A British imam gave a television interview this week in which he defended acts of terror, including the beheading of foreign journalists, as consistent with the teachings of the Koran, Breitbart News blogger John Sexton reported.

London-based cleric Anjem Choudary told Russia Today that "terrorizing the enemy is in fact part of Islam" in an interview with the English-language RT news program, "Worlds Apart."

Choudary cited a passage of the Koran that calls for Muslims to use "steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah."

"So terrorizing the enemy is in fact part of Islam," Choudary said. "I mean this is something that we must embrace and understand as far as the jurisprudence of Islam is concerned."

Sexton wrote that, "Choudary went on to say that Muslims make no distinction between civilians and armed forces since civilians elect the leaders who direct the armed forces."

Choudary, also a lawyer who lectures on Sharia law, headed an Islamic group, Al Muhajiroun, which was banned in the United Kingdom.

Two attendees of Al Muhajiroun events were arrested in the 2013 murder of a British Army veteran of the Afghanistan war, who was stabbed to death in broad daylight on a busy London street.

Choudary has sparred with Fox News' Sean Hannity and CNN's Brian Stelter in recent interviews, and even spawned an anti-Choudary Facebook page.
