What the Islamist really think

Just as the Muslim Council of Britain releases it's very pleasing statement condemning suicide bombings and telling Muslims to go to the police with any information they have it appears that the people that they are talking to aren't going to listen. In an interview aired on Al-Jazeera TV on July 8, 2005 the head of the Al-Maqreze Centre for Historical Studies, Hani Al-Siba'i. The whole thing is a bit of a culture shock, with blatant anti-semitism and views that would be considered extreme if they where uttered in mainstream british culture no matter who said them just breezily allowed to stand.

But it really warms up towards the end said the that not only Muslims shouldn't listen to them but that bombing civilians was justified:
Al-Siba'i: The term "civilians" does not exist in Islamic religious law. Dr. Karmi is sitting here, and I am sitting here, and I'm familiar with religious law. There is no such term as "civilians" in the modern Western sense. People are either of Dar Al-Harb or not.

These institutes, like the Islamic Association (of Britain), represent white-collar people, the effendis, people with "prestige." They only represent their own interests and do not mix in society. They don't know... Ask other Muslims... People see them only on their TV screens. They don't participate in the demonstrations for the poor. they are not interested in people's problems. We invite them, and they don't show up.

the statement "They only represent their own interests and do not mix in society" is a bit rich coming from an Al-Qaeda apologist. Perhaps it is just a factor of the way that Islamic society in Britain has sealed itself within it's colonies that anyone that operates within native culture cannot be seen as operating within the society they recognise.
