4 Muslim terrorists arrested in plot to bomb a plane over Sydney

Security is heightened in airports across Australia following the Islamic-inspired terror plot that was thwarted on Saturday.

An Islamist cell planned to bring down a domestic flight with an ‘explosive device’ discovered at the Cleveland Street home.

Heavily-armed police stormed a Surry Hills home in the inner east of Sydney at 4pm before officers raided properties in Lakemba, Punchbowl and Wiley Park resulting in the arrests of four male Muslim terrorists.

An ‘explosive device’ was discovered at the Surry Hills property and deactivated by a bomb squad that was called to the scene.

One Muslim terrorist draped in a bed sheet with a heavily-bandaged head was seen being led into an ambulance outside the Surry Hills property.


The bandaged terrorist appeared to be distressed and bleeding from the head as he walked to a waiting ambulance.

He could be heard saying ‘they bashed me.’ When asked by whom, he answered ‘police.’

When asked why he was being arrested, the terrorist mumbled ‘I don’t know nothing.’

A law enforcement official told the Daily Telegraph they found material to be used for an improvised explosive device.

Residents living near the Surry Hills home, just metres from the Redfern Mosque, were evacuated while the bomb squad worked to remove the ‘explosive device.’


Commissioner Andrew Colvin addressed the media at a press conference on Sunday morning and said details about the terror plot are still developing.

‘We don’t have a great deal of information on the specific attack, the location, date or time, however, we’re investigating information indicating the aviation industry was potentially a target of that attack,’ AFP Commissioner Colvin said.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull reiterated the raids were aimed at stopping a terror plot to ‘bring down’ a plane and said security screening will take longer over the coming days.

‘Some of the measures will be obvious to the public, some will not be — those travelling should go about their business with confidence,’ Turnbull said in a press conference on Sunday morning.

‘The office of transport security has advised security screening will take longer, and travellers should arrive at terminals at least two hours before flights to allow ample time for screening.

‘They should limit the amount of carry-on and checked baggage, as this will help to ensure that security screening is efficient.’

Australia’s terror threat remains at probable.

  1. Unreformed “moderate” Islam, specially the Orthodox one requiring Sharia on public site, is the fertile earth where extremism can flourish. In non Muslim countries, we should require a pledge according to these lines:
    Unreformed Islam is incompatible with the democratic constitution, unless they proceed to a fundamental of an authoritative reading of the Quran to vaccinate Muslims against extremism, what Muslim scholars have not yet undertaken (except a tiny minority of scholars). The main points of contention are:
    1. Renounce to establish a theocracy, with the consequence of separating Mosque and State. Power hungry opportunists will always abuse religion with personal benefit. The demise of the secular state of Pakistan and Turkey, and the degrading security of non-Muslims in Indonesia was always paired with corrupt politicians courting Islamism in order to keep power and continuing to get the benefits of corruption.
    2. Renounce to convert people using compulsion and repression.
    3. Renounce the law of apostasy, recognizing the right of ex-Muslims to choose another religion or none, as they see fit.
    4. Renounce to forbid Muslim women to marry men of other religions.
    5. Renounce to compel children of Muslim father to become Muslims, accepting what they freely choose to be when they become adults.
    6. Renounce the law of blasphemy.
    Every Muslim organization, which does not comply to these points should be banned and their leaders deported out of the country.
    Activities of Clerics should be regularly monitored.
