UK jihadi: “If and when I come back to Britain it will be when this Khilafah...

And why does the Islamic State actually have a chance to come to Britain? Because of the steadfast insistence on the part of British authorities that the Islamic State and its fighters actually have nothing to do with Islam at all, and the persistence of those authorities in maintaining these comforting fictions that prevent them from studying, understanding, or dealing effectively with the ideology that leads to imperialist and supremacist statements like the ones Abu Osama makes here.

“British jihadi: I won’t return to UK until black flag flies over Buckingham Palace,” by Raziye Akkoc, the Telegraph, July 4, 2014 (thanks to Thomas Pellow):

A British man who claims he is fighting with jihadists in Syria has said he would not return to the UK until “the black flag of Islam” flies over Buckingham Palace and Downing Street.

The man, who called himself Abu Osama, said he had received military training, including how to build bombs and shoot weapons, during his time in Syria.

Speaking with a West Yorkshire accent in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, he described the 7/7 London bombers as “heroic lions”, claiming “there is nothing in Britain – it is just pure evil”.

Osama said he was fighting with the extremist Al-Nusra Front, linked to Al-Qaeda. However the BBC said his claims had not been “officially verified”.

The man told presenter Nicky Campbell: “I have no intention of coming back to Britain, because I have come to revive the Islamic Khilafah [the Arabic term for the creation of a caliphate].

“I don’t want to come back to what I have left behind.

“If and when I come back to Britain it will be when this Khilafah – this Islamic state – comes to conquer Britain and I come to raise the black flag of Islam over Downing Street, over Buckingham Palace, over Tower Bridge and over Big Ben.”

His comments come after more than 100 imams, from different parts of the faith, urged British Muslims not to go to Syria or Iraq, and to offer assistance from the UK.

In the letter, the imams wrote: “Ramadan, the month of mercy, teaches us the value of unity and perseverance and we urge the British Muslim communities to continue the generous and tireless efforts to support all of those affected by the crisis in Syria and unfolding events in Iraq, but to do so from the UK in a safe and responsible way.”

One of the signatories of the letter, Imam Qari Muhammad Asim, told BBC Radio 4′s Today programme more than 100 imams across Britain would urge members of their congregation not to go to Syria in Friday prayers.

He condemned the comments made by Osama and said the man had been “completely hijacked”.

The imam at Makkah Mosque said: “Radicalisation doesn’t take place overnight – Islam has been hijacked. Social media and the internet plays a huge part in radicalisation and brainwashing.”

Why is it so easy to hijack Islam, and why is such hijacking so prevalent?

But he added a lot of work had to be done and it was not only the responsibility of the Muslim community and imams, but law enforcement as well.

Why? How can British law enforcement prevent Islam from being hijacked?

The man speaking to the BBC said his family initially found it hard to accept his decision “because no mother wants to lose her son” but his family now “understands that this is a good cause I am in”.

He added: “”They are a bit scared but I tell them we will meet in the afterlife. This is just a temporary separation.

“They said, ‘We understand now what you are doing’, and my mother said, ‘I have sold you to Allah. I don’t want to see you again in this world’.”

Why are we not killing every one of these people on sight?

They declare war on us daily and kill as many of us as possible at every opportunity!!

Yet, we continue to let them walk amoungst us.

Our great/grandkids will one day ask: "Why didn't they(us) do something when they still could."

The Brits are wearing ideological burkas that are shielding them from any sense of reality.

James Watt invented the steam engine.
History says, he learned the power of steam when as a child he stopped up the spout and lid on a tea kettle, set it on the fire—then watched what happened.

Boom.

Yer British Gummint has a pretty tight lid on things in the UK. BUT—the fire is hot.

Tick, tock.

The ones who should be "killed on sight" are the ones who allow them to enter Britain in massive numbers.

Support for the theory the religion is hijacked by Muslims who follow the Koran and Hadiths to the letter ,to this day, are still coming from knucklehead Tony Blair.
Blair says they are not practicing "Authentic Islam."-Tom

The Anglo-Saxons tend to put up with a lot of crap from people like the Nazis and the Muzzies — for a while. Then they decide they have had enough and all hell breaks loose. Kipling’s “Dona Ferentes” poem tells the story.......

"Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes is a Latin phrase from Aeneid (II, 49), written by Virgil between 29 and 19 BC. It has been paraphrased in English as the proverb "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts". Its literal meaning is "I fear the Danaans [Greeks], even those bearing gifts" or "even when they bear gifts". Most printed versions of the text have the orthographical variant ferentis instead of ferentes.[1]"

what would he know about authentic Islam and faux islam? I never actually went to jihadi website in English, but these guys really don’t make any bones on their websites on what they believe in and what their objectives are. I know groups like CAIR and other front groups come out with a lot of BS, but Islam has a long tradition of lying to shield the true objective. Robert Spencer is a great source of info on all of this. The only thing Muslims and the pathetically politically correct can call the man is—an islamophobe.

It's spelled out also in the Koran and Hadiths, which are the source of Islam..

One of the problems most Christians Infidels have in understanding Islam is their Christianity is so different they have trouble grasping that Islam is a religion that wants it's adherants to subjugate , convert or kill anyone who doesn't believe there is only one God and Muhammed is his prophet. -Tom
