And I hope that the police in Sydney will have backup on call, and more backup, including mounted police, riot police and the dog squads, just in case the Muslims try to riot like they did in central Sydney in September 2012.
Geoff Chambers, reporting in Sydney's Daily Telegraph.
'Police in Sydney to monitor rallies for the prophet Mohammed'.
I observe that the Daily Telegraph has put 'prophet' in lower-case. Good. - CM
'Islamic radical groups (Sunni Muslims who take Islam fully to heart - CM) planning rallies and meetings in Sydney to support the prophet Mohammed have been warned by police they will not tolerate "attempts to cause disharmony".
Translation: "don't even think of rioting, unless you want to end up arrested, and with dog bites into the bargain, like you did in 2012." - CM
"Under the banner of "Our Prophet, Our Honour", radical political group Hizb ut Tahrir (Jihad-incitement-and-recruitment group Hizb ut Tahrir - CM) is promoting a mass rally outside Lakemba train station on Friday night.
Which will, therefore, render that train station and its environs dangerously inhospitable to and indeed unusable by any unfortunate local non-Muslims who might be wanting to travel home by train along that particular line. Why were they given permission to use that locality? - CM
'Pamphlets promoting the event have incorporated the Charlie Hebdo magazine and bear the message, "Muslims in Sydney respond to the ongoing insults levelled at our beloved Prophet Muhammad..".
"Stand together to show we are not phased by these attacks and continue to love and follow his legacy".
For the warped muslim mind, cheeky infdel cartoons poking fun at - or even merely daring to depict - their dead-and-gone warlord and slave-raider = attacks, whereas the gunning down of infidel cartoonists with submachine guns is...perfectly halal, nothing more than what those cartoonists deserved. - CM
'A NSW Police spokesman told the Daily Telegraph they would "not tolerate anyone who attempts to cause disharmony with any community".
"NSW Police are aware of a range of activities and those community members are entitled to express their opinions as long as they are done so in a lawful manner", he said.
What happens, though, when it isn't just about expression of opinions, but involves focused and specific statements of intent, to wit, the overthrow and total destruction of our non-Muslim nation government and its replacement by a Caliphate governed by the sharia, such as Islamic State is proceeding to create in Iraq and Syria? - CM
'Hizb ut Tahrir spokesman Uthman Badar - who has been banned from talking at the Sydney Opera House and the University of Sydney - called on his 10,000 Facebook followers to "support this excellent initiative".
10,000 FB followers, eh? How many of them are living in Australia? "Tiny minority of extremists"....NOT. - CM
'A video emerged this week of senior Hizb-ut-Tahrir member Bilal Merhi calling for Sharia law to replace democracy.
"Eventually, we will bounce back and we will reclaim everything that they have taken from us", Merhi says in the video, which was broadcast on the Seven network.
"But we leave the laws to the secularists, we leave ruling people's affairs to the most corrupt people on the face of this earth".
Corrupt = not-Islamic or else 'insufficiently Islamic". - CM
'The "Our Prophet, Our Honour" movement has been replicated in Kenya, Pakistan and the UK.
"Our Prophet, Our Honour campaign comes to SYDNEY! A massive week of street dawah, raising awareness and other activities, culminating in a united "Stand For the Prophet" on Friday evening in Lakemba", the official page posted.
Once the "call to Islam" has been given - and refused - the Muslim is entitled to proceed to Jihad. One hopes that the authorities in Sydney are aware of this, and ramping up security. - CM
'It is understood activities willl be held in several of Sydney's suburbs to "demonstrate the Muslim community's love for their Prophet".
'Mr Badar also has implemented a ban on Facebook followers using cartoons of the Prophet as their profile phots.
Does this mean that some of his FB followers - Muslims - have actually been doing this? Oh, dear! - CM
'The Stand United for Prophet Muhammad Facebook page has invited more than 2000 to attend the event.
'Supporters have been asked to assemble outside the train station on the Boulevarde.
