Here's Emma Reynolds, for news.com.au, whose report features some predictable waffle from the "Victoria Police Multi-Faith Council".
"Police Raids in Melbourne's Northern Suburbs Foil Alleged Christmas Day Terror Attack".
'The first person to face Melbourne Magistrates' Court over the alleged failed Christmas terror plot (sic: jihad attack - CM) has been denied bail, according to reports.
'Abdullah Chaarani will be back in court in April after police foiled the alleged planned attack on city landmarks including Federation Square and Flinders Street Station.
And the Cathedral, Ms Reynolds. Why omit mention of the Cathedral, a specifically Christian target? - CM
'Six men and a woman (all of them Muslims - CM) were arrested and five males aged between 20 and 26 (five Muslim men - CM) remain in custody.
'It comes as members of the Victoria Police Multi-Faith Council said they were "united in our shock and condemnation of the alleged planned terrorist acts in the Melbourne CBD.
"These alleged acts were not acts of faith, ethnicity or culture", the group said, in a statement provided by Victoria Police.
And yet... every single one of the plotters is a Muslim. Not a Jew, Christian, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist or atheist amongst them. Only Muslims. And it's only Muslims that have galloped off overseas - hundreds of them - to join the Islamic State. And every single one of the similar assorted mass-murder plots that, in recent years, have also been fortunately foiled, along with a number of successful - and murderous, or near-murderous - attacks, stabbings and shootings - that have taken place, have all been carried out by Muslims. Funny, that. And all those plotted attacks, as well as the successful ones - the murder of Curtis Cheng, the murder of two hapless backpackers - are so very, very similar to all the other attacks that have been carried out, across the first world and the third world, by Muslims, against Infidels, year after year after year. - CM
"They were opposed to the principles of all religions".
Nonsense. They were not opposed at all to the principles of Islam. Had the attack been carried out it would have been perfectly in accord with the principles of Islam as set out in, inter alia, the ninth surah of the Quran, which instructs Muslims to fight the Infidels to the death.
Let's listen to somebody sensible, shall we, instead?
The great Irishman, Conor Cruise O'Brien, writing about Islam, in an article published in the "Independent" on 6th January 1995, when Algeria - having gained its independence from France some decades previously - was being ripped apart by a viciously-murderous war between less observant and more observant Muslims. The article is entitled "The Lesson of Algeria: Islam is Indivisible".
O'Brien opens with these remarks, even more grimly pertinent today than back then: "Fundamentalist Islam" is a misnomer which dulls our perception in a dangerous way. It does so by implying that there is some other kind of Islam, which is well disposed to those who reject the Koran.
'Islam is a universalist, triumphalist and political religion. It claims de jure dominion over all humanity; that is God's [sic: allah's - CM] will. The actual state of affairs, with unbelievers of various sorts dominating most of the world, is a suspension of God's [sic: "allah's"- CM] will, and a scandal to the faithful. The world is divided between the House of Islam, and the House of War, meaning, the rest of us.. For more than two centuries now, the House of War has been in the ascendant, and the House of Islam has been abased. The remedy for this (to Muslims - CM) unnatural and intolerable state of affairs, is Jihad. Jihad is defined as "the religious duty imposed on all Muslims to wage war upon those who do not accept the doctrines of Islam"...What is going on today in the Muslim world is not the advent of some aberrant thing called Islamic fundamentalism but a revival of Islam itself - the real thing - which Western ascendancy and Westernised post-Muslim elites no longer have the capacity to muffle and control. The Jihad is back....".
And a little later in the article, after citing some woozy multifaith meanderings from then-POTUS Bill Clinton, O'Brien remarks tartly, "All the great religions are the same" is the idea. Only, they aren't. The Clintonian world view observes (sic: I think this is a typo or a typesetter's misreading; the right word here is "obscures" - CM) the hard specificity of Islam.
