Was Bondi Junction Killer An Islamic Terrorist / Immigrant?!

Was the Bondi Junction killer an Islamic terrorist or a Muslim immigrant?! Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!


Claim : Bondi Junction Killer Was Islamic Terrorist / Immigrant!

Right after news broke about a man who stabbed and killed six people at Bondi Junction, some people immediately claimed or suggested that he was an Islamic terrorist or a Muslim immigrant!

Mike Davis : An Islamic terrorist goes on a stabbing rampage in an Australian mall. Targeting women, children, and babies. And the men don’t have guns to stop him?

1. Repeal gun control. Arm up.

2. Deport unvetted fighting-aged men from countries that hate Christians and Jews. Smarten up.

Truth : Bondi Junction Killer Was Not Islamic Terrorist / Immigrant!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating on social media, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Bondi Junction Killer Was From Queensland

Let me start by pointing out that the Bondi Junction killer was identified as Joel Cauchi – a 40 year-old man from Toowoomba, Queensland. It was his family who contacted the police, after recognising him on the news.

Joel Cauchi lived a transient lifestyle, and travelled to Sydney in March 2024. At about 3:20 PM on 13 April 2024, Cauchi entered Westfield Bondi Junction and started stabbing people randomly with a knife, killing six people and injuring 12 others.

When police inspector Amy Scott confronted Fauci on the 5th floor, he lunged at her with a knife. She then shot him twice in his chest, and performed CPR on him after he collapsed. However, Joel Cauchi died on the scene.

To be clear – Joel Cauchi was a native Australian, and not an immigrant. None of those who claimed that he was an immigrant actually provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Fact #2 : Bondi Junction Attack Was Not Terror-Related

Not only was Joel Cauchi not an immigrant, there is no indication he is a Muslim, or even a terrorist of any kind. In fact, the police has stated that the attack was no terror-related.

There was also no report that Joel Cauchi screamed Allahu Akbar  (God is greater) as he stabbed people at Westfield Bondi Junction.

Unsurprisingly, none of those who claimed that Joel Cauchi was an Islamic terrorist, ever provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Fact #3 : Joel Cauchi Had Mental Health Problems

According to Queensland Police Assistant Commissioner Roger Lowe, Joel Cauchi was known to the police for mental health issues over the past four years, but had not been arrested or arrested for any offence.

He has not been prosecuted or arrested or charged for any offence within Queensland, and he has no record within the courts for a domestic violence order.

New South Wales police also dismissed links to terrorist ideologies, saying that Joel Cauchi acted alone, and had a history of mental health issues. It is believed that Joel Cauchi was suffering from schizophrenia when he stabbed random people (while ignoring others) at Westfield Bondi Junction.

He was first diagnosed with mental health issues when he was 17, but his mental health apparently declined in recent years. A neighbour at his childhood home told the media that Joel Cauchi had schizophrenia growing up.

They seem like a nice family with a nice house but he had schizophrenia growing up.

Needless to say – those who claimed that the Bondi Junction killer was an Islamic terrorist, or a Muslim immigrant, and not just a mentally-disturbed man.
