Australia arrests five Muslims plotting terror attack at WW I Commemoration

Police in Australia say they have foiled an Islamic State-inspired plot to carry out an attack at a World War One centenary event.

Police arrested five suspects, including two 18-year-olds being held for alleged terrorism-related offences.

They said the men were planning to target police at an Anzac memorial event in Melbourne next week.

Some 200 police officers took part in the counter-terrorism operation in the city early on Saturday.

      Think of the shawarma and falafel!!! Isn’t the increasing threat of terrorism a good trade-off for such ethnic food?

    Oddly enough, Australia’s first Islamic terror attack was over their fighting the Ottomans, in WW I.
    In fact, this year is the 100th anniversary of that atrocity.

    Behind every 5 terrorists is a whole community of Muslims who nurtured and supported the terrorists.
