FNC's Hannity Confronts Radical Cleric Over Plans for Islamic Uprising

Media

“You’re one sick, miserable, evil S.O.B but thank you for coming on anyway.”

On Wednesday, Fox News' Sean Hannity hosted controversial Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary to discuss the continuing turbulence in Egypt and who will fill the power vacuum when President Hosni Mubarak steps down.  Choudary supports implementing sharia law in the UK and has praised the 9/11 terrorists as "magnificent martyrs." He has been an active figure in Islam4UK, a group banned under UK anti-terror proscription laws last year.

Over the course of their discussion, Choudary suggests the situation in Egypt offers a real opportunity for an Islamic uprising and a chance for the Muslim Brotherhood -- a group banned under Mubarak -- to reinsert itself into the country's politics.  According to Choudary, the people of Egypt do not oppose sharia law and instead would rather be free of Western customs:

When Hannity presses the cleric on his views of sharia law and, specifically, stoning individuals for offenses such as adultery, Choudary unapologetically insists that stoning men and women is acceptable after implementing shariah law, the "education system of Islam" and the "social and economic justice."
