Sydney Now has No Go Zones
Syrian Sydney Morning Herald reports:
Parts of Sydney's Muslim community have been accused of carrying out terrifying campaigns of boycotts, violence and unofficial policing of members of rival religious sects.
Community leaders fear an all-out sectarian war reminiscent of the Balkan proxy war of the 1990s as the conflict in Syria ignites tensions between Sunni and Shiite Muslims in Sydney. Some suburbs have ''no-go zones'' as death threats and verbal stoushes escalate into firebombings, bashings and shootings.It's not just the Syrians.
Australian Syrian Association spokesman Mohamed al-Hamwi admitted anti-Assad groups were taking matters to extremes but said they were Lebanese Australians, not Syrians, who had been provoked by Shiites.Same Shiite, different day. And I'm guessing they weren't Christian Lebanese...
He said he had instructed Sunnis not to travel to areas such as Arncliffe, Rockdale and Belfield.
