[ by Charles Cameron — wherein black flag patches run riot ]
Just a quick something I gleaned via Leah Farrall‘s recent blog post:
That’s the ist of an excerpt I transcribed from an Aussie Insight video last year, which featured host Jenny Brockie and the gentleman depicted, one Abu Bakr. Bakr was arrested just before Christmas and charged with “possession of documents designed to facilitate a terrorist attack”. The exchange went like this:
Jenny Brockie: I see you’re wearing the ISIS flag on your shirt
Abu Bakr: It doesn’t really come down to what sort of flag because this flag, here, people might say you’re a supporter of Jabhat al-Nusra, and this flag here, people might say you’re a supporter of ISIS, but these flags are all one, they’re all the same flag, one Muslim nation and that’s it.
It’s great to see you back and blogging, Leah —
— and we’re keenly awaiting the arrival of your book!
