“You are Christian, you will burn in hell. You will …have your throat slit”

Australia, 2015:
A WOMAN detained in a counterterrorism raid allegedly punched one police officer in the face and told another she would have her throat slit…
The Muslim woman, who declined to stand for Magistrate Margaret McGlynn during the Parramatta Local Court hearing yesterday, is charged with assaulting and intimidating police.
Her lawyer Steven Boland argued she did not deliberately hit the officer. She was not the target of the search or named in the warrant but was searched when police noticed she had a mobile phone underneath her burqa, the court heard.
When a female senior constable tried to take the mobile phone from her she allegedly hurled abuse at her. Senior-Constable Stacie Gwyn told the court the woman said: “Don’t touch my phone, you’re a whore, you are Christian, you will burn in hell. You will be the first one in uniform to have your throat slit.”
After an alleged struggle to take the phone, a male officer tried to restrain the woman… and [she] struck him with a closed fist on the nose…
Scott Murphy, the federal police officer in charge of the search, said ... he also heard the allegedly vile abuse ...
“You can’t touch me, you like getting gang banged do you? You are in uniform you must like it. The only one who has the right is God,” Mr Murphy told the court the woman allegedly said to Sen-Const Gwyn.
