Exactly Bruce! Hitler's holocaust was a wonderful gift to "Jews"!! It was a reminder to them with a little message, "be nice to others, else, you will be facing this type of consequences". Alas! Disgusting lot refuse to learn.

OFFICIAL documents show Australian authorities were aware of the transfer to Egypt of an Australian terror suspect, ABC TV reported tonight.

Federal Government officials have consistently denied knowing in late 2001 that Mamdouh Habib was moved from Pakistan to Egypt for interrogation as part of the war on terror.

Habib, who returned to Australia in 2005 after being released from the Guantanamo Bay detention centre, claims to have been tortured by Egyptian captors.

Cables and other documents obtained under Freedom of Information legislation show the Australian government knew within days of Mr Habib's transfer that he was in Egypt and in the custody of an Egyptian agency, ABC's Four Corners program reported.

One cable from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) in Canberra dated November 19, 2001 - days after Mr Habib's "rendition" - stated for a fact that he had been transferred to Egypt, the program said.

Another by an Australian Federal Police liaison officer in the Pakistan capital of Islamabad to head office on the same date also states Habib had been removed to the country of his birth.

Mr Habib said he had been interrogated in Egypt about everybody he knew in Australia, including family, friends and neighbours.
