News orgs are currently going – as expected – completely berserk about the new outbreak of the Wuhanic Sniffles on Sydney’s northern beach side, and borders are getting shut all over the country and all the old people are probably going to die soon now but there are two old people who have died, and their names are Maurice and Zoe Antill, aged 87 and 86, and they died not from a bout of The Virus but from being hacked to death in their home in Brisbane, Queensland, by what local paper the Courier Mail is calling a “home grown terrorist”, who is inevitably named Mohamed, full version in all its Arabic splendor Raghe Mohamed Abdi.
22 year old Brisbane born and bred boy Abdi, who is Somali and had gone to John Paul College and probably got a free ride at what is an expensive school, had last year been arrested at Brisbane airport while carrying a one way ticket to his homeland, and police allege he intended to join a group there called “al-Shabaab”, and you’ll be able to guess what “al-Shabaab” is all about by looking at its name – “al-Shabaab”. His passport was confiscated, but he was released on bail, and was thereafter made to wear a GPS tracking device.
He managed to take off that bracelet thing though the other day, and went to the Antill’s nearby to his home, and killed them. Later that day police cornered him on a freeway – he is said to have come at them with a knife while shouting, rather unimaginatively, “Allahu akhbar”, and police sent him off to meet his 72 virgins in heaven.
Unfortunately for Kristina Keneally this cannot be portrayed as a right wing extremist terrorist event, so she will keep quiet about it, and keep waiting, patiently. While our Islamic martyr no doubt had problematic views about the role of women, and almost certainly was not too far gone on Jews, he has a skin complexion problem, and there is no possibility for a George Zimmerman style media airbrushing of this much duskiness. His name, sadly, also just gives the game away.
In the interests of fairness both his lawyer and his father claim that while devout he was not an Islamic radical, that he had suffered a “mental health” episode, and that he had been worn down by all the police attention and the fact that he had had to wear an ankle bracelet for about a year, and that all of this prevented him from playing sport (ankle bracelet) and getting a job (criminal record).
Finally, there is a primary school in inner northern Melbourne which we know on reliable authority has classes which are 90% Somali, so we can look forward to this kind of thing for many years to come. Whether it’s Sudanese or Somali, our masters do know how to pick em.
