Islamic cleric says Ireland is a 'legitimate target - Belfast Telegraph

Belfast Telegraph: "Islamic cleric says Ireland is a 'legitimate target'

A notorious British-based Islamic extremist has said Ireland is a 'legitimate' target for al-Qa'ida terror attacks.

Anjem Choudary, who has close links to the infamous hate preacher, Omar Bakri Mohammed, said the use of Shannon Airport as a stop-off for US warplanes justifies Ireland being attacked.

The solicitor (38) said: 'If your government wants to support the atrocities in Afghanistan they can expect some repercussions,' and added that Ireland had 'opened itself' to attacks from radical Muslims linked to al-Qa'ida.

Choudary even said that terrorists have the right to kill indiscriminately since American bombers did not pick and choose military targets in Iraq."
