5 Reasons to Question the Official Story of the ‘Sydney Siege’

by Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
Dec 15, 2014

In the aftermath of yet another highly publicized terror attack (or at least the potential for a high profile attack) in Australia by foreign-born jihadists, the Western public is once again experiencing a variety of emotional reactions that they have carefully been trained to experience whenever such events take place at home or abroad.

The xenophobic pro-war right is predictably using the attack as an example of how all Muslims are terrorists and how their total annihilation and implementation of police state tactics are the only solution. The pathetic left-wing is attempting to portray the gunman as a “lone nut” with no political motives as a justification for more “anti-terror” laws. The vast majority in the middle, however, believe the official mainstream version of events, quake in their boots, and move on to the next form of entertainment provided to them by the culture creators without a second thought.

Yet, as is almost always the case, there is much more to the story than is being reported by mainstream outlets. There exists a number of unanswered questions and unexplained inconsistencies with the story of “Man Haron Monis” and his hostage taking escapade in Sydney.

1.) Man Haron Monis (aka Manteghi Boroujerdi) is Shiia, not Sunni.

While the mainstream reports may suggest that Monis is yet another ISIS-style terrorist that finally attempted to rise and meet his destiny by engaging in terrorist attacks in the West, there are a number of problems with the presentation in terms of details.

Western media reports that, among other ludicrous demands, Monis requested to be provided with an ISIS flag while holding up the café in the Sydney business district. The problem, however, is that Monis is Shiia, not Sunni. Sunni, of course, is the brand of Islam that ISIS espouses. While both sects see their share of fundamentalism, the twain do not mix.

Why then, would a Shiia cleric (fundamentalist or otherwise) request an IS flag at the scene of his crime for all the world to see?

2.) Is Monis A “Liberal Muslim” Or A “Fundamentalist Muslim?”

While the absurd request for an IS flag during the course of an act of violence being committed by a Shitte Muslim is enough to convince the average spectator that Monis was a member of ISIS, there is a distinct lack of consistency in the way in which Monis has been portrayed in the Western media. Nearly ten years ago, Monis was presented as a “liberal Muslim” preaching a brand of tolerant and mainstream Islam. Since 2013, however, Monis has been presented as both a murderer and now a terrorist. While the latter may certainly be true, the presentations are nonetheless contradictory.

Indeed, as Tony Cartalucci of Land Destroyer reports in his article “Who Created Cartoon Character’Man Haron Monis’ Behind ‘Sydney Siege’ Crisis,” Monis has spoken glowingly of the West in the past; Canada, the United States, and Australia in particular. In an interview with The Religion Report of the Australian ABC, he stated,

…we can say Australia, Canada, England, USA, so many western countries, they are religious societies. They don’t say ‘We are religious’, but in fact the spirit of religion, we can see the spirit of religion in these societies. And some other countries in the Middle East, in Asia, they say ‘We are Islamic’ they have a name of Islamic, but in fact they are not religious societies and religious governments. Whenever I walk in the street, whenever I go out in Australia, I feel I am in a real religious society. I don’t want to say it is perfect, we don’t have a perfect society on the earth, but when we compare, if we compare Australia with Iran and other countries in the Middle East, we can say it is heaven.

These are hardly the words of an Islamic terrorist filled with hatred for the West. Yet that is exactly what Monis is portrayed as being in later years. Indeed, there is little evidence to the contrary that the assailant was, in fact, Monis. The question then, is why the contradictory behavior and media portrayal of Monis.

3.) Monis Served US/NATO/West’s Interests As Propaganda Tool Against Iran

Before Monis became the star of Sunday evening/Monday morning news, he served as a convenient agent of propaganda against the government of Iran, itself a major target of NATO and the West.

The ‘Selfie’ Obsession: A Chronic, Narcissistic Mental Disorder

21st Century Wire asks…
[Dec 13, 2014]

Does this picture make you uncomfortable?

Obama-Biden-SelfiePresident Obama and VP Biden: Was it just horse play, insecurity, or do they have compulsive narcissist tendencies?

Well, it should. As a member of the voting public, it should make you feel more than awkward seeing your top two chief executives engrossed in one of the most banal contemporary pastimes ever – taking a ‘Selfie’ [noun. a picture taken of a person, by that person].

One also must consider the very real possibility that these two men might be suffering from one of many mental conditions, including Body Dysmorphic Disorder, that are afflicting millions of smart phone users worldwide…

1-Gym-Selfie‘Gym Selfies’ are now some of the most popular forms of digital exhibitionism.

Everyone is taking selfies now. Should we really be worried about this trend, or is it just a case of people being empowered on a microblogging platform like Twitter, or Instagram? Writer Donna Highfill explains, “I have run into at least 10 people recently who have stopped on fast-moving, heavily-populated sidewalks to take a #selfie. There is no historical building behind them, no beautiful landscape, no real reason to take a picture of themselves other than the fact that they can reverse the camera on the phone, gaze at their own visage, and then share it on social media so the rest of the world can gaze upon it as well.”

“If smartphones were ponds, a large portion of our population would have already drowned.”

No one is immune. Even celebrities who you’d think are already getting enough face time are still drawn to the cheap narcissistic released provided by the selfie.

Yesterday, the digital oligarchs at Twitter declared 2014 as the ‘Year of the Selfie‘. According to executives there, the most popular, the most retweeted, ‘tweet’ of the year was by comedian Ellen DeGeneres at the Oscar awards last March – with her celebrity ‘friends’, including Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep, and Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt. Her Tweet was ‘favorited’ over 2 million times and retweeted 3.3 million times.

It later turned out that DeGeneres’s spontaneous selfie was just another corporate money-making scam, as was confirmed by the Wall Street Journal. Samsung executives even had to teach Degeneres how to use the Galaxy Note 3 device before the Oscars.

No occasion is sacred either, including somber events like funerals (see photo of Obama, Cameron and Danish PM further down article). Obama’s funeral gaffe went on to inspire other more macabre copycat selfies…

From a pop psychology perspective, the textbook definition of narcissism is fairly harmless, described as, “extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one’s own talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type.” From a psychoanalysis point of view, it’s much more critical: “self-centeredness arising from failure to distinguish the self from external objects, either in very young babies or as a feature of mental disorder.”

Experts are now finding through new clinical studies, that this existing narcissistic mental disorder is now being further exacerbated by the introduction of hand-held technology and the ability to upload an image to a ready-made crowd of voyeurs in a matter of seconds.

MUST LISTEN — Radio 3Fourteen – Sofia Smallstorm – Humanity 2.0

Radio 3Fourteen
Dec 10, 2014

Sofia Smallstorm is best known for her research on 9/11, which culminated in the documentary 9/11 Mysteries. She is also known for her analysis of chemtrails. We’ll discuss the tools being used to create humanity 2.0. It would appear there is an agenda to synthetically re-engineer humanity, both physically and mentally. We’ll talk about what some of these aspects the elite would find useful to change may be and how it can be done. How far might this go? Sofia talks about the attributes that seem to be emerging in humanity 2.0. Also, we discuss the secular humanist, transhumanist movement or techno-progressivism that seeks to make man superior but “equal” across the globe. As Earthlings are bombarded with an onslaught of synthetic elements, we’ll discuss how we can remain relatively untouched. Will we see a separation between humanity 1.0 and humanity 2.0? Will we be able to reverse the damage that may occur?

FOX Upset, Demanding Australians Call Sydney Siege a “Terrorist Attack”

21st Century Wire says…
[Dec 15, 2014]

The Sydney Siege has come and gone, with what looks like another example of a known nut case who let out on the streets by the Security Services, only to reek havoc on the community.

Australian SWAT police ended the 16-hour hostage standoff started by 50-year-old self-styled, Iranian-born Muslim ‘cleric’, Man Haron Monis, as police did a blitz-style assault on the Lindt chocolate store in Martins Place in Sydney.

1-Sydney-Sheik
Terror actor Monis played the role of shady ‘Sheikh’ in Australian media long before the incident yesterday.

Monis is said to have a very long and disturbingly long criminal rap sheep which includes among other things, multiple counts of sexual assault, and an accessory to murder charge.

He was also a local media darling, well known to local press and on social media playing the role of ‘Sheikh‘, including a role in a publicity stunt where Monis wrote inflammatory and insulting letters to Australian troops and families of troops who served in US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Critics are raising questions as to whether or Sydney police intelligence unit were involved in ‘managing’ Monis as an informant, or whether or not he was being supervised by a government psychologist and taking SSRI anti-psychotic medication. Even Prime Minister Tony Abbott admitted that Monis was “well known to authorities” and had a history of “extremism and mental instability”.

Incredibly, Monis was allowed to roam the streets on bail instead of being detained in a secure criminal or mental facility – where he clearly belonged.

1-aNDREA-OutnumberedMeanwhile, the lunatic right at FOX News was upset that the rest of the media wasn’t labeling it an ‘ISIS Attack’. During the channel’s plastic surgery showcase program, ‘Outnumbered’, today media debutante, Andrea Tantaros, appeared visibly upset that the Australian government was not calling the incident a “terrorist event”. Notice the standard fear propaganda scripted lines delivered by Tantaros:

“ISIS has been calling for these ‘lone wolf’ attacks on countries like Australia for a while.”

The mere fact that FOX has no actual proof other than hyperpbole, doesn’t stop Tantaros from demanding state-sanctioned fear mongering, flippantly demanding, “I don’t know what the Australian leadership won’t call this a terrorist attack”.

Listen to her clip hear:
Tantaros-Sydney

Other US media outlets, including the Washington Post, carried on the fear mongering:

“The long showdown riveted the world’s attention and raised questions over the possibility of another so-called “lone wolf” attack inspired by militants such as the Islamic State.”

The outcome of the siege now focuses on whether hostages were killed by gunman Monis, or died in cross-fire.

If it is indeed ruled that hostages were shot by hair-trigger police, government officials will no doubt come under heavy criticism and even embarrassment over the botched operation.

(Warning…RANT AHEAD…) See also “Five Facts About the Crony Interest in Food Stamps” now up on our website to go along with this video: http://truthstreammedia.com/five-fact…

Wow, we didn’t realize we can call up our very own food stamp outreach coordinator to help us not only find out if we qualify for food stamps, but help us fill out the application AND help us again when it’s time to reapply for more food stamps, too! Why, they’ll just about do everything but buy the groceries and deliver them to our house for us!

But wait a minute! With a record number of Americans on food stamps (it’s what, 47 million people now and counting?), why are they advertising and pushing food stamps so hard and making it so easy to get them and making sure as many people as possible do?

HM… (Yes. That would be the sarcastic “hm” of people who ask a rhetorical question they obviously already know the answer to.)

What in the hell is this??? (You know, besides yet another blazing neon eyeball-melting signal of the decline of America.)
