Hawke's Bay Muslim forms own Islamic State
by Harrison Christian
A Hawke's Bay Muslim man is calling on "souljahs of Allah" to make their way to Hastings and join him in forming the "Islamic State of Aotearoa".
Te Amorangi Kireka-Whaanga, of Hastings, who heads the Aotearoa Maori Muslim Association, said in a Facebook post yesterday he had changed the organisation's name to the Islamic State of Aotearoa.
Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule said Mr Kireka-Whaanga's Facebook posts were "very concerning," considering the Islamic State's violent reputation in the Middle East.
