A London-based Muslim cleric accused of supporting Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) was found guilty Monday of urging his followers to kill "enemies of Islam" in a holy war against non-believers.

Jamaican-born Sheikh Abdullah el-Faisal, 39, was convicted of three rare charges of incitement to murder. He was also found guilty of three counts of stirring up racial hatred through the use of threatening and abusive words in person and through video or audio recordings.


Faisal, who was arrested by British anti-terrorist police last year, will be sentenced next week. The charges are punishable by life imprisonment.


During the trial, the court was told Faisal urged his followers to use chemical and nuclear weapons in an Islamic holy war.


"He encouraged his audiences to wage war against non-believers, in particular Hindus, Jews and any citizen of the United States of America,"


It's about time. I'm more worried about tolerating Muslim extremists than any growing intolerance in the West. I think by taking a tough stand against Muslim extremists, at the very least, they won't be operating in our countries.
