If the “gunman”would be a tea party member the news would state clearly a right wing tea party member etc Why pray tel don’t they say a Muslim fanatical terrorist?!

You obviously don’t understand how hostage situations work. The primary concern is for the safety of the hostages. If the police would just barge in, there is a very high chance that the hostage taker would harm or kill hostages. These people train for a long time to negotiate, they know what they are doing.

No lessons taken?

The Sydney local secular community responded to this scenario with increased support ( ! ) to Muslims !
Following the belief that Muslims are essentially peaceful and are not to be judged by the actions of terrorists, there is a new trend to be supportive of Muslims and to request the full expression of their religion and to embrace it into western culture.

Pathetic

The police of Sydney are busy negotiating with this terrorist!
S-T-U-P-I-D stupid
There is no common ground btwn healthy and safe sydny people and unhealthy unsafe gunman terrorist … So why they can’t just barge in and remove his existence … baffles me.

Gad Elbaz and his father were in that very café 15 minutes before the guman came in. he announced his near miss at his concert in Australai tonight.

Imagine if he was there. The whole world would have said it was about Israel.

Dear World: THIS IS THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE ARABS AND YOUR ANTI-SEMITISM. May G-d send Moshiach NOW so these savages will get their due!

One of Anash (who askes his name not be published) usually gets off Subway at that Martin Place Station at that same time. Today he had pains in foot and knee, and his wife drove him into town, just missing the action. B”H he is safe, in his office.
