Sydney Siege: ISIS Terror Strikes Australia , What is a false flag event?

© Brendan D. Murphy and Aimee Devlin

News alert: there is currently what is most likely a state-sponsored false flag terrorist event occurring in the Sydney CBD. The media is claiming “ISIS” is holding thirteen (there’s that number again), or as many as twenty, people hostage in a cafe in Martin Place, dubbing the event the “Sydney Siege.”


What is a false flag event?

False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities, groups or nations than those who actually planned and executed them. Operations carried during peace-time by civilian organisations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organisation behind an operation.1

False flag events such as these, are staged heavily, more and more frequently, as the years pass. False flag operations and assassinations are a central component of the elaborate psychological warfare campaign waged on the public to justify the so-called “global war on terrorism,” and the events of September 11, 2001 are this project’s cornerstone.2

sydney siege terrorism australia MYEFO joe hockey isis martin place sydney global freedom movement Though you won’t see it reported on mainstream TV outlets (due to their state sponsorship and global scripts they abide by when reporting news), Western covert operators were behind events such as “Bali, Madrid, London 7/7, 9/11. Because the mainstream media are integral to the Industrial Military Academic Intelligence Media complex,” journalist Barrie Zwicker observes, “the cold-blooded technicians of death face no journalistic scrutiny. Without moral, legal, technical or financial constraints, the black operators range freely, executing the orders of the global oligarchies.”3

Well, we predicted this. When the ridiculous media stir over the “Sword of Terror” didn’t strike quite enough fear into the hearts of Sydney siders and Australia in general, we figured it was just the beginning; more drastic measures would need to be taken by the State in a more daring and extreme PSYOP to subdue the people, destroy all last traces of freedom, and distract us completely from major (and abhorrent) legislation being passed right under our noses.

Personally I have never been so gutted for getting it right—and I pray that the State doesn’t sacrifice any more innocent bystanders in its endless efforts to garner more funding for the war in (read: on) the Middle East, and the Elite’s grab for total global domination.


A man armed with a shotgun is holding hostages at a cafe in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.

A flag in the window of the Lindt cafe, earlier reported to be the militant Islamist ISIS banner, is now thought to be a shahada flag, or the black flag of Islam, which is a general expression of faith in Islam. [More state/media sponsored divide and conquer strategy]

The faces of at least three customers and workers could be seen pressed against the cafe window with their eyes closed, holding up the flag.

The ABC reported:

“Witnesses have reported hearing loud bangs that sounded like gun shots.” The area has been shut down, the nearby Westpac Bank and a Channel Seven office evacuated.

There are unconfirmed reports that the hostage takers, in a call to Sydney radio station 2GB, claimed there were devices placed around the city and that they had demanded to speak a senior Australian public figure. [That ought to make everyone nice and paranoid! I guess the “sword of terror” debacle didn’t quite have everyone convinced! In fact, even mainstream journalists “took a sword” to that narrative, if you’ll forgive the pun.]

Some reports said there were up to 20 people inside the cafe. Seven [STATE] News said: “It’s believed at least 13 hostages are being held in the cafe.”4

It’s virtually 9/11 or 7/7 (or Boston) all over again. The uncanny appearance of an improbable coincidence in a string of improbable coincidences in yet another “terror” (PSYOP) event stretches the credulity of even the most naïve observer (one hopes). Let’s get this straight: the AFP were scheduled to hold a conference today to discuss the disruption of terrorism operations when—wouldn’t you know it?—a terror event takes place and disrupts the conference?!

Remember the terror drills being run on 7/7 and 9/11 when—hey presto—”actual” (staged) terror events occurred? (And who can forget Operation Northwoods which, thankfully, never got off the ground?) More recently, this same thing happened with the (staged) Boston bombings event. The DHS admitted it had planned terror drills of the EXACT nature as the ones that unfolded on the very SAME day—BEFORE they “had a chance” to execute their own “drills.”6

Give me a break. (Research “crisis actors” if you haven’t already.)

Sydney Siege PSYOP

In what is obviously a calculated form of predictive programming, the police (via the news media) reported on “terror raids” in Sydney in September of this year, and—wouldn’t you know it?—they foiled a “horrifying plot to behead a random member of the Australian public in Sydney’s Martin Place, drape them in an Islamic State flag and behead them on camera.”7 (emphasis added)

We pray no one at the “Sydney Siege” is hurt today, and one shudders at the prospect of an ACTUAL beheading having to be carried out due to the lack of a green screen and studio with which to fake such an event (as we saw recently in the international news media with the bogus green screen “beheadings” during which the “beheadees” didn’t even flinch as the knife began its work).

More to the point, we are obviously seeing the playing out of a carefully planned narrative conjured by the State (read: Shadow Government), designed to induce the public into an acceptance of

  1. Increased military funding for the war on and (Rothschild) takeover of the Middle East,
  2. The sense of an ever-present (but illusory) threat that could strike at any minute, thus justifying increased “security” measures in the city (read: restrictions and curtailments on remaining basic freedoms), and
  3. Increased militarization of the police force, and heightened military presence.

