Mohammedan clerics at home and abroad are making headlines for their comical antics, unpredictable outbursts and vicious Jew-hating madness.
Tim Blair, The Daily Telegraph:
Here’s a brief compilation of imams gone wild during the past couple of weeks. They’ve been busy.
A visiting Islamic scholar is heading back to Pakistan after a surfaced of him preaching that the world will not see peace until ‘all Jews are wiped out’.
Muhammad Raza Saqib Mustafai, who has already addressed congregations in Blacktown and Liverpool, was to continue his tour in Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.
But when the video, titled “Jews are the enemies of Islam and the real peace” and shot in 2012, came to light, the remaining engagements were cancelled, Fairfax reports.
In the video, Mustafai says peace will be restored to the world once all Jews had been killed and removed from the planet.
“And when the last Jew will be killed from this world, then peace would be established in the world – so much so that snakes would roam among people but would not bite,” he says, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
A controversial Sydney Imam has had a shoe thrown at him during a live interview on Egyptian television after suggesting Muslim women weren’t required to wear the burka.
Dr Mostafa Rashid suggested the wearing of the burka was a cultural tradition rather than a religious duty, infuriating fellow guest, Egyptian lawyer Nabih al-Wahsh, who removed his shoe and began hitting the Australian with it …
“You said you were the Mufti of Australia and a scholar in Sydney, but there’s not even a mosque in Sydney,” Mr Al-Wahsh said to Mr Rashid.
Jordanian writer Nahed Hattar was shot dead by a suspected Islamist gunman today Sunday, September 25th, outside the courtroom where he was due to stand trial for insulting Islam by sharing a cartoon on Facebook.
The gunman was arrested at the scene has been identified as Riyad Ismail Abdullah, a 49-year-old imam who recently returned from making the Hajj pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.
An imam who raped a young boy was protected by mosque elders who banished him abroad only for him to secretly return to the UK.
Noor Walile, 38, was given a six year jail term after he raped the boy in a toilet in between a lesson he was giving at Rugby Mosque, Warwickshire.
When confronted about the attack after the terrified child told his parents he said: ‘The devil made me do it’.
Another devil was involved in India:
Police have announced a cash reward of Rs 5,000 for information on the absconding imam of Bijnor’s Jama Masjid, who has been charged with raping a woman on the pretext of driving out the devil inside her.
An imam is to stand trial accused of attacking a seven-year-old boy during an Arabic lesson at a mosque.
Hafiz Rizvi, a cleric at the Masjid Tajdar-e-Madina Mosque in Dundee, was arrested over the incident earlier this year.
A 40-year-old Muslim cleric, Alfa Saheed Gbadamosi, has been arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court sitting in Lagos State for allegedly beating up a Pastor, Emmanuel Ugbo, and also threatening to pour acid on the victim as well as destroying his church property.
And in the US:
A Muslim cleric in Maryland, who has openly endorsed the Islamic State terror group and funded at least one Muslim convert who was arrested for buying illegal explosives, has not been charged or arrested because, according to authorities, he hasn’t broken any laws.
Suleiman Anwar Bengharsa, an imam at mosques in Annapolis and outside Baltimore who also serves as a prison chaplain, has posted gruesome videos showing Islamic State fighters, also known as ISIS, ISIL or Daesh, beheading and burning alive their enemies and praised terrorist attacks overseas, The New York Times reports.
They’re a colourful bunch, your imams. Perhaps they warrant further close attention.
Our refugee program has put Australians in danger.
Three men were armed with knives and threatened staff members at the registers, demanding cash…
All of the offenders had their identity disguised, however witnesses have described them as dark skinned and in their 20s.
Who let them in? The Chaouk example
Yet again we must ask: who let them in? Who thought letting in these parents from Libya would be good for Australia?

BORN in Tripoli, Macchour Chaouk migrated from Lebanon in 1969, working at a tyre factory in Sydney’s west.
He returned to Lebanon to marry Fatma, and then the couple settled in Brooklyn, in Melbourne’s west, in 1974…
For a time, Macchour Chaouk worked in a wool store in Sunshine and then a fruit shop, but he was never out of trouble for long.
In 1975, Macchour Chaouk was charged with his first offence — assault with a weapon after he beat another man with metal bars at a factory.
In 1983 he was convicted of trafficking heroin, and two years later was charged with assaulting police.
And his crimes were not just restricted to Victoria. In 1984 he was charged with assault and burglary by NSW police.
In 1985 he was incapacitated by two motor accidents, and has not worked since….
Well, not legally, that is. When it came to importing heroin he was a work-horse. And he managed to produce a hell of a family:
FATHER: MACCHOUR CHAOUK
Migrated to Australia in 1969. Did not work after being injured in a traffic accident in 1985. Shot dead in Brooklyn August 13, 2010.
MOTHER: FATMA CHAOUK
Migrated in 1974 and produced six children
Sued police following the raid on the family home
SON: MOHAMED CHAOUK
Shot dead after confronting police with a sword during the 2005 raid
SON: ALI CHAOUK
On remand facing charges
SON: OMAR CHAOUK
Family’s youngest son who was arrested last month and claims he had a gun held to his head as a 13-year-old during the 2005 raid
COUSIN: AHMED HABLAS
Charged with the murder last year of Mohammed Haddara in Altona North
Why wasn’t Chaouk Snr. sent straight back to Lebanon at his first offence? At his second? At his third?
And what is it with Lebanon?
