澳洲媒體 - 雪梨瑞士蓮巧克力咖啡店劫持事件
2014/12/19 07:13:32瀏覽1525|回應19|推薦124

我抵達墨爾本的那一天(12月15日)是澳洲全國人緊張恐懼的一天(這句話是報紙說的),因為雪梨市中心繁華商業區馬丁廣場樓下的瑞士蓮巧克力咖啡店遭受劫持,犯案者是伊朗裔伊斯蘭教神職人員莫尼斯,攜帶手槍,控制當時咖啡店的顧客及工作員工達十八人。

早上 9:30 莫尼斯走進店裏入座,跟咖啡店長詹森簡單對話瞬間從地上包包中取出手槍,站起來對準店長。在座的顧客們被命令站立高舉雙臂,莫尼斯咆哮,“這是伊斯蘭教為名的恐怖襲擊。” 莫尼斯說,這裡有炸彈。

莫尼斯命令 18 個人質伏地。要求咖啡店的一名華人女員工陳伊利把一面黑色旗幟頂住落地窗,旗幟上的白色阿拉伯文寫著,“除了阿拉之外沒有他神,穆罕默德是神的使者。” 人質中有人哭,有人尖叫,有人嘔吐。

第一個脫逃的人質是 83 歲的前網球冠軍約翰歐泊萊恩,他是看完醫生後進入咖啡店的。他跟另一個叫做史蒂凡的人在咖啡店男員工的協助下去洗手間,經過玻璃門時看到門底下的綠色按鈕。他們問員工那個按鈕是否可以開啟玻璃門,員工說他一個禮拜前才上工所以不清楚。

趁著莫尼斯在店裏的另一邊沒有注意的時候,約翰與史蒂凡往門口試了幾次按鈕後,玻璃門滑動開啟於是逃出。店裏的幹部保羅法薩羅是從防火門逃出的。之後沒多久,另外兩個亞裔員工陈伊利及白怡也伺機逃出。

發現五個人逃走,莫尼斯暴怒,警告若有人嘗試逃走就要流血,走一個人,另一個人就會死。

莫尼斯命令店裏的員工打電話給媒體,包括每日電報、電視臺第七台、電視臺第九台還有 ABC 電視臺,提供他們播放的信息如下:

1. 要求安排跟總理進行錄音對話,這樣會有5個人質得到釋放。

2. 要求總理向大眾宣佈這是伊斯蘭教的行動,這樣會有2個人質得到釋放。

3. 要求送來一面黑色伊斯蘭教的國旗,這樣會有一個人質被釋放。

警方談判小組沒有應允。莫尼斯拍攝人質出現的視頻,強迫人質中的37歲懷孕的女律師泰勒對著鏡頭說“我是律師朱莉泰勒,這是給阿伯特總理的信息,我們的兄弟要求三件簡單的事。第一件是請阿伯特總理打電話給他,直播在媒體出現,這樣我們中有五個人會被釋放。第二件是請政客們公佈這是伊斯蘭教對澳洲襲擊的行動,這樣我們中有兩個人會被釋放。第三件是請送來一面伊斯蘭教的國旗,這樣我們中的一個人會被釋放。”

另一個人質瑪沙被命令在臉書、推特等社交網站留言傳遞信息。還要說大樓裏有炸彈。

最終莫尼斯因為警方沒有妥協配合他的所有要求更加急躁,媒體根本沒有播報他要傳達的信息 - 政府官方嚴禁媒體播報。

人質中有一個曾經是銀行高級經理,五十歲拄著拐杖的骨骼癱瘓患者名叫路易莎霍普,莫尼斯抓住她當成人肉盾牌,一刻也不放鬆。

次日淩晨兩點,警方佈置展開攻堅。在警方開火前,莫尼斯先行開槍射死咖啡店長34歲的詹森。另一個38歲律師卡翠娜,也是朱莉泰勒的同事,中槍後因為心臟病不治死亡。

莫尼斯開槍射殺詹森後也中警方數槍而亡。

------------------------------------------------------------------------

劫持事件發生後,電視媒體有攝影記者藏在咖啡店對面拍攝現場。警方一定會接觸之前逃出的五位人質。但是媒體連續兩天都沒有隨便播報警方調查的內容,因為公開會影響警方的行動計畫。

