Imam to Hannity: Sharia Law Is 'Coming to a Place Near You'

Wednesday, 27 Aug 2014 11:11 PM

By Greg Richter

Controversial London Imam Anjem Choudary had a heated argument with Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity on the latter's show Wednesday, eventually saying that sharia law would be imposed on the world.

Choudary has expressed support for the terror group that calls itself the Islamic State (ISIS), and when Hannity pressed him on the group's beheading and crucifying of women and children who don't convert to Islam, Choudary at first denied it.

"This is simply false. It didn't happen," he said. "This was a complete pack of lies to demonize and vilify the Islamic State."

When Hannity continued to push him, Choudary said the United States has tortured people in Guantanamo Bay and with drones. He also said Israel has killed innocent people with rockets in Gaza.

After several minutes of talking over each other, Hannity eventually told Choudary that he is a Christian and "I don't want your sharia law."

"You will have no choice, Sean," Choudary responded, smiling. "It's coming to a place near you."

"Eventually the world's going to wake up . . . and every radical Islamist like you will be wiped off the face of the earth," Hannity said. "You are a radical, and you want your religion or no religion."

Sen. John McCain appeared afterward, saying people like Choudary have perverted Islam.

"It's amusing in one respect, but in another it's really scary," McCain said.
