No mention is made of what mosque the attacker attended.
Although the man is under arrest, no name or description has been given, in keeping with modern media policies of not informing the public when a non-white non-Muslim male is the accused.

“The same police station had received terror threats by radical Islamists last year,” Mr Christensen began.
“I wonder how quickly some idiot is going to inanely say this has nothing to do with Islam or talk about a religion of peace or blame those who oppose radical Islam or even Australia as a whole for marginalising some ‘disaffected youth’.”
“How about for once we talk about the problem at hand: the ideology of radical Islamism and its adherents and what we, as a nation, are going to do about it,” he said.When it emerged not long after that the incident was not terrorism-related, Mr Christensen staged a partial backdown, while suggesting the news was surprising given the incident took place in Merrylands. He also used this second statement on the incident to attack the “political and media elite”.“New reports in state that surprisingly for Merrylands, this incident may not have been a terrorist attack as the ABC originally reported it to be,” he said.“News is still rolling in, so we will see.”
