Australian hostage-taker is an Iranian “refugee” who is also a suspect in his wife’s murder

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 15, 2014

Iranian refugee is still holding hostages in Sydney, Australia chocolate shop.

Update:  Hostage crisis is over.  You can find the news everywhere.  Interesting to me is the fact that Fox News is actually identifying the terrorist as a “refugee” in print on the screen. Only a few years ago you would never have seen the word “refugee” used in any negative context.

Remember the Syrian refugees are coming!

Hot off the presses at the UK Daily Mail (thanks to the ever-watchful ‘Pungentpeppers’):

Man Haron Monis – also known as Sheik Haron – has been named as the gunman holding up to 15 people hostage in a Sydney café and is believed to be an Islamic State preacher who is on bail for accessory to murder.

The 49-year-old man lives in southwest Sydney, but is originally from Iran and a self-proclaimed sheik, and also sent hate mail to the families of Australian dead soldiers between 2007 and 2009, according to The Daily Telegraph.

The seige in the Lindt cafe in Martin Place on Monday follows an unsuccessful attempt to have these charges overturned in the High Court on Friday, The Age reported.

Monis received 300 community service hours and a two-year good behaviour bond for the correspondence, which he claims were his version of sympathy cards, sent with the help from his girlfriend Amirah Droudis.

Arriving as a refugee in Australia in 1996, the hostage-taker was charged as an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife – who was allegedly stabbed and set on fire on a flight of stairs in her western Sydney apartment block in November 2013.

He has also faced sexual abuse charges.

Read all about him at the Daily Mail.  See our post last evening when the horrific drama had just begun.

Hey Western world, need any more proof that it’s time to cut off Muslim immigration from Islamic countries (or from anywhere)?  You bring ‘em in and get kicked in the teeth!

Australia: More problems with their Muslim refugees as two Somali girls go to Syria

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 15, 2014

The Hijra is well underway Down Under. Muslims pray in the streets of Lakemba, a Sydney suburb, in this 2013 photo. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-08-08/muslims-pray-in-the-street-outside-lakemba-mosque/4873036

 

Just two days ago (a day before the hostage taking that is still on-going as of this writing) Australians learned that two more Muslim young women, wannabe jihadi brides successfully left Australia to join ISIS.  An earlier Australian jihadist was killed in Syria and her father now blames the Australian government for not being able to stop her!

I say let them go, and never let them back in to any civilized country.

Mohamed Karroum blames the Abbott government for the death of his adult daughter in Syria because they failed to stop her from leaving Australia (they had stopped her twice!). Any way to deport him back to where he came from?

From the Daily Telegraph (hat tip: ‘Pungentpeppers’):

A TEENAGER and her 20-year-old friend have become the first Australian women to “go it alone” to join terrorists in Syria and offer themselves as potential jihadi brides, intelligence agencies believe.

The girls, Hodan, 18 and Hafsa, 20, who are believed to have links with the Somali community, flew out of Sydney in the past fortnight to go overseas and are believed to have lied to their families about why they were travelling. The Sunday Telegraph has chosen not to publish their last names.

While there have been numerous cases of young Australian men being radicalised by Islamic State recruiters and women joining their husbands or boyfriends in the Syrian war zone, this is the first case of young women travelling independently to travel to the war zone.

If they travel to Islamic State’s stronghold in northern Syria, the province of al-Raqqa, the pair will face a jail term of up to 10 years if they ever return to Australia.  [Don’t let them in and save the taxpayers the cost of a trial and incarceration.—ed]

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said fresh reports of teenagers travelling to the region was of great concern.

[….]

Islamic State has issued a worldwide recruitment drive to secure brides for jihadists fighters.

Murdered Australian woman Amira Karroum, who grew up in Brisbane, died after she travelled to Syria with her husband.

Adding insult to Australia’s injury, the father of Amira Karroum wants to sue the government of Australia for letting her leave the country!  It’s just as I said about Sweden yesterday, let them in out of humanitarian zeal and then get kicked in the teeth—when will leaders of first world countries get it?    Here is the recent story at the Daily Telegraph.   Then watch the obnoxious father, Mohamed Karroum, on A Current Affair.

