He is broadcasting this hatred and incitement to violence into Britain. Do British authorities ever consider the possibility that he might be convincing people? As you can see below, what he says has ready support in the Qur’an and Islamic tradition. Are British officials aware of that, or are they too busy keeping opponents of jihad terror out of the country?
A hate preacher who accused of radicalising the 7/7 bombers is now recruiting British jihadis for Islamic State, the Mirror can reveal.
Abdullah al-Faisal, who met both suicide bomber Germaine Lindsey and his jihadi wife Samantha Lewthwaite, spent four years in jail in the UK for soliciting murder but since his release in 2007 fled to his native Jamaica.
Ten years on from the London terror attacks, al-Faisal is broadcasting almost daily online rants to thousands of followers – including many Brits.
He heaps praise on the ISIS caliphate in Syria and Iraq and is feared to have brainwashed many impressionable young Muslims living in the West to travel there to join in jihad.
He claimed: “Some people are so sinful, after living in Dar ul-Harb (the West) for many years, the only way they can go to Paradise is for them to die on the battlefield fighting for Allah.
Dar al-harb does not actually mean “the West.” It means “house of war.”
“When you go to the battlefield and you kill the kuffar (non-Muslims), they shall take your place in the hellfire.”
He makes no attempt to shy away from the horrific atrocities ISIS militants commit in the name of religion – and even seeks to praise and justify them.
Al-Faisal defended the horrific mass-beheadings of ISIS opponents saying: “The Muslims of Iraq have many cities to conquer.
“If they take captives, they will slow them down and resources will be wasted on them because they will have to be fed and watched over. It is cheaper to kill them and get over it. The food we have is for the mujahideen not for the Kuffaar.”
“It is not for a prophet to have captives until he inflicts a massacre in the land.” (Qur’an 8:67)
In another lecture last month, al-Faisal justified ISIS taking Yazidi women and children slaves and selling them “in the marketplace at an auction like you auction cattle”. He said: “These women are spoils of war – you don’t have to marry your spoils of war to go to bed with them.
“O Prophet! We have made lawful to you your wives to whom you have paid dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses of those whom Allah has given you as spoils of war…” (Qur’an 33:50)
He attacked ideas like “Islamic democracy” and even claimed there was no such thing as “marital rape”: “It is not marital rape if it is done playfully. It is only rape if it is done violently.”
A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460).
And: “By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel’s saddle” (Ibn Majah 1854).
But he shied away from openly providing practical help to followers wanting to travel to Iraq and Syria, telling one: “I cannot help people go to the dawla (Islamic State). I am the worst person to ask this question.
“All of my communications are bugged by the kuffar, so you will get caught if I instruct you about going to the dawla. Find someone in the dawla to ask this question.”
Abdullah al-Faisal was named by former Home Secretary John Reid as a “strong influence” on the 7/7 bombers, including ringleader Mohammed Siddique Khan and Germaine Lindsay. He admits meeting Lindsay and his widow Samantha Lewthwaite – the “White Widow” – but denied radicalising them….
