Abu Abdullah

Even last week's bombings did little to curtail the rhetoric of some of the most radical leaders, who criticized British Prime Minister Tony Blair for his statement on Thursday that the bombings appeared to be the work of Islamic terrorists.

''This shows me that he is an enemy of Islam,'' Abu Abdullah, a self-appointed preacher and the spokesman for the radical group Supporters of Shariah, said in an interview on Friday, adding, ''Sometimes when you see how people speak, it shows you who your enemies are.''

Abdullah declared that those British citizens who re-elected Blair ''have blood on their hands'' because British soldiers are killing Muslims. He also said that the British government, not Muslims, ''have their hands'' in the bombings, explaining, ''They want to go on with their fight against Islam.''
