Australia: Prominent Muslim youth leader Fadi Abdul-Rahman jailed for supplying cocaine

A prominent Muslim youth leader who helped young men in his community turn away from drugs and crime has been sentenced to at least 2½ years in jail for supplying more than $2 million worth of cocaine.

Fadi Abdul-Rahman once publicly declared that “when you stand before Allah, it’s not your macho that will make a difference – not your dollars, not your castles, not your cars”.

But the 39-year-old will spend a maximum of four years in jail for his role in a drug syndicate that smuggled five kilograms of cocaine with a street value of between $2.1 million and $2.4 million into the country in a wooden chess set sent from the US…

    2 1/2 to 4 on the top for 5 k of Coke? I wonder what his “involvement” was?

  • Petrilla

    He lied? Taqquiya? Moe fools we who believed him.. Who was the judge? Expose him or her too. How stupid are these judges? Make them pay too.

    • Sir Roderick Spode

      Given that the report is in the SMH I would take it with a grain of salt. The sentence seems very lenient. But seemingly not much by way of priors. Mitigation well argued. Good lawyer. Perhaps if this guy were moving coke in a WASP community he would be in the Volunteer Fire Brigade and Rotary? This could well be a legit case of “No Islam to see here”

    hope he enjoys his time ..

    • Sir Roderick Spode

      He will for sure. He knows how to set up a self serving front. He will stay out of the SHU. He will be paroled in 2 1/2 years – a “Drunk’s Lag”. Probably the worst case would be if he really did take up Islam.

      • bob e

        no doubt you are right. mebbe some one will stick him ..

        • Sir Roderick Spode

          Why would you think that ? Nothing he has done would bring any opprobrium in jail. Quite the contrary. Even the drug itself – coke is regarded as honourable. Not like meth or smack. He will do it easy is my gues from the story – assuming it is true.

    • Sir Roderick Spode

      Goodness me! I hope for your sake you never end up in jail.

    mohammedans & crime go hand in hand, that’s the whole idea of islam.
    Only people with little or no experience in dealing with mohammedans would believe otherwise. Of course, as always, willfully blind, idiots & leftards are exempted from this comment.

    Reminds me of the Breaking Bad episode where Jessie joins the Drugs Anonymous group in order to sell them … drugs.

    Give him the chess set and put him in solitary.

    More than 10 pounds of coke inside a chess set? Were they smuggling them inside a live midget chess set?
