How The Oz proved Rupert Murdoch’s al-Qaida link

Writing in The Australian today, Dicky Kerbaj claims to have revealed "for the first time" the identity of six imams paid by Saudi Arabia. That's right. Six, writes Irfan Yusuf.

My old buddy Sheik Dicky Kerbaj continues his series on the nefarious Saudi influence on Muslim institutions. Writing in The Australian today, Kerbaj claims to have revealed "for the first time" the identity of six imams paid by Saudi Arabia. That's right. Six.

Sydney has some 100 mosques. Melbourne perhaps more. Maybe 20 in Brisbane. All have at least one full-time paid imam. Among the gang-of-six is imam at the Omar Mosque at Auburn. Had Kerbaj visited the mosque, he'd have seen a plaque there clearly stating the mosque is fully owned by the Australian Islamic Cultural Centre, an organisation run by Australia's Saudi religious financier Shafiq Khan.

    Why didn’t Michael Moore alert us to this?

    Influencing FoxNews is like pulling wings off flies, it’s just too easy.
