Australian imam blames women for rape...

This guy is one of the most senior imams in Australia.
Australia's most senior Muslim cleric compared women who go without a head scarf to "uncovered meat" left out for scavengers, drawing widespread condemnation and calls Thursday for his resignation.

Sheik Taj Aldin al Hilali denied he was condoning rape when he made the comments in a sermon last month, and apologized to any women he had offended, saying they were free to dress as they wished.

Hilali was quoted in The Australian newspaper Thursday as saying in the sermon: "If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside ... without cover, and the cats come to eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats' or the uncovered meat's?"

"The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred," he was quoted as saying, referring to the headdress worn by some Muslim women.

more to this than meets the eye. despite his latest spin & denial, this guy has a pretty sordid history.

The guy is a nutcase.

That said, there is a bigger problem buried here: The public and the blogosphere are all up in arms about this, yet nothing is said, nothing at all, about more serious and more violent sexism aimed at all males.

The Supreme Court of Canada says males are incapable of behaving ourselves, MP's throw very violent hatred at all males ... the result? SILENCE!

Look, we will never arrive at the place we want to be unless we are willing to treat all in a fair and just manner. We clearly are not yet willing to do that.
