Soldiers of Islam Biker Gang Terrorizes Australia’s Gold Coast

241626-bikie-recruits

Forget Mad Max and think Mad Mohammed.

Four bikies, believed to be from the new gang Soldiers of Islam, have been arrested after a wild brawl at Mermaid Tavern this afternoon.

Soldiers of Islam, also known as Sons of Islam, is believed to be an offshoot of outlaw bikie gang the Bandidos, which has a clubhouse at Mermaid Beach on the Gold Coast.

Sources say the gang, comprising young Muslim men who sport “SOI” tattoos, has sprung up on the Glitter Strip in recent years.

Soldiers of Islam appears to be made up of former Iraqi soldiers which is one of those benefits of welcoming immigrants from broken parts of the world.

Police have discovered pictures of Osama bin Laden at a Gold Coast home linked to a worrying new bikie gang called Soldiers of Islam, whose members include former Iraqi soldiers.

Photos of the fugitive Al Qa’ida leader were found recently at the home of a gang member during a criminal investigation.

“They are associated with the Bandidos. Some of the members are ex-Iraqi soldiers with weapons training, so it’s quite a worry.”

Middle Eastern gangs, while active in Sydney, have only recently been making their presence felt in Queensland and particularly on the Gold Coast.

The Bandidos started out in the United States, but the Australian version leans Middle Eastern and Muslim. Australia’s organized crime is thick with Lebanese. They spun off from the Comancheros, whose president is Mahmoud Hawi.

And it gets better

They call themselves MBM – the Muslim Brotherhood Movement – a gang of 600 men who boast they are the toughest and best young street fighters of Middle Eastern descent in Sydney.

MBM claims to be the biggest of four new gangs to emerge on Sydney streets in the past year. Its numbers rival those of the state’s largest bikie gang, the Rebels.

The sudden appearance of MBM, with its growing membership recruited predominantly from the city’s south-western suburbs, has alarmed senior police already battling to combat open warfare among outlaw motorbike gangs.

Even hardened private security guards have expressed concern to police about the indiscriminate “punch and run” tactics of MBM members who, in the past two weeks, have arrived in large numbers at city nightclub venues and who walk the streets in intimidating mobs. But the objectives of MBM – its emblem features two crossed pistols and a hand grenade – and its leadership remain unclear to officers of both the Organised Crime and Gang Squad and Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad.

Note the Muslim Brotherhood logo up top with the Koran and the Harley Davidson. The Muslim Brotherhood finally has its own biker gang.

    There is only one moral, ethical solution to the Muslim biker gangs in Australia. Deport every last one of them, along with their families.

    Will Western leaders ever have the basic decency and goodness to protect non-Muslims?

    • Arf

      Will Western non-Muslims ever have the intelligence and fortitude to stop getting themselves in debt to the Saudis for oil that we have right here so that we don’t have to cater to these disgusting thugs? Will Western non-Muslims ever stop voting for politicians who bring the Muslim Brotherhood into our government and who think that our problems will be solved if we just all convert to Islam? Words to remember: You can’t be a victim unless you agree to it.

      • Andy

        I converted to Islam and I am from Canada. I am still proud of my German ancestry and people. Islam is about submission to God and applying his commandments.

        As for these Lebs who clearly are not following Islam and using the name for evil purposes – Islam is innocent of their actions.

        • Drakken

          Obviously your one of those weak willed useful idiots who lacked meaning in your life and let islam fill the void. Islam is pure unadulted evil period, the fact that you are no longer one of us, but belong to the umma makes you as dangerous as someone from the muslim world, therefore an enemy of all of us in the west.

            sooo…. YOU DECREE that a person who worships the same god you do, and holds in honor a book that states…. to kill one is to have killed all of mankind… and to save one will be as if you had saved all of humanity, is not worthy of being considered a human being…… simply because they do not attend YOUR church…!!! you claim the Qur’an is pure evil, simply because that is what you have been programed to spew….. you have never actually looked at an English translation, just spew the lies you have been taught to recite……….. how American conservative of you, and I do not mean that in a nice way.
            Do you imagine the creator is amused with your pretending to be the one in charge here??

          • http://pressroom.prlog.org/eLiza1/ Elizabeth Jane

            cattnipp, I don’t worship any God and the worst of all gods is the Moon god, Allah. The Qur’an is a mixture of misogyny, racism, xenophobia and hatred of non-Muslims, who are called Kaffirs. It says there will be peace when every country in the World is under Shariah – that is not a “religion of peace”, it is a dangerous cult. All over the World Muslims practice first-cousin inbreeding in marriage based on the Quran’s teachings. They are statistically of low I.Q. as a result of 1,400 years of inbreeding. They practice child marriage and paedophilia because their prophet Mohammed married a six year old kindergarten school girl and raped her when she was 9, and they regard him as the perfect human being. The Qur’an says a husband can beat his wife and that women have half the legal rights as men and that non-Muslims have similarly lesser legal rights than Muslims, doubly so if female and non-Muslim. And these retarded bigots and perverts believe they should dominate the World. What is good about that?