Come on!  We must stop the Hijra (migration) jihad!

Breaking news Australia: Hostages believed to be held by Islamic terrorists, possibly ISIS

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 14, 2014

Merry Christmas: Islamic flag being held in window of chocolate shop by hostages.

Update December 15th (10:26 a.m. Eastern):  Gunman is identified as an Iranian “refugee”, here.

Update December 15th (4:35 a.m. Eastern):  NBC News has the latest: some hostages run from shop, fuzzy image of gunman clearly a Muslim, here.

Update 8 pm Eastern time:  Live streaming at the Daily Telegraph, here.  13 hostages and they believe one gunman.

‘Pungentpeppers’ received an alert within the last hour from the Herald Sun:

40-50 hostages are being held by gunmen in Sydney.  Based on the flag being displayed, the assumption at the moment is that these are Islamic terrorists.

ARMED men are holding 40 to 50 people hostage at a cafe in Martin Place in Sydney.

There are reports that two gunman have taken hostages, some of which are standing with their hands up at the windows in the popular Lindt chocolate shop, which has two or three entrances. There is also a black and white flag being held up in a window. It is believed to be the Black Standard, a jihadist flag.

[….]

There are State Government agencies in the same building and police have shut down traffic in a wide perimeter surrounding the incident. Surrounding buildings are also in lockdown.

Australia, as we have reported on many previous occasions (archive here) has its problems with Muslim immigrants too.

Australia: No more sugar on the table for UNHCR ‘refugees’ in Indonesia!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 19, 2014

If only we had men like these leading America. Scott Morrison (left) and Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott (right).

Maybe some of our Australian readers are not perfectly happy with everything the Abbott government does, but we sure are loving them.

Can you imagine the sputtering and fuming going on at the United Nations over the latest comments by Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison.

Keep in mind as you read this that international refugee law says that asylum seekers are to ask for asylum in the first safe country they reach, thus the mostly Muslim ‘asylum’ seekers should ask for asylum in Indonesia (a Muslim country***).  But, of course, as we see in Europe every day, they are really ‘asylum’ shoppers (aka economic migrants) not truly persecuted people.

From the UK Daily Mail (hat tip: ‘pungentpeppers’):

(Emphasis is mine)

Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison Wednesday said he was “taking the sugar off the table” in announcing that Canberra was slamming the door on UN-registered asylum-seekers in Indonesia.

Morrison said that from July next year, asylum-seekers officially recognised by the United Nations refugee agency in Jakarta would no longer be eligible for resettlement in Australia.

The move, he said, was part of the government’s work to “strip people-smugglers of a product to sell to vulnerable men, women and children” and stop Indonesia being used as a transit lounge.
“We’re taking the sugar off the table. That’s what we’re doing,” he told ABC radio.

“We’re trying to stop people thinking that it’s OK to come into Indonesia and use that as a waiting ground to get to Australia.”

The giant northern neighbour is not a refugee generating country, but has become a key magnet for others seeking to reach Australia, often through treacherous boat journeys that have left hundreds dead.

Since the government came to power last year, its hardline immigration policy — to deny asylum-seekers arriving by boat resettlement in Australia and instead send them to camps in Papua New Guinea and the Pacific state of Nauru — has halted the flow.

The move to shut the door on even those registered with the UNHCR refugee agency in Indonesia is the next step, Morrison said.

“While nine of 10 months of 2014 have passed without a successful people-smuggling venture to Australia, we know smugglers continue to encourage asylum-seekers to travel illegally to Indonesia for the purpose of seeking resettlement in Australia,” he said.

I wonder how Obama felt in the presence of real men in Australia a few days ago?

By the way, if those unaccompanied alien children‘ who traveled through Mexico to the US border were legitimate asylum seekers they would have asked for asylum in Mexico!

See our entire archive on Australia, here.

*** Another element to consider is whether the Muslim government of Indonesia and the UNHCR are helping to advance the Hijra (Islamic migration) by attempting to send more Muslims to non-Muslim countries.

