Melbourne Terror

The alleged offender, 20/01/2017.

A 26-year-old man has deliberately rammed a car into pedestrians in Melbourne’s CBD today. Three people are confirmed dead, and at least twenty injured, including children. The alleged offender has been arrested and shot by police, and the incident is over.

What we know is that he did donuts at the corner of Flinders Street and Swanston Street, one of the busiest intersections in Melbourne, drove up Swanston Street, before turning down Bourke Street Mall. He was eventually stopped and arrested by police on Bourke Street, somewhere near William Street.

Some media are reporting that the alleged offender is of Greek descent, although they acknowledge that this is not confirmed. Police have said that the incident is related to an earlier stabbing in Windsor. A police spokesman said that the incident is not terrorism-related, and that the alleged offender has a history of family violence, drug abuse and mental health issues.

In the following video from New Zealand website Newshub, a man who claims to be an eyewitness claims, at approximately 3:30, that Middle Eastern music was blaring from the car, and the man was yelling “Allahu Akbar”.

My own reputation, and the reputation of the news organisation I represent, The XYZ, is of one whom spares no time in pointing the finger at Islamic terrorism, and rightly so. But as of yet, I am unprepared to call it. The M.O. of Islamic terrorists is to not waste time, to provide no warning, to attack suddenly and decisively. Instead, the driver did burnouts in the middle of an intersection full of people, with people crowding around providing perfect targets, before, admittedly, deliberately ramming other pedestrians with his car.

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of witnesses to this. More evidence will come out. There were a lot of people at that intersection. If you want to get the real story, don’t watch the MSM. Real people are talking to real people on the internet, and they are bypassing the MSM filter.

It’s your XYZ.

    Did anyone ever find out who drove the gas bottle filled minivan into the Australian Christian Lobby headquarters last month? Total silence on that one. I tried googling and there is no info.

    • Trog

      I too am really suspicious about this and did not believe the official story for one second. Getting a finding from Police 15 minutes into the investigation is just not credible or professional unless there is an overriding reason to do so. And I suspect there is a pretty good one.

    • David Hiscox

      That is a very good question, Journey. The story has been buried.

    • Stinks like a cover up doesn’t it ?
      “not terrorism related” is a favourite phrase of the Police……yeah right !
      ACT police especially, are keystone cops……

    Terrible events!

    It is always suspicious when the Police and MSM can very quickly and authoritatively say what wasn’t the motivation but apparently can’t tell us what the motivation actually was. Same thing happened with the Martin Place siege.

    • David Hiscox

      That is spot on. It would be more accurate to say “we cannot confirm whether or not it is terror related.” It is always P.R.

    • Trog

      And the 1000+ Cologne sexual assaults!!!! 4 days for police/msm to admit to and “identify” a huge, concerted, planned, criminal attack by immigrant men on vulnerable revellers.

      Not to say this isn’t just some nutter (likely is) but how can you possibly rule out or dismiss anything like this nowadays without first checking computer usage and contacts in some little detail. Bleedingly obvious, simple incompetence or intended deceit to announce any unequivocal verdict beforehand surely?

      Not to mention dangerous, a dereliction of duty and possibly liable. And, hmmmm…they haven’t released his identity yet?????

      I wonder.

    Every time I hear of an incidence of violence like this my first though is “I hope it is not Muslim Terrorism”. The MSM starve us of relevant information, quite deliberately seeking to avoid any mention of race, skin colour or religion in reporting crimes. This causes many to speculate along the lines that the lack of detail means the thought police are at work. Too often, though not always, this is the case. The truth will come out anyway. Like David, I would not have thought that the pattern fits. However, the reports from New Zealand are of real concern. Given the calls by ISIS for local Muslims to commit their own unsupported acts of terror it would not surprise me to see some engage in this sort of attack. But David is right. It is early days. Let’s wait and see.

    On his Facebook page, he claims to be “greek islamic kurdish ANGEL OF CULT.” He also claims to be Yazidi.

    The M.O. of Islamic terrorists is to not waste time, to provide no warning, to attack suddenly and decisively. Instead, the driver did burnouts in the middle of an intersection full of people, with people crowding around providing perfect targets, before, admittedly, deliberately ramming other pedestrians with his car.“.

    It could also be true that he was a sloppy, drug-addled self-supported terrorist that had no real plan, which is why Mid-East music might have been blaring etc., but this from only ONE “witness” out of how many?

    The way you call it is absolutely correct David. There simply isn’t enough information at present and the NZ story looks suspect.

  • Warty2

    This readiness to lie to the public, to cover up the truth is happening with too great a frequency. Possibly for the majority of people, listening to the Victorian premier and his police chief denying any links to terrorism and claiming the perpetrator was well know to them and had mental health problems, has echoes of France, of Belgium, Germany and Orlando, USA. We simply no long trust the politicians, and the hunger for straight dealing and openness will become so pressing, we may well see our own Trump revolution.
    I am fed up with the appeasement of Islam. I am fed up with being treated like a mushroom.

  • Karen Dwyer

    Comment to me last night from Mr Dwyer, (who was witness to the early and final part of this event, but not the part where the car was driven up Bourke St and in mall): the man was driving around and around, basically spending time being annoying, and just waiting for the police. As soon as the police arrived, the driver was away off.

    Clearly, he intended to drive into people, but if this was his primary intention he could easily have rammed many people almost immediately instead of waiting for police.

    Taunting police and involving them seems to have been part of his incoherent “plan”.

      Or could it have been “Look at me look at me, you said it couldn’t happen in Australia as all Muslims are peaceful hypocrites from Islam”
      Quran 4:95

      Not equal are those believers remaining [at home] – other than the disabled – and the mujahideen, [who strive and fight] in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their lives. Allah has preferred the mujahideen through their wealth and their lives over those who remain [behind], by degrees. And to both Allah has promised the best [reward]. But Allah has preferred the mujahideen over those who remain [behind] with a great reward –

        He certainly seemed to be enjoying the attention. And enjoyed “being in control” of the situation (although clearly not in control of himself). False sense of superiority in his manner and FB posts.

    Useless female cop @ 1:01 stood by and let people get killed.
    Sack her, name and shame her.
    I thought VicPol shot first asked questions later.
    Total failure!
