Extremist thug “doesn’t regret” egg-attack on Baroness Warsi

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.

    There’s more chance of me opening a lap dancing club in Mecca then there is of a global Islamic empire coming to fruition.

    well it was your lot that let them all in and your lot that lets them feed off the taxpayer and your lot that led to the rise of the bnp

    I’m not able to go through your archive, but is this the first piece about Islamic extremism in your extensive archive under the ‘Racism and Extremism’ title? Just asking.

    On the subject of the Caliphate, I wonder what you make of Osama Saeed, an SNP candidate for the coming election? He has called for the establishment of a Caliphate – there’s no getting away from it, however much he tries to depict it as a kind of liberal Muslim version of the EU.

    And while we’re on the subject of Scotland, a bit of self-criticism from the Left over the STUC’s call for Celtic fans to wave Palestinian flags at tonight’s match against Tel-Aviv would not go amiss. It is, quite simply, an attempt to fan the flames of sectarianism in Scotland and in Israel/Palestine. Would they have asked Rangers fans to do the same? I doubt it.

    Wouldn’t be the first time that gay-baiting nutjob got egg on her face; can’t say I’m sorry to see it.

    If Britain attacked a Christian country I would be pissed, I cant see how she can call herself Muslim and support the killing of her fellow Muslims.

    Dave – the people egging her are true gay-haters and serious nutjobs. I don’t like Warsi’s politics but I prefer them to those of these Islamist wackos.

    Church going guy – what a weird outlook on the world you have. You do realise that the Islamist scum of Islam4UK – like all Islamist extremists – support acts of terrorism that kill Muslims? In their eyes only they are true Muslims.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Rory – we’ve covered Islamic extremism on a number of occasions. For example:



    Dave – I think your comments is a bit close to breaching our comments policy: http://www.leftfootforward.org/about

    hono – this character (who has the support of about 10 people) was born in Britain 24 years ago. Whose “lot” let him in then?
