Breaking news this morning across the media. Victoria Police and Australian Federal Police, in joint co-operation, launched a counter-terrorism raid across 19 addresses throughout Melbourne.
More than anything else, this action highlights the truth about the world we are now living in. No longer is the terrorist situation focused upon the United States, but the whole Western world; from the US, through to Europe and, now, Australia. The reality of the Islamic extremist has reached our shores. That being said, there are many non-extremist Islamic groups which do not condone such activity. As such, I hope that we, the general public, would have the discernment and wisdom to distinguish between our Muslim neighbours and those who are truly threats to our society.
There is more that can be said regarding this incident, but until allegations are finalised, that’s all for now.
