Why don’t the Vast Majority of Peaceful Muslims rise up en masse and cast Junaid Thorne out of their mosques? Why is he welcomed in places that everyone assumes reject the version of Islam that incites violence?
“Brother of convicted terrorist preaching in local mosques,” by Alex White, Herald Sun, May 25, 2014:
THE controversial brother of a convicted terrorist is back preaching to scores of supporters in mosques in Melbourne and Brisbane.
Junaid Thorne is linked to a group known as Millatu Ibrahim, which was banned in Europe in 2012.
He delivered a lecture at the Dandenong South mosque on March 8, according to his Facebook page.
The 24-year-old has previously asked businessmen to give money for the jihad.
Mr Thorne has also visited the Al-Furqan Islamic centre in Springvale South, which was raided by counter-terrorism teams in 2012.
The self-proclaimed sheik from Perth is the brother of Shayden Thorne, 25, who was sentenced to 4½ years in a Saudi Arabian prison for having terrorism-related materials on a laptop.
On his tour of Melbourne in March, Mr Thorne is believed to have given three lectures in Narre Warren North, Dandenong and Keysborough.
One photo on the sheik’s Facebook page shows more than 50 supporters at a Melbourne mosque in January.
It is believed he returned on a second tour in March because of the increasing number of people attending….
“Increasing number”? But…but…it’s a Tiny Minority of Extremists!
