British Muslims: Not In Our Name, Omar
I’ve blogged about the terrorist apologist Omar Bakri Mohammad (OBM) before, and detailed his love affair with the British social system.
Here’s a taste of from that previous post:
He receives Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£331.28 a month in incapacity benefit and Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£183.30 a month in disability living allowance because of a leg injury he suffered in his teens.
Both payments will continue for at least six months while he is abroad, as long as he plans to return, as will the housing benefit on his home in Edmonton, north London, and his council tax benefit.
His wife, who remains in Britain with their seven children, can also continue to claim a benefits package thought to be worth at least Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£1,300 a month. Bakri drives a Toyota people carrier worth Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£30,000, paid for under a scheme called Motability.
The preacher is expected to return for an angioplasty procedure. That involves inserting and inflating a balloon in the coronary artery to improve blood flow.
Today, I found a post about OBM over at Michael Totten’s blog and it’s extremely heartening. British muslims are finally calling people like him out and demanding that he not return to their country.
To Omar Bakri Mohammad,
We, British Muslims, urge you not to return to the United Kingdom.
You have caused enough trouble already. Your statements, pronouncements and fatwas are neither supported nor looked kindly upon – except by the British media which seems to have a strange love-affair with you.
You have single-handedly sought to destroy good community relations and have been an obstacle to the progress of British Muslims in becoming integral citizens who live, as stated in the shariah, according to the law of this land.
Our varied vision of Islam in Britain does not include yours. We emphasise mercy, tolerance and diversity while you emphasise hate, violence, hypocrisy and separation from others. If the United Kingdom is as bad as you teach your minions, then you have no reason to live here.
You are a poor example of the Prophetic message (peace and blessings be upon him) and for that alone you should stay out of this country and our lives forever.
If you’re a British muslim, you can sign the petition here.
