September 25, 2006 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - The head of the Muslim Council of Britain - Adul Bari - is making the threat that 2 million terrorists in the UK could attack it in the wake of the arrest of 24 British Muslims implicated in a plot involving a conspiracy to blow up 10 airliners enroute to the United States
Mounting a public relations offensive, Bari is portraying Muslims as the victims of discrimination and blaming the police for causing terrorism.
Feeling emboldened by the UK's inability and unwillingness to crack down on radical Islamic activity, Britain's largest Muslim organization, is beginning to sound like Al Muhajiroun, the group which praised the 9/11 hijackers as "the magnificent 19" and whose leader Omar Bakri Mohammed, fled to Lebanon last year in aftermath of the London bombings which involved adherents of his group.
Britain's Telegraph Uk documented Bari's threat on September 9.
"Some police officers and sections of the media are demonising Muslims, treating them as if they are all terrorists, and that encourages other people to do the same. If that demonisation continues, then Britain will have to deal with two million Muslim terrorists, 700,000 of them in London. "If you attack a whole community, it becomes despondent and aggressive," he added.
Abdul Bari's overt threat, as head of one of the leading UK Muslim organizations is not the first time that his group has threatened violence. After the arrest of two Muslim brothers suspected of a chemical terror plot , he told the media that Muslims were very angry and could become violent, warning:
"Trust could break down if things are not clarified, said Abdul Bari the secretary general of Britain's largest Muslim organization. "Angry people can do anything ,angry people can even feel they should take the law into their own hands "
The Muslim Council of Britain is the UK equivalent of the American Islamist organization CAIR [Council on American Islamic Relations] and is regarded by the Blair government as a moderate civil rights organization. It's former leader Iqbal Sacranie, was knighted by the Queen in 2005, spoke at CAIR events in the United States. About Sacranie, Daniel Pipes has observed, "Among Sacranie's actions: calling for censorship of religious speech, trying to change the plot of the action series 24, boycotting Holocaust Remembrance ceremonies, denying the existence of Islamic terrorists, interpreting the Bush administration's true agenda as the "recolonization and the re-mapping of the Middle East," and accusing Israel of genocide"
Last year Abdul Bari, took over the leadership of the MCB.
It is no secret that the MCB is closely affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda. In the 1990's Yusef Islam [the former Cat Stevens] was the treasurer of the organization at the same time he was running his Muslim Aid charity which has been linked with raising money for Mujahideen fighters in Bosnia.
