Programmers at a radio station in the United Kingdom thought it would be a good idea to broadcast pre-recorded lectures by Anwar Al-Awlaki. Al-Awlaki was an influential cleric who promoted radical Islamic extremism. Al-Awlaki was reported killed by a US drone strike in 2011.
Ofcom (the British equivalent of the FCC) had serious concerns over Iman FM’s decision after receiving complaints that the station was airing lectures by a “widely-known terrorist leader and al-Qaeda recruiter.”
The lectures were a direct call to action for members of the Muslim community to prepare for and carry out violent action against non-believers.
Ofcom suspended ImanFM’s radio station’s license and warned managers that they had 21 days to explain themselves or have the channel shut down – permanently.
Ofcom stated that the broadcasts “condone, promote and encourage violent behavior towards non-Muslim people”
In their defense, Iman FM managers claimed that the broadcasts were in line with their mission statement of “equipping the generation towards a cohesive society.”
Right, by telling Muslims to murder non-believers!
Allen B. West reports:
In the last 100 years, the United Kingdom has experienced one of the more dramatic transformations in cultural and social identity than any country in recent memory.
Once the symbol of the colonial movement and the purveyor of Western values, the country of 65 million people has been nearly overtaken (just look at London) by a draconian radical Islamic movement vehemently opposed to assimilation, peace, tolerance, stability and law and order.
