Muslim Cleric supports targeting children

The Telegraph has this story about a Muslim cleric who says that targeting children is acceptable. Here's his quote;

"If an Iraqi Muslim carried out an attack like that in Britain, it would be justified because Britain has carried out acts of terrorism in Iraq.

"As long as the Iraqi did not deliberately kill women and children, and they were killed in the crossfire, that would be okay."

He gave this interview to promote an upcoming celebration of the 9/11 attacks on the US. What a charmer! A member of the British Parliament had this to say about it, "It is an insult to most moderate Muslims, who are sick of people like this claiming to represent them." The thing is, why aren't the moderate Muslims saying it? Has anyone heard anything from them? They must exist right?

For some, the death penalty just seems too nice...
