British Muslim found guilty of soliciting murder
Umran Javed had chanted ‘Bomb, bomb Denmark, bomb, bomb USA’, but insisted in court that this was ‘just a slogan’, and he ‘didn’t mean it’.
The verdict comes as a relief, if only because it reinforces the principle of equality under the law. It has been the recent perception of many that there is one law for Christians, and another for the minority faiths. If Muslims were permitted to incite murder because Jihad demands it, and then to assert that Jihad is above the laws of England, we would eventually live in a nation with two antithetical codes of law. This is not the path we should pursue, and no appeal to postmodern relativism or pluralism should be permitted to subjugate the nation’s foundational Judeo-Christian laws and culture to those of foreign gods.
