“El-Faisal quoted Osama bin Laden and called on his supporters to kill non-Muslims using not only guns and bombs, but also chemical and nuclear weapons.”
“El-Faisal’s supporters continued to insist he was a man of peace even after his imprisonment.”

“Preacher of hate booted out of Britain is picked up in Kenya,” by David Gardner for the Daily Mail, January 3 (thanks to Kris):
A preacher of hate who was booted out of Britain has been arrested by anti-terror police in Kenya.
Abdullah el-Faisal, 45, was seized on New Year’s Eve after speaking at a Mombasa mosque.
The fanatical Muslim cleric was jailed for nine years in Britain in 2003 after being convicted of incitement to murder and stirring racial hatred by urging followers to kill Hindus, Jews and Americans.
He had his sentence cut to seven years on appeal and became eligible for parole after serving half his term.
He was deported to his native Jamaica immediately after being released from prison in 2007.
Police in Kenya said El-Faisal had violated the terms of his tourist visa by preaching in mosques. He was arrested for allegedly breaching immigration regulations.
In response to this news, Islamic groups have pledged full and open cooperation with anti-terror efforts — no, wait:
An Islamic human rights group blasted the move last night.
‘This is curtailing Sheikh Faisal’s freedoms of expression and association in a very discriminative manner that is totally unacceptable,’ said Al-Amin Kimathi, chairman of the Muslim Human Rights Forum….
The Whitechapel, East London-based cleric described non-believers as ‘cockroaches’ ripe for extermination. He also promised schoolboys they would be rewarded with 72 virgins in paradise if they died for their beliefs.
In extracts heard at the Old Bailey, El-Faisal quoted Osama bin Laden and called on his supporters to kill non-Muslims using not only guns and bombs, but also chemical and nuclear weapons.
‘The way forward can never be the ballot. The way forward is the bullet. You have to learn how to shoot, how to fly planes, drive tanks, load your guns and use missiles,’ he said in his speeches.
Before his arrest in 2003, he preached at a mosque attended by both shoebomber Richard Reid and an alleged 9/11 conspirator.
He also admitted sharing a platform with hook-handed Muslim cleric Abu Hamza, who was called to testify in his defence.
El-Faisal’s supporters continued to insist he was a man of peace even after his imprisonment. His lawyers claimed he was ‘misguided not malicious.’
Of course! He’s a Misunderstander of Islam!