The latter two points fall under the banner of “Problem, Reaction, Solution”, and are staples of the State Terrorist Entity under which our conditioned “civilized” society lives: Scare the people witless; wait for them to demand government protection; enact the draconian measures you had planned all along.

“This is obviously a deeply concerning incident but all Australians should be reassured that our law enforcement and security agencies are well trained and equipped and are responding in a thorough and professional manner,” Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott says.

Well of course they are well trained! Who do we think orchestrates these bogus drills and staged terror events? The State does–time and time again. This is very well established in the historical literature and government documentation, andall independent (not state-sponsored) journalists are familiar with this fact. 9-11 is arguably the most obvious and classic example

goering quote

What is a PSYOP?

Major Ed Rouse (Ret.) explains the concept quite well:

…planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of organizations, groups, and individuals. Used in all aspects of war, it is a weapon whose effectiveness is limited only by the ingenuity of the commander using it.

A proven winner in combat and peacetime, PSYOP is one of the oldest weapons in the arsenal of man. It is an important force protector/combat multiplier and a non-lethal weapons system.

[a PSYOP is] the planned use of communications to influence human attitudes and behavior … to create in target groups behavior, emotions, and attitudes that support the attainment of national objectives. The form of communication can be as simple as spreading information covertly by word of mouth or through any means of multimedia.

A psychological warfare campaign is a war of the mind.8

As the Christmas lights are hung, and the carols are being sung, let us return to the Terrorfying Sword of Destiny. Who can forget the horrific, frightening, and powerful images broadcast nationally during “counter-terrorism raids” to instil fear into the population with the news that one man was charged with conspiring to behead a random person in Sydney’s CBD?

The damning evidence? A sword, later revealed to be a plastic decoration common in almost every Shiite Muslim household. A sword that wouldn’t be able to cut a cucumber.

The man detained in relation to the sword, Mustafa Dirani, a 21-year-old part-time painter said his parents bought the plastic sword at a night market in Sydney. It has been on display in the family home for years. In the media storm that followed the events of the 18th September, the date which Australian police launched the largest anti-terror raids in Australian history, it was widely reported that “AFP officers had confiscated a sword for forensic testing, with some stories picturing the ceremonial sword sealed inside a federal police evidence bag.”

Headlines read:

Daily Mail: Was this the lethal sword terror cell planned to use to behead an innocent victim on a Sydney street?9

Daily Telegraph: Claims of a plan to behead as Prime Minister reveals terrorism plot came from Islamic State10

Many articles by Fairfax Media described the sword as large and curved with a gold handle and engraved with Arabic writing. In the article “Sword taken from duplex”, News Corp’s Courier-Mail directly linked the object with the threat of beheadings: “More than 1m long, the sword was carried from the home in a federal police evidence bag (right). Police believe its owner was one of at least 15 men plotting to kidnap an Australian from the streets and decapitate them.”11

The Australian Federal Police refused to explain why the sword was seized or to confirm that it was plastic. “The AFP does not comment on ongoing investigations,” a spokeswoman said. Why would we expect any accountability or transparency at this point, after all?

The warrant from the Australian Federal Police still sits on a bookshelf in the family’s duplex home. It says: ‘Between 8 May 2014 and 17 September 2014 in the state of NSW and elsewhere, Mustafa Dirani did engage in other acts in preparation for or planning terrorist acts contrary to Section 101.6 of the Criminal Code’.12

sydney siege terrorism australia MYEFO joe hockey isis martin place sydney global freedom movement One might be forgiven for asking the obvious: where is the evidence to substantiate these claims and this poorly-cobbled-together narrative? As usual, there is little to none. The sword incident amounted to nothing but an attempt to prosecute an innocent man as part of the Shadow Government’s agenda for totalitarian control.

Let’s take a look at a larger “Terrorfying” narrative and see where it’s leading. Reporter Eryk Bagshaw has summarised some key developments since the “Islamic State” released footage of US journalist James Foley being “beheaded” in August.

  • 1 September 2014 – Foreign minister Julie Bishop says “ISIS is Australia’s responsibility” following intelligence that up to 60 Australians could be fighting for the group in Iraq and Syria.
  • 3 September 2014 – ISIS releases footage of US journalist Steven Sotloff being “beheaded”
  • 10 September 2014 – President Obama launches an open ended bombing campaign on Islamic State “strongholds” in Iraq
  • 10 September 2014 – A Brisbane book store owner, Omar Succarieh, is arrested in Brisbane on charges of supporting terrorism. He is also the brother of Australia’s first [alleged] suicide bomber, Ahmad Succarieh, who is suspected of detonating himself and a truck load of explosives in north-eastern Syria.
  • 11 September 2014 – The CIA estimates that there are up to thee times the number of people for Islamic State as previously thought. “They can muster between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria,” a CIA spokesman said. [It helps when the Western powers and Israel covertly fund you.]
  • 12 September 2014 – ASIO director David Irvine raises the Australian terror alert to high.
  • 14 September 2014 -Islamic State releases footage of British aid worker David Haines being “beheaded” [all inverted commas around “beheaded” added by GFM]
  • 15 September 2014 – Prime Minister Tony Abbott declares war on the “Islamic Death Cult” and announces that 200 special forces troops will be on the ground in Iraq within days, along with 400 air personnel, up to eight FA-18 Super Hornets, and two other aircraft.
  • 18 September 2014 – Australian police launch the largest anti-terror raids in Australian history.13
  • 19 September 2014 [this and following points added by GFM] – police claim the raids foiled a “horrifying plot to behead a random member of the Australian public inSydney’s Martin Place.”
  • 24 September 2014 – Counter-Terrorism Legislation Amendment (Foreign Fighters) Bill 2014 is introduced and read for the first time
  • 30 October 2014 – Above Bill is passed into legislation by both Houses
  • 15 December 2014 – Australian Federal Police conference on disruptive terror events is—surprise, surprise—disrupted by a terror event in Martin Place, allegedly orchestrated by Islamic extremists in ISIS. Conveniently the MYEFO (Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook) announcement scheduled to be made by Treasurer Joe Hockey is delivered as the mass-distraction unfolds, as we have seen many times before.

