I’m not a journalist, and the story has been widely covered in the media. So I’m not going to go over the details of the terror attack in Sydney, Australia.
A friend from Sydney sent me some photos which reflect the feeling in Sydney at the moment, I’m posting to share with our readers.
All of us at DonCharisma.org would like to wish our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the victims in Sydney.
I absolutely condemn the murder of unprepared and unarmed men, women and children, there’s not much I find more abhorrent. Only men (or women) who are cowards with extreme pettiness in their hearts would behave like this. Real men fight like men against worthy prepared and armed adversaries.
To call such actions ‘holy war’ is a total violation of anything holy. There’s nothing ‘holy’ about cowards murdering defenceless men, women and children. Never has been never will be.
I was in London when the London bombings happened quite a few years ago now. It was a very frightening time for ordinary people, we just didn’t know what was coming next. In the end the government and police handled it, and new laws and tighter security measures were put in place, which have meant that it hasn’t happened since. So my hope for Australia is that this will be a catalyst in making their country a safer place for ordinary, unarmed men, women and children.
So a little commentary from my perspective. I’ll leave you with the photos from Sydney, a city in mourning after terror attack that has shocked people globally.
