As reported by various Aussie news outlets today. St Paul's Anglican Cathedral, Federation Square, and the major Flinders St Railway Station were all going to be attacked, on Christmas Day.
We shall begin with the ABC report, which of course primly refuses to mention the M-word, the J-word, or the I-word. However, the names of three of those up before the court with charges pressed against them, tell the tale regardless.
"Melbourne Terrorist Plot: Three Charged, Two in Custody Over Alleged Christmas Day Attack Plan".
"Alleged". "Allegedly". Those two words seem to pop out like a rash all over every media report on any plotted, attempted, or achieved Muslim jihad attack on Infidels. And me, I would write that headline differently - "Melbourne Jihad Plot: Three Muslim Men Charged, Two in Custody...". - CM
'Police have disrupted a terrorist plot (that is: a Muslim terrorist plot - CM) to detonate improvised explosive devices at locations in central Melbourne, possibly on Christmas Day, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says.
I'd hazard the guess that there's no 'possibly' about the intended date of the attack. Historically, there is a pattern of Muslims attacking non-Muslims on Infidel religious feast days, as well as on politically/ socially significant times - in Australia we have had a foiled Muslim jihad plot to attack people out celebrating Mothers' Day, and a foiled Muslim jihad plot to attack an Anzac Day ceremony. - CM
'Seven people (sic: seven Muslims - CM) were arrested overnight at properties in Flemington, Meadow Heights, and Dallas in Melbourne, over the alleged plot, which police said was inspired by the Islamic State (IS) group.
And, dear ABC reporters, don't you think that a group calling itself "Islamic State" might not just be the tiniest bit associated with Islam? - CM
'Abdullah Chaarani, 26, of Dallas, 21 year old Hamza Abbas of Flemington, and 24 year old Ahmed Mohamad of Meadow Heights have been charged with planning a terrorist attack.
Abdullah. Mohamed. Ahmed. Those telltale names. Those all-too-revealing names that tell us that yet again it's about something bad intended by the Mohammedan Mob. - CM
'The trio appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court and were taken into custody and will return in April.
'Two others remain in custody and will appear in court on Saturday.
'A 24 year old man (sic: I bet he's a Muslim man - CM) from Meadow Heights, a 22 year old man from Campbellfield, a 21 year old man from Flemington, and a 21 year old man from Gladstone Park are the other four who remain in police custody.
The cops are taking no chances. - CM
'A 20 year old woman and a 26 year old man, both from Meadow Heights, were released without charge.'
'Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews described the plot as an "act of eivl", while Victoria Police Commissioner Graham Ashton said police had seized "the makings of an improvised explosive device."
'Speaking at a press conference today, Mr Turnbull said, "Overnight our police and security agencies have disrupted a very substantial terrorist plot.
"Overnight, the Victoria Police, working with the Australian Federal Police and ASIO, have arrested seven persons, five of whom are sitll in custody, searched five premises, and are continuing to search them.
"What they have uncovered is a plot to explode improvised explosive devices in central Melbourne in the area of Federation Square, on or about Christmas Day.
"This is one of the most substantial terrorist plots that have been disrupted over the last several years."...
'Commissioner Ashton said it was believed a number of people (all of them devout Muslims - CM) were intending to carry out an attack involving explosives and other weapons.
"Over the last fortnight .. we have had to conduct a criminal investigation relating to the formation of what we believe was a terrorist plot", he said. "We believe that there was an intention to conduct what we call a multi-mode attack, possibly on Christmas Day."
'Police believe the locations to be targeted include Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, and (unsurprisingly, to those of us who are aware of just how often Muslims violently attack non-Muslim places of worship - CM) St Paul's Cathedral.
St Paul's is Melbourne's Anglican Cathedral. - CM
'Commissioner Ashton said, "We believe [the plot] was going to involve an explosive event, the use of explosives, and we gathered evidence to support that.
"There has also been evidence that we will lead around the possibility of an intention to use other weapons. That could include knives and/ or a firearm.
"Certainly these [people] are self-radicalised, we believe, but inspired by ISIS and ISIS propaganda".
