The Australian: Hilali blasts the US

AUSTRALIA’S leading Muslim cleric, Sheik Taj Aldin al-Hilali, says he will only resign when the world is “clean of the White House”.

After emerging from Friday prayers at Lakemba Mosque today, Sheik al-Hilali was asked by a media pack whether he would quit over a speech in which he said scantily-dressed women invited rape.

“After we clean the world of the White House first,” the sheik said.

Supporters of the sheik cheered and applauded loudly at the comments, which were directed firmly at US President George W Bush.

The sheik has previously described Mr Bush, UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and Prime Minister John Howard as the axis of evil.

Despite calls from within the Islamic community for his resignation, Sheik Alhilali has been assured he has the support of grass-roots Muslims, a supporter said.

Islam is the religion of peace – MY ASS!

How about a one way trip to GITMO for this MORON? Or better yet a RENDITION to Eastern Europe with Chinese H20 torture interrogation?

Other Muslim figures have called for him to stand down over a sermon last month in which he likened immodestly dressed women to uncovered meat.

Several thousand Muslims attended prayers at Lakemba Mosque today where British Imam Abdul Jalil Sajid gave the sermon in English in place of Sheik al-Hilali.

Supporter and president of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, Keysar Trad, says the sheik will not resign but is taking a break which will include a pilgrimage to Mecca.

John Howard should make sure the good Shiek stays in Saudia Arabia. This Shiek is a MORON and very typical of the fundamentalist Islamists who wish to spread Islam throughout the western world.

Women of the West should mind his comments on “UNCOVERED MEAT” because believe it or not this is what they truly believe.

Mr Zrika said Sheik al-Hilali is not speaking for all Muslims and the LMA hopes to meet with him again shortly to discuss his situation.

Mr Zrika fears the sheik’s comments will cause a serious divisions within Muslims and a backlash from the wider Australian community.

He also asked Prime Minister John Howard and other politicians to stay out of the debate.

“Leave the Islam community to the Islam community,” he said.

Right…….

Stay tuned……

The Australian News: Muslim leader blames women for sex attacks

THE nation’s most senior Muslim cleric has blamed immodestly dressed women who don’t wear Islamic headdress for being preyed on by men and likened them to abandoned “meat” that attracts voracious animals.

In a Ramadan sermon that has outraged Muslim women leaders, Sydney-based Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali also alluded to the infamous Sydney gang rapes, suggesting the attackers were not entirely to blame.

While not specifically referring to the rapes, brutal attacks on four women for which a group of young Lebanese men received long jail sentences, Sheik Hilali said there were women who “sway suggestively” and wore make-up and immodest dress … “and then you get a judge without mercy (rahma) and gives you 65 years”.

“But the problem, but the problem all began with who?” he asked.

The leader of the 2000 rapes in Sydney’s southwest, Bilal Skaf, a Muslim, was initially sentenced to 55 years’ jail, but later had the sentence reduced on appeal.

In the religious address on adultery to about 500 worshippers in Sydney last month, Sheik Hilali said: “If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it … whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat?

“The uncovered meat is the problem.”

The sheik then said: “If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred.”

He said women were “weapons” used by “Satan” to control men.

Wonder what the Women’s Liberation Movement would have to say to this cleric here in the USA?

Oh……the peaceful simplistic/primitive beauty of Sharia Law………

NOT

Keep them barefoot and in their Hijab – what a novel approach? After all, you don’t want to leave that meat “UNCOVERED.”

Linked to Allah.

Britain Veil Watch: Veil FLAP Could Trigger Riots

Posted Posted in Culture, Global War on Terror, Politics

Muslim women are pictured at the Whitechapel market in east London. Former foreign minister Jack Straw has defended his call for Muslim women to remove their veils despite a storm of protests — and went further, saying he would like veils not to be worn at all.

AFP: Britain’s race chief warns of violence over veil row

The row in Britain over Muslim women wearing the veil could trigger riots and worse, the country’s race relations watchdog chief warned.

Trevor Phillips, chairman of the Commission for Racial Equality, said the divisions exposed in the debate that his dominated British media for more than two weeks risked sparking “fire” on the streets.

He said the friction between communities risked becoming “the trigger for the grim spiral that produced riots in the north of England five years ago. Only this time the conflict could be much worse”.

“All the recent evidence shows that we are, as a society, becoming more socially polarised by race and faith,” Phillips wrote in The Sunday Times newspaper.

“The only place where this may not be true is in our schools and the main reason is that in many of our cities things cannot get any worse.”

He called for a “civilised” debate on race.

Britain needs not a “civilised” debate or a decision as to whether they wish to cede British society and culture to the Muslims.

France is already witnessing a “permanent infitada” with daily attacks on police and car burnings.

Is this what Britain wishes?

Does the United Kingdom desire to become a “COLONY” of the Islamic Sharia state?

