It is a tragedy for Australia that in such a time of need the country is led Â by the nose by such a pathetic, cowardly fool from whom you get nothing but Â hot air and “Climate Change”.
Even the New York Times takes notice:
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd said the arrests offered a sobering reminder of the “enduring threat from terrorism at home, here in Australia, as well as overseas.”
Australia has not had a major attack on its territory in recent years. (no idea what that’s supposed to mean. It certainly doesn’t mean we’re safe with more Islamic migration…/ed)
However, a number of people are serving lengthy prison sentences for plots that have been uncovered since the government imposed tough anti-terror laws in the wake of Sept. 11, 2001. Dozens of Australians have been killed in attacks overseas, including three people who were killed in simultaneous suicide bomb attacks at two American hotels in Jakarta, Indonesia, last month.
Andrew Bolt Â is onto it:
If the ABC’s online service were to publish a long piece on the anti-terrorist raids in Melbourne this morning, which one word would it scrupulously omit?
And then there’s this:“I also want to assure the broader Islamic community here in Victoria we understand that the overwhelming and vast majority of the Islamic faith are not terrorists. They do not support terrorism and they have successfully integrated into our community.”
Victorian Police Commissioner Simon Overland has lashed out atÂ The Australian newspaper for putting officers conducting terror raids on Tuesday at serious risk by reporting on the terror raids even before they were carried out.
“Obviously there was reporting of these raids inÂ The Australian newspaper this morning and I am extremely disappointed the details of this operation have been leaked and I will be vigorously pursuing the leak from my end – and I expect the Federal authorities will be doing the same,” Overland said on Tuesday morning.
Mr Overland is most concerned aboutÂ Â “the importance for people not to get carried away with the fact the terror suspects are Muslims. They do not support terrorism and they have successfully integrated into our community.”
