Choice Quotes From Muslim Radical On Trial In England

Image hosted by Photobucket.comAccording to the London Telegraph, Muslim preacher, 47-year old Abu Hamza,
who was born in Egypt and has lived in Britain for several years as a British citizen, is accused of nine counts of soliciting to murder, four counts of using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour and two counts of possessing abusive recordings with a view to distribution and possession of a document useful to preparing terrorism.
According to the story, Hamza's apartment contained plans to blow of Big Ben, skyscrapers, airports and football stadiums.

Most disturbing to me are recordings of Hamza's preaching and teaching. The Telegraph article includes the following citations:

In one speech, delivered to a meeting in Whitechapel, east London, in 1997 or 1998 Hamza said the role of women should be to encourage their husbands to train children as young as 10 so they could become mujahadeen (holy warriors).

In a tape aimed at young people he said: “When you meet Allah you will be asked who was killed at your hands?”

Britain and Western nations were “100 per cent anti-Islam”, he said in another tape, calling on his followers to spread Islam “by the sword” and adding: “European leaders only respect those that are strong.”

He said: “Killing the kafir for any reason is OK, killing the kafir for no reason is OK,” and he specifically singled out those that granted licences for “wine shops”.

Hamza added: “We like blood and are addicted to it. When they say they love Allah they must ask themselves how much kafir blood they have spilt for Allah.”

Describing non-believers as “germs and viruses” in another tape he added: “There is no drop of liquid loved by Allah more than blood of Serbs, Jews or any other enemy of Allah.”
If you are wondering what a "kafir" is, it probably means you! Any person who refuses to submit himself to Allah (God), who disbelieves in the message of Mohammed and in Mohammed as the Prophet of God is a "kafir."

Isn't it nice to know that God loves your blood? Especially when it has been happily and blessedly shed by a follower of someone like Hamza?

The saddest part of all this is that, as you can see in the photograph at the top of this post, Hamza seems to have many supporters in front of the courthouse protesting his trial.
