Muslim “Leaders” In Australia: Wear A Sleeveless Dress And You Deserve To Be Raped

From Tim Blair[1]:

Sheikh Feiz Muhammad last year told a Sydney audience that victims of sexual assault deserved to be raped[2]:

She has no one to blame but herself, for she has displayed her beauty to the whole world. Strapless, backless, sleeveless – they are nothing but satanical.

Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali—Australia’s most super-dooper Sheik—has lately picked up on that same theme[3], according to the Australian:

In the religious address on adultery to about 500 worshippers in Sydney last month, Sheik Hilali said: “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.”

The sheik then said: “If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred.”

I hate to say it, but unfortunately, this sort of grotesque mentality is all too common in many parts of the Islamic world. Why are women forced to wear burqas and veils? So they won’t “tempt” men into raping them. In fact, if you look at Sharia law, it requires 4 male witnesses to any rape[4], which in effect, makes rape an “unprosecutable” crime. Show me someone who’s pro-Sharia and I will show you someone who believes men should be able to get away with raping women.

Now, let me be clear: most Muslims don’t think this way, but it’s another one of those situations where a “small minority” of Muslims (read one out of every 5 or 10 Muslims) has this backwards mentality and it’s enough to cause enormous problems when these people enter free and open Western societies. If you don’t believe that, read this old Mark Steyn column talking about the inordinate number of rapes being committed by Muslims in Europe and Australia[5].

So, what’s the best solution to this problem? It would be for the majority of Muslims who don’t agree with these ideas to loudly speak up about them and make it clear that they’re unacceptable. But unfortunately, as we’ve seen with terrorism, that happens far too infrequently.

PS: Also via Tim Blair,[6] the “uncovered meat” sheik involved has given a non-apology apology. You know, if people are offended by what I’ve said, I’m sorry about that. Of course, even that lame apology probably would not have been offered if the Australian government wasn’t talking about deporting him[7]:

“AUSTRALIA’S top Muslim cleric Sheik Taj Aldin al-Hilali should be sacked and deported for comments which essentially excused young Muslim men who committed rape, federal Sex Discrimination Commissioner Pru Goward said today.

Ms Goward said the sheik had a history of making such comments and many would feel Australia’s tolerance had been abused.

…”It’s time we stopped just saying he should apologise. It is time the Islamic community did more then say they were horrified. I think it is time he left.”

She said the real issue was that he was excusing Muslim men for crimes against women on the grounds that women asked for it.

Ms Goward said Australia had moved on from that thinking a long time ago.

“I repeat, I think it was time he was asked to go and I would encourage the authorities to consider whether a man who incites young Muslim men to crime, because that is essentially what he has done, should be allowed to stay,” she said.

….”We have got past the stage of everybody rushing around being upset and saying he should apologise and the Islamic community understandably and rightly being annoyed and embarrassed,” she said.

“If we are really serious about Islamic and Islamic Australia being part of Australia, then I think there has got to be a bit more leadership shown and he has got to leave.
