Terrorists-in-Waiting

Last week, Australian Prime Minister John Howard said the following:

“We shouldn’t complacently imagine that there aren’t potentially suicide bombers in this country”

He’s absolutely right, and here’s proof that not all of Australia’s Muslims are peace-loving citizens:

Australian Federal Police and NSW’s Counter-Terrorism Command are investigating book shops allegedly selling extremist Islamic literature.

 

Reports in the Daily Telegraph say the Islamic Bookstore at Lakemba, in Sydney’s south-west, stocks a book titled Defence of the Muslim Lands, which discusses the effectiveness of suicide bombings and has an endorsement from Osama bin Laden on the cover.

 

In nearby Auburn, other such books have been found at the IDCA bookstore and the Islamic Science, Culture and Art Association, the report said.

 

NSW Police Commissioner Ken Moroney today said an investigation was underway to examine the content of the literature being sold, and determine if it breached State or Federal laws.

A spokesman for The Islamic Bookstore at Lakemba declined to comment today, but said the shop hoped to issue a media statement early tomorrow.

 

Comment was being sought from the IDCA bookstore and the Islamic Science, Culture and Art Association
