Mustapha Kara-Ali is basing his claim to be above Australian law on Australian law:
“The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) Act 2012 stipulates that when it is carrying out religious activities that are related to the practice, study, teaching or propagation of its religious beliefs, or other activities ancillary to them … Diwan Al Dawla, as a basic religious charity is not required to comply with Australian laws.”
The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) refutes his claim, but in any case it isn’t surprising that Kara-Ali would make the attempt. The Qur’an tells Muslims: “You are the best nation produced for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong” (3:110), and says that unbelievers are “the most vile of created beings” (98:6). So why should one of the best of people have to submit to the laws of the most vile of created beings? Note also that he calls Australian officials “monkeys,” an epithet given to the disobedient Jews in the Qur’an (7:166).
