Melbourne car attacker was recent convert to Islam

 
 
The main stream media has almost completely covered up this story. Immediately after the attack an eye witness posted a video saying that the attacker was screaming out "Allah Akbar" (see here) but the Police told people sharing it on Facebook to take it down. Immediately - before any investigation - they ruled out terrorism and as usual blamed 'mental illness'.
 
Now take a look at this very long report of the attack in the Mail online. If you scroll down a very long way you will find this statement by his close friend:
 'He was a great guy but ice destroyed him. Then he converted to Muslim and changed very quickly. For over a month he's been on edge'
What is not mentioned of course is that many recent converts to Islam with serious personal and other problems carry out Jihadist attacks because they are told that killing infidels guarantees they avoid  going to hell.

Update: The Islamists who sent Alan Henning to his death

UPDATE 16 Jan 2017: Now it turns out that the 'Aid Convey' which ended up with Alan Henning's brutal murder was actually used to smuggle cash to the terrorists.

UPDATE 7 September 2016:  Nearly two years ago I wrote articles (see below) asking why nobody in the main stream media was asking questions about the Islamic 'charity' that was behind the 'aid convey' in which Alan Henning ended up getting his head cut off publicly by ISIS in Syria. It was very clear then that this was a Sunni Islamist terrorist supporting organisation. It now turns out - unsurprisingly as reported in today's Daily Mail - that Henning's mates in the charity were actually ISIS supporters. One of them is now on trial for murdering an Imam (of whom ISIS disapproved).

Article posted 18 November 2014:


I posted the article below (about the terrorist links of the "charity" which Henning was 'delivering aid' for several weeks ago). Now Andrew Gilligan reports in the Telegraph that Majid Freeman, a "charity worker" from Leicester, who was  speaker at the memorial service for Alan Henning, is an open supporter of violent Jihadists (including Al Qaeda) and even sympathises with the ISIS animals who beheaded his 'friend'.
Freeman...has posted on social media apparently justifying Isil, promoting al-Qaeda and expressing sympathy for Syrian jihadist “martyrs”. Freeman was with Mr Henning when he was abducted in Syria last year.  
Majid Freeman's support for violence and jihad are far-reaching and include the following call for violence against Jews in Israel:
On Facebook last week, he said that the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, which was briefly closed by the Israelis at the time, “will be conquered by jihad, not by peace… none will enter it except those who believe in removing the door, not those who search for its key”. 
What is becoming very clear is that - contrary to the lie that the British media is determined to spin - the views of Freeman are not unusual among British Muslims but are in fact completely mainstream. The tweet by Baroness Warsi this morning in response to the massacre of Jews in a synagogue in Jerusalem provide further evidence of this.

Alan Henning and the Hamas-supporting Islamic 'charity' who conned him into going to Syria

Everybody knows that Alan Henning was a decent person who wanted to help suffering people but was brutally slaughtered doing a good deed. What nobody seems to want to know, however, is how he was unaware of the danger he was likely to face and how he ended up as part of a convey for an Islamic charity Al Fatiha Global under investigation for its links to Islamist gunmen in Syria (more here).

A report here on the charity is disturbing as it was actually written just before the convey left with Henning last December. The charity is open about its support for Hamas (see here about its funding of Hamas projects) and its admiration for Al Qaeda terrorists such as Aafia Siddiqui, after whom it named a vehicle. If the BBC and the rest of the British media were not so determined to cover up Islamic terrorism and its supporters in the UK Alan Henning might have decided to spend Christmas with his family instead of travelling with a bunch of terrorist supporters to one of the most dangerous places on earth.

It is also interesting to note how the media is not investigating how it came to be that every one of the Muslims accompanying Alan was released by ISIS - I find it hard to understand how at least the leader of the convoy (Kasim Jameel who, incidentally according to the report below, was arrested in July on child pornography and sexual assault charges) did not insist on staying with Alan until the end, since it was he who talked him into going.

Anyway, much more on this story by Marc Goldberg at Harry's Place whose report includes the following:
According to the Independent Henning travelled to Syria as part of a convoy organised by the group al Fatiha Global. The group denies responsibility for him in a statement on their Facebook page:

 “Whilst Alan was not under the direct responsibility of the charity Al Fatiha Global – as has been suggested widely in the media – he was a valued fellow convoy member, volunteer and friend to us for the duration of the journey until we reached the Turkey-Syria border, where he continued his journey into Syria with his group. He was amongst the first to enter Syria. He was detained shortly after.”

 The Telegraph reported in September that; “Mr Henning was driving an ambulance on behalf of Rochdale Aid 4 Syria, which raised money on behalf of Al-Fatiha Global, a registered charity currently under investigation by the Charity Commission after one of its leaders was photographed with his arms around two hooded fighters carrying machine guns.”

 It seems pretty disingenuous to me for al-Fatiha Global to be disassociating itself from Henning when he was a part of their convoy volunteering for a group raising money for them. On the ground it is quite clear that the al-Fatiha Global people were responsible for this convoy and therefore should bear responsibility for all who travelled with it.

Henning was one of only 8 who continued on into Syria. He was arrested by ISIS half an hour after crossing the Turkish border. The Telegraph article paints a damning picture of Al-Fatiha Global and Aid 4 Syria saying;

“Aid 4 Syria has also used its Facebook page to promote an event called O’Ummah Wake Up And Rise! at which the guest speakers were Zahir Mahmood and Moazzam Begg. Mr Mahmood describes the proscribed terrorist group Hamas as “freedom fighters” while Mr Begg, a former detainee at Guantanamo Bay, has admitted to fighting in Bosnia.

