Today’s Male Terrorism: Imam Suggests Sydney Gang Rape Victims Were Raped Because They Were Like So Much “Uncovered Meat”

Bilal Scaf of Sydney’s Bilal Scaf Rape Gang

Last month in a Ramadan sermon given in Arabic and translated by Australian reporters into English, in commenting on gang rapes of Australian girls by Muslim gangs, Sheik Taj Aldin al Hilali said:  

“If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover and the cats come and eat it . . . whose fault is it, the cat’s or the meat? The uncovered meat is the problem.  If she was in her room, in her home, no problem would have occurred.”

Australian government spokesperson Yasmine Ahmed called the Imam’s statements “misogynist and patriarchal” and said she reacted with “absolute disgust and disappointment”, continuing, “I think my immediate reaction is disappointment, more than anything, that someone who considers themselves a leader of the community would make such uninformed and ridiculous comments that have no basis in Islam.  His comments have absolutely no basis in the Qu’ran . . . there’s no basis in the teachings of the prophet.   If there was, I would not be a Muslim…The only thing Muslim leaders should be saying about any sexual assaults is to absolutely condemn them in unconditional terms.”

Sheik Taj Aldin al Hilal

And what does the good Imam have to say?  He says his comments were “misinterpreted.”  Right.  Kind of like the Israeli President’s sexual assaults and rapes were a matter of his victims’ “misinterpretation.”  Kind of like Russia’s Putin didn’t really mean his congratulatory remarks about the Israeli President’s rapes; he was just misunderstood.

  1. A cat is an animal – men are not?

  2. I think that’s the most disgusting blame the victim story I’ve heard in a while. Fantastic response from the government spokeswoman, though; I can’t imagine an english politician using the word misogyny!

  3. ‘Misunderstood’. And the victims probably ‘misunderstand’ in thinking they have been raped.

  4. Profacero, you might be surprised how many victims of rape are told that. I don’t have any hard stat’s no, but I’ve sat around enough kitchen tables and heard enough women’s stories to know, it’s been more than once.

    As for this is it the cats fault or the meat? Okay okay, I’m trying to wrap my head around this “logic”, If men are as to cats as women are to meat, then women are lifeless lumps of non-sentient matter?

    This is more than blame the victim mentality, this is strip the victim of her humanity, of her status as a sentient being. Its like smashing a piece of marble then standing over the pile of dust saying take that! That’s what you get for inspiring a feeling in me, biotch!

    This is truly insane.

  5. welcome to the real world,…

    we ignored it once, now its falling on our head..

    we forgot what sati system was all about… where hindu womens (majority) & some Budhist women decided to sucide 700 yrs back. this was a loophole in vedic culture… but they only have two options.. to live like a sex slave for Muslims, or to die. under circumstances of no hope, they decided to die.

    the same ideology still extends and no one want to study…

    isn’t its strange, that all evil sources are merging at this point… including Jewish holocaust in germany. where Jewish holocaust is made by Hitler… but we forgot Al-Husseini, the spiritual guider for Hitler…. Al Husseini life is even not well documented, they croped his close ties with indian Muslims… who are later source of taliban and other terrorist groups.
