Farewell Faheem:

A jury has today found Sydney architect Faheem Khalid Lodhi guilty of three terrorism-related charges.

A seven-week trial in the New South Wales Supreme Court was told that in October 2003 the 36-year-old was planning a bombing attack, motivated by violent jihad.

He’ll be sentenced on June 29.

    1. Yes but the question is why?

    1. Sorry couldn’t resist

    1. Don’t celebrate too quickly . . . .just because a jury of common people found this prick guilt, it doesn’t mean that some judge who knows better than everyone else might let him off with a relatively light sentence.

    1. Forgive my typing and sentence construction above . . . . you know what I mean. Let’s wait to see what sentence this prick gets.

    1. A light sentence might be good.  A slap in the face with a bit of wet ham would disrespect him and the other loser middle-class onanists who fancy themselves as terrorists…

    1. Im thinking 2 – 4 years.

    1. I wouldn’t be expecting much, but at least he was found guilty.

      A self-esteem workshop is more likely.

    1. Self-esteem workshop for him; tolerance camp for the jurors?

      And then a big group hug!.

    1. He will not get a small sentence: he lied to the authorities (for which he will face a separate trial) and has shown no guilt or remorse.

      Lets run a pool. I am guessing 10yrs on each served concurrently.

    1. #1 Yes, it’s funny that.  Neither the ABC nor Fairfax explain why he was going to blow up bits of Sydney, though Fairfax does allude to the M word.

      It’s even funnier that the people who get their information from those media organisations pride themselves on having superior insight than hoi polloi.  Funny how you can be more well-informed with only part of the story?

    1. They can’t sentence him to serve time in prison, because there is only tinned Halal Chum available. SO CHUNKY YOU COULD CARVE IT.

    1. But seriously Lodhi should go the way of this guy. http://partisantimes.typepad.com/partisan_times/2006/06/its_a_good_day_.html

    1. Oafish, they have Justice Anthony Whealey in charge.

      He used to adjudicate GPS schools debating in Sydney about 25 years ago when he was a humble barrister and liked to spend wintry Friday nights reminding 17 year old schoolboys and their parents how much smarter he was than them. He was a runt with a capital c in those days, and I can’t imagine much as changed.

      Only way this architect could get a light sentence would be if he went to Riverview. If he went to Joeys, expect life. Sydney High, he’ll get the chair.

    1. Let’s try and understand where this man was coming from. He was young and middle class, he had a good job, and he lived in a land millions of people would give their right arm to emigrate to. Can we blame him for feeling that only huge explosions would bring him peace?

    1. “The killing of innocent people is not part of Islam.”

      Hmmmmm, let’s see, where have I heard that before?

      Guess I could draw a list, but I think Mr. Blair and Andrea, have a word or character limit….:).

      Posted by El Cid on 2006 06 19 at 06:35 AM • permalink


    1. I am delighted that a jury found him guilty.

      What’s happening with the 20 or so arrested in Melbourne and Sydney this year?

    1. Faheem from me too.

      Yeah.  Except that you and I aren’t innocent.

    1. Now if only they could try and sentence Mohammed Dawood David Hicks to life, we could all finally get on with ours…

    1. Surely his lawyer will be looking for a retrial in front of the moonbats’ friend, Pat O’Shane (yeah, I know, she’s only a magistrate).  That’s if Pat herself can keep clear of those apprehended violence orders…

    1. Unlike other newses,ABC forgot to mention that he is an architect,a member of a well paid and respected profession-Tonight Nanny Monica is waxing eloquent about Brangelina and Kylie Minogue and their various exloits as documented by No Idea and co.As if anyone cares. Scowling and squinting
      over her bi focals,she ventured to suggest that Keith Windschuttle,ABC board member-was a very naughty academic,deserving of a jolly good spanking and going to bed without his supper.
      Nanny was cross and out of sorts.
      There was an old woman who lived at Mediawatch…
      O and wasn’t it coincidental that the Catalyst snippet about heart attack victims featured the patient standing “dead” in line with an enormous KFC bucket sign looming ominously over his right shoulder..

      Posted by crash on 2006 06 19 at 09:45 AM • permalink


    1. Agh, so Brangelina have finally polluted even this board… can someone explain to me why everyone is fawning over a rich white couple who went to a country chronically short of decent medical treatment for its own people to monopolize those limited resources for their own self-indulgent spawning?

      As for Abdul the bomber, well thank god the public will be safe from him for the next six months…

    1. Perhaps some cultural sensitivity and diversity training is in order. I think he’ll be alright once he understands that Islamofascism isn’t the only doctrine out there worthy of respect and learns to accept that others have the right to their beliefs even when you personally reject the beliefs themselves. No reason to send the poor fellow to prison. Condemn the sin, not the sinner and help him to sin no more.

    1. #25 Presumably they paid for it.  I’m not sure how this equates to taking care away from someone else.

      Yes. Off topic.

    1. Porr old Faheem won’t be getting his 72 virgins, but at least he’ll be treated like 72 virgins when he’s inside.

    1. Cue scene in trendy architectural board-room:

      Boss: Faheem, look, don’t take this personally, but we really have to discuss your artistic perspective here.
      Faheem: Is this about my work attire?
      Boss: Oh, no! No, Faheem, your cultural workwear offends no-one at all!  It’s more the.. the um.. creativity you have recently shown in your design work.
      Faheem: You find offence in my designs?
      Boss: Oh, no, Faheem, no offence, none whatsoever, it’s just that, well, you know, our client is the Department of Defence, and we are commissioned to design the new army barracks at {confdential – striken from record}, and it’s worth quite a deal of money to this firm.
      Faheem: Yes, and you find offence with?
      Boss: Oh, No, Faheem, no offence at all, it’s just that maybe our client will find all those, um… minarets, a bit…, a bit…
      Faheem: A bit what? A bit what?
      Boss: Um… a bit outside their um.. design parameters they briefed us with…
      Boss: Um… Faheem, I personally, and nor does anyone on staff find anything at all offensive about minarets, and I’m sure the Defence Department likewise.  It’s just that Defence wanted a sort of um… modernist, cubist design paradigm, and umm… artistically, ten minarets don’t really umm… conform with cubist design thought.
      Faheem: So, my design which is pleasing to Allah is not pleasing to you?

    1. Justice Whealy was the gent who awarded Rene Rivkin 9 months weekend detention plus a fine of $30000 for having indulged in a bit of insider trading that netted Rene the princely sum of $2664.On that basis our terrorist friend could look forward to enjoying the hospitality of the State for an extended period.

      Bad luck we don’t have ‘hard labour’ any more.

      I see that two of the 20 or so are to stand trial soon. Should be interesting.
