Terrorist sympathiser Sayful Islam defends his cowardly attack on Baroness Warsi. His organisation, Islam4UK, is a front for al-Muhajiroun - Omar Bakri’s group.
One of the ringleaders of the attack on Saeeda Warsi this week defended himself on the Today programme this morning. Sayful Islam, long exposed as an extremist living off the the British taxpayer, had said of the September 11th terrorist attacks:
“When I watched those planes go into the Twin Towers I felt elated.”
That was in 2004; today he said of the egg-throwing:
“I don’t regret anything, obviously if Islam permits it I would never condemn anybody for what they do.
“I mean, we can see people like Saeeda Warsi, she is always supporting the British troops, now if she’s somebody that claims to represent this Muslim nation, then she would never side with the disbelievers against the Muslims, this is something fundamental in Islam that we know, that we always support and ally with the Muslims, regardless of obviously what their stance and opinions are we always stand with them.”
Sayful, who has been denounced by the Muslim community as an extremist, is the self-styled spokesman for Islam4UK, a front for firebrand cleric Omar Bakri and Anjem Choudary’s al-Muhajiroun – a fact conceded by Islam4UK, though access to their website now appears to be blocked.
The group, whose support has been exaggerrated in the past, was forced to cancel a “March for Sharia” through London in October. Their aim is to create a global Islamic empire or caliphate governed by Sharia.Like this article?
