Keeping the Peace in the State of NSW


On Monday night, as is the case on every other night of every other week here in NSW, the police were charged with keeping the peace. But the peace was not kept despite law enforcement being aware of and in the presence of those who were intent on violently disturbing the state’s peace.

A large and angry crowd who were noisily supportive of Hamas, who were shouting threats against Jews, and who had earlier marched from Town Hall to light flares and burn the Israeli flag on the forecourt steps of the Sydney Opera House, were allowed to force themselves into the mourning and remembrance of Australians whose family and friends in Israel had just been butchered and murdered by Hamas thugs.

With the colours of the flag of Israel projected onto the Opera House sails by order of the state’s Premier, Chris Minns, to show this state’s and country’s long and unwavering support for Israel, incredibly the mourners were told to stay away by the police while those who wanted to abuse the memory of the dead, the grief of the mourners as well as threaten the living, were given leeway.

Is this really what the keeping of the peace is all about? Capitulation before a group who has violent and clear intent? The giving of control of the streets to thugs in the hope that they will make their point and go home? The submission of the state to those wanting to do us harm?

Despite the Premier declaring today that the streets will not be given over to an unpeaceful march, I just watched on Sky News acting Commissioner David Hudson of NSW Police give a press conference. Having stated that a permit to march will not be given authorisation as the application is inside the seven day timeframe, the acting Commissioner said that the Police are powerless to stop people gathering if they walk along the footpath and don’t obstruct traffic etc. So,

There are thugs on the street,
But the Police Commissioner said…”Roll over”,
So we all rolled over and…

    The NSW governmetn and police rolled over when the Cronulla riots happened years ago as well.

    Appeasement, this is what it gets you.

    If the Voice gets up, what do you reckon there will then be a puch for an Islamic Voice?

    Why not, we give in to everything else, that’s Christian charity for you.

    It was Lenin who set the “modern” standard:

    “The worse, the better”.

    See also one of Lenin’s big fans, Rahm Emanuel:

    “Never let a crisis go to waste”.

    This is all DELIBERATE and done to produce a specific result.

    Also, from Ayn Rand’s “Atlas shrugged”:

    “Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

    Bingo!

    If the screech gets up, (unlikely), you can bet London to a brick, that muslims will be next on the list, 100%.

    Even better, once the Israeli response is complete in Gaza, there will obviously be much hand-wringing and wailing for the “poor” Hamas types.

    Our intellectually challenged PM, or whatever fawning sychophant is in charge of the LNP, will be “all for” bringing these chaps to Australia, because, they are exactly the type of immigrant, that will foster development and good will in Australia.

    “Diversity is our strength”, never forget that.

    Thank you BBS, you’ve said it so well.

    I now have ZERO confidence in our law enforcement. ZERO. NSW Police provided a personal escort to advocates for Hamas for over two kilometres from Town Hall to the Sydney Opera House, AND THEN THEY STOOD BY WHILST SCUM SCREAMED “GAS THE JEWS”.

    And upthread is correct, this appeasement started with Cronulla.

    I don’t know about others, I can’t speak for others, but hear this, I am so f*cking sick and tired of our police, our bureaucrats, our academics, our governments and our media rolling over and submitting themselves to this monstrous unhinged death cult.

    You are not alone, Cassie, in your disgust and despair. We are on a dark path and a large proportion of our citizenry are so badly educated and so distracted by trifles they are blind to where we are headed.

    After the events in Israel on the weekend and the subsequent Monday night, not just in our country but across the Woke West, the writing on the wall was lit up in blazing letters 100 meteres tall.

    We, who can read their message loud and clear, can only look back and wonder where the deliberate blindness to reality will take them and us. The world as we knew it has changed and we cannot go back.

    With the colours of the flag of Israel projected onto the Opera House sails by order of the state’s Premier, Chris Minns

    The obvious question which arises is why politicise the Opera House?

