    Pamphlet drop calls for 'holy war'
    August 25, 2006

    A RADICAL group with alleged links to the London bombings is
    reportedly distributing pamphlets through suburban Sydney calling
    for a holy war.

    The leaflets, from the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahir, call for a jihad
    to destroy Israel and use key dates in the Muslim calendar to signal
    the coming destruction of the Jewish state, The Daily Telegraph
    reported today.

    The group is banned in Germany and British Prime Minister Tony Blair
    has called for Hizb ut-Tahir, which has alleged links to last year's
    London terrorist attacks, to be outlawed there.

    It remains legal in Australia despite calls for it to be banned.

    A spokesman for Attorney-General Philip Ruddock's office said security
    agencies were "very aware" of the pamphlets.

    "In order for a group to be proscribed as a terrorist organisation
    it must be directly or indirectly engaged in, preparing, planning,
    assisting in or fostering a terrorist act," he was quoted as saying.

    Hizb ut-Tahir spokesman Mohammed Abdalwahab said the group called
    for the non-violent overthrow of governments and the rise of Islamic governments and Sharia law.
