I’ve lived in Australia for almost 8 years, and I’ve never been this proud of this country. The siege in Sydney brings out the best of Australian people who decided to stick together and said “there’s always a bad seed in every religion, race, etc.”. Hence, the hashtag, #illridewithyou. And then, how the media acted on the whole situation. From the bottom of my heart, i want to say, thank you Australia. You have been a very kind, generous and an open country to all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you Strayah! I hope all the hostages can overcome the trauma, and to the two people who died, let the world know, that this is the real meaning of Jihad. You are a true hero. May God’s love be with you and your family. Amin.
