British Jihadi: I Won’t Return to UK Until Black Flag Flies over Buckingham Palace

Raziye Akkoc, Telegraph (London), July 4, 2014

A British man who claims he is fighting with jihadists in Syria has said he would not return to the UK until “the black flag of Islam” flies over Buckingham Palace and Downing Street.

The man, who called himself Abu Osama, said he had received military training, including how to build bombs and shoot weapons, during his time in Syria.

Speaking with a West Yorkshire accent in an interview with BBC Radio 5 Live, he described the 7/7 London bombers as “heroic lions”, claiming “there is nothing in Britain–it is just pure evil”.

Osama said he was fighting with the extremist Al-Nusra Front, linked to Al-Qaeda. However the BBC said his claims had not been “officially verified”.

The man told presenter Nicky Campbell: “I have no intention of coming back to Britain, because I have come to revive the Islamic Khilafah [the Arabic term for the creation of a caliphate].

“I don’t want to come back to what I have left behind.

“If and when I come back to Britain it will be when this Khilafah–this Islamic state–comes to conquer Britain and I come to raise the black flag of Islam over Downing Street, over Buckingham Palace, over Tower Bridge and over Big Ben.”

His comments come after more than 100 imams, from different parts of the faith, urged British Muslims not to go to Syria or Iraq, and to offer assistance from the UK.

In the letter, the imams wrote: “Ramadan, the month of mercy, teaches us the value of unity and perseverance and we urge the British Muslim communities to continue the generous and tireless efforts to support all of those affected by the crisis in Syria and unfolding events in Iraq, but to do so from the UK in a safe and responsible way.”

One of the signatories of the letter, Imam Qari Muhammad Asim, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme more than 100 imams across Britain would urge members of their congregation not to go to Syria in Friday prayers.

He condemned the comments made by Osama and said the man had been “completely hijacked”.

The imam at Makkah Mosque said: “Radicalisation doesn’t take place overnight–Islam has been hijacked. Social media and the internet plays a huge part in radicalisation and brainwashing.”

But he added a lot of work had to be done and it was not only the responsibility of the Muslim community and imams, but law enforcement as well.

The man speaking to the BBC said his family initially found it hard to accept his decision “because no mother wants to lose her son” but his family now “understands that this is a good cause I am in”.

He added: “”They are a bit scared but I tell them we will meet in the afterlife. This is just a temporary separation.

“They said, ‘We understand now what you are doing’, and my mother said, ‘I have sold you to Allah. I don’t want to see you again in this world’.”

  • OK, you stay out as long as you like.

    I wouldn’t mind his absence if I were British.

  • What’s that about the briar patch?

  • Truthseeker

    They openly state their intention to colonize Britain and wipe out its glorious heritage, and the establishment sits back and tries to find ways to downplay people’s fears. Don’t be doormats, Britain. Get these people out of your country.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      The likes of this Jihadi must be slain, and their blood used to water the tree of liberty.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Getting rid of the racial foreigners in Britain will require another English Civil War, with patriot vs. traitor taking the place of cavalier vs. roundhead. If Britannia wants to preserve her ancient race and heritage, she must be prepared to fight for it.

  • Ed

    I respect his honesty. Of course some British liberal will come along and say he was misunderstood.

    • JohnEngelman

      Or the British liberal will say that he needs to be understood, having been a victim of white racism.

    • benvad

      The liberal must be put in a reeducation camp or executed, no way around it. Got to round up academics and media personality and snuff them.

  • Pro_Whitey

    So will QEII get her head out of her backside, or will she allow the black flag to be flown over Buckingham Palace so this “citizen of the Commonwealth” will not feel left out? God save the Brits, the Queen has lost all right to be saved.

    • David Ashton

      No there are limits, even for “My Husband and I”.

      Of course, if the closet republicans get their triumph after the ethnic “minorities” become the ethnic majority, we shall have a new flag: four stripes, black, yellow, brown, and a white one with a red star, green crescent and blue chakra on it.

      • propagandaoftruth

        I have one with a bundle of switches and an axe head that could serve until all the major problems got solved, haw haw…

    • Katherine McChesney

      She claims to be the “Defender of the Faiths” plural, which includes Islam.

    • I can’t really see there being a monarchy in 50 years time. Look at London…..already a non-white majority or stuffed with metropolitan lefties not all that fussed about it either way.

      Well, to be truthful, I couldn’t really care either way myself. My concern is for the future of the European peoples more than the institutions and figureheads themselves.

      The latest addition to the royal family (the baby name escapes me at the minute) was born as an ethnic minority in the city of its birth. That should be an indication of how things may head.

      Perhaps they will keep them on as a tourist attraction, or quaint little legacy of some mystical older Britain, but there is no longer a guarantee that there will be place or tolerance for a ‘Royal Family’ in the future, particularly when the majority of the demographic in Britain will have no deep roots in Britain.

      It would not surprise me if the palace put up the flag and had a ramadan based evening meal ceremony to celebrate it.