"The Prophet (sic - CM) Mohamed did not offer his followers a chance to live in harmony with their neighbours. He taught them to fight their neighbours, if they were unbelievers, and kill them, or beat them into submission. And it is futile to say of those Muslims who faithfully follow those teachings today, that their actions are not 'intrinsically related to Islam". We are facing an Islamic revival..". Thus Conor Cruise O'Brien, who knew infinitely more about Islam than the well-meaning and ill-informed wafflers who comprise the infidel members (whether secular, Christian, Jewish or even Hindu or Buddhist) of that 'Victoria Police Multi-Faith Council). The Muslim members of the Council are a different kettle of fish, of course. They have got to be lying through their teeth. There is no way they don't know the Verse of the Sword full well, and the details of Mohammed's bloody career. And so, back to events in Australia, 2016, where a plot by a bunch of Muslims, to mass murder Australian infidels on Christmas Day in Melbourne, has been scotched a-borning, by the vigilance of our police, and a bunch of wafflers trying to tell us that it has nothingtodowithIslam. Prepare for a game of buzzword bingo, as you read the next paragraph:
"They were alleged (bzzt! - CM) acts of criminality, that do not reflect the harmonious (bzzt! - CM0 values we collectively (bzzzt! - CM) strive to promote.
"We stand together (bzzt! - CM) for cohesion (bzzt! - CM) and harmony (bzzt! - CM) and are confident that Victoria's multicultural and diverse community (bzzt! Bzzt! dingdingding! and I think my BS detector just maxed out, and broke - CM) will unite (bzzt! - CM) in the face of these challenges (bzzt! - CM) in a positive and peaceful (bzzt! - CM0 way.
Translation: you are not allowed to mention the Muslims, Mohammed, or the jihad doctrine of Islam that jumps out at any Infidel with commonsense who reads the Islamic trilogy or pays even a cursory visit to somewhere like MEMRI. Sit stil, shut up, and pretend that nothing is wrong. - CM
"Anything that disrupts our unity (bzzt! - CM0 only gives strength to those who try to divide us (bzzzt! if I had a dollar for every time I've heard that line in the wake of some bloody jihad terror attack, or fortunately-foiled plotted attack, I'd be a rich woman by nowl and - ever heard of dar al Islam/ dar al Harb, and the doctrine of al wala wa al baraa, or read surah 48.29 of the Quran, you blathering damnfools? - CM) and as such, acts of racism or victimisation (that is, anyone mentioning the jihad doctrine of Islam or the malevolent actions of Mohammed the warlord and daring to publicly remark upon any possible connection between these things and the Mohammedan mobsters just now prevented from mass-murdering Victorian infidels at Christmastime, is an evil racist and Islamophobe; and so is any infidel daring to cast so much as a wary, beady eye upon persons proudly wearing the gang uniform of the Mohammedan Mob - CM) wil not be tolerated."
Translation: be extra specially nice to the Muslims.. or else! - CM
"The suspects, believed to have been inspired by the Islamic State, are all expected to appear in court today, charged with acts in preparation of a terrorist event.
No. Not an 'event'. An ATTACK. Or, to be blunt, a mass-murder, a ritualised, sacralised mass-murder of filthy infidels, in order to please allah and advance the cause of the empire of Islam. - CM
"Four are Australian-born (that is, Australian-born Muslims - CM) with a Lebanese background (how interesting; I seem to recall people getting all huffy, a little while ago, when a politician dared to mentin that, just perhaps, it had been a mistake to admit a lot of Lebanese Muslims into Australia in the late 1970s and 1980s; and yet, had the Lebanese Muslim parents of these young jihad plotters never been allowed to settle in Australia, we would not be having to worry about Lebanese Muslim jihad plotters... - CM) and one is an Australian citizen born in Egypt (that is: an Egyptian Muslim immigrant possessing Australian citizenship, but who should not have been allowed to enter and settle in Australia, in the first place - CM).
'Police will allege they were planning to use improvised explosive devices (just as at the bombing of the Boston Marathon; does anyone remember that? - CM) to kill or injure large numbers of people.
