Siege in Melbourne: Global jihadist insurgency hits Australia

Claire LehmannAustralian Contributor

There’s no such thing as a lone wolf. Terrorist attacks are occurring on a weekly basis in Western countries and now this afternoon an explosion occurred in a suburb of Brighton, Melbourne.

Based on early reports as police arrived at the scene, one man was already dead and the suspect involved was holding a woman hostage.

He apparently rang Channel 7 news and said “this is for I.S.,” “this is for Al Qaeda”. Three police officers were shot, and the suspect was subsequently shot dead.

Early reports also suggest the man was known to Australia’s counter terrorism police.

This, one day after the London attacks which killed seven people and injured around 50.

What are we dealing with here? This isn’t the same as the IRA ringing up a government building, giving advanced notice of a bomb, and demanding a specific resolution.

There is no resolution for Islamic extremists. The only point is to kill as many Infidels as possible.

What we're seeing here is not terrorism, it’s a global jihadist insurgency.

Australia isn’t yet at the same point as the UK and European nations but what does it say that this man was known to counter-terrorism police? It means authorities already know who these people are, as they did in Britain.

The last serious terrorist incident in Australia was the Lindt Café siege in 2014. That terrorist was an Iranian refugee, out on bail after being charged with accessory to murder and also having 43 charges of aggravated sexual assault.

Forty-eight hours before the siege an anonymous caller to a terrorist hotline warned authorities that he had pledged allegiance to ISIS on his website but Australia’s intelligence organization had a look and didn’t see an imminent threat of violence.

How many red flags does a person have to raise?

We don’t yet know who the Melbourne terrorist is but, the primary duty of a government is to protect its citizens from attack.

If people feel their government can’t do that, whether out of spinelessness, weakness or political correctness, people will eventually take measures to defend themselves.

Did anyone see what happened in Toronto the other day and in a Toronto courtroom today? A Muslim woman walked into a Canadian Tire store, pledged allegiance to ISIS and started to lunge at people with a knife. The store manager disarmed her, sustaining minor injuries, until the police came. Today, in court, she AGAIN pledged allegiance to ISIS!

http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/toronto-woman-charged-with-assault-uttering-threats-pledges-allegiance-to-isis-in-court-1.3446341

It utterly boggles my mind that she would pledge allegiance to ISIS in a case in which she is the defendant. I can’t help but wonder if she is doing it to prove to her fellow jihadis that Canadian justice is so meek that she will get away with even a public declaration of her loyalty to ISIS.

Assuming that second woman from the left in the sketch is the defendant (and not the interpreter), is it not remarkable that she is covering her entire face except her eyes, despite being at a court appearance which may require the police or witnesses to identify her? Does our system not insist on removing face coverings even for court appearances where identity is central to the charges? Have we so emasculated ourselves that we don’t insist on uncovered faces even in such circumstances? Are we that afraid of causing offense?

Too bad you let the government take all your guns! Little hard to mount a resistance to a leftist tyranny that supports islam assholes when the people are disarmed and the government and criminal terrorist moslims have all guns!

These jihadists are not lone wolves but rather known wolves, because like you stated Claire, they are always known to the police. According to police, they are on the watch list, however how much watching is being done, because somehow they manage to do the dirty deed. Right now there are approx 23K jihadists in the UK, but only about 3K are being watched. Surely they cannot all be born in the UK, so why not deport those born elsewhere back to their hell hole countries. I heard Charles Adler of Chorus Radio rant tonight about Trump tweeting re the Mayor of London & how he does not think Europe is lost. Trump did take the Mayor’s words out of context, however with everything going on in Eutope today, what is Adler looking at?

These rare random lone wolf attacks seem to be getting less rare and random.
commented 2017-06-05 18:25:23 -0400
I do agree that these aren’t disconnected lone wolf attacks. Though I think it’s better to recognize it as a resurgence of fundamental Islam. Let them be called terrorists, it’s vile and accurate. It’s much worse when the media calls them anything but, like Palestinian militants, or freedom fighters.

What I think we should advocate for is for the world to recognize that this is world war III that started with Al-Qaeda’s attack in 2001 – there were attacks previously, but this one drew a global conflict. It’s a war of attrition which makes it low (but escalating) intensity, prolong, and hard to recognize as such. And we are clearly losing.

Good distinction Claire!! Islam has announced war on us. Anyone showing signs of support for Sharia is to be taken prisoner. The koran is to be labeled a ‘political manifesto’, and anyone caught with one to be taken prisoner also!

Tammie..That is a good interpretation… David Wilkerson is no longer with us as he passed away in 2011 but he deciphers/describes the day of the locust perfectly.

Leviticus 2013 – I did not know about the Day of the Locust. Thank you for asking the question in your earlier post.
I already have an in-depth knowledge of the history of Islam; it’s hateful ideology; and the warfare since Mohammad’s time, I didn’t know about the ancient prophecy until now.

