Radicalized By Hizb-ut-Tahrir At Parramatta Mosque

(Compilation of breaking news articles from various Australian sources.)

Even a 6-year-old is radicalized by Hizb-ut-Tahrir.
The 15-year-old who shot dead a police employee in Sydney is ­believed to have been ­radicalised through worshippers he met at one of the city’s mainstream mosques where other teenagers are known to have sympathies for the terrorist group Islamic State.

Farhad Khalil ­Mohammad Jabar would regularly skip school to pray at the Parramatta Mosque, less than 1km from the NSW Police State Crime Command building where he ­executed 58-year-old accountant Curtis Cheng on ­Friday afternoon.

Detectives searched the mosque on Saturday night after reports Jabar had been seen there before his attack, only hours after imams leading the day’s service included one associated with the controversial ­political group Hizb-ut-Tahrir.

Hizb-ut-Tahrir officials yesterday refused to condemn ­Friday’s killing during a public protest against the involvement of Western governments in the Middle East. Like Islamic State, the org­anisation believes in the establishment of a “caliphate” or auto­nomous Muslim state and has been declared a terrorist ­organ­isation by other countries, ­although it does not endorse ­violence publicly.

One of the speakers at the rally, Hamzah Qureshi, said Hizb-ut-Tahrir would “stand with the Muslims of Syria. The day is not far where we will witness a world where our children and our grandchildren will once again see the light of Islam as the world saw for centuries before,” he told the protest.

Mosque denies NSW shooting link

Radicalization going on inside the Parramatta Mosque.
The president of the Parramatta mosque has denied any connections with the gunman who shot a police worker. Neil El-Kadomi, the president of a Parramatta mosque that was raided after the terrorism-linked shooting of a NSW police employee, has denied any connections with teenage gunman Farhad Jabar Khalil Mohammad.

'We don't know the boy, or where he lived because he's not a regular person in the congregation,' Neil El-Kadomi told the ABC's 7.30 program. Radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir has also denied links to the teenage killer.

The 7.30 program reported on Monday that it's believed a small group of men at Parramatta Mosque encouraged the 15-year-old to attack. The teen reportedly attended a lecture by the group at Parramatta Mosque on Friday, shortly before gunning down veteran police accountant Curtis Cheng, 58, as he left work at the Parramatta police headquarters.

Mr El-Kadomi said if anybody was suspected of using the mosque to radicalise others, he would tell police immediately. 'I don't hesitate,' he said. 'Going to the police straight away better than to be sorry later.'

The notorious Muslim extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir says claims that the teen was affiliated with the group are 'groundless and absurd'. 'Hizb ut-Tahrir's position on the use of violence as a means for political change or expressing political grievance is also extremely well known,' the group told AAP on Monday. 'Actions like the Parramatta shooting are plainly wrong.'

Claims that the teen had been radicalised drew condemnation of extremist organisations, including from Labor leader Bill Shorten who likened radicals to pedophiles. 'Labor has no time for any organisation found to be fomenting this dangerous, crazy rubbish, which is preying upon teenagers with such dreadful, tragic consequences,' he told reporters in Sydney. 'These organisations preying upon young people are a sort of political or a terrorist version of pedophiles who prey upon young people.'
