Birmingham's extreme Muslims exposed
HARDLINE preachers delivering messages of hate and intolerance to Birmingham's Muslim community have been exposed in a shocking investigation.
Undercover footage of hate-filled sermons condemning Jews, homosexuals and other nonbelievers and calling for British democracy to be torn down and replaced by an Islamic state, were broadcast by the Despatches programme on Channel 4.
Last night's chilling documentary saw undercover reporters spend months secretly filming a notorious preacher at the Green Lane Mosque in Small Heath. They also filmed lectures at the Jamia Mosque in Sparkbrook.
The preachers filmed in the documentary were said to be followers of the hardline Wahhabisim branch of Islam which originates from Saudi Arabia.
Visiting Cleric Abu Usamah was filmed at Green Lane calling Jews and Christians "enemies" to Muslims and condemned the 'kuffaar' - the name given to non-believers.
Although he said he did not agree with Osama Bin Laden's murderous actions, he said he was better "than a million George Bushs, he's better than a thousand Tony Blairs," because he is a Muslim.
Abu Usamah, an Afro-American convert to Islam, said: "If I were to call homosexuals perverted, dirty, filthy dogs who should be murdered, that's my freedom of speech, isn't it?"
And in a reference to Government, he said: "Allah has not given those people who are kuffaar a way over the believer. They shouldn't be in authority. Muslims shouldn't be satisfied with living in anything other than a total Islamic state."
He urged worshippers to discriminate against homosexuals but in a way that ensured they did not break the law.
Abu Usamah appeared to condemn terrorism, but then predicted that an army of Muslims would soon arise to wage 'jihad' - or holy war - against non-believers.
He said: "They will fight in the cause of Allah. I encourage all of you to be from among them, to begin to cultivate ourselves for the time that is approaching - where the tables are going to turn and the Muslims are going to be in the position of being uppermost in strength."
