“Our latest drive-by shooting was staged and they were all actors,” the brothers told Sky News, revealing that the young girl was actually their cousin.
“I was acting,” said nine-year-old Mary Jalal who said she was given instructions to hug her ‘father’ in the now notorious drive-by video, played by one of the brothers, and then run away.
The brothers said they were torn about whether to come clean and destroy their “brand”, but ultimately having people know they were fake was seen as better than being hated for scaring a young child.
The brothers have apologised for their pranks but will still face court over whether or not their videos are deemed a public nuisance.
Earlier, Max, 20 and Arman, 18, and another 16-year-old were bailed out and banned from producing any more videos over their stunts that involved what looked like scaring ordinary people with fake AK-47s.
Shortly afterwards, one of the brothers mocked police on social media, saying: “Prison Break, who gone (sic) stop us?”
He then followed up hours later with: “Victoria Police logic: There’s rapist, paedophiles, drug dealers, the list goes on. But they’re sooooo proud they arrested us lmao. Go get some real criminals.”
Three hours later, he shared a post from the Jalal’s joint Facebook page:
The trio received a raft of support from fans on their Facebook page, with many saying the chargers were a step too far.
The three were charged with public nuisance, possessing a prohibited weapon, and behaving in an offensive manner in a public place.
One Facebook commentator posted: “Too many people jump on the bandwagon holding their pitch forks without any thought and understanding of the situation.
“As entertainers they tried a drive by prank similar to ones that have had success on YouTube in the past.
“If there was any malicious intent behind this then they wouldn’t have showed it.”
others said police time was better spent on more pressing issues.
“I love you guys Australia needs a sense of humour,” another commented.
While admitting the drive-by went too far last night the brothers posted: “People overlook the image we posted and the countless time we stated that she wasn’t seen during filming. They just want to bring us down, but that’ll never happen.”
Meanwhile Michael Jalal, the father of the boys, told the Herald Sun the youths had upset their family, but criticised police for charging them.
“In this city, people are walking with real guns … people are doing real firing …” Mr Jalal said.
“My boys, I know they shouldn’t do that, but it’s all fake, it’s all make-up. It’s not a real gun, it’s just a prank.”
He added the boys were “hard working” and had been good students, but had simply taken their jokes too far.
Arman Jalal admitted their drive-by prank was “pretty bad” but older brother Max remained defiant and said they don’t need to take the video down.
The charges arose from a video uploaded this week that depicted three men in traditional Middle Eastern attire pointing and shooting the fake gun at people across Melbourne.
A girl is seen fleeing from a phone booth during one of the staged drive-by shootings in the video.
“The drive-by was messed up, I’ll admit that myself,” Arman told media as he left the Victoria Police complex at Docklands yesterday.
He and Max have been released on bail on the condition they do not produce or upload any offensive images or video on social media.
“We did something pretty bad and the punishment … could have been worse,” he said.
The brothers are due to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates Court on May 20, while the 16-year-old has been bailed to appear at a children’s court.
Max does not think the controversial video should be taken down. “Why would I take the video down?” he said.
The three were arrested after Victoria Police’s counter-terrorism unit searched a suburban Melbourne home yesterday looking for items linked to the video.
“They were contacted by family and surrendered themselves into custody,” assistant commissioner of counter-terrorism command Ross Guenther said.
Arman also said he was tricked into going to the police station.
“The police lied because they told us to go to the station to talk,” he said.
“We weren’t meant to go there to get arrested.”
Mr Guenther said his unit had been monitoring the video pranks for weeks but had decided to take action because the trio’s actions were criminal.
“The nature of the videos has escalated. We believe the tipping point’s been reached,” he said.
“When the material was first identified they were less confronting. They’ve certainly escalated … and that’s why we’ve taken it on.”
The three have described their video as a childish prank, but police do not think it is a laughing matter.
“The video suggests this type of behaviour is OK. It’s definitely not,” Mr Guenther said.
“It’s criminal behaviour and that’s the way we’ll be proceeding with it.” He says authorities are trying to get the videos pulled down.
