Police raids in Melbourne’s northern suburbs

A PLOT to attack landmark sites in Melbourne’s CBD on Christmas Day has been foiled following a series of raids in Melbourne this morning, police say.

* Flinders Street, Federation Square, St Paul’s Cathedral potential targets

* Evidence of plans for an ‘explosive act’

* Alleged plotters ‘self-radicalised, inspired by ISIS propaganda’

* Five raids conducted across Melbourne

* Seven arrests, five remain in custody...

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull praised the efforts of police. “This is one of the most substantial terrorist plots that has been disrupted over the last several years,” Mr Turnbull said...

@vikorr,
Seems there were suicide bombs planned in the Melbourne Plot

The part I found interesting though, was that it took the involvement of 400 police officers to stop this. That made me think 'no wonder France is having problems'

Indonesia is the most populous Muslim Nation, and also one that many people consider peaceful.

Notable is the Indonesian counter terrorism officer stating that "those looking to support jihad were media and tech savvy middle class figures and not just the disaffected from lower socio economics".

I've rearranged the order of the 1st 2 paragraphs, to give more sense to this cut down version. Full article is in the link below.

Australian authorities worried over Indonesia’s growing religious and racial intolerance

On a scale of 1-10 on the threat to regional security, Indonesian terror expert Al Chaidar was clear this week. It is a “9”...

It is also to this backdrop Indonesian police announced last week the mobilisation of 155,000 officers to the nation’s streets from December 23 to January 4...

“We are at an intolerance emergency, it’s horrible.

“Not only threat related with security but also threat related with diversity. Our pluralism multiculturalism is currently being threatened. Our tolerance life is also being threatened by the appearance of intolerance movements.”

He said while the West remained the target, internally and pushed from outside by groups like ISIS was faith-based intolerance. He said unlike before, those looking to support jihad were media and tech savvy middle class figures and not just the disaffected from lower socio economics.

He said there were seven main terrorist group in Indonesia, three affiliated with al-Qaeda and four with ISIS looking to make a spectacular attack and spark internal conflict like in Syria to pave the wave for a caliphate declaration. But he said the region was under threat from other ideologies looking to unite.

Earlier this year, four Islamic militant groups in the Philippines including the brutal Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) swore allegiance to ISIS with hunted jihadist Isnilon Hapilon (aka Abu Abdullah al-Filipini) anointed as ISIS “emir of Southeast Asia”...

Is it time we asked that:
- (those parts that are) violent theology be outlawed?
- (those parts of) theology that denigrates other religions be outlawed?

Preachers of religious violence or hate, be outlawed from preaching in their religions places of worship?

This law would apply evenly to all religions.

I know France has introduced something similar, having deported 40 Imams for hate speech.
