Mohammad Sharab, an anti-Israel activist involved in the February kidnapping of an Australian man, was seen wearing the Hamas emblem at a rally in Melbourne.
An anti-Israel activist facing charges for involvement in a kidnapping and torturing an Australian man was seen wearing the Hamas emblem at a Melbourne rally on Sunday.

Mohammad Sharab, 37, is one of the alleged perpetrators of a Feb.16 Braybrook attack along with co-conspirator and anti-Israel activist Laura Allam. Sharab, charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, armed robbery, threats to kill, intentionally causing injury, recklessly causing injury, unlawful assault, and assault with a weapon, was present at the Sunday Melbourne rally, giving a speech to fellow protesters.

In a video published on his Instagram account, Sharab can be seen wearing on his chest the emblem of Hamas, which is proscribed as a terrorist organization by Australia. A drummer was also seen wearing a scarf with the Hamas logo.

Hezbollah logos, black Jihadist flags seen
Anti-Israel activists also shared images on social media of a placard with the logo of Hezbollah, also proscribed as a terrorist organization.

Videos showed multiple black Jihadist flags and the red inverted triangle used in terrorist propaganda widely displayed throughout the march.

Green Party leader Adam Bandt addressed the protesters when they marched to the Victoria Parliament to protest the alleged deaths of Palestinians killed in an IDF rescue mission of four hostages, according to Free Palestine Coalition Naarm.
