UK shops to receive Charlie Hebdo magazine despite radical cleric calling it an “act of war”

The latest edition is published a week after many of the Charlie Hebdo editorial team were massacred in an attack at their Paris office which saw terrorist brothers Said and Cherif Kouachi kill 12 people.

Radical cleric Mr Choudary said “ridiculing” Mohammed is attacking his personality, and said these actions are “extremely serious”, adding that if the “act of war” was to be tried in a Shariah Court it would carry capital punishment.

“It’s not just a cartoon, it’s insulting, it’s ridiculing, it’s provoking,” he said.

The lecturer in Shariah law, who was arrested in September as part of an investigation into Islamist terrorism, added: “These things always have a history of coming back and biting them. People are not going to forget. Muslims will never forget what these people did.

“And I’m sure there’s someone somewhere who will take the law into his own hands. It’s inevitable.

“There will be repercussions. I think there will be someone somewhere who will retaliate”…


Is that a threat?
