The Sun reported Exiled preacher of hate Omar Bakri has begged the Royal Navy to rescue him from war-torn Beirut. The Muslim cleric who fled Britain last year, tried to board a ship full of women and children yesterday but was turned away. He also wrote to the British embassy asking to be allowed back on “humanitarian grounds”.
We should help this poor troubled man. We should not send him back to Londinistan; that would just be stupid. Initially I was going to say send him to the Sudan, but I realized they are Sunnis there, just as he is, so we should send him to Iran and let the Shias take care of him.In an email to officials, dole scrounger Bakri pleaded: “The current situation in Beirut left me without any choice but to appeal to you to grant me a visit visa to see my children for one month.” But his bid to sneak on one of our ships was blocked at harbour gates by sharp-eyed officials. Bakri, 46, left his family in Edmonton, North London, last August and went to Lebanon after a Sun campaign to kick him out.
C.S. Scott blogged How utterly amusing and ironic.
Blue Crab blogged Boo hoo. I feel for this guy. I really do. Disgust and contempt describes it adequately.
CQ blogged Britain has thus far refused, and an evacuation crew kicked him off a ship in Beirut when he attempted to stow away. Why should they allow him to return? He preached hate and war, praised al-Qaeda, and railed endlessly about the evils of the West and Zionists. Now he finds himself in the middle of the war he actively demanded and pursued, and all of a sudden he wants the Western infidels to rescue him from it. What a tool.
Bryan blogged That’s crazy. But it’s not the craziest thing. The craziest thing is that if his letter hits the right desk, one occupied by some Arabist or leftwinger, Bakri stands a good chance of getting out of the war his pals started and into Londonistan, where he can get to work starting the next one.
Michael van der Galien blogged Bakri is of course the same person who preached violence and nicknamed the terrorists who carried out 9/11 the "Magnificent 19". See, there's humor everywhere.
