Australian Twitter users have shown their support for Muslim population by offering to ride with them on buses and trains, or giving them a lift to work to ensure their safety.

The campaign was dubbed #illridewithyou.

“…and the (presumably) Muslim woman sitting next to me on the train silently removes her hijab,”wrote one Twitter user, “I ran after her at the train station. I said ‘put it back on. I’ll walk with you.”

The Australian Muslim Community has issued a statement, saying that it “shares with fellow Sydneysiders their utter shock and horror at the unprecedented scenes emerging from the Lindt Cafe in Martin Place this morning.”

“We reject any attempt to take the innocent life of any human being, or to instill fear and terror into their hearts,” the statement adds.

“Any such despicable act only serves to play into the agendas of those who seek to destroy the goodwill of the people of Australia and to further damage, and ridicule the religion of Islam.”

NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione delivered a message to all the hostages kept at the café: “We are doing all we can to set you free.” He added that he doesn’t think there are other locations involved at the moment.

“We have the very best negotiators in the world working on this right now,” NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione told journalists. However, he couldn’t confirm whether the five hostages escaped or were released by the gunman.

“I want to praise Sydneysiders for what they’ve done today,” he added, “There’s no need for people to be in and around that area.”

“Our plan and only goal is to get those people out of that building. We have got contact with him [the gunman].”

‘ GILL ROSENBERG’S FATE IN HANDS OF ISIS INTERNET FORUM ‘

#AceNewsServices – Dec.01 – The status of Gill Rosenberg, a dual Canadian-Israeli citizen who volunteered to join the Kurdish militia, and was reportedly stationed in Kobani, Syria, remains unknown.

‘ Gill Rosenberg ‘

Reports surfaced on jihadist websites Sunday, that ISIS had captured Rosenberg, 31, a former IDF soldier who immigrated to Israel in 2006. She had traveled to Iraq to fight with the Kurds in early November. 

But sources in the Kurdish underground in Syria denied Sunday night that Rosenberg had been in the Kobani region, as claimed by the websites. 

An American who is fighting in the ranks of the Kurds also told Voice of Israel that Rosenberg was not in the Kobani region. “She was never in Kobani, that’s not reasonable that she was captured,” he said.

And no official confirmation from either Israel or Canada has been issued to verify reports that Rosenberg was captured by Islamic State terrorists. 

Yet speculation continues about the whereabouts of Rosenberg, and in an internet forum affiliated with Islamic State, many commenters are already gruesomely debating what ISIS should do with its Israeli prisoner. 

The first report – written by well-known forum member, who styles himself as an ISIS reporter and has previously posted many battlefield updates – stated that ISIS abducted Rosenberg, a “female Zionist soldier”, after carrying out three suicide attacks on rebel-held positions. 

Forum opinions are now divided as to what Islamic State’s next step should be.

Some call for the terrorist organization to execute Rosenberg, in their traditional beheading manner, because she is both a female fighter and Jewish.

Moreover, they accuse her of degrading Islam by stamping her feet on an Islamic State banner.  

Others call for ISIS to consider a prisoner exchange with Israel.

In exchange for the return of Rosenberg, the Israelis will be expected to release Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails. 

One forum participant argued back that an exchange deal with Israel would be problematic for ISIS’s image, and therefore it would be better for ISIS to just kill her.

Tensions have soared in Lebanon since August when the army fought deadly clashes with jihadists of the IS and Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front in Arsal.

The jihadists are demanding that Lebanon free Islamist prisoners.
