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.
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.

The video shows vision (possibly) from a surveillance craft of two men committing an act of gross indecency on Donkeys. The video is taken by cell phone as the vision is played back on a VGA monitor. Certain time marks are seen as well as what may be IR or infrared.
Note : Some things can not be unseen.
Note – (sheep make a quick get away)
It has been reported that a plot to bomb the Vic Market was cooking on the wire. The market is at the top end of the city and is popular with Melburnians and tourists. It has come to light that a British amateur “jihadist hunters” had posed as a recruiter and was stringing along “recruits” and then passing that information to Police. This plot is apparently not the first time the informant has helped authorities foil attacks.
“The overseas plotter, Sajed, sent his “trainee” a 5000-page terrorism manual, which has chapters on creating improvised explosive devices and two videos on how to cook up a “bomb in a kitchen”. He requested maps and satellite images of the market, and told his recruit to map out the best route to deliver the bomb.” Hutchinson (TheAustralian)
This media barrage and “jihadi hunter” angle will dissaude people from internet connections (at least without verification) and to act in solitary.
A Victoria Police spokesman said the matter was assessed and it was determined they posed no threat.
“Our teams regularly receive information from various sources and carefully assess that information based on validity and risk,” the spokesman said.
“These matters were assessed earlier this year in accordance with that process and it was determined that they pose no threat in Australia.”
In this case why was it necessary to make it a front page news story? The other story that has been getting spun on high revolution is the Australian Army conducting an inquest into SAS soldiers actions some from ten years ago.
“An Australian special forces soldier kicked a handcuffed Afghan detainee off a cliff before endorsing his summary execution, according to allegations made by direct witnesses.” (here)
What does the media think this will precipitate? Is this some type of fuel for riot porn ratings?
UPDATE – June 14th
Images have appeared in Australian Mainstream media of a German Nazi flag being flown on a vehicle. The event took place in 2007 and was summarily dealt with at the the time. This reiterates my point that media seek to provoke and agitate through the dredging up of such images. How will any fair justice be available to soldiers in the Defence Force Inquest?
Perhaps the politicians and journalists who have never been to Afghanistan, let alone a conflict zone should try and understand how “a twisted joke” can raise moral of the men and women who are repeatedly sent into this region and the stress and strains it places on their home lives. Read ABC tripe (here)
Flying the Nazi flag may be a representation of how the soldiers felt…in a far off country for some unkown reasons, doing the politicians dirty work? (War Pigs)
If this was the case below, you would never hear about it…
UPDATE June 15 2018
The media deluge of this historical artefact has precipitated actions from a disaffected person to send threatening letters to a witness of the Defence Forces Inquiry. Below Mark Biskin (CoD) and Marise Payne (Min.Def) corrects “journalists” who persist with their poisonous rhetoric. (ABC)
