Banned Islamic terrorist group, Al Muhajiroun, exploits government loophole to reorganize under new hate-filled guise.
Al-Muhajiroun leader, Anjem Choudary, said “Britons were filthy and had lessons to learn from history.”
Britain’s most notorious group of Islamic fanatics has exploited a Home Office(Ah yes, notorious terrorist-sympathizer, Jacqui Smith’s old stomping ground) loophole to reform. Al Muhajiroun, originally run by hate preacher Omar Bakri, disbanded five years ago before it could be banned by the Government. Ministers then outlawed the group’s two successor organisations – Al-Ghurabaa and the Saved Sect – but not Al Muhajiroun itsel, as it was no longer in existence.
Now the fanatics behind the organisation have exploited this decision to reform in their original hate-filled guise. In the past, the group Al Muhajiroun has sparked controversy after calling for Sharia law in Britain and referring to the 9/11 terrorists as the ‘Magnificent 19.’ Leader Anjem Choudary led chants before saying the night was a ‘victory for Osama Muslims’
One in seven offenders convicted for terror-related offences in the UK in the last ten years have allegedly had links with the extremist radical organisation. Bakri’s former spokesman Anjem Choudary, himself a hate-filled extremist, is behind the reformation.
He boasted: ‘Al-Muhajiroun is not an illegal organisation. It has never been banned by the Home Office under the Terrorism Act.’ Al-Muhajiroun was branded illegal and demonised when it simply was not true and the prosecution have tried to use this to their advantage in a lot of court cases.’
He denied playing any part in the radicalisation of young Muslims but said he saw nothing wrong in British Asians who have been brought up in this country going off to fight against our troops for the Taliban in Afghanistan.
He said: ‘I would not go out there but others have done to fight alongside their brother and sisters who have become victims of atrocities. It is the British government who are the terrorists.’
Campaigners immediately demanded the reformed group should be banned by Home Secretary Alan Johnson.
Baroness Pauline-Neville Jones said: ‘This is going to be a test of whether the Government is serious about proscribing organisations which espouse extremism or incite violence or hatred against people, be they British or from overseas.’ (I think we know the answer to that)
Former prime minister Tony Blair pledged to ban the group four years ago, but it was never outlawed while two splinter groups, Al Gurabaa and the Saviour Sect, were proscribed. Al Muhajiroun was formed by radical preacher Omar Bakri Muhammad, who was later kicked out of Britain.
Mr Choudary’s followers provoked outrage in Luton earlier this year when they protested against soldiers returning from Iraq.
A Home Office spokesman said: ‘Proscription is a tough but necessary power to tackle terrorism. ‘Decisions on proscription must be proportionate and based on evidence that a group is concerned in terrorism as defined in the Terrorism Act 2000. (I dunno, preaching terrorism in the streets, calling for the overthrow of the British government and spitting on British troops should be a good indication) UK DAILY MAIL
