Islamist Hate Preacher Anjem Choudary Will Vote Against Brexit

Guy Bentley | Research Associate, Reason Foundation

Britain’s most notorious Islamist hate preacher Anjem Choudary is supporting United Kingdom’s membership in the European Union.

The U.K. will vote on whether or not to remain a member of the EU Thursday. In the final days of the campaign the “Leave” and “Remain” campaigns are neck and neck, with turnout expected to be the decisive factor in determining the outcome.

Speaking exclusively to Breitbart London, Choudary offered his reasons for why the U.K. was better off in the EU. “If you want my view on it, I think Britain will be worse off,” said Choudary.

“I think that [leaving the EU] is something that is probably not in our advantage from a Muslim perspective.” Choudary argued the U.K. would be at a security disadvantage in the event of Brexit.

“With all the security implications, you know, while the rest of the world is trying to unite together with common purpose, this is not the time from a security perspective to be isolating. And I think about what some of them are saying about Scotland having another referendum, and Britain will be even smaller.”

Choudary has referred to the 9/11 terrorists as “magnificent martyrs.” Choudary believes Sharia should be implemented throughout the U.K. and has spoken about the flag of Islam flying over 10 Downing Street — the residence of Britain’s prime minister.

The radical preacher was charged with inviting support from Islamic State in August, 2005. He was charged under section 12 of the U.K.’s Terrorism Act 2000.

“It is alleged that Anjem Choudary and Mohammed Rahman invited support for Isis [also known as IS] in individual lectures which were subsequently published online,” said Sue Hemming, of the Crown Prosecution Service.
