Prime Minister John Howard says Islamic leaders are doing damage to their community by not taking decisive action against Sydney’s Sheikh Taj el-Din Al Hilali.
Meanwhile, the so-called moderate Muslim, Lebanese Muslim Association President Tom Zreika, had to go into hiding because of death-threats by Muslims after he called for reforms. Mr Zreika said he was threatened recently after saying, “I can’t tolerate this freak show”, following recent remarks by Sheikh Hilali.
The despicable catmeat mufti has been reinstated.
Despite everything, the Mufti clings on – at least for the next three months:
CONTROVERSIAL Islamic cleric Taj Din al-Hilali is likely to stand aside as the nation’s mufti within three months after being awarded a short “grace period” by Australia’s most powerful Muslim spiritual leaders.
A meeting of 50 clerics yesterday set up an executive committee of the Australian National Imams Council that will subsequently appoint a “fatwa group” to determine who will be the next mufti of Australia…
The Australian understands that the majority of the imams at yesterday’s meeting opposed Sheik Hilali continuing to speak on behalf of Muslim Australia, but were willing to keep him on until they had found a successor.
“The majority don’t want him there, but we basically kept him on to save him face without causing problems in the community,” a senior Muslim spiritual leader told The Australian yesterday.
Which proves once again that the ‘moderates’ haven’t got a leg to stand on: The radicals have the scriptures on their side, and they use them to spread the real Islam.
Just listen to this:
