In Sydney, A Vision Of An Islamic Army.

Well might Bibi Netanyahu tweet: Well did the great communicator make that point in the magnificent speech he made, to rapturous applause, at the Grand Synagogue in Paris. This past weekend, in the Sydney suburb of Lakemba, a speech of a rather different complexion took place at a “public event” …