Australia: Sunni (ISIS) believed responsible for attack on Shiite

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 4, 2014

Just a quick note from Down Under—-this is what happens when western countries “welcome” the opposing factions of Islam to live among us.  This conflict has been going on since the year 632 and isn’t going to end any time soon.

A reminder:  We (the US) will soon be bringing in mostly Sunni Muslim Syrians from UN-run camps in the Middle East (5,000 in the pipeline).  I don’t know, but will try to find out, if the majority of Iraqis we are bringing now (among the 20,000 or so in the last year alone) are Sunnis or Shiites (I am guessing mostly Sunni).

 

 

From the UK Daily Mail (hat tip: pungentpeppers):

Fear of revenge attacks follow the shooting of a Shiite Muslim in a drive-by attack in Sydney’s south-west.

Rasoul Al-Musawi was closing up an Islamic prayer centre on Rosedale Avenue is Greenacre when the attack occurred, with friends claiming he was targeted targeted by people claiming to be supporters of Islamic State.

Mr Al-Musawi was shot in the face and shoulder while he was with his wife and four of his children at the Husainiyah Nabi Akram centre.

Mr Al-Musawi’s friend – who did not wish to be named – is a Shiite Muslim and said the shooting in Greenacre was motivated by the sectarian struggle in the Middle East.

‘They called us “Shia dogs” and they threatened to come back down tonight and kill you, shoot you, whatever,’ he told ABC Radio on Monday.

The man said they had taken no notice of the threats made on the night of the shooting – which also included ‘IS lives forever’ - but then he received a phone call saying his friend had been shot.

There is more, and more photos, here.

We have 148 previous posts about Australia, here.  They have their problems with refugees and phony asylum seekers, but at least there is a serious effort underway by the present government to stem the illegal flow to Australia.

NGOs organize Cambodian protesters to oppose Australia refugee deal

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 20, 2014

What! Not “welcoming” refugees in Cambodia? Are these Cambodians racists, xenophobes (maybe even Islamophobes)?

Cambodians protesting in Phnom Penh. We don’t want refugees here! We have our own poor people to take care of! Gee! Where have I heard that before? Reuters photo.

 

If you are arriving here for the first time, please see our ‘Australia category’ for all the background on this.  The gist of it is that Australia has struck a very lucrative deal for the Cambodian government to take some of Australia’s boat people asylum-seekers and resettle them in Cambodia.

Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison royally ticked-off the humanitarian industrial complex when he dared ask—if the asylum seekers want safety, then why not resettle in Cambodia?  Why, he asked, do they have a right to a first world country?   See our recent post.

So here is the latest:  The Leftwing Non-governmental Organizations have ginned-up demonstrations in Phnom Penh where demonstrators demanded that Australia keep the asylum seekers.

You know what strikes me as so funny (sort of) is that no one calls the Cambodians “racists” or “xenophobes” for not wanting the refugees and wanting their own people taken care of first!    Imagine if we took to the streets with placards not wanting to “welcome” refugees!

From Reuters:

Movements, students and religious organizations have joined a growing chorus of opposition to Cambodia’s agreement to resettle refugees from Australia.

Protesters in Cambodia issued a petition on Friday calling for the government to ditch a controversial agreement to resettle refugees redirected from Australia.

[…..]

The march was in response to a controversial deal inked between the Cambodian and Australian governments in late September.

Under the deal, the Cambodian government agreed to take in refugees from Australian detention centers, in exchange for cash from Canberra to cover resettlement costs.

The Australian government sweetened the deal by pledging around US$35 million in development projects over the next four years. While both governments say the deal guarantees refugees their rights under international law, the thousands of protesters who took to the streets of Phnom Penh thought otherwise.

The article goes on to quote protestors who say their own poor people are not being adequately cared-for.

Sure looks like some skilled ‘community organizers’ and outside agitators have moved in to whip up a frenzy!  Funny though that the mainstream media plays right along when the demonstration fits the media’s agenda as well.

