    Three Australian Muslims Saney Aweys, 27, Wissam Fattal, 34, and Nayef El Sayed, 26, found quilty of terror plot - court: : Three guilty of planning attack on Australian barracks

    MELBOURNE | Thu Dec 23, 2010 7:34am IST
    MELBOURNE (Reuters) - A jury found three Australian men guilty on Thursday of planning an attack on a Sydney army base in 2009, in which they would stage a "shootout" and kill as many people as possible before they were killed or captured, a court official said.
    The three Muslims believed Islam was under attack opposed Australia's military involvement in Afghanistan, the prosecutor told the Victorian Supreme Court during their trial in Melbourne.
    Two other Muslim men were found not guilty.
    Australia has around 1,550 troops in Afghanistan, based mainly at Tirin Kot in southern Uruzgan province, and is the largest non-NATO member of the international coalition fighting Taliban insurgents in the country.
    Wissam Fattal, 34, Saney Aweys, 27, and Nayef El Sayed, 26, were found guilty of conspiring to prepare for or plan a terrorist act between February 1, 2009 and August 4, 2009.
    As the jury left the court following the verdict, Fattal said: "Islam is truth religion. Thank you very much", Australian Associated Press reported from the courtroom.
    Australia's biggest terror trial ended in February 2009, when Muslim cleric Abdul Nacer Benbrika was jailed for 15 years for leading a cell that planned to bomb a 2005 football match in Melbourne. Altogether, 12 people were jailed over the plot.
    Australia has not suffered a peacetime attack on home soil since a bombing outside a Sydney hotel during a Commonwealth meeting in 1978 that killed three people. But 95 Australians have been killed in bomb attacks in Indonesia since 2002.



    Three guilty of planning attack on Australian barracks





    ydney - Three Australians were found guilty Thursday of a plot to arm themselves with automatic weapons and kill as many soldiers as they could in a suicide attack on a Sydney Army barracks. Two others, also of Somali or Lebanese descent, were found not guilty after the three-month trial in Melbourne. Saney Aweys, 27, Wissam Fattal, 34, and Nayef El Sayed, 26, will be sentenced at a later date. Yacqub Khayre, 23, and Abdirahman Ahmed, 26, hugged each other and their fellow defendants when they were acquitted and set free. Police had alleged the five sought the blessing of Muslim leaders in Somalia for their plan to burst into the base and open fire. During a committal hearing earlier this year, the court heard the men had links to the Somali-based terrorist group al-Shabaab. On that occasion, Fattal shouted out: 'You send troops to Iraq to kill innocent people. You call me a terrorist. I've never killed a person in my life.' He was admonished for a lack of respect to the court and for his refusal to stand when the charges were read out.

    Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

    We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

    The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
