‘You’re an evil SOB’: Fireworks fly as Hannity tangles with radical Islamic cleric

While many in the Muslim world were busy distancing themselves from the terror attacks in Paris, one Imam was as brazen as ever.

Radical Imam Anjem Choudary released a series of tweets Wednesday that seemed to show support for the terrorists who murdered 12 people at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo headquarters in Paris.

He appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” later in the evening and didn’t backtrack at all.

“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,” Hannity asked Choudary. “You believe in Islamic fascism that people must abide by your laws.”

Choudary didn’t deny it.

“We live in a very unstable and insecure world today, which you can see very well now in Paris what the consequences of insulting the prophet are,” he said. “The sensibilities and the emotions of Muslims must be taken into consideration.”

Choudary said Christians and Jews should be allowed to live but only under Sharia law, which he believes should be the law of every nation.

“Why did I bring this man on?” Hannity said. “Because … you need to know how people view real Islam. To him that is Islam. It must he a worldwide caliphate and unless the world comes to terms with what we’re dealing with I don’t think we’ll ever solve the problem.”

He concluded the interview in stark terms.

“I still think you’re an evil SOB,” Hannity told Choudary. “But I really want people to hear you.”
