RADICAL cleric Anjem Choudary sparked fury today by declaring he ‘doesn’t accept’ that British law is valid in the UK.
The 46-year-old hate preacher made the extraordinary statement when asked if jihadist fighters returning from Syria should have their passports confiscated and be charged under anti-terror laws.
Choudary blasted: “I don’t accept British law. If you have a law, you need to apply it universally. These laws are only being applied against Muslims. (Thats because muslims are the biggest terrorists!!)
“This [anti-terror legislation] is purely being hyped-up to support the bombing campaign that is taking place in Iraq and Syria.”
He also spoke of his support for Islamic State (ISIS) and claimed a ban on jihadists returning to Britain would ‘alienate’ the Muslim community.
He added: “If these guys have actually not committed any crime in England, then why are we stopping them returning? (Because they fought with and supported ISIS a designated terrorist organization)
“I think it’s a very ill thought-out policy, I don’t think it will work.
“I think it will disenfranchise the Muslim community here, I think it would be a cause of further radicalisation in this country.”
Choudary has always denied that he has incited or glorified acts of terrorism.
(Hey look….this guy has a target on his head. I sure hope others see it.)
