British Islamist "Abu Haleema" on Day of Brussels Attacks: Do Not Grieve for the Infidels

Source: The Internet

In a video titled "Do Not Grieve for Them," posted on the Internet on the day of the Brussels terror attacks, a British Islamist going by the name "Abu Haleema" said that the sympathy of the Muslims should lie with the victims of airstrikes in Syria and Iraq and not with the "infidels." "When 20,000 Muslims died in Syria - that's where your mercy should be. When 10,000 Muslims died in Iraq - that's where your mercy should be. When they gun down little children in Palestine - that's where your mercy should be," he said.


Following are excerpts


"Abu Haleema": [The Quran says]: "And do not grieve over them." If you read the commentary on that verse - what does it say? It says: Do not feel regret over their rejection of you and your religion. That is what infidels do. So don't feel regret for that. That is the infidels' job - to oppose your religion, to oppose you as a Muslim. That is what they are supposed to do. They are doing nothing but what infidels do. The only thing they are doing is what infidels are supposed to do, which is to oppose the Muslims.

When they bombed Mosul University yesterday, and they killed 80 students and lecturers - that's where your mercy should be. When they bomb hospitals in Raqqah - that's where your mercy should be. When 20,000 Muslims died in Syria - that's where your mercy should be. When 10,000 Muslims died in Iraq - that's where your mercy should be. When they gun down little children in Palestine - that's where your mercy should be. When there are children starving and dying in Africa - that's where your mercy should be. Not with the infidels... Your mercy should always be with the believers. That is what Allah commanded you. What did Allah say in Quran 5:68? He said: "Do not feel sorry for the disbelieving people." That's what Allah commanded you with.

What kind of terrorism is this? You kill people for what they believe. You are bombing people for what they believe. And you expect people to feel sorry for you. Wake up, Muslims. Who are your allegiances with? Who are you supporting? Who are you feeling sorry for?
