“The court heard he showed no remorse for his actions in damaging graves at the Rookwood Cemetery in 2015.”
He showed no remorse because he thinks he did a great deed in the eyes of Allah. Damaging graves, many of which bore crosses (“most of the graves were in the Greek and Ukrainian sections of the cemetery”) shows Islam’s contempt for jahiliyya, the society of the unbelievers, which is regarded as worthless refuse. This vandalism is also a declaration of the victory and supremacy of Islam, and a warning to unbelievers. In the Qur’an, Allah tells Muslims to travel around and look at the ruins of the unbelievers’ societies as a warning about his judgment and power: “Travel through the land and observe how was the end of those before. Most of them were idolaters” (30:42).
Nassem Raad has to pay for the damage he did, but won’t go to prison. As he heard that sentence, how he must have laughed, inwardly, at the foolish infidels.
