Australia Raids Over 'Islamic State Plot to Behead'

Australia raids over 'Islamic State plot to behead'

Police have carried out anti-terror raids in Sydney sparked by intelligence reports that Islamic extremists were planning random killings in Australia.

PM Tony Abbott said a senior Australian Islamic State militant had called for "demonstration killings", reportedly including a public beheading.

The raids, with at least 800 heavily-armed officers, led to 15 arrests.

One man has been charged with planning an attack. Prosecutors said he planned to "gruesomely" execute someone.

Australian media reports said a plot involved beheading a random member of the public after draping them in an Islamic State flag.

Asked about the reports in a press conference, Mr Abbott said: "That's the intelligence we received.''

"Direct exhortations were coming from an Australian who is apparently quite senior in ISIL (Islamic State) to networks of support back in Australia to conduct demonstration killings here in this country."

The news of an alleged plot to publicly behead a random Australian will shock many people here, including the vast majority of this country's long-established moderate Muslim community.

Many Muslims are unhappy with what's going on in Iraq and Syria but would never resort to violence. These raids risk antagonising the broader Islamic community.

But Australia, like many countries including Britain, is worried about the threat from Islamic State, not just abroad but at home. More than a decade on from Australia's support for the US-led war in Iraq, the country finds itself embroiled in a conflict that is far from over.

Tony Abbott this week announced he is sending 600 troops to the Middle East to assist in the fight against Islamic State. Security forces clearly face a battle at home too.

"So this is not just suspicion, this is intent and that's why the police and security agencies decided to act in the way they have."

Mr Abbott did not name the Australian concerned. But local reports say an intercepted phone call involving Mohammad Ali Baryalei, a former Sydney bouncer described as Australia's most senior IS member, and domestic IS supporters triggered the operation.

In recent weeks, IS has released video footage showing three foreign nationals seized in Syria being beheaded.

'Random attacks'

Police say the anti-terror operation was the largest in Australian history.

The raids began early on Thursday, with officers executing 25 search warrants across 12 Sydney suburbs.

One of the arrested men, Omarjan Azari, 22, later appeared in a Sydney court charged with conspiracy to prepare for a terrorist attack.

Prosecutor Michael Allnutt said Mr Azari planned to commit "extremely serious" offences "clearly designed to shock, horrify and terrify'' the public.

Other raids took place in Brisbane. Acting Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin said they were not "directly linked" to the Sydney operation but related to a raid last week on an Islamic centre that led to two men being charged with terrorism offences.


The arrests have been described as Australia's biggest anti-terrorism operation

Police also carried out raids in Brisbane

Last week, Australia raised its terror threat level to high amid concerns of the growing number of Australians "working with, connected to or inspired by" Islamist groups.

Officials say dozens of Australians have gone to fight in the Middle East for jihadist groups such as Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra (also known as the al-Nusra Front).

At least 60 Australians are believed to be fighting with jihadist groups in Syria and northern Iraq, and 15 Australians have been killed so far in these conflicts, including two suicide bombers.

About 100 more Australians are thought to be actively supporting these groups, police say.

Officials are worried about the impact of both returning fighters and supporters of these groups on domestic security.

Australia and foreign fighters:
  • 21 Jul: Officials say Australian suicide bomber behind Iraq blast
  • 05 Aug: New legislation aimed at preventing people going to fight in the Middle East announced
  • 11 Aug: Image emerges of son of Australian fighter holding severed head of Syrian soldier
  • 27 Aug: New counter-terrorism units set up in airports to stop departing fighters
  • 10 Sept: Brisbane Islamic centre raided; two charged with terrorism offences
  • 12 Sept: Australia raises terror threat level
  • 14 Sept: PM Abbott commits 600 troops to fight against IS

It is the first time Australia's threat level has moved from medium to high - the second-highest rank - since the system was introduced in 2003.

"Medium" means an attack could occur. "High" means an attack is likely and "extreme" means an attack is imminent or has occurred.

Australia has also recently committed troops to the fight against Islamic State.

Mr Abbott, who has been spending a week in an indigenous area in northern Australia, is heading back south to see off departing troops.

Re: Australia Raids Over 'Islamic State Plot to Behead'

The biggest Muslim population on earth is roughly 600 kilometres from Australia. That's a concern for the West. Our govt cowtows to this nation. America needs Australia strategically.

Once a religious extremist act occurs here i.e. Beheading or IED there will be no mercy and shit will hit the fan in a big way. Generations will be affected and the West will choke extremists here or there.

I have a Muslim brother. Don't call me biased.

Well, they are giving beards a bad name.

I have a few Muslim friends and they are normal people with no extremist views.

Let that sink in.

Here we have members from said Muslim community wanting to behead people at random (I have actually thought about this happening in the UK) and they dont want to antagonise them further?

How about they sort their own fucking house out then we wouldn't have to bring the hammer down everytime they fuck up?

Or better yet, see how far they can push the non muslim community with this PC bullshit which allows them to get away with shit.

The only reason these dumb fucks were caught is because the messages were intercepted. Whats to say there are people in the UK with similar dreams and are not communicating except for face-to-face?

You cannot stop that random terror. Lee Rigby was a victim of such tactics. We should be glad these people are dumber than rocks.

Beards are currently in fashion here. Be it hipsters or tradesmen. Murder rates have not increased

Re: Australia Raids Over 'Islamic State Plot to Behead'

We will not tollerate this shit happening in Australia. Muslims wanting to cause trouble should fuck off back to their native shit holes and do it there. We let you in and gave you a safe place to live. Don't fuck it up for the muslims that only want peace.
Terror attacks anywhere in Australia will not sit well with the general public and the backlash will make the 2005 Cronulla riot look like a kids party.

P.s. I think you need this to stay motivated.

Some scary stats- And with the newer generations of dubious dimwits coming up, one can only imagine what can happen.

From Emos to muslim extremist in a few decades.

Re: Australia Raids Over 'Islamic State Plot to Behead'

This really scared me today. One of the raids was 5 minutes up the road from me. I'm so glad that Brisbane city is being shut down for the day during the G20 summit because I don't want to be anywhere near the place that day.

These people should have their visas immediately revoked and shipped straight back so they can fight their holy war on their own turf. And NEVER be allowed back again.

I know plenty of lovely muslim people - it is really crappy that these nutty extremists are painting everyone as a threat.

It's only a matter of time till they do carry out an attack on Aussie soil.