    For comparison, I’ve been able to find no statement or picture from 2001 of this being done for the USA’s flag after the 9/11 attacks.
    It has been pointed out already that the attack’s scale of death in Israel relative to population is far greater than the USA experienced from 9/11. Even in absolute numbers it is nearly halfway to a 9/11 scale toll.
    This is perhaps one defensible reason as to why this is being done for the Israel attack.

    The Sydney Opera House sails were lit up in August 2022 for the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence day. That’s hardly an event that should provoke extreme emotions from anybody, but still arguably political.
    Perhaps the SOH is being politicised more often these days, which I think is a misuse of the icon in principle and in practice can easily backfire in the manner seen this week.

    CCB,
    I think you’re missing the point of this post.

    While we can debate whether or not the sails of the Opera House should be used to commemorate/recognise/salute anything, the fact is that this landmark of NSW and Australia was used with the authority of the Premier of the State of NSW.

    It was a mark of respect for the fallen Israelis and to commiserate with those who have been left in grief, as well as to provide visual support to the State of Israel that this country will always stand with her. And it was all done peacefully.

    It’s what happened afterwards that is the concern. The police force – the people who are charged with keeping the peace – decided that keeping the peace is only for people who show them no threats. But for those people who are not peaceful and who have no intention of remaining peaceful if they are challenged, well, “we’ll just let them continue on their path”.

    So, it’s not about maintaining actual peace on the streets at all. We’ve all been told unambiguously by the police that they will only keep the peace when it suits them.

    One scenario: IDF wreak vengeance on Hamas. This causes a flood of refugees. Australia ups its intake from the region including many Hamas sympathisers. (I’m thinking of one young chap who thought it good karma to spit on the naked female murder victim, or perhaps the other chaps who bravely took on the babies in the cribs). So the the IDF hoses out the rats from its neighbours house and they scurry away to our country. The forever war continues.

    From the Jerusalem Post – some good stories:

    Israel’s heroes, young and old

    As the country mobilizes a military response and reckons with the unanswered questions about how such a breach could have happened in the first place, stories of individual people’s bravery and pluck in the face of unimaginable danger have provided a welcome counterpoint.

    Noam Tibon, a retired general who was already well known for his military leadership, which included commanding the Israel Defense Forces in the north, and his participation in this year’s pro-democracy protests.

    On Saturday, Tibon learned that his son, the journalist Amir Tibon, was trapped with his family in their home on Kibbutz Nahal Oz, a short distance from the Gaza border. He grabbed his single pistol and, with his wife, drove from Tel Aviv toward Nahal Oz.

    Their journey — the stuff of action movies — has been thoroughly documented in Israeli media, including in an account by Amir Tibon. First, Tibon encountered survivors of Hamas’ attack on a rave and drove them north, away from his son. Then, he ran into soldiers with no apparent mission and convinced one of them to join him. Before getting to his son’s kibbutz, they met injured soldiers and, once again, drove in the opposite direction to take them to safety. Finally, Tibon arrived at Nahal Oz and, with a handful of soldiers, killed the Hamas attackers outside his son’s home.

    Then he knocked on the window. Inside, Amir Tibon’s 3-year-old daughter responded using the Hebrew word for grandfather: “Saba is here.”

    Noam Tibon is not the only retired general to burst into action without receiving orders. Yair Golan, who was previously a left-wing lawmaker, has drawn attention for making multiple heroic rescues. First, Golan retrieved a journalist trapped in his home after his father posted on social media that the army and police were not acting to save him, according to a report on the Israeli news site Walla.
    Later, Golan learned about three young men who were in hiding after running from Hamas attackers at the nature party at Kibbutz Re’im where 260 Israelis died and others were taken hostage. There, too, the army had not attempted a rescue, according to an account from Rani Gaon, the father of one of the young men, that the family posted on Facebook.

    “Suddenly, out of nowhere, the angel arrives at the location of my son and his friends, calls my son, calls him by name, tells him ‘Hello, Major Yair Golan is speaking, come to me,’” Gaon wrote.

