He calls Obama an “enemy of Islam,” which indicates that he hasn’t been paying very close attention. “Irish Muslim arrested in Dublin over Obama threats,” by Shawn Pogatchnik for AP, May 12 (thanks to Block Ness):
DUBLIN (AP) – Police arrested Ireland’s most notorious Muslim convert Thursday over his reported death threats against President Barack Obama.
Police said Khalid Kelly, a 44-year-old dubbed “Taliban Terry” by Dubliners, was arrested at his Dublin residence on suspicion of threatening to kill the U.S. leader. He could be held for up to three days before being charged or released….
Kelly was quoted as telling the newspaper that he expected al-Qaida to kill Obama during his visit to Ireland in part because the country’s police force is poorly armed. The article said Kelly would like to kill Obama himself but was too well-known to police here.
“Personally I would feel happy if Obama was killed. How could I not feel happy when a big enemy of Islam is gone?” Kelly was quoted as saying….
Kelly, a former Catholic altar boy from inner-city Dublin, converted to Islam while imprisoned in Saudi Arabia in 2000 for selling illegal alcohol.
He since has praised al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden on Irish TV, trained with the Taliban in northwest Pakistan and married a Pakistani woman, and has named one of their two sons Osama….
Upon his return to Dublin he declared his interest in founding an al-Qaida support group called Islam for Ireland, an idea denounced by the city’s Muslim community leaders.
Kelly says he seeks the imposition of strict Sharia law in Ireland, with public beheadings of drug dealers on Dublin’s main thoroughfare, O’Connell Street.
