Australian Imam Caught Vandalising Mosque

Hat tip: Gates of Vienna.

Sheikh Taj El-Din Hamid Hilaly is a controversial Imam based in Sydney, Australia. He is nicknamed Sheikh 'Catmeat' Hilaly in some quarters for the following comment which was made during a sermon in 2006:

"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 cats’ or the uncovered meat? The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred."

He also thought the long sentence given to Muslim gang rapists was more controversial than the brutal rapes themselves.

He was once again baffling and entertaining the Australian public this week; he reported an act of vandalism at his mosque, but the mosque CC:TV revealed he'd actually carried it out himself.

Take a look:

I'm actually surprised that the reporter was as confrontational as he was. What baffles me more is why the Sheikh is not now in police custody or on a flight home after lying to the police and trying to get an innocent man arrested.

I do like his excuse though: 'The door was damaged so I kicked it open to see how badly damaged'...

That's up there with 'continuing the confusion for fun'.
