Daily Mail, October 26, 2006:

...In a Ramadam sermon in a Sydney mosque, Sheik al-Hilali suggested that a group of Muslim men recently jailed for many years for gang rapes were not entirely to blame.

There were women, he said, who 'sway suggestively' and wore make-up and immodest dress "and then you get a judge without mercy and gives you 65 years. But the problem, but the problem all began with who?" he said, referring to the women victims.

... Sheik al-Hilali added: "If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it..whose fault is it - the cats or the uncovered meat?

"The uncovered meat is the problem." ...

Bill O'Reilly on The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly, August 2, 2006:

Now Moore, Jennifer Moore, 18, on her way to college. She was 5-foot-2, 105 pounds, wearing a miniskirt and a halter top with a bare midriff. Now, again, there you go. So every predator in the world is gonna pick that up at two in the morning....

And the thug takes her over to New Jersey in the cab and kills her and rapes her and does all these terrible things to her....

Guess which one got right-wingers upset?

(Just to clarify: They both offend me. But let's not pretend Muslims have some sort of monopoly on this kind of talk.)


UPDATE: The Australian mufti apologized, then was suspended for three months by the mosque association of Sydney.

O'Reilly? No suspension so far.
