About time. From the New York Times, :
LONDON, Jan. 24 – In nightly sermons broadcast on the Internet, Sheik Omar Bakri Muhammad, a 46-year-old Syrian-born cleric, has urged young Muslim men all over the world to support the Iraq insurgency on the front line of “the global jihad,” investigators say.
In an amazing display of brazen deception, one Islamic apologist claimed that I had fabricated this when I posted it here a couple of weeks ago. I suppose the Times picked it up from me, eh?
He struck a similarly defiant tone this month at a rally attended by 500 people at a central London meeting hall, where a giant screen behind him showed images of the World Trade Center falling. “Allah akbar!” – “God is great” – some audience members shouted at the images.
After eavesdropping for months on his nightly praise of the Sept. 11 hijackers and of suicide bombings, Scotland Yard said last week that it was investigating Sheik Omar, the leader of Al Muhajiroun, Britain’s largest Muslim group, and officials are exploring whether they can deport him. “We’re fed up with him,” said a senior British official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “He needs to be stopped, or he needs to go.”