    He said his son told him, “‘Golan came to collect us. He will bring us all the way to you’ and so it was. This person, this hero, this angel, came and rescued them from the area, simply unbelievable. I have no words to thank and salute you, Yair Golan.”

    On Monday, a new name entered the pantheon of last weekend’s heroes: Inbal Rabin-Lieberman, a 25-year-old woman who is being credited for the survival of everyone on her kibbutz even as many of the neighboring kibbutzes suffered heavy losses.

    According to viral social posts, Rabin-Lieberman noticed early on that someone was trying to infiltrate Kibbutz Nir-Am and ran from house to house to raise the alarm, becoming sort of an Israeli Paul Revere who mustered a strong enough defense that dozens of Hamas attackers were killed before they could do any damage.

    “When it’s all over, this woman will receive the Israel Prize,” one post by a user named Ziv Rubinstein said. “The story of her heroism is a story that will enter the Israeli myth for generations.”

    And upthread is correct, this appeasement started with Cronulla.

    You are so right, Cassie. We were discussing this only yesterday. We had friends in Cronulla at the time & they told us how the fracas began with groups of Muslim youth insulting family picnic groups in Gunnamatta Park – followed progressively by insults to the beach lifesavers on Cronulla beach. Similar aggravation occurred, I understand, at Bondi & Maroubra- but the local surfing community dealt with it.

    At the height of the trouble we started seeing Middle Eastern youth around Mosman, ogling women on Balmoral and Chinamen beaches. Personally, I can recall coming out a my regular gym session in Mosman in my gym clothes & being leered at by two of these youths dressed in motorbike garb. This was obviously part of a movement developing. It was eventually dealt with by the NSW government and the police – as I hope the current trouble will similarly be addressed by Minns, who seems rightly upset by what is happening.

    It’s the SOP for NSW Plod. Look at the Lindt Cafe seige. They wanted to save Monis, at all costs, when the lives of 18 people were at stake. Instead of bringing in the SASR who are trained to deal with islamist scum in short shift, they got the TOG, who are a very poor version of the SASR. They were on duty for what, 16-18 hours before they were told to go in so close to exhaustion. SASR could have been held at the ready, rested and as relaxed as you can be before going into battle, then sent it.

    And the whole NSW plod command response was terrible. The inquest shows that the current command are more or less diverstiy picks only.

    No, BBS, I did not miss the point you were making.
    I was merely insufficiently sympathetic to the point you were making. :

    the fact is that this landmark of NSW and Australia was used with the authority of the Premier of the State of NSW.

    The point I made is prior to the question of whether the Premier’s direction receives enforcement. i.e. the SOH policing would be moot if the SOH weren’t politicised by the Premier in the first place.

    If you meant to say the keeping of the peace is lopsided even in the absence of the Premier’s endorsement, well yes, but then you would’ve missed your own point. The problem then is the pattern and not only Monday’s SOH example. Others have cited Cronulla as an earlier example of the pattern. I responded to the point that you made, not the broader pattern.

    I think they would have had TAG East (Tactical Assault Group) available at Holdsworthy Base. They are made up of Commando Reg troops and trained by SASR to do hostage rescue on the east coast*. They would have been much better at the rescue than Police as they would have no brief to try and arrest the terrorist, only to rescue the hostages.

    Unfortunately, ego and probably an underlying fear by the authorities about what the rest of the muslims in Sydney would do if their brother was killed stopped sense prevailing.

    * Unless things have changed, that is what I understand the set up to be. When first formed it was all SASR and then divested to Commando Reg with SASR instructors.

    The BBC and Black Lives Matter have exposed the virtue-signalling class’s moral depravity

    Anyone who cannot see that Hamas committed an act of genocide has lost all sense of right and wrong

    For once, I’m not blaming the politicians. Rishi Sunak, Keir Starmer, Suella Braverman, even Emmanuel Macron and Joe Biden: all have behaved impeccably these past few days. It’s the footballers, the pop stars, the middle-class virtue-signallers, the knee-takers and emoji posters, the HR activists, the academics, charity workers and “human rights” advocates who are missing in action, days after the worst anti-Semitic massacre in 78 years.

