London has given the thumbs-up to a Muslim cleric with a past that includes teaching how to kill gays to come to the city and deliver 10 days worth of speeches and lectures at an organization that’s backed by Iran’s government.
Shaykh Hamza Sodagar, who delivered remarks earlier this year on “one of five” ways to kill homosexuals, is now set to speak at the Islamic Republic of Iran School in London.
Just how fiery was his speech against gays a few months ago?
As Breitbart reported, a recently surfaced video reveals his remarks: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”
And it’s not as if Sodagar wants to keep his views to himself.
“According to a speaker biography, Mr. Sodagar regards himself as a ‘role model’ for ‘young Muslims all around the world.’” …
“As noted in 2014, he has also claimed Europeans and Americans are controlled by a ‘Zionist web of media … trying to control the minds of the people.’”
His speaking event was organized by the Ahlulbayt Islamic Mission.
So just to get this straight: Ahlulbayt, who not only advocates for the killings of homosexuals, but explains in an easy to remember five-point bullet list just how to do it, is granted a 10-day pass to London by British authorities – and not just to tour, but rather spread his vicious rhetoric and Islamist views.
But you know who’s banned from Britain? Pamela Geller. Robert Spencer. Radio giant Michael Savage. Why? For telling the truth – or, as the government there considers it, for hate speech.
Here’s what Spencer says about the matter, on his Jihad Watch website:
“Shaykh Hamza Sodagar lives in Iran. That means he was admitted into Britain in order to give these lectures. I am, of course, banned by the British government from traveling to Britain because I noted (correctly) that Islam is ‘a religion and is a belief system that mandates warfare against unbelievers.’
“It is unacceptable to say that in Britain today. Shaykh Hamza Sodagar said: ‘If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.’ That is acceptable to say in Britain today.
“So apparently believing that Islam mandates warfare against unbelievers is unacceptable so long as one is against that warfare. If one is for it and preaches it, that’s just fine.
“Britain is finished.”
