Our anti-Wahhabi hero
Australia’s Sheikh Al-Hilali, he of the terminal foot-in-mouth disease, is at it again. Now he says, according to AP, that “he’s the target of a campaign by ‘extremists’ and other rival Muslims to discredit and unseat him.” (Thanks to Twostellas.) He specifically mentioned Wahhabis, who make up a tiny portion of Australian Muslims.
What does he expect us to believe that the wicked Wahhabis did? Kidnap and brainwash him to spout radical Islamic jihadist sentiments, which is why he’s in hot water in the first place? Does he think that if he says he’s opposed to the Wahhabis, non-Muslims in Australia and the West will go back to assuming he’s a moderate? The problem is that many of them no doubt will.
