Muslims were so enraged over this arrest that police had to call for reinforcements to hold them back. Think, now: when was the last time you ever heard of Muslims applauding a jihad terror arrest, and thanking the police from saving their community from those who have twisted and hijacked their peaceful religion?
“Syrian terror strikes home as Australian mother arrested and charged with supporting terrorism,” News.com.au, May 5, 2014 (thanks to Sir Chappy):
POLICE had to call in reinforcements after a group of hardline Muslims gathered at a Sydney police station clamouring for the release of a woman later charged with supporting terrorism.
The mother-of-four was arrested as she allegedly tried to board a flight in Sydney carrying cash and equipment — believed to include camouflage gear — for her husband fighting in Syria.
Joint Counter Terrorism detectives stopped the 29-year-old and her four young children as they attempted to board the flight about 8.30pm on Saturday.
A police spokesman said the Brisbane woman was taken to Mascot police station and later charged.
Three search warrants were also executed — two in Sydney and one in Brisbane.
Hardline supporters arrived at the police station after news of the woman’s arrest was posted on social media, with police forced to call for back-up to deal with them.
She was granted strict conditional bail by police and will appear at Downing Centre Local Court on June 2.
“The Brisbane woman was taken to the Mascot police station, where she was charged under the Crimes (Foreign Incursions and Recruitment) Act 1978,” the spokesman said.
“She was charged with supporting incursions into a foreign state with the intention of engaging in hostile activities.”
Sources have confirmed the mother was allegedly carrying an amount of cash and other supplies — believed to include camouflage gear — on behalf of her husband, who is in Syria.
The Al-Risalah Facebook page — a meeting place for young Muslims — yesterday claimed the woman’s passport had been confiscated….
