Because Jihad is the ‘Pinnacle of Islam’ – Catmeat- Sheik Update:

Jihad (in Arabic, “struggle”) is the central duty of every Muslim. Jihad is the struggle within the soul, defending the faith from critics, supporting its growth and defense financially, even migrating to non-Muslim lands for the purpose of spreading Islam. But violent jihad is a constant of Islamic history. Many passages of the Qur’an and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad are used by jihad warriors today to justify their actions and gain new recruits. No major Muslim group has ever repudiated the doctrines of armed jihad. The theology of jihad, which denies unbelievers equality of human rights and dignity, is available today for anyone with the will and means to bring it to life.

Because the radicals are the ‘good Muslims’- the ‘moderates’ always take the backseat:

The ‘Catmeat-Sheik’ al Hilali is a nasty piece of work and many Muslims tell us that he ‘doesn’t speak for them’ or that he is ’embarrassing’- but should we believe them? Because when it comes to the crunch the radicals have the scriptures on their side. The overwhelming majority of Muslims supports the ‘real Islam’- not just some ‘diluted version, and not only in Lakemba. Catmeat Sheik Hilali is the man…

The jihad against infidels, Jews, ‘polytheists’ and ‘hypocrites’ must be fought by any available means, but when it comes to money, a good Muslim always does what’s best for the cause: If given a choice to give money to the needy or for the jihad, the jihad will always come first. Hilali and his followers know that. But now they are being accused of doing just that: How ’embarrassing!’
Just last month the Newcastle mosque was taken over by ‘radicals’– if we take a closer look we will quickly find that the Hilali’s are in control, just about everywhere. But who cares? As long as our politicians and our politically correct media keeps telling us that it is only ‘a tiny minority of extremists’ there is nothing to worry, is there?

Australia’s Lebanese Muslim Association is forced to issue an apology and pledge to repay Muslims whose donations to the Sheik’s “charity” were apparently handed over to terrorist supporters:

Pledge to repay Hilali’s donations

THE nation’s most powerful Islamic association has promised to repay more than $US10,000 ($13,000) in donations raised by Australian Muslims for Lebanese war victims that ended up being handed over in cash by Taj Din al-Hilali to a “suspect” radio station in Lebanon.
The Howard Government has also attacked Sheik Hilali, the mufti of Australia, for betraying the trust of Australian donors by dishing out money to supporters of Iraqi jihadists.

* Please note: ‘The Howard government’- does that mean the left has already sided with the opposite camp?

Lebanese Muslim Association president Tom Zreika said yesterday his organisation was prepared to pay back donors any money that Egyptian-born Sheik Hilali could not properly account for.

He said the LMA would launch an investigation into exactly how Sheik Hilali distributed the $70,000 raised by the organisation in conjunction with other Islamic bodies, following last year’s Israel-Hezbollah conflict in southern Lebanon.

“We will take all the necessary steps to bring to account any mishandling of funds in Lebanon and will further investigate the $US10,000 given to a suspect radio station,” Mr Zreika told The Australian, referring to the Islamic Tawhid radio station, which supports jihad in Iraq.
