Australian Bakery Bakes Hamas-Themed Birthday Cake For Four-Year-Old, Probe Launched
Police officials in Sydney have launched a probe to investigate Oven Bakery who baked a cake with pictures of Hamas terrorist Abu Ubaida for the birthday of a four-year-old child.

Police in Australia are probing a bakery in Sydney which made a cake featuring Hamas terrorist and propagandist Abu Obeida and Palestinian flags for a four-year-old boy. The cake was made by a company called Oven Bakery by Fufu. The Australian Federal Police have launched a probe.

The bakery also went ahead and uploaded the photos of the cake it baked to social media but deleted those posts following furious backlash which forced it to shut down its Facebook and Instagram pages.

The premier of the Australian state of New South Wales, Chris Minns, called the images that adorned the cake “horrifying”.

“(Hamas is) an evil terrorist organisation. Kids’ parties should be innocent and fun, not hateful. It is horrifying (that there were cakes with the face of Abu Ubaida on them),” Minns was quoted as saying by Australian media outlets. “Instead of baked goods celebrating terrorists, we should be celebrating people in our community who are promoting a more cohesive society,” Mark Speakman, the leader of the opposition in New South Wales, said.

Abu Ubaida is a pseudonym used by Huzaifa Samir Abdullah al-Kahloot, who is the spokesman for Hamas’ armed wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, according to the Israeli army. Very little is known about him and he appears mostly on social media wearing a red keffiyeh scarf and his face masked.

Photos also showed a little boy named Omar standing beside the cake with his finger raised. He was dressed in a red and white headscarf and a camouflaged jacket, just like the image of Abu Ubaida on the cake. Abu Ubaida was also seen on the cupcakes that were made for Omar’s birthday party.

The Australian Jewish Association called it child abuse.

“Dressing up a child as a terrorist, including with what appears to be a Hamas headband, is reprehensible and a form of child abuse. Islamic extremism and radicalisation of youth is not just a problem for the Jewish community. It’s a threat to all Australians,” said Robert Gregory, the chief executive of the Australian Jewish Association.

“Australia has seen several recent incidents of Muslim youth allegedly stabbing or plotting to attack other Australians. Indoctrination starts at a young age and is similar to what is seen across the Middle East,” Australian Jewish Association’s chief said.

Alex Ryvchin, the co-chief executive of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, said that it was ‘a rare kind of psychosis’ where small children are taught that ‘Hamas terrorists are to be admired and emulated’.

“Boys with normal parents will be celebrating with Batman or Real Madrid themes, which nurture an understanding of good versus evil, healthy role models and striving for excellence,” he said.

“If this is what is happening in some Sydney homes, we should prepare for a generation of violent extremists. The parents and the baker who thought it was acceptable to glorify proscribed terrorists should be ashamed,” Ryvchin further added.

Ubaida often appears in Hamas’ videos and has been seen on those videos on several occasions following the October 7 attacks. When Israelis launched the retaliatory military campaign, Ubaida had threatened the execution of a captive each time a home in Gaza was bombed without warning.
