Why the chocolate shop?

Over at The Thinking Housewife there is discussion of the motives for choosing the Lindt chocolate shop to take hostages.

It seems clear to me why he chose this location, because it can literally by seen from the offices of Channel 7 television directly across the mall. The cameras of the morning shows would still be running at that time.

I recall Islamic State giving instructions to "lone wolf" jihadists to (a) make sure there is video and (b) make it known that it's an attack by Islamic State sympathisers (hence the perp's demand for an Islamic State flag in exchange for releasing some hostages).

The whole country is sick to the stomach right now. This is the first successful attack on home soil (other plots have been thwarted).

Here is the worst photo I've seen, because it demonstrates our intellectual bankruptcy regarding Islam.
