Muslim Lecturer Abdur Raheem Green Declares: "Terrorism Works"

Of course terrorism works. Why else would Allah command Muslims to fight unbelievers, simply for being unbelievers?
Qur’an 9:29—Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the Religion of Truth, from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
And yet all the world is shocked when a Muslim defends fighting unbelievers.
London, June 7 (ANI): An Islamic preacher told his students that it was difficult to argue with the views of Osama bin Laden and said “terrorism works” during a speech at a university in London.

Abdur Raheem Green, a Muslim convert and former public schoolboy, said that a “permanent state of war exists between the people of Islam and the people who opposed Islam,” while addressing students at University College London (UCL).

He gave the speech to the university’s Islamic society while Umar Farouq Abdulmutallab, the Detroit bomber, was a student there in 2005, the Telegraph reports.

Referring to Osama in his 2005 UCL speech, Green, who claims he is not an extremist, said that it was difficult to argue with his views.

“His rational [sic] is, we are going to keep on killing your women and children until you stop killing our women and children. How do you argue with that?” said Green in his speech.

"The other thing is that it seems that terrorism works. We certainly have precedent,” he added.

The disclosure follows a statement by Theresa May, the Home Secretary, in which she said there had been “complacency” by universities about Islamic extremism.

Qasim Rafiq, a spokesman for the Federation of Student Islamic Societies, invited Green to speak at UCL along with two speakers from the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir and another who has supported the Taliban.

Since then, Green has been invited to give lectures at London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies, Queen Mary and Bart’s and at UCL.

A spokesman for UCL said the inquiry had been aware of the speech but added that according to the law that cannot operate a ‘no platform’ policy in relation to speakers with controversial, distasteful or even repugnant views. (Source)
So when a Muslim says, "According to Islam, we are in a permanent state of war with those who oppose Islam," it's perfectly acceptable. But when I say, "According to Islam, Muslims are in a permanent state of war with those who oppose Islam," I'm a racist, Islamophobic, hate-mongering bigot.

Praise be to Allah and peace be unto you. Is there a video of this complete lecture? If so, will you post it?

This guy was in Toronto just last year. If he tries to come back again, at least we now have something to indict him as a threat to national security, just like Zakir Naik (whom we've already banned from entering Canada).

So-called Western bigotry is wisdom.
We are wise enough to know what is ours, and persistent enough to protect it.
The preservation of Western civilization and Judeo-Christian culture with it will prove this creature wrong.
He's making a statement that is valid only in the present. Over the generations, his idea can be hollowed out like a corpse at autopsy.
In the West, stale ideas lose their authority.
This is not Islam.

The issue really is that they may be in a state of war with that that offend Islam (all infidels!) but until they ACT you are pre-judging. Right? I mean really. Get some ideology going here. What do you believe that is in opposition to Islam that can be sprayed in their face? How about the First Amendment? All day every day, 7x24, you bash their refusal to support the First Amendment and therefore, they ARE anti-American. Sounds pretty simple to me. And, Sheesh, from now on wear invisible video on some of your staff because you'll catch great stuff after they bash the one in the open.
