammedan is by nature a terrorist, the Koran teaches to terrorize infidels and Jews.
Haneef knows more, much more than what he wants us to know. The sympathies from Australia’s left are as predictable as they are undeserved from the right. What surprises is that even the perceived ‘right wing’ journo Andrew Bolt gives Dr Haneef kudo’s:
‘…the 60 Minutes interview with Haneef last night makes Haneef seem not just an innocent guy, but a lovely man.’
By ninemsn staff and wires
Mohamed Haneef has been interviewed for the first time since his controversial detention, telling the Nine Network’s 60 Minutes that he is innocent of supporting a terrorist organisation.
Asked if he has ever been a member of a terror organisation, Dr Haneef said “no”, expressing surprise at the prospect that anyone would think he would be linked with terrorism.
* Surely he would tell the truth to a few dumb journo’s from a far left TV channel after keeping his mouth shut under interrogation
It is “not in my nature to ever support such activities”, he said.
* Right. Hitler loved dogs, Mohammed Atta had a father and OBL has a mother who thinks a great deal of him.

The exclusive interview, made before Dr Haneef caught a flight out of Australia, offered an insight into the Indian doctor’s detention without charge and his explanation for the apparently suspicious events that led to his arrest.
“I never imagined, even in the remotest corner of my brain, that I would be labelled [a terrorist],” he said.
“I had my plans prior [to leaving]. These were all circumstantial things,” he said. “All my friends knew I was going … everything here was left over.”
He denied having any knowledge that his cousins in the UK were involved in terrorism or Islamic extremism, and said he felt most for the parents of the accused men.
* Have we ever seen ONE Muhammedan who was not, -somehow- victimized?

Dr Mohamed Haneef, who returned home to pandemonium in India today after a terrorism-related charge against him was dropped, says he was “victimized” by the Australian authorities.
And Dr Haneef’s wife and lawyers lashed out at Australian Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews for his “shocking” remark that the former Gold Coast doctor’s rapid departure from Australia heightened suspicions about him.
Re Dr Mohamed Haneef: Before everyone gets too carried away in defending this fellow who clearly does have some sort of connection to Islamic terrorists who have proved time & again their desire to kill the very same type of people defending him who are so critical of our AFP & Govt for doing their job, let them consider these few points.
1) It was the UK authorities who alerted the AFP to Dr Haneef’s sim card in the first place.
2) Haneef was alerted to this by someone & arranged to have a one way ticket to be purchased in India which costs about the same as a return ticket purchased here. Why do this if he intended to return?
3) The rent on his Gold Coast apartment which bore all the signs of a hasty departure was not paid ahead. This too goes against his statement saying he intended to return there after he had visited his wife and child.
4) He attempted to change his appearance before leaving by shaving off his beard which goes against his religious belief.
5) The reasons for the Federal DPP dropping the charges against Haneef is that there isn’t sufficient evidence at the present time to be sure of a conviction in our Courts It doesn’t mean or imply that a person is innocent, it merely says there is insufficient evidence to obtain a conviction on the basis of; “ Beyond Reasonable Doubt”.
Hannef and his cousins etc were refused entry into Western Australia as Doctors under the sect 457 work permits Visa’s & the visual media are now calling Haneef’s Visa a business Visa.If that was the case he would have had to put up $500,000 and actually prove that he was investing in a business here which of course he wasn’t. I doubt we have heard the end of this matter yet, El-Ninyo will keep an open mind as to guilt or not until all the facts are revealed.
PS: Most of the questions asked of Dr Haneef on 60 Mins did not get a direct answer and the questions that should have been asked were not. No wonder this guy is happy, first class air fares back to India and $150K tax free as well. Shame on you Channel Nine. Not too shabby for a couple of weeks in the pokey and given a heroes welcolm home eh?
