|Sydney Siege hostage crisis|
|Type 1||hostage crisis|
|Date||12/14 - 12/15|
(italic is official story)
|Man Haron Monis|
The Sydney hostage crisis was a NDNGH psyop that was conducted in Sydney, Australia on December 14-15, 2014.
The 2014 Sydney hostage crisis, also known as the Sydney siege and Lindt Cafe siege, occurred on 15–16 December 2014 when a lone gunman, Man Haron Monis, held hostage ten customers and eight employees of a Lindt chocolate café located at Martin Place in Sydney, Australia. Police treated the event as a terrorist attack at the time, but Monis' motives have subsequently been debated.
The Sydney siege led to a 16-hour standoff, after which a gunshot was heard from inside and police officers from the Tactical Operations Unit stormed the café. Hostage Tori Johnson was killed by Monis and hostage Katrina Dawson was killed by a police bullet ricochet in the subsequent raid. Monis was also killed. Three other hostages and a police officer were injured by police gunfire during the raid.
Police have been criticised over their handling of the siege for not taking proactive action earlier, for the deaths of hostages at the end of the siege, and for the lack of negotiation during the siege. Hostage Marcia Mikhael called radio station 2GB during the siege and said "They have not negotiated, they've done nothing. They have left us here to die."
Early on, hostages were seen holding an Islamic black flag up against the window of the café, featuring the shahādah creed. Initially, some media organisations mistook it for the flag used by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL); Monis later demanded that an ISIL flag be brought to him. Monis also unsuccessfully demanded to speak to the Prime Minister of Australia, Tony Abbott, live on radio. Monis was described by Abbott as having indicated a "political motivation" but the eventual assessment was that the gunman was "a very unusual case—a rare mix of extremism, mental health problems and plain criminality".

exoteric64 – Yesterday at 14:18 The sydney ” hoax “ lindt chocolate was a bit real as i know the friends of the family that lost their only child and i m going to say it happened and it was a police bullet that killed them As the autopsy said It was a psy op but with casualties
exoteric64 – Yesterday at 23:51 Katrina dawson @fakeologist The whole operation was farcical – i ve been on about this alot online and was proved correct when they virtually admitted that both tori and katrina were killed by friendly fire- i know a cop involved too he is defensive of the tactics – they had a rediculous amount of cops for one psychotic lunatic that had hundreds of convictions of the highest order – no doubt driven in there and encouraged so this terror op could take place – one cop could have gone in and neutralised him Even his name was a psy op the evil “ man” monis “ two words that mean the same man and mon and the fav “ I s “ The people i know dine with the parents alot – they are badly affected by this
Hmmmm too much friend-of-a-friending for my liking.
Let’s get stuck into the hoax management
The official BS story for reference https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Sydney_hostage_crisis
Tactical Operations Unit stormed the café. Hostage Tori Johnson was killed by Monis and hostage Katrina Dawson was killed by a police bullet ricochet in the subsequent raid. Monis was also killed. Three other hostages and a police officer were injured by police gunfire during the raid
Seem likely? No? How are things progressing?
NSW Bar President @NSWBarPresident The Governor-General has awarded an Australian Bravery Award to the late Katrina Dawson. Katrina was one of our best and brightest barristers at @NSWBar. Katrina is missed. 11:07 pm – 2 Apr 2018 [PST]
7 News Sydney @7NewsSydney Rest in peace Katrina Dawson. Rest in peace Tori Johnson. On this day in 2014, customers and workers were taken hostage inside the Lindt Cafe in Sydney’s Martin Place. @PaulKadak #SydneySiege #7News Lindt Cafe siege There was an emotional return to the cafe this morning, we’ll show you the pictures on @Channel7? at 6pm. 8:00 pm – 14 Dec 2017 [PST] [family of Katrina Dawson at start of video – 3rd anniversary, unveiling of memorial] Another great Diana day for florists.

