Should This Man Be Prosecuted

America deserved 9/11. And it was a drop in the ocean. This is what a British born Muslim cleric said on CNN. He says he owes Britain nothing and that Tony Blair is a legitimate target by Islamic extremists. Should this man be prosecuted?Any other thought?

Alex Jones did a job, for the illuminati. He exposed the truth, which was out and about anyway, and he became the big name for the Truth Movement, and the person everyone deferred to. So when he does not mention a group that are heavily involved, he is a mere distractor from the real truth. A left Gatekeeper.

Rebecca, don't waste prayers on individuals who are only doing a job on the media for money. This guy is sold out to the devil.
---frances on 2/18/08

I do believe that when a man makes a threat on another persons life then yes I believe they should be prosecuted because they may just try to carry out that threat. But I do believe we should also pray for that person as well.
---Sherrill on 2/12/08

No. Just read a few of the blogs here and you will here much the same thing, or other nonsense that is detrimential to people's very soul. That is for God alone to judge. Perhaps expulsion from said countries, but jail no.

This happened quite some time ago but I personally think that the man should have been arrested and locked up. Our British government is afraid of arresting moslems because of the backlash but they are quick to arrest others for the most rediculous 'crimes'. Not paying one's council tax is seen as a criminal act but stirring up strife and hatred and encouraging violence (if you're a muslim) is not, it would seem.

Sorry, I cannot take anything on TV or radio seriously. 911 was a coup d'etat on the mass media.
---frances on 2/11/08

Our own govt did it research it out for your selves. Loose change is a good documentary. And Alex Jones has a lot of very interesting info on Our govt

Prosecuted for what? I have heard Americans say and do worse. He said something America probably needs to know. The truth will prevail.Most people in this country don't know what goes on in America from day to day. Somebody needs to inform them.
---Robyn on 2/11/08

Not for speaking out what he believes. He is all twisted, up side down and all around. I will say that for this poor lost soul.
---catherine on 2/11/08

I believe this man has the ability to lead others to do the same as he would do. I pray every day that America will NOT PUT UP WITH these arrogant, yellow bellies who cover their faces, christian hating, God hating extremist. They need to be shot.
---shira on 2/10/08

Yes he should be but he won't be. To do so would be considered politically insensitive I'm guessing. However if any Christian said something that even vaguely sounded like a thread against ANYONE they'd be in gaol before they knew what was happening.

**This is what a British born Muslim cleric said on CNN. **

I don't know what British law provides in this case. But I do know something about how the news works.

Would CNN show interviews with Muslim leaders saying that Blair should be supported, or condemning violence even in word?

I think not.

It's always the loud, the unusual, and the nasty we see on TV news.
---Jack on 9/13/06

If America was an inside job like many people think, we did deserve it. You cannot have a corrupt government and not expect to suffer the consequences. Why do so many people have to die for people to wake up? 911 was a slap in the face and so was the Katrina scandal. Shameful!
---Jacques on 8/24/06

RebeccaD, I agree with you.
---bethie on 8/24/06

Would throwing him in jail make a difference? Would he change? No, unless God helps him. This man needs our prayers instead of being prosecuted. But I guess it is easier to throw the book at him instead of praying for him hua?
---Rebecca_D on 8/23/06

The cleric who mouthed off about the U.S. and Tony Blair could be anywhere. CNN goes everywhere.

Rebecca, people get persecuted all the time for speaking their minds. There is a thing going around now where jesse jackson spoke his mind. He insulted the jew. jackson has been insulted by others. You can't get in public and speak your mind. I still say this person should be dealt with harshly.
---shira on 8/23/06

Correction - I have just realised, having re-read the question, that this man was not in Britain when he said these words so it might not have been the offence that I thought it was. I hope that his words will be suitably monitored when he returns to Britain though.
---M.P. on 8/23/06

Money is not the root of all evil as most Christians profess, Its the LOVE of money. Like every other verses taken out of context, judging is the same. The Bible clearly says that we are not to render inaccurate or unfair judgments (Prov. 24:23; 31:9; John 7:24). Paul tells us in 1 Corith that we are to judge all things. All judgment must be based upon the guidelines shown in the Bible.
---Steven on 8/22/06

Since when did it became a sin for a person to speak their mind? that is all he done, what harm did he do? We are told to judge people righteously, and that is it. This man isn't an American so yeah he would say this and sadly get by with it.

