Facebook on The Eve of Destruction

Huh.

A CLEANING business owner used Facebook to threaten to ”kill all Christians and Jews” and bomb Sydney, police allege.

A big ask.

Police claim that the man arrested, Khaled Zakaria, posted these comments on the Ban the Burka and Sharia for Australia Facebook pages, including: ”There’s going to be a big bang in the City of Sydney on 30th of July, 2011. Watch out. Bang Bang.” July 30 being, of course, the same date upon which the Australian Defence League and the Australian Protectionist Party held an anti-Muslim rally in Martin Place.

Zakaria’s lawyer reckons it was someone else what done it, but Magistrate George Zdenkowski refused bail, saying the protection of the community is at stake.

See : Man accused of Facebook bomb threat, Anne Tarasov, The Sydney Morning Herald, July 31, 2011.

Oddly enough, on the same date (July 30) another threatening message was sent to ‘The Antibogan’ blog from “a user calling himself ‘timmy mcveigh’, using the email ns1488@mail.com”: ‘ns’ presumably meaning either ‘no surrender’ or ‘national socialism’ and ’1488′ being a common numeric used by neo-Nazis (’14′ referring to The 14 Words coined by dead nutzi terrorist David Lane and ’88′ meaning ‘HH’ or Heil Hitler); ‘timmy mcveigh’ being the dead US nutzi responsible for the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, killing 168 people and injuring more than 680.

The blog’s authors claim that the man responsible for gonig to the trouble of sending them this message is a truckie from Bendigo.

Obviously, threats of this kind are commonplace on Facebook, and with more than 750 million active users, this is not surprising. On the other hand, while Mohammedans have been a continuing focus of scrutiny for the police and state security apparatus since 9/11, the massacre in Oslo would seem to suggest that it ain’t just Muslamics what are capable of killing amirite?

    OMG, you do put it on, I love your little spin on these matters. But Mr Slack [B]astard, you might be right about the inevitable. Someone will catch you out one day as no one person is perfect on this mor[t]al coil.

    G’day Justin,

    Your comment doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Nor does it address the contents of my post.

    *shrugs*

    Yeah, @ndy. Stop putting such a bizarre spin on murder, mass murder, genocide and race-hate! You almost seem to think they’re bad things.

    Wait… white people can kill now, too? Now I have to re-evaluate my beliefs. @ndy, you prick.
