Prince Harry says he was happier in Afghanistan now that he is back home.
As Prince Harry returned home today, British Radical Islamists threatened the young prince after it was announced that he was fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan this week.
The Daily Express and LGF Quick Links reported:
Muslim fanatics labelled Prince Harry a target for assassins last night after his heroics against the Taliban.
Harry’s perilous Army mission in Afghanistan was dismissed by British extremists as a mere publicity stunt.
But they also claimed that by participating in an “illegal war”, the brave young Prince had made himself fair game for a terrorist attack.
Tory MPs last night condemned the outpourings by three influential Islamic radicals as “highly irresponsible”. Andrew Rosindell, who represents Romford in Essex, said: “This is an appalling thing for them to say.”
Yesterday’s outbursts came as Harry was on his way home amid fears for his safety after details of his exploits in Helmand province emerged.
Anjem Choudary, former leader of British-based radicals Al Muhajiroun, said: “He will be seen as part of the enemy and so he is a target. This is an illegal war and it should be seen in that light, and for Harry to participate has absolutely no justification. Those who want to carry out operations over here will target Harry. He is a natural target for someone that way inclined.”
Choudary, right-hand man to hate preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed, added: “There have been many wiser and braver men who have decided not to participate and who have objected.
Bakri himself said: “He is just doing it for publicity – for him he has been on a picnic. I do not believe he is there to engage or fight.
“He is there for publicity for himself and for the Royal Family. I do not think he is a threat to Al Qaeda or the Taliban.” Bakri, 49, who now lives in Lebanon after being barred from Britain, accused the Government of being “irresponsible”.
He said: “They say they have an integrated society and then they are involving themselves in a war which is unjust.
“Harry should now come out and tell everyone what he saw and what he has experienced.
“He should tell the Muslim community what he thinks and if he would go out again. He should condemn the persecution taking place and call for troops to withdraw.”
Earlier, Inayat Bunglawala, assistant secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said Harry would be a target if he stayed in Afghanistan.
“I am sure many Afghans opposed to the British presence will see him as a high-value target,” he said. Harry is expected to be back on British soil today. But he has been warned to stay away from his favourite London nightclubs for fear of presenting an easy target for the terrorists.
Prince Harry returned home to Great Britain this morning the BBC News reported.
Jules Crittenden reported on the best part of Harry’s time in Afghanistan and this:
…The whole world’s a war zone today, and when you do the math, the west’s military dead overseas have only recently outpaced the civilian dead at home, from New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia to Madrid, London and Bali. That’s before you get to al Qaeda’s lust for civilian blood on Muslim turf, from Algeria to Pakistan. A lot of people, civilian and military, have died in a lot of places in this global war. Again, having one of the world’s elite, a British royal, engaged on the front lines is of inestimable value…