The brothers did the rounds on breakfast TV yesterday, before taking themselves to police. They first appeared on Today when they admitted to host Karl Stefanovic they “were a bit stupid”, went too far and promised to “tone it down a bit”.
Speaking on the breakfast show, the brothers apologised if they had offended anyone but did say they had permission from the father featured in the video to post it online.
“Now I love satire and some of your stuff is edgy, but you did get that one wrong, right?,” Stefanovic asked the brothers.
“Nup,” Max answered before Arman corrected him with “yes”.
“I mean, yep,” Max said before telling Stefanovic, “I can hardly hear you”.
When asked what their own parents thought about the prank videos, the trio were less forthcoming.
Max, the eldest brother who did most of the talking on behalf of the trio, answered: “No comment on our parents”.
Stefanovic then asked if they were in big trouble, to which they answered yes.
“I think people would be pleased to hear that,” he said.
The Today host, well known for his sense of humour, admitted there was some satirical genius in what the boys created but he hoped they had learned their lesson.
“Terrorism isn’t something to joke about anymore,” Max said.
“We’re going to tone it down a bit more. We’re not going to do pranks at that level.”
The brothers then said they intended to stick to comedy skits in the future “until we can think of a prank that’s not harming anyone”.
Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton yesterday told 3AW’s Neil Mitchell that the boys’ behaviour was “deplorable”.
“Absolutely horrid behaviour running around trying to terrorise members of the community, dressed up in clothing in some ridiculous attempt to look like what they perceive terrorists look like,” Mr Ashton said.
Mr Ashton said people could respond violently being the victim of this sort of prank.
“Or they could have a health scare as a result but also what happens if there was a police officer present who witnessed that, it could be a very deadly situation.
“We believe there could be criminal offences committed there, assaults, and imitation firearms and also as I understand it, these people have made some money which is proceeds of crime,” he said.
The trio also appeared on Sunrise yesterday, after their stint on Today, where they were quizzed by hosts Samantha Armytage and David Koch.
Koch asked the brothers what other Muslims made of their stunt and why they dressed as Muslims during the sketches.
“We didn’t dress up as Muslims,” Arman said. “It was Arabian dress,” he said, adding the costume wasn’t religious but traditional.
“They shouldn’t see us as representing Muslims,” Max said. “That’s not what our aim is, our videos don’t represent Islam in a bad way.”
The brothers reiterated that they had approached the father and daughter caught up in the latest prank and apologised to both.
It is not the first time the brothers have sparked outrage with their stunts.
In 2015, they posted a video on Facebook that showed a man dressed in Arabic clothing throwing a bag at a man. The man was so terrified he jumped into a nearby reservoir.
The video caused a massive social media backlash with the brothers criticised for unnecessarily scaring members of the public.
Their appearance on breakfast TV yesterday followed a grilling by The Project’sWaleed Aly and guest panellist and journalist Stan Grant on Wednesday night.
Aly questioned the authenticity of the videos and asked if they were fake, but the boys assured them they were real, while Grant asked if they realised the seriousness of the experience they were putting innocent people through.
“I’ll tell you what’s real: I spent 10 years covering war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan right through the Middle East,” Grant told the boys.
“I stood in the blood of terrorist bombings. And the people that get killed, overwhelmingly, in terrorist attacks are Muslims themselves. There is nothing funny about this, there’s nothing real about what you’re doing, it is abhorrent. Do you ever stop and think about the message you’re sending?”
Max responded, saying: “If we pretended to kill people in another way would it be cool then? … How come they aired Punk’d for 10 years on TV and everyone seemed to be all right with that, or scare tactics, if you remember that?”.

BREAKING: He’s Been CHARGED! Will Spend 15 Years In Prison – This Is HUGE!
Law and order is what separates us from the uncivilized. We have to have rules that people must abide by, and punishments if they don’t, otherwise our society would descend into anarchy. Might would make right, and basically, we would end up like most of the Middle East (hence, the reason people are fleeing as quickly as they can).
