Oh London

With london's elections looming soon, a group of muslims set out to particpate in the political process, by declaring that any muslim who votes is an apostate. Satire is officially dead! The extreme Islamist group accused of threatening George Galloway and hijacking a meeting of moderate Muslims is planning to step up its direct action campaign to stop fellow believers from participating in the election. The Guardian can reveal that the gang of youths who stormed two election meetings this week are members of al-Ghuraaba, an offshoot of the now disbanded radical organisation al-Muhajiroun. The group's east London campaign is being run by Abdul Mueed, a student, who promised yesterday that al-Ghuraaba would continue to disrupt events and target candidates to get across its message to Muslims that they will go to hell if they vote on May 5. "It is not the lifestyle of a Muslim to vote, and it is not from Islam," Mr Mueed, 22, said last night. "George Galloway and Oona King and the heads of all the political parties are fighting Muslims, they hate the lifestyle of the Taliban and the Muslims living in Iraq, that's why they are willing to carpet bomb them all." Don't you just love it when a 22 year old student- who probably just learned how to tie his own shoes last year- makes such statements about muslims and Islam? Ohh, and you wanna know what happens if you vote, according to Mullah Mueed? The leaflet says voting for a political party is a "major apostasy and will take you outside the fold of Islam ... It will also nullify all your good deeds ... and guarantee your seat in Hellfire forever!" Sweeet! Now it all makes sense. Arabs and muslims are living in dictatorships because voting would make us all apostates. Those despotic arab leaders care about us after all, well, in the after-life anyway! Awwww... You know something though, that democracy is haram stuff, i know i heard it somewhere before. I just can't remember who said it. Rats!

I don't know whether to roll around on the ground in a fit of giggles or feel incredibly depressed. If these guys think that voting and freedom are so infidelicious, I have several countries I could recommend for them.

So these guys who used to call themselves Al-Muhajirun migrated to UK, the land of the infidels. Sounds like reverse migration/hijra.They must have forgotten that migration should be to the Muslims lands and not the other way around.

As I tell people in the US who say it's haram to vote: "Go back to where you came from."

I find it interesting that the anti-incumbent Muslim voting bloc is happening in the UK too.

What I can't figure out is why the Brit's aren't jailing this guy. Voter intimidation is a crime in most free countries.

Soldier's Dad, maybe they are waiting for Tony's next landslide election. That would certainly help spread the message to the extremists. I've got my finger's crossed for my all time favourite British PM.

I tend to go along with Nadz here... don't know whether to roll my eyes or laugh.

I'm tending toward letting the clowns boycott the election if they want to. Anyone dumb enough to think that an election boycott might accomplish something is probably too stupid to vote in the first place!

Sooo, lessee, the sort of Muslim who would buy into this skull-rot is the sort who would vote against Blair, right?

Ok, I'm waiting...what's the dowside?

It's sort of like the abortion issue: The people predisposed to have them will do so, be increasingly under-represented in the genepool of ensuing generations, and eventually the problem weeds itself right out.

And for those Muslims who are bothered about their fellows being intimidated, fear not: eventually your fellows will figure it out, and then they'll rise up and beat the crap outta these scaremongering Islamist assgobblers—with their sandals! And the British tabloids will run lots of pictures! It'll be fun!