以上的細節是星期四的報紙揭露的。星期二警方攻堅後,艾伯特總理嘉許澳洲警察的辦事效率,讚揚澳洲的政府強而有力,不跟恐怖行動妥協。

即使莫尼發出對總理的公開要求,澳洲總理當天並沒有從坎培拉前往雪梨,而是留在坎培拉官邸等待雪梨警方的安排。

下面這一段是澳洲有名的安德魯博爾特 Andrew Bolt 寫的社論,因為主題是針對澳洲的伊斯蘭教移民對澳洲國內治安產生的威脅,跟我們的社會不同,所以決定不予翻譯。但是歡迎有興趣的讀者參考閱讀:

MAN Haron Monis couldn’t have done more to make the deaf hear that the terror he unleashed in Sydney was in the name of Islam.

MAN Haron Monis couldn’t have done more to make the deaf hear that the terror he unleashed in Sydney was in the name of Islam.

As he walked into the Lindt coffee shop with his shotgun on Monday he wore a headband bearing the war cry: “We are ready to sacrifice for you, O Muhammad.”

The Iranian-born cleric had already fought for Islam by sending jeering letters to the families of Australian soldiers killed in Afghanistan.

BLOG WITH ANDREW BOLT

On his Facebook page he’d posted jihadist porn and pledged his allegiance to the bloody caliphate of the Islamic State.

And in that coffee shop on Monday he conscripted his terrified hostages at gunpoint into his personal jihad.

He ordered some to hold up against the window a black Shahada flag announcing: “There is no god but Allah; Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”

He made videos of three of them reciting his demands, which included ordering police to fetch him an Islamic State flag and have broadcast this explanation: “This is an attack on Australia by Islamic State.”

And then he killed two captives.

I don’t know how much more explicit Monis could have been.

And I don’t know how more wilfully deaf some people can be.

“Cops still baffled by gunman’s motivations,” reported AAP on Tuesday.

The Age, in one long online news report on the terror attack, avoided any use of the words “Islam” or “Muslim”.

ABC reporters and commentators, especially, on Radio National, babbled how this unfortunate episode had nothing to do with Islam, given Monis was clearly crazy.

Islamic groups claimed nothing in their faith licensed this ghastly attack, and Monis’s former lawyer, Manny Conditsis, summed up this deep evasion in an interview with the ABC: “Yes, he said he was of the Islam faith, but he could have been any other damaged individual that did what he did.”

Except, of course, we rarely get damaged individuals killing people in chocolate shops in the name of Buddha.

We don’t get damaged individuals beheading a British soldier in the name of Christ.

We didn’t get damaged individuals shooting a Canadian soldier guarding Canada’s cenotaph, or plotting bombings of our MCG, or trying to blow up jets with the explosives in their shoes or their underwear in the name of any faith other than Islam.

True, Monis seemed crazy. True, crazy people of all kinds kill, and do not need a faith to make them pull a trigger — as we saw at Port Arthur.

Yet are the apologists really trying to dismiss the faith of Monis as just an astonishing coincidence?

Must we always feign this surprise when a terrorist is found to be — gasp — Muslim? Surely we can finally drop this absurd game given that 21 of the 21 people jailed for terrorism offences here in the past couple of decades were Muslim, as are 19 of the 20 proscribed terrorist groups in Australia.

Surely we’re entitled to conclude that something specific to Islam seems to license violence, given we have just as many Buddhists here as Muslims, yet not one Buddhist has killed here for his faith.

Yes, Monis was not a rational man, which I suspect is true of so many other notorious Islamist killers, including Australian head-hackers Khaled Sharrouf and Mohamed Elomar, now fighting for the Islamic State.

The question is: what would Christianity have inspired a Monis to do? Preach Armageddon at some street corner?

Now ask what Islam, as interpreted by a minority of extremists, whispered in Monis’s ear.

Whisper? It shouted. As Monis’s lawyer conceded on Tuesday: “His ideology is just so strong and so powerful that it clouds his vision for common sense and objectiveness.”

The ideology Monis followed was inspired in large part by Islamic scriptures that urge believers to “kill the polytheists wherever you find them”, and exhorts: “So when you meet those who disbelieve (in battle), strike (their) necks.”