Stay tuned as the Britiish Islamification continues…….

Jack Straw MP Watch: Rushdie – “Veils – A Way to Take Power From Women”

AP: Rushdie: Veils take power from women

Prime Minister Tony Blair and author Salman Rushdie praised a British official on Tuesday for raising the difficult issue of whether Muslim women visiting his office should remove their veils.

The comment by Jack Straw, a former foreign secretary who now is leader of the House of Commons, has plunged Britain into a debate over Islamic integration.

“It’s important these issues are raised and discussed, and I think it’s perfectly sensible if you raise it in a measured and considered way, which he did,” Blair said of Straw during an interview with British Broadcasting Corp. television outside his office. “I think we can have these discussions without people becoming hysterical either way about it.”

So Tony Blair and most folks in Europe would think – a discussion. But, the English-living Muslims think otherwise.

Rushdie, whose book “The Satanic Verses,” once led to death threats against him by Islamic clerics, told BBC radio that Straw “was expressing an important opinion, which is that veils suck, which they do. I think the veil is a way of taking power away from women.”

Straw said in a newspaper column published Thursday that he believes the veils favored by some Muslim women inhibit communication and are a sign of division in society. At his constituency office, Straw said he asks that veiled women reveal their faces, adding that the women have always complied, and a female assistant is always present.

On Friday, British media quoted Straw as going further, saying that he would prefer that Muslim women not wear veils at all. “I just find it uncomfortable if I’m trying to have a conversation with someone whose face I can’t see,” Straw told the BBC.

Many Muslims in Straw’s parliamentary district of Blackburn, in northwestern England, reacted with outrage.

Islamophobe is what Jack Straw is now being called. And Straw is being challenged by the RIGHT for the absurdity of the Labour Party’s immigration policies.

This is a discussion/argument about assimilation of cultures. But, do the Muslims living in England and who immigrated from the British colonies wish to assimilate into English life?

NOPE

Muslim women wearing veils out doing their shopping in Blackburn, England Friday Oct. 6, 2006. Britain’s former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw’s preference that devout Muslim women visiting his office remove their veils ignited a heated debate Friday about cultural isolation and tolerance in Britain. Straw is the Member of Parliament for the constituency of Blackburn.
The political correctness here is ridiculous and absurd.

Rushdie, who was forced into hiding for 10 years after Iranian cleric Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini served a fatwa on him over his book’s alleged criticism of the Prophet Muhammad, said the veil can be used to suppress women.

“Speaking as somebody with three sisters and a very largely female Muslim family, there’s not a single woman I know in my family or in my friends who would have accepted wearing a veil,” he said.

“I think the battle against the veil has been a long and continuing battle against the limitation of women, so in that sense I’m completely on (Straw’s) side.”

Indeed.

Flap is amazed that modern day women would tolerate the BS of the Veil. Whatever happened to the Feminist Movement and Womens’ RIGHTS? Where is the LEFT?

Dhimmitude

Flap guesses for Allah an exception is made to be treated not as an individual but as chattel.

Sort of RETRO.

Muhammad Caricature Watch: Teguh Santosa On Trial for Publishing Muhammad Cartoons

OhMyNews: Muhammad Cartoons Land Journalist in Court

In Jakarta, Indonesia, 31-year-old Teguh Santosa is on trial for publishing copies of Danish cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad on a newspaper Web site on Feb 2, 2006. The trial’s opening hearing began on Aug 30.

Teguh Santosa is the editor-in-chief of the online edition of the Rakyat Merdeka newspaper service. He may go to jail for five years if he is found guilty.

The 12 cartoons were first printed in Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in Oct 2005 and then reappeared in several other European papers. Santosa republished three of them.

The Moslem community around the world were furious and the publication of the cartoons sparked serious protests. In Indonesia, the largest Moslem community in the world, several Moslem organizations held rallies and urged the government to break off the diplomatic relationship between Indonesia and Denmark.

Denmark temporarily closed its embassy in Indonesia last February for the safety of its employees.

Remember the protests around the Islamic world in February of this year?

Does this help refresh your memory…..

islamcartoonsseptember2web

Indonesian Muslim protesters burn a Danish flag during a demonstration in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia, Monday, Feb. 6, 2006. Muslims rallied in several cities in the world’s most populous Muslim country Monday to show anger over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in Western newspapers. Writings on the posters say ‘Put Danish Prime Minister on international tribunal.’

As Michelle says the Dhimmi press of our western world may have forgotten about the Muhammad cartoons but the radical Islamicists have not.

According to Moslem belief, drawing or representing the Prophet Muhammad in any kind of image is totally blasphemous.

“The defendant’s publication of caricatures or illustrations of the Prophet Muhammad is a disgrace toward Islam,” prosecutors said.

