Very nicely I should think based on the latest from South of the Earth’s waistline. Seems they have a major problem with “uncovered meat,” at least they do according to the mufti of Sydney’s biggest mosque.
It’s safe to assume he’s not referring to naked sheep in the local market if your were. Sheik Taj Aldin al Hilali gave a religious address on adultery to around 500 worshipers in Sydney. During that address he compared women who do not wear a headscarf to “uncovered meat”, implying that they invited sexual assault.
Hilali said: “If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside … without cover, and the cats come to eat it … whose fault is it, the cats’ or the uncovered meat’s?
“The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred.”
Frankly I’m shocked. I never realized the hajib held such power as to ward of the advances of males seeking to get them some. It’s all very Capt’n Kirk like: “Shields up, they’re going to attack!!!”
It’s important to remember his statement was in response to attacks on four women for which a group of young Lebanese men received long jail sentences, 65 years to be precise.
Sheik Hilali said in a statement he was shocked by reaction to his sermon. Yea I bet he was, shocked his words leaked out and the infidels got wind of them. At this point someone within his mosque can probably expect his 72 virgins to all look like Oprah – with an overdose of botox.
It’s nice to know even the jihadist-cut-throats have those that leak sensitive information to those not “privileged” to hear or read it. It’s very New York Times-like would’t you agree?
As expected the mufti (how can anyone take seriously someone with the title of MUFTI?) at word of the leak issued an “apology.”
“I would like to unequivocally confirm that the presentation related to religious teachings on modesty and not to go to extremes in enticements, this does not condone rape, I condemn rape,” he said. “Women in our Australian society have the freedom and right to dress as they choose, the duty of man is to avert his glance or walk away.”
Condemn rape to the infidels, in English. But within the mosque, in Arabic and in front of the like-minded, it’s women and goats take cover. The “cats” are hungry. The government backed jihadists in the Sudan lay waste to any thoughts of jihadists thinking rape is a criminal affair and should be condemned. They use rape as a weapon.
Australia’s Sex Discrimination Commissioner Pru Goward said Hilali’s comment was an incitement to rape and that Australia’s Muslims should force him to stand down.
An excellent sentiment, but not likely. Two years ago while in Lebanon he said the Sept. 11 attacks were “God’s work against the oppressors.” Nothing happened then and nothing will happen now.
UPDATE: The Counter-terrorism Blog has an excellent piece up on the rise of home-grown Islamist militancy in Australia.
UPDATE: II Wizbang’s Kim Priestap notes a related story from Australia’s “News.com.” The Australian mufti was greated by a hoard of reporters as he emerged from Friday’s prayers. When asked whether he would quit over his ludicrous speech he replyed: “After we clean the world of the White House first.”
He must be on Pelosi’s and Dean’s mailing list, he’s using the same idiotic talking points.
