Mmmh.[Update]

Ich habe ja viele Zuschriften bekommen zu dem Artikel über den Christchurch-Attentäter und die Al-Quaeda-Meme, die ja, was normale Leute wie ich nicht wissen, so’n Geblubber aus 4chan, 8chan oder sonstigem Blödsinn mit vielen Bernds sein.

Nun schreibt mir aber einer etwas, was ein völlig anderes Licht darauf wirft. Im Internet-Archiv sei nämlich ein alter Artikel von 2014 von stuff.co.nz zu finden, den es im Original nicht mehr gibt, in dem es um eben diese Al-Noor Moschee und darum geht, dass dort ein radikaler Islamismus stattfinde. Die in Australien christlich aufgewachsenen Brüder Daryl und Nathan seien nach Christchurch gekommen und dort zu radikalen Muslimen gewandelt worden.

Daryl, 30 when he died, moved to Sydney around 2008 and converted to Islam soon after arriving. Nathan, still in Christchurch, converted soon after with the help of Saudi Arabian students he was friendly with. […]

In Sydney, Daryl began attending the Lakemba Mosque, known as a hotbed of radicalism, and drew the attention of counter-terrorism authorities because of the company he kept.

He changed his name to Muslim bin John, married a Somali woman and around 2009 headed to Saudi Arabia and then Yemen, ancestral home of Osama bin Laden and home base of al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). […]

Born in Australia on September 14, 1983, Daryl Anthony Jones and his family moved to New Zealand, his mother’s home country, when he was about six or seven. Those who knew Jones used the same words to describe him: quiet, shy, soft-spoken, gentle, polite. […]

Fish said he heard Jones had moved to an Arab country where he was studying the Koran “or something like that.

“I heard through an old friend that he’d been missing for a while and then we saw the thing about a New Zealander being killed in a drone strike. “It just clicked – ‘oh, it was him’.”

Jones was killed alongside Australian Christopher Havard, whose parents said he was introduced to radical Islam at the Al-Noor mosque in Christchurch.

Mosque leaders confirmed Havard stayed there and studied in 2011, but denied radical teaching took place. But a man who attended a converts’ weekend at the mosque 10 years ago said a visiting speaker from Indonesia talked about violent jihad and plenty shared his views. “Most of the men were angry with the moral weakness of New Zealand. I would say they were radical.”

Jones’ radicalisation was a gradual process. It appears he listened to controversial speakers on the internet, such as Anwar al-Awlaki, a US citizen taken out by a drone in Yemen in 2011, and mixed with radicals in Sydney.

An Egyptian immigrant who has seen first-hand how Muslims are recruited for jihad said Western converts were vulnerable because, besides feeling marginalised from Western society, they were curious about their new religion and wanted to dig deeper. “The [recruiters] have a brainwashing process known as CRA – conversion, radicalisation and activation,” said the source. “Once the person is radicalised, they tell them, ‘here is your role, your responsibility’. Now the person feels they have something to do, to be important, to be someone.”

Australian media reported Jones was known to Australian Federal Police (AFP) as an “Islamic radical” and the subject of numerous border protection reports. He and Havard had their Australian passports cancelled in 2012 because it was feared they posed a threat to national security.

Havard was the subject of an AFP arrest warrant over the kidnapping of Westerners in Yemen in December, 2012. It is not known if Jones, who reportedly fought under the name Abu Suhaib al-Australi, was involved.

Last week New Zealand Islamic convert Mark Taylor, now apparently fighting in Syria, told The Australian Jones tried to recruit him to al-Qaeda in Yemen in 2009. Taylor, also known as Muhammad Daniel, claimed that at one point Jones had flown back to Australia to get a Saudi Arabia visa to work as a teacher, and was met by British intelligence agents hoping he would work with them.

Ach.

Wenn das stimmt, wurden also australische Christen in dieser Moschee konvertiert, hatten Verbindungen nach Sydney, gingen dann nach Jemen/Syrien, zumindest dieser eine habe versucht, sich Al-Quaeda anzuschließen und sei dann bei einem Dronen-Angriff ums Leben gekommen.

Und plötzlich erscheinen die Aussagen aus diesem Manifest gar nicht mehr so absurd-willkürlich, wie manche Leser das darstellten.