We’re told, as always, that those who take seriously such passages in the Koran and Hadith are a tiny, unrepresentative minority.

But wait. The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Monis had more than 14,000 “likes” on Facebook, and a Muslim community leader asked by counter-terrorism authorities to find the Islamic State flag Monis demanded said: “I found plenty of people who had one, but they didn’t want to give them up.”

So why this denial about Islam — and specifically about its role in this attack?

For the authorities it is about public order. They fear reprisals against Muslims, and also do not wish to alienate the overwhelming majority of peaceful Muslims here whose help they need against the radicals.

For the Left more generally, to admit the latent threat in Islam would be to question disastrous Leftist programs that have left this country more exposed to political violence — particularly our too-lax immigration programs, multiculturalism and the much-rorted “refugee” programs that let in Monis in 1996. It is also to seem unkind.

But the denial, the racism of the anti-racists, it all must end.

The elements are shocking, true. But Islam contains a strong streak of violence and intolerance of other creeds. Mass immigration from the Middle East has left us in greater danger than before. Muslim leaders were recklessly slow to help fight extremism in their doctrine and their followers, including the mad.

And by screaming “racist” rather than allowing debate, our academics, commentators and politicians deafened us to the warnings until it was too late.

真搞不懂  阿拉會要祂的子民  如此殘暴嗎?

謝謝新月的回應。

對於陌生的宗教我覺得比陌生人更需要有所警戒,輕易踏足可能的風險太大。給人殘暴印象的宗教,沒有進入台灣是直到國人慶幸的事實。

我知道這個事件,但是對過程不是很清楚,
珍珠這篇文章等同是現場直播。

謝謝繽紛的回應。

正如樓下詌譙難止所說的,頭兩天報紙是有一句說一句,讀報也讀不清楚怎麼回事,直到三天後才有這個詳細的現場報導。我只算是摘要,但也差不多了。lu

終於了解了
2014/12/21 10:18

我從電視一直看直播﹐ 但直到事件完結都沒什麼得到資訊。反而在網上才知死了人。所以猜是犯人先殺人質﹐ 警才逼著衝進去的。但電視都可看到凶徒開始時在店中走來走去﹐ 為何當時沒有狙擊手做事? 可見澳警還是沒有那麼果斷的。

多謝讓我了解這事件﹐ 可惜差不多時間﹐ 巴基斯坦又有校園槍殺案﹐ 這世界是不會安寧的。

謝謝扞譙難止的回應。(現在用電腦,找不到正確的字輸入)

目前當局也在查第一槍與第二槍之間有九分鐘的空檔是怎麼回事。你觀察澳警不果斷,那麼能夠等到半夜兩點才行動也算是沉得住氣的。

根據世界新聞,目前最亂的地方好像就是中東各地與美國了,比較起來澳洲還算是平靜了。

台灣都是口水戰的胡鬧,這都是一個現象的開始,能不戒慎恐懼嗎?

活在這一世紀

越來越沒安全感

坐捷運會被砍

喝杯咖啡也成惡夢

搖頭啊

謝謝思于的回應。

人間離樂園越來越遠了,人禍顯然比天災還頻繁,而且無法預知。值得每一個人的警惕,更值得媒體的警惕,修正職責使命的方向,我想。

澳洲有惹到回教徒嗎? 怎麼這次會選擇在澳洲下手啊? 還是, 這只是 Mr Monis 自己個人的行動?
pearlz (民進黨抹黑霸凌WHO )(pearlz01) 於 2014-12-21 08:13 回覆:

謝謝老魔王的回應。

你的問話好像很內行,聽說莫尼斯是獨行狼,這一次事件應該是他單獨行動,但是之前他的老婆算是支持者吧?奇怪,再怎麼不正常的人竟然也有女人願意跟隨,他好像結婚兩次,第三個枕邊人殺害了第二個前妻.......

澳洲是世人公認的世外桃源, 澳洲人曾被認為是世界上最快樂的國民, 真沒想到會發生這樣的事。 我有時候想, 那些真主的信徒, 為何要移民到一個 infidel 的國度, 留在真主的國度不是更快樂嗎?