    Silence does not ordinarily imply complicity. But what if you are one of those people who jumps on every bandwagon and keeps adding flags, logos and messages of support to your Facebook or TikTok page, but had nothing to say about a genocidal attack on Jews, no unequivocal support to proffer to Israel, no interest in properly condemning Hamas? What if you posted Slava Ukraini on your profile, put up a poster for BLM in your front window, and keep spamming your WhatsApp neighbourhood group with political messaging, but cannot conceive of tweeting Am Yisrael Chai?

    Are you scared of retribution, and if so what does that tell us about extremism in Britain, the failure of integration and the police’s lack of commitment to upholding the same law for all? Or do you think that Israel got what it deserved, and does that not make you an anti-Semite? Or is it because you believe the world’s only Jewish state to be so powerful as to not need support, and you have therefore, inadvertently, internalised another anti-Semitic trope? Do you think that 7.2 million Jews, far fewer than London’s population, surrounded by fanatics armed with 150,000 missiles, threatened by a quasi-nuclear Iran that swears to destroy them, don’t deserve sympathy?

    Genocide is the act of deliberately killing large numbers of people from a nation or ethnic group with the aim of destroying it. Hamas has committed an act of genocide, a crime against humanity, against the Jewish people and Israel: anybody who cannot see this has lost all sense of right and wrong.

    If anything, describing Hamas as “terrorist” is too soft: they are war criminals, more akin to Islamic State and the Khmer Rouge than al-Qaeda or the IRA. They massacred over 1,000 men, women, children and babies, shooting them and burning them alive, injuring thousands of others, raping dozens and kidnapping scores. They would have killed far more had they not belatedly been neutralised.

    Almost uniquely, comparisons with the Nazis are the most appropriate historic parallel. Hamas are Nazis, with the same aim: they want to ethnically cleanse the region of Jews from the Jordan river to the Mediterranean sea. Hamas’s 1988 Charter calls for the total eradication of Israel, its replacement by an Islamist state and cites approvingly The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a gross anti-Semitic forgery also endorsed in Mein Kampf.

    The Third Reich’s Einsatzgruppen were SS death squads that inflicted mass murder. They played a central role in the implementation of the Final Solution, and some of their leaders were condemned to death at Nuremberg. The Hamas barbarians who entered Israel from Gaza, an independent territory from which Israel had entirely withdrawn in 2005, were jihadi Einsatzgruppen, a depraved Islamist take on the original Nazi monstrosity.

    The SS rode cars and motorbikes; Hamas also operated paragliders and bulldozers. Hitler’s men often hid what they did. The Hamas war criminals live-streamed their inhumanity, and some supporters across the West were openly celebrating within hours of the attacks (I witnessed a firework display and a flag-waving crowd dancing with joy in Edgware Road, London, late on Saturday night).

    History repeats itself. Nobody ever learns. Optimism is cowardice. Brace for long, dark weeks ahead.

    It seems the using of the SOH sails for various moments in time/messaging is quite new vis-à-vis 9/11.

    I don’t think projecting messages/symbols onto the sails goes back that far – but I’m happy to be corrected.

    According to its 1961 Act, the Opera House exists to not only promote excellence and achievement in the arts, but as a meeting place for matters of local, national and international importance.

    https://www.sydneyoperahouse.com/our-story/50-years-extraordinary-moments

    Over the years the SOH sails have been used for an array of messages, which all seem to fall within the Act.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-10-11/nsw-opera-house-lights-over-the-years-political-controversy/102958584

    In solidarity with Ukraine the Ukrainian flag was projected onto the sails. The projecting of the colours of the Israeli flag is in that vein.

