Man accused of Australian terror plot threatened stabbings

One of two men charged with planning to launch an imminent terrorist attack in Australia appeared on a video threatening to stab the kidneys and necks of their victims, the nation’s prime minister said Thursday, accusing the pair of “monstrous extremism.” Prime

Minister Tony Abbott, who watched the video, told Parliament it depicted one of the men kneeling before the flag with a knife in his hand and a machete in front of him. Abbott quoted the man as saying: “I swear to almighty Allah, we will carry out the first operation for the soldiers of the caliphate in Australia. … I swear to almighty Allah, blond people, there is no room for blame between you and us. We only owe you stabbing the kidneys and striking necks.”
