Of course, they’re also sold openly in the United States and other Western countries. “Secret books of hate on sale,” from AAP, with thanks to all who sent this in:
BOOKS endorsed by Osama bin Laden and discussing the effectiveness of suicide bombings are on sale in Australian bookstores – and authorities say they are powerless to act.
While a Muslim community leader today called for the books to be confiscated, the New South Wales Government said it was unable to enforce a ban.
An investigation by Sydney newspaper The Daily Telegraph found the Islamic Bookstore at Lakemba, in Sydney’s southwest, carried a book titled Defence of the Muslim Lands, which has an endorsement from Osama bin Laden on the cover.
The book, by Sheikh Abdullah Azzam, discusses the effectiveness of suicide bombings….
I discuss this book in detail in Onward Muslim Soldiers.
A spokesman for The Islamic Bookstore at Lakemba today would not to comment on the News Ltd reports it was selling books attacking Western culture and discussing the effectiveness of martyrdom and suicide bombing.
Asked whether the shop intended to continue selling the material, the spokesman said: “We’re not talking to any media … we hope to put out a press release early tomorrow.”
Well, I look forward to seeing that.
