The verdict is in on a crowd of rioting Muslim extremists in England. Guilty!

One Umran Javed was found guilty of inciting violence by shouting “bomb bomb Denmark, bomb bomb USA” and such. The disgraceful demonstrations came after Danish cartoons depicted Muhammed in unflattering images were published in Denmark.

Muslims Inciting Violence in London
Hatred in the Name of Islam

BBC has the full story.

A British Muslim has been found guilty of soliciting murder during a London rally against cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad.

Umran Javed 27, of Birmingham, was also convicted of stirring up racial hatred by a jury at the Old Bailey.

Javed told a crowd of hundreds at the February 2006 protest: “Bomb, bomb Denmark, bomb, bomb USA.”

He had claimed the chants against the two countries were “just slogans” and that he regretted saying them.

Remanding him in custody, Judge Brian Barker said he would not pass sentence until several other trials relating to the protest had concluded – expected to be in April.

The maximum penalty for soliciting murder is life in prison.

There were disturbances in the public gallery when the verdict was read out, and one man was removed by security staff.

Of course there was an Islamic disturbance. Yawn. But I’m sorry to say I’m mixed on all this.

We would all be happier if the religion of Islam would live up to its phony image as a “religion of peace.” Let’s face it – it isn’t a religion of peace at all. All of the conflicts in the world today involve Muslim’s fighting with each other or Muslims fighting with others. Those are the facts which one is compelled to notice.

But should it be a crime to say “bomb bomb Denmark” in a public demonstration? What if I were to say “bomb bomb Umran Javed” or “bomb bomb Syria” or “bomb bomb Lebanon.” In fact, I believe I’ve argued for the bombing of Syria before. Bomb bomb hateful Islamic extremists, all of them. Arrest me now.

So I’m conflicted by this verdict. And I’m not even saying it is a “slippery slope,” which is always a vaporous argument. It seems this verdict may already brings us far down the slope.

Perhaps the answer is we are at war with Militant Islam. And in war you choose sides and stop playing fair. Your thoughts?
