Mufti: It's Bush's Fault Women Are Meat
Three weeks after giving a hot-headed, intolerant, mysogynistic Ramadan "sermon" in which he refered to Western women as "meat" fit for "eating" (raping), Sheikh Taj El-Din Hamid Hilaly (left), the Mufti of Australia's biggest mosque in Sydney, blithely blamed George Bush for the hot water his comments have put him in.
Australians of non-Muslim persuasion are understandably a bit miffed at the Mufti's muff. And the fact that he doesn't even see it as a muff miffs them more. Here's the original "teaching" in which he was addressing the dressing habits of non-habit-wearing women:
"If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat? The uncovered meat is the problem."So, West, drop your ways and adopt our ways and cover your women head to foot in demeaning hijabs and burkhas, as if they are mere embarassments you'd rather not see. And if they don't cover up and get raped, who's fault is it but the woman's? There's an enlighted view for you!
The statement, which follows on an earlier Hilaly rant in which he praised the 9/11 terrorists and called their act a work of God, has brought criticism from the public, the prime minister and more moderate Muslims. Is that Hilaly's problem? No! It's George Bush's.
Asked if he would resign his post -- from which he's temporarily suspended -- Hilaly said:
"After we clean the world of the White House first."Those who think we can appease Muslims best think again. The only appeasement is accepting their unacceptable faith and practices.
Christianity teaches women should dress modestly -- a teaching that is shamefully ignored at most contemporary Christian churches -- but it understands the difference between "modesty" and "using clothes as a weapon of abuse." Islam does not. Moderate Muslim women who dress in even modest Western clothes are beaten, yelled at, shamed.
And it's W's fault. Why? Simply because he acknowledges that he leads a Christian nation, a nation that will defend itself against people like Hilaly, who wish us harm.
The Aussies, unfortunately, have granted citizenship to Hilaly, so they can't deport him. Let that be a lesson to them. Citizenship should be reserved for those who want to accept the nation they hope to become a citizen of, and should be revocable when new citizens begin advocating violence against their adopted nation.
That's a lesson we'd best learn here, too.