Large numbers of Aussie non-Muslims. - CM
"This is one of the most substantial terrorist plots [to] have been disrupted over the last several years", said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. "This news will be of great concern to all Australians. We congregate in public places for Christmas, for New Year's Eve. It is a time of happiness and joy. These terrorists sought to disrupt it.
Disrupt? No, that's too mild a word. They sought to attack and to destroy it. To assert the supremacy of Islam, and Muslims, over everything and everyone else on earth. - CM
'A major multi-agency operation by Victoria Police, the Australian Federal Police, and teh Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) foiled the alleged (?? - CM) plot.
'The alleged attack was set to include an "explosive event" (that is: a bombing - CM) and could have killed or injured a "substantial" number of people, Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton said in a press conference this morning. "We believe that there was an intention to conduct what we call a multimode attack, possibly on Christmas Day", he said. "The possible locations that we have been working on have been Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, and St Paul's Cathedral.
"We've gained evidence that we believe is of a reconnaissance mission being conducted at that site.
"We believe there was an intention to attack in relation to that area, most likely on Christmas Day."
"He said the alleged attack being planned was going to involve "the use of explosives", and possibly knives and a firearm.
'The landmarks targeted are all in the heart of the city, not far from the Melbourne Cricket Ground, where up to 100, 000 people are due to attend the Boxing Day Test (that is, a cricket match - CM) between Australia and Pakistan.
No Islamosavvy Aussie in Melbourne should be seen anywhere near that cricket match, because of what Muslim Pakistan does to its indigenous non-Muslim minorities. Not while Asia Bibi, a humble Catholic Christian, sits in prison on death row after a screeching accusation of 'blasphemy!' hurled at her by mohammedan females. - CM
"Mr Ashton said police carried out five raids overnight across Melbourne's northwest (which is where most of its Mohammedan colonists are currently located - CM), after a weeks-long investigation, arresting seven people...
Seven Muslims. - CM
'The chief commissioner called the suspects "self-radicalised but certainly inspired by ISIS and ISIS propaganda".
Muslims were carrying out mass-murderous jihadist assaults on non-Muslims long before Islamic State crystallised out of the Sunni Muslim ummah. The attacks of September 11 2001, and those in Madrid and Bali 2002 and London 2005 and Beslan 2004 and Mumbai 2008 and the mass-murderous Muslim assault on the Westgate Mall in Kenya were none of them carried out by persons affiliated with or 'inspired' by Islamic State. But, just like Islamic State, those who carried out the attacks were motivated by the jihad doctrine of Islam, taught in its canonical texts. All a Muslim needs to Go Jihad is to take their Islam fully to heart. Were there no "Islamic State", these Muslim men in Melbourne might well have Gone Jihad just the same. - CM
'Police were still at a property in Meadow Heights this morning, where it believed explosives are being stored in relation to the Christmas terror plot.
'Around 400 officers were involved in the raids.
Good. Despite all the Islamopuffery sloshing around, somebody in Victoria Police and other agencies knows that when you are likely to find yourself dealing with the Mohammedan insta-mob, the thing to do is to go in fast and hard with an ostentatious display of overwhelming force, wielded without hesitation. And so now cue a whining Mohammedan trying to gin up a charge of 'police brutality'... - CM
"A man named Ahmed, 31, told the Herald-Sun that around 30 officers in riot gear stormed his home in Gladstone Park at around 9 pm last night and took one of his brothers, Zak Dabboussi, into custody.
We hear more of Mr Ahmed's whining in another report.
"We've had an investigation that's been running now for a couple of weeks", said Mr Ashton. "The individuals involved in this matter, the subject of that investigation, have been persons of interest for Victoria Police and intelligence agencies now for some period of time. (How long, precisely? Weeks? Months? Years? - CM) They have been people we have been concerned about.
And what put you onto them in the first place, I wonder? - CM
"Over the last fortnight that has accelerated to where we have had to conduct a criminal investigation relating to the formation of what we believe was a terrorist plot. As a result of the investigation, we believe we have neutralised that threat".
