UPDATE: More from Jihad Watch: Islamic State: “We will make your New Year mayhem with bombings and trampling attacks”
But don’t worry, the Deputy Police Commissioner says it’s only an ‘isolated incident’.
She still hasn’t learned that there are no lone wolves in Islam.
A 40-year-old man has been arrested and charged over making threats online targeting Sydney’s New Year’s Eve festivities.
Probably a Methodist.
Officers from the NSW Police Force Terrorism Investigation Squad arrested the man at Sydney’s international airport on Thursday after receiving a tip-off from the public.
The man arrived in the country on a plane from London and was taken to Mascot Police Station following his arrest.
He allegedly made online threats on a blog towards New Year’s Eve activities.
In a statement, Deputy Police Commissioner Catherine Burn said initial investigations suggested it was an isolated incident.
“We are confident that there are no current or specific threats to New Year’s Eve, and while we ask people to remain vigilant, people should enjoy the celebrations,” she said. (source)
The terrorists only have to be successful once – the police must be successful every time.
