    Who recently said: "These Jews started 19 Crusades. The 19th was World War (1). Why? Only to build Israel." Some holdover Nazi? Hardly. It was former Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan of Turkey, a NATO ally. He went on to claim that the Jews -- whom he refers to as "bacteria" -- controlled China, India and Japan, and ran the United States. Who alleged: "The Arabs who were involved in 9/11 cooperated with the Zionists, actually. It was a cooperation. They gave them the perfect excuse to denounce all Arabs." A conspiracy nut? Actually, it was former Democratic U.S. Sen. James...

    EXILED Islamic fanatic Omar Bakri Mohammed made an outrageous bid to flee bombed-out Beirut on a Royal Navy warship yesterday. But the people of Britain told him to go to hell. The Muslim cleric who once preached hate-filled rants against the UK and praised the 9/11 atrocities as "magnificent" begged to be allowed aboard one of the vessels ferrying Britons to safety. His plea, made only a few months after he quit Britain under pressure, fell on deaf ears. But Bakri still had the cheek to complain and wrote to embassy officials in Lebanon pleading to get back to the...

    Four young British Muslims in their twenties - a social worker, an IT specialist, a security guard and a financial adviser - occupy a table at a fast-food chicken restaurant in Luton. Perched on their plastic chairs, wolfing down their dinner, they seem just ordinary young men. Yet out of their mouths pour heated words of revolution. "As far as I'm concerned, when they bomb London, the bigger the better," says Abdul Haq, the social worker. "I know it's going to happen because Sheikh bin Laden said so. Like Bali, like Turkey, like Madrid - I pray for it, I...

    Today, as Americans quietly mourn the tragedy of 9/11, an extremist British Islamic group is convening a conference in London, England, dedicated to "The Magnificent Nineteen" — the suicide hijackers who caused more than 3,000 deaths in the United States. Hundreds of young British Muslims are expected to attend. Happy anniversary. The participants will explore, according to the self-styled emir of the al-Muhajiroun hosting group, the root causes of the terrorist attack. Although faces of the 19 hijackers were prominently displayed on flyers promoting the event, Omar Bakri Mohammed claims, with casual disingenuousness, that the meeting will not be a...

    <p>If the object of war is to impose one's will upon the enemy, the United States is losing the war on terror.</p> <p>If you doubt that, I invite you to consider what's going on in London today. A group of fundamentalist Muslims is commemorating the two-year anniversary of the martyrdom of "The Magnificent 19," the hijackers who killed 3,000 Americans. You can see the poster advertising the gathering on the group's Web site ( There's a phone number on the poster. I called it the other day and got an affable chap named Abdul Rehman Saleem. A native Londoner, he sounded as cheery and chirpy as Mary Poppins.</p>
