“You Bewdy!” Is In The Eye Of The Beheader

One of my favorite comedy shows growing up was one called Australia You’re Standing In It. I mention this because these days, Australia really is standing in it. And it’s no joke.

Sydney terror accused Omarjan Azari was allegedly working with Australia’s most senior ISIL member and Underbelly actor Mohammad Baryalei to commit acts of terror, police have said.

A curved sword resembling a scimitar, emblazoned with Arabic script, was recovered from a house searched in this morning’s police raids.

Azari faced Central Local Court today charged with serious terrorism-related offences.

9NEWS understands Azari is accused of plotting to abduct people off the streets and decapitate them in a manner similar to the recent ISIL beheadings of US and UK citizens in Syria.

Azari allegedly intended to wrap the bodies of victims in ISIL flags and upload video of the murders online.

The video would help fuel the ISIL terror campaign which has led to the formation of an international coalition to eliminate the group.


Ironically, Mohammad Baryalei played a paramedic on Underbelly. I guess he wanted to upgrade from television and be coming soon to a theater near you.

But this really underscores that nowhere is safe from Islamic terrorism. To think you are is deluding yourselves.