There will be others, soon enough. So long as we have 500 000 Muslims - and counting - in Australia, therew ill be other plots, worse plots, a whole swarm of plots, coming thick and fast. - CM
'Mr Turnbull addressed a press conference this morning alongside AFP Commissioner Andrew Colvin and Justice Minister Michael Keenan.
"Islamist terrorism (sic: Jihad - CM) is a global challenge that affects us all", said the Prime Minister, "But we must not be cowed by the terrorism".
Fine words. But the more Muslims we have, the more jihad terrorism (and other sorts of annoyance) we will have. I'd be happier if we just stopped importing Mohammedans and booted out all Mohammedans who don't yet have Aussie citizenship, followed by working out how to readjust our laws so that we can DE-citizen and remove the rest. - CM
'Mr Keenan said the operation marked a "successful disruption of what would have been a horrendous attack, an attack that may have caused very significant casualties".
That would have murdered lots and lots of people. - CM
'He said the alleged terror plotters "had moved very quickly from an intention to a capability, and developed capability, including quite progressed plans".
And what happens when there are multiple plots like this 'on the boil' simultaneously? At some point your ability to keep tabs on them all will be overwhelmed; and a lot of people will be murdered, horribly. - CM
'Mr Colvin said the intent and capability of the suspects was among "the most serious" he had seen. "In terms of events that we have seen over the past few years in Australai, this certainly concerns me more than any other event that I've seen," he said. "We believe that we have removed the bulk of this particular cell, this group".
Not sure, are you? And... there will be others. - CM
'Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said there would be an increased police presence on the streets during the Christmas and New Year period. Mr Andrews said the alleged planned attacks "were not acts of faith" (oh, suuuure they weren't, Mr Andrews; nothing at all to do with surah 9.5, or surah 9.29, or all the other multiple blood-curdlingly vivid jihad verses in the Quran? nothing to do with the bloody example set by Mohammed the warlord? - M), and that "all of us, particularly at this special time of the year, should remember that".
It's nothingtodowithIslam so you're not. allowed. to worry about the Muslims in our midst. You're not allowed to worry about the mosque down the street and what might be preached or plotted there.. You're not allowed to even think about whether the Muslim family in the house next door might be cooking up a bomb in their kitchen and storing unstable explosive materials in the shed in the back yard... - CM
'He thanked the AFP, Victoria Police, and ASIO for foiling the alleged plot.
"What they have been able to foil here, what they have been able to uncover and stop, is a very, very serious matter", he said.
"It goes tot he heart of the security of our state, and it's a timely reminder that threat levels, persons of interest, the counter-terrorism command established by Victoria Police recently, the resources that we provide to Victoria Police, they are all very real and very important. These threats are not notional, they are very real right across our city and state".
But if we hadn't let in thousands and thousands of Mohammedans from the 1970s onwards, we wouldn't have to worry about this sort of threat at all. It would be beyond our borders, not inside the gates. - CM
'Australia's national terrorism threat level was raised to "probable" in September 2014.
"Since then there have been four attacks (carried out by Jihad-minded Muslims - CM), including the murder of a Sydney police employee, and twelve (twelve! - CM) terror attacks have been prevented, according to Australian officials.
Dear reporter: are you casting doubt on the reality of those probable attacks? On the veracity of our officials? Are they making it all up, in order to make Muslims look bad? - CM
'Police have made many arrests and are said to be particularly concerned about the young age and deep radicalisation (sic: murderous zeal - CM) of those detained."
Click on the link and read the story in situ, as there are quite a few pictures, including a very telling picture of a couple of the female Mohammedan camp followers associated with the plotters - swathed in black robes with black niqab, only the eyes peering from a narrow slit in the all-enveloping fabric. NothingtodowithIslam, my foot.
And so to another report from Bridget Davies for the Herald-Sun, this one unquestioningly reproducing and thus giving publicity to some victimhood whining by a Muslim belonging to the family of one of those arrested.
'Police Raids in Melbourne's Northern Suburbs".
