Four Corners [Walls]:Terrorist [?] - or Taunted by the Australian Defence, [War], Force who sacked him as a cleaning contractor? Who is Mamdouh Habib? And why was he harassed by the Australian Federal Police? Then tagged and labelled as a spy? Why was he vilified by the community? When he fled to Pakistan how did he end up being tortured in Egypt? And how did he end up at Guantanamo prison camp reserved for the men America calls "the worst of the worst:
[Worst of the worst? How about all scapegoats and patsies for the Coalition of the Killing's resource war's in the Middle East.]
This edited article is not by Sally Neighbour the Worst of the Worst Reporters.
Last night on Four Corners [Walls], [allegedly], the most revealing and comprehensive account so far about Egyptian-born Mamdouh Habib, and what he did before he was detained, [imprisoned and tortured], at Guantanamo Bay and deprived of his legal rights.
Four Corners [Walls] : "A taunted man", "a great guy", "a self opinionated", "sharp and agitated", "a great family man" - these are just some of the descriptions of father-of-four Mamdouh Habib before he blundered into the arms of Pakistani police and was dispatched to Egypt for alleged, [?] torture, then incarcerated at Guantanamo.
[How about kidnapped, renditioned to Pakistan into the arms of police and tortured.]
As Four Corners [Walls] reports, [Mr], Habib, the former contract cleaner with the ADF Australian Defence, [War], force turned Sydney coffee shop proprietor, had developed a knack for being alert and alarmed at what was happening to Muslims.
Reporter Sally Neighbour, [allegedly], pieces together the Habib story from his migration to Australia 20 years ago, [allegedly], his growing devotion to Islam and his, [alleged], radicalisation by the US murder trial of an Islamic man.
[Mr], Habib, [allegedly], campaigned for the men convicted, [? patsies], of the first World Trade centre bombing. But just because they're convicted doesn't mean they did it. It just means they were convicted.
[Mr], Habib came to ASIO's, [an Australian terrorist organisation], notice when he fell out with the ADF obviously someone had it in for Mamdouh and the ADF tipped off ASIO and the AFP to taunt him, [? terrorise him.]
By the sounds of it he was declared a wog. That's Aussie slang for get the bastard he's not one of ours and we can discriminate against him he is an easy target. Aussie race hate!
Well they got back at him alright " kicked his arse round the face of the earth, tortured him and then labelled him the worst of the worst.
[Allegedly according to Four Corners [Walls], he began attending lectures by an Islamic preacher in Sydney by this time probably feeling picked on and out of place and seeking friendship anyway he could with people who could understand how he was being treated.
Four Corners [Walls]: " But he was under growing personal pressure. A government contract fell through."
You mean he fell through the government contract? Or someone hit him over the head with it instead? Taunted!
His business collapsed. Taunted! He felt cheated because "he was Muslim and Egyptian", according to an old friend? Taunted?
[Mr], Habib's associates portray a man who was becoming increasingly angry, argumentative and paranoid. Taunted!
[Allegedly], witnesses tell Four Corners [Walls] that he began trawling the prayer rooms of western Sydney trying to sign up recruits for jihad. [?]Taunted?
[Keywords: Jihad, Links, plots, cells, training camps, terrorists, Bin Laden etc.]
[Four Corners [Walls], "I really want to live with bin Laden," he said, according to one associate? Again Taunted?
[Just plain rubbish and propaganda. Four Corners knows that so why lie about it?]
[Allegedly], Mamdouh Habib took off to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Taunted! Where he is alleged to have trained with the now-banned terrorist group Lashkar e-Toiba?
[Again just plain rubbish and propaganda and Four Corners know that so why lie about it?]
[Allegedly], on his return, however, he was seen more as a troublemaker 'Taunted' than as a hero in Lakemba's Muslim community? [Taunted by Four Corners [Walls?]
[Four Corners [Walls], "Habib was "now" being watched by Australian authorities?"
Not true! Australian authorities set out to taunt him in the first place and they knew exactly what they were doing from the outset when he lost his cleaning contract to date.
[Four Corners [Walls][Allegedly], rumours that he was a spy swirled through Lakemba. Habib began accusing fellow Muslims of assaulting and threatening him.
By 2001 Habib was a man on the edge because he was taunted!
[Four Corners [Walls] [Allegedly], he headed to Pakistan, telling friends that he was checking out schools for his children. Authorities say he was training with, [US demon], Al Qaeda. This time he did not return. He has not spoken to his family since September 2001.
Through exclusive pre-emptive strikes with his former associates and contacts, Sally Neighbour tells the story of the troubled and hapless Mamdouh Habib, and asks if he is indeed among "the worst of the worst".
"When in fact he is the worst of the worst taunted" No question about it today on Four Corners [Walls] The Howard Governments Propaganda Machine and repeated at your leisure.
Ed: What a load of rubbish and propaganda by Four Corners [Walls] good frame up anyway! Sally Neighbourhow do you sleep at night?
