Taqiya: British Imam Condemns Terrorism to Infidels, Praises Terror to Muslims
Taqiya is an idea which justifies deceiving the enemy for the sake of Islam. Hamid Ali, an imam from West Yorkshire, is clearly practicing it.
A week after the attack [London transit bombings] he had told newspapers that the perpetrators ought to be punished. But in a secretly taped conversation, he said: â€śWhat they [the bombers] did was good. They have warned that we are here, we Muslims. People have taken notice that we are here. They died so that people would take notice . . . big meetings and conferences make no change at all. With this, at least peopleâ€™s ears have pricked up.â€ť...
He also praised the bombers as the â€śchildrenâ€ť of Abdullah al-Faisal, a firebrand Muslim cleric, who was convicted of inciting murder and racial hatred in 2003.
Ali revealed that the leader of the London suicide bombers had attended sermons in Yorkshire by al-Faisal and tapes of al-Faisalâ€™s teachings were still circulating within his mosque.
Al-Faisal, who has branded non-Muslims as â€ścockroachesâ€ť ripe for extermination, is serving a seven-year prison sentence but is eligible for early release next week.
