A couple of stories that raise important issues about our friends and “allies” in the “Religion of Peace”:
* So Sheikh Taj Aldin Al-Hilali “repudiated” his comments comparing women without hijabs to “uncovered meat” and blaming them for rape. He’s Australia’s top Islamic cleric, the Mufti of Australia.
The question is: Do you believe him? I don’t. Just as I don’t believe Mel Gibson (though his comments are hardly as important–he’s not a respected, top religious leader). If this were a majority Muslim world–if Australia were a majority Muslim country (as it is fast becoming)–would he have repudiated his words? Of course, not. And most so-called “moderate” Islamic groups here in the U.S. didn’t seem to exercised about his comments, either.
Remember, David Duke repudiated his words once, too (and he isn’t even a member of the religion of taqiyyah). And he was almost believable. He ran and won a seat in the Louisiana Legislature. When he ran for Congress, despite opposition by Ronald Reagan and others (who urged a vote for the Democrat instead), he claimed he’d changed, that he’d renounced his anti-Semitic, racist, Klan past. But it was all a PR stunt. After he lost, he eventually went back to his true colors. And so will Sheikh Al-Hilali.
Don’t believe the hype. And read how his buddy, Abduljalil Sajid, the Mufti of Britain (their top Islamic cleric) tries to explain and excuse his comments away.
* Yesterday and today, Pakistani religious leaders held mass protests against the bombing of a Madrassah (Islamic religious school) in Chingal, which was actually a front for an Al-Qaeda training camp. 20,000 protesters chanted, “Death to Musharraf! Death to Bush!”
Among the dead was Sheikh Liaquat Hussain, tight with Al-Qaeda mastermind Ayman Al-Zawahiri. The school, headed by Hussain, was warned by the Pakistani government that it had better stop training terrorists, but the school refused.
The story is important because it demonstrates for the gazillionth time that, but for the slimy and shaky Musharraf (who was not elected and could be deposed at any time), Pakistan is an extremist Muslim nation. They care more about terrorists and their “right” to continue to train for Al-Qaeda terrorist operations than they do for the innocent lives of Westerners and even fellow Muslims.
That’s the way the rest of the Muslim world already is or is headed. “Religion of Peace”? No way. Pakistan an ally? Maybe the guy who is temporarily and precariously at the top is marginally an ally. As for the whole rest of his country, they are the enemy.
