Goulburn Jail: Allah Is the Cry in the Worst Riot for Ten Years

Janet Fife-Yeomans, Daily Telegraph, September 22, 2014

Prison officers in riot gear have used tear gas to control maximum security inmates who tore apart Goulburn Jail in a racially fuelled riot ­described as the biggest in 10 years.

With shouts of “Allah Akbar”, prisoners armed with homemade weapons threatened guards and smashed through an internal fence at the state’s toughest jail, which was in lockdown yesterday.

Police investigations are continuing today.

Tensions have been running high in the prison system as federal and NSW police step up their surveillance of suspected terrorists and any of their associates inside and outside prisons after the country’s terror alert was raised to high.

A source has revealed how the violence began in the maximum wing of the Goulburn facility about 3pm on Saturday when a number of ringleaders refused to line up for afternoon muster.

The source said the unrest had begun as a result of some privileges being requested–and denied–for a handful of inmates, but the situation quickly turned into a full-scale riot along religious lines.

“They’d been knocked back something . . .,” the source said. “The issue wasn’t a Muslim-related issue, but it was the Muslim guys who got into it, yelling out to Allah.

“They were refusing to go into their cells. They refused to line up, then it went from there and exploded.”

The prison officers had “geared-up” as soon as they sensed trouble.

The riot did not involve convicted terrorists held in Goulburn’s Supermax, who remain under constant surveillance.

Those inmates include ­Mohamed Ali Elomar who is serving a 21-year sentence for his leadership in the 2005 ­Pendennis terror plot.

He is the uncle of former boxer Mohamed Elomar, one of the Australian jihadis currently fighting with the Islamic State in Syria. Mohamed Elomar is with Khaled Sharrouf, who had been jailed along with Ali Elomar over the 2005 plot and fled overseas last year when he was released from jail.

Following Saturday’s riots, seven ringleaders were segregated and four were seen by medical staff for minor injuries. Corrective Services NSW confirmed it had used chemicals on Saturday against inmates who caused damage but denied reports that it was religiously motivated.

“Inmate unrest began about 3pm yesterday after staff informed inmates in that yard that a good behaviour privilege was being withdrawn, due to earlier verbal abuse of correctional staff,” a spokesman said.

NSW Premier Mike Baird said: “I have every confidence in Corrective Services in keeping our community safe.

    In all these prison riots which have been going on all over the world for decades, put them all in the central yard and let them either kill each other or gas them.

    Why bother saving any of them?

    • OS-Q

      Stuff them in a flaming boat full of garlic and rosemary and point it to New Guinea.

      • Lagerstrom

        Don’t forget the tabolleh, eh!

      This story reminds me of a time when I worked in a maximum security facility and the warden decided it would be a good idea to cart out 6 thirty gallon containers of watermelon onto a recreation yard filled with over 300 Blacks. The Black inmates were celebrating the birthday of one of the founders of the “gangster disciples” which they referred to as King David.
      I was working tower duty in between two recreation yards and got a birds eye view of the whole thing as it unfolded.
      When the Blacks discovered what was being brought out they stormed the gate knocking over several corrections staff and swarmed the containers like an army of ants. Several scuffles broke out while the White and Latino gang members retreated to opposite corners of the yard. Mace was then used by staff to try and break up the melee while Black inmates leaped on top or over each other to snatch as many pieces of melon as possible and then retreat to a corner to devour it.
      This process went on for about 5 minutes at which time there was no melon left. The Blacks then returned to the yard and started grooming each other braiding their hair and sitting on the concrete picnic tables. It was something that you would expect to see on national geographic.

    What can anyone say, Australia could have easily avoided race riots by not allowing in non-British Isles peoples, or at least non-Europeans. They could have segregated the White and Aboriginal prison populations and saved themselves a lot of grief.

    • benvad

      Should have kept it British Isles based, even when you let in former Yugoslavs they deteriorate into fighting factions like Croats, Serbians, Macedonians and Greeks. Old world conflicts in new world land.

      • M.

        Southeastern Europeans are barely European, racially.

        • Ngati Pakeha

          They use to use the word wog to describe blacks as well. Much to the chagrin of those from Greece and its immediate environs.

        • benvad

          I’ve worked with a bunch of them. They throw it around quite liberally by the way.

  • Easyrhino

    Solution: Deport them back to their country of origin where they can pray to Allah 20 times/day, also ban them from re-entry and save the Australian tax-payer the burden of having to support them.

    • me

      Too expensive. A bullet costs around three Australian dollars. These criminal thugs don’t deserve anything more.

  • Chip Carver

    The people who worked behind the scenes to enact the traitorous
    Immigration Act of 1965 in the US were part of the same “crew” that
    worked behind the scenes to implement Australia’s “Universal Migration
    Policy” – which basically changed Australian immigration from white to
    non-white. Anyone who says that there are no conspiracies and that these
    people do not work in unison as a solid group against whites is an
    absolute and total liar.

    • none of your business

      The ADL recently set up a branch in Australia. It’s alleged purpose is not to look out for Jews but to fight for the rights of all minorities and immigrants meaning muslims.
      I live not far from the west coast headquarters of ADL. Its symbol is an ADL banner wrapped around a globe. They don’t even try to hide their objective any more.

      • Chip Carver

        I’ve seen it many a time. I have no doubt that it’s consider an inside joke worthy of knee-slapping amongst the self-deceptive hypocrites.

  • Steven Barr

    Australia I believe is one of the best Western countries in terms of Muslims. Only one percent alrhough that’s still too many.

    • Musashi5000

      Yes, it’s exactly one percent too many.

      Zero percent would be ideal.

