Some British Muslims celebrate and rejoice over the attacks of 9/11
The English Birmingham Evening Mail (icbirmingham.icnetwork.co.uk) has posted an article that describes how some British Muslims are celebrating and rejoicing over the murderous attacks of 9/11:
Muslim fanatics sparked anger today after plastering Birmingham bus stops with sickening posters showing the destruction of the Twin Towers.
I guess these are the same British Muslims that are against democracy, freedom, and evolution. I copy the full article below.
Sick poster sparks outrage Sep 7 2002
Above, in a parody of the famous Bonfire night poem, are the words 'Re-member, remember the 11th of September'. The posters advertise a three-hour conference called 'September the 11th 2001 - A Towering Day in History'.
It is due to be held in central London next Wednesday on the first anniversary of the terrorist atrocities.
But devout Muslim groups in the city were today quick to condemn the conference, claiming it would be nothing more than a celebration of the attacks on New York and Washington.
Fundamental Muslim leader Abu Khadeejah, who last week staged the Salafi Islamic event in Birmingham, said: "The Al Muhajiroun conference will be about rejoicing and praising what took place on September 11.
"Al Muhajiroun are an extreme minority that feed on people with little knowledge of Islam and who feel alienated from society as a whole.
"To them it is all about spreading hate and destruction."
Coun John Lines (Con, Bartley Green) said: "I think these posters incite racial hatred. What this group are saying is fascist. These people should be drummed out of Birmingham along with their posters."
But Al Muhajiroun leader Omar Bakri Mohammed told the Evening Mail the conference would be a peaceful event to discuss why September 11 took place.
"I condemn all sorts of violence, but we need to take lessons from what happened and not keep mourning," he said.
"There may be people at the conference who feel that September 11 was justifiable, but it will be about learning from what happened and trying to find ways of moving forward together."
The 44-year-old Syrian-born 'sheik' has, however, openly backed bin Laden's philosophy in recent months.
He has also been investigated by Scotland Yard for inciting racial hatred after comments about Jews.
