Zakir Naik Banned from UK: Tears on Islamist forums

You will no longer be able to see Zakir Naik at Wembley:
Britain has banned controversial Indian Islamic televangelist Zakir Naik, who once claimed that "every Muslim should be a terrorist," from entering the country, citing his "unacceptable behaviour".

Home Secretary Theresa May said 44-year-old Naik would not be allowed to enter the country under laws that can exclude anyone who writes or publishes material that can "foment, justify or glorify terrorist violence".

Of course the boys at some of our favourite terror supporting websites are very upset about this:
This is just the latest in a series of exclusion orders that the UK government has issued preventing popular Islamic speakers from visiting the UK on specious grounds to do with the terror threat. Too bad about all the nonsense regarding free speech we keep getting lectured about. When it comes right down to it, what so often matters unfortunately is power and influence, not high sounding principles. That is a shame.
(This is up at Islamic Awakening, not linking.)

"Every Muslim should be a terrorist." Sounds like a "high sounding principle" to me.
The Guardian, true to form, has Naik's supporters writing op-eds in Comment is Free. The same gentleman who penned this piece supporting Naik, has much to say about Israel on his own blog says that Israel has a well-deserved reputation "as a racist, colonial, war-mongering entity." It is not surprise then that many comments blame Naik's persona non-grata status on the "Israel Lobby."

[A quick search on YouTube will turn up many videos of Naik praising terror against Americans, Bin Laden and the famous quote "every Muslim should be a terrorist.]

Zakir Naik is not coming to Britain. We should be more concerned about his many supporters who are already here.
