UK Islamists Threaten British Lord
This wouldn't be news except that the man in question is Lord Ahmed of Rotherham, the first Muslim in the House of Lords. He has had two 'official' death threat issued against him in that ever-popular form, the fatwa. Why would jihadis want to kill a high-ranking Muslim? What on earth did this guy do?
The first fatwa against Lord Ahmed is understood to have come at an al-Muhajiroun meeting after he was declared guilty of apostasy, abandoning his faith, a crime which is punishable by death.
Well, apostasy is a serious crime for Islamists. The guy must be bad.
Lord Ahmed has openly called for Islamic militants, such as Abu Hamza and Omar Bakri, to be kicked out of the UK and has also been an outspoken critic of the teaching in some mosques around the country. He called for imams to be tested in English language and culture and said many clerics were preaching extremism.
This lead Bakri to issue the second fatwa last week. You might remember Bakri as the sheikh encouraging the now infamous Butt-Martyr, Hassan Butt. Bakri has a thing for dead Muslim men, either by their own hand or by his. (thanks to DhimmiWatch)
