    Abu Hamza, the Muslim preacher, was heard calling for the "blood and destruction" of non-believers at the Old Bailey yesterday and describing Britain as a country "like the inside of a toilet".

    The jury at his trial on nine counts of soliciting to murder, four counts of using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour and two further counts of possessing abusive recordings with a view to distribution and possession of a document useful to preparing terrorism heard the former imam of Finsbury Park, north London, speak for the first time in two videos made by his followers.


    Abu Hamza: Two videos
    In the recordings, each more than two hours long, Hamza was also heard accusing the Prime Minister of killing Muslim children.

    The first video, called the "Holy Way to Khilafa" (Muslim nationhood), showed Hamza seated at a table with a banner which read "Al-Jihad" during a meeting in Whitechapel, east London, in 1997 or 1998.

    He told the unseen audience that living in Britain was like the "inside of a toilet" and added: "We are all under the heavy boots of the kufr (unbeliever)."

    "This is why they talk of the Khilafa now," he added.

    "Some talk of it as the drug which they need to vent themselves, others they talk about it as the only solution."

    Quoting the prophet Mohammed he added: "The blood and destruction is the destruction upon you kaffirs."

    He said democracy was crumbling and laid out a two-stage plan to replace it with a Muslim nation.

    The first he said meant "bleed them from their sides, their heads, their economy, everything until they surrender."

    The preacher went on: "Like you imagine you have only one small knife and you have a big animal in the front of you, the size of the knife you can't slaughter him with this.

    "You have to stab him here and there until he bleeds to death, until he die, then you cut his meat the way you like it or leave it for the maggots."

    After that he claimed: "The people who called you terrorist before, they will call you khalifas (Muslim rulers) and the scholars who used to call you khawarij (rebels against Islam) yesterday, they will write poems about you."

    The second stage involved taking control of the whole world, he added.

    "Don't be a shield for the kufr because we will get you," he added. "Even if you are not a target and you are in the target area. If you fear them, you should fear Allah more. It's a bloody way."

    Hamza told his followers they would eventually see a Muslim ruler in the White House and added: "The whole earth, it will be for Muslims, this is a promise from Allah.

    "Go and fight, light and heavy, rich and poor, sick and healthy," he told his followers and identified targets as every court, interest-charging banks, video shops which sell "naked" videos and brothels.

    "You have to bleed the enemy, whether you work alone, you work with a group or you work with your own family, work has to be done.

    "Tease them, make them afraid, show their humiliation." Hamza added: "Anybody he sees a deficiency and an enemy of Islam, just go and kill him."

    Laughing when a woman asked him whether she could join the holy war, Hamza told her to tell her children, if they were aged 10 or 12, to "go with their father for training . . . make sure he shows them videos about Jihad ideas, bring them up for Jihad."

    In the second video, filmed in September 1999, Hamza described Britain as a kaffir (unbeliever) country which does not apply Shariah law and is therefore at war and accused Tony Blair of killing "many of our children".

    He added: "Most of them are pagans; preachers have become homosexuals; churches have become places of dancing, iniquity, business, black magic, you name it."

    The case continues.

    Hamza 'had Big Ben as terror target'
    By Duncan Gardham
    (Filed: 12/01/2006)

    Abu Hamza, the Muslim preacher, had a 10-volume terrorism manual at his home which was dedicated to Osama bin Laden and featured a list of targets including Big Ben, skyscrapers, airports and football stadiums, a court heard yesterday.

    The Encyclopaedia of Afghani Jihad was written in Arabic between 1989 and 1999 with the help of Mujahadeen fighters in Afghanistan.

    It featured sections on explosives, sabotage and assassination, the Old Bailey was told.

    The first volume talks of a holy war against English, French and Communist "imperialists" who protect Israel.

    It also refers to an "external pressure unit" which "belongs to the execution unit which operates abroad" and should be sent to a country "at least 10 years" before the Jihad starts.

    Among the high-profile targets suggested are the "Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower and Big Ben clock".

    Targets where there would be bigger loss of life are suggested as "skyscrapers, ports, airports, nuclear plants, football stadiums and large congregations at Christmas".

    David Perry, prosecuting, said it was a "manual, a blueprint for terrorism". "It includes all anyone ever needs to know if they want to make a home-made bomb or explosive."

    Hamza, 47, who was born in Egypt and has lived in Britain for several years as a British citizen, is accused of nine counts of soliciting to murder, four counts of using threatening, abusive or insulting behaviour and two counts of possessing abusive recordings with a view to distribution and possession of a document useful to preparing terrorism.

    When police raided his home in west London in May 2004 they found more than 2,700 audio tapes and 570 video tapes, some of them labelled "Jihad", meaning holy war, the court was told.

    Hamza was the preacher at Finsbury Park mosque before it closed in 2003. The terrorism encyclopedia was found on the top shelf in a ground- floor room of his house.

    The jury saw pictures of Hamza's home in Shepherd's Bush. It contained boxes piled with blank tapes and others labelled "master", suggesting they were being prepared for distribution.

    The tapes included sections on the evils of adultery, drink and e-number additives in food.

    In one speech, delivered to a meeting in Whitechapel, east London, in 1997 or 1998 Hamza said the role of women should be to encourage their husbands to train children as young as 10 so they could become mujahadeen (holy warriors).

    In a tape aimed at young people he said: "When you meet Allah you will be asked who was killed at your hands?"

    Britain and Western nations were "100 per cent anti-Islam", he said in another tape, calling on his followers to spread Islam "by the sword" and adding: "European leaders only respect those that are strong."

    He said: "Killing the kafir for any reason is OK, killing the kafir for no reason is OK," and he specifically singled out those that granted licences for "wine shops".

    Hamza added: "We like blood and are addicted to it. When they say they love Allah they must ask themselves how much fafir blood they have spilt for Allah."

    Describing non-believers as "germs and viruses" in another tape he added: "There is no drop of liquid loved by Allah more than blood of Serbs, Jews or any other enemy of Allah."

    In a speech about a terrorist attack in Egypt, which killed 58 people in November 1997, Hamza told his audience the tourist industry should be Islamised and added: "While children should not be killed directly, their killing is permissible if they are in the target area."

    Asked if suicide bombing was permissible he said: "People call it suicide to put people off. It is not called suicide, it is called martyrdom."

    The court heard Hamza was calling for a worldwide "caliphate" of Muslim Shariah law and for a Muslim ruler in the White House.

    Hamza claimed Jews were "blasphemous, traitors and dirty" and added that "Hitler was sent to torture and humiliate Jews", the court was told.

    Mr Perry said Islam was not the subject of the trial and added: "It is quite clear no religion condones the murder or killing of innocent men, women or children or the dissemination of hatred and bigotry."

    Hamza refused to answer questions when he was arrested but gave a statement claiming that Islam was on trial and he had never read the encyclopaedia, which had been given to him as a "gift". He denies all the charges.

    The trial continues.

    Yep, they are preaching this in the mosques. They are spouting it in press releases. They proclaim it to all that will listen, but Europe and the left here refuse to believe. Funny thing, cognitive dissonance.
