The “nationalist” struggle of the “insurgents” is drumming up business Down Under. “Terrorists recruiting for Iraq in Sydney,” from the Sydney Morning Herald, with thanks to all who sent this in:
SYDNEY supporters of al-Qaeda’s leader in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, have tried to encourage Australian Muslims to join the insurgency and donate money to the cause.
ASIO is investigating the group and the Iraqi ambassador in Canberra has warned the spy agency needs to get a “grip” on the problem. “It looks like there is group in Australia who are supportive, at least vocally, of the Zarqawi people,” Ghanim Taha al-Shibli said.
“You can see them in different places expressing themselves very clearly about what they think.”
The Herald has learned of two separate approaches on behalf of the insurgency, including at least one that is under ASIO investigation.
It involves a man who directly approached several Muslims in Auburn about 12 months ago.
“They said come and fight with the mujahideen,” said someone present at the incident.
