    Aussie Muslim Leader: Hostage Rescue "Irresponsible"

    Muslim cleric says raid to save Australian hostage ‘irresponsible’.

    The Muslim cleric who travelled to Iraq on a mercy mission to save Australian hostage Douglas Wood, has described last week’s rescue raid as irresponsible.

    Mr Wood, 63, was rescued during the raid on a Baghdad house after being held for 47 days by Iraqi insurgents.

    Speaking on his return to Sydney after six weeks trying to negotiate Mr Wood’s release, Sheik Taj El-Din Al Hilaly says he is happy Mr Wood is free.

    However he says the raid endangered the lives of two Iraqis who were kidnapped at the same time.

    Sheik El-Hilaly says if Iraqi and Coalition forces had waited 12 hours all three would have been released.

    In 2004, this same Australian Islamic leader gave a sermon at the Sidon mosque in Lebanon in which he told believers that one day a muezzin will call out “Allahu Akbar!” from the top of the White House, and that “September 11 is God’s work against oppressors.”