Another absolute imperative of a polite and orderly society is for the punishment to fit the crime. We can’t be cutting off the hands of beggars who steal an apple because they’re hungry, or slapping murderers on the wrist and sending them back out to kill again. There has to be some sort of sliding scale, and in this country, we have that. However, sometimes that line gets complicated, because of it hinges partially on motive.
One classic example is the difference in punishment between premeditated crimes and crimes of passion. If you’re caught up in the moment and you do something terrible, the punishment just isn’t going to be as bad as if you plotted and planned and basically turn out to be a psychopath who will do evil no matter what. But then the waters get even muddier when we talk about hate crimes. This is an area where those who perpetrate a crime against someone who has something about them that people love to hate will get a harsher punishment to try and curb groups being targeted.
This gets extremely complicated when it comes to religion, because unlike race, religion is something you choose, and while religion is protected in the United States, there’s one particular religion that many of us take exception to, and it’s the religion of Islam. Pamela Geller reports that one man who was particularly disenfranchised with Islam and what it’s doing to this country might be getting a bad rap. His crime was just that, a crime, and one that he should be punished for, but should he have federal charges leveled against him for breaking into a mosque and putting bacon inside? That’s the question at hand, and the answer starts with defining the difference between a crime and a “hate crime”:
“Crime: An illegal act against a victim.
Hate Crime: An illegal thought during a crime against a protected class of victim including religion.
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer provided news and commentary about Michael Wolfe, sentenced to 15 years for alleged criminal mischief against, and alleged placement of bacon on the doorstep of, a mosque in Titusville, FL, on Jan. 2, 2016.
Wolfe is not a sympathetic character, considering his rap sheet. But 15 years? The Information has two charges:
Count I: Armed Burglary of a Structure with Hate Crime Enhancement (LF); and
Count II: Criminal Mischief to a Place of Worship with Hate Crime (F2).
Wow: Count I has a sentence up to life in prison. Burglary means a person who enters or remains in a dwelling, a structure or conveyance with the intent to commit an offense therein. Armed? A machete was allegedly used to break approximately $800 total for two surveillance cameras, the floodlights, and the window. But a hate crime – evidencing prejudice – reclassifies a felony, 1st degree, to life felony!
Wow again: Count II has a sentence up to 30 years in prison. Criminal Mischief means a person who willfully and maliciously injures or damages by any means any real or personal property belonging to another. The simple version is a misdemeanor, 1st degree, punishable up to a year in county jail. But a hate crime – upon a mosque – makes it a felony, 3rd degree. Add a habitual offender, and its reclassified as a felony, 2nd degree, punishable by a minimum of 15 years, and a maximum of 30 years in prison.
Who called the Federal Bureau of Investigation? An FBI agent was present during an interview of Wolfe. Could there have been an implied threat of federal charges?
No wonder Wolfe plea bargained for dismissal of Count I in exchange for guilty of Count II.
From the Court order’s date, Wolfe has 30 days to appeal the conviction and sentence. Consider this possibility: It could effectively be a death sentence. Wolfe likely will be placed in the general population of the prison. There may be Muslim inmates, who may act on a de facto fatwa and attempt to injure or murder Wolfe.
Wolfe’s case: ‘The intent is to really deter similar kinds of hate crime,’ Imam Muhammad Musri is quoted in a news article, Bacon used in Hate Crime, written by Tess Sheets, a reporter for the Florida Today in Melbourne, FL.
So is there a wave of anti-Islamic sentiment in Florida?
There was a total of 18 offenses against all religions within the entire State of Florida for 2015. See the website of the Florida Attorney General, In Hate Crimes in Florida, under Table 5: Hate Crimes Comparison.
Within the entire Brevard County (2015): An unidentified religion had one offense of Destruction / Damage / Vandalism of Property, as reported by the Melbourne Police Dept.
Looks like the citizens of Florida are safe from a wave of hate crimes against religion.
But don’t tell that to the Southern Poverty Law Center (aka ‘fake news’), which is listed in the report’s Appendix 3: Sources of Additional Information.
