SBS: Embedded with Sheik Hilaly

The Herald Sun is reporting today on a new documentary featuring the former “mufti” of Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands, Sheikh Taj ad-Deen al-Hilali.  It’s called Embedded with Sheikh Hilaly (the image above is taken from the SBS website).

SHEIK Taj Hilaly, the former Mufti of Australia who compared scantily clad women to “uncovered meat” in 2006, is making a comeback in a SBS documentary.

According to the SBS website, it will be a three part documentary, following Dave, a “white guy from Brisbane”, who moves in with the former mufti to supposedly “understand” what it means to be a Muslim.

In the opening scene he declares, “I’m the man of ladies in Australia” and pretends to strike women with a stick.