'A man (a Muslim man - CM) has claimed that heavily-armed police stormed his Gladstone Park property overnight, "terrorising the whole house" (pfffft - what his brother and company intended to do to unsuspecting Victorian rail commuters, citydwellers and churchgoers was far, far worse - CM), and turning it "upside down" searching for his brother as part of a series of raids across Melbourne's north.
No sympathy, none at all. And in any case, he's probably lying or at best, exaggerating. Mohammedans always cry victim and claim they are being attacked, persecuted, terrorised, whatever, whenever their intended victims fight back or in any other way impede their evil intentions. - CM
'Ahmed, 31, told the Herald-Sun that officers stormed into their house about 9 pm, looking for his younger brother Zac.
"They said it was a stage 2 warrant, and they were after Zac on terror charges", Ahmed said.
I bet you know exactly what your lil bro was up to, and I bet you approved mightily, Mr Ahmed. - CM
'Zac, 21, was at the gym and not home at the time of the raid, he said.
Possibly. But since what he's trying to do is run interference for his brother and for the ummah, I wouldnt trust a word this Ahmed says without attempting to get it independently verified from at least two external sources, preferably Infidels. - CM
"Ahmed claimed Zac had since been taken into custody, but police would not tell him of his brother's whereabouts.
Again: verification needed. - CM
"I know my brother inside out", Ahmed said.
Oh, I bet you do. - CM
"They found nothing, they terrorised the whole house, it's literally upside down".
I'll wait for the police version of events. I hope they had bodycams recording every minute that they spent on those Mohammedan premises. Because ... Muslims lie. And in situations like this they will all scream "police brutality" as loudly as they possibly can. - CM
'Ahmed's eight brothers, one nephew, and two nieces were home at the time of the raid."
Eight brothers. So we have a family of ten boys. Any girls at all? It is rather strange how many Mohammedan families, within the dar al Harb, seem to produce so few daughters, and such a lot of sons.. makes one wonder whether a bit of, er, selection, isn't being quietly practised.. - CM
'It's believed about 30 officers wearing riot gear stormed the house.
Perfectly sensible of those cops, if you think you face the possibility of an armed and dangerous Muslim such as the bloke who just ran over a whole lot of people with a truck and then, in Italy, shot and nearly killed a cop who had asked to see his ID. - CM
"My brother Mohammed was kicked in the temple with a steel cap boot and my six-year-old niece had a machine gun pointed at her face - the kids were terrified", he claimed.
Tell that to the children of Beslan, mate... those who survived. Tell that to Miriam Monsonego, aged 8, in France, who was shot dead by a Muslim jihadist in her own schoolyard. Meanwhile, not a hair on the head of those kids in your family home in Melbourne has been harmed, I'll bet. You're just trying to gin up some sympathy. And... again.. I do hope the cops had cameras rolling the whole time. Go-pro or similar. Because I suspect it might well turn out that everything you've just told the reporter is a lie. - CM
'They were shouting, "On the floor, on the floor"....,.
Because they didn't know whether an armed jihadist might not pop out from behind a door and start shooting, and they didn't want kids and other bystanders killed in crossfire..
There are a few more details about the raids, and the charging of those arrested, in a follow-up article by Bridget Davies and Andrea Hamblin, that appeared in the Herald-Sun and in Brisbane's Courier-Mail.
"Police Raids in Melbourne's Northern Suburbs".
"Three men (three Muslim men - CM) have appeared in court following a series of raids in Melbourne this morning allegedly linked to a Christmas Day terror plot in Melbourne's CBD.
'Abdullah Chaarani faced a brief proceeding before magistrate Kay Robertson.
'Chaarani, dressed in a black Adidas T-shirt and grey Everlast tracksuit pants, casually stretched his neck and nodded to two completely veiled women sitting in the public gallery.
Two women who, in a sane infidel society, would not have been admitted inside the court house unless they took their face-masks off and kept them off. By the way, note the man is wearing casual western dress whereas the females are swathed in traditional Islamic black Slave Rags. And note the correlation between jihad-plotting males and black-clad niqabettes. - CM
'A prosecutor asked for an extended time to prepare the brief because of the large amount of digital material that needed to be processed.
