Some are calling to close it down. Why have the British dhimmis allowed it to broadcast for this long? “Calls to close ‘dissident’ radio,” from The Evening Standard, with thanks to Dave Washburn:
The Government is facing demands to close down a London-based radio station broadcasting calls for attacks on British troops in Iraq.
Al-Tajdeed Radio, which is run by a prominent Saudi dissident, has close links with a website carrying films of terrorist bombings and beheadings. It also carries songs calling on Muslims to join the holy war against coalition forces.
The radio broadcasts in Iraq and Saudi Arabia. The man behind the station is Dr Muhammad al-Massari.
He has lived in London since first seeking asylum there in 1994. He has frequently declared that British troops in Iraq are legitimate targets.
Patrick Mercer, shadow minister for homeland security, said the Government should close down the station and look at deporting Dr al-Massari.
He said the broadcasts were demoralising for British troops in Iraq.
“To hear jihad talk, albeit in Arabic, being broadcast out to Iraq where you are trying to do your job as a soldier, a policeman or whatever, I think it must be desperately demoralising,” he said.
“It should be closed down.”
Gee, you think so?
