If you think that you have just one life, think again. There's the life you think you have, the life others think you have and the life you really have- three lives!

Recent coments by Sheikh Taj El Din Al Hilaly (often referred to in the Australian media as Mufti of Australia) have again caused a media and public furore.
Sheikh Al Hilaly has openly demonstrated on Egyptian television his incapacity to lead Australian Muslims.
Australian Muslims cannot allow this situation to continue. It is up to us to do something about it and to show the broader community that we are peaceful, law abiding and loyal Australians.
If we do nothing, we only have ourselves to blame.


We, the undersigned Australian Muslims, reject comments made by Sheikh Taj El Din Hilaly.

We consider that these comments are offensive to all Australians and are not representative of the views of Australian Muslims.

We call upon the Australian media to desist in referring to Sheikh Hilaly as the leader of Australian Muslims.

We call upon the Australian National Imams Council to remove Sheikh Hilaly from office and to relinquish him of the title of Mufti of Australia.

Three ways you can sign this petition:

1. Go to:

2. Send me an email and I will forward an email petition which you can send on to other email contacts

3. If you would like to assist in collecting names for the petition, send me an email and I will email or post a hard copy of the petition to your nominated address.

If you want to do more:

Contact your local media. Write a letter to the newspaper, call talkback radio, send an email to your local paper, write to your local MP- you should state clearly and unequivocally that:

-Sheikh Al Hilaly does not represent Australian Muslims

-Australian Muslims do not share his views

-Sheikh Al Hilaly does not have community support as a leader of Australian Muslims in any capacity.

If you need assistance in drafting a letter, please email me and I will offer some suggestions on how to ensure that your letter is published.

Usual Suspect, isma3eeni. Great job on that petition but I have a question:

Is it ONLY and STRICTLY for Australian Muslims to sign or can other non-Australian Muslims sign it too? I wanna put it up on my blog and ask people to sign it.

Oh ya and what's your email address. Drop me something in my inbox. We've GOT to meet once you touch down in KL. Tamam?

Yalla salam.
