#MyJihad in Australia: Muslim leader misunderstands Islam, says, “Army of Muslims…went to China, India, and the Maghreb. That is jihad.”
How did Sheikh Al-Wahwah get the crazy idea that jihad had to do with armies? Doesn’t he know it’s just about getting in shape, as Hamas-linked CAIR assures us?
“Ship out Sheik Ismail Al-Wahwah, says Queensland Liberal MP Steve Ciobo,” by Henry Budd for The Daily Telegraph, January 11 (thanks to all who sent this in):
A RADICAL sheik who has called for Australia to become an Islamic state ruled by sharia law should be “slapped down” by moderate Muslims, according to a federal MP.
Sheik Ismail Al-Wahwah, the Australian head of extremist Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir, suggested during a Christmas Eve sermon that jihad should be used to implement hardline teachings.
Queensland Liberal MP Steve Ciobo said the sheik should adopt Australia’s values of tolerance and a fair go for all or “pack up and ship off”.
“Frankly, we have had a gutful of people who deliberately incite hatred and people who want to overturn the foundation principles of this country,” he said. “This Sheik Al-Wahwah needs to be slapped down from moderate Muslim supporters who recognise there is no place in Australia for these kinds of attitudes.”The sheik told supporters it was their duty to “carry the light of Islam to the rest of the world … Not with flowers. It was the army of Muslims which started from Medina, and they went to China, India, and the Maghreb.
“That is jihad.”
He said under an Islamic government, alcohol would be banned, a strict dress code enforced for all Australians and languages other than Arabic banned in schools….
