Melbourne, May 7 (ANI): The leader of Sydney's radical Middle Eastern street gang - Asesinoz MC - has accused Australians of racism.
The 29-year-old, who calls himself Sam "The Assassin", defended the Parramatta-based gang's violent image in its YouTube videos and MySpace site.
They promote anti-Australian sentiment and flag burning.
"There are a handful of good Australians but most are racist by assuming Lebanese people are responsible for all crimes," he told The Daily Telegraph publicly for the first time.
"When they see a Middle Eastern walking down the street they assume they are Lebanese. I am half Lebanese and half Iraqi but I want the public and the police to know this: Don't forget about the Persians, Iraqis, Afghanis, Turks etc . . . because they do crimes too. That is why we have posted these videos up," he said.
The president of one of the city's newest street gangs, he said he was known as Sam Asesinoz, which means assassin in Spanish, although it was not his real name. (ANI)
