Not to worry, we all know that jihad means nothing but peaceful inner struggle, and if it wasn’t for a tiny minority of excremists Â who misunderstand their religion we wouldn’t have a problem at all:
Bakri, once nicknamed the ‘Tottenham Ayatollah’, said hard line Salafi Muslim groups, including al Qaeda, and his own Al-Ghuraba group, also proscribed in the UK, are ready to help their ‘Muslim brothers’ with a campaign of suicide attacks against President Bashar al Assad.
“Al Qaeda are so clever, they can make so many weapons from nothing. They can go to any kitchen, make a very nice pizza bomb and deliver it fresh,” added Bakri.
“In two or three operations, [al Qaeda] can make the Ba’ath party run away,” he added. “With self sacrifices operations â€“ you call them suicide bombings, al Qaeda will go to the Parliament when the Ba’ath are inside, he will explode and he will say ‘Oh God receive me. Oh God I am hurrying towards you'”.
The way this is written almost makes you think that the Tottenham Ayatollah is advising the UK government.
