Once again we begin from the wires, and this time it concerns a leading Muslim cleric;

"A Muslim cleric claim that women who do not wear the veil are like 'uncovered meat' who attract sexual predators sparked outrage around Australia yesterday.
Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali, the nation's most senior Muslim cleric, compared immodestly-dressed women who do not wear the Islamic headdress with meat that is left uncovered in the street and is then eaten by cats"

And what he means is that it is a woman's fault if she is attacked and she did not have here veil on. Consider what he thinks about men. Instead of likening women to animals, he actually indirectly describes men as wild animals that are unable to control themselves in the presence of a woman who is not covered in a veil! This is the leading Muslim cleric in Australia, the most senior, which means he knows his belief system. A sad but true picture of how women in the Muslim tradition are demeaned and truly made slaves of religion. The only good news for these women is that Jesus Christ can free them from the slavery that is the Muslim religion. Through Christ they can truly know the love of God. That is not just true for Muslim women it is true for every sinner regardless of faith who would receive Jesus Christ as the forgiver of their sins and the owner of their life!
