Firstly, you are quite right. Your name is zia and I should have addressed you correctly.

The main reason as to why when a muslim commits a crime the religion is called into question is very simple. Their crimes are generally committed in the name of their religion. I have seen this with my own eyes too many times in too many different places for me to ever beleive otherwise or ever trust the motives behind islam. Somalia, Western Sahara/Morrocco, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor.

Here in Australia the so-called mufti has just gone on Egyptian tv calling white Australians "unjust and liars" and saying that muslims have more right to our own country than we do. What are we supposed to make of that? Or the fact that he said that women invite their own rape by the way they dressed and compared them to "uncovered meat".

How is any reasonable person with any respect for women supposed to react? One of the tv stations in Australia had a viewer poll over the weekend. 100,000 people voted. 92000 want this clown removed. If the muslim community in this country don't act on this then they will just prove the rest of us right, won't they?

What about the shocking pack rapes that have occured in Australia over the last few years. The "men" convicted were all muslim. They all claimed in their defences that they were "culturally and religiously programmed" towards that form of treatment towards women and tried to blame the victims because the women talked to them. Explain the logic behind that.............