    When viewed through the prism of the Act, all of those moments are entirely reasonable, including this most recent one.

    Reference the 2 lessons of history I posted on another thread a couple of days back

    1) If you conquer a country, you *must* eliminate the losers or they will cause you increasing trouble into the future (notwithstanding that the jews were in the middle east centuries before islam was invented)
    2) having attended to #1 above, you *must* refrain from re-importing a replacement grievance group (especially one related to the above).

    From Mark Steyn….

    I am a Jew
    Laura Rosen Cohen

    I am a Jew.

    I am a Jew, born of a Jewish mother, going back to our Matriarchs: Sarah, Rivkah, Rachel and Leah.

    I am a Jew, born of a Jewish father, going back to our Patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

    I am a Jew, married to a Jew of the priestly class, the holy Kohanim, going back to Aaron the first Priest, brother of Moses.

    I am a Jew with Jewish children.

    I am a Jew who was a slave in Egypt, who walked through the desert and received the Torah from G-d in the wilderness. I am a Jew who walked from slavery to freedom through the desert, guided by a pillar of fire, of G-d’s light, to the Promised Land, led by Moses himself.

    I am a Jew who survived the pogroms of early Christianity, the merciless jihad of the early Muslims, the pogroms and blood libels of Europe, the Inquisition, the Holocaust and the demonic current incarnation of antisemitism found within the Islamic world and supported by progressive Nazis in the Western world and beyond.

    I am a Jew whose family was murdered in Europe because they were Jews. I am a Jew whose family friends were slaughtered on a yacht in Cyprus, orphaning their children because they were Jews. I am a Jew whose brother in law was murdered by Muslim Jew-haters because he was a Jew.

    I am a Jew who is witnessing in real time, the largest slaughter of Jewish people since the Holocaust. The Jews who have been slaughtered are my sisters, brothers, children, aunts, uncles and cousins. They are my mother and father. My grandparents. Precious limbs, each one upon the body of the Jewish people, fragile human branches on the Jewish Tree of Life. Gone, murdered in cold blood because they were Jews.

    I am a Jew watching bloodthirsty, demonic ghouls – children of Amalek of all colours, religions and nationalities all over the world – cheer for the murder, and rape of Jews, the beheading of Jewish babies, the kidnapping of Jewish women, children and grandparents, the incineration of humans and the caging of frightened children. Yes they are in cages if they are even still alive, in the territory of the savage barbarians of Gaza. Because they are Jews.

    The hostages, I cannot think of them without my heart aching and my breath quickening. It’s too much to bear.

    I am a Jew who realizes that unlike the original, more initially subtle, Nazis of old, the new wicked, bone-chilling Muslim Nazi savages of Hamas and Gaza and their sympathizers and friends are openly flaunting their bloodlust for Jews, putting it up loudly and proudly on social media in allegedly civilized countries. Not just in faraway lands, but right in all of our front lawns, city centers and downtowns.

    I am a Jew who sees you. I see you Jew-haters and your plans and feel the winds of your unquenchable murderous appetite in full view. You’re so proud and so confidently transparent that it makes my soul feel momentarily cold. I see you baying, more primitive than animals in full view of the world with no secret Wannsee conference for you neo-Nazis.

    I won’t call you animals because not even animals behave in this manner. And all over the internet, I see you wretched souls daring to compare Jews to Nazis, taking a side by claiming to not take a side. In doing so, you side with terror. For you, it’s satisfying that the Jews got what you feel was coming to them in your poisoned soul. But guess what? What starts with the Jews never ends with us. What starts in Israel never ends there. It’s just the laboratory for terrorists. Read the writing on the wall. You are next.

    I am a Jew who is watching you, friends and foes.

    I see you. I hear you.

    I am a Jew and we will survive. When the ashes of the evil souls who perpetrated these acts, and those who celebrated them, are scattered upon the Earth and their souls descend to hell, the Jews – the eternal Jew – will still be here for time immemorial.