Organized by a broad coalition of NGOs, monks, students and others, the protesters delivered a petition condemning the deal to the government, offices of the United Nations and European Union, and embassies of Australia and United States.  [Why in front of the US embassy, is this any of our business?—ed]

It wasn’t long ago that Israelis went to the streets and said they didn’t want refugees there either and all hell broke loose and worldwide criticism followed.  Here is one story from January 2013 about citizens of Tel Aviv demonstrating and wanting African migrants deported, but of course those demonstrators weren’t treated with kid gloves by the media as the Cambodians are.  Funny how that double-standard works, isn’t it?

Remember Cloward and Piven and how to bring on the revolution while hiding behind the shield of good intentions?  We get it! We know that it is all about flooding wealthy western countries with third world impoverished people in order to bring down the West.

Australia’s refugee deal with Cambodia infuriates ‘human rights’ industry activists

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 29, 2014

I meant to write this post last week as the deal was coming to fruition and the human rights gangsters/no borders activists were screaming their heads off, but didn’t get to it and now I see that the deal has been sealed.

Immigration Minister Scott Morrison working to save Australia from the No-borders movement.

Australia is planning to allow some ‘asylum seekers’ who broke into Australia illegally to choose to be resettled in Cambodia.

The Abbott government’s immigration minister Scott Morrison got into hot water some months ago by asking (or stating) this very important point:

Why do we assume that asylum seekers have a right to resettlement in a first-world country?

That is a really good point, if they are seeking freedom from persecution, what is wrong with Cambodia?  Or, are they all really just economic migrants masquerading as persecuted people.

Here is the news from Friday at Yahoo News:

Australia’s refugee resettlement deal with Cambodia is a long-term arrangement that will start small but build over time, Immigration Minister Scott Morrison said.

The deal, announced on Friday and many months in the making, has been condemned by the United Nations’ refugee agency and human rights advocates.

Speaking to the ABC’s AM program, Mr Morrison said four or five refugees will be resettled in Cambodia in the early stages, but only time will tell how many refugees will make the move.

“And it’ll be based on the success of the program over time. And of course it’s a voluntary program,” he said.

He said it was a long-term agreement and Cambodia would determine how many refugees it would accept.

And, here is the story I was going to post last week from  The Australian ( Charities call Cambodia refugee resettlement deal immoral):

Mr Morrison, who has lobbied for developing nations to share a higher burden of the world’s refugees, said the arrangement with Cambodia would be “an ongoing, developing relationship” to build the country’s capacity to offer protection to refugees.

Former Family Court chief justice Alastair Nicholson, speaking on behalf of a coalition of charities, described the proposal as “inappropriate, immoral and likely illegal”.

“It is inappropriate because Cambodia has no capacity within its social sector to take an influx of refugees. Immoral because these vulnerable people are Australia’s responsibility, and while we await the detail, it appears illegal in contravening Australia’s humanitarian and refugee obligations to vulnerable children and families,” Mr Nicholson said.

[….]

 Mr Nicholson’s comments were endorsed by a coalition of charities including UNICEF Australia, Save the Children, Plan International Australia, World Vision, Amnesty International, Refugee Council of Australia, International Detention Coalition and Children’s Rights International.

The proof of progress is in the statistics! 

The Australian government’s hard line position against open borders (against an asylum-seeker free-for-all) has put Australia in the category of only a few advanced countries whose “asylum seeker” numbers have actually gone down.  See the recently released UN report we told you about here.  It can be done, but most Western governments, including the US, have apparently no will to live.

Can you just imagine how ticked-off UNHCR Antonio Guterres must be at Australia!  He likely fears that some other countries might grow a spine!

New UNHCR report on asylum: US is second most desirable nation in the world for asylum seekers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 28, 2014

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees has released his ‘mid-year’ report and it’s no surprise asylum claims are up world-wide.

For clarification, asylum seekers are people who get into another country on their own and then apply for asylum in hopes of being declared legitimate refugees a designation which brings with it access to social services and usually puts them on track for citizenship in their new country.   The Tsarnaev family had been granted asylum and thus were called political refugees.  The no-borders agitators are trying to make the case that the ‘Unaccompanied alien children’ fit this category as well.

A few countries have temporary asylum.  In the US if you are granted asylum you are in!

