Radical Islamic cleric quits UK for Lebanon


Good News, We dont need radicals Islamic. We need Muslims who understand and respect our British culture and share common value.

LONDON (Reuters) – An outspoken British-based Islamic cleric has left the country in the wake of the government’s pledge to crack down on radical Islamists, a close associate of the cleric said on Monday. Syrian-born Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed, who lived in Britain for 20 years, left for Lebanon on Saturday and does not plan to return, said the associate, the former leader of a now-defunct radical Islamist group.

“He left London via Heathrow airport on Saturday morning. I received confirmation later that same day,” said Anjem Choudary, former head of the al Muhajiroun group, which Bakri worked with.
