Many Australians would like to see Sheik Taj Aldin al-Hilali ride off into the sunset and disappear forever from our shores, but I take the opposite view.
Every time he opens his mouth and spews forth his venomous tirades, I sit back and chuckle, because he is exposing the extreme views among his own people. Australians have to learn that some people accept citizenship under false pretences. These people have no intention of respecting the laws and culture of the land which welcomed them. They even go so far as to declare that their Shariah laws override our Australian laws.
After years of warning that radical Muslims are harmful to Australian society, we have every right to say “We told you so.” The Imams have obtained citizenship by swearing allegiance to our nation and yet there are a few of them like Hilali who try to undermine our society.
Hilali himself badmouths Australia as often as he can on his trips to the Middle East. His latest outrage is to call on all Muslims to support Tehran in its struggle against the West, i.e the enemies of Islam. He is even being investigated right now for fraudulently supporting terrorists by redirecting funds to them.
He has upset so many people by his anti-Australian speeches that even the politicians are openly criticising him. What a relief to see political correctness being replaced by good old-fashioned common sense at last.
So that’s why I say Hilali should come back from Iran and keep talking. And better still, I want to hear Keysar Trad keep on telling us that the Mufti is misunderstood and is always taken out of context. Hilali is really a very nice guy, a scholar in fact, according to Trad.
Australians have to learn that there are many more radical Muslims here than was first thought. The fact that the Muslim leaders either can’t find a way of dismissing al-Hilali from his position as Mufti, or don’t want to, is further evidence that he has strong support from his own people.
Keep talking, Hilali, cause every time you speak and Keysar Trad explains, the people of Australia are getting an education.
