Australia dodges a bullet

"Hundreds of armed police officers and Australian Security Intelligence Organization (ASIO) officials moved on suspected terrorists in the biggest ever counter terrorism raid in the history of Australia, a report said."

Lebanese Muslims and their friends. Much more aggressive and dangerous than most muslims.

Now we have the advantage but who knows for how long?

How many times has it happened here and we weren't told?

The weird thing is the Mus Lebs are good football players and we're watching the finals tonite with women in mus dress cheering for their team. Aussies love good sportsmen and can forgive anything for that!

Dodged a blade, more likely.
Random beheading of a citizen is easier to organise than hijacking a plane and flying it into a skyscraper. And you still get the shocking visuals.
Terrorism on a budget: the new fashion.

Last night, our time, there was another bullet dodged—by the police, not by the apparent jihadist:

“Numan Haider used a small knife to attack an Australian Federal Police officer and a Victorian policeman before he was shot dead with a single shot.
“When Haider was searched he was found to be carrying a larger knife and an Islamic State flag.
“Police believe the plan was to follow instructions from the international terror group Islamic State and behead the officers, cover the bodies in the flag and then take photos to post via the internet.”