          • cattnipp

            there is nothing lower than one who spouts lies they have been taught to recite without doing any honest research and claiming to be THE AUTHORITY on the subject…… the Qur’an does not say that a man can beat his wife— it does not exist in the Qur’an…. yes in Muslim culture a man is allowed to “beat” his wife—- but there are very strict rules…. and ‘beat’ is a very loose translation— if the Christian society had these rules it would save millions of christian womens lives— the term is better translated as ‘admonish’ instead of ‘beat’ —- in order to have this permission from God a man must speak to his wife, even beg his wife to change her view to match his…. this must occur for three days…… if she does not agree, he may then refuse to share her bed, to show he is displeased… again for 3 nights…. if she still does not agree he may actually put his hands on her, pull her close look into her eyes and explain that he can no longer endure her not listening and even go so far as to use the first “I divorce you” …. IF he causes her so much harm as to make her skin redden, bruise, break a bone, or bleed– he is not considered a REAL man by his neighbors, but an errant child———————— rules like that would have save me a fractured skull, and a few other broken bones given to me by a ‘christian’ husband here in this oh-so-perfect American society ……….. His mother was a christian minister… she told me that GOD had instructed my husband to beat me to make me a better wife——— YOU KNOW NOTHING yet insist that we anoint you with a crown of superior wisdom— if you had ever actually read the Qur’an you would know Allah is merely the Arabic word for ‘god’ that the Qur’an celebrates the virgin birth of Jesus, [an entire chapter titled Mary] AND that the Qur’an declares that Muslims are brothers and sisters to the Jews and Christians because they worship the same God. also you would know that telling lies about God, especially for personal gain (such as claiming to be better than) is the most pure evil, and you will be asked to explain yourself at the end of days.————————

        • jackdiamond

          and the concern of non-Muslims are those commandments and a good Muslim’s submission to them. That includes the obligation to hate the kuffar, to wage war (when the means are available) against non-Muslims and the command to subjugate them under the authority of Islam. Fighting is prescribed for you. (2:216) So is Al Wala Wa Al Baraa, Allegiance only to Muslims and Rejection, Hate, and Enmity for the Other (most especially the Jews and Christians).

          “You will not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose and resist Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their fathers, or their sons, or their brothers or their kindred.” (58:22) Is that one of the commandments you apply? “Take not the Jews & Christians for friends or helpers. They are friends to one another. He among you who takes them for friends is one of them.” (5:51).

          Does that still apply? If not, why not?

          Do you know the term qital (q-t-l)? This is the Arabic translated as “fight” but it really means “kill and slaughter”. Qital has been ordained for you, though you dislike it (2:216); qital those who believe not in Allah, the Last Day, nor hold forbidden what has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth (Islam) even if people of the Book (Jews & Christians) –kill them–until they pay the jizya (ransom tax for their lives) and feel themselves subdued (i.e. humiliated).(9:29). Are these commandments you apply as one who is submissive to Allah? If not why not?

        • Dan Abel

          Needed a religious crutch huh?

          • cattnipp

            by whom??? the Qur’an only allows a Muslim to fight against those individuals who attack them, and if the attacker stops so must the Muslim, on this the Qur’an is very clear, reminding us that if we were to continue we would then become the aggressor… and that God does not love the aggressor.

        • Dan Abel

          You mean like the commandment in the quran that calls for you to wage war against the non believers until they are subdued and say there is no god but allah and muhammad is his messenger, You into that supremacist shit?

          • cattnipp

            none exists outside the imagination of those you trust to instruct you— every instance in the Qur’an when the believers were given permission to fight there were strict boundaries, they are allowed to fight those trying to kill them; those who are trying to or have driven them from their homes…. etc. but in every case, if the attackers stopped attacking you MUST also cease fighting against them or you are then the aggressor….. and God does not love the aggressor —- THAT is what the Qur’an says…… but you are not smart enough to pick up the book and read the truth in and about it— you would rather spread the lies you have been programed to spew

          • cattnipp

            the ONLY people a practicing Muslim is allowed to fight is someone who is attacking them— and if the attacker stops the Muslim must also stop or be considered the aggressor by god……… and the next phrase in the Qur’an is “and God does not love the aggressor” —– read the book instead of gorging yourself on spoon-fed lies and hatred….. hatred is not of God but of the devil

        • Magicmaninthesky Nothanks

          Well Adolf Hitler was a big admirer of Muslims…….and Islam…..so it is not surprising that a brain-dead supremacist would embrace such a moronic cult.

