Crime boss Bilal Hamze gunned down in hail of bullets in Sydney’s CBD, link
Notorious crime figure Bilal Hamze has been shot dead in the heart of Sydney’s CBD overnight in what is police say was a “brutal, execution style murder”.
Hamze, 34, was gunned down in a hail of bullets as he left an establishment on Bridge Street about 10.25pm when unknown persons opened fire from a black vehicle.
Hamze, who knew he had a contract on his head, was the cousin of Brothers 4 Life founder Bassam Hamzy. He is the second member of the family to be shot dead since October.
Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty said the shooting was a “major escalation” in the string of attacks that have rocked Sydney over the past 12 months linked to a dispute between the rival Hamzy and Alameddine clans.
Lebanese Muslims are extremely over-represented in organised and general crime in Sydney (see videos below). In Melbourne’s underworld it’s more mixed, Irish – Italian – Lebanese mostly, in order of when they came to Australia.
The Irish there was nothing that could be done about them coming here. Ireland was a part of Britain, and, whether in chains or freely, Paddy was going to come. Fair enough.
Italians (who are POC) started coming before Federation and the White Australia Policy, when there were no real immigration controls (even Chinamen could come, even back then British leadership didn’t want to be racist), once the Suez Canal was opened in 1869, when (some) Australia bound ships, mostly mailers in the early days, started taking that Mediterranean route, and they stopped at Italian ports and some natives snuck aboard and stowed away, or, if the ship was just passing by Italians would swim out to it and the sailors took pity on them and let them board. Consider some of this speculative, experimental history.
The Lebanese however there is no excuse for, it was a deliberate malicious prime ministerial act of the pompous git and arguably history’s greatest monster John Malcolm Fraser to bring tens of thousands of illiterate clannish Mohammedan farmboy thugs from the Bekaa Valley and dump them into south-west Sydney in the late 1970s, and to a lesser extent northern Melbourne.
We continue to be ruled by these cretinous Liberals, Morrison being just the latest pitiful installment of the dynasty of halfwits and bought and paid for traitors. There will be more, until the whole mess becomes too hard to manage, when the competent people who the place relies on to continue functioning start to get overwhelmed or just check out. You should consider checking out.
