Sydney - March 11, 2007 -Muslim cleric Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali announced today that Australia's 300,000 Muslims are considering forming their own political party, but one that will be be open to all faiths.
Interestingly, al Hilali, the imam of Sydney's biggest mosque, doesn't speak English despite more than 20 years in Australia, which should give you an idea of how insulated some Muslims have made themselves from Australian society and culture. The statement was translated by the former Lebanese Muslim Association president Keysar Trad.
Mr. Trad said his association drafted a proposal six years ago for a political party to be called the Australia Peace Party even printing thousands of membership forms, but canned the idea after 9/11. The party's focus was to be on universal values such as honesty, dignity and equality.

I have no problem with a group forming a party for those who have certain political principles they feel are not being met by existing parties; however forming a party whose ideals are human rights and equality and a fair shake will only lead to more evil in the world. The last thing the world needs is more equality and more fairness. Hasn't the fall of Communism taught anyone anything? The reason Communism failed is because making everyone equal leads to disruptions that doom the economy to failure. The reason Communism failed is because they wanted to be fair to everyone. Good intentions, fairness, and concerns about human rights is what made all the hunger and suffering in Africa possible. If we left Africa alone decades ago, there would be more food available than is now and as a consequence tens of millions fewer would now be suffering and dying.
What Muslims need are fewer things to further isolate themselves from the mainstream society. They need to join the existing parties and become Australians. My first suggestion for Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali is that before going around trying to change Australia to your liking, learn the goddamn language of your adopted country, you moron. Perhaps then Australians might be more fair to you. They certainly won't consider giving you equality if you run around ranting in Arabic and raping white young things because they don't wear a veil.

Some of you may recall this is the same cleric that sparked outrage when he compared immodestly dressed Australian women to "uncovered meat."
Muslim Cleric: Unveiled Women are like Juicy Steak, Excerpt:
In a Ramadan sermon in a Sydney mosque, Sheik al-Hilali suggested that a group of Muslim men recently jailed for many years for gang rapes were not entirely to blame.
There were women, he said, who 'sway suggestively' and wore make-up and immodest dress "and then you get a judge without mercy and gives you 65 years. But the problem, but the problem all began with who?" he said, referring to the women victims.
For God's Sake - Stop helping Africa, Excerpt:
Save the Children helped hundreds of thousands of children to survive 30 years ago in Sub-Saharan Africa. The result? More than a million children dying each year in the first 28 days of life. I estimate that for every child we rescue in Africa, we consign 10 to perpetual poverty and suffering, not counting another 5 that die before they are one year old.
