After arresting five Â Muslim men Â who planned an armed terrorist attack on a Sydney army base to further the cause of Islam by killing as many people as possible, Dhimmi in Chief Â Simon Overland finds it necessary to run to the next mosque and assure Muslims that there is nothing to worry about:
Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Simon Overland has visited a Melbourne mosque to assure worshippers they are all Australians and shouldn’t feel like second-class citizens.
Mr Overland went to the 8 Blacks prayer centre in North Melbourne, believed to have been attended by three of the five men charged this week over terrorism offences.
Many Muslims have said they fear reprisals following the counter-terrorist raids in Melbourne on Tuesday that resulted in the five, all of Somali and Lebanese background, being taken into custody.
How nice! Â Simon Overland emulating George W. Bush! Â Remember how good ol’George took his shoes and socks off a day after 9/11 to tell us all that Islam ‘is a religion of peace?’
The Muslims Â of course, are “embarrassed and shocked” that the suspects once attended a mosque that’s home to Australia’s top Muslim cleric, Sheik Fehmi Naji El-Imam. (Sydney Moonbat Herald)
Terrorism plot: suspects in court
Five men being questioned over an alleged terrorist conspiracy had sought a religious ruling to authorise an attack in Australia, a court has heard.
Shereen Hassan, the vice-president of the Islamic Council of Victoria, says Muslims have been shocked by the raids and are calling for calm amid fears of a backlash.
“But we have faith that the overwhelming majority of Australians will not react in this way and remain calm,” she said.
“[We] urge the wider community and the media to respect the privacy of the families concerned.
“The overwhelming majority of Australian Muslims unequivocally condemn all forms of terrorism.”
Mohamed Baaruud from the Somalia Advocacy Action Group says the community cannot believe some Somali Australians have been implicated.
“We are all shocked,” he said.
“This is the last thing we were expecting.”
