Islamic Leader Claims Rape Victims Share Responsibility

Australian Islamic leader, Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali ridicules nation of convicts and suggests that Australian women and children should share the blame for acts of sexual violence against them. In October 2006, the leader of Australian Muslims created an outrage with his raping comment comparing "women who wore make-up and dressed immodestly to meat that attracted cats."

Now, in self imposed exile in his birth land of Egypt, the shrieking sheik suggests that he has more right to live in Australia than the decedents of colonial convicts. He claims that because he paid for his passport he has a greater right to reside here.

Referring to the English as the biggest liars of all Westerners, Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, is at risk of alienating two countries: Australia and England. Having lived and worked in both countries, my professional experience informs that crimes of a sexual nature are considered serious crimes and breaches of human rights in both countries.

The Mufti’s position allows him many rights and responsibilities. I wish he’d exercise them. Sexual harassment, sexual abuse, and rape are against the law in the West, including both England and Australia. Under the criminal code, the perpetrators of sexual offenses are FULLY responsible.

No matter what a woman or child wears they are never responsible for what a sexually deviant person does to them. Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali’s suggestion that “Australian law guarantees freedoms to the point of insanity" is partially correct. He’s allowed to re-enter our country because he is an Australian citizen and he has the right to sprout archaic, inflammatory and oppressive statements of patriarchy as the spiritual leader of his Australian people. Thank goodness many of them are smarter and more spiritually advanced than he is.

Thumbs down to Mufti Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali. His comments supporting rapists make him a domestic terrorist in my view. A metaphorical incestuous head of his family, Australia would be a better place without him.

What’s your views?

Megan, I would like to state that I share your views completely. As an Australian born citizen of this country, descended from both convict and free settlers, it is my strong belief that this man would better serve Australia by not returning here. Thumbs down to him and those who support his views. Mum.

Thanks Mum. I know that there are many people who are now more outraged than they were with the Sheiks original comments.

Give the man free speech yes, but for goodness sake, I wish somebody could give him some lessons in inteligence and wider thinking.

Perhaps the Australia Day Award could go to him - We award you with a permanent suspension of your Australian passport.
