The Australian government has listed Jemaah Islamiyah under its counter-terrorism legislation. But the pieces of the JI puzzle are still being put together. The ABC's Four Corners program has obtained a secret intellegence report which claims that in Jemaah Islamiyah's vision of an Asian Islamic superstate, northern Australia is included.

AUSTRALIA: Jemaah Islamiyah outlawed
When Australia's Federal Attorney General Daryl Williams outlawed Jemaah Islamiyah yesterday, he cleared the way for the arrest of any Australian supporters of the group. The spiritual leader of the group, Abu Bakar Ba'asyir is in custody in Indonesia over a series of church bombings. And Australia's domestic spy agency, ASIO, says key leaders of Jemaah Islamiyah have visited this country and that individuals trained by al Qaeda or its affiliates are in Australia.

I think he made up the Northern Australia bit though, a few of his colleagues and other terrorism experts familiar with the idea of an Islamic superstate came out after he mentioned northern australia was included and said they've never heard of north aus included in any of the plans.

Kinda makes sense, theres bugger all Muslims over here already, and invading would be somewhat of a pain in the ass for them, if not impossible.

I don't know Kano, I'm not living in Australia. BTW, I hope you right.

I've read that some Aussies, since the bali incident, have commited some attacks against muslims in aultralia ( Musquee, beating men, removing tchador from muslim womens.... ).

Is it true ?

I know you don't live in aus

Um, there was one or two reports of damage to mosques over east in the days immediately after the incident, but nothing of note.

There isn't much of an anti-muslim vibe down here to speak of.
