A HATE fanatic has boasted that Muslims will one day conquer Britain — by having more BABIES.
Speaking at a rally marking 9/11, Anjem Choudary bragged that a birth explosion would let followers of Islam take control of the country.
Undercover Sun investigators secretly recorded Choudary telling a young and impressionable audience that they would eventually rule under strict Sharia law.
And our team listened in chilled silence as he predicted: "Islam is superior and will never be surpassed. The flag of Islam will rise over Downing Street."You need Flash Player 8 or higher to view video content with the ROO Flash Player. Click here to download and install it.
Lawyer Choudary also said it would be easy for vast numbers of Muslims to declare Jihad, or holy war, against Britain — and that every one of them could become "a time bomb waiting to go off".
The Sun team watched vile Choudary, the right-hand man of exiled preacher of hate Omar Bakri, ranting to 100 young Muslims at a meeting in East London.
The mob bayed and cheered as he said: "About 500 people in Britain become Muslim every day.
"The Home Office say there are 1.5million Muslims but there were 1.5million ten years ago. Since then our brothers in Bethnal Green, Whitechapel and other places have had eight or nine children each. Eight children here, ten children, 15 children. There must be at least six million people.
"It may be by pure conversion that Britain will become an Islamic state. We may never need to conquer it from the outside."
The rally — advertised as a debate on whether the West had "learned the lessons" of 9/11 — was held amid strict security in a hall above a mosque in Lea Bridge Road, Leyton. Stewards on the door demanded ID from non-Muslims.

Inside the atmosphere was tense as dozens of young men in their teens or 20s packed chairs at the front while the few women present were ushered to the back. Choudary — whose family live on £25,000 a year in benefits — whipped them into a frenzy with a speech calling for Sharia law, under which criminals and adulterers are stoned or have limbs amputated.
He roared: "We do not integrate into Christianity. We will ensure that one day you will integrate into the Sharia Islamic law. Our eyes are on Downing Street."
He went on: "That is why the British are so afraid. It would be easy for us to declare Jihad in Britain and each one of us could become a time-bomb waiting to go off. But we are not people who betray."
Choudary, who once called for the Pope to be executed and said the 9/11 hijackers were "magnificent martyrs", also claimed without a shred of evidence that 200 Muslim women were locked up in British jails.

Midway through the three-hour rally there was a break for prayers and food. The audience knelt on the floor and free chicken curry and bottles of water were handed out — but nobody ate or drank until a signal from chairman Abu Omar.
Another hate-filled speaker, Saiful Islam, praised terror chief Osama Bin Laden and al-Qaeda for their courage in retaliating against the West's "oppression".
He warned of a repeat of the 9/11 attacks in which more than 3,000 died in America, or another 7/7 suicide attack in London. He said: "The blame of 9/11 belongs to no one but the American government. They are the terrorists.
"Sheikh Osama warned America numerous times, it was because of their own arrogance, because they thought they are a superpower and nobody could match them, that Sheikh Osama taught them a lesson - a lesson they still haven't learned."

Referring to Iraq and Afghanistan, he warned the US and Britain: "Wake up. Withdraw. Listen. All of us have a part to play in stopping the violence or the next 9/11 will take place in Britain, the next 7/7 could take place locally."
The meeting was also addressed by law lecturer Abu Saalihah and there was a live webcam link to Omar Bakri at his Lebanon hideout.
Yesterday unrepentant Bakri said he could not understand what moderate Muslims have against Bin Laden.
He also dismissed 9/11 as "just an event" which was neither good nor bad but comparable to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Speaking from Beirut he said: "Osama Bin Laden is a legendary person for Muslims round the world."
Last night the meeting was condemned by moderate Muslims.
Iqbal Sacranie, ex-Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Great Britain, said: "Such outrageous and irresponsible comments are nothing new from the likes of Omar Bakri and his lot. These people know they do not represent the views of the vast majority, if not the entire community, of Muslims in the UK."
Last night Scotland Yard asked The Sun for a copy of our video showing Choudary and Islam's rants.
The Counter-Terrorism Command will study the footage. Sources stressed they had not launched a formal inquiry but one said: "We want to see if any laws were breached."

Muslim extremists have held a meeting at the heart of the area where the liquid bombers lived in which they warned of a British September 11.By Duncan Gardham, Security Correspondent