The team leader of the convoy was Kasim Jameel, who was arrested in July on child pornography and sexual assault charges before being released on police bail. The investigation remains active.”

The Pope and the new 'Palestine' Embassy

So, it seems that tomorrow the Pope will formally open the new 'Palestine' Embassy in Vatican City, in a ceremony attended by 'Palestine President' Mahmoud Abbas (fresh from Abbas's latest frenzied round of commemorating and rewarding Arab terrorists for murdering Jews). According to this article (unverified) the Pope says:

"The Holy See and the State of Palestine have notified each other that the procedural requirements for its [the agreement's] entry into force have been fulfilled, under the terms of Article 30 of the same Agreement, Israel will disappear from the "landscape of geography,"
Seems a good time to recall a post I did in May 2015 when the Vatican formally recognized the 'State of Palestine'. As I am sure the Vatican is a bastion of integrity and consistency I look forward therefore to the opening of the Embassy of the Islamic State of Luton in Vatican City.


In shock move Vatican recognizes Islamic State of Luton*


Pope Francis greets Luton Leader Anjem Choudary after Vatican formally recognises Islamic State of Luton today
The Vatican has quickly followed its recognition of the terrorist State of Palestine today by also formally recognising the Islamic State of Luton. In an historic meeting in Rome today with the moderate leader of Luton, the Emir Anjem Choudary, Pope Francis said:
The illegal occupation of Islamic Luton by the imperialist British government continues to be a barrier to world peace. The aspirations of the Muslims of Luton to have their own independent Sharia State - as Emir Choudary has heroically campaigned for years - can no longer be denied.  
By recognising the Islamic State of Luton today the Vatican also brings pressure to bear on the British Government to ensure a peaceful transfer of power to these long down-trodden Muslim people.
Anjum Choudary, in a sensitive and conciliatory speech asserted:
The new Islamic State of Luton demands that the rest of Britain must now submit to Sharia law. No non-Muslim will be harmed providing they convert to Islam. We also demand that the Vatican renounce Catholicism and submit to the Sharia.
President Obama supported the move saying "I have always maintained that no peace in Britain is possible until there is a 2-state solution - a 100% Muslim State of Luton and a 65% non-Muslim State for the rest of Britain. Moroever, the world's 180 million Muslim refugees who originate from just outside Luton must be allowed to return to their ancient homeland (i.e. the rest of Britain).

Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu also welcomed the move but said "I believe that Britain has a right to exist, but Israeli support for Britain's right to exist could not be guaranteed if the illegal occupation of Luton continued"

*Satire, but no more silly than the genuine news from the Vatican.

Reminder to news editors about coverage of convicted Israeli soldier



I can't think of any other explanation of why the western media (which consistently ignores terrorist attacks against Israelis) is not only obsessing over this story but is refusing to provide the context of the original terrorist attack. If this story happened in any other country it would be ignored completely.

Remembering last year's New Year's Day terrorist attack in Tel Aviv

Alon Bakal: one of the victims of Islamic terrorist attack in Tel Aviv 1 Jan 2016
So, just minutes into 2017, Islamic terrorists continue their murderous assault on civilians with the attack at a club in Istanbul. As in the recent Berlin attack, an Israeli tourist (Lian Nassar) was among the fatalities.

Exactly one year ago a similar attack in a bar in Tel Aviv claimed the lives of three Israelis, including family member Alon Bakal. The others were Shimon Ruimi and Amin Shaaban.  As with most terrorist attacks in Israel - unlike identical attacks elsewhere - it was almost completely ignored by the entire Western media and political classes, who believe that Israelis killed by Arabs somehow deserve it. But we honour their memory today.

Obama's final knife in the back to Israel



Hitler's obsession with destroying the Jewish people was so great that, in the last days of the Third Reich - while his armies were crumbling and defeated -  the only part of the Nazi system that continued to function was the industrial-scale murder of the Jews. For example, even while the Russians were driving towards Berlin, Hitler was diverting resources to ensure the final deportation and mass extermination of Hungary's Jews. I'm not a big fan of Hitler comparisons, but it is interesting to note that in the last days of the Obama administration - while his disastrous policies have seen the destruction of much of the Middle East and with the West under daily attack from Islamic terrorists - his energy is concentrated on his anti-Israel obsession with the US's unprecedented and underhand organisation of a resolution of the antisemitic United Nations. And, just as Hitler often chose Jewish festivals to carry out antisemitic laws and massacres, Obama chose to do this on the eve of Chanukah.

Antisemitism versus anti-Zionism revisited

In the light of the current antisemitism row in the UK I have updated this from a previous similar post as many people (including Jewish pundits interviewed) have been making the case that antisemitism (generally considered a 'bad thing') has nothing to do with anti-Zionism (considered a 'good thing' by many 'progressives'). As this chart shows there is clearly absolutely nothing in common.....


Antisemitism

·         Any Israeli success in science and culture
What they have never heard of
The total destruction of Jewish communities in Muslim lands after the establishment of Israel
The total destruction of Jewish communities in Muslim lands after the establishment of Israel
About Jews kille by Arab terrorists
If it really happens then the Jews must have had it coming to them
If it happens at all it is a natural reaction against Zionist crimes
About violence generally
Jews are legitimate targets for violence
Zionist Jews are legitimate targets for violence
Who are their heroes
Hitler, George Galloway, Ken Livingstone, Saddam Hussein, Ahmedinejad and any other bigot you can think of -  because they “stood up to the Jews”
