Milo Yiannopoulos has been involved in a fiery clash with an Australian Muslim who claimed the right-wing mischief-maker ‘doesn’t know one thing about Islam’.
The controversial author and political commentator was told he was ‘off his head’ by a caller during his appearance on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show on Thursday.
‘He doesn’t know one thing about Islam… mate, you don’t know what you are talking about… Islam is about peace, it’s about love. You’re just full of s***,’ the called railed.
‘You’re saying men can… rape little nine-year-olds. Where do you get that? Were you drunk and dancing with the fairies? Where does it say in the Koran that can happen?’

Milo Yiannopoulos was told he was ‘off his head’ by a Muslim Australian caller during his appearance on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show on Thursday
The caller claimed the right-wing mischief-maker ‘doesn’t know one thing about Islam’
‘You are nothing but a sheep… You’re a disgrace to society… Get your facts right before you open your mouth you little peasant.’
Sandilands agreed that Islam is a peaceful religion before Yiannopoulos had his say.
‘No it isn’t,’ Yiannopoulos replied. ‘Because the Koran is big and self-contradictory like all long complicated books, Koranic scholars came up with a way to reconcile some of the internal contradictions.
‘So what Koranic scholars have come up with is abrogation. The chronological order in which the verses were revealed to Mohammad – stuff that came later supersedes stuff that came earlier.

‘You are nothing but a sheep… You’re a disgrace to society,’ the caller said of Yiannopoulos
‘Well unfortunately the abrogated verses, the verses that have been superseded, are the peace, love and understanding ones.
‘The ones that were revealed to him later when he was a warlord are the kill the unbeliever, death to the – you know -whatever, verses… those bits, according to Islamic scholars, take precedence over the peaceful bits.
‘Muslims are encouraged to live by the example laid down by the founder Mohammad, who of course had a wife of nine years old, but he waited to have sex with until she was 12 I think, good on him.
‘You’re caller is sadly misinformed about his own religion.’

Yiannopoulos later reiterated his position that all Muslims should be banished from the West.
‘If you are a Muslim you should go live somewhere where that is the law of the land,’ he said.
Yiannopoulos has promised to offend with intentionally provocative dialogue during his seven-show Australian tour.
‘The ultimate sin of contemporary culture is ”niceness”. Everybody trying to be nice and sweet and not offend each other,’ he told Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday.

Milo has a busy media schedule during his week-long tour, despite his claims high-profile journalist refuse to interview him. He his pictured here speaking to Alan Jones on 2GB Radio
‘When someone turns around to me and says they are offended or upset by something I’ve said, I will tell a joke twice as offensive.
‘Or I will make it twice as uncomfortable for them because I don’t give a s*** about people’s feelings.’
He has previously likened feminism to cancer, Islam to AIDS and has spoken out against gay rights and the Black Lives Matter movement – despite being openly homosexual and married to an African American man.
He has been banned from entering government buildings in Western Australia and the Greens have officially requested his invitation to speak at Parliament House be revoked.

Daily Mail Australia understands the first show of his tour was cancelled because the owner of the venue didn’t agree with his outspoken views.
But Yiannopoulos denied that was the case and said ‘it was just one of those things’ and there was ‘nothing untoward’.
Yiannopoulos has sold 10,000 tickets for his speaking tour of Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, the Gold Coast and Adelaide.
The venues are being kept secret until 24 hours before he appears for the two-hour shows, with Yiannopoulos claiming if he reveals the locations journalists will ‘invent’ stories about protests.

WHO IS MILO YIANNOPOULOS?
WHERE IS HE FROM?
* The 33-year-old was raised in Kent, England, and attended Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys in Canterbury.
WHAT HAS HE DONE?
* Dropped out of undergraduate courses at the University of Manchester and the University of Cambridge.

* He was banned from Twitter in July 2016 for ‘inciting or engaging in the targeted abuse or harassment of others’, after allegedly leading a harassment campaign on the site against Ghostbusters actor Leslie Jones.
* In February, video clips came to light in which Yiannopoulos appeared to defend sexual relationships between men and boys as young as 13.
The remarks prompted publisher Simon & Schuster to cancel his planned book, ‘Dangerous’. Yiannopoulos, who said he never intended to suggest sexual abuse of minors is OK, also stood down from Breitbart News.

WHAT IS HE DOING IN AUSTRALIA?
* Yiannopoulos is doing a national speaking tour, presented by Penthouse magazines, between November 30 and December 7.
* Among his commitments down under is a Q&A event at Parliament House, hosted by Liberal Democrat senator David Leyonhjelm. The Greens have demanded he be banned from the event, describing him as ‘an individual who has become notorious for his racist, sexist and abusive behaviour’.
* Earlier this week Yiannopoulos criticised Channel 10’s The Project and Studio 10 and Channel 9’s Today Show for being ‘frightened’ to debate him, after they allegedly cancelled planned interviews.
