British Islamist Anjem Choudary recently warned the West: "Hands off Muslim lands... When we've established the shari'a, we will come to you." Choudary, speaking on a panel that included British Islamists Abu Rumaysah and Abu Baraa, showed an image of Buckingham Palace with a superimposed minaret and dome and said: "We will remove your regime and implement the shari'a in Europe." Abu Rumaysah said: "One day Obama will witness his own country being run by the shari'a, Allah willing." The statements were posted on the Internet on October 16, 2014.
Following are excerpts:
“Abu Rumaysah”: We have grown up in the West, and we are sick of the West, because we see the values that are promoted go against the shari’a, and go against the Quran. Over 90 years, my dear brothers and sisters, we have seen it all: pornography, interest-based loans, poverty, homelessness, abortion, gambling – you name it. Democracy has nothing to offer.
We have witnessed something so historic: the establishment of the Caliphate. The Caliphate, my dear brothers and sisters, is not just a blessing for us, but it is also a blessing for the non-Muslims. This is something which we should look forward to, because it is not something that is going to be isolated to Iraq and Syria.
One of the policies of the Islamic State is Jihad, or rather, the foreign policy is to expand the borders of the Islamic State. So very soon, my dear brothers and sisters, we are going to see the Caliphate expand into Jordan, into Saudi Arabia, and onto the shores of Europe. One day Obama will witness his own country being run by the shari’a, Allah willing.
Anjem Choudary: Definitely, before the Day of Judgment, even America, Britain, China, and Russia will be under the authority of the Muslims. This is a promise of the Messenger Muhammad. Indeed, there are many good tidings, much good news, to come.
In one narration, the Prophet said: The Day of Judgment will not come until a group of my nation conquer Rome. In another narration, he said: The Day of Judgment will not come until a group of my nation conquer the White House. There are many “white houses,” and obviously one is still standing, at the moment, in Washington.
Allah is with us, my dear Muslims. We will not be defeated. No matter how much Obama and his henchmen say that they will defeat the Muslims – they will be defeated. History will prove that they will be buried like the rest of the people in history. Allah willing, from the embers will rise the words: “There is no god but Allah” and the shari’a.
What do you think the Muslims around the world are going to think about the same American citizens who put Obama in power, while he continues to kill Muslims? What do you think people are going to think about the American citizens and journalists who brought the same people to power, who continue to murder the Muslims? This is why we say: It is not safe for any Western journalist or Western civilians at the current time in the Muslim world.
We are rising against our corrupted regimes, which you put in place most of the times, who you armed, who have been butchering us for decades. We are removing them. So hands off Muslim lands. Stay away.
When we establish the shari’a, we will come to you. You don’t need to come to us. We will come to visit you. Don’t worry. We can remove your regime as well and implement the shari’a. Allah willing, we can live together, as we did peacefully for over 800 years, in the heart of Europe.
They say that Islam is alien to Europe. Really? It was in France, 30 miles south of Paris, for your information. 800 years in what was Portugal and Spain… There was no Portugal at that time, they were all under the shari’a.
In parts of Austria, in parts of Switzerland, in Crete, in Rhodes, in Cyprus, in Greece, in Turkey – they all had the shari’a.
King John of England, in the 12th century, said to the Wali in Morocco: Help me against the kings of Europe, and I will become a Muslim. I will even ask my own people to become Muslims. So Britain could have been a Muslim country.
Don’t forget that image as well. That’s a nice one. That is how Buckingham Palace will look one day, Allah willing. I don’t know if you can tell the difference between that image and the actual Buckingham Palace, but if you look at the back, I’m sure you will be able to see the minaret and the dome. That’s a nice design by our brother here, by Abu Rumaysah and Abu Baraa.
In the Islamic State now, everybody has free food, clothing, and shelter. Close your eyes and image a society in which everybody has free food, clothing, and shelter. You haven’t got a house? Here is your house. You don’t have to go live in a cardboard box outside the council for a few weeks before they give you a house.
You don’t have electricity? Here is free electricity. Here is free water. What else do you want? Do you want a salary? Here, take some money. There is no society like that.
I was reading somewhere about… I can’t believe it… I believe it was either 5,000 – or more like 50,000 – robberies a month in Texas alone. No wonder they don’t want the shari’a! They are thinking: Who’s going to have a hand left? If we have shari’a in America, we’re all going to be stoned to death, and then there’ll only be one person left.
Everybody is having a relationship with his neighbor or the dog… I don’t know what they are doing over there.
