Wouldn’t it be nice just once, just once!, to see a jihadist actually take responsibility for some outrageous thing he says, instead of blaming others and claiming he was quoted out of context? This time it’s the Australian sheikh who said that women were to blame when they were raped. “Hilaly says he will not resign,” from The Australian, with thanks to LGF:
EMBATTLED Muslim cleric Sheik Taj al-Din al-Hialy has vowed he will not resign, complaining he is a victim of media propaganda and exaggeration….
Asked on the Nine Network’s Sixty Minutes program tonight whether he had thought about resigning since news of his comments broke, Sheik Hilaly said: “Confronted with this campaign against me, no”.
“I accept the challenge and I’m not going to give in against any power,” he said through an interpreter.
Sheik Hilaly complained that his comments about women had been taken out of context.
“I am outspoken, and I have the courage to say the truth,” he told interviewer Ray Martin.
“I don’t fear any man, but I also have the courage to admit my mistakes and if I did something wrong, I will say that I did something wrong.
“I am a victim of media propaganda that exaggerates things and takes it all out of proportion,” he said.
