THEY treat us like fools. Police and politicians are telling untruths about what inspired Farhad Jabar to kill.
Those untruths are meant to build trust with Muslim Australians, which we need. But everyone else will wonder: “What other lies are we being told?”
Consider: Iranian-born Jabar went from his mosque to the Parramatta police station where he shot a Buddhist accountant and shouted “Allahu akbar” — Allah is the greatest. In his backpack was a letter reportedly containing Islamist extremist literature.
Police have raided Farhad’s mosque and are checking sermons given there. They are also investigating an alleged ring of sympathisers of the Islamic State, which quotes the Koran to legitimise the murder of nonbelievers.
“Kill the polytheists wherever you find them,” goes one such passage in Islam’s holiest text.
Yet police and ministers of the Turnbull Government still pretend this murder was not religiously inspired, but politically.
“This appears to have been an act of politically motivated violence,” claimed Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop agreed this was “a politically motivated killing”.
Even NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione repeated this deception: “We believe (Farhad’s) actions were politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism.”
Excuse me, but what political party did Farhad represent? Who is this “Allah” — a candidate at the next federal election?
