The test of Australia's Muslims

Andrew Bolt of the Herald—Sun put it very well. Australia's Muslims were given a test. And they failed. Via Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch:

It's the code of the tribe: the worst of us is better than the best of you. We have urgent work to do if we want to save ourselves.

Excuses over. The disgraced mufti of Australia set Muslims a test last month and they failed.

That test couldn't have been easier: make Sheik Taj el—Din al—Hilaly pay for preaching that unveiled women invited rape.

Prove that Muslims can't be led by a man who says raped women must be "jailed for life". Prove we have nothing to fear from your faith.

Simple? Yet yesterday 34 Muslim groups signed a petition backing this bigot, while others plan a big rally for Sydney tomorrow, denouncing not Hilaly but the non—Muslims who criticise him.

The results are in: Islam here —— as represented by many of its leaders —— is now a threat.

These words sound harsh to PC ears. But how can one logically dispute the proposition? Or do the PC crowd want to return to the days when women were raped and then blamed because they "were asking for it"?

Has anyone heard from NOW on this story?

Update: Saudi Court sentences rape victim to 90 lashes. Shari'a and its glories are coming our way, if the Islamists and their enablers have their way.
