Muslim Leader Likens Women to “Piece of Meat”

submissionfoto4.jpgHey I’m not making this stuff up. See men are not required to control themselves. In fact some believe that it is their religious duty to rape an immodest woman. Because the “piece of meat” deserved it.

The Australian:The nation's most senior Muslim cleric has blamed immodestly dressed women who don't wear Islamic headdress for being preyed on by men and likened them to abandoned "meat" that attracts voracious animals.

In a Ramadan sermon that has outraged Muslim women leaders, Sydney-based Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali also alluded to the infamous Sydney gang rapes, suggesting the attackers were not entirely to blame....

..."But the problem, but the problem all began with who?" he asked.

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."

Yeah, get back in the kitchen beotch and bake me a pie!
He said women were "weapons" used by "Satan" to control men.

"It is said in the state of zina (adultery), the responsibility falls 90 per cent of the time on the woman. Why? Because she possesses the weapon of enticement (igraa)."

Muslim community leaders were yesterday outraged and offended by Sheik Hilali's remarks, insisting the cleric was no longer worthy of his title as Australia's mufti.

Young Muslim adviser Iktimal Hage-Ali - who does not wear a hijab - said the Islamic headdress was not a "tool" worn to prevent rape and sexual harassment. "It's a symbol that readily identifies you as being Muslim, but just because you don't wear the headscarf doesn't mean that you're considered fresh meat for sale," the former member of John Howard's Muslim advisory board told The Australian. "The onus should not be on the female to not attract attention, it should be on males to learn how to control themselves."

Unfortunately I’m not surprised. Same old Same old Islam. I'm encouraged by the backlash from other Muslim leaders. It's a step in the right direction. A man is not a cat. A man knows his actions. I thought the purpose of Islam was to make humans of animals. Not to excuse the animal from his behaviour. Maybe I'm wrong?

2 They practice this supposed disciplineabout having or thinking about sex during Ramadan but the rest of the year they can go on and raping rampage. My argument to my previous co-workers and students was "Why do you only practice this spiritual discipline one month of the year? Shouldn't this be an everyday occurance (minus the fasting)? I guess it's part of their system since their salvation is supposed to be gained through meritorious good works, unlike Christians who perform good works because they have salvation by God's gracious granting already. Muslim men aren't responsible for anything they do. It's always someone else's fault. "She looked at me seductively through her niqab so I pulled off her burqa and raped her." It's not my fault, it was her fault. And America, the Joooos, George Bush, infidels everywhere and democracy. I'm a victim soI had to rape her. Satan's theo-political triumphantism at it's best. I know they probably can't expel him from Australia but they can sure make his life miserable. I hope they do so he gets the hell out of there.

Isn't that an oxymoron?

4 We finally gave Libs a war against religious fundamentalism, and the Libs refuse to fight it.

Posted by: Jesusland Carlos at October 26, 2006 12:37 PM

5 That's because they are cowards, Carlos. They would don the burqa and the rags on the head before they would fight this war of religious fundamentalism. You are so spot on.

6 Another example of why these barbarians should not be in western countries. They are incompatible with modern man. Send the bastards back to where they came from.

7 Yes, you are right on this one, Greyrooster. They will have to be sent back for two reasons, their safety and ours.

8 The Imans are afraid of pheremones. They are superstitious against science. It's the truth. Sickos.

9 The ROP has shown that they have the capability of quickly organizing world wide demonstrations over hte remarks of Pope Benedict, and over the cartoon incident of earlier this year, and it is noticable that the moderates ofthe ROP is incapable of quickly demonstrating against remarks over women being meat.

So does t he ROP really have moderates?

Personally, I think the idea of a moderate in the ROP is untruthful in the samewaythat Auschwitz had anorchestra and great landscaping at its enterance was untruthful because it was a place dedicated to the murder of the innocent. I think it is convenient for the Democratic Party to push a mythical idea of a moderate inthe ROP because then they can victimize the unwary!

10 I dug through the three "feminist" websites I knew offhand to find one word on this.

Silence. I did, however, find out there is a reproductive rights crisis in Nicaragua. Bigger fish and all that.

