Marvellous how some Lebanese Muslim groups are making their way in their new Sydney home:
THE cold-blooded daylight execution of drug boss Abdul Qadier Darwiche will inevitably lead to more bloodshed, a senior police source warned yesterday…
The escalation of Sydney’s bloody turf wars harks back to the mid to late-1990s, when the city’s criminal scene was dominated by standover man Danny Karam and his deputy Michael Kanaan, whose enterprises ran to drug running, weapons trading, knee-cappings and murder…
In the 11 years since Karam was slain, the police source said there had been “20 to 30 murders and another 50 to 100 shootings” as control was wrested away by one side, only to be clawed back by another. The genesis of the criminal scene can be traced back to the emergence of gangs formed by members of the Raazak and Darwiche families, who were at war with the Bankstown-based Telopea St Boys and former followers of Kanaan and Karam…
Further complicating matters is the fact up to seven rocket launchers, stolen from the Australian military and sold to Adnan Darwiche, have never been recovered.
Time to hold some politicians and policies to account:
IMMIGRATION authorities warned the Fraser government in 1976 it was accepting too many Lebanese Muslim refugees without “the required qualities” for successful integration. The Fraser cabinet was also told many of the refugees were unskilled, illiterate and had questionable character and standards of personal hygiene.
Cabinet documents released today by the National Archives under the 30-year rule reveal how Australia’s decision to accept thousands of Lebanese Muslims fleeing Lebanon’s 1976 civil war led to a temporary collapse of normal eligibility standards.
