Islamists Hold Funeral Prayers for Osama Bin Laden in London, Chanting: "Obama, Watch Your Back" and "Democracy, Burn in Hell!"

Following are excerpts from a demonstration and funeral prayers for Osama Bin Laden in front of Regent's Park Mosque in London. The footage was posted on the Internet on May 6, 2011.

British Islamist: You need to look to the US government. They are the real terrorists. They are the ones who are killing many innocent Muslims. They are killing your brothers. They are killing your sisters. Are we not going to respond, my dear Muslims, while these infidels come out so arrogantly, saying that they are victorious, and they are the ones who are establishing justice?

What justice is there for the Muslims? I ask you, what justice is there for those people in Afghanistan? What justice is there for those people in Iraq? My dear Muslims, come and join us. Come and respond to the calls of these Western governments. Let us show them that the Muslims are here, that the Muslims will respond…

Another British Islamist: I ask for Allah's refuge from Satan. In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate. My dear Muslims, once again we have gathered here, outside Regents' Park Mosque on Friday. The reason is that today is the day when the Islamic nation is gathered here, gathered in masses.

Brothers and sisters, ask yourself this question: How many times will we tolerate the infidels, the disbelievers, killing our Muslims, slaughtering, butchering, murdering our brothers and sisters? And they say justice has been done. What kind of justice is that? Look at the figures in Afghanistan and Iraq. Look at the Muslim prisoners in Belmarsh and Guantanamo Bay. All of these prisons are full of Muslims, yet again, they say justice has been done. How many Muslims, without any charge whatsoever, are behind bars?

[…]

My dear Muslims, this Muslim nation is one unique body, exclusive to all others. The land is one, the honor is one, the trust is one, and the peace is one. Today, we see that a war is being waged against the Muslim nation. A war is being waged against the Muslim community. A war is being waged against Islam and the Muslims. Yet again, they say justice has been done.


British Islamist Anjem Choudary: We need to make a stance. Today, we are talking about the injustice that has been done. For Obama, killing an old man [Bin Laden] and his family in his home is justice – the same justice with B-52 bombers, the same justice as they carpet-bombed Iraq, the same justice, my dear brothers, in the Muslim world.

That is the justice of the Americans – occupation, murder, mayhem, imprisonment. That is the only justice that they know. We are here to say: That is injustice. Whenever you have man-made law, whenever you rule by other than what Allah has revealed, you will have injustice, you will have oppression.

The biggest Satan, the biggest oppressor, the biggest criminal in the world today is Barack Obama, his henchmen, and his allies. So we are here to say: USA, you will pay…

Crowds: USA, you will pay…

Anjem Choudary: … the Shari'a is on its way!

In Arabic:

London-based Egyptian Islamist Yasser Al-Sirri: Suffice to say that Sheik Osama Bin Laden died facing [the enemy], and did not retreat. He died an honorable death, of which we are envious. We should cry over ourselves not over him. Dear brothers, may Allah have mercy upon Sheik Osama Bin Laden. May Allah absolve him and have mercy upon him.
