'Christmas is the pathway to hell': Muslim lawyer's extraordinary rant at 'evil' celebration
DailyMail ^ | 12/10/08 | Liz Hazelton

Posted on 12/10/2008 3:52:30 PM PST by Sammy67

A Muslim lawyer has launched an extraordinary rant against Christmas, branding the celebration 'evil'. Hate preacher Anjem Choudary claimed the festival was the 'pathway to hell' and urged his followers to boycott it. 'In the world today many Muslims, especially those residing in Western countries, are exposed to the evil celebration Christmas,' he raged in a sermon broadcast on the internet.

'Many take part in the festival celebrations by having Christmas turkey dinners. 'Decorating the house, purchasing Christmas trees or having Christmas turkey meals are completely prohibited by Allah. 'Many still practise this corrupt celebration as a remembrance of the birth of Jesus. 'How can a Muslim possibly approve or participate in such a practice that

All he has to do is tell the libs “I’m offended” and they will permanently ban Christmas. Then a non-Christian should say “I’m offended by the ban on Christmas” and watched the libs’ heads explode.

“..and they will permanently ban Christmas.”

Also for the 54% of the catholics who voted for Obama?

That’s not fair—all they wanted was change but they had not expected this. (Or perhaps they did and are glad about it.)

Fanatic Choudhary, 41, who is chairman of the Society of Muslim Lawyers, is the right-hand man of exiled preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed.

His family lives on £25,000-a-year benefit handout while he has gained notoriety as a firebrand speaker lauded by extremist groups.

That figures. He's on the dole.

I was under the assumption that the muslims respect Jesus as a holy prophet.

I guess slamming Christmas is the new flavor of the week. So these guys go along with it.

Funny, the majority of the American Sheep agree with him.

And most Brits.

Muslims have a right to not celebrate Christmas, and Christians have a right not to celebrate Ramadan. The real issue here is that this guy lives not in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan, he lives in Britain. Christmas is a traditional holiday that is celebrated by the whole nation, not just devout Christians. Why the heck is this guy in England if he cant respect English traditions?

How ironic: Christmas was introduced as a substitute for pagan celebrations of the winter solstice and is now becoming branded a pagan holiday. What’s next, evil harvest celebrations?

I'm conservative. I'm offended by the Muslim in this article. I find his attitude bigoted. I also find the author of this article bigoted because he repeated this mad man's rant.

I'm sorry for him that he doesn't understand that Christmas is a special time of year.

If the Muslims are offended by Western ways then they need to return to their own countries.

Does the Daily Mail really think it needs to report everything some disgruntled, dissatisfied Muslim says?

Decorating and presents are evil, but cutting open the throat of an animal (and sometimes a human) human is perfectly fine.

When will the world rid of these psychos?

His comments were condemned by Robin Tilbrook, chairman of the English Democrats, who branded them 'nonsense'. 'You really start to wonder why the people behind this want to be in Britain in the first place,' he said.

'Why live here if that's how you feel?

'It's an extremely narrow-minded, jihadist, anti-Western viewpoint. It's such a backwards take on things.

'I'm happy for these people to spout nonsense like this because it just shows them up for what they really are.'

I wish our politicians talked like this.

This does it, the Christmas turkey is being named Choudhary & the ham is getting a name this year....Omar Bakri Mohammed. Since that is a mouthful we will just call the ham Omar. I will start a new family tradition.

"That figures. He's on the dole. "

I bet he doesn't refuse that free Christmas turkey that comes with this months early welfare check.

At least this muslim is being truthful. He doesn't lie like the others that claim they like Jesus. One in awhile the truth slips out, like the pictures of destroyed churches with obscenities spray painted on them calling Jesus derogatory names. Media here never prints those pics for some reason. I wonder why...
