Sorry SGecko,
I know it ends on a cliff-hanger. I watched this video on YouTube and when it ended, I tried in vain to find part 2 of 2. It would be interesting if someone could find it.

Yes PRG thats him..also..

""Since the disbandment of al-Muhajiroun, Choudary has often praised Muslim terrorists. He referred to the 11 September terrorists as "magnificent martyrs", and in 2003 appeared to endorse terrorist attacks by British Muslims, saying that al-Muhajiroun would "encourage people to fulfil their Islamic duties and responsibilities". "

Choudary got his ass handed to him. Is he the same guy who talked about the London subway bombings, saying "I can't condemn my Muslim brothers for doing this, and he didn't kill 'innocent' people because they're not Muslim"?

When Douglas Murray it on the reformations of Judaism and xtianity he made a point that many in the US made after 911. That being that Islam basically hasn't done away with the bad parts! Campbell did a wonderful job of grabbing onto this statement..unfortunately the vid ends and we dont get to hear the rest.
Campbell pointed out or rather posed the question..
"Isn't that compromising your religion? Editing it for the times in which you live?"
This I think is a true statement and should be pointed out to those who are wavering in doubt. Ultimately it should lead them to the liberation of Atheism. You don't get it both ways...either everything in their holy books is true or none of it can be trusted!! a point my father tried to make with me years ago however he was trying to say society has become to slack, but of course it planted the seeds for my own eventual liberation. Thanks for posting would love to see the rest.

The Christians in the UK are, in fact, far more liberal and secular than in the US.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_England
One has to remember that Anjem Choudary does not represent the majority of Muslims. He only represents the radical schism of the Salafi sect of Islam.
