“Raban Alou, 20, helped 15-year-old Farhad Jabar shoot police accountant Mr Cheng outside the New South Wales Police Headquarters in Parramatta on 2 October 2015.” But “a January 2015 report by the Department of Juvenile Justice” actually “praised Alou for ‘getting more involved in his religion, stopping his cannabis use and disassociating himself from his negative peer group.'”
The Department of Juvenile Justice, like authorities all over the West, assumed that Islam is a force for good, and so Alou’s growing more observant in Islam would mean that he would become a good, solid citizen. Authorities all over the West consistently ignore the fact that jihadis are virtually all deeply observant Muslims. There has been a good deal of misinformation about this, with Islamic apologists claiming that they’re actually ignorant of Islam or non-observant, but there is little, if any, evidence to back this claim. A few years ago some Islamic State jihadis ordered some basic books on Islam from Amazon, and that is just about the sole evidence adduced to show that jihadis are not knowledgeable and devout Muslims. On the other side is a mountain of evidence, that the Islamic State mandated hours of Qur’an study every day, and that numerous jihadis became more observant in Islam before they turned to jihad violence. But the willful ignorance is near-universal.
“‘Beheading in France, 25 dead in suicide bomb. LOL’: Chilling texts of the ISIS terrorist who gave Curtis Cheng’s jihadi killer his gun – and he prayed for his ‘soldier of Allah’ in KFC the next day,” by Charlie Moore, Daily Mail Australia, March 1, 2018:
The ISIS terrorist jailed today for arming the jihadi who killed Curtis Cheng sent chilling texts praising terror attacks just weeks before the atrocity, Daily Mail Australia can reveal.
Raban Alou, 20, helped 15-year-old Farhad Jabar shoot police accountant Mr Cheng outside the New South Wales Police Headquarters in Parramatta on 2 October 2015.
Alou was a member of an ISIS supporters’ WhatsApp group where he posted sick messages praising the terror cell’s recent atrocities.
The group was called ‘The Bricks’ and used the ISIS flag as its icon.
On 27 June, 2015, another member the Bricks Forum posted pictures of Australian Defence Force personnel getting of a bus. Alou replied: ‘Omg. May Allah curse them all and destroy them to pieces.’
On 26 June, 2015, after a spate of ISIS atrocities, Alou wrote: ‘Beheading in France, 25 dead in suicide bomb by IS in shia Kuwait mosque and 37 dead at Tunisia beach. It’s going off. Lol.’
On 27 June, 2015, another member of The Bricks posted pictures of Australian Defence Force personnel getting off a bus.
Alou replied: ‘Omg. May Allah curse them all and destroy them to pieces.’
The chilling messages were revealed in the judge’s sentencing report which detailed Alou’s movements before and after the attack, including how he praised Jabad while getting a KFC with his wife the day after Cheng’s murder.
As the pair watched gruesome CCTV footage of the killing while sitting in their car at the drive-thru in Granville, Alou said: ‘Ah brother you’re a soldier, Oh my god Allahu Akbar, that’s beautiful footage bro, that’s beautiful footage.
‘You actually see it all happen, you see where he is last standing, that’s where he drops,’ he added.
His wife Sharna Perger says: ‘Oh ya Allah my heart you know me I was about to cry I was watching it and I was about to cry.
Alou replies: ‘It makes me so happy man, see how he drops? Did you see how much fight he had in him.’…
On the morning of the attack, Alou spoke with his wife in his car. He said: ‘It’s dangerous stuff, it’s got to be done’ and ‘whatever I do [Allah] will accept it’.
After handing Jabad the gun in the women’s prayer room of the mosque to avoid CCTV, he drove past the Police Headquarters in Parramatta, taking a route which he had not taken before, knowing that the attack was about the happen there.
Jabad shot Cheng in the back of the head at point blank at 4.30pm, before police rushed out of their building and gunned him down.
The report reveals how they found a note in the killer’s pocket saying the purpose of the act was to ‘put terror in your hearts’.
It read: ‘oh you disbelievers!!! Know your security means nothing to us. Know your weapons are nothing compared to what we have, our Lord, the all powerful and the all encompassing.
‘Know that you all are being watched 24/7, while you are asleep, while you are asleep, awake, planning But soon by the will of God the Exalted, your nights will turn into nightmares, your days into hell and you planning is nothing to us!!
‘By the will of Allah have come today to put terror in your hearts. And soon the mujahideen will do the same, by the will of Allah.’
Handwriting analysis found the note was written [by] Jabad’s older sister Shadi Mohammad, 21, who played a major part in radicalising him….
The judge criticised a January 2015 report by the Department of Juvenile Justice which praised Alou for ‘getting more involved in his religion, stopping his cannabis use and disassociating himself from his negative peer group’
Justice Peter Johnson wrote: ‘It seems clear that the change that the Offender was undertaking at that time, based upon his religious views, was a process of increasing radicalisation which saw him becoming involved in the commission of a shocking terrorist act on 2 October 2015.’
