* But why? Is there no law enforcement anymore in Australia? Or is Mick Keelty, the police chief of NSW just unwilling or unable to take Hilali down?
Now he can relax and go back to saying crazy stuff.
“Hilali cleared of charity terror funds allegation,” from AAP
DISASTER-prone Sheik Taj al-Din al-Hilali has been cleared of claims he diverted charitable funds to the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah.
The controversial sheik has been told by the Australian Federal Police that he has no case to answer.
The Lebanese Muslim Association was told in writing on Tuesday there was no evidence to support the claim that the sheik had diverted $16,000 in donations from Australian Muslims to a radio station with links to Hezbollah.
“The AFP assessment has not identified any evidence to support an investigation of persons for terrorist financing offences,” AFP spokesman Warren Gray wrote.
* Comment from Hugh Fitzgerald from Jihad watch:
This al-Hilali case, which stops long before a trial, is another sort of injustice. Not enough evidence, you say? Don’t be absurd. Read what this Al-Hilali has said, has written. Any and all means should be found to remove him from Australian society. The countries of the West, and of the non-Western Infidel world, have to figure out what they need to do, what needs to be changed, in order to protect themselves against an unprecedented threat, a threat for which their criminal justice systems, from investigative powers to the knowledge possessed by the police, members of other security services (domestic and foreign), judges (who should be chosen, as jury members should be chosen, only from those who know something, even a good deal, about Islam — and I don’t mean by reading armstrongs and espositos and assorted Mesanostrans) are, at this point, simply inadequate.
The Law Reviews should be full of such articles: the inadequacies of our own systems, created by people who, brilliant as they may have been (think of the Framers), were rational, Western men, well-read children of the Enlightenment, some more and some less believers in a bengin faith, who could scarcely have imagined the presence, or menace, of Islam all over the this country and the Lands of the Infidels, all the way to Australia.
