It’s hard out here for a cleric

October 30, 2006

Poor Australian Sheik Taj el-Din al-Hilali complains that his remarks comparing women to ‘uncovered meat’ and laying most of the responsibility for rape on them, were taken out of context.  He feels he’s being treated unfairly for that one remark, which he concedes “may not have been appropriate for Western culture”.

OK, here’s some context:  Excerpts of al-Hilali’s speech.  Go check it out.

Personally, I’m having a difficult time imagining the context that would redeem the cleric’s remarks.  He goes on at length: it’s 90% the woman’s fault.  He has a solution: when rape occurs, punish the man… and jail the woman for life.  Because women are the tools of Satan.

Oh, and Christians and Jews are going to hell, too.

    There’s more!

    “Sheik Alhihali told the Australian [press] that he only meant to refer to prostitutes as meat, and not any scantily clad woman without a hijab. “

    See folks, it’s alright cause’ prostitues aren’t human.

    “Would you put this sheep that you adore in the middle of hungry wolves? No . . . It would be devoured. It’s the same situation here. You’re putting this precious girl in front of lustful, satanic eyes of hungry wolves. What is the consequence? Catastrophic devastation, sexual harassment, perversion, promiscuity.”

    This is why historically farmers have killed wolves.

    Blaming the victim for the crime is just sick, but painting men to be some sort of crazed sex addicts with no self control is hardly flattering. 

    What’s even worse is the failure of the Muslim community to police themselves. He’s apparantly been banned from teaching in the largest muslim community in in Australia. That’s good. What would be even better is if he lost his position, but from the looks of it he’s only going to be suspended for about three months or so.

    C’est la vie.
