Radical Muslim cleric returns to Australia

Sheik Feiz Mohammed, a radical Muslim cleric who described Jews as “pigs” and is accused of inciting terrorism, has returned to Australia to preach after years in exile.

A Sydney native, Mohammed was told in 2007 by then–Prime Minister Kevin Rudd that he was “not welcome here” after he was featured in an inflammatory DVD series.

Media reports this week said Mohammed was back in Sydney teaching at mosques, which drew the ire of local Jewish leaders. — jta
