Cleric in sex sermon furor

The article opens in bold print.  The story is about a Muslim cleric in Australia declaring that women who do not wear headscarves are to blame for sexual assaults.  At the end of the piece, the cleric claims he was taken out of context, and apologizes to women who may have been offended.

I suppose some women could be offended by being compared to an uncovered piece of meat, a phrase the cleric used in his sermon, but that’s besides the point.  If the remarks were taken out of context, a case could be made that the headline was just another jab at radical Islam, but when you read the full story, take note of where you are.  You’re reading a report from Aljazeera.
