Birmingham Imam: Go To Syria Yourselves Instead Of Sending Others

My BS meter just exploded.

What this rabid dog is really saying is ‘we need you here, it hurts our cause when you join ISIL. All this jihad wakes up our infidel hosts’….

During a Friday sermon delivered at the Green Lane Mosque in Birmingham, U.K., on August 29, 2014, American-born cleric Sheik Abu Usamah At-Thahabi criticized criticized pro-ISIS preachers radicalizing Muslim youth. “Leave these innocent Muslims alone, and stop destroying their lives… You people go [to Syria] and wage Jihad,” he said, addressing British Islamist Anjem Choudary and others.

Abu Usamah At-Thahabi: “What the extreme state of Israel does, and what the foreign policy of the Western countries support – hurting Muslims, harming Muslims, and doing bad in our countries… This doesn’t give you the right to be a nasty person, a bad person. It doesn’t give you the right to go somewhere and throw your life away. So I want to tell you youngsters, in this mosque, that one of the best ways that you can protect yourselves and save yourselves from falling into drama and unnecessary problems is to connect yourself to the people who have knowledge of this religion, especially the scholars of Islam. When I say ‘the scholars,’ I am not talking about that buzz word we have today – People of the Sunna, the scholars, the scholars, the scholars – and it’s just blind following.”
