Suicide attacks
Anjem Choudary
Claims that two Britons were behind a suicide bombing have shocked many in the UK
In a HARDtalk interview on 5 May, Anjem Choudary - UK Organiser, Al Muhajiroun, refuses to condemn suicide attacks.


Last week's suicide bombing in Tel Aviv has focused attention on a British based Muslim organisation that offered spiritual guidance to one of the alleged bombers and has been accused of training them.

Anjem Choudary, the leader of Al Muhajiroun in the UK, denies the accusation but has refused to condemn the attack.

He says people are eager to support their Muslim brothers and sisters in the Occupied Territories, and believes that the suicide bombings in the name of jihad are legitimised by the Koran.

Mr Choudary says the ultimate sacrifice for a Muslim is to lay down his life for the sake of Allah and the struggle of Jihad.
