Fakir Fakecleric Man Haron Manis

Even his flag was false.

The man who is holding more than a dozen people hostage and placed Sydney’s CBD into lockdown is no stranger to the NSW police or the judiciary.
Self-described cleric,[Iranian refugee] Man Haron Monis, 50, first came to attention of police when he penned poisonous letters to the family of dead Australian soldiers.

    The sheikh of him.

    Seriously – he sounds like a sinister piece of work. Charged with sexual assault too an an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife. Hopefully this latest stunt will have him locked up for good.

      Technically you cannot be a ‘fake cleric’ in Islam. You can be called out to be lacking in the knowledge of the texts as a spoofer maybe but there is no sacerdotal set up like the hierarchy of priests, bishops and the like in Islam like there is in Christianity.

      You can be really, really, really crap at it but that doesn’t mean you is a fake, to the best of me know how anyways.

      ah now in fairness he probably just flipped out cos he couldn’t get a double decaff moccachino with extra foam. i’ve felt like doing the same myself on occasion..

      Just remembered my Gravatar is a photo taken mid-siege, in a bank. He became a people’s hero though. Doubt it’ll go the same for today’s fella.

    I’ll never understand the mentality of people who flee an oppressive situation, gain asylum in a country and then bitch that their new country isnt oppressive enough

        Indeed. Not promoting the site, was directed there from another place. But the video, and the requests, and even one of them mentioning how they’ve been treated is all bizarre.

        I assume they’re reading from a card, Quite possibly the guy treated them well so they’ll go along with it. Or they’re being threatened at gunpoint. Impossible to know.

        What’s pretty certain is something changed pretty radically to make the police storm the place so suddenly.