一個聽來的故事: 幾個伊朗的年輕女孩, 大學年齡, 一上了西方國家的客機, 很快的一個個到洗手間, 脫去長袍, 穿著迷你短裙花枝招展的走出來。

這故事說明了甚麼???

謝謝通霄客的回應。

人間太多我們不懂的事情,我很慶幸自己是中國人,不是出生在中東民族人的家中。

但願台灣不要把海峽兩岸搞成中東的局勢,衷心祝願......

美國在2001年經歷恐怖份子以劫持的飛機撞毀紐約世貿大樓。死傷數千人。美國因此進入兩場戰爭。

今年11月去紐約,看剛建好的新的世貿大樓,還有大樓前一個大水池,水池邊緣,密密麻麻,刻的是當年死亡者的名字。觀之,唏噓!

謝謝貞吟的回應。

我去紐約的那一年是 1991 ,對紐約有很好的印象記憶,至今還沒有機會重遊。一瞬間已經兩個十年又三年過去了,第一個十年後竟然遭到 911 那麼可怕的災難,人的災難。

第二個十年後,災難地方重建,今天的滄海桑田不是天時變化,而是人造的災禍。人假借神的名義危害世間,真的讓人唏噓......

以 911 為鑒,澳洲警方的行動就不算小題大做了。

讓人難過的新聞! 願死者安息! 這世界瘋子何其多! 相信阿拉也不願人們扛著他的名濫殺無辜!

珍珠說得對, 如果發生在台灣, 千夫所指就是馬英九的錯! 相較之下, 汗顏啊!

謝謝茉莉的回應。

真的是讓人難過的新聞,想想看市中心的咖啡店,誰想到喝咖啡會遇到災難?

人間有災難人災似乎比天災還可怕,如果有一天我們身邊的人都可能製造災難.....我的天,這種現象是不是正在萌芽?

一連串的錯誤
2014/12/19 20:36
AT least 10 catastrophic failings by federal and state agencies led to the Martin Place atrocity, which Prime Minister Tony Abbott yesterday admitted could have been a “preventable tragedy”.

Had one of the failings been overturned, the attack by gunman Man Haron Monis which rocked a nation to the core might have been prevented.


A furious Mr Abbott yesterday vowed a swift outcome to an urgent review he ordered on Wednesday into every aspect of the siege.

1. FAILED: GRANTED BAIL OVER MURDER(2013年12月莫尼斯被判謀害妻子的共犯罪名竟然被保釋。)

2. FAILED: SAVED FROM EXTRADITION(2000年澳洲拒絕伊朗要求遣返的錯誤。)

3. FAILED: DROPPED OFF WATCH LIST(2010澳洲政府把莫尼斯從恐怖分子名單剔除是錯誤的。)

4. FAILED: GRANTED CITIZENSHIP(2004 年莫尼斯獲得澳洲公民的時候,伊朗已經發出通緝,澳洲政府竟然發給公民身份,)

5. FAILED: ALLOWED INTO THE COUNTRY(1996 年莫尼斯是伊朗當局追捕的要犯,澳洲竟然給予政治難民的簽證。)

6. FAILED: GIVEN LEGAL AID(莫尼斯寫信騷擾澳洲陣亡士兵家屬被告,竟然得到免費的法律協助。)

7. FAILED: GUN LICENCE MIX-UP(跨州槍支執照登記混淆,竟然顯示莫尼斯有執照的錯誤。)

8. FAILED: ALLOWED TO LIVE ON WELFARE(莫尼斯住在澳洲享受政府的福利金。)

9. FAILED: MULTIPLE IDENTITIES(莫尼斯在澳洲18年竟然有不只一個不同的身份與名字)

10. FAILED: INFORMATION NOT SHARED (聯邦與州之間的信息互通不暢)

死了兩人質不算成功!

pearlz (民進黨抹黑霸凌WHO )(pearlz01) 於 2014-12-19 20:01 回覆:

謝謝蕭何的回應。

我瞭解你的意思,但是澳洲不會發佈這種說法。我相信政府對受難者的賠償必須是豐厚的,這些應該也不會見諸新聞。

你有沒有發覺,澳洲社會是比較注重大我的,媒體傳播的就是大我為重的思想。

媒體稱兩個受難人為英雄,而不是當他們為無辜的犧牲。這就是一念之間的不同。