      The whole country is around the bloody twist so much that anything is possible. I can’t take much more of it, I need to switch off.

      I bet our government could shoot thousands of us on the streets, bring in some law to have access to all our bank accounts, and hook up all our houses to CCTV recorders to be monitored……and the British people would just shrug their shoulders, do nothing, and say “well, if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear!” and “Well, they have all been shot for a reason, I don’t think it is right like, but if you are racist and against this country and the wonderful diversity, well, these things happen I suppose”……

  • TruthBeTold

    What I can’t stand is the interviewer.

    He’s trying to get this guy to see the errors of his ways, give up his hate, and become a happy British Muslim.

    There’s your problem.

    People like him we can all just get along.

    • TruthBeTold

      And to add to my own comments.

      This interviewer really ticks me off.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if the interviewer actually went to Buckingham Palace and hoisted the Black Flag just to make this Jihadist feel welcome.

      This guy is what’s wrong in Britain today. He seems to believe that if we’re nice, they’ll be nice.

      THEY have no intention of being nice and just getting along. This guy is telling the interviewer his plans to CONQUER England in the name of Islam and this interviewer tries to talk him out of it.

      Jihadist: We’re going to take over England.

      Interviewer: I really wish you’d reconsider.

  • propagandaoftruth

    “A British man who claims he is fighting with jihadists in Syria has said he would not return to the UK until “the black flag of Islam” flies over Buckingham Palace and Downing Street.”

    I think all “British” Muslims should go over there to fight and not return under the same circumstances. Every one. Go fight over there. All of you.

    You’ll never come back…

    • David Ashton

      A “British man” – you can imagine the irritation and anger this phrase evokes.

  • Conrad

    “The imam at Makkah Mosque said: “Radicalisation doesn’t take place overnight–Islam has been hijacked. Social media and the internet plays a huge part in radicalisation and brainwashing.”
    Oh… BS. Islam has always been this way. These backward people have always been the enemy of the entire world. It started when they rejected Christianity for that backward, negroid religion.

  • MekongDelta69

    Maybe “Abu Osama” can return in a coffin and be buried in the country which he considers “pure evil.” This way, he will be in eternal Hell forever (but I repeat myself).

    However, regular, normal White Brits hopefully wouldn’t allow him to be returned – no more than he should have been in England in the first place.

  • So CAL Snowman

    “A British man who claims he is fighting with jihadists in Syria has said
    he would not return to the UK until “the black flag of Islam” flies
    over Buckingham Palace and Downing Street.”

    Well judging by how things are going out here in the Western world, he won’t have to wait very long.

  • james AZ

    BULL DIARRHEA,,,,,,,,Allah did not accept your Islamic behavior in middle finger east!!!

  • ckmariner

    I only wish he took the rest of them with him; never to return!

  • curri

    Well, the Yorkshire accent shows he’s assimilated. 🙂 How many African-Americans speak with the same accent or dialect as the white population they live close to? Also this jihadi is
    likely a fan of Manchester United or whatever team it is they root for in West Yorkshire. So he’s fully assimilated by mainstream liberal-conservative-leftist standards.

    Go to “jayman’s” HBD race-realist blog and search for “assimilation is a myth” and “all human behavioral traits are heritable.”

  • dd121

    At least he’s candid about his intentions. It makes it easier to identify targets.

  • Alexandra1973

    Nice knowin’ ya.


  • bubo

    In the immortal words of Johnny Utah, “He’s not coming back.”

  • Lagerstrom

    You don’t come back now, y’ hear!

  • eduardusjacobus

    The pitiful part of all this is that there are Mohammedans in Britain in the first place, especially imams.

  • Dale McNamee

    Abu, it’s not been nice knowing you… May you rot in hell !

  • Visceral

    It’s amazing how far the pendulum has swung. The punishment for high treason in mid evil England was to be drawn and quartered:

    To be hanged, drawn and quartered was from 1351 a statutory penalty in England for men convicted of high treason, although the ritual was first recorded during the reigns of King Henry III (1216–1272) and his successor, Edward I (1272–1307). Convicts were fastened to a hurdle, or wooden panel, and drawn by horse to the place of execution, where they were hanged (almost to the point of death), emasculated, disembowelled, beheaded and quartered (chopped into four pieces). Their remains were often displayed in prominent places across the country, such as London Bridge.

  • Katherine McChesney

    Unbelievable. What an idiot.

    • Lagerstrom

      Well, he was a ‘rapper’.

  • I’m sure the British government will be happy to accommodate him and fly that black flag. After all, not having an Islamic khalifate in Britain might cause this poor man some discomfort – and that might violate his civil rights.

  • henry ong

    It is vital for United Kingdom expel British jihadist because Britain is not a Muslim country.
    It is a White Christian & they have been kind enough to let these Muslim migrants to come & settle in Britain.
    You should not only get them out of the country, you should stop Muslims from migrating to Great Britain as well.
    Muslims who are not happy should go to Muslim countries to stay. Do England a favour,
    just leave.