And what, dear Commissioner, inspires ISIS? Have you ever cracked open the Quran, or a translation of the Sira of Ibn Ishaq, to find out just what it is that Muslims are taught to believe, and do, and what sort of model of human behaviour is held up by the Sunnah of the 'prophet' and his 'companions'? - CM
'The five people in custody were expected to face court this afternoon, charged with acts in preparation of a terrorist event, Commissioner Ashton said.
'Commissioner Ashton said four of the five were Australian-born (that is: Australian-born Muslims - CM) with a Lebanese (that is: "Lebanese Arab Muslim" - CM) background.
"The age groups range between 20 and 24 or 25.
Muslim men of military age. - CM
"There is another suspect in this matter who will be charged, that was an Egyptian-born Australian citizen.
That is: "A Muslim from Egypt who was foolishly permitted to enter and settle in this country and even more recklessly foolishly permitted to obtain Australian citizenshp status". The moral of this story is that if our authorities, back in the day, had declined to permit Lebanese Arab Muslims to migrate into and settle within Australia, and if this Muslim from Egypt had similarly been denied entry into Australia, we would not now be put to all the trouble and expense of keeping tabs on these five jihad-minded Muslims, and then of arresting, charging, trying and imprisoning them. No Muslims? - no Jihad plots to worry about. Lots of Muslims? - more and more and more jihad plots, and sooner or later, because there are only so many police and intelligence officers available to watch the rapidly multiplying swarm of suspects, an attack will succeed, instead of being nipped in the bud, as this one was. If we want something like what happened in Paris last year, or in Nice this year, or in Brussels, or in Germany just now, to happen in Australia, all we have to do is go on stupidly importing - and even more stupidly accommodating and flattering and making excuses for - Muslims. - CM
'Premier Daniel Andrews said that there would be an increased police presence at large gatherings in Victoria over the Christmas period.
And think of how much that all costs; money we wouldn't be having to spend at all, if we had never admitted thousands and thousands of Muslims (their ethnicity is pretty much irrelevant) into Australia. Islam is bleeding the west, economically, as well as in other ways. - CM
"This is not an act of faith. What was being planned, what will be led in evidence, what the police will allege, was not an act of faith, not an act of religious observance, it was, instead, in its planning, an act of evil, a criminal act", he said.
My dear Premier, you who are so emphatically insisting hat this planned Muslim mass-murder spree was 'not an act of faith, not an act of religious observance'... have you ever read the Quran? The Sira, the Hadiths? Do you know what kinds of things Mohammed did, said and approved of? And do you know what the Sunnah is, the sacralised example of Mohammed the warlord and his gang of raping, caravan-robbing, murdering, torturing, beheading, assassinating, slave-raiding, terrorist 'Companions'? Winston Churchill called Islam "the religion of blood and war".
Jacques Ellul says of Jihad - the 'struggle' to impose Muslim rule and to impose and enforce the sharia of Islam, that it is an integral part of the religion of Islam, that Islam is "fundamentally warlike". Premier Andrews, you need to understand what Ellul, a sociologist, understood, and what he summed up in a little essay about Jihad that he provided for his friend Bat Yeor's massive study of the effects of Muslim imperialism, "The Decline of Eastern Christianity Under Islam". He writes - "In Islam... jihad is a religious obligation. It forms part of the duties that the believer must fulfil; it is Islam's normal path to expansion. And this is found repeatedly dozens of times in the Koran. Therefore, the believer is not denying the religious message. Quite the reverse, jihad is the way he best obeys it. And the facts which are recorded meticulously and analyzed clearly [by Bat Yeor, in her book] show that the jihad is not a "spiritual war" but a real military war of conquest. It expresses the agreement between the "fundamental book" and the believers' practical strivings....
"...it is most essential to grasp that the jihad is an institution in itself, that is to say, an organic piece of Muslim socieity. As a religious duty, it fits into the religious organization, like pilgrimages, and so on. However, this is not the essential factor, which derives from the division of the world in the (religious) thought of Islam.
"The world, as Bat Yeor brilliantly shows, is divided [by Islam - CM] into two regions: the dar al Islam and the dar al Harb, in other words, the 'domain of Islam' and the "domain of war". The world is no longer divided into nations, peoples, tribes. Rather, they are all located en bloc in the world of war, where war is the only possible relationship with the outside world. The earth belongs to Allah and all its inhabitants must acknowledge this reality; to achieve this goal there is but one method: war.