11 Concerned Mother, a "moderate" muslim is one who has assumed room
temperature. No matter how they behave, they are as wild animals, and
will behave so.

12 It's amazing the animalistic behavior that is excused in the name of Islam. Anything goes in the name of the Prophet (piss be upon him). Anyone who considers this a religion of peace is flat nuts and should be committed.

14 If muslim males are like cats then maybe they should get castrated like them?

15 Henry, everything concerning muslims and islam is an oxymoron.

And mother concerned, I guess if you can equate organizational abilities withcockroaches getting stirred out of their nests and feverishly scurrying about causing riots and mayhem, then I too am concerned!

16 I know this is getting to be an old topic, but this is from the ARAB NEWS. Check out how they interpret the reaction ...

"Saturday, 28, October, 2006 (06, Shawwal, 1427)

Hilali Message Lost in Translation
Siraj Wahab & P.K. Abdul Ghafour, Arab News —

JEDDAH, 28 October 2006 — Australian Muslims yesterday rallied behind the country’s mufti who said women who did not wear a veil were “uncovered meat” and attract unnecessary attention. According to news agencies, the country’s Muslims have pledged that the imam would keep his job as their spiritual leader.

Sheikh Taj Al-Din Al-Hilali, the Egyptian-born imam at the center of the raging controversy, was confirmed as the mufti of Australia yesterday after the governing body of Sydney’s largest mosque rallied behind him.

“The board is satisfied with the notion that certain statements made by the mufti were misinterpreted,” Tom Zreika, head of the Lebanese Muslim Association, told a radio station in Sydney. Zreika said, however, that Al-Hilali would not be preaching until after he has returned from the Haj pilgrimage in six weeks time."

Donthcha just start to feel like it's time to rage back? Not conspiring, just asking.

USA will pave the way!

17 Misinterpreted, my ass! The typical excuse they trot out every time that festering bag of maggots opens his filthy gob. Oh, he was 'taken out of context', or 'misinterpreted', or 'Arabic is such a poetic language, you know!'.

The speech is available online. The meat analogy was hateful enough but just a small part of this mysoginist hate-spew. He got a dig in at the People of the Book too (Jews Christians) - they're all going to hell, according to Hilaly. Women are 90% responsible for adultery, we're greedy (especially Canadian Mexican women), we're Satan's weapons, we should be in our rooms all hijabbed up, and he sneered at the nice long sentence the brutal, sadistic Sydney gang-rapists got because of course, the girls were lifting their skirts and swaying suggestively, according to this puke. No, one girl was sitting at the train station, in her business suit, waiting for the train to take her home. But she should have been in her room, all hijabbed up, according to this Dark Ages troglodyte.

There's a lot of anger here about this latest vileness. The speech was bad enough, but the lies and excuses afterwards were worse. As well as the closing of the ranks by the Muslims. He's done us all a favour - by again showing what Islam is really about. Hopefully it'll have opened a few more naive eyes.

18 Hey Infidels,

Get your Uncovered Meat Skimpy Clothing and stick it to the Imam.

Posted by: Didn't Take Long at October 28, 2006 09:42 AM

19 Actually, the imam has a point, but only if you look at it in the
context of islamic culture, which represents an older, unevolved, and
far more savage stage in human evolution. In their world, honor means
something totally different than it does in ours, and behavior is only
constrained by consquences rather than morals or ethics, and thus a man
can rape any woman whom he feels wants it, and if you're a mulim, any
woman who goes around uncovered obviously wants it.

Of course everyone with a brain knows that women like sex as much as
men, but there's this little thing I like to call "civilized behavior"
which we use to discriminate between the human and the savage by
teaching that civlized men don't perpetrate violence upon women for any
reason but the most extreme. If muslim men cannot be trusted around
women, they're nothing but animals who should be neutered or destroyed.
That's the long and short of it.

20 You puthetic example of humanity, your comments show you are far less worthy of being an Australian than that Sheikh. Australians are supposed to be an example of excellence and intelligance, your comments reveal nothing but racism, hatred and absolute stupidity.

Try getting an education.

22 Michael: Racism rules. Don't believe it. Ask your muslim friends.
