Nick Kaldas, the Arabic-speaking head of the NSW police gangs squad, has been appointed head of the counterterrorism command. He worked in Iraq in 2004 and helped rebuild the Iraqi police force. He clearly did a sterling job.
This Kaldas comment is interesting:
“Australia is very much part of the international community and if something happens in Palestine or Iraq, we have to accept that it has an impact over here.”
Tell that to the Howard government, Islamophobes and war pimps.