          • cattnipp

            Hitler proclaimed himself to be a devout CHRISTIAN he was murdering Jews in the name of Jesus Christ to make the world a better place for CHRISTIANS ….. stop trying to claim he was Muslim—– the ones who stood up to Hitler best were Muslims….. the Muslims of Albania took their Jewish neighbors into their homes and families to hide them from the Nazis….. it was their DUTY as Muslims to protect their oppressed brothers and sisters—- in all of Albania, no one broke the secret, not one Jewish person was captured in all of Albania.

          • http://pressroom.prlog.org/eLiza1/ Elizabeth Jane

            cattnipp: Here is a quote from Wikipedia on the Waffen SS Division that Hitler had which was (mainly) Bosnian and Croatian Muslim, approved by Hitler in 1943:’ “The romantic notions that Himmler had about the Bosnian Muslims were probably significant in the division’s genesis.[11] He was personally fascinated by the Islamic faith and believed that Islam created fearless soldiers.[9] He found their ferocity preferable to the gentility of Christians and believed their martial qualities should be further developed and put to use.[11] He thought that Muslim men would make perfect SS soldiers as Islam “promises them Heaven if they fight and are killed in action.”[12] ‘

          • cattnipp

            and any person with a computer can post any lie on Wikipedia…….. it is that open…. I could enter on Wikipedia that christian churches ALL allow their elders to gang-rape the 8 year old girls to teach them respect for God and the church…… it would be on Wikipedia, but it would not be true because of the word ALL—- you see at the age of 8, I asked why we were taught to sing ‘Jesus loves all the little children of the world if that was not true…. why was I being taught to sing that and told only white people were loved by God……….. I was gang raped by 3 of the elders… to teach me to respect them and do as they ordered.

            IF you want the right to an opinion about what the Qur’an says READ THE QUR’AN not opinions of known liars about what it says————— when I bought the Qur’an it was because all the lies made me afraid, I wanted to know what we were up against—— I HAVE read the Qur’an dozens of times…… it is beautiful, as a book of favored poems, the Qur’an is a book of peace, and love and comfort, it tells you that your INTENT is what God looks at, so if you try your best you will succeed in pleasing him…….. the term jihad means the struggle to live a life that is pleasing to God. nothing evil or violent

          • http://pressroom.prlog.org/eLiza1/ Elizabeth Jane

            cattnipp: You’re on the side of the religion of “taqiyya” (“taqiyya” – the order by Mohammed to Muslims to lie to kaffirs about Islam in order to advance his demonic religion of Islam). so don’t accuse me of being a liar. I am not lying. I don’t follow a religion that tells me to lie!

            Tell me where you get your contradictory evidence for the “13th Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Handschar (1st Croatian)”? Did you read otherwise in a book? If so what does it say that is contradicting the references I gave from the article about it in Wikipedia? If not from a book where does your denial of the facts come from? Are you saying that anything on the internet is a lie? That assertion, if that is the claim you are making, would suit a liar who didn’t want to be contradicted by facts.

          • cattnipp

            how very kind of you to explain to me that I embrace lies and terrorism and the rape of children—– I have never in my life thought these things were okay, even the consideration is not something I would have ever encouraged —- but you WOULD know more about me, my life, and my thoughts than I ever would ———— when was it that you became GOD???? — how badly will you punish me for defying your commandment??

          • http://pressroom.prlog.org/eLiza1/ Elizabeth Jane

            “Taqiyya”? What does it mean cattnipp? I’ll tell you what it means! It means lying to “kaffirs” to advance Islam. And who tells you to lie to advance Islam? Mohammed? And who do you believe Mohammed to be? The messenger of your GOD cattnipp! So your GOD is a god of lies and, as a Muslim, you are a liar by definition and we should beware of you. YOUR religion, YOUR “perfect human being”, Mohammed, and YOUR god. And, while I did not mention the rape of children – YOU did – the rape of children is a part of your religion and is sanctioned by YOUR GOD, since your “perfect human being” and “God’s messenger” Mohammed married a six year old child and raped her after grooming her at the age of nine years old – your “perfect human being” is a common paedophile, and you follow his teachings as do Muslims all over the World, and if you don’t follow all of his teachings and “pick and choose” then, according to your “prophet” you are not a Muslim. So it is your GOD who is giving you the right to rape children and I judge you on what YOU believe to be true – as a Muslim that IS what you believe!

            I judge you by what you believe as a Muslim – which is the words and deeds of Mohammed. You can’t be a Muslim and not be judged according to Islam, which is the pernicious and evil rubbish that you keep advocating to everyone on this site, while claiming that you are being misrepresented and victimized. You are a liar and your religion is a religion of lies and hatred of anyone who isn’t a Muslim (“Kaffirs”). And you beat women into submission!

