CBS A radical Islamic activist and lawyer in the U.K. has called on Muslims worldwide to burn U.S. flags outside American embassies on Sept. 11, a “direct retaliation” against a Florida church’s plan to burn Qurans on the same day.
Anjem Choudary, former leader of the banned hardline Islamic group Islam4UK, told CBS News in London he was calling for, “an international burn the Stars and Stripes day” on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Choudary, who regularly organizes small demonstrations in Britain calling for the implementation of Islamic law, was the first public figure — and a likely one — to call for retaliation against Gainesville, Fla. Reverend Terry Jones’ plans to burn at least 100 Qurans.
