Australian-hating Muslim cleric Sheik Taj Aldin Al Hilali has been shooting his mouth off, again:
"Their values [Australia's] are upside down. They have no democracy, no freedom. They are the worst liars and unjust people," the sheik said in the Arabic-language interview.

Alhilali also defended the Muslim men convicted of Sydney's gang rapes, a position that has caused controversy in the past.

"They arranged to meet in a public park at 2 or 3 am in the morning, and it (the sex) was agreed on," he said.

Alhilali also poured scorn on Australia's convict history and seemed to suggest Muslims were in Australia long before the British settled here in 1788.

"Australia is no longer Anglo-Saxon. We've been in Australia longer than them. Islam is deep rooted in the Australian soil. Islam was here before the English fleet."
If Hilali is any guide, Australian Islam is indeed rooted. I mean, speaking your mind is one thing; again excusing the gang rape of young women is damn near begging for a violent reaction. In any event, these moronic remarks aren't exactly going to help improve Muslim relations with the broader community.

Then again it might just be that Hilali shit stirs because he doesn't want Muslims integrating into the polluted Australian community. One thing's for sure though, the guy doesn't like Australia and Australians and should stay overseas.

Update: Like it or not, Hilali is a citizen courtesy of Labor:
This is the point, you see, he came here, he overstayed his visa under normal rules, that’s it, you’re out. But, and of course the Minister for Immigration wanted to throw him out, Chris Hurford as you said. Then we had this very, very intriguing intervention of Paul Keating and Paul Keating somehow managed to keep Sheik Hilali in the country.
Update II: As predicted in comments, Hilali's number one apologist is making excuses:
[Islamic Friendship Association of Australia] spokesman Keysar Trad says says he apologises for the comments if they have caused offence, but says the Sheikh has been misinterpreted.
Update III: The translation of Hilali's comments is in dispute.

Update IV: A video clip of the Sheik's comments, with translation, is here. He's one arrogant fool.

While he is out of the country is a good time to de-approve his citizenship application...


Then he could stay in Egypt, futilely applying for a tourist visa to visit Oz.

Works for me.

I'm sure you're not the only Muslim asking that question.

I'm starting to wonder if he is a comedy act. Although the subjects are serious, his comments are so far out I laugh more than feel outraged.

Still, as long as he doesn't directly incite violence, I believe he should be able to say what he wants.
