Whew …. good thing the Brits banned Spencer and me. They are really on top of this jihad thing. Not talking about it will really defeat these savages. (/sarc tag)

“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”.’

How touching.

British Jihadi fighting in Syria for a year says he’ll only return to Britain when ‘black flag of Islam hangs over Buckingham Palace’ and tells parents he will see them in the afterlife

‘Abu Osama’ says he has been fighting with the radical Al-Nusra Front
He branded UK ‘pure evil’ and said it would become part of an Islamic state
Speaking with a northern English accent, he told of his parents’ worries
But he claims they now back his decision to fight and expect him to die
Comes as British religious leaders urged young men not to go to Middle East
100 imams say Muslims should help Syrians ‘in responsible way’ from UK

A British Jihadi who claims he is fighting alongside militants in Syria has said he will return to the UK when he sees ‘the black flag of Islam’ hanging over Buckingham Palace.

The man, who called himself Abu Osama, said he had been taking part in military training, making bombs and fighting with the extremist Al-Nusra Front, which is linked to al Qaida, for the past year.

Osuma, whose accent suggested he comes from the north of England, claimed to have been fighting for the establishment of a caliphate – which he referred to by the Arabic term Khilafah – across the Islamic world.

He told BBC 5 Live’s Nicky Campbell: ‘There is nothing in Britain – it is just pure evil.

‘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.’

But he added: ‘I have no intention of coming back to Britain, because I have come to revive the Islamic Khilafah. I don’t want to come back to what I have left behind.

Osuma said he initially faced opposition from his family over his decision to go to Syria,saying: ‘At first it was hard for them to accept, because no mother wants to lose her son.

‘But I send them photos and I speak to them about the situation, and now they can understand that this is a good cause I am in.

‘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”.’
he comments were broadcast as religious leaders called on British Muslims not to travel to Syria and Iraq, amid fears of jihadis fleeing the country to take part in terrorism.

An open letter signed by more than 100 imams from across major theological backgrounds has urged British Muslim communities ‘to continue the generous and tireless effort 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’.

The imams’ open letter read: ‘As the crisis in Syria and Iraq deepens, we the under-signed have come together as a unified voice to urge the British Muslim communities not to fall prey to any form of sectarian divisions or social discord.

‘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.’

The letter comes during the Islamic festival of Ramadan, but against a troubling backdrop of tensions between the Middle East and the west.

Sure sounds like these imams are urging Muslims to support jihad from the UK instead of going there. Read it carefully.
