That comment about cannibals.... hilarious.

and the right to carry a gun without a welfare cheque, priceless.

He's right though folks, everyone I know would "dob in" anyone they suspected of planning a terrorist act. I applauded the conviction of Lodhi here in Australia just recently. If I had known him, I would have called the feds in less than a minute.

Interestingly Piers Ackerman a media "pundit" tried to link Lodhi to Greenvalley mosque because he happened to be arrested near it. His "proof" was that Greenvalley is a known Tableegh Jammat mosque, which he said translates as "propaganda movement" using his insider status to make insidious connections that just did not exist. His translation may be accurate (God knows better than me), but trying to link terrorists with a bunch of guys who knock on muslim's doors telling them that they need to pray in the mosque if they can and that the problems facing muslims today are their own fault is a bit ridiculous. Ackerman is not as stupid as he looks, I am sure that he knew that what he said was untrue.

It was alarmist hype that just cranked up the fears in Australia towards all muslims instead of seeing these fools for the isolated misfits they are. As a rule wahhabi inspired cranks HATE tableegh jammat.
