“Harun Mehicevic, also known as Abu Talha, returned from Bosnia late last month and is again extolling the virtues of jihad at the Al-Furqan Islamic Information Centre in Springvale South.” The results could be explosive.

“Radical Springvale imam returns to preach jihad,” by Nino Bucci in The Age, November 4 (thanks to Lachlan):

THE leader of an Islamic group at the centre of anti-terror raids has returned from overseas to resume his hardline preaching in Melbourne.

Harun Mehicevic, also known as Abu Talha, returned from Bosnia late last month and is again extolling the virtues of jihad at the Al-Furqan Islamic Information Centre in Springvale South.

The Australian Federal Police raided the centre and Mr Mehicevic’s home in September during an operation that focused on 12 properties, most of them in Melbourne’s south-east. Mr Mehicevic was in Bosnia at the time.

As a result of the raids, Adnan Karabegovic, 23, was charged with four counts of collecting documents in connection with the preparation of a terrorist act. The maximum penalty for the offence is 15 years’ jail.

The raids led to the seizure of items including a computer memory stick containing ”violent extremist materials”, as well as imitation firearms and registered guns.

Speaking from the driveway of a flat in Springvale South, Mr Mehicevic said he had been silent since the raids because he felt nothing could be gained from speaking while the Al-Furqan centre was being criticised.

”With all the hype of raids and everything, you get no benefit of talking,” he said. ”You wait for everything to settle down.”

Mr Mehicevic said he was angry that he had been described as the leader of a religious cult, but would wait until after the Islamic festival of Eid al-Adha, which was held on the last weekend in October, before deciding whether to discuss the raids in detail. He wrote in an email that the centre had ”decided to keep identical line related to media. Without engagement at all.”

Mr Mehicevic is a controversial figure within the Muslim community. The imam of the nearby Bosnian mosque in Noble Park, Ibrahim Omerdic, said Mehicevic had led a group of ”radical followers” away from the Noble Park mosque about 10 years ago.

Another community source who also spoke of Mr Mehicevic soon after the raids said he was not well respected in Melbourne’s Islamic community.

Mr Mehicevic said reports about his past and a protest outside the Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne had made him wary of the media….

Poor lamb. He should contact Christiane Amanpour, Niraj Warikoo, Bob Smietana, Kari Huus or one of their pro-jihad colleagues. They would set him up with a glowing puff piece in a heartbeat.

    To Abdul Rahman: if you believe in Christ you cannot believe in Islam, that is an oxymoron. I believe that Daniel Nalliah has read the koran from the beginning to the end and can quote chapter and verse and having lived in countries where the Islamic faith is practiced on a daily basis, he knows what he is talking about. As a blue-eyed Australian, have you lived in any Muslim country? Has your wife? To Al Wadia: can you please tell me of any country in the world where Islam is the ruling faith and where there is freedom of choice, speech, dress? Where there is equality between men and women? Where there is freedom of religion? How many churches are there in countries with Islamic shariah law? There are plenty here. When Christians are allowed to build churches in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and most of all Afghanistan, India, Pakistan and little girls who want to study don’t get shot, and practice their freedom of religion free of fear then please come back and apply again.
