Radical British Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary is at it again.
This time, he’s calling the surviving members of Charlie Hebdo staff’s cover for Wednesday’s issue an “act of war.”
The cover depicts the prophet Muhammad holding a “Je Suis Charlie” (“I am Charlie”) sign with the caption above reading “All is forgiven” in French.
Choudary, who is a frequent sparring partner of Fox News’ Sean Hannity, threatened that “there will be repercussions” for the cover.
He also said that if a case were tried under Sharia law, the punishment for anyone drawing the prophet would be death.
He even sent out a tweet promoting his comments being published in England’s “Daily Telegraph” newspaper.

Several other tweeters took him to task for it.
@anjemchoudary are you going to kill more innocent people over it? Or shoot a Muslim police officer and try back track on it

@anjemchoudary you just crashed into the limits of Western tolerance. Grown-ups here are expected to be able to take criticism.

@anjemchoudary You say there will be repercussions. Presumably by people scared to show their faces, wearing black hoods? Cowards
