Take that, Turnbull. Your iftar dinner brings out the best in these people, who are religiously obliged to put us on the right path.
Mufti defies Malcolm Turnbull on anti-gay speech
Australia’s Grand Mufti has defended Islam against critics of the religion’s “longstanding” position on homosexuality, repudiating Malcolm Turnbull’s condemnation of anti-gay speech and warning that any attempt to call out its teachings could lead to radicalisation.
Criticism of Islam makes Muslims so angry that they are forced to become terrorists. What is it you don’t understand about that, kafirs?
In a two-page defence of Australian National Imams Council president Shady Alsuleiman, his colleague Ibrahim Abu Mohammed said critics were “igniting fires, dividing our society and spreading hatred” and “intellectually terrorising” some Muslims.
The Grand Mufti’s defence centres on Sheik Shady but declines to mention two other members of the ANIC executive, one of whom confirmed with The Australian that homosexuality was punishable by death under sharia after the “proper process” and another who said he was certain it attracted a punishment but would “have to check” the severity.
Islam is Islam and that’s it, said Taiyyip Erdogan.
“We cannot describe those who disagree with homosexuality, or simply communicate a religious ruling that one firmly believes in, that such a person does not respect or accept others,” Dr Mohammed said. “We cannot claim that he spreads hatred in our society. Despite Islam’s longstanding position on homosexuality, which no person can ever change, no matter who they are, I would like to state the following. That which Sheik Shady has said regarding homosexuality is simply a conveyance of a religious fact which is known to every practising person in the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths.”
Yes, you filthy kafirs: Islam is just upholding the law that the Jews and the Christians are supposed to follow. They have gone astray and it is the Muslims job to correct them. Or else….
Mr Turnbull has used his prime ministership as a bridge-building exercise with the Islamic community, attempting to repair relations with its leaders after they were strained during Tony Abbott’s leadership.
Translation: the misguided Turncoat tried cocksuckery and he failed. Besides,
Muslim Brotherhood theorist Sayyid Qutb explained what “building bridges” means:
“The chasm between Islam and Jahiliyyah [the society of unbelievers] is great, and a bridge is not to be built across it so that the people on the two sides may mix with each other, but only so that the people of Jahiliyyah may come over to Islam.”
Mr Turnbull said it was an “oversight” that Sheik Shady was on the invitation list for an iftar dinner at Kirribilli House last month, following the airing of his homophobic comments.
Its idiotic to blame one headbanger for the views that the whole umma holds dearly. The whole mob believes in the same thing!
“Views like this are wrong, unacceptable and I condemn them,” Mr Turnbull said at the time. “I condemn, I deplore homophobia wherever it is to be found.”
The mufti’s comments on the eve of the election are a rejection of the Turnbull position — and mainstream Australia — and show the (Muslim) leadership is not willing to bend on modern values.
Homosexuality is punishable by death in 10 Muslim-majority countries and illegal in many others, including Egypt where Dr Mohammed was born and where gay men have been sentenced to 17 years’ prison with hard labour. Dr Mohammed did not respond to a request for comment on whether he too believed homosexuality attracted the death penalty under sharia.
He said in his rebuttal that comments on Sheik Shady had “strengthened terrorist groups and movements”.
Turnbulls rejection of Sheik Shady’s views causes Muslims to resort to terrorism to set things straight.
“It could also have strengthened ISIL and those who reflect its ideology. Do such media outlets realise they are igniting fires, dividing our society and spreading hatred?
The media who blames Islam for terrorism must be terrorised. Got it.
“Using their arrogant methods, some media outlets have intellectually terrorised these people to the point of describing some Muslims ‘as a cancer that spreads evil’.”
I do not recall any media outlet describing Islam as “a cancer that spreads evil”, but it would be nice if we had a media that did tell the truth.
While Dr Mohammed claimed it was “terrorism” to say Islam spread evil, his colleague Sheik Shady has said similar things about gay people and adulterers.
I love it.
“You know, let’s not deny the fact, don’t call it the name of freedom, you know, don’t talk about freedom,” Sheik Shady in a lecture broadcast online in 2010. “This is the freedom of action and we could do whatever we want, it doesn’t mean the freedom of action … destroy a nation. These are evil actions, that bring upon evil outcomes to our society.”
Islam destroys any nation. That’s a fact.
Dr Mohammed, elected to the top-ranking Sunni Islamic scholar position of Grand Mufti in 2011, has been criticised by his community as being too “bookish” and had running battles with former prime minister Mr Abbott over whether Islam needed a “reformation” and questions on whether the religion had a problem with violent extremists.
Islam is “perfect”. It cannot be reformed.
After the Paris terror attacks last year, the Grand Mufti implored people to look at the “causative factors” of the assault, such as Islamophobia and military intervention. The imams council issued a clarification to say there was never any justification for terror.
Resistance to Islam causes terrorism. Don’t you know that by now, you dumb kafir?
Mr Turnbull refused to respond to questions about whether the federal government would or could continue to have a relationship with the national imams council, which advises government on many issues, including national security.
The national imams council needs to be arrested and shipped out and back to the desert of their choice. They should NEVER be given a seat on any governments table let alone be allowed to advise the gov’t on any matters, especially not on national security.
A spokesman referred The Australian to the “extensive” comments on homophobia the Prime Minister made after the iftar dinner.
