Anjem Choudary said those who insulted Islam would be “subject to capital punishment”. His remarks came during a protest outside Westminster Cathedral on a day that worldwide anger among Muslim hardliners towards Pope Benedict XVI appeared to deepen.Choudary’s appeal for the death of Pope Benedict was the second time he has been linked with apparent incitement to murder within a year. [And he’s still walking around freely while treading on the rights of others? Wake up Londonistan.]The 39-year-old lawyer organised demonstrations against the publication of cartoons of Mohammed in February in Denmark. Protesters carried placards declaring “Behead Those Who Insult Islam“. Yesterday he said: “The Muslims take their religion very seriously and non-Muslims must appreciate that and that must also understand that there may be serious consequences if you insult Islam and the prophet. As well as placards attacking the Pope such as “Pope go to Hell“, his followers outside the country’s principal Roman Catholic church also waved slogans aimed at offending the sentiments of Christians such as “Jesus is the slave of Allah“. Yesterday’s sermon by the Pope was the first time a pontiff has publicly said sorry. Anger and violence – including attacks on seven churches in the West Bank and Gaza – have characterised one of the biggest international crises involving the Vatican in decades. Iraqi jihadists issued a video of a scimitar slicing a cross in two, intercut with images of Benedict and the burning Twin Towers. The website run in the name of the Mujahedeen Army, used by Muslims who have claimed responsibility for attacks in Iraq, was addressed to “You dog of Rome” and threatened to “shake your thrones and break your crosses in your home“. In a reference to suicide bombing, it said: “We swear to God to send you people who adore death as much as you adore life.”
Folks, the perpetual outrage of Muslims is more proof that Islam, at its core, is lethally militaristic and institutionalizes homicide. The Pope is being targetted not only for what he said in a speech, but for not being a Muslim. The Pope is being targetted for believing in a god that forbids killing except in self-defense. The Pope is being targetted for defending values that do not exist in Islam. The Pope is being targetted simply for existing. Holding a grudge against the Pope is just another excuse to set yet another region in flames. Islam can’t shed its pathology. Muslim selective indignation and projection towards non-Muslims on the matter of terror and mass murder is, quite frankly, repulsively hypocritical . The same Muslims that stamp their feet, whine and complain that Muslims are being victimised by the Pope or by the Great Satan or by Israel, are totally silent when Muslims exterminate and threaten to exterminate other cultures. I worry that it is too late for countries to do something to prevent jihad from within but I do believe that the world is beginning to see what Islam is and what it is not.