Hockey describes the MYEFO report as a “Shock Absorber”, in which he’ll “slash foreign aid and reveal a massive blowout in this year’s deficit.” Over the next four years, deficits will almost double to $100 billion, proving to Australians that the nation’s finances cannot improve without reforms to taxes and spending.

A double-edged sword, the MYEFO’s clash with the “Sydney Siege” could serve many purposes…

  1. To disguise the budget blow out, and justify the alterations made within its pages
  2. To use the opportunity to funnel more funds into counter-terrorism practices, national security and defence
  3. To bring in tighter, more covert, hastily introduced “Terrorism Laws” which invade your privacy and erode your freedoms more than ever before
  4. To instill more fear, separation, and hatred into the public, uniting them against a common [manufactured] enemy.

In point of fact, the Prime Minister of the corporation known as Australia, had already preempted and confirmed points 2 and 3 above in a speech to Parliament on the 22nd ofSeptember, as we discovered while researching this article:

Regrettably, for some time to come, Australians will have to endure more security than we are used to and more inconvenience than we would like. Regrettably, for some time to come, the delicate balance between freedom and security may have to shift. There may be more restrictions on some so that there can be more protection for others. After all, the most basic freedom of all is the freedom to walk the streets unharmed and to sleep safe in our beds at night.

With the events today in Martin Place, we have, as scripted, the perfect justification for the increased curtailment of freedom and heightened imposition of “security measures” that Abbott spoke of so “presciently” in September. The agenda is clear and couldn’t be easier to follow. If you aren’t convinced yet, Abbott wasn’t done. In the same speech, he added:

Today, I pledge that our security agencies will have all the resources and authority that they reasonably need. In August, the government committed an additional $630 million to the Australian Federal Police, Customs and Border Protection, the Australian Security and Intelligence Organisation, the Australian Secret Intelligence Service and the Office of National Assessments.

Additional ASIO and ASIS officers are being recruited and deployed; biometric screening will start to be introduced at international airports within 12 months; and more Border Force personnel are now being deployed to international airports. Before Christmas, the government will respond to the review of the national security apparatus that is now underway.14

What ELSE has the government has been getting up to before Christmas, we ask?

This year’s budget deficit is now set to exceed $40 billion, more than $10 billion above it’s initial forecast. Some of the money will be redirected to fund new spending decisions, boosting national security and the deployment of troops to the Middle East. Interesting. ABC news reported in October, Finance Minister Mathias Cormann “will not rule out raising taxes to help pay for Australia’s mission in Iraq and a recent funding boost to national security agencies.”15

sydney siege terrorism australia MYEFO joe hockey isis martin place sydney global freedom movement As always, it’s sickening to watch public tax dollars go to displacing, killing, and maiming defenceless civilian populations in faraway lands, on the basis of staged terror events. Hockey seems approving, however: Since revealing its awfully-received budget in May, the Government has given national security agencies an extra $630 million over four years, and estimated that the military deployment to the Middle East will cost about $500 million per year. Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey said investment in the Middle East military campaign was “money well spent” but meant finding new sources of funding. Where has this funding come from? You and I. It’s our dollars that are being spent during the ongoing support of massive corporations, and the direct funding of war.

Will the “Sydney Siege” ensure the allocation of even more funding for “counter-terrorism” purposes? Only time will tell.

In October, following Australia’s largest counter terrorism raids, and after Australian jets begin Iraq airstrikes against “Islamic State targets”, Prime Minister Tony Abbott praised the RAAF’s involvement against the IS “death cult”. “We sent our Super Hornets to the Middle East to do a job to protect Australia’s national interest,” Mr Abbott told reporters Sydney. At the time, Joe Hockey said the government would spend whatever it needed to defend Australia, despite the deteriorating federal budget. Much to our surprise, Hockey, as a politician, has kept to his word.16

When will we take a step back, turn off the TV, do our homework, and realise how we are being played here? The last place we’ll garner the truth from is the state-sponsored corporate media outlets, or the puppet masters of the Government, so it is incumbent upon us to use our sovereign will to get at the truth using our own nous and intelligence. Generally speaking, that would be the government’s worst nightmare.
