Melbourne, Australia has been shaken with another terror event unfolding in the heart of the CBD. A single man initially appears in the eastern end of the Street at about 4pm, near the site of the infamous Bourke Street Vehicular Homocide in January and December 2017, (see below), firstly setting his car ablaze, which may be the result from a failed explosive. The vehicle was allegedly loaded with gas bottles. The man then commenced a knife attack on innocent bystanders, one man reportedly stabbed in the face later dying may have gone to help with the fire. This was followed by the stabbing of two other men, one a security guard* the other a tourist**, before engaging police officers, who tried every means to shut-down the attacker with non-lethal force. Police finally snibbed the maniac who was transported to hospital and later died. It was reported early in the media cycle that the man was known to police and intelligence agencies.
UPDATE – 30 year old Somali – Hassan Khalid Shire Ali – passport cancelled in 2015. One fact that has been reported as investigated is a link between Gargasoulis’ trial starting (see below) and this event which seems a bit of a stretch of the imagination. What could also may be linked is the explosions that happened in Somalia the same day in which twenty seven people died after a multiple car bombs exploded. (AJ)**
The man who was killed has now been named as Sisto Malaspina, who was one of the owners of Melbourne’s iconic Pellegrinis Bar.
Note : the same house appears in both reports.
One remarkable aspect to this event is the Policeman who was the focus of the rage seemed to just brush off the six foot four maniacs swats which were powerful attempts to plunge the knife into the policeman’s body. This event even it its early stages has hallmarks of the Brighton terror event from June 2017 (tangentcode) in which Yacqub Khayre killed one innocent and attempted a shoot out with police.
Image below shows police ending the event with a single gun shot to the chest.
Australian PM – “Religious extremism takes many forms around the world, and no religion is immune from it … But here in Australia, we would be kidding ourselves if we did not call out the fact that the greatest threat of religious extremism … is the radical and dangerous ideology of extremist Islam,”
UPDATE – 13 November 2018
“I don’t know what the police were doing, for a good two to three minutes they were trying to grab him, tackle him down when a lot of people were screaming … ‘just f***ing shoot him, shoot him’.”
“The one who conducted the operation in Melbourne is one of the fighters of the Islamic State“
The Amaq notice should not be taken into account in this event. The probability it is fake is very high.
The City was the scene of a terror event December 2017 (tangentcode)
and again in January 2017 (tangentcode)
It also comes as no surprise that the attacker was known to “federal intelligence authorities” as well as to Victoria Police just as Khayr was and who featured in Daesh – “Answer the Call” Jan 2018

January 2017 – Gargasoulas Bourke Street Rampage
Melbourne Car Rampage – it has been revealed that Deputy Commissioner Andrew Crisp sent officers an email in September telling them “time is on their side”. This comes as questions have been raised as to how the driver of the car was allowed to continue allowing the horrendous event to unfold. It is evident from any of the videos of the incident that at least a dozen police vehicles were following the driver and had been doing so most of that morning, it seems that the police are more concerned with getting their vehicles damaged. This incident has also brought the bail system or lack of one into community focus. With budget cuts and police stations closing all over Victoria and metropolitan Melbourne people are justifiably angry.

After some nine months AlHayat release the eighth in the series “Inside the Caliphate” with some interesting details in the sixteen minutes of old battle videos cobbled together with some off the shelf animations and transitions.
The basic story-board is set up with Telegraph chat messages interspersed with narrated decrees glorifying terror events such as the Pulse NightClub event and strangely a few clips from the Boston Marathon bombing, together with battle fire fights accompanied with the ubiquitous chant like atonal music vibrating in background. (Inside the Caliphate 7)
Details include this slide with Anonymous.

The use of lower third news items attempts to add credibility.

Eighteen and a half minute video from Wilayat Dimashq which is the Damascus Province media office. The video opens with the WhiteHelmets running around in building ruins which has been aired relentlessly by Western Media outlets. Most if not all of this vision is from March 12th, 2018.
The title of the video is lifted from Qur’anic verse 5:74, “So will they not repent to God and seek his forgiveness? And God is Forgiving and Merciful.”
Below, from the other side, March 12th, 2018
The video (below), also shows the fighters being bused out and also contains an extract from another WhiteHelmet fake gas production.
The video is full of signals which show the complicity between coalition forces and these scum bags on the ground.
This man is captured and executed. Syrian soldiers bodies are defiled and exhibited in some tasteless parade of grotesque imagery.
The image below show the situation from March 12th, 2018
March 12, 2018 – bused out.
“Egypt’s military says 16 troops have been killed and 19 wounded since a wide-scale operation against Islamic militants was launched.”
The scenes of the firefight at the end of the release come from early Febrauary, “Protectors of Islamic Wars” (tangentcode). The video shows the ‘harass and retreat’ tactic the small cells of fighters use along with roadside IED’s, snipers and vehicle stoppages executing suspected soldiers.
The armoured car is stolen, the policemen killed.
UPDATE – April 18th, 2018
“Egypt announced on Wednesday that its military killed the leader of the ISIS terrorist group in the Sinai region.
Colonel Tamer el-Rifai, a military spokesman, said in a statement that Nasser Abou Zaqoul was killed in a shootout with troops in central Sinai.
The military said it found a rifle, two grenades and a large quantity of ammunition with Abou Zaqoul.
The news came just days after the military said eight soldiers were killed and 15 wounded when militants wearing explosive belts blew themselves up as they tried to infiltrate a military base in central Sinai.
In February, Egypt launched a comprehensive plan aimed at eradicating ISIS from Sinai, where the group has entrenched itself in recent years.
The group has claimed responsibility for several attacks in the country that have left hundreds dead.
The massive operation also covers parts of Egypt’s Nile Delta and the Western Desert, along the porous border with Libya.
More than 100 extremists and at least 30 government troops have been killed since the operation, dubbed “Sinai 2018,” was launched, according to official figures.”
