Returns home a hero and an enemy.
SNEERING Muslim fanatics labelled Prince Harry a target for assassins last night after his heroics against the Taliban.
Harry’s perilous Army mission in Afghanistan was dismissed by British extremists as a mere publicity stunt.
Tory MPs last night condemned the outpourings by three influential Islamic radicals as “highly irresponsible”. Andrew Rosindell, who represents Romford in Essex, said: “This is an appalling thing for them to say.”
Anjem Choudary, former leader of British-based radicals Al Muhajiroun, said: “He will be seen as part of the enemy and so he is a target. This is an illegal war and it should be seen in that light, and for Harry to participate has absolutely no justification. Those who want to carry out operations over here will target Harry. He is a natural target for someone that way inclined.”
Choudary, right-hand man to hate preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed, added: “There have been many wiser and braver men who have decided not to participate and who have objected.
“They should be the ones declared as heroes. For the Royal Family to say they are custodians of the faith and then send one of their own just shows that they are toeing the Government’s line in foreign policy.
”Bakri himself said: “He is just doing it for publicity – for him he has been on a picnic. I do not believe he is there to engage or fight.“He is there for publicity for himself and for the Royal Family. I do not think he is a threat to Al Qaeda or the Taliban.”
Bakri, 49, who now lives in Lebanon after being barred from Britain, accused the Government of being “irresponsible”.He said: “They say they have an integrated society and then they are involving themselves in a war which is unjust.
“Harry should now come out and tell everyone what he saw and what he has experienced. “He should tell the Muslim community what he thinks and if he would go out again.
He should condemn the persecution taking place and call for troops to withdraw.”
