Arrest Omar Bakri & Anjem Choudary now ! Al Muhajiroun leaders urged British Muslims to "kill and be killed" for Islam
Al Muhajiroun deputy Choudary : "it is an obligation for every Muslim to prepare themselves physically and mentally"
MIM: Note that Al Muhajiroun deputy Anjem Choudary came to the United States in 2000 at he invitation of the head of Al Muhajiroun spokesman Kamran Bokhari who ran the Muslim Student Association at Southwest Missouri State University. The University even subsidised the forum at which he appeared. While at SMSU Bokhari gave an interview where he referred to Bin Laden as being a 'scapegoat' for the US and called the founding fathers 'terrorists'.
Incredibly, Pakistani born Bokhari is now working as a strategic analyst at Strafor -Strategic Forecasting Inc.run by George Friedmann, who has said that he is glad to have Bokhari as an employee .
Bokhari and is affectionately referred to as their "in house Jihadi".
In 1996 Bokhari spoke in London at a rally held by Al Muhajiroun .
Choudary and Bakri was also there.
Nearly a decade later an article stated that ..."
"....During an interview earlier this year at a McDonald's in East London, Mr. Choudhary predicted there was a very high risk of a terror operation happening in the coming months.
London's Islamists unusually mum
By Seth Rosen
WASHINGTON -- London's notoriously outspoken Islamists, a media-savvy faction who have publicly praised the September 11 hijackers and called for Islamic law in Britain, have fallen unusually silent since Thursday's rush-hour attack on commuters.
Now Is The Time To Move Against The Islamists!
By Beila Rabinowitz, Special to PipeLineNews
July 7, 2005 - Osceola County, FLA - PipeLineNews - The terror attacks which the British government had stated were inevitable have finally taken place; as the authorities have pointed out, there may be more to come.
What commentators have so far failed to take note of, was that viable threats were already there before the attack.
They have been there, in some cases for years.
As recently as two months ago, Omar Bakri Mohammed, the head of the al-Qaeda support group Al Muhajiroun, exhorted his followers to wage jihad against the UK.
"...Muslims living in Britain are facing two choices; either to migrate or to join the jihad…And I declare we should ourselves join the global Islamic camp against the global crusade camp…the response from the Muslims will be horrendous if the British government continues in the way it treats Muslims," he said, adding that suicide bombings were a possibility.
Bakri is still a free man in the UK, and though he "officially disbanded" his group at the same time he urged them to go "freelance."
It is highly probable to speculate that members of Al Muhajiroun will have heeded Bakri's call to engage in jihad and be found to have been involved in today's terrorist attacks.
Bakri called on Muslims to form a new coalition united behind al-Qaeda with Osama Bin Laden as their leader. This jihadi group would replace Al-Muhajiroun, which is no longer needed, he said. By dissolving such parties the Muslim community will have to come together, and as the judge of the Sharia court in Britain, he is the one to unite them, he added.
Though these developments were reported in the media neither Bakri nor his followers are in prison.
To make matters worse, supporters of groups such as Al Qaeda, Hamas, and Al Muhajiroun have been afforded a quasi-diplomatic status in Britain.
One of those groups, the Muslim Council of Britain is a carbon copy of the American Islamist lobby, Council on American Islamic Relations [CAIR].
The Muslim Council of Britain is al-Qaeda. Yet the Muslim Council's Iqbal Sacranie, was knighted by the Queen last week.
In 1996 Iqbal Sacrani,e who was then a spokesman for the U.K. Committee on Islamic Affairs, pushed for the entry of Bin Laden and other terrorists into the UK on the grounds that "they were Muslim scholars." He also threatened leaders of the UK Jewish Community who were attempting to get Al Muhajiroun's Rally for Revival cancelled.
"The Board of Deputies of British Jews should seriously consider what action they take on this matter because of the detrimental effect on community relations which could result. Taking a hostile view towards scholars who wish to come to this country to present their points of view at a conference will not serve good community relations..." - The Jewish Chronicle (30.08.96)
Taking advantage of the UK's multicultural idiocy, the terror supporters in the UK are in fact, being regarded as 'mainstream' and respected representatives of the Muslim community.
The only way in which future attacks can be thwarted is if the public and law enforcement will face the fact that in reality, there are fewer moderate Muslims than one might hope for and that many Muslim organizations have proven ties to terror related entities.
In short, a readiness to identify the enemy and call it by its name is the conditione sine qua non for fighting terrorism.
The people who are behind these organizations do not make a secret of where their loyalties lie and their true agendas.
Terrorists rightly saw Britain as a safe haven more then a decade ago. It has been speculated that the British did not take action against them in the hope that Muslims would regard themselves as "having a covenant of peace" with the UK and not attack their "host" country.
The UK government's failure to realize that the covenant of peace was contingent on total submission and has resulted in the carnage we have seen today.
The question remains of how many more lives will be lost until the UK takes preemptive action to give credibility to the words of Prime Minister Tony Blair - who stated that "freedom from terrorism is the greatest civil liberty."
Neither civilization nor liberty can coexist with radical Islam. There can be no civil rights for people who aid and abet terrorists.
Islamists have taken the Clausewitz maxim of "diplomacy is a continuation of war by another means" and turned it into "diplomacy is the Trojan Horse of jihad"
In his book "Infiltration" Paul Sperry stated that we can only defeat terrorism if we stop hacking at the branches and start striking at the roots.
This means shutting down offending mosques and Islamic Centers and arresting those who openly declare their intent to perpetrate attacks, or who have undergone training abroad.
Today's attacks stem from a failure to identify and move against the enemy and by rewarding the terror-supporting fifth columnists.
The fight against radical Islam is a life and death struggle, unless it is waged with at least as much determination as the jihadists have shown, the West will commit politically correct suicide by surrendering to their deception.
