Turnbull’s final insult

LOOK WHO CAME TO DINNER

Tim Blair

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull hosts a typical Islamic peacemaker:

An Islamic preacher – who once called AIDS a divine punishment for gays and for God to “prepare us for jihad” – dined with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at Kirribilli House tonight.

Sheik Shady Al-Suleiman, the national president of the Australian National Imams Council, has said in online videos that females will be “hung by the breasts in hell” and that women should not even look at men.

“So then I said, ‘Let’s invite that jihad-preparing, breast-hanging guy.’ And they did!”

He was among a group of religious leaders and prominent Islamic Australians hosted by the PM at an Iftar dinner to mark the holy month of Ramadan at Kirribilli House.

The Australian-born Sheik Shady has previously called on God to help “destroy the enemies of Islam” and for adulterers to be stoned to death …

Mr Turnbull told the gathering of about 60 people, the first of its kind hosted by a Prime Minister, to unite against extremism.

At which point everybody rose up and threw Sheik Shady out on the street. Note that no alcohol was served at the dinner, presumably due to the mandatory 40-lash penalty. Further on this from Andrew Bolt.

Below the fold, Andrew Bolt takes a closer look at the ‘breast-hanging’ sheik.

Malcolm Turnbull panders to the Muslim community by holding a Ramadan dinner at which he poses with the most media-friendly – but unrepresentative – Muslims he can find:

Mr Turnbull broke bread with religious leaders and prominent Islamic Australians at an Iftar dinner to mark the holy month of Ramadan at Kirribilli House on Thursday night… He’s the first Prime Minister ever to host such an event…

On his right side:

… broadcasting power couple The Project host Waleed Aly and wife Susan Carland …

And on Turnbull’s left:

… Islamic youth advocate Yassmin Abdel-Magied …

Note: Turnbull does not sit next to any Muslim religious leader at a dinner to mark a religious event. He does not sit next to a Muslim who actually represents – officially – other Muslims in an elected capacity.

He does not sit next to Australia’s Grand Mufti, who said the Islamist slaughter in Paris was the fault of the West.

He does not sit next to former Mufti Sheikh Hilali, who said suicide bombers were “heroes” and praised the September 11 terror attacks as ”God’s work against oppressors”.

He does not sit next to another former Grand Mufti, Sheikh Fehmi, who praises the Hezbollah terrorist group.

He does not sit next to Sheik Wahwah, head of Hizb ut Tahrir in Australia, who threatens Jews with ”an eye for any eye, blood for blood”, claiming that where Jews live ”corruption abounds”.

He does not sit next to Sheikh Omran, emir of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah school of Islamic thought, who once described al Qaeda head Osama bin Laden as “a good man in some ways, and not in other ways” and also said ”I dispute any evil action linked to bin Laden”.

No, he sits next to a white convert who is a university lecturer and wife of a TV star and Logie winner, and to a young female engineer who is a Q&A favorite.

And not a burqa in sight.

This seating arrangement is designed not to present Islam as it really is in Australia but as Turnbull would like us to believe. And it is designed above all to add lustre to Turnbull himself.

UPDATE

I should apologise to Turnbull. He did invite some clerics to sit at the back, leading to the inevitable social awkwardness:

The Australian-born Sheik Shady has previously called on God to help “destroy the enemies of Islam” and for adulterers to be stoned to death …

The sheikh has interesting views on the likes of Turnbull, too. The “enemies of Islam” rule and it’s time Muslims formed their own political party:

UPDATE

Why don’t gay groups and the Greens confront homophobia at this religious source?

A prominent Islamic psychologist who this week voiced solidarity with LGBTI Muslims following the Orlando nightclub massacre has previously denounced homosexuality as “evil” and a “social dilemma”, saying sexual orientation could be changed through intensive psychotherapy.

Hanan Dover, who runs eight psychology practices in Sydney’s west, has also criticised secular colleagues who have urged Islam to become progressive and accept homosexual behaviour because they feel sorry for Muslim ­patients struggling with their ­feelings.

“If Allah loves homosexuals, he will also love thieves, murderers, liars, hypocrites, criminals,” Ms Dover told a public forum held at the University of Western Sydney in 2002.

“Did Allah make a mistake and say that homosexuality is (a sin) for about 1400 years and when humans are ready, they can start disobeying my laws … and I will start accepting all evils? C’mon!”…

  1. Its hard to top this performance by Turnbull in the week of another monstrous outrage by a jihadist seeking redemption.
    Not 100% sure, but i doubt i have ever felt more ashamed of a sitting Australian PM. After Gillard’s misogyny speech that’s a dubious distinction.
    If possible , this Kirribilli smarmball could have at least worn a rainbow sash or included some prominent Politicians of the same colourful persuasion- just to ram home his insult to the nation.
    My my Turnbull , if virtue signalling was an Olympic sport you have just set a world record!

  2. Sheik “Shady”, by their names shall they be known, or was his name “situation”? How may times did he repeat this word in an unintelligible address? Our politicians are obviously quoting their responses from the Obama/Merkel/Cameron handbook. When will we see another bogus interfaith gathering of elites hosted by our Islamic masters? Women to be “hung from their breasts in hell” should be countered by men to be “hung from their penises in hell” what a chandelerium! Silence reigned.
