Hilali: every bit as bad as nazis and white supremacists...

Mufti of Australia, Sheikh Taj el-Din al-Hilali, can’t get enough of sticking his foot in his mouth.

Annnnd…. once again, Keysar Trad is apologising for the mufti… and again claiming Hilali has been quoted out of context. Sorry Keysar, no sale. Moreover, defending the indefensible is an unbecoming look. Keysar, the mufti is wrong to the core- and you know it.

Hilali’s uneducated and thoughtless generalisations are every bit as bad as those of net-nazis… and gives said white supremacists all the ammo they need to endlessly crap on about the evils of Muslims and associated brown people. Both ends of that spectrum live in their insular little ethnic worlds, fearful to the bone of anything they don’t recognise and far more ready to hate the unfamiliar than learn about it.

The mufti does Australian Muslims about as many favours as the Short Chap.

The dude is an idiot. I also think his comments aren’t representative of Islam, simply representative of being uneducated and stupid.

He is a less media savvy, Muslim Fred Nile.

Lachlan, whats most disturbing is that Hilali’s boundless stupidities are simply the same sort of crap spewed by neo-nazis and other assorted racists, but merely turned on their heads. The terms ‘backwater hick’ and ‘racist moron’ jump to mind, no matter who is being damned.

A ‘Muslim Fred Nile’ is an apt characterisation, dj, but Nile isn’t exactly what you’d call ‘media savvy.’ Now, when he gets his own TV network… we’ll talk again. ;)

OK, Chaytor’s been found guilty of assault. Let’s see if Iemma waits for Chaytor to appeal.

Actually he is no more moronic than many of the western idiots we have running things, only his ability to put foot in mouth has an additional inflammatory AND VERY CULTURAL aspect. But abusing women and the unemployed is common in this culture, and we are so used to hearing it that we do not see it as equally idiotic.
