Radical London Imam Anjem Choudary Admits Islam is not a Religion of Peace, ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF SUBMISSION
IT TURNS OUT THAT ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION OF PEACE AFTER ALL …
Love him or hate him, at least London Imam Anjem Choudary speaks the truth. Last Wednesday during an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, Hannity and Choudary discussed Islam and its views toward the world, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, woman, gays and other social issues. However, the money line of the contentious interview was when London Imam Anjem Choudary stated that Islam is not a Religion of Peace … “Islam does not mean peace, Sean, it means submission, submission to the commands of God.”
“You’re saying you do not believe in freedom of speech, you don’t believe in freedom of expression, you believe in Islamic fascism, that people must abide by your laws,” Hannity said.
“Actually, as a Muslim, we believe that sovereignty and supremacy belongs to God and therefore we believe in submitting to the commands of God,” Choudary said.
Hannity asked him, “So you’re saying anything offensive about the prophet Muhammad should be illegal and it should be worldwide?”
Choudary told Hannity that in Islam, that carries capital punishment.
Transcript of last Wednesday’s broadcast of Hannity from RCP:
HANNITY: So what you’re basically saying is freedom of expression does not extend to insulting the prophets of Allah, whatever your views on what happened in Paris. So you’re saying you do not believe in freedom of speech. You don’t believe in freedom of religion. You don’t believe in freedom of expression. You believe in Islamic fascism, that people must abide by your laws!
ANJEM CHOUDARY, LONDON IMAM: Actually, as a Muslim, we believe sovereignty and supremacy belongs to God. And therefore, we believe in submitting to the commands of God–
HANNITY: Well, you’re demanding–
HANNITY: But you’re not– no, you’re demanding everybody else submit to what you believe–
CHOUDARY: No. No, what we say–
HANNITY: –and it should be–
HANNITY: Well, that’s what you said. You said freedom of expression–
Sean Hannity Blasts President Barack Obama in Blistering Monologue … ‘It’s Time for a Wake-Up Call’ … “It Is Time for You to Get Engaged.”
BARACK OBAMA, ITS TIME TO LEAD, NOT DIVIDE …
Last night Sean Hannity blasted Barack Obama in a blistering monologue begging, asking and demanding that this president ‘WAKE UP” and get engaged in the turmoil in both domestic and foreign policy. Much of which Obama has no one to blame but himself. Although he will try and pass the buck. It is becoming evident that Obama is the “Bystander” in Chief and refuses to step up to the plate and lead. But instead Obama attends fundraisers, plays golf and goes on vacation to Martha’s Vineyard.
Hannity stated that our world is in an alarming state of emergency, between Israel’s ground war into Gaza to protect itself from Hamas, Malaysia flight ML17 blown out of the sky in an unspeakable act killing innocent men, women and children, ISIS on the rise, Al-Qaeda on the move, the Middle East on fire, Russia and Putin flexing its muscles, Obama administration scandals like IRS-gate and Benghazi-gate, and a US domestic policy of out of control national debt and a discouraged work force. Let us not forget the crisis we have on our Southern border caused by Obama’s lack of protecting or borders. Then there is that Obamacare thing.
Hannity said, “It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities. So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.” Hannity went on to say, “Mr. President for you to stand up. It is time for you to lead. It’s time to skip for once your lavish million dollar Marha’s Vineyard vacation. It’s time for you to put down those golf clubs. I thing 180 rounds of gold is quite enough. It is time for you to lead by example. [...] You need to spend more time in The Oval Office. You need to be in the Situation Room. You may be surprised to learn what has actually happened in the six years since you have become the leader of the free world.”
“It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities,” Hannity said. “So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.”
Hannity then skewered the president over his handling of domestic matters.
“Mr. President, why don’t you consider the events of these past 24 hours to be a very, very costly and deadly wake up call,” Hannity said. “And while all this was happening yesterday, you spent 40 seconds dealing with the killing of nearly 300 innocent people and for your secretary of state to tell Israel to restrain itself again and again. It’s time for a wakeup call.
Conservative talk radio host fires Cumulus.
As reported by Inside Music Media, after months of bitter negotiations, Sean Hannity, the #2 rated radio host, has rejected an offer to extend his contract. In essence, Hannity beat Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey to the punch and gave his a taste of his own medicine. Hannity fired Cumulus. It is also being reported that sources close to Hannity feels Cumulus treats its employees “like dirt…sub-human.” Rumors have it that Michael Savage will replace Hannity for afternoon drive time. Pardon the laughter, oh yea, that’s going to work. This is only half of the story. The liberals foaming at the mouth that Hannity, and Rush, were going to be silenced could not be more wrong.
