April 2004: "When they bomb London, the bigger the better!"

For his 21 April 2004 Evening Standard essay, 'Terror On The Dole,' David Cohen interviewed five 'young British Muslims,' a former business student, 'a social worker, an IT specialist, a security guard and a financial adviser.'

Here is what they said:
"As far as I'm concerned, when they bomb London, the bigger the better. I know it's going to happen because Sheikh bin Laden said so. Like Bali, like Turkey, like Madrid - I pray for it, I look forward to the day." (Abdul Haq - social worker) 
"When terrorism happens, you will only have yourselves to blame." (Abu Malaahim - IT specialist) 
"I would like to see the Mujahideen coming into London and killing thousands, whether with nuclear weapons or germ warfare." (Abu Yusuf - financial adviser) 
"You want to know how far I will go. When Allah said in the Koran 'kill and be killed', that's what I want. I want a martyr operation, where I kill my enemy." (Abu Musa - security guard)
"Islam is not like Christianity, where they turn the other cheek... When I watched those planes go into the Twin Towers, I felt elated. That magnificent action split the world into two camps: you were either with Islam and al Qaeda, or with the enemy...

I am a Muslim living in Britain, and I give my allegiance only to Allah... (and ) the worldwide domination of Islam...

When a bomb attack happens here, I won't be against it, even if it kills my own children." (Sayful Islam - former business economics student, now 'claiming housing benefit and jobseeker's allowance' and leader of the Luton branch of al-Muhajiroun)

When 'a bomb attack' happened fourteen months later on 7 July 2005, it didn't kill Sayful Islam's children but it did kill 52 innocent Londoners. One presumes that he did not have a problem with that 'magnificent action.' Perhaps he even felt 'elated' when he heard about it. Maybe he even feels 'elated' when he thinks about it now.

You know, because of his allegiance to Allah and the 'worldwide domination of Islam?'
