Not that this has anything to do with Islam.
“Terror target Harry arrives back in Britain as Al Qaeda threatens to take revenge for ‘royal aggression against Muslims,'” from the Daily Mail (thanks to Sr. Soph):
Prince Harry arrived back in Britain this morning after having been warned that serving in Afghanistan made him a prime target for terrorists.
Muslim extremists say the young royal is a “legitimate target” after ten weeks secretly fighting the Taliban.
Two Al Qaeda-affiliated websites are calling on jihadists to “slaughter” the third in line to the throne.
Concerns about Harry’s safety were deepened when firebrand preacher Anjem Choudhary, of the extremist Al Muhajiroun group, accused him of endorsing an “illegal war”.
He said: “I think it is inevitable that anyone who engages in these activities is going to draw attention to themselves. He will be seen as part of the enemy and so he is a target.
“For Harry to participate has absolutely no justification. For people to say he is being brave and doing his job is simply wrong.
“Many wiser and braver men have decided not to participate and have objected and demonstrated against these wars. They should be the ones declared as heroes.”
Hate preacher Omar Bakri, now in Lebanon, said: “Harry should condemn the fact that British forces are in a strange land fighting strange people who speak a different language.”
But many worshippers arriving for Friday prayers at London’s Regent’s Park mosque praised the prince.
Accountant Adham Adam, 42, said: “I am against the war and Britain going there but Prince Harry is just doing his duty.
“I hope extremists will not target him because they don’t have the right. I don’t believe in extremist Islam. They are not doing good things for Muslim Brits.”
Sheriff Folami, 65, said: “It shows he is an honourable person. It shows he is a true prince.” Hussein Elazghal, 74, echoed the sentiment, adding: “It is very courageous that he is doing his duty. He is a British citizen and he is doing his service.”
Hotel manager Nesar Siddiqui, however, said: 2I would be more comfortable if Harry wasn’t there. There were legitimate reasons to go to Bosnia, but in Afghanistan there are not those reasons.”
Catherine Heseltine of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee warned that many might find Harry’s “glorification” of war offensive. She said: “It is not the way to talk about a war where so many Muslims have lost their lives – men, women and children, innocent civilians. It is not an adventure, it is not exciting.”…
