Hardline clerics said that further attacks would be “inevitable” if publication of the novel, The Jewel of Medina, goes ahead as planned next month.
Police moved in to arrest three men moments after a fire broke out at the London home and office of Martin Rynja in the early hours of Saturday.
But the radical cleric Anjem Choudhary said the book was an insult to the Prophet Mohammed’s honour, something he said would warrant a “death penalty” under Sharia law.
Which, as we all know, now has legal standing in Britain.
“People should be aware of the consequences they might face when producing material like this. They should know the depth of feeling it might provoke.”
He denied any involvement in the attack but said he “understood” the feelings of the perpetrators.
“If the publication goes ahead then I think, inevitably, there will be more attacks like this – this is the thin of the wedge,” he said.
Speaking from Lebanon, the radical cleric Omar Bakri, added: “If anybody attacks that man I cannot myself condemn it.”
Think it can’t happen here?
Ask your candidate about that when they knock on your door. I promise you they won’t know anything about that, or will pretend not to.
Ask them why we continue to allow people like this to immigrate to Canada, and undermine our Anglo-Saxon law & order, free speech culture.
Watch them squirm.
