"I am a preacher of hate!" MPs: "Really, want some hypocricy with that?"

Now to be fair our MPs did not really say that if the truth is to be told (not that this is in plentiful supply at Westminster but whatever no ones seems to mind).

We have the story of a 'delightful' middle aged man named Anjem Choudary. He is an Islamic cleric, whose supporters led a hate-filled protest against British troops returning from Iraq in Luton last week. He has urged his followers to give cash to front-line mujaheddin fighters. Mr. Choudary is a self-styled sharia judge and former leader of the banned group Al-Muhajiroun. On a tape which has emerged he heard telling his followers to stop spending their money on their families and divert it to Muslim soldiers waging jihad, or holy war. What a noble man indeed.

What is the moral of this story then you might ask?

Here it is:
Hypocrites are the poltroons of society regardless of shape, skin colour, race, religion or any other attribute you chose to brandish a man - his 'soul' (if such a thing is believed to exist) will be perpetual. We are not exactly seeing Mr. Choudary going over there to fight the jihads instead this coward extraordinaire huffs and puffs how other Muslims should give up their daily bread so that people in a far away land can fight for a cause they do not even understand (derived from a book dictated by old men who also themselves have no hope in hell in understanding). This is a classic case of old men talking and young men dying, in a sense not very different from our MPs. For all the malign mischief that has disposed itself from the darkest bowels of Mr. Choudary (who can comfortably avoid any prosecution or extradition thanks to that delightful Human Rights Act) our MPs have far more to answer for. One day, when the world has comfortably moved on to the next piece of sensationalist populism and when vox populi has again been ignored, they will answer for their actions. People do not forget just because the media does.
