ChoudaryandAbuHamzaStanding behind Choudary in the photo here is Mujaahid Abu Hamza, aka Michael Adebolajo, who murdered British soldier Lee Rigby on a London street in 2013. Choudary is amassing quite a record, but the clueless and compromised British authorities would sooner race their nation on the road to ruin than do anything to rein in Choudary, since such an action would inevitably appear “Islamophobic.”

“Internet chiefs told to curb Islamists online,” by Christopher Hope, the Telegraph, October 24, 2014 (thanks to JW):

Internet providers have been warned that the Government will force them to remove extremist material, as it emerged that a British hate preacher had influenced the man behind the attack on the Canadian parliament.

Senior British executives from Twitter, Google and Facebook were summoned to Downing Street on Thursday and told to do more to take action to curb the online activities of extremists.

The Daily Telegraph can disclose that the Home Office and Crown Prosecution Service are in talks about using court orders to ensure that internet providers such as

BT and Virgin immediately remove extremist propaganda.

The warning came as it transpired that Britain’s most high-profile radical Islamist preacher, Anjem Choudary, had influenced the man involved in the Ottawa attack.

Canadian police are investigating Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, a Muslim convert, as a suspect in the attacks in and around Canada’s parliament building on Wednesday in which a soldier was shot dead.

There were reports in Canada that Zehaf-Bibeau and another Islamic convert, Martin Ahmad Rouleau, had been influenced by Choudary. The radical cleric was one of nine men arrested last month by Scotland Yard officers as part of an investigation into Islamist terrorism.

Rouleau’s Twitter account showed that he followed several radical preachers, including Choudary, who tweeted that he hoped that the Canadian attacker would be admitted to heaven.

However, Choudary said: “The fact that someone follows you on Twitter does not mean you necessarily influenced him to do anything.”…

Indeed not. But when he murders a Canadian soldier and shoots up the Parliament building after you have praised and encouraged such actions, there may be some reason to believe you have indeed influenced him.

  1. A good excuse to shut down all sites considered not for the common good. Including sites like this or BNI. Why can’t these idiots put the blame where it should be, on ISLAM and the Quran, not internet sites. Politicians would just love to have a clueless public. Apathetic and easy to control.
