Radical cleric calls Charlie Hebdo new cover an ‘act of war’; warns of ‘repercussions’

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.

Of course there was at least one person who supported him.

Nothing says religion of peace like threatening repercussions.