"War, then, is clearly an institution, not just an incidental or fortuitous institution, but an constituent part of the thought, the organization and the structures of this world. Peace with this world of war is impossible..
"I have greatly stressed the characteristics of this war, because there is so much talk nowadays of the tolerance and fundamental pacifism of Islam, that it is necessary to recall its nature, which is fundamentally warlike!..". -
Indeed. And what would have taken place, Premier Andrews, had our police and ASIO not been 'on the ball', would have been - in Federation Square, in Melbourne's biggest railway station, and in one of Melbourne's most beautiful churches - not some random criminal act, but a deliberately and precisely-targeted and calculated act of war, sacralised Muslim warfare, a ghazi raid intended to weaken, demoralise and terrorise an Infidel society and state, waged against Australian infidels and occasioned, at bottom, by the simple fact that they were Infidels living in a non-Islamic state and practising non-islamic beliefs, laws and customs. These Muslims were setting out to perform a central religious duty of Islam: to wage Jihad fi sabil allah. This had everything to do with their faith, their belief system. They intended to piously imitate the example of the founder of their cult...by butchering the uppity Infidels who offend allah by so audaciously refusing to Submit.
The Premier of Victoria is bad enough, with his ignorant denial that the religious teachings of Islam might have anything at all to do with plots to mass-murder Infidels and attack churches; even worse, is some dhimmi grovelling from Dr Andreas Loewe, the Anglican Dean of Melbourne, as reported in this item written by Rania Spooner, for the (very much Islamophiliac) "Age" of Melbourne.
"Celebrate Christmas Wholeheartedly: Cathedral Unshaken by Melbourne Terror Plot".
'Very Reverend Dr Andreas Loewe, the Anglican Dean of Melbourne and St Paul's [Cathedral], was briefed by senior Victorian police in the early hours of Friday morning, of raids in response to a terrorist plot targeting Melbourne landmarks including the Anglican cathedral.
'The high-ranking police told him the threat had been eliminated.
For the moment. But there will surely be others. There will be jihad plots - and attempted and achieved jihad attacks - so long as there are Muslims living within Australia's gates. Guaranteed. - CM
'He thought of his home country of Germany, where days ago in Berlin a truck had ploughed into Christmas markets, killing 12 people and injuring 48 others (sic: let's rewrite that, shall we? - "where days ago in Berlin a Muslim man deliberately drove a heavy lorry straight into a packed crowd of people at a Christmas market, murdering 12 people and gravely wounding 48 others" - CM) - and the message that had come out of that tragedy.
"We will continue our work and stand for our values, which are the values of reconciliation (tell that to the Copts for whom endless 'reconciliation' meetings held after howling Muslim mobs have committed atrocities upon innocent Copts, mean only that the perpetrators get off scot free and the Copts accept that they must allow themselves, unresistingly, to be pillaged, terrorised, raped and murdered at will by any Muslim who feels like a little vicious fun - CM) the values of peace (sic: by 'peace', Dr Loewe, do you mean, 'abject submission to our future Muslim overlords'? - CM) and promoting positive respectful living together in community (tell that one to the Copts, and to the Yazidis and Assyrian Christians of Iraq and Syria, dear Dean; ask them how well all their years of abject submission, coupled with fawning and flattery and doing whatever the Muslims demand, have helped them win the hearts and minds of the malevolent Mohammedans amongst whom and under whose iron heel they eke out their existence..CM), and those are values of Christmas as well", Dr Loewe said.
Yup, Dr Loewe's message is one of denial and abject, grovelling dhimmitude. - CM
"I would encourage people to celebrate Christmas wholeheartedly, confidently and with great joy, and particularly at this time giving thanks for our police and those working tirelessly to keep us safe."
That, I can endorse, indeed. Thank God for our Infidel law enforcement, in this particular case, doing their job. - CM
'With bolstered security, and the promise of additional police on the streets, the church will throw open its doors as planend on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
'Dr Loewe urged Victorians tempted to point fingers [by this, he means, I assume, those who, like me, have so wickedly noticed the Muslim socio-cultural origins of every single one of the plotters, and the similarity between this and many other fortunately-foiled Muslim plots of mass murder both here and in many, many other countries, not to mention the many attempted and bloodily achieved Muslim acts of mass murder that have taken place in, oh, just the past ten or twenty years in both the first world and the third world, far too many to even begin to enumerate here, and the perfect continuity between what those attackers do, and the example of Mohammed, and the teachings of the Islamic foundation texts and all their most authoritative interpretations, both past and present. - CM) to instead think of peace.