Ms Dawson, a mother-of-three and one of the outstanding barristers of her generation, had displayed “considerable bravery” during the siege, the Governor-General said. Throughout the siege, Ms Dawson had remained calm and composed when interacting with the gunman and carrying out his demands, the citation said. “At one point it appeared that the offender indicated that Ms Dawson could leave the cafe, however without consideration for her own safety she appealed to and bargained with the offender to also release another hostage. ** “When he refused, Ms Dawson continued to provide genuine support to other hostages throughout the ordeal.” The “other hostage” to which the citation refers is fellow barrister Stefan Balafoutis, who was sitting with Ms Dawson and another friend Julie Taylor, at the beginning of the siege.
Ms Taylor has told how she and Ms Dawson were preparing to exit the cafe when Monis told them they could leave, but that the gunman seemed to change his mind when Ms Dawson asked if Mr Balafoutis could come as well.
- the frequent, selfless, heroic message in psy-ops – “don’t shoot him, shoot me” for example, used in the Jo Cox “murder” psy-op
How did Ms Taylor escape? video in the above link of a “survivor”
After receiving lifesaving treatment for shrapnel wounds suffered during the breaking of the siege, Louisa Hope says she has found her “happy place” raising funds for nurses. I’m feeling happy and well in my heart…focussed on the future..”
Louisa with Mick Fuller, police officer in charge of the drill.
and the drill like image of Louisa in 2014 with “shrapnel wounds”
Louisa is alleged to suffer from multiple sclerosis WHEN the door lock inside the Lindt Chocolat Cafe was smashed and some of the hostages ran for their lives, Louisa Hope could not go too. Even if she wanted to risk it, she couldn’t. She didn’t have the energy needed. Stricken by multiple sclerosis and requiring a walking stick to get around, the 50-year-old hostage had to bide her time, her physical condition compounded by her sheer exhaustion from the humiliating role the gunman forced her to perform. The 50-year-old was his human shield, dragged with the gunman every time he moved his position. source> December 18 2014
The official story, as told by the Daily Mail Louisa Hope, 50, originally from Moruya on the far south coast of New South Wales, and her 74-year-old mother, Robyn, were having coffee at the Lindt Cafe
an interesting use of an ex-husband occurs for the telling of the official narative… The ex-husband and close friend of Ms Hope, who preferred to go by the name Tony V, told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday morning his former partner was injured during the last moments of the siege.
‘He’d used her for a human shield for most of the time that she was in there,’ the ex-husband, who used to live in Bondi but now runs a restaurant in South Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, said.
OH!! ‘Some rustling noises had woke [Monis] when the lad was trying to take the gun off him. ‘That’s when [Mr Johnson] was shot. Apparently that’s when my ex-mother-in-law [Robyn] was then shot in the shoulder and that’s when the police then went in… and that’s when Louisa was shot in the foot.‘
more details from The Courier from Louisa’s brother, Robert Honan Robin and Louisa, who reside in Sydney, had been visiting the city Monday for a business appointment. Sure, take your 74 year old mother along. “They had something on that they had to go to so we would have thought that’s where they were and not in the cafe. “But they went there (to the cafe) first and never got to where they were meant to be going.”
Mr Honan flew to Sydney on Tuesday to visit his loved ones who are in separate hospitals as they undergo treatment.
He said his mother and sister did not want to talk publicly about the experience. “They were terrified and upset and had mixed feelings of they’re alive,” he said. “They were there from the beginning right to the end. I think it was quite a surreal experience.” Lovely and vague. I smell BS

Here’s the obituary for Katrina Dawson [archived] https://www.nswbar.asn.au/docs/webdocs/BN_012015_51_58.pdf
Katrina Watson Dawson was born in Perth in 1976 to parents Sandy and Jane Dawson, and was the youngest of their children, with two elder brothers, Sandy (of Banco Chambers) and Angus.…. Her lunching abilities were legendary…. …Katrina is survived by her husband, Paul Smith, and the three children she adored, Chloe, Ollie and Sasha, as well as her parents Sandy and Jane, and her brothers, Sandy and Angus.
- NDNGH, off to lunch.
Here’s Paul Smith talking about Katrina in 2015
“liked to have fun” Her brothers at 1.55 in the video Angus who leads the Strategy & Corporate Finance Practice across Asia for McKinsey from its Sydney office. Sandy is a QC at Banco Chambers with subsequent hoax management – brother of Katrina Dawson “killed in the Sydney siege” fights £319 traffic find in court….March 20 2017…. why else would such a story be reported internationally? The time is always right for trotting out the official narrative. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4330128/Top-barrister-Sandy-Dawson-fronts-court-traffic-fine.html
However, the divorce of Sanchia Brahimi was not looking trouble free, back in 2017 https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/entertainment/sydney-confidential/famed-chef-guillaume-brahimis-divorce-with-wife-may-get-ugly-as-she-lists-multimillion-dollar-mansion-on-airbnb/news-story/b0ee589b260681485a58a77961ec81fe
It’s understood both parties are gearing up for a nasty courtroom battle over the dividing of assets.
Matters could be made even more prickly given that half of Guillaume’s Sydney restaurant, Bistro Guillaume, is in her name. February 11, 2017 Good news for the legal profession, though.
Smith, a partner in the Sydney office of King & Wood Mallesons says the family will mark the anniversary of Katrina’s death privately
Just days after the siege, Katrina’s family and former Governor-General Quentin Bryce decided to turn the tragedy into something positive by launching the Katrina Dawson Foundation
A respected barrister from Eighth Floor Selborne Chambers in Phillip Street, Katrina was a graduate of the University of Sydney Law School and completed her Master of Laws at the University of NSW. She was called to the Bar in 2005 and her chambers were just metres from the Lindt Café.
It’s a family affair.
This tribute appeared briefly on the chambers’ website https://web.archive.org/web/20150109231612/http://eightselborne.com.au/ 8 Selborne Chambers is devastated by the loss of our beloved ?oor member, Katrina Dawson. Katrina was on her way to becoming one of the leading barristers at the bar. She was also a dear friend to all of us and will be deeply missed. Our heartfelt condolences to all her family and friends. We also send our condolences to everyone affected by this tragic event. We thank all those who have sent messages of support.
The official wiki narrative https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Sydney_hostage_crisis Katrina Dawson, a 38-year-old barrister, was killed when hit by seven police bullet fragments while lying behind a chair, which was hit by 10 bullets er, rrrrright.
Reconstruction The reconstructions are based on precise laser scans of the crime scene, as well as thousands of pieces of ballistic evidence, and are an approximation of what police believed took place in the cafe. suuure…
Crime scene officer Dominic Raneri told the inquest that ballistic evidence suggested Ms Dawson was lying face down with her hands over her head when tactical police stormed in.
Mr Raneri said Ms Dawson suffered cuts on the backs of her hands where it appeared she had been struck by small fragments of wood.
One of the reconstructions shows Ms Dawson taking shelter behind gunman Man Haron Monis in the north-west corner of the cafe.
The same reconstruction shows Monis standing behind a chair as police fired 22 bullets towards him. The inquest previously heard the chair was struck by 10 bullets, and that those bullets may have travelled through the chair before fragmenting and striking Monis. It was also revealed Ms Dawson was fatally wounded when she was struck by fragments of one, or possibly two, of those rounds.
really? Sounds like reconstructed BS to me.
And we only ever get to see one low res press photo of Dawson, a crop from this
possibly supplied by her friend Molly Hutcherson of Randwick NSW? Perhaps an insider? source But she has gone and we are left only with the causelessness, inexplicable of either good or evil.

