Heartbreaking. The murder victims of the devout Muslim waging jihad in a Lindt Chocolate Shop were hostages identified as Sydney lawyer and Lindt cafe manager.

So little is said of the real victims of these Islamic holy wars.  The enemedia hand-wrings over islamophobia; Western elites like President Obama, PM Cameron et al insist the Islamic State “is not islamic.”
But this is who we should be mourning. This is who we should be defending and avenging. The bodies pile up as the West recedes and recoils from the truth.

She was a devoted mother-of-three children and a valued member of her floor and of our bar community.

“Our thoughts are with her family at this time including her brother Sandy Dawson of Banco Chambers.”

Mr Johnson was trying to wrestle the weapon away from the Muslim terrorist when he was killed.

Sydney siege: Killed hostages identified as Sydney lawyer and Lindt cafe manager

Lawyer Katrina Dawson (left) and Lindt cafe manager Tori Johnson died after being held by a gunman for more than 16 hours.

The two hostages killed after a 16-hour siege in Sydney have been identified as the manager of the Lindt cafe and a lawyer.

It is not clear whether they were shot by the gunman or killed in the crossfire, when heavily-armed officers stormed the building in Martin Place in the early hours.

Self-styled Iranian cleric Man Haron Monis was shot dead by police after taking 17 people hostage at the Lindt Chocolate Cafe.

Victim Katrina Dawson, 38, worked as a barrister at Selbourne Chambers in the CBD and had three young children.

Ms Dawson was married to Paul Smith, a partner at Mallesons, whom she met while completing her clerkship at the firm.

She studied law at Sydney University, where she lived at the women’s college as a student.

She topped the state in her high school certificate in 1994 with a TER of 100 and also topped her bar exams.

The NSW Bar Association said Ms Dawson had been held hostage with two other barristers.

“Katrina was one of our best and brightest barristers who will be greatly missed by her colleagues and friends at the NSW Bar,” the association said in a statement.

“She was a devoted mother-of-three children and a valued member of her floor and of our bar community.

“Our thoughts are with her family at this time including her brother Sandy Dawson of Banco Chambers.”
Cafe manager was ‘well-liked by staff’

Tori Johnson, 34, had been employed at the Lindt cafe since October 2012 and had worked at a string of other restaurants and hospitality companies around Sydney.

Sources have told the ABC Mr Johnson was trying to wrestle the weapon away from the gunman when he was killed, but authorities have not confirmed whether this was the case.

Former colleague Tony Manno, who worked with Mr Johnson at Sydney’s Adria Rybar & Grill for a number of years, said he was shattered to hear the news this morning.

“Tori was a great guy, a good guy to be around,” he said.

“He got on really well with all the staff.”

Lindt and Sprüngli, which owns the cafe, released a statement on Facebook thanking NSW Police and offering support to the siege victims and their families.

“Our thoughts and feelings are with the victims and their families who have been through an incredible ordeal, and we want to pay tribute to their courage and bravery,” the statement said.

The Sunshine Coast father of a Lindt employee caught up in the siege said he was relieved his daughter made it out alive but was horrified at the loss of others.

Harriette Denny, 30, ran from the cafe with five other hostages, just before police launched their assault.

Robert Denny said his family spent an anxious night watching the events unfold on television but had now spoken with his daughter.

“I spoke with her twice today, maybe three times I can’t remember and she’s okay,” he said.

“She’s tired, she’s relieved and she’s distressed that her friend the duty manager didn’t make it through.”
