“Gunman” thought himself part of ISIL

This is going to really mess up the plans of people that want us to think the Sydney hostage siege has nothing to do with IS / ISIL / ISIS and terrorism:

Last time I looked you didn’t actually need to go through a rigorous application process.  If you want to be a member is ISIL, you declare yourself one.  That’s all it takes.

On a website, now suspended, he describes himself as a convert to Sunni Islam. In his statement he expresses “allegiance” to ISIL and its leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, calling the ISIL Caliph as his “Imam”.

Also in his statement, the formerly Shiite Muslim underlines that he has converted to Sunni Islam, stressing that Shiites are blasphemous people.

He also underscores that the war in Iraq is not a sectarian strife, but a war between the Muslims (i.e. ISIL) and the hypocrites.

Looks to me like he knew exactly where he wanted to fit into the scheme of things.  And he was very much geared up to take the fight to those who fight IS / ISIS / ISIL.

Ergo:  the gunman is a terrorist, and his actions were terrorism.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
