FBI and Australian police cooperate in raid on jihad funding house

A joint operation between the FBI and Australian authorities has led to arrests at some jihad headquarters in Melbourne:
THE counter-terrorism police units working with the FBI have ­dramatically expanded the war against home-grown Islamic ­extremism, arresting one man ­accused of bankrolling terror groups operating in Syria and Iraq and signalling that more arrests were on the way.

The FBI helped Australian police track down Melbourne man Hassan El Sabsabi, 23, who was charged yesterday with six counts of intentionally making funds available to a terrorist organisation, including Islamic State, which is also known as ISIS and ISIL.

Mr El Sabsabi is accused of sending $12,000 to an American citizen now fighting in Syria and of being part of a sophisticated network to funnel money to Islamic State and another notorious terrorist group, the al-Qa’ida-aligned Jabhat al-Nusra.

Police raided seven properties across Melbourne’s west and north amid fears of a broad campaign of fundraising.

The early-morning raids and­ ­arrest is the first known counter- terrorism strike of its kind with FBI co-operation and is the result of an eight-month investigation.
Good to see there's teamwork here, and it's yielded results. But there's still much more that needs to be done in order to stop these monsters.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
