The face of the enemy...

...and it's not a group of fringe radicals.

    After emerging from Friday prayers at Lakemba Mosque today, Sheik Hilaly was asked by a media pack whether he would quit over a speech in which he said scantily-dressed women invited rape.

    "After we clean the world of the White House first," the sheik said.

    Supporters of the sheik cheered and applauded loudly at the comments, which were directed firmly at US President George W Bush.

Sheik Hilaly is Australia's No. 1 Muslim cleric. He's not a rat hiding in a hole along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. He's "mainstream" Muslim.

Wake up, folks.
