[Update] Related Story: Racist Lebanese Rappers Sing About Killing Australians

A YouTube video that glorifies notorious gang rapist Bilal Skaf shows there’s a small, antagonistic sub-section within the Lebanese Muslim community, Prime Minister John Howard says.

Mr Howard today described the video as a “shocking exercise”.

“It’s a reminder that there is undoubtedly within a section, a small section, of the Lebanese Muslim community a group of people who are antagonistic to the values and the way of life in this country,” Mr Howard told the Nine Network.

A YouTube user today removed from the website several of the controversial videos, including the Skaf one, called lebo thugs, and another that shows a man being bashed by a gang.

The NSW Premier, Morris Iemma, said this morning that police and the Education Department would investigate whether lebo thugs included images of any current Sydney school students.

A police spokesman said the video will be sent to the NSW Police Legal Services Unit, which will establish if there are any charges arising out of the footage.

He also said the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad and the Counter Terrorist Unit had been informed and police would be making inquiries with the Department of Education.

The three-minute video is backed by a rap song and includes an image of Skaf with a rifle on his lap, footage of a Cronulla riot revenge attack, a photo montage of a group referred to as the “Soldiers of Granville Boys”, and a map of Australia in the colours of the Lebanese flag with the words “under new management” scrawled above it.

Another scene shows a Granville Boys High School shirt with a knife placed on it.

According to a statement issued by Cricket South Africa on Monday, viewers heard Jones say, “the terrorist has got another wicket” when Amla took the catch that dismissed Kumar Sangakkara.