Vicsim Marcia Mikhael appeared on video from the Lindt cafe in front of a black Isis image and for an ISIS flag to be sent over pronto….
as noted by Jeff C [before he turned, from the JLB/Peekay round table days]
Here she comes, eventually, duping, sorry, writhing in agony [and at end of video below]
She also chatted on the phone
MArcia’s next role was in hoax management, February 7 2015 https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/entertainment/television/sydney-siege-survivor-marcia-mikhael-accuses-police-of-bungling-the-lindt-cafe-rescue-operation/news-story/a15b3f8be9ae3ad26d66fd4fd316bc36 Telling her story of survival for the first time to Seven News, Mikhael [38-year-old Westpac project manager **] has accused police of bungling the rescue operation she argues should have been controlled by the army.
suuuure and it was quite a Westpac convention in there…. Westpac IT specialist Viswa Ankireddy was the last of the group to make it through that door, but felt the heat of a bullet whistling past him
- that’s strange because Marcia allegedly quite her IT job in 2013 winning a bikini championship in Greece.. when aged 42 not 37.

I am very passionate about fitness so I am studying at the Australian Institute of Fitness to become a personal trainer and nutritionist,” she said.
So, what happened after the siege? Looks like the usual “privacy”, not the use of less close relatives to put out the story – https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/newslocal/west/family-and-neighbours-rush-to-support-glenwood-mother-of-three-marcia-mikhael-after-siege-ordeal-at-lindt-cafe/story-fngr8i5s-1227157828598 Mrs Mikhael’s nieces Priscilla and Angela said they were looking after her three children, aged between seven and 19 ** at her Glenwood home.
“We don’t want her to relive what happened, so we just want her to recover in hospital,’’ Angela said. Her sister Priscilla said: “We’re just trying to keep things very calm for the kids.’’ “We just ask for privacy at this time.’’
One neighbour said She’s a very outgoing and helpful woman…

Here’s mum, who goes by the name Maria Fonseca El Khouri, lives in Sydney whose fb page strangely has the name Marcia Mikhael ** https://www.facebook.com/marcia.mikhael.1
Here’s the use of social media in the siege hoax https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/sydney-siege-ends-survivor-marcia-mikhaels-messages-of-hope-20141216-127xqs.html Her niece Christine Mikhael put out a plea on social media, asking members of the public not to share the posts. “Please do not share any statuses on [Facebook] from the hostages,” she wrote. “Please do not share or spread any messages released by the hostages as the terrorist is using them as a means of communication. “This could put my aunty and the others in grave danger.” Early on Tuesday morning when her aunt was rescued from the cafe she posted: “Thank you god!! For all those who have contacted and prayed for us – thank you. My auntie Marcia Mikhael is safe and away from harm. Thoughts are with the injured hostages. Thank you god!!” https://www.facebook.com/CMIKKHAEL who has just become a solicitor.
Only in Brazilian media is she referred to as Marcia El Khouri Mikhael when she allegedly had surgery on both legs.
Here’s Marcia’s BS story ‘They actually carried me across the entire cafe, through the front door of the cafe. And for them to do that, they had to step over Monis. As they’re going over him, I look down,’ she said.
‘… and I see him. It wasn’t a pretty sight. Half [Monis’] brain was, like, hanging out. It was terrible. ‘So they take me outside. And that’s how it ended for me. I was safe,’ Ms Mikhael continued. ‘Katrina was right next to me and she didn’t make it, but I did.
