UK: Sensitive Police Raids Make 'Muslim Community' Go Ballistic

Update II:

Jihad/martyrdom suicide bomber in Syria was driver for jihad preacher Omar Bakri in UK

Jihad/martyrdom suicide bomber in Syria was driver for jihad preacher Omar Bakri in UK

But wait! His family said that he had “never shown any signs of extremism”! Surely they weren’t lying, were they? Inconceivable! When they were asked if Majeed was an “extremist,” they probably didn’t think of his association with Omar Bakri — they probably thought they were being asked if he celebrated Valentine’s Day. Note also […]Continue Reading Comments

Update from the Long War Journal:

A decade before traveling to Syria to wage jihad for the Al Nusrah Front, Majeed was a student of Omar Bakri Muhammad, the radical jihadist cleric who once wrote statements for Osama bin Laden and who formed al-Muhajiroun, which has been banned in England for terrorist activities. Majeed was also a member of al-Muhajiroun from 1996-2004.

Bakri called Majeed “a very dear brother,” who was active in promoting the “Muslim cause,” the Guardian reported.

These people are raid-o-phobic:

“The Muslims are going ballistic. The Muslim community are absolutely outraged by this – tensions are very high.”

Tensions “are high” among the Muslim community in Crawley following reports up to five properties are being searched in relation to the suspected Crawley suicide bomber. Police and South East Counter Terrorism officers have been at a second property in Langley Green this morning (Thursday) in what is believed to be part of the inquiry.

Now a spokesman for the Muslim community in Crawley has said more properties are thought to be being searched today.

Arif Syed, chairman of Crawley Mosque and a spokesman for the town’s Muslim community, said: “As I understand there is one property being searched in Langley Drive, one in St Joans Close, but I’m also being told that there will be further searches carried out. These people are being kicked out of their homes  and the police have the audacity to ask us to house them at the mosque while they carry out their searches.

“It’s a witchhunt. No, it’s a terrorist hunt. The public are going ballistic. The Muslim community are absolutely outraged by this – tensions are very high. They are all friends of Mr Majeed, I’m a friend of Mr Majeed, this is such a tight-knit community here.”

“We are all set to meet tomorrow at the mosque and I already know that the temperature will be high.”

If he admits to being a friend of a suicide bomber maybe his house should be next to be searched. And then search the mosque. Thoroughly.
