The hysteria around the news from Syria created by our media and politicians, has once again inflamed sectarian tension in the streets of Sydney.
Such tensions take me back to the dark days in 2012 and 2013 when Muslim extremist had spread chaos in Australia by leading campaigns of extortion, bullying and assaulting anyone who opposed the Syrian “revolution”.
The media biased reporting on Aleppo, siding with Al-Qaeda terrorists, has once again sent the wrong message in all directions. Such irresponsible reporting has been the driving force behind the recent assaults and threats on community activists and leaders who support the Syrian and Russian anti-terrorism efforts.
I’ve started receiving threats (see one of them attached) from extremist who support terrorists in Aleppo. I’ve also been alerted to other similar threats and verbal assaults on other anti-extremism activist.
Such threats will be reported to the local police station. I have also advised other activists to report all threats and verbal assaults at their local police stations. Many anti-extremist who are fed up with the lack of support by authorities, have decided to take the law into their own hands and take an “eye for eye” approach.
We seriously believe that the lack of action by authorities in cracking down on extremists and the media support for terrorist in Syria, will lead to events that could well get out of hand.
