The Corner

The one and only.



The London Sunday Times (link requires subscription) has a story that an Algerian ‘cleric’ by the name of Abu Obeida has told British Muslims that they have a duty to fight allied troops in the event of an invasion of Iraq. The paper reports that in a subsequent interview Obeida softened his line, saying that British Muslims should not actually attack targets within the UK. Those who were in the country applying for asylum or on visas should also not attack their hosts. Well, thanks for that Mr. Obeida!

Needless to say Obeida is himself an asylum seeker in the UK, a country he appears to despise. The Sunday Times reports that he and his family are on welfare.

Of course they are.
