British Muslim Cleric warned of terrorist attacks in London in 2004!
Muslim cleric says attack on UK inevitable
Article publié le Mardi 20 avril 2004.
The Big Ben, in London, is one of the possible places where the terrorists could strike.
Several Islamic militant groups are preparing attacks on London, making such a strike unavoidable, a radical Muslim cleric said in an interview.
“It’s inevitable. Because several attacks are being prepared by several groups,” Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad told Lisbon’s Publica magazine
from London where he is based.
One “very well organised” group in London calling itself al Qaeda Europe
“has a great appeal for young Muslims”, he said. “I know
that they are ready to launch a big operation.”
The firebrand cleric, who has outraged moderate Muslims and non-Muslims alike with his uncompromising views, gave no further details. Asked if a
British Muslim was allowed to carry out a “terrorist attempt” in a foreign country, Muhammad said : “That is another story.”
He added: “We don’t make a distinction between civilians and non-civilians, innocents and non-innocents. Only between Muslims and unbelievers.
And the life of an unbeliever has no value. It has no sanctity.”

Guess most of London's "unbelievers" didn't heed the warning.