I hope it rains tomorrow evening. I hope it rains cats and dogs. I have just checked the weather forecast for the relevant area and it says "Medium chance of showers in the afternoon and early evening. The chance of a thunderstorm in the west in the afternoon and early evening". Here's hoping. A good old-fashioned Sydney summer thunderstorm would put a bit of cramp in any plans for outright rioting. - CM
'Self-styled Sheikh Junaid Thorne - who had his Bass Hill home raided by the Australian Federal Police last Thursday - is expected to attend the Prophet rally on Friday night along with senior Hizb ut Tahrir leaders.
I hope AFP and ASIO operatives will be attending in force, also; in plainclothes, and equipped to record everything and everyone present.- CM
'Prime Minister Tony Abbott has described Hizb ut Tahrir as "un-Australian" and "un-Islamic".
Un-Australian? - Yes, in spades.
Un-Islamic? No, these blokes are Muslim to their bootstraps. Thoroughly, purely, fervently Muslim. - CM
'Tough new terror (sic: why not just cut to the chase and call it "anti-Jihad"? - CM) legislation willl be put to parliament by Attorney-General George Brandis in the next few months, looking at banning extremist groups on a list of proscribed organisations.
'Other groups that could make the list is Millatu Ibrahim, which is associated with Thorne, who made inflammatory comments following the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
'Late last year Wassim Doureihi - another firebrand spokesman for Hizb ut-Tahrir - refused to denounce Islamic State terrorists for slaughtering thousands and beheading innocent journalists and aid workers in Iraq and Syria.
'Mr Doureihi - in two interviews given to Sky News and the ABC - refused to answer questions directly, choosing to obfuscate on IS atrocities and the establishment of a Caliphate in Australia.
'Hizb ut Tahrir supports the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate and sharia law, and has been banned in some countries.
It is high time it was banned in Australia. - CM
'Meanwhile in an unrelated incident (unrelated, except insofar as this 'incident' is connected to the Ummah, the Mohammedan Mob, as so many such 'incidents' are - CM) a lawyer has told a court a Greenacre man (that is: a Greenacre-resident Muslim man - CM) charged by counterterrorism police with illegally possessing 50 shotgun shells was not the ammunition's owner.
'Omar Ammouche, 33, was arrested on January 9 and charged with possessing ammunition without a licence and contravening a firearms prohibition order.
'He was granted bail by magistrate Les Mabbutt despite a Joint Counter-Terrorism Team detective telling the court Ammouche was being investigated in connection to two of Australia's most wanted IS (Islamic State) terrorists who are now based in Syria.
And who ought to be stripped of their Australian citizenship, and their passports annulled, so that they may never be able to return. - CM
'Police also allegedly found parts of a firearm barrel on the dining room table, along with the 50 shotgun shells in an Esky in the kitchen, when Ammouche's home was raided."
Aside: for those unfamiliar with Australian English, an "Esky" is a medium-sized insulated container, provided with a handle for ease of carrying, that is usually used to keep perishable foods and liquids cool when travelling or picnicking. It is not normally used for the storage and transportation of ammunition.
Anyway, as regards the main story, the impending massed Mohammedan 'rally', that is, threat display and show of strength, that is going to be held near Lakemba train station tomorrow evening; watch this space.
Post scriptum: the Daily Telegraph permitted Comments. Click on the link and read; some of them are pretty good, such as this one from "Craig", in reply to one Ivan who had proposed "Let's try to hold an anti-muslim rally, and see what happens?" - to wit, "@ Ivan - Stuff the rally. Let's have a referendum. Question 1 - Should those Muslims holding extremist views and their immediate families be allowed to stay in our country? Y/ N. Question 2 - Should the Government cease all immigration from Muslim countries? - Y/N. Question 3 - Should any person leaving Australia to fight with any terrorist organisations be allowed to re-enter Australia? - Y/N."
There were a few Defenders of Islam but they were finding that people had their number, so to speak, and were not about to put up with the usual nonsense and lies. - CM