Shannon-- 9/11 did get us praying again for one another and our country...for probably about 3 weeks! I thought it would be a "wake up call", but instead, we groaned a little and went back to sleep.

When the subject comes up now everyone says "yes, we remember 9/11. It was horrible." But if a few changes (especially inconvenient ones) are suggested to prevent another attack, people say, "There you go again, trying to SCARE us!"
---Donna2277 on 8/22/06

It is a crime in Britain to incite violence. To say that Tony Blair is a 'legitimate target' sounds very much like a incitement to Islamic extremist to go 'get him'. What could this man possibly mean should be done to Mr. Blair that would not involve violence?? I'm no fan of Mr. Blair but I want see him resign, not be assassinated.
---M.P. on 8/22/06

Rev Herb - I absolutely agree with you on this. But the word does say, "Speak the truth in love."

A preacher said that God asked him, "What do you want to say to this man?" (this man stole something from this preacher). The preacher said, "I want to tell him he'll pay for his sin in hell." God said, "No, don't tell him that, tell him he's forgiven," This preacher really DID NOT want to do that, but he did and the outcome was this man got saved.
---Donna9759 on 8/22/06

Me too. Rev_Herb is always right on! We dont judge people's salvation but we are told to judge their doctrine. If they are spreading false doctrine we are to "receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:" 2 John 1:10 I hate to say it, Americas definately a cess pool of immorality... even in the churches. It makes me sad and all I can do is pray and try to be a representation of what God wants us to be, even when it's unpopular, because it is his opinion that counts. Right on Herb!

Did he break a law? I dont think it's against the law to talk. Freedom of speech, lots of people died for that right. If this man (lack of better word) breaks a law-then, yes, prosecute all the way.
---sue on 8/22/06

Rev.Herb: I love your answer. This nation has become "tolerant" because they are afraid they will offend someone.I admire your stand and your blog. When we do make a stand, we are flogged even here on cn. Nevertheless, I will continue to stand for what is right. 911 did get our attention. As a country, we need to take a stand and pray. The muslims want us DEAD. How plain can that be? They want us DEAD.
---shira on 8/22/06

In the UK we are too weak to prosecute all who say that sort of thing.
We have here freedom of speech!
---alan8869_of_UK on 8/22/06

Prosecuted? Has he committed a crime? Probably not.
It's not for me to judge. He will be judged by the God of Israel. (May he go to meet Him REAL soon!)

I also heard this clergy say the reason he made that statement was because Americans are too cocky, rich and inferior. Not that I would ever in a millions would want 9/11 to happen again, it did get our attention. As for us pew warmers living a carefree life I believe 9/11 got us praying again for one another and our country.
---Shannon on 8/21/06

Jesus did say vengeance is mine, saith the Lord. Do you think that is how He meant us to deal with killers? The kind of sympathy I have read on this blog is the reason these killers are walking our streets, plotting against the very nation that educated most of them. The danger with these kinds of people is we don't know who they are and when we find out, we won't do anything.
---shira on 8/21/06

Yes somebody who says things like that should be prosecuted. I believe it is time that the whole world rises up and lets the Muslims know that we have had enough, and that we will not take any more that they are dishing out to us. My goodness, they want to rule the whole world with hatred and evil and something needs to be said. They are just so manipulative and want their own way in everything, even the school girls wearing the veil no matter the school's rules.

What does British law provide? That's the real question, and I don't think anybody here would know that.
I know there are laws against sedition in the USA.

The bible teaches us we are to judge. People today are afraid to judge because they might hurt someones feeling. I live in the United States of the offended. People get offended if you say homosexually is wrong. People get offended if you preach Jesus Christ and the blood. Many have even removed the blood songs from the church song book not to offend anyone. Hogwash. Christians need go get a back bone and stand for right no matter who gets offended.
---Rev_Herb on 8/21/06

I think we should NOT judge anyone. All judgement is left up to God. We as Christians are to pray for the lost, not judge them. This man needs Jesus and needs him quickly. I just heard an anointed man of God say that we need to move from the judgement seat to the mercy seat and speak the truth in love and faith, nothing else. If the Lord leads, then pray for Him. Ask Father what to do about him if he bugs you.
