August 23, 2011 11:59

A Muslim man is fighting multiple indictments in the District Court of New South Wales for sending letters to families of soldiers who died in Afghanistan and to the family of a trade official who died in last year's Jakarta bombing, according to an AAP report in Tuesday's The Sydney Morning Herald.

In one instance, Man Haron Monis described a Jewish soldier who had killed a civilian as a "dirty animal" in a letter to politicians and the Jewish community. "Some Jews who blame Hitler for violations of human rights are not much better than him," he added.
