Twinkle in his eye

Allah is an environmentalist.

A MUSLIM cleric has blamed the drought, climate change and pollution on the lack of faith Australians have in Allah.

Sheik Mohammed Omran told followers at his Melbourne mosque that out-of-control secular scientific values had caused environmental disaster.

“The fear of Allah is not there,” he said at a recent meeting. "So we now have a polluted earth, a polluted water, a wasteland."
However, another of his representatives is calling for more CO2-emitting babies. But since it's in the good cause of Islamising Australia, that's all right. London-based neo-colonialist, sheik Abdul Raheem Green:
"The birth rate in the Western countries is going down. People are more interested in their careers . . . they don't want to have babies,” Sheik Green says in the DVD [sent to Australian mosques].

"So don't you think, Muslim brothers and sisters, we've got a bit of an opportunity here? They're not having babies any more. So what if, instead, we have the babies?"
How do you read that "brothers and sisters" bit?

So you think this was just the media pushing him into the 'Nutty Muslim' stereotype? You may be right.

In fact, he's saying no more than a lot of Church of England bishops come out with. But what was the context for this? It's an outright condemnation of the modern technological world. Which is also a condemnation of the culture that produced it. The West.

The press was unfair, then. It made fun of him where it should have taken him more seriously. However, I still don't like what he said.
