Numan Haider stabbed a police officer and a federal agent. He threatened to kill Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott. He was shot dead in the midst of his jihad attack on the police. And apparently, from their actions at the funeral, his family blames the Australian media. Perhaps we should send them some of our large coterie of pro-jihad journalists, such as Christiane Amanpour, Niraj Warikoo, Jennifer Fermino and Bob Smietana. Then they would put down their stones and show us Islam’s peaceful and tolerant side.
“Family reacts: Anger and grief boil over at mosque,” by Aleks Devic and James Dowling, Herald Sun, September 26, 2014 (thanks to Kenneth):
ANGER boiled over outside a mosque as the body of the shot teen was prepared for burial.
A man threw rocks at media waiting at the Doveton mosque after earlier being seen at Numan Haider’s family home.
The teen terror suspect’s family spoke of their devastation.
Others grieving the loss of Haider lashed out at police for shooting him.
Religious leaders told the Herald Sun Haider was expected to be buried as soon as today, after a Muslim service. More details have emerged about Haider and his family.
The 18-year-old’s two brothers are university students, doing courses in pharmacy and engineering.
Haider, who finished his VCE at Lyndale Secondary College in Dandenong, studied electrotechnology at TAFE.
A friend who visited the family’s Endeavour Hills home said they were overwhelmed by grief. “They are very, very upset and devastated,” the family friend said.
“No one knows what happened. It’s a big shock to their family, and they can’t believe what has happened.
“This family is bright. They are well educated and have good connection to the Afghan families.”
Police visited the home, as did more grieving families who came to offer their support.
There were angry scenes when a member of the Afghan community, on leaving the house, blamed police.
“They should not have shot him — he was 18,” the woman screamed. “If you (the police) can’t protect yourself, how are you going to protect the nation? Did you make mistakes when you were 18?
“If someone makes a mistake, you can’t shoot him.”…
