Muslim Holy Man Says Aussies Love Gambling, Hookers, and Beer

They think happiness can be achieved by being intoxicated, by going to the casino and blowing your money away, by going from one prostitute to the other.

An Islamic cleric has denounced his fellow Australians as being addicted to alcohol, prostitution, and gambling. During a sermon online, Melbourne cleric Abu Hamza said Australians need to be saved from themselves, according to a report by the Herald-Sun. 

"They think happiness can be achieved by being intoxicated, by going to the casino and blowing your money away, by going from one prostitute to the other, " said the religious lecturer to his Internet following. Hamza had already caused a stir by previously advancing the opinion on his site that it is alright for Muslim men to hit their wives and force them to have sex, drawing a demand for an apology from Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.

Roger Alwood, a Melbourne resident, said in reply, "He's right, we like all those things. That's why Australians are the happiest people on Earth, cause we know what's good for us!"

Another Melbourne man asked if the reason Muslims needed to beat their wives was out of frustration that they weren't "hot young whores with ice-cold beers serving their men while the men play online casino games."

Social commentators noted that, just as US evangelistic zealots, religious nuts worldwide seem to feel he compulsion to enforce their spartan lifestyles on others. Tony Harrington, playing a poker machine at a Sydney pub, put down his drink long enough to say, "It just proves misery loves company. Let 'em do what they want, but leave me alone. Unless you are one of these prostitutes I wish I was bouncing from!"