'The 26 year old is facing one charge of preparing for a terrorist act between December 1 and yesterday.
Chaarani did not apply for bail, and was remanded in custody to reappear at the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on April 28.
Keeping him in jug and off the streets. Good . - CM.
'In a separate hearing Hamza Abbas, 21, was remanded by magistrate Tim Bourke until a committal mention date on April 28. He is charged with preparation in planning for a terrorist act.
'Hamza, wearing a grey T-shirt (and ...? - CM) did not apply for bail.
By the way, the fact that these blokes are wearing casual western dress rather than Mohammedan Mob gang uniform, signifies absolutely nothing about their state of jihad-mindedness. - CM
'His lawyer, Jessie Smith, of Stary Norton Halphen, said he needed a nurse to attend to him.
Or, rather, he claimed that he needed a nurse. Was he examined by a - non-Islamic - police doctor, or by a civilian (and non-Muslim) doctor selected by the court, to verify the truth - or otherwise - of this claim? Because.. Mohammedans lie. A lot. - CM
'Ms Smith said he had sustained soft tissue injuries (bruising? - CM) during the police raid on his home - to the face, left back, hip and shoulder.
Resisted arrest, eh? - CM
'Ahmed Mohamed, 24, also faced Mr Bourke charged with the same offence.
'Mr Mohamed appeared to make a book gesture with his hands to the veiled women, who cried throughout his proceeding.
Mohammedan victim theatre. I'm unmoved. They would have ululated with glee, had the attack not been foiled; had their menfolk succeeded in mass-murdering large numbers of Aussie infidels on Christmas Day. - CM
'Seven people have been arrested and five people remain in custody following the raids...".
A bit further down the article we get some reactions from assorted political leaders.
"Opposition leader Matthew Guy urged Victorians to be "constantly vigilant about public safety".
Keep an eye on the mosques. Keep an eye on any identifiable Mohammedans. Keep an eye open for anything that Doesn't Look Right. And if you see anything peculiar, anything at all that worries you.. pass it on to the police. - CM
"At this time of Christmas it is a reminder that our emergency services continue their tireless efforts to keep us safe", he said. "We as a community need to always be aware that there are people who aim to attack our way of life particularly on days of national and religious significance".
That is: there are Muslims among us who will attack us on our national and religious festivals, because those festivals are not Islamic. - CM
"Extremism simply has no place in our society".
Islam, the Ummah, Muslims simply have no place in our society. The presence of large numbers of Muslims in Australia has created a situtation that is, to quote New English Review's Hugh Fitzgerald, much more expensive, unpleasant, and physically dangerous than would be the case without that large-scale presence. - CM
'Residents of a quiet Flemington public housing estate described how up to 60 police descended on their street "like stealth" before barging into one of the houses about 8 pm last night. "They were dead quiet. No sirens, no flashing lights, no nothing" a neighbour who didn't want to be named ( and why, pray, is that? - because he's an Infidel who fears the Muslims might 'get at' him if they find out he's talked to a journalist about the arrests of his jihad-hatching Muslim neighbours? - CM) told the Herald-Sun.
"There were undercover cars blocking all of the exits. The riot SWAT team (Special Operations Group) were even here with their balaclavas and machine guns. It was full-on".
Taking no chances. Good job, cops. I approve. Because when you go to arrest a mohammedan' there's always the chance that a whole swarm of other mohammedans will attack you. - CM
'Another resident said she was "feeling a little bit shaken". "Thank God for the police. They do a great job", she said...
Yes. Despite everything, and despite not being able (or allowed) to honestly name what they are dealing with, they are not doing too badly so far. We've had small-scale attacks that have succeeded, but the big, spectacular plots have all been picked up on, and squashed. I'd be a lot happier, though, if our political and religious leaders were prepared to at least moot the possibility of putting a halt to Muslim immigration; and putting a stop to all further flattery, fawning upon and accommodation of the Mohammedan Mob.
