|Glad we cleared that up|
Another follower of the Religion
of Peace has fallen out of favor with Australian authorities over religious
rights. Supermarket stacker and part-time terrorist-wannabe, Zeky Mallah,
apparently thought that shooting Australians came under the banner of
'religious freedom', and has faced court charged with planning a terrorist attack.
Many people feel their boring life needs a change. And when normal people feel
they need the excitement of making fools of themselves in front of large crowds,
they go and and audition for Australian Idol before taking a lashing from the
judges and slinking back to merely singing in the shower. No-one can come in
and tell you how awful you sound if you lock the door.
But the attention seeking Zeky apparently felt the need to sing for an
undercover federal agent posing as a journalist - and even sold him a video of
himself detailing his plans. Bad call, Zeky - you would have been better off
singing some reworked Cat Stevens songs.
Zeky, quoted several months earlier as insisting he had 'no violent thoughts',
certainly seems to have gotten in touch with his inner anger. Apparently he
was planning to kill two agents in an effort to make Australian authorities go
'softer' on Muslims. And wouldn't that have succeeded!
Zeky is innocent until proven guilty of course, but even so, this sings volumes
about the mindset of some people. Violence is the answer, and even if violence
will quite obviously achieve the opposite of their desired goal, they don't
care. Presumably violence is not a means - it is purpose in itself for many
So the next time you see an angry young man stacking shelves in the local
supermarket with "I SLAM" written on his head-band, do your bit for cultural
integration - encourage him to audition for Australian Idol. It's the way
people in civilized countries make fools of themselves in 2004. This jihad
martyr stuff is just soooo 2001.
