Powder keg fears
5 December 2023, Daily Telegraph, Letters
Stand by Australia (Palestine sparks fatal Paris terror attacker, 4/12).
The Israel-Hamas war has stirred the anti-Jewish and pro Palestine reactionaries around the globe and Australia is no exception.
We have a powder keg in this country just waiting for someone with a lit match.
So far the pro-Palestine demonstrations have been relatively peaceful but this can change like the weather.
Right now Israel is stepping up its attacks following the ceasefire (Hamas wipe-out will end this war, 4/12). This was to be expected because Israel is rightly determined to wipe out Hamas.
This will almost certainly excite the pro-Palestinian mob as well as potential Islamic extremists.
As I see it, the likelihood of a terrorist attack on Australian soil has escalated to a point where it is now highly probable.
The question is, what will be the first target: in Sydney or Melbourne?
Both state and federal governments need to act proactively otherwise we will be caught out once again.