    Dearest readers, I can barely process it all.

    Thank you for your many messages of concern and support, which I hope to answer personally in the coming days and weeks. The only things comforting me right now are small bits of wisdom gained from various Jewish sources and persons in the past days. I will share them with you.

    One was a clip of a young Jewish girl who was diagnosed with cancer several hours before Shabbat when she was a teenager. She said she never asked G-d why, she understood that G-d had His reasons, and there must be a reason, so she just asked G-d to stay by her side during this journey.

    Next, some thoughts from a Rabbi: though we may wonder “why”, this is not the right question to ask. It is not a Jewish question because everything is in G-d’s hands and therefore “why” is unanswerable. The Jewish response therefore must be “what?”. What can I do? What should I do? I invite you all, Jews and non-Jews alike, to share in the “what” that I personally am adhering to: adding more light into the darkness, more goodness, more charity, more moral clarity, more prayer, more mitzvahs, remove fear from your life, add courage, add bravery, add your voice where it’s needed. Take on an act of goodness and kindness that you haven’t until now.

    And if you think you don’t have the words, as another Rabbi suggested, you do. Words of prayer and Psalms are the words.

    Lastly, my personal and heartfelt thanks as always to Mark Steyn for the incredible essays and insights (here, here, here, here and here), and his unfailing moral clarity and fortitude.

    Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.

    I think Laura, like Ben Shapiro, has said it best.

    Fairfield, NSW is very quiet, which is probably annoying the media who would have hoped for a bit of spiced up “news” .. tho they don’t do too much in depth research cos if they did they’d realise that although Fairfield is 2nd to Greenacre/Bankstown as Mid-East central the majority are Christian arabs .. the suburbs of Fairfield outside the shopping/CBD are predominantly Christian (Maronite) Lebanese/Syrian and far outnumber the muslim contingent …….

    Just adding my voice to that of other Kittehs here. Who could contemplate the vile murder of little children and defenseless citizens and not rise up against those thugs in Sydney who endorse this killing and want further deaths and mayhem? Until this Islamic thuggery is brought under check Sydney’s name is blackened at home and abroad. What happened at the Opera House must never ever be repeated, anywhere (although of course it will be in certain Islamic suburbs and mosques of Sydney). Even there, it should be controlled and shamed. There should be no place for this in Australia.

    I fully support Dutton’s challenge to Albanese to deport any one who is not an Australian citizen if they were part of Monday’s shameful response to the murder and slaughter in Israel last week end, or if they have shown support to those who urge violence against anyone.

    Will ASIO look? Will ASIO act? We will see.

    The Sydney Opera House is the Tiananmen Square of the ABC.
    Around 37 online news sources published the story of this protest.
    https://ground.news/article/anti-israel-protestors-shout-gas-the-jews-outside-sydney-opera-house_34cf8d
    Most of these companies were courageous enough to admit, sometimes in the headline, that “Gas the jews” was chanted at this protest. Yet in the ABC story there is no mention of such a chant. In ABC world such a chant did not happen.
    They admit “f… the Jews” was shouted, but not “gas the jews”.

    Perhaps “f*ck” is the Brandon of Hamas? 🙂

    The Guardian article also withholds any gaseous urges.
    In fairness I note that the linked Sky News article also says nothing about this remark. The video version had more commentary but had to be cut short before two other commentators could get a word in, so unclear what might have been said if time permitted.

    Premier Chris Minns did the correct thing, he set the scene for showing support for Israel where Jewish people and their friends could mourn their loss. The police got ”keeping the peace’ wrong. The correct thing should have been to clear the area of the violent rabble of pro Palestinian supporters, making arrests as required. But, much to their shame and discredit, they did not. As a result, their actions amounted to appeasement which was tacit approval for the Hamas inspired mob to do more of the same.

    Now here we are, early Sunday morning. What kind of reaction will the police in NSW take today in Hyde Park. I can only hope attendance is minimal.
