Australia: Police detain two after threat against mosque

November 25, 2012

Two suspected Islamic extremists have been arrested after threatening a mosque in Sydney’s south, witnesses say.

Police said two men are in custody after they conducted an operation in Arncliffe in Sydney’s south on Sunday.

They were unable to immediately provide more details or confirm reports on Twitter of a bomb threat.

Jamal Daoud, of the Social Justice Network, said he was contacted by a member of the Muslim community who said two Wahibi extremists had threatened Shia Muslims gathered to observe the day of Ashura at the Masjid Fatima Al Zahrah mosque.


“And the red ones hate the green ones,
And the green ones hate the yellow ones,
And they all live in little boxes,
Little boxes in their minds…”
