Posted on 09/18/2006 3:28:06 PM PDT by tcrlaf
A notorious Muslim extremist told a demonstration in London yesterday that the Pope should face execution.
Anjem Choudary said those who insulted Islam would be "subject to capital punishment".
His remarks came during a protest outside Westminster Cathedral on a day that worldwide anger among Muslim hardliners towards Pope Benedict XVI appeared to deepen.
The pontiff yesterday apologised for causing offence during a lecture last week. Quoting a medieval emperor, his words were taken to mean that he called the prophet Mohammed "evil and inhuman".
He insisted he was "deeply sorry" but his humbling words did not go far enough to silence all his critics or quell the violence and anger he has triggered.
A nun was shot dead in Somalia by Islamic gunmen and churches came under attack in Palestine.
Choudary's appeal for the death of Pope Benedict was the second time he has been linked with apparent incitement to murder within a year.
The 39-year-old lawyer organised demonstrations against the publication of cartoons of Mohammed in February in Denmark. Protesters carried placards declaring "Behead Those Who Insult Islam".
Yesterday he said: "The Muslims take their religion very seriously and non-Muslims must appreciate that and that must also understand that there may be serious consequences if you insult Islam and the prophet.
"Whoever insults the message of Mohammed is going to be subject to capital punishment."
He added: "I am here have a peaceful demonstration. But there may be people in Italy or other parts of the world who would carry that out.
"I think that warning needs to be understood by all people who want to insult Islam and want to insult the prophet of Islam."

Such love and tolerance we hear so much about no doubt.
Anyone have the quote read by the Pope?
No it's "The Pope Must Diet!"
Ah yes. The religion of "peace." Aren't they something? And all the pope was reading was something written (or spoken) by someone hundreds of years ago. Yeah, let's have dialogue with them (ala Jimmy Carter, Kucinich, etc.) They can be reasoned with (ask the almost 3000 dead Americans on 9/11).
From the Globe And Mail, this is what the Pope Actually SAID...
"The Pope, quoting a 15th-century Byzantine emperor, told his audience at the University of Regensburg: "Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."
He used the words to illustrate that violence is contrary to the nature of God.
Vatican officials insisted he meant no disrespect to Muslims and that the quotation was taken out of context. But the defence failed to mute Muslim anger."
LOL! I about threw up today when Kukecinich kept saying "we need to TALK to Them!!!!".....
Exactly HOW do you negotiate with someone who WANTS YOU DEAD?? I've YET to have ANY Democrat/Liberal explain that one to me...
Don't negotiations only work when BOTH sides have something to gain from it??
Your prophet was a sadistic fascist with perverted sexual inclinations.
Guess you can count me as being marked for capitol punishment too. I'm honored to stand with the Pope on this one.
Like Rush said, "Peace always follows victory, not negotiations."
Thanks. Outrage is a weapon used in the clash of societies.
So much for the peace loving former hippies and the Muslims (religion of peace)...
6th Commandment ...Thou shall not kill (even in your darkest fantasies)
Muhammed is a false prophet...
Kind of proves what the Pope said.
Mohammed sucked camel toes!
And so do you!
I'm not a religous person at all. To me, its sadly funny to watch two great religions clash. Both claim to be connected to God (or to speak for him) but, both groups leaders are just full of shit. They are simply men who weild power by convincing people that they weild power.
With that said, Western religion went the through reformation and the age of reason is upon them. Somehow, westerners have found away to intermingle religious doctrin and politics. The Muslims, however, are still stuck in the 'my way or off with your head' mono-theism fascism that us westerners just can't comprehend. In this way, even the most atheist amongst us can't help but side with the west and freedom. The death threats against the Pope are absolutely stupid and cruel. The daily suicide bombings are likewise, stupid. The Muslim world is jealous of our success, our stuff, our homes, our science...our happiness with daily life. Many our angry and hateful people...and quite serious about it (obviously).
Still, it's amazing how ordinary men of both cultures can throw on a fancy robe, look to the sky with a tear in their eye (for effect) and get so many chumps to follow them in the name of God.
Let's send Kukecinich alone to talk them to death.
Which of these drooling knuckle-dragging mouth-breathers is NOT a "Muslim extemist". In fact, I submit that the expression "Muslim extremist" is a first-order redundancy.
islam is a murderous cult. Find me.
