The Muslim cleric who warned Sean Hannity that radical Islam is at America’s backdoor personifies the threat to the West, and it is time to issue a wakeup call — particularly in the United States — that the menace is real, a terrorism expert said Thursday on Fox News.
Commenting on Hannity’s fiery exchange with Sheik Anjem Choudary (pictured)
on Wednesday, Brigitte Gabriel of ACT! For America also said the cleric was a perfect example of a Western-born Muslim falling under a fanatical spell.
In addition, Gabriel noted the spread of Islamic radicalism, and the sheik’s threat the world eventually will succumb to Shariah, is fueled by the Muslim Brotherhood, as part of a master plan.
“Here is a perfect example of someone born in Britain, into a Muslim family, [he] became an attorney in Britain. Now, how can someone like him become so radicalized to the point where he loathes the West?” Gabriel said. “I mean here is someone who was exposed to our Judeo-Christian value system, our way of life, our democracy and he despises it.
“This is the problem we are facing all over the West right now,” she warned.
Gabriel said Choudary couldn’t bring himself to say the people who died on Sept. 11, 2001, were innocent as “he considers them all criminals, because Americans – infidels – who are not Muslims, who pay taxes to the United States government, who fund the wars against Muslims, they are not innocent – they deserve to die.”
Hannity conceded he and Choudary agreed on one point: “That the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic radicals, want to take over Egypt, and Yemen, and Jordan, and the Middle East, and Israel, and the United States.” He showed Gabriel a clip of the video of their heated discussion on Wednesday, and she said:
“This is pure Islamic fanaticism. Under the banner of Islam, Muslims murdered Christians in Egypt, Christians in Lebanon, Armenians in Turkey, Hindus in India, Jews in Arab lands – all this happened before they ever turned their eyes to the United States, before we ever went into Iraq, or Kuwait, or anywhere else.
“This is Islamic radicalism awakening worldwide, driven by the Muslim Brotherhood, to put the world under Islamic Sharia law,” she cautioned. “Their true colors are shining and it is time for the world to wake up, especially for us here in the United States, and learn the lesson of what is happening in Europe – and what’s coming to the United States.”
