Australia: Known wolf, Somali refugee, shot dead in ISIS-inspired attack, by Ann Corcoran 6/6/17
This happened on Sunday and the story seems to just now (late Monday and this morning) be coming to the world’s attention (perhaps the more deadly London Islamic terror attack, also carried out by refugees, simply dwarfed it in the media). A Somali refugee killed one man and took a woman hostage in Melbourne. He was shot dead by police
Here is the New York Times on the news yesterday: MELBOURNE, Australia — The Australian authorities are treating an abduction and a killing here in Melbourne on Monday, which ended with the gunman dead, as a terrorist attack.
The police killed the gunman after he held a woman hostage at an apartment complex in Brighton, one of Melbourne’s wealthiest suburbs. The woman was rescued, and another man was found dead in the lobby, the police said. The authorities did not immediately identify the victims.
The police identified the gunman as Yacqub Khayre, an Australian citizen with a long criminal record who came to the country from Somalia as a child refugee. Graham Ashton, the chief police commissioner for Victoria State, said
Mr. Khayre was known to the police “for a whole range of offending,” including drug and violent crimes and arson. The laugh line in the story is at the end of this paragraph:
Mr. Khayre served a significant amount of prison time and was on parole at the time of the attack, the commissioner said. The gunman was acquitted in an investigation of a terrorism plot in New South Wales several years ago, but since then, he was involved in routine criminal activity, Mr. Ashton said. “There wasn’t anything suggesting he was about to do this.” Continue reading the NYT here.
The Somali refugee had been acquitted on plotting an earlier terror attack, had a long rap sheet and had traveled to Somalia yet his action is a big surprise to the police!
Here is a more dramatic telling of what happened, with much more information about the refugee who thumbed his nose at the country that gave him protection and an opportunity for a good life.
It might be politically incorrect to say, but it is just simply true: If you have Muslim migration to your country, you will get Islamic terrorism at some point in time.
This bit (below) in the Scallywag and Vagabond story was very very interesting and mirrors the huge mistake the UK is making as well. The US is making it too!
If ‘refugees,’ who have sought protection (from persecution) in a western country, return (for a little visit) to the hellhole they supposedly escaped, they should simply not be permitted to return to the good life in western civilization (in Europe, in the UK, in Australia, in America).
Khaye had escaped jail time in a previous foiled attack and went on a trip to Somalia for “religious enlightenment”: At the time prosecutors argued Khayre had travelled to Somalia to look for clerics to give their blessing for the plan.
The man’s legal team argued that he was looking for religious enlightenment and harbored no plan to wage jihad in Australia.
Khayre’s uncle told The Sydney Morning Herald that he believed his nephew’s 2009 trip abroad was when the ‘weapons and military training may have happened.’
It is true, in spite of the Leftwing media campaign to say it isn’t—refugees commit crimes and acts of terror, in Europe, in Australia and in America. Two countries, so far, that refuse refugees from Muslim countries—Poland and Japan—do not have this problem.
“Dumb deal!” - For new readers, one last thing! The Trump Administration (Trump’s DOS and DHS) is on the verge of accepting as many as 1,250 failed asylum seekers (Australia does not want them!), held in detention on offshore islands. They tried to reach Australia by boat and hail from the following countries: Iran, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, Iraq, and Sudan (4 of those countries are on Trump’s original travel ban list). See my Australia category (200 previous posts!) for more on Australia’s Muslim migrant problems and that “dumb deal.”