I found a short clip, after reading verses associated with the Day of the Locust.

I realized I forgot to add something to my post below. The only exception I see to Western leaders not naming the problem and trying to put forth solutions is President Trump.

This is all by design and it is not a coincidence… This whole effort could only happen with our national elected civil servants being on the same page as the globalists to bring us this.
Has anyone ever heard of “THE DAY OF THE LOCUST
Predicted in the Bible and represented by God’s word this is going to happen but let’s not make it easy for them.

Claire Lehman, excellent report.
How many Western leaders are just waiting for regular citizens to rise up and defend their nation; only to have the government declare this is illegal and mass arrests follow? Not mass arrests of Islamists and terrorists, mass arrests of citizens who cannot wait any longer for their government to act in their best interest and security. The leaders all seem to be following the same script, and, are terribly inept at putting forth actual solutions to the Western invasion. There is no will among the leaders of the non-Islamic world to honestly and decisively act; we have to ask ourselves why…what is really going on?

Castle law
If it’s not legal to defend yourself then the government needs to be held criminally responsible if you get hurt or killed by a criminal element.!!
If the police cannot protect the citizen at this stage of our social development, and if they are not legally liable to do so –  Then It is up to the private citizen to protect himself and his family and his fellow citizens from criminal attack in the immediate absence of police intervention, this is not only constitutionally acceptable, but morally mandatory. 
When seconds count the police are only minutes away. If we can save just ONE life in our effort it has been worthwhile as self defense is not a crime.
Please support castle law and open carry  for responsible citizenship and a safer community.

At least there is a politician in the Free World who sees the actual problem and knows the solution.
“When it comes to reducing the chances of Poland being hit by [Islamist] terror attacks, the only proven method is to not allow in Muslim migrants,” Ryszard Czarnecki told local radio after an attack in London on Saturday killed seven and injured at least 48 others.
Noting the children of Islamic immigrants have been responsible for a large number of ISIS-inspired attacks on European soil, the London-born Law and Justice (PiS) MEP said Poland is “learning from the mistakes” of other nations in the West, and so refuses to “open [its] doors to Islamic migrants.”

The p.c. world has lost all semblance of sanity.

If this were, say, the early 1940’s when Hitler was doing his bit, and a person here publicly and vehemently announced, “I am a Nazi, I love Hitler,I fully support him and his methods and I’m going to do whatever I can, where ever I can to make sure Hitler takes over this country and the entire world.” the guy would have been beaten to a bloody pulp, and hauled to jail only IF he survived.

Minimum, he would darn sure not have been allowed to roam free.

We EXECUTED spies and insurgents during the Second World War – and Nazis did the exact same thing to ours who had infiltrated their territories – was because such “lone wolves” can do insane amounts damage.

The liberals claim there are moderate Muslims, well fine. We’ll give them that. For now.

But anyone freaking shouting from the roof tops, “I am an Islamist, I love ISIS and I fully support them and their methods and I’m going to do whatever I can, where ever I can to make sure ISIS takes over this country and the entire world.”?

If we haven’t got the brains to throw them into the deepest hole we can find until this is over, then we haven’t even freaking got the brains to take care of a Nazi anymore.

The primary duty of all western gov’t IS NOT to protect you and me. Not anymore. It is to demolish your country state to install the totalitarian global gov’t. Why do you think all of the Western countries imported massive numbers of muslims, all are enacting very similar laws to remove free speech, all want to censor the internet, and all enact islamophobia laws, none is taking the measures to deport the enemy soldiers in our cities? Why? In fact, they are bringing more. Everyone better start making plans to protect fight for their own lives, otherwise you will be long dead if you wait for the gov’t.

It would appear that Australian Muslims do not want to be out done by UK Muslims. They are all inbred and have the minds of Children.

I wonder if justins friends feel that there are enough of them in Canada, that they dare go on a Killing rampage. Like keeping up with the Joneses.

Inbreeds with the minds of Idiots.

No western country should ever tolerate this behavior at the expense of its own citizens. It’s shameful that a bunch of foreigners who want everyone to live as though they were throwbacks to the 7th Century would be allowed to inflict their savagery on citizens in western democracies. It is unconscionable.

This is a war against Islamic Jihad.
Jihadists are killing innocent civilians.
Let’s do what was done in WWII:
Ban Sharia laws, including the hijab, just as Nazism and the promotion of Nazism was banned
Jail or expel proponents of radical Islam, just as Nazis and Japanese were interned in WWII
Ban the “promotion of death to non-Muslims, gays, etc”, which means banning the ISIS flag, all Qurans containing those verses
Continue until ISIS and its affiliates all surrender by promising to abandon Jihad against the west
Anything less is surrender.

People mistakenly believe tolerance of fundamental Islam and its terrorism isn’t surrender…IT IS!