One speaker at the meeting, held on the anniversary of the attacks in America, told the assembled crowd that the West should "listen to the warnings."
The meeting, in front of a 100-strong crowd at a community centre on the Lea Bridge Road in Walthamstow, east London, was also addressed by the exiled preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed via video link from the Lebanon.
His appearance was greeted by cheers of "faith" and "god is great" as he claimed to have foiled a bomb plot against him by agents of the British Government, although much of his speech was inaudible due to technical difficulties.
Walthamstow was home to two of the three members of a gang found guilty of conspiracy to murder. They face a retrial over allegations they were targeting trans-Atlantic flights.
Among the speakers were a number of former members of the banned group al-Muhajiroun, once led by Bakri from his council home in Edmonton, North London.
The most incendiary speech was delivered by Saiful Islam, from Luton, Bedfordshire, who praised Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda for their "courage" in retaliating against the "dictatorship and oppression" of the West.
He said: "The blame of 9/11 belongs to no one but the American government. They are the terrorists. Sheikh Osama warned America numerous times, it was because of their own arrogance, because they thought they are a superpower and nobody could match them, that Sheikh Osama taught them a lesson – a lesson they still haven't learned."
Mr Islam warned that unless British and American troops were withdrawn from "Muslim lands" they would be to blame for the consequences, saying the West would "never achieve security until our own lands achieve security".
"Wake up. Withdraw. Listen to the warnings. Muslims will stand side to side, not just al Qaeda. The actions of the British and Americans have given prominence to al Qaeda. All of us have a part to play in stopping the violence or the next 9/11 will take place in Britain, the next 7/7 could take place locally," he added.
The meeting was led by the lawyer Anjem Choudary under the name of a group called the Association for Islamic Research.
He was the last to speak to the group of largely young Muslim men and criticised the Government for persecuting "innocent Muslims" including Syrian–born Bakri who was banned from re-entering the country in the wake of the July 7 attacks.
He also talked of the defendants in the airliner trial along with the jailed preachers Abu Hamza and Omar Brooks, another of Bakri's followers, as well as Abu Qatada, recently released on bail.
"They [the Government] say they are civilized but they don't act very civilized," Mr Choudary said. "They jailed Sheikh Abu Qatada in Belmarsh prison. Is that the way you treat your guests?"
He spoke against mainstream bodies like the Muslim Council of Britain, who condemned the September 11 and July 7 attacks, accusing them of "selling their souls to the devil".
Mr Choudary talked about the black "flag of Sharia" flying over Downing Street by 2020, saying 500 people a day were converting to Islam.
He laughed that Muslim families in places like Whitechapel and Bethnal Green in east London were having "10 or 12 children each".
Next 9/11 will be in Britain, warn banned Muslim extremists at meeting with exiled cleric BakriLast updated at 11:05am on 12.09.08 The Evening Standard (UK)
Voice of hate: Omar Mohammed Bakri spoke via video link from Lebanon
The next 9/11 will take place in Britain, members of a banned Muslim extremist group warned on the anniversary of the terror attacks.
The claim was made at a hate-filled meeting addressed via video link by exiled cleric Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed.
Leaders of the Al Muhajiroun sect said Osama bin Laden had taught the Americans a ‘lesson' seven years ago, but the ‘crusaders' had not learned and the next ‘9/11 will take place in Britain, the next 7/7 could take place locally'.
Radical preacher Bakri told a 100-strong audience of supporters in Walthamstow, east London, last night that he believed the British government was trying to assassinate him and claimed to have foiled a bomb plot.
Technical difficulties meant much of his speech was inaudible, but his appearance was greeted by cheers of ‘faith' and ‘god is great' at the community centre.
Bakri's right- hand man, Anjem Choudary, led the proceedings in person, under the auspices of a group called Association for Islamic Research.
The most incendiary speech was delivered by Saiful Islam, who lauded Bin Laden and al Qaeda for their ‘courage' in retaliating against the ‘dictatorship and oppression' of the West.
He said: ‘The blame of 9/11 belongs to no one but the American government. They are the terrorists. Sheikh Osama warned America numerous times, it was because of their own arrogance, because they thought they are a superpower and nobody could match them, that Sheikh Osama taught them a lesson - a lesson they still haven't learned.'
Mr Islam, who is linked to an organisation called Salafi Youth for Islamic Propagation, warned that unless British and American troops were withdrawn from ‘Muslim lands' they would be to blame for the consequences, saying the West would ‘never achieve security until our own lands achieve security'.
‘Wake up. Withdraw. Listen to the warnings. Muslims will stand side to side, not just al Qaeda. The actions of the British and Americans have given prominence to al Qaeda.
'All of us have a part to play in stopping the violence or the next 9/11 will take place in Britain, the next 7/7 could take place locally,' he added.
Mr Choudary was the last speaker and was more guarded in his address to the young Muslim men that made up most of the audience.
But he criticised the Government for persecuting ‘innocent Muslims', naming Bakri, Abu Hamza, Abu Qatada and Omar Brooks along with the defendants in the airliner bomb plot trial.
He said: ‘They say they are civilised. But they don't act very civilised. They jailed Sheikh Abu Qatada in Belmarsh prison. Is that the way you treat your guests?'
Mr Choudary then referred to Bakri's notorious aim of flying the ‘flag of Sharia' over Downing Street, claiming that this would happen by 2020 as 500 people a day were converting to Islam and laughing that Muslim families in places like Whitechapel and Bethnal Green in east London were having ‘10 or 12 children each'.
He ranted against mainstream bodies like the Muslim Council of Britain, who condemned 9/11 and 7/7, accusing them of ‘selling their souls to the devil'.
