Little lol re. Australian Muslims and Gaddafi

Australian Muslim leader Keysar Trad was apparently going to give a peace prize to Muammar Gaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam. Apparently he “had them all fooled”. I guess Trad isn’t exactly a good judge of character…

As a side note, Saif al-Islam sponsored a Libyan flotilla to Gaza, which made him extremely popular in certain circles last year, the kind of circles that I would presume Trad moves in. I guess some supporters of the flotilla were not really humanitarians then? Well I never!

Gaddafi son had us all fooled, says Islamic group as it pulls award | The Australian

Keysar Trad, from the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, confirmed his organisation had intended to award Saif al-Islam Gaddafi its Champion of Cultural Inclusion prize for 2011.

…”He was seen as a progressive; he had worked to improve relations with the West, but he had us all fooled,” Mr Trad told The Australian. “Honestly, we are all shocked. What he is doing in Libya is completely unacceptable.
