Listen to Australia’s new prime munster and get yourself a good laugh:
“Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the Australian Muslim community would be appalled and shocked by the attack.”
He then goes on to admit it was hard “to understand the speed” in which Muslims are radicalised. Can he not grasp that if it’s hard for him to understand them, their motives and their radicalisation – he is not actually understanding them at all and needs a reality check.
Australia is not engaged in any “war against Muslims” anywhere in the world yet they are targeted on a regular basis. The Muslim population is a shocking miniscule 2% and they already have a daily problem with terror arrests, threats to politicians, threats to police, threats in all directions, attempts to infiltrate thousands of them from Indonesia and on and on.

Schoolboy Farhad Jabar Khalil Mohammad, 15, (pictured) stormed a police headquarters and gunned down an accountant in an ‘act of terrorism’
The first picture has emerged of the baby-faced 15-year-old who stormed a police headquarters and gunned down an accountant in an ‘act of terrorism’.
Schoolboy Farhad Jabar Khalil Mohammad shot father-of-two Curtis Cheng, 58, in the back of the head before he was killed in an exchange of gunfire with special constables guarding the station in Parramatta, Sydney.
Dressed in a black robe, the ‘radicalised’ Iranian-born youth reportedly visited a mosque in the hours before the killing which has been condemned as a ‘brutal’ and ‘callous murder’.
The lone gunman is believed to be a student at Arthur Phillip High, which is just 300m from where the double shooting took place.
It has been reported that his brother contacted police following the attack and has spoken extensively to detectives.
Farhad, who is of Iraqi-Kurdish background, is understood to have been living with his family in an apartment block in North Parramatta.
But it has emerged that his sister flew out of Australia on a flight bound for Istanbul on Thursday and may have been attempting to reach Iraq or Syria.
She reportedly took all her belongings with her, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
Police confirmed the 15-year-old had no police record and he way not on their radar.
Officers searched the teenager’s North Parramatta family home on Friday and took his computer equipment, the ABC reported.
But they revealed they had not yet discovered any messages, religious writings or notes left by Farhad.
Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione confirmed the teenager’s actions were ‘politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism’.

Multiple shots can be heard and the video then shows Farhad lying on the ground in a pool of his own blood.
But he admitted they were still unsure of the schoolboy’s ‘exact motivations’.
‘We’re a long way from establishing a full picture of this man, his exact motivations still remain a mystery to us,’ he said.
Witnesses of the attack on Friday afternoon described seeing the teenager brandishing his weapon and shouting ‘Allah, Allah’ after killing the long-serving public servant.
The schoolboy was then gunned down by three special constables who guard the building.
Farhad was previously active on social media, voicing his support for Team Ricky on reality singing contest The Voice in April 2013.
The schoolboy tweeted: ‘Team is Ricky is the best and he is the best coach.’
At this early stage of the investigation, Mr Scipione says they have no information to link the boy to a specific group.

‘There is nothing to suggest that he was doing anything but acting alone,’ he said in Sydney.
The teenager’s family have spoken to police overnight and are co-operating.
Mr Scipione said he had been advised the teenager had attended Parramatta Mosque before the shooting, but reminded people these attacks were the acts of a small minority.

A strike force, Fellows, has been set up to investigate and police are working with Islamic communities, who have offered their support.

‘The Muslim community are our absolutely necessary partners in combating this type of violent extremism.’
He said the issue of radicalisation – particularly in youth – was complex and it was hard to understand the speed at which it was occurring.
NSW premiere Mike Baird called for Sydney and state communities to ‘stay together’ in the wake of the attack.
‘We can not let actions such as these divide us… we have to come together.’