          • cattnipp

            you are a 100% bigoted fool —- Muslims are constantly reminded in the Qur’an that God sees into their heart and they will be held responsible for EVERY misdeed, even stepping on an insect ——- but YOU…. YOU claim that YOU CAN SEE INTO GOD’S HEART and also tell God whom God is allowed to love and whom God is commanded (by you) to hate…………….. also you claim to understand the thought and heart of EVERY being in creation, declaring yourself as better than the creator himself is most hubris, and evil

      • MarilynA

        thanks to Bill Clinton and Hillary/ Obama militant Muslims are now embedded in all our government agencies via civil service and cannot be fired. This country has not had so many anti American traitors embedded in our civil service since FDR loaded government agencies down with Communists. It took Joseph McCarthy to expose FDR’s treasonous action and for his trouble his name and reputation will forever be blackened as evil. Who will be willing to come forward and expose this treasons.

  • Veracious_one

    Muslim bikers of one sort or the other have been terrorizing people for a long time in many countries…motorbike drivebys are common in Muslim areas…as are motorbike bombs…..

      wow….. just like christians and jews…….. how evil can they get?

      • Veracious_one

        please provide links to where any Christian or Jew has committed a suicide bomb attack while riding a motorbike and yelling “God is great”…

        • cattnipp

          how about you show me how many who call themselves Muslim use planes to commit their terror activities—- being on a motorcycle instead of a plane or tank does not make them ‘the worse terrorist’ ——- and I can tell you that jews and christians have a long history of terrorist acts….. the fact they were not on a motor bike at the time does not excuse the terrorism.

          • Veracious_one

            I’m not calling Muslims who become suicide bombers terrorists, that’s what Muslims who become suicide bombers call themselves… they’re just following 8:12 Allah announced that a thousand angels joined the Muslims to smite the Quraysh (v. 9), and that he had “inspired the angels (with the message): “˜I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them– (v. 12). The Tafsir Al-Jalalayn explains: “that is, [smite] the extremities of their hands and feet: thus, when one of them went to strike an disbeliever’s head, it would roll off before his sword reached it.” V. 12 became one of the chief justifications for the Islamic practice “” then and now “” of beheading hostages and war captives. At the beheading of American hostage Nicholas Berg in May 2004, for example, the now-dead Iraqi jihad leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi invoked the great battle: “Is it not time for you [Muslims] to take the path of jihad and carry the sword of the Prophet of prophets?”¦The Prophet, the most merciful, ordered [his army] to strike the necks of some prisoners in [the battle of] Badr and to kill them”¦.And he set a good example for us.”so as you can see they are not being the worst terrorist, they are being pious Islamic terrorists and good ones at that….

          • cattnipp

            the passage is one where they are being asked to remember a past battle…….. NOT a commandment to kill— are you comfortable with the concept that at the end of days you will have to explain your misdeeds to the creator??? God sees what is in our hearts and we will be made to answer for our INTENT……… what is your intent with this claim that all who believe in Allah (the ARABIC word for god, same god as worshiped by christians and jews) are terrorists and are proud to proclaim it aloud????

    • John

      Nope. Mostly Lebanese Muslims and Christian Assyrians from Iraq that are causing the middle eastern ruckus in Australia. Don’t get me wrong there are trouble makers from all backgrounds but those are the big ones. The Australian Government can’t “deport” them because they aren’t refugees, they are usually 2nd and 3rd generation Australians with Australian passports and citizenships just products of the prejudice, discrimination, low income and employment and lack of education previous generations had to go through, not to mention the war infested slums they originally escaped from.

      • cattnipp

        just whom have the Muslims destroyed……. during the time the Muslims held nearly all of the middle east they did not destroy churches or synagogues… they refused to pray in established churches for fear that later generations would lose their way and attempt to destroy said church to place a Mosque on the site, they would go to open fields to pray and protect the churches —– indeed non-Muslims in Muslim countries are paying a special ‘tax’ because they are non-Muslim….. the tax goes to a special fund to care for the indigent, and Muslims pay twice what non-believers do into this fund….. the fund cares for those in need with no regard to what their religion is……. The Qur’an states clearly that 1/5 of all you possess is actually in God’s view the property of the poor placed in your care to help with their care.

Before the run the then president of that club addressed a large crowd of families who had attended to see the collection of bikes. He delivered the finest speech I have ever heard, which is no mean feat given that I have written speeches for Federal Government Ministers and attended over 30 National ANZAC Day and 30 Remembrance Day Ceremonies plus many other ceremonies of national significance.
