Melbourne Australia – Police arrested three men alleging the trio were attempting to procure a semi automatic weapon for the purposes of a terror event. This comes on the same day of the State Funeral for Sisto Malaspina who was killed in the Bourke Street Terror Event, November 9th. (tangentcode)

The astounding question reporter James Oaten asks – “do you think you have been mistreated?“
The men, aged 21, 26 and 30, all had their passports cancelled this year in January, March and October because authorities suspected they wanted to travel to a conflict zone. The men are Australian nationals of Turkish background with little criminal history.
Hanifi Halis, 21, of Greenvale, Ertunc Eriklioglu, 30, from Dallas, and Samed Eriklioglu, 26, of Campbellfield have all been charged with planning a terrorist attack and have since faced court.
Since the threat level was raised in September 2014, 90 people have been charged in relation to 40 counter-terrorism investigations across the country.

Forty-two minute video release from Islamic State Sinai which has a number of ‘stand out’ details.
The GoPro wearing fighter getting hit is one, (11.24)
The production is much the same as other Sinai releases but the one thing that sets this release apart are the audio errors in some of the multicamera edits. The firefights at a radio base with the hijacking of a tank, and also the roadblocks favouring the small mobile cells of fighters which dissolve back into the small villages and vast terrain. The attacks are not strategic or with any long term motivations, but a way of replenishing supplies, looting ammunition and taking prisoners for possible exchange or ransom showing the diversification of the fighter cells In one scene the old weapons the men carry are in contrast to the brand new webbing they have on. The video is a showcase for where the money went.
The video has a number of executions and begins with the slaughter of a goat.

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.

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.
