Our politicians cover up for Islam.
Check, for instance, how the Turnbull Government first told us Sheik Shady Al-Suleiman was a moderate preacher who represented an “important resetting point”, but now claims he’s just some lone extremist who should not “define the views of all 500,000 Muslims”.
Sheikh Shady was last December promoted by Turnbull’s then Assistant Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, as a moderate we should listen to:
(Concetta Fierravanti-Wells is an utterly corrupt shill for Islam. She is stuffed with falsehood and petrodollars. She also stabbed Tony Abbott in the back).
Simplistic calls for “revolution”, “change” or “reform” [of Islam] fail to take into account these complexities, especially the lack of hierarchy and authority. A more realistic and achievable approach lies in ensuring imans preach a more modern and moderate interpretation of the Koran.
While some may feel a public flogging of the Grand Mufti, Ibrahim Abu Mohamed, may have served their own political ends, he does not represent or speak for all Muslims in Australia. He is elected by the Australian National Imams Council, which brings together about 200 largely Sunni imams. The election of Shady Alsuleiman, our first Australian-born imam as ANIC’s president is an important resetting point.
Sheikh Shady is an “important resetting point”?
In fact, his sermons, as recorded in his on-line videos, vilify Jews, call on God to help “destroy the enemies of Islam”, declare the punishment for adulterers “is stoning to death”, damn Christmas parties as “worship of Satan” and accuse gays of “spreading all these diseases” through “evil actions that bring evil outcomes to our society”.
And now that this has been reported, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull how tells us Sheik Shady is just some lone and unrepresentative voice:
It is also wrong to seek to define the views of all 500,000 Muslims because of the opinions expressed by one person, by one cleric.
In fact, Shady is the elected president of the Australian National Imams Council. I suspect he knows Islam and our Muslim community better than does Turnbull.
It is idiotic to claim these views are only held by sheikh Shady. These views reflect mainstream Islam, basic Islam 101. This is what Islam is. What part of that is it you don’t understand?
