An Islamic fundamentalist lawyer has said Ireland is a “legitimate” target for a terrorist attack.
Anjem Choudary, speaking at a debate Thursday at Dublin’s Trinity College, claimed Ireland was open to attack because of the government’s decision to allow U.S. troops to refuel at Shannon Airport, the Irish Independent reported Friday.
“If you are going to allow your country to be used to refuel a U.S. plane which is going on a bombing raid, what do you expect our reaction to be? This is not neutrality,” he said.
“A U.S. pilot is no different from the Irish person who allows the plane to land. They are collaborators,” said Choudary, who is under police surveillance in Britain.
Another Muslim extremist, Umran Javed, told the debate that although he did not see an attack on Ireland as likely, retaliation would come “swiftly” if Ireland increased its support for the United States….
Senior Irish police are studying Choudary’s remarks to determine if they represent an incitement to hatred.
Study hard, fellows, but heavens to betsy, everyone knows that such remarks are not an “incitement to hatred.” It’s only an incitement to hatred when someone calls attention to them in the name of the defense of human rights against jihad terror. Got it?
