Report: Anjem Choudary Tied to Jihadists in Syria

Really, you think? And this is .... news?

Groups linked to hate preacher Anjem Choudary have been labelled, the 'single biggest gateway to terrorism in recent British history'.

The radical Islamist has been identified as the link between groups who encourage the safe passage of British and European Muslims into Syria where they join Al Qaeda-linked forces.

According to a study by Hope Not Hate, organisations affiliated with Choudary have encouraged in the region of 80 young British Muslims to join the fighting in Syria.

They may also have had a hand in the recruitment of 300 more on the continent, the report said.

I don't know what the UK should do with this guy, but a good start would be cutting off his welfare benefits which is how he makes a living.

1 I know this smells of a conspiracy theory, but I believe British intelligence don't want him to be arrested under terrorism charges, because Anjem Choudhary is the guy who allows UK islamic fundamentalists to come out in the open, so that intelligence agencies can easily monitor them. And don't forget many people linked to Anjem Choudhary have been arrested for terrorism offences, because British intelligence was able to monitor them, thanks to Anjem Choudhary, who provides an open platform for the islamic fanatics. In reality Anjem is kinda indirectly helping British intelligence, without himself realising he is doing that.

2 Cut off his welfare benefits.

In the UK that would be considered inhuman, racist and anti Islam.

3 Wet work. Soviet style. Like getting poisoned by a discreet jab from an umbrella or some such thing. This is a war. An existential war and he needs to die.

4 The only thing keeping this waste of skin alive is that the Brits are probably concerned he has a few sleeper cells up his sleeve, and that they can't figure out what to charge him with.

In the US, he would be charged under the RICO act if authorities couldn't find anything else. Do the Brits have such laws? I don't know...

5 In the US, he would be asked to stay in the White House.

6 In the US he would run for political office in Chicago while making $200,000 a year at the University of Chicago.
