Three Australian Sunni Muslims have been convicted of firebombing a Shia mosque in Fawkner, Australia in an ISIS-inspired arson attack.
Abdullah Chaarani, Ahmed Mohamed, and Hatim Moukhaiber were given lengthy prison sentences in the Victorian Supreme Court for their role in attacking the Imam Ali Islamic Centre. Fawkner is a suburb of the Australian city of Melbourne.
Chaarani and Mohamed received 22 years for the actions, with Hatim getting 16. The former two are also accused of plotting a terrorist attack shortly after the mosque burning, that occurred in December 2016, that would target the broader Australian public.
The Shia mosque was almost totally destroyed in the fire, and the men spraypainted “Islamic State” on the building’s walls, leaving little to no doubt about their motives for the arson. The Islamic State has extensively persecuted Shia Muslims in Iraq and Syria, even going so far as to separate Shia Iraqi soldiers from Sunnis before executing the latter.
Tensions between Sunni and Shia Muslims are almost as old as the religion itself, dating back to the 6th century beginnings of the Islamic faith. In recent years and decades, conflict between the Islamic sects have grown in intensity, expanding out of the Middle East to immigrant Islamic communities in the western world.
As mass immigration continues from troubled and conflict-prone regions of the world to countries such as Australia, it’s increasingly likely that centuries-old sectarian blood feuds will find themselves recreated in western cities and towns.
Poland’s Nationalist President Declares Election Victory Over Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger
A victory for European conservatives and nationalists.
Polish President Andrzej Duda declared victory at a campaign rally following the initial exit polls in the nation’s presidential election on Sunday, as exit poll results showed him narrowly leading against Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.
Initial exit polls showed Duda, of the national conservative Law and Justice Party, leading by a slim margin of 50.4% to Trzaskowski’s 49.6%. Final results are expected Monday, but Duda’s campaign is apparently confident enough in their victory to declare triumph in the election.
The Polish election had included a national debate on cultural issues, with Duda accusing Trzaskowski of supporting the introduction of western-style homosexual political movements into Poland. Duda, a continental skeptic of the European Union broadly comparable to Hungary’s Viktor Orban, had described LGBTIA+ ideology as “more destructive” than the Soviet-style Communism many Poles had experienced in the 20th century.
Trzaskowski was also scrutinized for his extensive links to western political elites, having received a scholarship from globalist oligarch George Soros and attending the California Bilderberg Conference.
If Duda’s claim of election night victory holds, his reelection as Polish president will serve as an embarrassment to the bureaucrats of the European Union, potentially forcing them to come to the table and negotiate concessions with Central European leaders such as Duda and Orban who insist upon their national sovereignty.
Duda is thought of as a European ally of President Donald Trump, having been the first global leaders to visit the White House after the coronavirus pandemic. Poland is also one of the few NATO countries to meet their treaty spending commitment, spending more than 2% of its GDP on its armed forces.
“Thank you to all my fellow Poles who voted for me and cast their votes. I want to thank you with all my heart because this turnout shows how much you care about our country,” said Duda at the election rally.
