When I was growing up, Muftis and Muslim clerics in general had no problem in meeting with unveiled women. My mother dressed Western style and in sleeveless dresses and it never offended Musa As-Sadr when he visited us or her cousins Abdullah Al-`Alayli or his brother Mukhtar Al-`Alayli (the latter was a candidate for Mufti in Lebanon). The notion that you have to be veiled to meet a cleric is an import from lousy Saudi Wahhabi regime. This Mufti deserves only humiliating for agreeing to meet with an anti-Islam, anti-Semitic far right politician. Shame on him, and I wish she slapped him.
