Sheik Hilali urged the Islamic world to unite behind Iran

* Surprise, surprise! Are the Shiites no longer ‘rafidite dogs’ to the ‘superior’ Sunni’s?


Words could be used to recruit extremists, imam warns

AUSTRALIA’S most senior Islamic cleric, Sheik Taj al-Din al-Hilali, called on the Muslim world to unite behind the radical Iranian regime and to serve in its “trenches” in comments published during a visit to Tehran last weekend.

As Iran was involved in a standoff with Western powers over the detention of 15 British naval personnel seized after they were accused of trespassing in its waters last month, the Iranian media were using Sheik Hilali’s quotes in a propaganda drive.

The controversial Australian mufti was quoted as saying that the global Islamic nation would never “kneel” to its enemies.

In reports published in Iran on Saturday, Sheik Hilali was quoted as saying that Muslims needed to overcome their sectarian divisions that have led to much “bloodletting” in Iraq.

Taliban Behead Afghan Journalist

* While Al Bebeceera’s reporting jackass David Loyn lies in ambush ’embedded’ with the Taliban, praising their toughness and skill, officials announced today that a kidnapped Afghan reporter had his head hacked off by Loyn’s traveling compagnions:

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AFP) – Taliban militants on Sunday beheaded an Afghan reporter kidnapped last month with an Italian journalist, after the government refused to negotiate his release, a Taliban spokesman said.

“We killed Ajmal (Naqshbandi) today at 1505 (1135 GMT) because the government did not respond to our demands,” said Shohaabuddin Atal, spokesman for top Taliban military commander Mullah Dadullah. “He was beheaded.”

“They (the government) did not contact us,” he told AFP.

Atal said the journalist was beheaded in Helmand’s Hazar Joft district and the Taliban leaders would decide whether to return his body to his relatives.

Afghan private news agency Pajhwok reported that a spokesman for the Afghan intelligence services, Saeed Ansari, had confirmed the execution. But there has been no independent verification.

Another Taliban spokesman had earlier said that the militants had set the deadline for Naqshbandi’s execution on Monday unless the government agreed to release more jailed insurgents.

“Monday is the last deadline. He (Naqshbandi) will be killed unless the government complies with our demands,” Taliban spokesman Yousuf Ahmadi told AFP by telephone.

When asked why he was killed on Sunday, Atal said: “Because the government did not contact us and we knew they wouldn’t care for him so we killed him today.”

One of Naqshbandi’s relatives said that the Taliban contacted them early Sunday.

“They called us and said we should pressurise the government. Their tone this morning was very nasty,” the desperate relative, who asked not to be named, said..

“We heard media reports that he has been killed. No Taliban has contacted us about his death directly,” he added.

The Taliban are waging a deadly insurgency that includes suicide attacks and kidnappings of foreign journalists and aid workers, and their local colleagues, after being ousted from power five years ago by US-led troops.

Naqshbandi was captured in southern Helmand province on March 4 with Italian journalist Daniele Mastrogiacomo, who was freed two weeks later in a controversial exchange for five Taliban prisoners. Their Afghan driver was beheaded before Mastrogiacomo’s release.

President Hamid Karzai said this week no more hostage deals with the Taliban would be made, saying the one he made to free Mastrogiacomo was an “extraordinary” situation.

He said the deal was made because Italy’s government — which has 1,800 troops in Afghanistan — could have collapsed.

La Repubblica newspaper, for which Naqshbandi worked as a interpreter, voiced “dismay” over the reported execution, which Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi also denounced.

“I learned with anguish the news of the murder of the interpreter that followed that of the (correspondent’s) driver,” he said. “We strongly condemn this absurd crime.”

US national security spokesman Gordon Johndroe said: “This barbaric killing reminds us of why the United States and NATO are in Afghanistan in the first place: To help the good people of that country defeat the Taliban extremists and their al-Qaeda allies.”

The Taliban are also holding two French nationals and three Afghan colleagues after abducting them on Tuesday in the southwestern province of Nimroz.

The province’s governor and police chief have said they were likely to have been moved to Helmand where Naqshbandi was killed. Helmand adjoins Nimroz.

Atal told AFP earlier Sunday that the Taliban would decide the fate of the French nationals once Naqshbandi’s case was over.

The rebels have not yet made any demand in return for the release of the French aid workers, who were working for the Terre d’Enfance (A World for Our Children).

The Taliban had its deadliest year in 2006 since its ousting in 2001 with hundreds of people killed, mostly militants but also local and foreign soldiers and civilians.

* Charles Johnson LGF comments: David Loyn probably doesn’t have to worry about meeting the same fate. With the adulatory reports he’s filing, his propaganda value is worth more to the Taliban than the joy they would take in slaughtering him.

Al Bebeceera: Riding with the Taliban

Another jackass journo from Al Bebeceera, David Loyn, is actually embedded with the Taliban, and is filing glowing reports on their progress as they attack and kill British troops: Traveling with the Taliban

There is no army on earth as mobile as the Taleban.

I remember it as their secret weapon when I travelled with them in the mid-1990s, as they swept aside rival mujahideen to take most of the country.

Piled into the back of open Toyota trucks, their vehicle of choice, and carrying no possessions other than their weapons, they can move nimbly.

The bare arid landscape of northern Helmand suits them well.

After one hair-raising race across the desert last week, patrolling the large area where they can move at will, they screamed to a stop at a river bank.

Hardy

It was sunset, and time to pray before breaking the Ramadan fast they had kept since sunrise.

Before praying, they washed in a dank-looking pool at the side of the almost-dry river bed.

