And dismisses his Courtroom Jihad defamation case. Note also that Keysar Trad seems to misunderstand Islam in the same way as do all too many Muslims around the world — yet Muslim spokesmen in the West seem intent on blaming these “misunderstandings” on non-Muslims who report on them, without ever confronting the Muslims who seem to get Islam so terribly wrong.
“Judge slams Hilali spokesman Keysar Trad,” by Michael Pelly in The Australian, August 1 (thanks to all who sent this in):
KEYSAR Trad, the long-time spokesman for Muslim cleric Taj Din al-Hilali, was yesterday denounced as “racist”, “offensive” and “untruthful” by the Supreme Court judge who rejected his defamation claim against radio station 2GB.
Judge Peter McClellan said he agreed Mr Trad “incites acts of violence, incites racist attitudes, is dangerous and perhaps most significantly is a disgraceful individual”.
He added that the founder of the Islamic Friendship Association held views that were “entirely repugnant” to most Australians. They included:
* Defending the stoning of a women for adultery in Nigeria;
* Condoning suicide bombers and the use of children as martyrs;
* Calling homosexuality “a depraved carnal pursuit” that should be criminalised;
* Regarding Anglo-Irish Australians as “unworthy descendants of criminal dregs”;
* Joking about rapes committed by the Bilal Skaf gang;
* Believing America poses a greater threat to Australia than radical Islam; and
* Endorsing Hilali speeches which described the September 11 attacks as “blessings” and excused rapes on women who dressed like “uncovered meat”.
The judge noted that Mr Trad suggested in the last example that Sheik Hilali was talking about people who engage in extramarital sex — evidence he dismissed as “disingenuous”.
Justice McClellan cited an article in The Weekend Australian in September 2002 in which Mr Trad denied Muslims were behind September 11 and suggested Osama bin Laden could not have organised the attack.
“Osama bin Laden claimed responsibility for September 11,” Justice McClellan said. “A suggestion that the terrorist act was not perpetrated by adherents to Islam would not be accepted by Australians whatever their ethnic origin or religious views.”
Mr Trad had also hosted a web page with links to anti-Semitic sites and Adolf Hitler’s manifesto Mein Kampf: “He must be regarded as having apparent sympathies for the views of Adolf Hitler,” Justice McClellan said….