After the session Teguh said that he had never, even for one moment, intended to disgrace Islam.

Teguh Santosa decided to upload the cartoons to show his readers what had caused so many problems. At the time the subject was under intense public debate.

Later after uploading the cartoons; Teguh’s office was visited by a few radical Moslem organizations. They urged Rakyat Merdeka to remove the images and apologize. The newspaper did so, but this was not enough for them so they filed this case into the court.

At the court session, Teguh received support from the Alliance of Independence Journalists (AJI) and Kontras — an Indonesian non-government organization — which held a protest against the trial and urged judges not to use criminal law instead of press law.

Heru Hendratmoko, chairperson of AJI, said that applying criminal law for this case was a crime against the press. He explained that the press are fully aware that there is no absolute freedom even for them. He urged government officials and communities to use press law if any disputes arise between the press and other parties.

He added that holding a trial for a press matter using criminal law was violating press freedom, which is guaranteed by the Indonesian Constitution.

So, what to do?

As members of the press and journalists, we have an obligation to protest this case on freedom of the press issues.

Kind of ironic that Teguh Santosa faces a prison sentence for publishing some comedic cartoons while New York Times publisher Bill Keller has refused to publish them in the New York Times but yet publishes national security secrets and yet he faces NO jeopardy, isn’t it?

You betcha

Teguh Santosa should be freed. This is a blatant violation of the freedom of the press doctrine.

Geofrrey at Beyond Wallacia has the details of a protest:

Publishers, editors, journalists and readers are urged to protest this case. Messages of support to Teguh Santosa and the Alliance of Independent Journalists may be emailed to sekretariatnya_aji@yahoo.com.

Flap URGES all of my readers and fellow bloggers to send e-mails in support.

Muhammad Caricature Watch: Tens of Thousands Protest Muhammad Caricatures in Pakistan and Turkey

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Culture, Muhammad Caricatures, Politics, Religion

Supporters of Islamic coalition Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal, or United Action Forum hold an effigy of the Danish Prime Minister during a rally to condemn the publication of cartoons depicting Islamic Prophet Muhammad printed by some Western newspapers, Sunday, March 5, 2006 in Karachi, Pakistan. About 50,000 people, many chanting ‘Hang those who insulted the prophet,’ rallied in a southern Pakistani city to protest Prophet Muhammad cartoons.

ASSociated Press: Denmark Reopens Embassy in Indonesia

Tens of thousands of people massed in Pakistan and Turkey on Sunday to protest cartoons of Islam’s Prophet, Muhammad, that have fired anger throughout the Muslim world. Denmark reopened its embassy in Indonesia on Monday, more than three weeks after hard-line Muslims stormed the building and it closed amid widespread protests over the caricatures, which were first published in a Danish newspaper.

About 50,000 people, many chanting “Hang those who insulted the prophet,” rallied Sunday in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi. The protesters burned the Danish flag, hit an effigy of President Bush with a stick and chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Musharraf.” Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf welcomed Bush to Pakistan on Saturday.

Hundreds of policemen in riot gear lined the central Karachi road where the rally was held. There was no violence.

Women supporters of Islamic coalition Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal, or United Action Forum take part in a rally to condemn the publication of cartoons depicting Islamic Prophet Muhammad printed by some Western newspapers, Sunday, March 5, 2006 in Karachi, Pakistan. About 50,000 people, many chanting ‘Hang those who insulted the prophet,’ rallied in a southern Pakistani city to protest Prophet Muhammad cartoons. The headbands read: ‘God is great.’

Ahhhhh the Taliban and Al Qaeda apologists/supporters are up to turning out the crowds again. But, the Pakistani government has threatened a crack down so there is NO violence.

The Mullahs must stir up the masses to keep them in line. Can the Pakistanis and Turks not see that the Islamic Clerics are trying to “CONTROL” them?

Pakistan’s opposition leader and anti-U.S. cleric Maulana Fazlur Rahman addresses his supporters at a rally to condemn the publication of cartoons depicting Islamic Prophet Muhammad printed by some Western newspapers, Sunday, March 5, 2006 in Karachi, Pakistan.

In Pakistan, the protest was organized by a coalition of radical Islamic groups opposed to Musharraf and the United States. The alliance, Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal, or United Action Forum, has organized a series of demonstrations against the cartoons, which were reprinted in several other European countries.

Some cartoon protests in Pakistan have turned deadly and at least five people died in two Pakistani cities in rioting last month.

Radical Islamists in Pakistan oppose Musharraf for his cooperation with the United States in the war on terrorism.

“Both Musharraf and his master Bush are killers of Muslims,” said Maulana Fazlur Rahman, parliamentary opposition leader and a senior figure in the religious alliance.

So, the protests ARE political not religious. The protests over the Muhammad Caricatures are a SHAM.

DUH…….

Stay tuned…….
