Australia: More absurdity at plea hearing of convicted jihad plotters in Melbourne
From Australia's ABC, court reporter Peta Carlyon reporting. I cannot find out whether the words used in the ABC headline - 'a proud Australian' are something one of the character witnesses or a lawyer actually said, or whether it's a paraphrase/ summary produced by Ms Carlyon or her editor. In any case, it ranks right up there in sheer absurdity with the line 'a simple man with a simple faith' peddled to us by the lawyer of the plot's ringleader.
'Court told convicted terrorist a proud Australian'
'The Victorian Supreme Court has heard a man (a Muslim man - CM) convicted of planning a terror attack in Sydney was an advocate of Australia's "fair-go" culture.
'Somalian-born Saney Aweys (sic: Somalian-born Muslim Saney Aweys - CM) is one of three men (three Muslim men - CM) convicted last year of plotting an armed terror attack (sic: an armed jihad raid - CM) on the Holsworthy Army Base.
'At a plea hearing today, several witnesses have given character evidence.
I would like to know whether these witnesses were Muslim or non-Muslim. And if they were non-Muslim, one wonders whether any of them - though working with Muslims - have bothered to read the Quran, or other Muslim texts, or to investigate such phenomena as 'taqiyya' , "we grin at some people, though our hearts hate them", and the doctrine of 'al-wala wa' al-baraa', 'loyalty [to Muslims only] and enmity [in thought, but also ideally in word and best of all in deed, toward all non-Muslims qua non-Muslims]' - CM.
'They said he volunteered extensively in a community-based integration program for African refugees in the western suburbs (I wonder whether those refugees were Muslim or non-Muslim? And they were non-Muslim, one may account for it simply by his seizing an opportunity for a spot of da'wa, the Call to Islam - CM) and was an enthusiastic advocate of Australia's "easy-going" and "fair-go" culture.
I'll bet. 'See how stupid and naive and easily-conned these Aussie non-Muslims are...they're a walkover!" - CM.
'But Justice Betty King told his lawyer, that [that] evidence was "entirely inconsistent" with his client's phone-tapped comments played during the trial.
Busted! Justice King, and the jurors, and every other non-Muslim in the court, have just been forced to face the extent of the malevolent duplicity which seems to come to a great many Muslims as naturally as breathing. From a canonical Muslim text, the Sahih al-Bukhari, vol 7, p. 102 - Abu al-Darda [one of Mohammed's companions] said, "(Verily) we smile for some people, while our hearts curse (those same people)". - CM
'In those calls, he joked about Australians being killed in the Jakarta hotel bombings, and [said] that Black Saturday (devastating bushfires that killed more than 100 people in country Victoria in February 2009 - CM) was divine intervention to punish Australians for jailed Muslims.
One wonders whether he counts among those poor dear jailed Muslims, whose jailing by the kuffar he views as a punishable offence to 'allah', not only the two different lots of brutal Muslim gang rapists - one lot Pakistani Muslim, the other lot Lebanese Muslim - whom our justice system caught, tried, and imprisoned, but also assorted Muslim fraudsters, drug pushers and manufacturers and smugglers, armed robbers...and people who, like himself, plotted to carry out mass murderous jihad terror raids, but got caught. - CM
'Justice King told the court [that] a plan to go into an army base and shoot until your guns are empty demonstrates an un-Australian attitude.'
Understatement of the week, or perhaps, of the year. - CM.
