“Hate speech” laws are only for opponents of jihad, doncha know. “Hate preacher Anjem Choudary will not be prosecuted for urging followers to claim ‘Jihad Seeker’s Allowance,'” by Richard Hartley-parkinson for the Daily Mail, March 28 (thanks to Block Ness):
A controversial Muslim cleric will not face action despite telling his followers to claim benefits and saying David Cameron should be killed.
Telling fellow fanatics to claim ‘jihad seeker’s allowance’, Anjem Choudary, who in the past has planned to disrupt the minute’s silence on Remembrance Sunday, also openly mocked hard-working Britons, calling them ‘slaves’.
The Sun newspaper secretly filmed him saying Islam will overrun Europe, David Cameron and Barack Obama should be killed, and called the Queen ‘ugly’.
The newspaper gave its evidence to the authorities, but Thames Valley Police today said: ‘The material fell below an evidential threshold to pursue a criminal case against him.’
After the incident, Choudary said he had been ‘joking’ and his words had been misconstrued. He also maintained that Osama Bin Laden was his ‘hero’.
The father-of-four takes home more than Â£25,000 a year in benefits and lives in a Â£320,000 house in Leytonstone, East London.
He told a crowd of around 30 fanatics: ‘People will say, “Ah, but you are not working”. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar (non-Muslim).
‘So we take jihad seeker’s allowance. You need to get support.’
In another video a grinning Choudary is recorded telling his disciples that it is justifiable to take money from non-believers.
He said: ‘The normal situation is to take money from the kuffar. You work, give us the money, Allahu Akhbar (God is great). Hopefully there’s no one from the DSS listening to this.’
He also called Mr Cameron, Mr Obama and the leaders of Pakistan and Egypt the ‘shaitan’, or devil, and said he wanted them to be killed.
Choudary spoke glowingly of the 9/11 attacks and urged his followers to have ‘hate’ in their hearts for core British concepts like democracy, freedom and freedom of religion.
The 45-year-old former lawyer added: ‘We are going to take England “” the Muslims are coming. Brussels is 30 per cent, 40 per cent Muslim and Amsterdam. Bradford is 17 per cent Muslim.
‘These people are like a tsunami going across Europe. And over here we’re just relaxing, taking over Bradford brother. The reality is changing.’…
