Name Five Things More Radical than John Pilger
US-born Muslim leader Sheik Khalid Yasin, currently raising funds to open an Islamic television network in Australia, offers his intriguing views on:Jesus Christ!
MULTICULTURALISM: “How can you put a sacred trust in the hands of a non-Muslim? There’s no such thing as a Muslim having a non-Muslim friend.”
FASHION: “If you prefer the clothing of the kafirs over the
clothing of the Muslims, most of those names that’s on most of those
clothings is faggots, homosexuals and lesbians.”
SEPTEMBER 11: “We now know that the way that the World Trade Center fell the way that those buildings fell — they fell from internalexplosive charges, the same way it’s done in a construction site.”
AIDS: “An AIDS virus, that is a classic disease that was created in Fort McKinley, United States. Fort McKinley, the AIDS virus, 63,000 gallons ... Missionaries from the World Health Organisation and Christian groups went into Africa and inoculated people for diphtheria, malaria, yellow fever and they put in the medicine the AIDS virus.”
HIMSELF: “Some people characterise me as a radical cleric. I’m not more radical than Mahatma Gandhi or John Pilger or Jesus Christ.”
I spoke to an Egyptian cabbie a couple of weeks ago who said that the people behind Islam FM held similar views and expressed them openly on air (in Arabic).
