The Sheik Hilaly Controversy..In Pictures

Australia’s Mufti Sheik Taj al-Din al-Hilaly makes some despicable comments.

“If you get a kilo of meat, and you don’t put it in the fridge or in the pot or in the kitchen but you leave it on a plate in the backyard, and then you have a fight with the neighbour because his cats eat the meat, your’e crazy.”If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park, or in the backyard, without a cover and the cats eat it, then whose fault will it be, the cats, or the uncovered meat’s? The uncovered meat is the disaster. If the meat was covered the cats wouldn’t roam around it. If the meat is inside the fridge, they won’t get it.

Isn’t that true, Mr Snookums?”

The next day, Hilaly responds to the criticism generated over his comments.

“Not representing Australian values? I am as Australian as halal vegemite. In fact, I am responsible for getting it off the banned list.”

But seeing this does not stem the tide of criticism, Hilaly changes tact…

“Ohhh, the pain, the pain.”

    Well, not only that, but all women are half of Satan’s soldiers. Let’s just say he got a not very ladylike response from me at my blog.

    And then, well, he just keeps on keeping on, from today Australian –

    Hilali blasts the US

    October 27, 2006

    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.,20867,20654232-601,00.html

    Though, maybe some good news, he having a rest and going to Mecca. I’m reading this as a ‘nice’ way of him retiring, not the way I would like it to happen, but better than him staying.
