London, Oct 3 (ANI): Radical hate preacher Anjem Choudary has issued a warning just days after Ed Miliband became the first Jewish politician to lead the Labour Party.
Speaking exclusively to The Daily Star Sunday, he said "Red Ed" faced being targeted over his views on Israel.
He said: "I think he set out his stall when he said the Government should continue their war in Afghanistan and that he supported the state of Israel. It's the same old thing - the occupation of Muslim land. What's the difference?
"The whole issue of Israel is something which is in the minds of the Jews, so people will see him as just another person that supports the occupation of Muslim lands. That's maybe a factor in people's minds," Choudary said
Choudary also hit out at the Milibands' Jewish origins.
"The fact that he supports the troops in Afghanistan, people will see him as just another warmonger. And the fact he is Jewish I don't think is going to help him at all. No," The Daily Star quoted him, as saying.
Miliband, 40, spoke last week of how he and his brother David's careers in politics had been inspired by his parents' flight from the Nazis. (ANI)
