    STATEMENT ON BONDI JUNCTION ATTACKS



    The past 24 hours have been some of the most difficult our community has ever faced.



    We are all shocked and devastated by the attack at Bondi Junction, where innocent people were killed and injured in a senseless act of violence.



    Our heartfelt condolences go out to the victims, their families, and everyone who has been affected. Our thoughts are with each one of them.



    We thank the NSW Police, Paramedics, and other first responders who heroically put themselves at risk in responding to the attack, and the shopkeepers who provided shelter to those who were at risk.



    We will feel the impact of yesterday’s horrendous attack across our community for some time. But even in our darkest hour, there was light. Victims and members of the public acted heroically, risking their own lives to save others. They supported each other in their most terrifying moments, showing incredible bravery and courage.



    The days and months ahead will be difficult, but we want you to know that our Club is here to support you. If you need professional support, we encourage you to reach out and access these important services and resources:
    • Lifeline – call 13 11 14, text 0477 131 114, or chat online.
    • Kids Helpline – call 1800 551 800, or chat online.
    • Beyond Blue – call 1300 224 636, or chat online.

    You can find further helpful resources on supporting children and teenagers after traumatic events hereand here.

      When you put it like that I think in a thread that asks if everyone is ok after what happened The fact that some decided to come here and not concentrate on that but instead chose to point the finger as to who was responsible is very poor.

      I personally haven’t attacked anyone’s opinion 08 on this But in a time or incident like this. I think it is wise to not to instantly make assumptions or point the finger like some or one has. Then double down when the official version and perpetrator is named and the inferences appear wrong Yeah they are entitled to their opinion but others are entitled to disagree with it

      My only comment was to family upon seeing the picture of the guy which coincides along with the police’s version of events The pile on and finger pointing that occurred last night on Twitter was a disgrace I came on here early this morning thinking that would not be the case here but alas inferences were drawn

      PS Welcome back

          I hope our club can do something to acknowledge this. Perhaps a minute silence before our game on Thursday night.

                I can see where your interests lay.
                What the hell you talking about? My interests?

                No doubt it will be attributed someone with a mental disorder who was also acting as a lone wolf.

                    Very sad though to see his return in such circumstances and under them he chose his return to take a pot shot at other posters He could easily have left that out and returned with dignity

                      The second saddest part about the whole thing will be when the sickeningly woke ABC and SMH and other media try to in some way position the incident as reflective of society as a whole's mistreatment of women, but more specifically men's ingrained mistreatment of women. I'll post the first article that says that here. It won't be long.

                          Can completely understand people thinking it was terror related. All the hallmarks were there...long bladed knife, knew how to use it, the location, soft targets women and children, cowardice when confronted by a man etc.

                          Even if it wasn't wasn't terror related (which seems an incredible coincidence) I am begging our Government to take a zero tolerance approach to all hate inspired behaviours. The Oct 9th riots, the anti-semitism, weekly demonstrations preaching hate, clerics calling for violence etc. etc.By ignoring or helping facilitate this, we are creating an inevitable climate of opportunity for terrorists. Ask ASIO.

                          Please Prime Minister put poltical gain aside and Australia first.
                          Exactly!

                            Indeed...but the first thing many people thought, obviously and understandably, was that it might be a terror attack, same as when people (including two Aussie women)were stabbed to death in London.

                              Sadly you’re right BB in that many people do jump to that conclusion in this day and age. But these sort of attacks are more prevalent in the US and usually involve guns, where a lone individual with a grievance or mental health condition runs rampant killing people and it has nothing to do with terrorism. Thank goodness for our gun laws or it could have been far worse. Let’s not forget Port Arthur, around the same time of year actually if I remember correctly. A terrible experience all round including for the family of the perpetrator.

                                understandably? no doubt 'terrorism' was a possibility but assuming it was terrorism was a long bow. most criminal acts aren't terrorist. most stabbings with 'long bladed knives' aren't terrorist related. and it turns out that it wasn't terrorist related and that islamophobia is a problem in the same way that anti-semitism is a problem