Afghanistan has been in the grip of a severe drought for several years, but the lack of clean water does not seem to concern these hardy men.

_42235232_fighters.jpg

Taleban fighters appear both ferocious and fearless

They clean their teeth with sharpened sticks taken from trees, and sleep with only the thinnest shawls to cover them.

They have surprised the British by the ferocity of their fighting and their willingness to take casualties.

Their belief in the imminence of paradise means that few exhibit fear.

When we stopped for the night, they would break into groups to eat in different houses in a village.

They demand and get food and shelter from places where they stop, but it is impossible to say how enthusiastic the villagers really are.

* Impressed? Not.  The villagers are probably a lot less enthusiastic to feed the Taliban than this degenerated idiot would have us believe. But do they have a choice?  David Loyn, with his homo- erotic infatuation with  assassins and barbaric mass-murderers,  doesn’t care.

Guys like him are not only  useful idiots, but dangerous enemy agents. And this is supported by Al Bebeceera, by effeminate, ‘enlightened’ western elitists  who are befuddled with turbans and beards ….

Happy Easter

Mufti Update:

Trad scotches sheik sack report Article from AAP

AN Islamic group that claims to have sacked the mufti of Australia Sheik Taz al Din al Hilali does not have the authority to do so, spokesman for the Islamic Friendship Association Keysar Trad has said.

The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) has abolished the role of mufti and severed all ties with the sheik, Fairfax Newspapers report today.

AFIC President Ikebal Patel told Fairfax the organisation owned the title of mufti and had stopped paying Sheik Hilali’s salary.

But Mr Trad, president of the Islamic Friendship Association, said the AFIC did not have the authority to strip the mufti of his position.

“AFIC is not in a position to sack the mufti at all,” Mr Trad told Sky News from Lebanon today.

Mr Trad said AFIC gave Sheik Hilali the position of mufti back in 1989, but it had gone into administration last year.

He said the organisation was now simply was trying to show it remained relevant, since coming back on board in February.

“The president of this organisation is dealing with issues that are well beyond his authority,” he said.

“The imams board, which was formed as a result of a reference group recommendation, has now taken over the decisions about the position of mufti. That imams board has a large number of imams from all over Australia making a decision about this position,” said Mr Trad.

Mr Trad said Sheik Hilali told AFIC to stop paying him last year when the federation went into administration.

“Mid-way through last year he told the organisation to stop paying him. The organisation went into administration and they said they could no longer pay their employees. He said to them, ‘I don’t want to be paid for this position, I don’t need to be paid, I’m serving the community’,” Mr Trad said.

In February, AFIC said in a statement it had been under administration since September 2006 after the suspension of its executive committee.

The board was reformed on February 25, when new office bearers were elected.

Mr Trad said Sheik Hilali was currently attending a conference in Turkey and knew nothing of the controversy surrounding his position.

He told Sky News the sheik remained the person most qualified to hold the position of mufti in Australia, saying you would have to look all over the world to find a person with the same level of knowledge.

Catmeat Sheik Hilali Sacked, but not really…

Hilali sacking claims are ‘a gross exaggeration’

r133697_448375.jpg

Not so fast: You see, he is sacked except when he isn’t. He is ’embarrassing’- except when he isn’t. Because after all he is a ‘good’ Muslim, (one recent poster even called him ‘a man of God’) and like it or not, he will be with us for as long as he lives. Unless of course he goes to the slammer for hate-speeches, incitement and terrorist activities, or our timid government strips him of citizenship and sends him back to Egypt. Fat chance!

First there was this:

Sheik up as mufti axed and role is abolished

CONTROVERSIAL Muslim leader Sheik Taj el-Din al Hilaly has been sacked by the peak Islamic body and the role of mufti has been abolished.

* You can’t read anything these days in the MSM that’s not ‘controversial’- and it just makes you puke that a convicted terrorist and traitor like Muhammed Dawoud aka Hicks is an ‘alleged’ terrorist. There are clearly many among us who have lost the plot.

The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC), which employed the mufti for more than 15 years, has severed all ties with him.

* Sure, just like the bin Laden family. Take it with a grain of salt.

But the sheik has retaliated by registering the title of mufti for himself and has vowed to carry on speaking on behalf of the Muslim community – even though no organisation wants him to represent them.
* That’s even more BS because he has thousands behind him and they will rally ’round him at the drop of a turban..

===================
Sheikh Taj el-Din Al Hilali has not been sacked, the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils says. (File photo)AFP

The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils says speculation that the senior Muslim cleric, Sheikh Taj el-Din Al Hilali, has been sacked are a gross exaggeration.

Council president Ikebal Patel says no decision has been made on Sheikh Al Hilali’s future since the Australian National Imams Council met two weeks ago.

Mr Patel says Sheik Al Hilali has not been paid by the council for eight months, but he has not been sacked.

“He hasn’t been sacked and you know that is the wrong use of the word when you describe the mufti’s present position,” he said.

Mr Patel has asked for space for the community to work things out.

“The Australian Muslims through the Australian National Council of Imams should be given the time and also the respect to do its deliberation and decide as to what the process should be and who should be appointed as the mufti if at all there should be anyone in the position,” he said.

* Once again: For those who keep chewing the cud about ‘tiny minority of extremists’ and the old ‘can’t tar them all with one brush’ chestnut, a reminder that we are still looking for one, yes,- just ONE so-called ‘moderate Muslim’ who unequivocally distances him-or herself, from the mainstream Islam, which sounds like this asshole Pali-Mufti:
