Should we really be surprised? Islam maintains no respect whatsoever for the existing laws and order of non- Muslim countries. So this latest development should come as no shock.
Instead of perpetuating false outrage, we should condemn the treasonous politicians that ignored the consequences of mass Islamic immigration, and pursue an alternative path conducive to our national interest.
“Wife of IS recruiter could be the first person in NSW charged with disrespecting court”, news.com.au, December 9, 2016:
The wife of a convicted Islamic State recruiter could be the first person in NSW to be charged for refusing to stand in court.
Moutia Elzahed, one of the two wives of terrorist recruiter Hamdi Alqudsi, caused a stir in the courtroom after she refused to stand for the presiding District Court Judge Audrey Balla.
“I noticed on Wednesday and today the first plaintiff doesn’t stand as I come to and leave the bench. Is there a reason?” Judge Balla asked.
Elzahed, through her barrister Clive Evatt, responded saying her refusal was “to do with a religious belief”, and that she “won’t stand for anyone except Allah”.
“She’s a Muslim, Your Honour, a strict Muslim and according to my instructions she won’t stand for anyone except Allah, which I’m not particularly happy with, Your Honour,” he said.
Elzahed also refused to remove her veil, saying she would not give evidence by doing so unless all the men in the courtroom looked away.
The judge offered to close the court or allow her to give evidence through a video link, but she rejected both offers as they still would have required her to remove her face-covering.
Elzahed, her husband and their two teenage sons are suing the Commonwealth of Australia over the counter-terrorism raids that took place in 2014.
The family claims they were assaulted when police officers raided their Revesby home in Sydney’s southwest.
The woman will potentially be charged for her behaviour in the courtroom, in accordance with a law introduced on September 1 this year by the NSW government regarding respect for court proceedings….