UNHCR Antonio Guterres, former President of the Socialist International, said that the US has pledged “open-ended” numbers for Syrian refugee resettlement! http://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/2014/06/30/unhcr-says-us-has-pledged-open-ended-resettlement-numbers-for-syrians/

The other track for potential refugees is to be selected by the UN abroad and then to be assigned to a resettlement country—most are assigned to the US!

From the Malta Independent:

A UNHCR report released today shows that the number of people seeking refugee status in industrialized countries continued to climb in the first half of 2014, driven by the wars in Syria and Iraq as well as conflict and instability in Afghanistan, Eritrea and elsewhere.

[….]

We are clearly into an era of growing conflict,” said UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres. “The global humanitarian system is already in great difficulty. The international community needs to prepare their populations for the reality that in the absence of solutions to conflict more and more people are going to need refuge and care in the coming months and years. Unfortunately, it is not clear that the resources and the access to asylum will be available to help them.”

Despite the net overall increase in new claims shown in the report, more than two thirds of these were in just six countries – Germany, the United States, France, Sweden, Turkey and Italy.

Central Europe, in particular Hungary and Poland, as well as Australia saw declines in the numbers of people asking to be accepted as refugees.   [The Abbott government is clearly having success in pushing back the illegal alien boats!—ed]

Go here for the whole report.  The UN is happy to help you replace your population!

Afghan teen shot dead in Australia after stabbing counter-terrorism officers

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 23, 2014

Breaking news from Down Under thanks to ‘pungentpeppers.’ 

It was just a few days ago Australian authorities arrested suspected Jihadists in a massive terror bust, here.  Now this….

From the Herald Sun:

One of many photos from the crime scene

UPDATE: A MUSLIM teen shot dead after he stabbed two counter-terrorism officers was a member of a radical Islamic group that was raided in Melbourne’s southeast two years ago.

Islamic Council of Victoria secretary Ghaith Krayem said members of Al Furqan told him that the 18-year-old Afghani man, described this morning as a “known terror suspect”, hadn’t been a part of the group for a while.

Al Furqan Information Centre in Springvale South was raided by counter-terrorism squads in 2012. It is thought the teenager came to the authorities attention following the raids.

It comes as police say they had “no choice” but to shoot dead the Narre Warren man after he stabbed the two officers outside Endeavour Hills police station last night.

The Joint Counter Terrorism Taskforce had been monitoring the teenager for a number of months, Victoria Police chief commissioner Ken Lay said.

There is a lot more plus photos, here.

Australians foil plans in Muslim migrant community to behead Australian

Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 18, 2014

Daniel Greenfield had the story yesterday, here, and thanks to reader Ed for sending it to us.

Here is Greenfield at Frontpage magazine (with lots of photos):

Islamic terror doesn’t stay in Iraq. It doesn’t stay in Afghanistan. It follows the trail of Muslim migrants and settlers.

And here is the full story at Australia’s ABC News:

Police say a large-scale anti-terrorism raid in Sydney this morning has foiled a plot to “commit violent acts” in Australia, including a plan to behead a member of the public.

More than 800 officers launched the raids as part of Operation Appleby in suburbs across Sydney’s west and north-west, with a further 70 police involved in raids on properties in Brisbane’s south.

Police said 15 people had been detained in Sydney as part of the operation between NSW officers, the Australian Federal Police and ASIO.

Court documents are expected to reveal that the raids, at 25 different properties, were aimed at a cell which planned to behead a member of the public in Sydney.

The documents are expected to say that the plan involved snatching a random member of the public in Sydney, draping them in an Islamic State group (IS) flag and beheading them on camera.

There is more….

Regular readers know that Australia is having the same problem as Europe with illegal migrants—mostly from Muslim countries—attempting to break into the country.

But, they also have a growing Muslim ‘community’ from years past as they opened their doors to “refugees.”  The Abbott government is trying to get it under control now and Australia is one of only a few countries in the world at least seriously attempting to save itself.

See our Australia category (143 previous posts).  See especially this recent post that brought thousands of readers to RRW.

Why do you think it is that in Europe and in Australia, Muslims feel safe carrying signs like this one?