Yeah, that will really help, when the next plot occurs and the next and the next and the next. Or when, which God forbid, there is a plot that succeeds, and people get beheaded or stabbed or blown up or run over in broad daylight in the streets of an Australian city, or in a cathedral, or a shopping centre. Lying down, exposing your neck to the scimitar, and 'thinking of peace' strikes me as a really useful course of action - NOT - when the allahu-akbaring mass murderers and their thousands or millions of willing enablers are on the march. Dear Dean: what will you do, if the jihadis march into your cathedral and prepare to ritually slit your throat in front of the high altar? Will your last words be a command to the congregation 'This has nothing to do with Islam!! Think of peace!" - CM
"St Paul's is one of Melbourne's most iconic religious buildings (one of its biggest and most prominent Christian churches, which is precisely why it was targeted by those who hold Christians to be guilty of the worst crime of all, shirk, 'assigning partners to allah', which is, from the Muslim POV, an appalling crime, worse than murder - CM) a symbol of faith in our city (for Muslims, my dear Dean, it is a symbol of Shirk; it publicly displays the Cross and it rings its bells, both things that are forbidden to Dhimmi Christians in any Christian land subjugated and ruled by Muslims; and so it is anathema to them, an offence against their supremacist sensibilities - CM) and we work very hard to promote a degree of reconciliation between different faith communities in our city", Dr Loewe said.
You don't know much about Islam, Dr Loewe, if you think that Dar al Islam would ever want to be 'reconciled' with Dar al Harb. The most you will get is a temporary - very temporary, and unreliable - truce-'treaty'. You wil get an earful of empty nothings from Muslims who are taught to smile to your face and seethe with hatred toward you, behind your back. - CM
"I believe this may well cast fears in people's hearts (did he really put it like that? - to 'cast fear in people's hearts' is an Islamic, not a Biblical expression - CM) and minds, and may well also point the finger at particular groups (not 'particular groups', just one group - MUSLIMS ! - and to be blunt, given that women in black burkas, only their eyes visible, are prominent amongst the families of the arrested Muslim plotters, I think it's a bit stupid to pretend that this plot was hatched by anyone other than Muslims, Muslims, Muslims - CM) and I would want to encourage the people of Melbourne to enjoy their Christmas celebrations and to promote the values that Christmas stands for".
'He praised police for acting swiftly to cut off a threat that if realized would have been "tragic" and spoke of others, including the victims in Berlin, who had not been so lucky.
"I give thanks for our police forces ensuring that our city can celebrate this Christmas in peace", he said. "An event (sic: rather, ATTACK - CM) like this, which has been averted, if carried out, would have been tragic, but it is something that is a daily reality for Christians in other areas of the world (primarily, "for Christians and all other infidel minorities who live in Muslim-dominated areas of the world" - CM). For me it heightens that sense of connectivity with those communities as well."
Yes, you're being threatend by Muslims right here in Australia, and you would quite likely - if our cops had been less swift, less 'on the ball' - have been killed by Muslims, just like the Copts in Egypt are threatened by Muslims (and frequently attacked and killed), and the Christians in Iraq and Syria and Pakistan and West Papua and, well, in every Muslim land, where their situation like that of other infidels in any Muslim-dominated region is precarious at best, and hell on earth, at worst. The question is: why do you refuse to see and name the source of the aggression, the violence, the plots? Why are you, dear Dean, so intent on pretending that the persecution, the attacks and the plots and the threat we now face (with so many Muslims within the gates, busy hatching plots to kill), have nothing whatsoever to do with Islam, Islam, Islam? Is it 'pointing fingers' to mention the connection between Muslim acts of Jihad, and the Jihad doctrine of Islam? And is it quite beyond the pale to suggest that, just perhaps, we shouldn't import those who will persecute us and attempt to subjugate, 'convert' or mass murder us? - CM
