Large Scale Terrorist Plans Foiled in Australia

Reports today of the arrest of a group in Australia planning large scale terrorist activities should underscore the Australian PM's warning last week. Though ridiculed by all on the left as Deputy Dawg to GWB, John Howard has been as straight as a die on this one.

One of those arrested is a prominent Muslim cleric Abu Bakr, who has publicly supported Osama Bin Laden.

Maybe now the scales can be lifted from the eyes of the Left. Muslim fundamentalism is a clear and present danger.

Australian intelligence officials confirmed Australia has local terrorist cells, many trained offshore.

What confidence have we in New Zealand that we don't have our own mini-version of the pestilence that is muslim fundamentalism. Are we as Helen Clark was wont to say, "living in a benign environment and time"?
