• Hilali's Radical Mentor

    I'd much prefer to listen to Jazz (or even Rap) than the sounds
    of Muslims blowing up. :)


    Hilali's radical mentor
    Sheik Hilali's views on women have echoes in the teachings of an
    Islamist ideologue executed 40 years ago, writes Rebecca Weisser
    October 30, 2006

    WHEN Sayyid Qutb returned to Egypt in 1950 after a two-year
    scholarship in Harry Truman's halcyon America, he took home a master's
    degree from the Colorado State College of Education and contempt for
    Western women.

    "The American girl is well-acquainted with her body's seductive
    capacity. She knows it lies in the face and in expressive eyes and
    thirsty lips. She knows seductiveness lies in the round breasts, the
    full buttocks and in the shapely thighs, sleek legs, and she shows all
    this and does not hide it," he wrote in a paper, America That I Saw.

    It is no coincidence that Qutb's views have more than an echo in the
    sermons of Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, for whom women are soldiers of
    Satan armed with "the weapon of seduction". As recently as last week,
    Hilali, a self-professed admirer of Qutb, described him as a great
    leader, a symbol of Islam and a model for Muslims.

    The main tenets of Qutbism, which was later to feed the minds of the
    9/11 terrorists, were outlined in his book Milestones, a call to arms
    that is to modern-day jihadist-Salafists what Lenin's writings were to
    the Bolsheviks. It has also been likened to a jihadist version of
    Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf.

    Written while Qutb was in prison for conspiring against Gamal Abdel
    Nasser's secular Egyptian government and published in 1964, Milestones
    asserts that most Muslims are not true Muslims but had reverted to
    godless ignorance (jahiliyya).

    He advocated sharia not just as sacred law but as a complete way of
    life and advocated violent jihad to remove godless false Muslims and
    their governments as well as the Western and non-Islamic world from
    the face of the earth.

    Qutb's disgust for the degenerate West does not stop with its women or
    jazz music, which he claimed was "created by Negroes to satisfy their
    love of noise and to whet their sexual desires". He described the West
    as a "rubbish heap" and claimed that because of its "enmity toward
    Islam" it planned to "demolish the structure of Muslim society". He
    claimed the Western world realised "that Western civilisation is
    unable to present any healthy values for the guidance of mankind" and
    that Americans blushed with shame at the immorality of their country
    compared with Islam's "logic, beauty, humanity andhappiness".

    Qutb was virulently anti-Semitic, claiming in Milestones that world
    Jewry was engaged in tricks and schemes "to eliminate all limitations, especially the limitations imposed by faith and religion, so that Jews
    may penetrate into (the) body politics of the whole world and then may
    be free to perpetuate their evil designs. At the top of the list of
    these activities is usury, the aim of which is that all the wealth of
    mankind end up in the hands of Jewish financial institutions, which
    run on interest."

    Hitler, according to Qutb, was sent by Allah to rule over the Jews and
    punish them for their "unprecedented abominations".
