Hired thugs vs the Mural

Monday, 17 January 2011 18:21 Assad Elepty Confronting Islam - Infidel Resistance

On Sunday, a demonstration was held in Newtown, Sydney, opposing a Mural that states: "Say No To Burqas".

The demonstration turned violent and over 100 police were deployed and several arrests were made.

The demonstration highlighted two very important issues. In the fist instance, it is reverse discrimination against freedom of speech and expression in Australia as surely the owner of the premises is entitled to express his view in a non violent manner.

I personally find the Burqa offensive, un-Australian and divisive, it is uncalled for and not part of any Australian tradition by any stretch of the imagination and I genuinely pity the poor women who wear it.

We do NOT want the Australian culture challenged by any person, group or faith.

In the second instance, it is concerning that some of the women who wear the Burqa are either forced to, or they tell us it shows they are “dignified, respectable and virtuous, and it is part of their Islamic dress code for unrighteous women”.

The direct inference is that the women (the 99.9% of Australian women) who do not wear this item of dress are some how less respectable, less dignified and inferior to Islamic women who do wearing the Burqa. The essence and very disturbing notion is that women who do not wear the Burqa are some how "lesser to the superior Burqa wearing women".

This disgraceful sentiment was reiterated by Sheik Taj Din Hilali when he said:

"If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park or in the back yard without a cover and the cats eat it, is it the fault of the cat or the uncovered meat?" (source)

The comments are derogatory and are an insult to every Australian woman.

It troubles me that women in Islamic countries are degraded and forced to wear this inappropriate draconian garment.

Surely their Muslim brothers will respect women irrespective of their dress code and exhibit self control and respect for their sisters.

Before Taj Din Hilali starts to ridicule non Muslim Australian women, I ask him if he is aware that in his home land of Egypt (90% Muslim), sexual harassment of women is so epidemic that the women themselves created a tracking system for reporting the sexual harassment that occurs as the police would not act:

"For women in Egypt, sexual harassment is an unwelcome but all too common part of life. In 2008, the Egyptian Center for Women’s Rights released statistics stating that 83% of Egyptian women and 98% of foreign women in Egypt reported exposure to sexual harassment. HarassMap, a project based in Cairo, plans to give women an outlet to report instances of haramessnt. Combining FrontlineSMS and Ushahidi’s mapping platform, HarassMap aims to be a voice for women." (source)

It is evident that the problem lies with Islamic men and the dress is a means of protection.

If Taj Hilali does not like it here he can go back to Egypt and enjoy the bliss of an Islamic Nation.

People like him that make such outrageous statements do not deserve to live in Australia.

In a hateful manner, he tarnishes Australia and covers up the FILTH in his Islamic Homeland.

Taj Din Hilali is an Egyptian, it has to be wondered why he seems to remain ignorant to the official edicts of the highest Islamic institutes in the world, or why he chooses to ignore them and deceive the Australian community as surely he and his Muslim brothers and sisters will respect the edicts of these Islamic leaders and scholars in the world.

What I find totally reprehensible is the ignorance of people like him in the Islamic community. Like many others I have studied the Koran and have repeatedly asserted that the Burqa is un-Islamic and not sanctioned in the Koran.

The Burqa is a cultural not religious tradition.

Why does the Muslim community pick and choose what Islamic edicts they will adhere to? Why do they lie and mislead us by wilful omission? Surely these clerics will uphold the rulings of their OWN Islamic leaders?

While the debate regarding the Burqa rages around the world, an example of this selective choosing was shown on the program Insight, featured on channel SBS in December 2010. Not one Islamic cleric or Imam on the show made reference to the comments of one of the Deans of the highest Islamic institutes in the world; the al-Azhar University.

It seems as though it is inconvenient for them and they use the Burqa as a divisive tool in the name of Islam.



Egypt's highest Muslim authority has said he will issue a religious edict against the growing trend for full women's veils, known as the niqab. Sheikh Mohamed Tantawi, dean of al-Azhar university, called full-face veiling a custom that has nothing to do with the Islamic faith.
Although most Muslim women in Egypt wear the Islamic headscarf, increasing numbers are adopting the niqab as well.
The practice is widely associated with more conservative trends of Islam.
The niqab question reportedly arose when Sheikh Tantawi was visiting a girls' school in Cairo at the weekend and asked one of the students to remove her niqab.
The Egyptian newspaper al-Masri al-Yom quoted him expressing surprise at the girl's attire and telling her it was merely a tradition, with no connection to religion or the Koran.
