BBC Headline: Bomber attacked UK Muslim leaders

anyone see this story? brought to my attention from a poster at an EU message board.

In the latest quotes released, Khan said: "Jihad is an obligation on every single one of us, men and women, and by staying at home you are turning your backs on jihad which is a major sin.

"Our so-called scholars today are content with their Toyotas and their semi-detached houses. They tell us ludicrous things like `you must obey the law of the land'."How on earth did we conquer lands in the past if we were to obey by this law? By Allah, these scholars will be brought to account."

"If they fear the British Government more than they fear Allah then they must desist in giving talks, lectures and passing fatwas and they need to stay at home - they're useless - and leave the job to the real men, the true inheritors of the prophet."

The tape also contains a message from Ayman al-Zawahri, the deputy leader of the al-Qaeda network.

Of UK clerics, he said: "These are the scholars of beggary, working to beg the pleasure of Elizabeth, head of the Church of England."

He also called England one of Islam's "severest enemies".

Another part of the video, already screened, showed him blaming the UK public for the 7 July Tube attacks.

Think we can negotiate with men like this?

Do you think leaving Iraq will appease men like this?
