Video: Aussie rape mufti defends rapists, rips Australia on Egyptian TV

It must be another “misunderstanding,” like with his comments about 9/11 or suicide bombers or the Holocaust or the “meat” we call women occasionally deserving what they get when they don’t cover up.

He’s got quite a knack for saying things he didn’t say.

Remember the last interview? That one was for Australian TV.

RAY MARTIN: … Do you feel Australian?

SHEIK ALHILALI: Of course, I love it. In my speeches all the time, love Australia or leave it…

RAY MARTIN: You said to me that you love Australia. It’s in your heart.

SHEIK ALHILALI: Of course. One hundred percent.

RAY MARTIN: Are you a Muslim first or Australian first?

SHEIK ALHILALI: I’m Muslim first everywhere. Muslim before any nationality. But I’m Australian Muslim. I’m Australian Muslim.

Here’s how an Australian Muslim sounds when the Australian kaffir aren’t around to hear him. Note the revisionist irredentism about who was there first, too. To paraphrase that liberal bumper sticker about the Middle East and oil, how did their people get on his land?

You’ll probably need to use IE to view the clip. Do so. It’s worth it. FYI, Andrew Bolt’s warning about “Cronulla times ten” is a reference to this.

Update: Australian Muslim Irfan Yusuf says Hilaly must go.

Hilaly was appointed to the position of mufti by the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC), an umbrella body representing the management bodies of a section of Australia’s mosques.

AFIC is currently managed by a court-appointed administrator whose term expires in a month or so. If the outcry from grassroots Muslims (especially women) to last year’s comments is anything to go by, the next AFIC administration can expect a tsunami of pressure from ordinary Muslims to sack Hilaly or declare his position redundant…

If AFIC is to be truly representative and responsible, it must act swiftly to remove Sheik Hilaly from his position. Having an elderly non-English speaking mufti representing a community of overwhelmingly young English-speakers is hardly a recipe for good community relations.

Update: You want assimilation, you got it. Via Phin of Agent Bedhead, behold … the burqini.

Throw another Imam on the barbie!

Un-frackin’-believable.

And what the hell is he doing in bed while being interviewed? Taking his cues from Brian Wilson?

Is the moratorium on the steak pic still in place?

Kid from Brooklyn on January 11, 2007 at 10:57 AM

Aw heck, atleast Austrialian media has the cajones to call this asshat out to other Australians. They call it “OUR way of life” and “OUR heritage” acknowledging their (the media’s) identity as Australians with the people they serve. American media would NEVER produce this story, or if they did, it would be completely apologetic to this guy.

rightallthetime on January 11, 2007 at 11:11 AM

Wow.

Kudos to the Australian media for being honest and forthwright in this segment. It’s nice to see people actually wanting to keep their way of life intact, and not bending over kissing peoples butts so they don’t upset them.

StephC on January 11, 2007 at 11:25 AM

So is this scum a naturalized citizen of Australia or can he be deported? Anyone know?

maintenanceman on January 11, 2007 at 12:08 PM

Eh, the burqini is old news Hasema’s been making them for a while now. They’re a Turkish business.

Iblis on January 11, 2007 at 12:22 PM

Australian MSM gets it. Unlike our MSM.

They shouldn’t let him back in their great country.

Aussies are great.
Islam is Hate.

If he finds Australia that bad, then he should stay in Saudia Arabia with the rest of his sand fleas.
There’s enough sand there to clean out of your shorts for life.

How long is it going to take for us to figure out that ALL Islamists are enemies to civilization…not because WE say so, but because THEY say so. Or at least among themselves. It’s part of their religion to lie to us civilized infidels.

This isn’t a war of borders or political ideologies…it’s a war of the survival of civilization!

the “meat” we call women occasionally deserving what they get when they don’t cover up.

He’s got quite a knack for saying things he didn’t say.

He’s actually clairvoyant – he could see ahead what Paris and Britney would do…two damsels doing more for the burqini industry than anyone else in the West.

Calling the British descendant of suffragettes…two for the price of one deal in January.

Some Aussies are no wussies. They have their share too…

Meh. Looks like the burq-track suit.

Kid from Brooklyn on January 11, 2007 at 1:30 PM

Kid, is that a man or a woman?

Entelechy on January 11, 2007 at 1:42 PM

None of those things can be fun to swim in. But of course form-fitting wetsuits are out because even though they cover completely they reveal the woman’s figure.
But then again muslims have no problems putting dress above safety.

Iblis on January 11, 2007 at 3:13 PM

please get this guy out of the country and back to iran

Defector01 on January 11, 2007 at 3:52 PM

Must I make the obvious point that the Aussie Muslims keep this barbarian in his post because they agree with what he says.

Tantor on January 11, 2007 at 4:04 PM

Regarding the burqa track suit model so graciously linked by the Kid From Brooklyn; Is that a male or female beast?

bloggless on January 11, 2007 at 6:35 PM

Has anyone read the testimonials for the Burkini? It is a sad testimonial to the state of women in these places.
