UK Cleric: Jihad Ultimately Coming to ‘Heart of America’


WND – “The death of Osama bin Laden will bring a ‘new era of jihad,’ predicted British extremist cleric Anjem Choudary.

Warning there are motivated jihadists ‘in the heart of America,’ Choudary said al-Qaida will likely carry out revenge operations with ‘meticulous accuracy’ and ‘devastating affect’ comparable to that of the 9/11 attacks.

Choudary is the founder and former chief of two Islamic groups disbanded by the British authorities under anti-terror legislation.

Speaking today in an interview with ‘Aaron Klein Investigative Radio’ of New York’s WABC Radio, Choudary said that while bin Laden was a ‘lion of Islam … there are many lions waiting to take his place.’

‘I do believe that the death of Sheikh Osama will bring in a new era of jihad,’ Choudary told Klein.

‘Post-Osama bin Laden, I believe the mujahedeen around the world will have something to prove, that the jihad is not about an individual.’

Choudary said instability for U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan ‘will be a complete nightmare after this event.’

Asked whether he believes al-Qaida is planning revenge attacks, the British extremist speculated the global jihad group ‘will have their own emergency meetings and they will plan their own response.’

Continued Choudary: ‘It may be in the short-term or it may be in the long-term, but ultimately, we know that when they decide on an operation, that most likely it will be fulfilled with meticulous accuracy and with devastating effect.’

‘We saw that with 9/11,’ he added.

Choudary said worldwide jihad “at the current time is spread right from Australia all the way to the heart of Europe and into the United States.”

‘There are many people who believe in the phenomenon of jihad which has been franchised as well from al-Qaida. … And these people live in the heart of Europe and they live in the heart of America.'”  Read more.
