The number of spontaneous groups throughout the territory is growing. There are 505 in the whole world. More than 73,000 people. In Italy they are all over, from Ferrara to Siracusa. MeetUp is now in Italian. Even Rutelli would understand it: "Pliis, visit ouur mitap!" The Internet has come into reality with the MeetUps. The citizens who have no representation can now represent themselves. They can do films, make denunciations, make proposals. And make themselves available through the civic lists for managing their own town.

Democracy done by delegating to the secretary of the party, without even the possibility of choosing the candidate is tomfoolery. 7 or 8 people conditioned by the lobbies, the mafias and Masonic groups decide everything. From water, to energy to justice. This period of our history will be remembered as that of the forgetfulness. The Italian is forgetting he is a free man and that he has been at the centre of Civilisation for centuries. They want to transform us into a people of slaves. They have written that I want to go abroad, but it is they who will go abroad. Craxi has prepared the rut even for the others.
Create islands of direct democracy in your towns or sign up to the existing MeetUps.

Propagate and multiply yourselves. The future is you!

Hello bloggers,

Sorry for the OT but this is hot off the press. In Australia they catch terrorists by means of "thousands of hours of phone intercepts", whereas in Italy they decide to ban phone intercepts altogether ... ho hum ... :-/

Guilty verdicts in terror trial

Abdul Nacer Benbrika guilty of leading terror group
Five followers also guilty of belonging to group
Four men walk free; no verdict reached on two others

A MUSLIM cleric has been found guilty of leading and being a member of a terrorist organisation in Australia's biggest terror trial.

Jurors today found Abdul Nacer Benbrika, 48, was a member of a Melbourne terror cell.

Five of his followers were also found guilty.

Benbrika displayed no emotion as the jury delivered a guilty verdict on charges of intentionally directing the activities of a terrorist organisation and of being a member of a terrorist organisation.

Guilty of being a member of a terrorist organisation are Aimen Joud, 23, of Hoppers Crossing, Fadl Sayadi, 28, of Coburg, Abdullah Merhi, 22, of Fawkner, Ezzit Raad, 26, of Preston, and Ahmed Raad, 24, also of Fawkner.

Not guilty are Hany Taha, 33, of Hadfield, Bassam Raad, 26, of Brunswick, Majed Raad, 23, of Coburg, and Shoue Hammoud, 28, of Hadfield.

The jury was unable to reach verdicts on charges against Shane Kent, 31, of Meadow Heights and Amer Haddara, 28, of Yarraville.

After a Supreme Court trial that ran for 115 days, jurors took three weeks and five days to reach a verdict.

Phone intercepts

The 12 men, who were arrested in 2005, were accused of planning terrorist acts in Melbourne, involving the detonation of an explosive or use of weapons.

The trial heard from more than 50 witnesses and was played thousands of hours of listening device material and telephone intercepts.

The jury was told Benbrika, 48, of Dallas in Melbourne, had told his followers it was "permissible to kill women, children and the aged" and that the group needed to kill at least 1000 non-believers to make the Australian Government withdraw soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan.

In April, prosecution witness Izzydeen Atik told the court Benbrika had told him of the targets in 2005.

"He said the AFL grand final was the original target," Atik told the court.


When the plan to target the crowd of close to 100,000 on grand final day had to be shelved, the terrorists allegedly spoke about planning to attack Crown Casino during the 2006 Australian Formula One Grand Prix and a pre-season AFL game.

Earlier this month Justice Bernard Bongiorno warned jurors Atik was a liar and fraudster whose evidence was unsafe.

"If you are considering Atik's evidence you must do so in the light of the cloud hanging over him," Justice Bongiorno said.

In his opening address in February, prosecutor Richard Maidment SC spoke of a group that was exclusively Muslim and male, set up in Melbourne to carry out a violent jihad.

Defence lawyers argued the men were not terrorists but young men learning about Islam from a self-styled sheikh who, "couldn't organise a booze-up in a brewery".

Benbrika's lawyer Remy Van de Wiel said his client was an unworldly man who thought it was possible to drive to Tasmania.

Mixed verdicts

The four men found not guilty made no comment as they walked free from court, flanked by their lawyers.

Altogether, the 12 men had faced a total of 27 counts.

Among a mixed bag of verdicts, the jury found Joud, Sayadi and Ahmed Raad guilty of intentionally providing resources to a terrorist organisation, knowing it was a terrorist organisation.

Ahmed Raad, Ezzit Raad and Joud were also found guilty of intentionally making funds available to a terrorist organisation.

Taha was found not guilty of that charge.

Joud and Benbrika were found guilty of possessing a CD connected with the preparation of terrorist act.

Joud was found guilty on two counts of that charge.

While found guilty of being a member of a terrorist organisation, Merhi was found not guilty of intentionally providing resources to a terrorist organisation.

Bassam Raad and Hammoud were found not guilty of making funds available to a terrorist organisation.
