"We call them the nutters, because that's what they are"


And again! Hizb ut Tahrir holds yet another rally in London and is, for the third consecutive time, decisively rejected by ordinary Muslims.

Al-Jazeera reports:

Several hundred people have gathered outside the Libyan embassy in Britain once more to show their support for protesters, Jacqueline Head, Al Jazeera's online reporter in London reports. However this time a small contigent appearing to represent Hizb ut Tahrir were also rallying, calling for a sharia state to be installed in Libya. The group said they were there to show their support for the Muslims in Libya. Muftah Abdelsamad, a 57-year-old Libyan living in exile in Britain for 35 years, told Al Jazeera:

We call them the nutters, because that's what they are. We are Libyans. We are Muslims... but these people don't want democracy or freedom. What do they want, dictatorship? We always lived together - Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Jews. And we're all going to live together again."

Nuff said.

"We always lived together - Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Jews. And we're all going to live together again." Taqiyya again. Tell that to the coptic Christians, and the Pakistani Christian minister who was shot dead for wanting to relax the death-penalty-carrying anti-blasphemy laws. Just wait until a nuclear caliphate is surrounding a nuclear Israel. Oh what fun.

I'm certain the vast majority of people in Iran during their revolution felt exactly that way, as the Persians were and are, very educated and decent liberal people. Sadly, it just took a few percent of religious Muslims who were dedicated and violent to set the nature of the new regime. Time will tell how things will go for the rest of the magreb now. I hope better than they did for Iran.

So, no video footage to substantiate this report. HaHa - why am I not surprised?
