Australia's Top Muslim Leader Blames Women for Rape
Women are oppressed, second-class citizens in Islam. It's really just that simple. The abuse and hatred that Islam shows its women is one of Islam's most disgusting, backward, and evil aspects ... among so many such evils.
The Muslim Veil, for instance, is just one of Islam's many oppressions of women. But, the hate they display of women in general is endemic in the religion. And, Australia's supposed Muslim leader, Sydney-based Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, has displayed this fact once more by blaming women for the notorious gang rapes perpetrated by a gang of Muslims there.

While not specifically referring to the rapes, brutal attacks on four women for which a group of young Lebanese men received long jail sentences, Sheik Hilali said there were women who "sway suggestively" and wore make-up and immodest dress ... "and then you get a judge without mercy (rahma) and gives you 65 years".
"But the problem, but the problem all began with who?" he asked.
The sheik then said: "If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred."
He said women were "weapons" used by "Satan" to control men.
"It is said in the state of zina (adultery), the responsibility falls 90 per cent of the time on the woman. Why? Because she possesses the weapon of enticement (igraa)."
Disgusting... but all too common a sentiment in Islam. Men are too stupid to control themselves and women are merely the "tools of Satan" because of that "igraa" all about them!
This kind of hatred expressed toward women is a concept so against the moral concepts of freedom, liberty, and equality that all forward thinking people hold dear and such hatred should be universally condemned. Unfortunately, too many will turn a blind eye to this and other examples of Muslim hate in the misguided name of "tolerance".
It is just one more reason that Islam needs a reformation to come into modernity.
