That's a Good Mate

Canberra denounces cleric's jihad call

THE federal Government has denounced an Australian-born Muslim cleric for calling Jews pigs and urging children to die for Allah.

Sydney-born Sheik Feiz Mohammed, head of the Global Islamic Youth Centre at Liverpool in Sydney's west, delivered the hateful rant on a collection of DVDs called the Death Series, sold in Australia and overseas.

Acting Attorney-General Kevin Andrews said today the importation of hatred into Australia was totally unacceptable.

"The Australian Government denounces these reprehensible and offensive remarks," Mr Andrews told reporters in Adelaide.

"We particularly denounce the outrageous comments made about the Jewish community in Australia."
