Australian Jewish Woman Receives Threat From Terrorist Supporter Through Facebook

NewsNow

COUNTER-TERRORISM agents have launched an investigation into a multi-national terror threat made against an Australian using social networking website Facebook.

The first investigation of its kind was prompted by a death threat emanating from the Middle East against a Jewish woman and her family from an alleged
member of the Iranian-backed terror group Hezbollah.

The woman received the death threat from the self-proclaimed terrorist through the website after she declined the man's online "friendship request".

The man who described himself as Ibrahim Dirani and a member of a Lebanon-based Facebook group was banned by the network after police launched their investigation this week, The Weekend Australian reported.

The victim who lives in Melbourne and is a member of an Israeli-based Facebook group told police the alleged Lebanon-based Hezbollah operative promised to kill her and her family.

According to police documents, the man wrote: "I am Hezbollah and I am going to kill you and all of your family promise you."

Let's hope leads will capture the perpetrator of the death threat. Scum!
