Choudary: "Pope should sentence to death for insulting Islam or embrace Islam"

He went on to say that Pope Benedict deserved to die for comments he believed are an insult to Islam. But, he added, "that needs to be assessed by a judge in the Sharia, or Islamic state (IS, ISIS)." If the Pope were to embrace Islam, he added, all would be forgiven. In 2006, Benedict made a statement that angered many Muslims and prompted an apology from the Vatican.

“The emperor, after having expressed himself so forcefully, goes on to explain in detail the reasons why spreading the faith through violence is something unreasonable. Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul,” he said.

“God…is not pleased by blood - and not acting reasonably is contrary to God’s nature. Faith is born of the soul, not the body. Whoever would lead someone to faith needs the ability to speak well and to reason properly, without violence and threats... To convince a reasonable soul, one does not need a strong arm, or weapons of any kind, or any other means of threatening a person with death,” he added, quoting the long-dead Christian Emperor Paleologus. At the time, CNN reported that "thousands of Palestinians marched in Gaza, demanding an apology."

Choudary continued, telling Trento that "Islam is the future," inviting him to become a Muslim. "You save yourself and your children from hellfire," he added.

5. Reza Aslan once suggested that Choudary and Rev. Franklin Graham. . .

. . .should chill out together over a cup of coffee

AMANPOUR: Do you, Reverend Graham, think that this Islamic radical (Anjem Choudary) who we just heard from is agreeing with you?

GRAHAM: Not agreeing with me. But his position -- what I was talking about Sharia law, what scares me. And he is speaking that Sharia law means to govern the entire world, and that is the -- that is the goal of the Islamists.

AMANPOUR: I just want to go to Reza Aslan, who's busy shaking his head from Amsterdam.

REZA ASLAN: No, I was just enjoying the conversation. And I think that Anjem and Franklin Graham ought to go grab a cup of coffee --

(LAUGHTER)

ASLAN: Because they see the world in exactly the same way.
