Unfortunate choice of words ...

Good job he added the 'metaphorically'.

Moazzam Begg, who was detained by the US at Guantanamo Bay without charge before being released, was among the others to attend the meeting.

He was critical of the apparent leaking of information to journalists ahead of the raids.

"I hope that when the truth manifests itself that, metaphorically, heads will roll with the people who put out these stories in the first place," he said.

Hi there folks. I'm a regular sort of easy-going Muslim guy, but lately I've got real worried about misunderstandings between our three great Abrahamic faiths - Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

We Muslims need to break down barriers and get to know you people better. And when's the best time to get to know one another? At the earliest opportunity - in childhood! We'd love to get acquainted with your kids.

That's the inspiration behind KhomeiniTots Babysitters. All our babysitters have been trained in childcare in the best madrassas in Afghanistan. They're eager to apply the lessons they learned under their Mullahs to establishing a fun relationship with your kids.

And, in the interests of interfaith harmony, we are offering our services free of charge! You can stay out as long as you like - we are more than happy to look after your child all night long - just ask satisfied customers Sayyid Sahib and his daughter.

There's no need to worry about any cultural differences. Though I'm a Muslim, I just love Christmas! It gives me the opportunity to dress up as Santa, sit children on my lap and then Ho! Ho! Ho!

That would be the same Mr Begg who holidayed in such sunny places as the Balkens - whilst a war was on - made numerous trips to other fun filled war zones and what he was picked up by the US/Pakistani security claimed "Its a stitch up gov."