      • NoMosqueHere

        Islam in our midst is like urine in the water cooler; any amount is too much.

  • Steven Barr

    I believe a lot of the Muslims in Australia are Lebanese. Lebanese were allowed to immigrate prior to the seventies because they passed as white under the White Australia policy.

    • Bantu_Education

      I think most of the earlier Lebanese immigrants were Christians. Many of them adopted Jewish-sounding surnames like Solomon or Simon.

      • propagandaoftruth

        The Lebanese I knew were Levantine Christians who assimilated rapidly. Med White racially, culturally White too.

        Not the same as a Sunni Muslim. Islam is a black religion and attracts people with black genetics and propensities, especially Sunni Islam. It is the main ideological grease for the sub-Saharan genetic pump also known as Gaia’s revenge, civilization’s greatest enemy.

        Between Islam and Messianic Democratic Totalitarianism (substitute liblefty cultural Marxism if you like for that second one)…

        No high-standard, White civilization can be allowed to exist. Have sex with lot’s of blacks and their spawn, who are also black. 70 + 100 = 170/2 = 85 = Barak Obama, Kim Kardashian, failure, collapse, and eventually Sharia law.

        Islam is a black religion.

    • benvad

      Canada did the same thing but they were all Christians and just assimilated like any other ethnic group. Think Paul Anka and that’s what the Lebanese in Canada are like.

      • M.

        The U.S. did the same too. That’s why most Arab-Americans are Christian.

        • benvad

          Give me Jamie Farr & Danny Thomas over anyone named Muhammad.

    • M.

      The Lebanese are the whitest of Arabs, yes. Especially the Christian ones, who weren’t involved in the slave business.

      One could hardly tell Ralph Nader from any dark-haired indigenous European.

      • none of your business

        They are not Arabs. Because of being Christian they did not marry Arabs but within their group so they still look like their pre 650AD Arab invasion ancestors did.

        • M.

          Well, they speak Arabic, or a dialect thereof. So I guess in that sense they’re Arab. But they seem to have been less exposed to invading armies that came from the Arabian peninsula. Those who intermarried became Muslim. So most of those who remained Christian today didn’t mix, yes.

          Also, Muslim slavers used to have children with their black slaves. Non-Muslims weren’t allowed to own any. So that helped too.

    • Ngati Pakeha

      I will have to agree with some of the other commentators here that the Lebanese who arrived in this part of the world 40 years ago were Christian Maronites who on the whole caused no problems. The mainly Muslim lot that came later are the real issue as evidenced here.

  • Dune coons are naturally volatile. You see it constantly and there’s no solution for it. You have muzzies in your backyard, you’ll have these chimpouts on a recurring basis. Deportation after serving their terms is the only effective solution to it.

    • MBlanc46

      They’ll explode into violence even against overwhelming odds. If you read Islamic history, you’ll find dozens of cases of some minor sheikh and a few dozen followers rising up against the caliph, only to be massacred.

      • Musashi5000

        Their infantile, hyper-emotional tendencies a big part of why they accomplish so little….excepting creating misery and destruction, of course.

      • Lagerstrom

        I’m down with that Mel.

  • B.A_2014

    Really?
    Is this true?
    It’s so hard to believe.
    PLZ say it isn’t so!

  • White Mom in WDC

    Anyone bearing the name Mohammed needs to be expatriated out of the USA ASAP or executed with the promise of 40 virgins on the other side.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Forty virgins? What makes you think they get 40 virgins on the other side when they’re too ugly on earth to even get a date?!??

    • Dave West

      I think they actually get 72 virgins.

      Hopefully the 72 virgins muslim idiots encounter when they “cross-over’ to the other side turn out to be 72 male comi-con fanatics.

      • LHathaway

        72 virgins sounds more like the appetite of a promiscuous youth in the inner city, at least if you’re talking about white virgins.

      • Lagerstrom

        72 virgins of what sex?

        • Dave West

          male… I mentioned that in my post!

          • Who Me?

            I don’t think the male virgins need be human…

          • LHathaway

            I could give up my interest in WN politics, but I could never give up being a fan of Star Trek. Nice try, though. I have strong feelings about each. I suppose someone less interested in WN likely read your post and clicked on the X at the top right and will never return.

            Keep up your hard work. It’s likely paying off.

          • OS-Q

            Considering how Afghans and Pakistanis rape boys almost as much as girls, I think they’d be fine with it.

            Though I wonder how they’d like being each others virgins.

          • LHathaway

            Perhaps this is true in the West. I don’t know. In their own habitats they hardly rape at all. There is practically zero rape in most Muslim nations in the mideast. If you think this is a matter of semantics or definition or some kind of slight-of-hand, there is almost zero murder in most Muslim nations in the mideast. AIDS is also extremely rare in these countries. As is having children outside of marriage.

      • Bantu_Education

        I suppose Muslim women get 72 hairy moustaches.

  • JustJeff

  • And don’t forget to ‘Celebrate Diversity!’

    • Lagerstrom

      There was a ‘mosque open-day’ after all the hoo-hah down here in Aussie-land.
      Certain people declare their intention to abduct an Aussie and saw his/her head off in public, whilst filming it. Then our leaders want us to go ’round to their place and say hello! Figure that one out!

  • Musashi5000

    Uhhhh….execute all of them.

    They don’t belong in Australia.

  • adplatt126

    He has “every confidence” in his government. Interesting, because I have “every confidence” the government will fail to keep the people safe. Think of the US government! Our government gave the 9/11 hijackers a travel brochure to the United States along with a free ticket. They won, just like everyone wins in America, if you’re of the right color. Free everything for the oppressed masses.