All of the above, as public records, are attached as a PDF via this link.“
The argument can be made that while Wolfe was completely out of line, his crime had at least an undertone of self-defense in a broad sense. We all know any one of us could be a target of a true Muslim believer, and many don’t like having that element around.
What do you think? Is this punishment too harsh for someone’s out of line retaliation against an Islamic house of worship?

BOMBSHELL News About NY Senator And Muslim… THIS IS SICKENING!!!
Democrats did this!
You may have seen Kristen Gillibrand’s name in news headlines lately as she’s jousting with President Trump on Twitter. She’s consistently made a fool of herself with lame Tweets, acting as though she’s the spokesperson for all women, and living up to the “nevertheless she persisted” nonsense drivel spoonfed by Elizabeth Warren and eaten by feminists. None of this is newsworthy anymore after what reports just revealed about Gillibrand, the New York Democrat Senator, and her Muslim athlete friend accused of molesting a young girl.
Gillibrand enjoyed calling out Al Franken for sexually related accusations (with picture evidence) and suggesting that he resign. She’s attacked President Trump for the accusations he’s been wrapped in, although there’s no evidence. A new report involving Bill O’Reilly suggests that one woman was allegedly offered $200,000 to accuse Trump of sexually related crimes, and there are claims that someone caught it on tape. However, Gillibrand has one more person to call out and the public is wondering what will happen next.
The person she needs to call out now is a Muslim man who was previously denied entry into America, but later gained entry to America thanks to Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer. That same man, 24-year-old Indian snowshoe racer Tanveer Hussain, was accused of molesting an innocent 12-year-old girl. That’s right, folks. Gillibrand more or less vouched for an alleged pedophile child molester who was legitimately accused by a real victim – not accused by a made up victim possibly paid off to make false accusations.
100% Fed Up reports:
“An Indian athlete who overcame a visa denial with the help of U.S. lawmakers and a local mayor to attend the World Snowshoe Championship in New York has been arrested on charges of the abuse of a minor.
It was a long journey for Indian snowshoe champion Hussain and his coach to the World Snowshoe Championships in Saranac Lake, New York last weekend.
The US embassy in New Delhi rejected Tanveer Hussain’s application for a visa so he could compete in the World Snowshoe Championship last month, Fox News reported.
Local officials then appealed for help to Schumer and Gillibrand, and their offices reached out to the New Delhi embassy, which let Hussain successfully reapply for a visa.
Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer, an outspoken opponent of President Trump’s position on stricter immigration policies for immigrants and visa holders coming into the United States, bragged about getting around Trump’s temporary travel restrictions to bring convicted pedophile Tanveer Hussain to New York on his Facebook page”
Seeing pictures of Hussain surrounded by children is repulsive after learning about the accusations of his alleged inappropriate contact with a girl who was only 12-years-old. The victim may have been one of the girls from the Saranac Middle School, and there’s a picture of him surrounded by more kids. You can see he had his arm around one girl, but we are unsure of who the victim is because she’s underage and her identity may be protected.
“The grand jury returned the indictment charging Tanveer Hussain with one count of first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, a report in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise quoted a press release from Essex County District Attorney Kristy Sprague as saying.
The reckless and irresponsible acts of Democrat legislators like Senator Chuck Schumer, perfectly illustrates why Trump was right about demanding that we put additional vetting measures in place for immigrants.
Hussain and team manager Abid Khan arrived Feb. 23 in the bucolic Adirondacks town, which had been following their visa ordeal and extended them a hero’s welcome. Locals offered congratulations and free lodgings at an inn that in the snow looked like a “fairy tale scene from a movie,” Khan said in a Facebook post.
The “fairy tale” was shattered Wednesday, when Hussain, 24, was arrested and charged with felony sexual abuse and child welfare endangerment, police said.
The parents of the 12-year-old girl allegedly involved said the incident happened Monday, after the end of the three-day snowshoe competition, and reported it to local authorities.”
The girl was reportedly staying at an inn where Hussain was also staying. According to reports, the girl was playing pool one afternoon with some people who may have been around her age of 12-years-old. At some point, it’s reported that the girl was alone with Hussain and they kissed. She was then groped on the outside of her clothing in what is listed as an “intimate” area.
