HICKS “UNJUSTLY TREATED”
... Bill Shorten
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
David Hicks, under laws being introduced now, would be in for some serious jail time. Hicks converted to Islam while in Afghanistan and fought with the Taliban against the Commonwealth. He had met with his hero Osama bin Laden 20 times and was trained in a variety of weapons designed to kill Australians and Americans.
Contrary to his and his wife’s claims, he was not found innocent at all. A decision was set aside in a military jurisdiction due to a technicality and he could still face charges here if retrospectivity was applied to current anti-terror laws.
Hicks (shown here heckling Sen. George Brandis at a human rights ceremony) maintains his admissions were elicited under torture while in Guantanamo Bay but neither he nor his wife can explain the content of his letters to his mother which confirmed his wish to die as a martyr for Islam and jihad.
He wrote among other things, “As a muslim we believe in destiny that when it is my time then so be it. If it is my time that is called martyrdom I will always fight for Islam. Real jihad is possible just like before in the Prophets day where martyrs die with a smile on their faces and their bodies stay smelling of beautiful perfume for weeks after death... one reward I get in being martyred I get to take ten members of my family to heaven who were destined for hell But first I also must be martyred.”
His anti West rants place him firmly in the jihadist camp and every Australian soldier should set aside the time to spit on him.
As for an un-Australian fool like Bill Shorten, he should go back to the AWU where he majored in thuggery, rape and theft.