Warum reist einer von Australien nach Christchurch, obwohl Wellington und Auckland größer und bekannter sind, und es noch eine Vielzahl eher mittlerer Städte gibt, um gerade in dieser Moschee ein Blutbad anzurichten, von der aus angeblich mindestens diese zwei Australier auf radikal gedreht sind und einer auf dem Weg zu Al-Quaeda durch Dronenangriffe starb, um dann in einem Manifest von Al-Quaeda und Navy-Seals zu faseln?

Bisschen viel Zufall.

Eine amerikanische Singapur-Chinesin hat da auch einen interessanten Hinweis. Oder besser gesagt eine Frage. Nämlich die, warum am Anschlag eines weißen Australiers alle weißen Australier Mitschuld haben sollen,während es bei islamischen Attentätern immer heißt, man dürfe das keinesfalls auf andere verallgemeinern. Denn dort bei slate.com heißt es:

Shame and apology is not enough in confronting our country’s virulent racism.

Who is responsible for the terrorist attack that killed at least 50 New Zealanders as they prayed in their mosques? Looked at one way, the answer is simple: The shooter alone bears the guilt for his crimes. But the picture is wider than that. […]

So why do I feel so guilty? And why am I so angry not just at the obvious targets, but at my country?

I’m a white Australian. I know that blaming myself and my cohort is illogical, but I can’t escape the feeling that all of white Australia is implicated in the deaths—a white majority that has fomented and let foment hate. Though he may have labeled himself a European, 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant was an Aussie through and through, growing up in a country town north of Sydney, steeped in mainstream Australian racism and our particular national brand of Islamophobia. He grew up in the same Murdoch-controlled mass media environment that the rest of us did—one that recently trashed Islam 2,891 times in a single year—and under the same governments, with prime ministers who have repeatedly stoked anti-Muslim sentiment for votes, with one major party making it central to their electoral strategy. […]

I’ve long felt that racism is Australia’s most serious problem, our “festering sore”—I’ve written about it before. Many other Aussies have also been unsurprised, as I was, to learn that Tarrant was one of ours—but that lack of surprise should be more damning, not less. […]

We are a nation born of shame. A white-majority Australia exists only as the result of a genocidal invasion—another irony missed by Tarrant (and Trump) in his rants about invasion. […]

White Australians may not be strictly answerable for Tarrant’s crime, but we have some big questions to ask ourselves. If you’re an Australian and reading this makes you feel defensive, you should ask them now.

Schuldig durch Hautfarbe. Schuldig an Rassismus.

Manche schrieben mir übrigens, dass der oben erwähnte Artikel verschwunden sei, weil die neuseeländische Regierung den habe verschwinden lassen, aber ich weiß bisher nicht, wann der eigentlich verschwunden ist, ob das vor oder nach dem Anschlag war.

Bemerkenswert auch, dass man dort jetzt eine intensive Jagd auf Leute macht, die das Tat-Video da „geteilt” haben, es drohen bis zu 14 Jahre Haft. Was alleine schon die Betrachtungsweise befeuert, da wolle man etwas verbergen.

Apropos verbergen:

Man schrieb mir auch, was in Neuseeland da gerade seltsam Karriere macht. Zunächst sei – wie zu erwarten – durch die dortige Social Media-Szene eine Welle von Mitgefühls- und Lob- und Liebes-Bekundungen zugunsten von Muslimen geschwappt, die – wie zu erwarten – organisiert wirkte.

Die nun habe dazu geführt, dass sich andere, die das anders sehen, da erst mal in entgegengesetzter Richtung ausgekotzt hätten.

Was wiederum dazu geführt habe, dass einer im Fernsehen das Deutsche Netzdurchsetzungsgesetz hoch gelobt und für Neuseeland gefordert habe, weil wir hier damit so gute Erfahrungen gemacht hätten. Online-Video oder Transkript dazu habe ich noch nicht, das dauert da wohl immer etwas und war wohl erst gestern im Fernsehen.

Da dürften sich dann wohl zwei Fronten hochschaukeln.

Update: Hier gibt es noch einen Artikel Online über den Zusammenhang zwischen dieser Moschee, Daryl Jones und Al-Quaeda.
