UK Muslim Leader: Islam Not a Religion of Peace

If the stakes were not so high, the situation with Islam in the West would be comical. Just minutes ago, I posted about Churches in the UK supporting Islam, and now I found this article in which a UK Muslim leader has stated the harsh reality of Islam. That it is not a religion of peace. Unfortunately dealing in reality is not a strong point of many non-Muslim Westerners today.

Hat to The Religion of Peace.

UK Muslim Leader: Islam Not a Religion of Peace

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has released a review of its strategy in the war on terrorism. The report failed to even mention the word “Islam.”

CBN News traveled to London to talk with Anjem Choudary, a leading Muslim radical who says Islamic teachings are what shaped his pro-jihad message.

Although both George W. Bush and Barack Obama have declared that Islam is a religion of peace, Choudary begs to differ.

A Religion of Peace?

“You can’t say that Islam is a religion of peace,” Choudary told CBN News. “Because Islam does not mean peace. Islam means submission. So the Muslim is one who submits. There is a place for violence in Islam. There is a place for jihad in Islam.”

Choudary is the leader of Islam4UK , a group recently banned in Britain under the country’s counter-terrorism laws. He wants Islamic Sharia law to rule the United Kingdom and is working to make that dream a reality.

While Islamic radicals in the United States usually prefer to speak in more moderate tones while in public, masking their true agenda, Choudary has no such inhibitions.

He has praised the 9/11 hijackers and has called for the execution of Pope Benedict. He also stirred controversy recently when video emerged of him converting a 10-year-old British boy to Islam.

Openly Praising Jihad

Choudary told CBN News his group is a “non-violent political and ideological movement” that resides in the UK under “a covenant of security.”

Yet he openly praises violent jihad.

“The Koran is full of, you know, jihad is the most talked about duty in the Koran other than tawhid — belief,” he said. “Nothing else is mentioned more than the topic of fighting.”

Several former members of Choudary’s group have been arrested on terrorism charges.

“A very significant amount of former al-Muhajiroun people were involved in terrorist plots against this country,” London-based terrorism expert Peter Neumann said. “A number of people have actually gone to Afghanistan, joined the Taliban and died fighting for the Taliban.”

Choudary refuses to condemn acts of terror including 9/11 and the July 7, 2005 London bombings, which killed 52 people.

Islam More than Religion

CBN News asked Choudary for his thoughts on the 7/7 bombings on London’s transport system, and whether he condemned them.

“For the people who carried it out, it was legitimate,” he replied. “If you look at the will of the 7/7 bombers Mohammed Siddique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer, they would be justified. And there are many verses from the Koran and many statements to say that’s the Islamic argument. And that is a difficult Islamic argument to refute. And there are many scholars who support that argument as well.”

Choudary says his group is merely following core Islamic teachings and that Islam is much more than a religion.

“This particular belief is more than just a religion,” he declared. “It is not just a spiritual belief. It is, in fact, an ideology which you believe in and you struggle for and you are willing even to die for, because you believe in that: That is your whole life.”

Choudary seems to relish being called Great Britain’s “most hated man” and pledges to continue his rallies calling for the overthrow of the British system.

    Ah! Anjem Choudary again. How long are you going to keep pimping this guy’s every action, each time pretending you’ve never heard of him before?

    • March 2, 2010 at 2:22 am

      Point out where I said that I have never heard of him before.

    He is able to say that because since he is living in the West, HE KNOWS what we mean when we refer to "peace" as opposed to what they mean when THEY refer to "peace". He laid it all out on the line and said exactly the same thing we have been saying all along because he is one of a few with a bi-lateral perspective. HE just wants his perspective to be the supreme, dominant, righteous and eventually : ONLY perspective.

      Western Civilization and Islam are polar opposites.

    There is so much back and forth that is pure hogwash. The fact is, there is a definite section of ISLAMIC pukes that want to do harm to all non-muz, especially Jews and Americans. My problem is, that if I do what I want to do about it, I'll get put in jail for doing it. Mouthy muz are only good for target practice as far as I'm concerned, and should be shot on sight.

    Anjem Chaudhry is living on handouts from the British government and hasn't done a day's work in Britain, at least in the recent past.
    Why can't Britain throw him out of the country or at least make him take up a job?
    UK banned Geert Wilders from talking in the country but no one tries to stop this hate-preacher from spewing hate. Such a shame.

      They have similar nutjobs in other countries. Norway has their Mullah Krekar and Oz has Sheik Catmeat. I don't understand why they don't expell those assholes.

      • March 3, 2010 at 4:41 am

        Sheik al-Hilali? Yeah, the arselifter came to Australia illegally then a Labour prime minister intervened to allow him to stay.

        Like "parisclaims" said, they vote labour.

    (Just missing the e at the end of peace was all)
    Choudary has been preaching his particular brand of evil for a while now and I must give him this: he makes our 'job' here easier by making our arguments for us. lol The person 'interest' up there mentioning the jihyza is right on track..I remember that he or one of his ilk was preaching on how to successfully milk and cheat the UK welfare system not long ago. Such crap.
    They will use our own wealth and success against us, without a hint of guilt, because it is what we 'Dhimmis' owe them.
    They sure don't turn their pious, peaceful noses up at the Great Satans' many benefits and comforts now do they? lol

    He believes the quran, it says all the money belongs to "allah".
    So, all the British money is just jizya to "the best of people"
    Too bad nobody looked into what the muslim texts said before they allowed them to immigrate en masse.

  9. March 3, 2010 at 11:21 am

    Sadly, Choudary is not an extremist. He is just stating what Islamic ideology is, and anyone who doubts him can check it out from the original sources.

    We need to start acknowledging that this is the real Islam – submission, not peace.

      1. Islam calls for the dominance and extortion of Christians.

      009.029
      YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

      2.There is also this.

      005.051
      YUSUFALI: O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

      The article above states, Islam is not peaceful.

    Hi Chris, Thanks for this post. Saw the clip of this idiot on GB show the other day. I get so sick of hearing morons call Islam a religion of peace. The only peaceful muslims are the ones who are not truly adhering to what their “good book” says. And as we see almost daily in the middle east, the so called radicals have no problems killing their peaceful fellow muslims either!

    Jesus say they kill and lie because their father is a murderer and lier, is satan. they are deceived by satan yet they don’t know, they thought they are doing God’s will by kill other.
    it is wrong,only satan ask man to kill other.God never ask man to kill other,in the judgement day,God HIMSELF will judge everyone of us. they think they are righteousness than other,even can kill other in the name of religion. they are deceipt by the satan.

    Jesus said to the crowd, if u thing that u are not a sinner, then u can stone this aldulterous women to death. when the crowd heard Jesus said these to them, they put down the stone and walk away. then Jesus said to the women u can go home now and don’t commit sin again. we are all sinner.

  15. July 4, 2011 at 2:18 am

    we got no right to kill other, we are all sinner.satan only ask man to kill other,even in the name of religion.

    I do not even know how I ended up right here, however I assumed this put up was good. I do not understand who you might be but certainly you are going to a well-known blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
