But other members of the mosque turned them in. Now if they would do the same on a regular basis worldwide when jihadis are plotting attacks on the kuffar, we might be making progress. Sunni-Shi’ite Jihad Comes to Australia: “Men arrested after mosque ‘threat,'” from Nine News, November 25 (thanks to James):
Two suspected Muslim extremists have been arrested at a mosque in Sydney’s south after threats were allegedly made against worshippers.
Police say two men are in custody after an operation at the mosque in Arncliffe, in Sydney’s south, on Sunday afternoon.
They said one man was removed from the mosque around 1.15pm by “members of the congregation” before being arrested by police stationed outside.
Another man was arrested outside the mosque, police told AAP.
They did not specify the nature of the arrests.
A witness at the mosque who does not want to be named, said he saw members of the congregation drag a man wearing Islamic clothing from the building around 1.00pm (AEDT).
The witness said worshippers hauled the man out of the mosque and took him “down the street”, before police arrived and apprehended him.
He said the man appeared to be an Anglo-Saxon Australian and said he thought he may have been a Wahabi extremist.
Jamal Daoud of the Social Justice Network said he was contacted by a member of the Muslim community who said two Wahabi extremists had threatened Shia Muslims gathered to observe the day of Ashura at the Masjid Fatima Al Zahrah mosque.
“We have information that two men were arrested when they attempted attacking masses of Shia Muslims remembering the Ashura in Arncliffe,” Mr Daoud said.
He said the action came after calls for violence against Shia were made on Facebook on Saturday.
Mr Daoud said worshippers at the mosque called police when they became suspicious of attempts by the two men to use their mobile phones.