“Chief Charles A. Potthast Jr. of the Saranac Lake Village police force said the girl was playing pool Monday afternoon with other young people at the inn where Hussain was staying.
“There was a moment when the two were alone, and that’s when the incident occurred,” Potthast said. The girl told police there was a “passionate kiss” and that Hussain touched her in an intimate area on top of her clothing.”
You may proceed to vomit and thank the Democrats for helping the alleged criminal attain entry to America and put our innocent children at risk of being molested by a Muslim pedophile.

BREAKING! Trump Just Revealed Shocking Method NYC Terrorists Got Into The USA
This has to end, now!
Just a couple months after a radical Muslim terrorist ran down pedestrians on a New York City street on Halloween, another deranged Muslim named Akayed Ullah attempted to steal more innocent lives in the bustling city. Thankfully, Ullah was not skilled in his terrorist ways, and his homemade pipe bomb that he strapped to his body malfunctioned only injured the would-be suicide bomber.
Now, literally after the smoke has cleared from the failed terrorist attack people are wondering how in the hell this guy entered the United States, and now we may have some answers thanks to President Trump.
There is a reason that President Trump wanted a stricter vetting process for people coming to America from countries with ties to terrorism, and voila, here it is. The 27-year-old Bangladeshi man identified as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah was allowed into the country thanks to a little thing called chain immigration.
You see how this is works is one family member is approved and receives a green card which then the approved family member is allowed to bring their family members with them. The issue with that is that these family members are not properly vetted and then allowed to enter the country without knowing anything about them. So, common sense dictates that these people should be vetted which is precisely what President Trump would like to do, and this could be just the push that is needed to ensure that the vetting process is followed from here on out.
Here is more from Daily Mail:
President Donald Trump said Monday a bomb blast in Manhattan highlights the need for an immigration overhaul – as the man arrested was revealed to be part of a large Bangladeshi family sponsored by his aunt or uncle.
Trump said that the U.S. ‘must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people’ into the country.
The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place.
And he called on Congress to end ‘chain migration,’ in which family members are permitted to join relatives who have immigrated.
A Bangladeshi man identified as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah was taken into custody with serious injuries after a pipe bomb he was carrying malfunctioned and exploded prematurely inside a Midtown Manhattan subway station.
He had come from Bangladesh in 2011, apparently with his parents and three or four siblings – all of them sponsored by his aunt or uncle, his immigration status showed.
Ullah is a Bangladeshi national who has been living in the U.S. for the past seven years. Fox News reports that the former taxi driver came to the U.S. on a F-4 visa, a preferential visa for those who have family already in the U.S. The Post says he is a legal green-card holder.
His immigration designation is F-43, which means he claimed the right to a green card because he is the child of the brother or sister of a U.S. citizen.
The U.S. citizen can be newly naturalized. Trump’s statement suggests that Ullah claimed a green card by virtue of a citizen who was also an immigrant.
Records show that Ullah moved to the U.S. from Chittagong, Bangladesh in February 2011 on the F4 visa, and is now a legal green-card owner.
He reportedly immigrated with his parents and three to four siblings. Trump’s statement suggests that one of his parents’ siblings had gained citizenship then petitioned for multiple family members.
Ullah had recently visited his home country on September 8.
Investigators have yet to determine an official motivation for the failed attack, but there have been reports that Ullah was inspired by ISIS.
It was the second time in two months that New York City was the target of a terrorist attack and the first since President Trump sparked Muslim outrage around the world last week by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Now, of course, President Trump will do whatever is in his power to make sure that vetting processes are followed, but when you have liberals like Mayor Bill de Blasio usurping his authority it makes the situation rather difficult.
These liberal morons would rather allow radicalized Muslims to enter the country to create chaos in the name of political correctness instead of protecting the American citizens. That is why it is so important that in the upcoming midterm elections the American vote in people that will support President Trump and his agenda to make America great again before these liberal goons try to ruin it forever.