Johnny Paycheck – ‘Take this Job and Shove It’
In the end as the Daily Caller reports, Hannity told Cumulus to ‘Take this Job and Shove It’.
But as NewsBusters reports, that Michael Savage could replace Hannity. More importantly they are reporting that the LIBS have got the entire Hannity being fired from radio 100% wrong. Sean Hannity is not going to be silenced from the radio waves. BOT EVEN CLOSE. According to Del Colliano, Clear Channel is “100% behind Hannity and will replace 80% of the Cumulus stations as soon as the current deal is up.”
Sean Hannity, the popular conservative radio and TV talk show host, turns down a recent Cumulus offer to renew his contract to continue aitring [sic] his show on 40 of their stations.
And now Lew “Trickey” Dickey has apparently seized the low road again.
He allowed Michael “I hope you get AIDS and die, you pig” Savage to go on Cumulus stations and predict that he – the 71-year-old talker – will replace Hannity in afternoon drive. [...]
Sources close to the situation who wish to remain anonymous in my witness protection program say it’s the other way around.
I have known for weeks that the opposite is true.
More from NewsBusters on the Libs getting it wrong again. SM had stated earlier as negotiations were going on between Rush and Hannity with Cumulus that LIBS best be careful. don’t ask fro things they might just come true. Sorry LIBS, this is not the worst thing that could happen to Hannity … it was the best thing for the #2
Just how wrong were liberal media members on this?
According to Del Colliano, Clear Channel is “100% behind Hannity and will replace 80% of the Cumulus stations as soon as the current deal is up.”
This will allow Hannity to stay on 500-plus stations carried through Premiere.
For the record, sources close to Hannity told me Friday that Del Colliano’s gotten it 100 percent correct. Another prominent, independent source also confirmed this moments ago.
This also squares nicely with what Alan Colmes predicted back in July.
Much more interesting thoughts as to what is the driving force behind this breakup at The American Spectator.
FOX News Prime Time Shake Up … Megyn Kelly to Take Hannity’s 9 PM Slot … Roger Ailes Says ‘All of Our Stars Will be Back’
BIG SHAKE UP ON PRIME TIME FOX NEWS SCHEDULE … MEGYN KELLY MOVES TO 9 PM.
According to the Drudge Report, FOX News is set to make their first change in their prime time schedule in 10 years. Megyn Kelly has landed the 9 PM time slot, previously held by Sean Hannity. This does not come as too much of a surprise as before Megyn Kelly went on maternity leave, she stated when she returned she would be leaving her day time show and moving to prime time.Well it appears she has landed the coveted 9 PM slot.
What a problem to have for FOX, some much talent and not enough time slots for them. This is also terrible news for the rest of the cable news networks like CNN and MSNBC, who already are a distant second and third. Tak about the rich getting richer. So why is FOX the #1 cable news network? They do not sit on their laurels and just bleed the current model until in fails. They are aware enough to realize that tweaks to their business and viewership model are needed to stay #1. The joke of the day had to be from CNN’s Peirs Morgan. That’s right, who? Megyn Kelly will now be taking Pier’s on in the 9 PM hour which prompted Morgan to Tweet, “Bring it on”. Really? Dude, Piers, get a reality check … “It’s already been broughten”.
But do not let your heart be troubled, according to Roger Ailes, Hannity is going nowhere and all the FOX News stars will be back. So is FOX prime time going to be from 7 to 11? Their line up will most likely be Greta Van Susteren 7-8, Bill O’Reilly 8-9, Megyn Kelly 9-10 and Sean Hannity 10-11.
The first question Cavuto asked was about the rumor, first reported on Drudge Report, that Megyn Kelly will me moving into the 9pmET time slot this Fall. “Generally, I don’t confirm or deny any rumors, and that is a rumor at the moment,” said Ailes, adding “all of our stars will be back.”
As for Hannity, who currently hosts the 9pm hour, Ailes said, “Hannity is a brand that many of our viewers love and want to see, and, as you know, is one of the nicest guys in the building.”
Hot Air has a bunch of possible mix and matches with time slots and who could be going where. It is incredible how with one slight change and so much talent on one cable news station just how much is affected as one domino knocks into the next.
