Yusuf rubs it

* Islamo-shyster Yusuf Irfan describes himself as ‘illustrious and sensible’ and  -sort of- apologizes for the turds he constantly deposits on the doorsteps of people he doesn’t like hates:

 Irfan Yusuf unreservedly apologises: 

An opinion article published in The Canberra Times by Irfan Yusuf on August 18, ‘’Justice the remedy required to help Bosnia heal’’, cited the US analyst Daniel Pipes as predicting that Europe’s next Holocaust victims would be Muslim migrants and it alleged that Mr Pipes suggested Muslims thoroughly deserved such slaughter. The Canberra Times and Irfan Yusuf accept that Mr Pipes never predicted nor has he ever endorsed a Holocaust of European Muslims, and they unreservedly apologise to him for the errors. 

Further on those “errors” here. Readers will recall Irfan’s impressive history of “errors”.

         Irfan Yusuf Apologizes to Daniel Pipes

PHILADELPHIA – Irfan Yusuf and the Canberra Times have issued an apology to Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, concerning a defamatory article written by Yusuf.

* “Muslim Weekly” Apologizes to Daniel Pipes for Tariq Ramadan defamation

* Canadian Islamic Congress apologizes to Daniel Pipes “without reservation”

On August 18, 2008, the Canberra Times, an Australian newspaper, published Yusuf’s “Justice the remedy required to help Bosnia heal.” In it, Yusuf mentioned a speech Mr. Pipes delivered to a dinner hosted by Quadrant magazine earlier this year which was subsequently published as “Europe or Eurabia?” in the Australiannewspaper. Yusuf incorrectly stated that in his speech, Mr. Pipes had

predicted Europe’s next Holocaust victims would be Muslim migrants. Frighteningly, Pipes suggested that Muslims thoroughly deserved such slaughter.

Upon receipt of Mr. Pipes’s protest against this sickening misrepresentation, Irfan Yusuf and the Canberra Times agreed to issue a public correction, retraction, and apology, which appeared in the newspaper’s print and online editions:

The Canberra Times and Irfan Yusuf accept that Mr Pipes never predicted nor has he ever endorsed a Holocaust of European Muslims, and they unreservedly apologise to him for the errors.

Freelance journalist Jeremy Lott commented sarcastically on this, what he called “soon-to-be-a-classic” apology:

So sorry about accusing you of wanting a second Holocaust, Mr. Pipes. It was an innocent mistake. We hope you understand.

In a more serious vein, Mr. Pipes responded that “Irfan Yusuf has a history of writing inaccurately about me, something I have already noted and corrected. His having embarrassed the Canberra Times should send a signal to responsible media everywhere to decline his tendentious writings.”

Brooke Goldstein, head of the MEF’s Legal Project, added that “It is unacceptable for a newspaper to publish defamatory lies about Dr. Pipes. It is encouraging, however, that the Canberra Times and Irfan Yusuf have acknowledged their error.”

  1. The man has quite an imagination.
    The “moral equivalence” line is becoming boring. We already know it’s rubbish.
    Somehow I doubt he rally meant to apologise.

  2. And this man aims to be a congressman in one of the most developed nations in the civilization history? He is a liar- check in his Web Site some testimonials- not mine, intimidates others when exposing his “law” Degree.Only the G-d of the bible knows in what circumstance he got that, maybe by merit, maybe by blackmailing teachers, maybe by using Islamist money support, as I said, only the G-d of the Bible knows.
    This man looks sick from bottom top. He seems to play victim when feeling as losing.
    He aims to have all his trash out of the Internet- those who criticize him, to look cool to infidels, while looking hot to islamists supporters, to finally get a place in the Australian Politics- in my understanding- IF I’m not mistaken.
    It is deplorable how newspapers that represent such developed nations (Australia and NZ), accept to have him as a writer- currently –HE may change in the future.
    I guess these nations are “developed” as a myth, not as real.
    He abuses in his power, intimidates, oppresses, make mockery of others, spread his stupid humor all over the Web- funny only to his kind and below, not others, plays identification with native Australian, but when someone starts analysis him seriously, under a microscope, he oppresses, threatens- using and abusing of his position as a lawyer – making others feel smashed as a result.
    The Threat- in my understanding and view- comes implicitly and subliminally, AGAIN in my understanding. Again, can you imagine this man on power- just in case I’m right? But, perhaps I’m wrong, as I said: only G-d of the bible (The only G-d in the Universe) knows.
    Again perhaps I’m wrong, but can you imagine this man in power in Australia? What misery to the people he will eventually bring- due to his history? As common human knowledge says, the best prediction to the future is ones past and present.
    He belongs to a political party, as I was informed, right? Can somebody confirm me this information?
    Another sign of his oppression, as I understand is that only he can have any opinion about others. Not a single soul can express what he/she thinks about him….Well, in my understanding, only a person that thinks belonging to any superior kind, does that.
    That’s the way I feel: “…I (Irfan) speak…You shut up- unless you come to eulogy me….If you do not shut up- I issue my personal fatwa against you- at a taste of the western manner (I’m a lawyer and I’ll smash you)”….
    That’s the idea I have about Irfan Yusuf- from Australia (there are innocent Irfan Yusuf in the blogosphere).
    Again, perhaps, I’m wrong, b/c only the G-d of the Bible knows the truth- who am I my G-d, and I hope I’m wrong, and I have this modesty, b/c I know all creatures are equals under the eyes of the G-d of the Bible- unfortunately, Islamists abiders (I’m still in doubt Irfan is one of them or not- the abiders)- looks to think differently.
