If Christianity is to flourish it needs extremists like Choudary
In this Christian Voice post entitled “In Defence of Anjem Choudary” he asked:
Are our young people as committed to the righteous rule of God’s law commanded by King Jesus as Anjem’s Muslims are to Sharia?
And are Christian youth as sure Christ is going to rule the whole world as Anjem’s young people are confident of their world-wide Caliphate?
Luke 19:27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
Astonishingly, Green boasts that it was he who had originally”radicalised” Choudary.
I met Anjem just once, on a TV set. The producers had tried to set up Anjem, myself and an orthodox Jewish rabbi against a comedian posing as a legitimate interviewer to provoke us into intemperate statements.
I spotted what was going on and explained it to the other two, setting myself up as our ad hoc shop steward. I think I can take the credit for radicalising Anjem and the rabbi into refusing to go on. The programme was later pulled from its proposed schedule.
I found Anjem Choudary a polite, if uncompromising, individual. He was and is obviously a devout Muslim. His message is that Sharia (that’s Arabic for ‘law’) needs to be imposed and a world-wide Caliphate (Muslim rule) established. But that is no more than a fairly reasonable conclusion from following the ‘prophet’ Mohammed’s example and his Koran.
Commenting on Choudary’s five-and–half year sentence, Green said:
Mr Justice Holroyde said Anjem had ‘shown no remorse’. You don’t say! He’s not sorry for being a Muslim? Even after a nice cup of tea in the judge’s drawing room? Whatever is the world coming to?
