The misunderstood mufti


Sigmund, Carl and Alfred has a post, "The mufti loves women in the same measure he loves Jews" directly quoting the mufti of Australia who thinks unveiled women are uncovered meat.

It seems the mufti feels misunderstood.

Not that this is the first time: He surely felt equally misunderstood back in 2004 when he praised the September 11 terrorist attacks as "God's work".

Or when he dismissed the Holocaust as a "Zionist lie" and when stated that he believes that Israel is a "cancer that is planted in the heart of the Ummah (Muslim community)".

But fear not, the Beeb finds him Neat, snappy and eminently quotable.

A change of clothes, and you'd think he's another Noel Coward.

On the BBC: The BBC's commitment to bias is no laughing matter (h/t SC&A)

A culture of ingrained evil

I really need blood pressure medicine. The BBC article only highlights the problems the BBC has- and are finally being discussed.

Hilali is a real piece of work, eclipsed only by the idiots that support him.
