Another wacko terrorist or fringe Muslim who has nothing to do with Islam or a run-of-the-mill, vanilla fundamentalist Muslim? Ask a Christian in a Muslim dominated society and he will give you his opinion.

The Islamic cleric charged with soliciting murder and incitement to racial hatred told his followers that they had to train in order to “bleed the enemy”, an Old Bailey jury heard yesterday. In videos shown to the court, he also described England as a “toilet” and suggested the Christian church was riddled with homosexuality, iniquity and black magic.
Sheikh Abu Hamza, the former cleric at the Finsbury Park mosque in north London, is pleading not guilty to nine charges of soliciting murder, four charges of inciting racial hatred and one of owning a document useful to a person committing or preparing acts of terrorism. He is pleading not guilty to all charges.
Yesterday the jury was shown two videos of Abu Hamza addressing an audience in the late 1990s.
“The first thing to do is be trained … Every court is a target, … You have to bleed the enemy whether you work alone or work with a group or you work with your family. Work has to be done. Then after you have done that, obviously you will be on the run.”
On “bleeding the enemy,” he told his audience: “Like you imagine you have only one small knife and you have a big animal in front of you, the size of the knife you can’t slaughter him with this. You have to stab him here and there until he bleeds to death, until he dies … This is the first needle, this is what the brothers in Algeria now are doing, they are bleeding them. This is the first stage of the jihad.”
The trial continues.
