The Daily Telegraph is having an absolute field day with the Sydney protesters. Yesterday’s front page featured some rather angry faces on the front cover. The words "Muslim unrest" featured at the top of pages four and five. They haven't had this much fun down at Holt Street since October 2006 when the headline "YOU HEARTLESS IGNORANT MAN" was splashed over the front page along with a photo of a besieged Grand Mufti.
Many Muslims in Sydney haven't been this embarrassed since Shaykh Hilaly's infamous cat-meat comments. Readers may recall the then Mufti of Australia made remarks linking women’s dress to s-xual assault. And it wasn’t just tabloid newspapers condemning the man. Politicians, commentators and others weighed in, calling for Hilaly to resign.
