London: Muslims Promoting Event With Photograph Of New York In Flames

A POSTER showing New York being destroyed by meteors from the sky—to promote a New Year’s Day ‘end of time’ lecture at the East London mosque

From Up Pompeii:

This is how Islam sees the next  year and those that follow, they see the destruction of the West and a new beginning for Islam in our countries.

This is their New year wish to us.

Needless to say I and many others will do all we can to prevent this and change the meaning to be the end of Islam in the UK.

The mosque and Islamic centre is allowing organisers to run the all-day event including a video link-up with controversial Imam Anwar al-Awlaki, who America says had connections with New York’s 9/11 attacks.

Al-Awlaki, who gives his talk by video link from Yemen, was named by America’s Department for Homeland Security for having acted as a ‘spiritual advisor’ to three of the men involved in 2001’s September 11 attacks.

Now the poster advertising tomorrow’s event at Whitechapel—showing meteors crash down on Manhattan, setting fire to the city and shattering the Statue of Liberty—has been slammed by the Tory Opposition leader on the local authority.

“The poster strikes me as extremely inappropriate,” Cllr 
Peter Goldstold the East London Advertiser today (Dec-31).

“It would be very disturbing if an event was to be held which damaged the good work the mosque has done. The mosque plays an important role in the life of Tower Hamlets.”

The US Under Secretary for Home Defence, 
Charles Allen, has accused al-Awlaki of using video links to incite terrorism.

He said in an address in October at Nashville, Tennessee: “Anwar al-Awlaki, an Al Qaida supporter and former spiritual leader to three of the September 11 hijackers, targets US Muslims with radical online lectures, encouraging terrorist attacks from his new home in Yemen.

“Al Qaida continues to target American Muslims susceptible to supporting violence in the name of religion.”

The US embassy in London declined to comment on the New Year’s Day event.

But an East London Mosque spokesman said: “Mr Awlaki has not been proven guilty in a court of law. Everyone is entitled to their point of view.

“The subject matter is about judgement and the afterlife, a common theme in many religions.”

The meteors reining down on New York in the poster referred to ‘the end of the world’ which had no official reference to September 11, according to the mosque. 

An American embassy spokesman in London said: “The US is a strong supporter of free speech—but that comes with responsibility.

“Three thousand people from 90 countries died on September 11.”
Oh, by the way, when we say, "Let us make it the end of their time, we are speaking only in the Apocalyptic sense.

Got a larger version of that poster? I'd be interested in the detail behind which can't really be seen.

Either way, blowing up New York is a very odd choice from an Islamic organisation, the meme is key.

No, this is the only version of the poster I have seen.

What do you think would be a more likely choice for the Jihado-nutsies?

Shug Niggurath said...

Well my point was that it's an contentious image, obviously chosen to stir up controversy - and possibly because they think it fitting. What I meant by odd was that they must have known this.

A more fitting image about the end of time and the future in green and black? What about the return of their hidden imam?

Pastorius said...

The way I look at it is they are evil. Evil people don't have a goal they want to get to. Instead, their goal is destruction.

It's like how Ayers and his cronies in the Weather Underground had no plan for what they were going to do with America, after they had destroyed it.

These Muslims are merely stating their goal; destruction. Past that, they have no goal.

Notice, when Muslims have no Infidels to kill, they set in on killing each other.
