Hizb ut Tahrir spokesman jailed for incitement to murder

Fadi Abdullatif, spokesman for the racist party, Hizb ut Tahrir, has been jailed in Denmark for three months:

He was convicted last year for giving out leaflets which urged Muslims to fight in Iraq and told them: “exterminate your rulers if they stand in your way”.

A judge earlier decided based on a Danish translation of the text that the call to “exterminate rulers” if they opposed people leaving Denmark to fight in Iraq amounted to a threat against the Scandinavian country’s government.

Abdullatif was also convicted for publishing a text on the party’s website urging people to kill Jews.

I have to say, the judge showed remarkable restraint. Lucky Abdullatif.

This is the second conviction for Abdullatif. In 2002, he was convicted for distributing of a racist leaflet which was hosted on a website which was run by Hizb-ut-Tahrir in the United Kingdom.
