UK: Anjem Choudary Charged With Supporting Islamic State

Anjem Choudary, one of the most outspoken and provocative Islamists in Britain today, has been remanded in custody, charged with the terrorism offense of encouraging people to join the Islamic State.

The charge is related to Choudary sending messages to his nearly 33,000 followers on Twitter, allegedly encouraging them to join the Islamic State — the radical Sunni Islamist group that has taken control over large parts of Syria and Iraq, and has threatened to attack targets in Europe and North America.

The effort to prosecute Choudary — well known for his relentless efforts to implement Islamic Sharia law in the UK — indicates that the British government intends to follow through on its recent pledge to crack down on radical Islam in the country.

    Might be too little too late, I offer as example Lee Rigby.

    Sadly a much more significant story was the arrest of a man for threatening to burn an ISIS flag in Scotland. How could anybody even Muslims object to the burning of the flag of depraved sadists? Why aren’t Muslims themselves burning ISIS flags outside their mosques to protest the atrocities done in their name?

    This from a post about it:

    “This is the reality of today’s Britain. Because of mass Muslim
    immigration we cannot even be united in opposition to the clearest example of
    evil that the world has ever known.

    That such an unambiguously right thing as the burning of the flag of
    evil is against the law indicates just how low we are. Just how close we now
    are to that final drop.”

    • That is so sick.

        That’s nothing. Just wait till next week’s news!

  • Once a wild fire gets out of control, the fight to contain the flames goes up dramatically.

    Getting rid of Anjem Choudary is an almost too late start. The Brits are going to need a lot more water.
