“Who is the BBC’s poster boy, the expert on Islamic radicalisation?
Frank Gardiner, BBC, uses Hanif Qadir to tell us how angry Muslim youth are about our foreign policy.
he happily confirms that Jihad is fundamental to his beliefs…as long as innocents are not killed….and ,er, none in Britain anyway.
He also tells us that the most vulnerable to radicalisation are those with ‘sympathy, compassion and pity along with anger against Western oppression.’….and as his brother tells us ‘they are right to be angry’ as Muslims are oppressed around the world by the West….so really they are quite good people, maybe the best, just mislead in how they go about standing up for their views.
Harry’s Place tells us more about who he associates with and why these anti-radicalisation groups (mostly run by so called ex-radicals) are not all they seem….anything involving Tariq Ramadan has to be suspect.
Note also that the BBC, and Eliza Manningham-Buller, still insist the Muslim Brotherhood are entirely benign and pro democracy….aren’t they?
‘They (MB) stand for the fusing of church and state, and the dominance of non-democratic religious law over man made law, the rejection of fundamental human rights standards, the entrenching of gender and religious inequality, the lack of freedom to change or abandon religious beliefs, except in one direction, and the death penalty for those who do. They are not a non-violent organisation. In Egypt, they do not engage in terrorism, but that is a tactical decision only. However, Hamas – which is the Muslim Brotherhood – directs terrorist attacks against civilians, without shame: a policy which is sanctioned religiously by the Muslim Brotherhood’s religious leader, Yusuf Al Qaradawi.’
‘Campus Salam held its first event:
‘What is the place for Islamic Political thinking in the UK today?’
What is the place of Islamic political thinking? You decide! A free event where students interrogate the experts, who are Tariq Ramadan , Anas Altikriti, Barbara Zoller, Sheikh Bahmanpour, Osama Saeed & Hanif Qadir.
The Centre for Social Cohesion has it spot on:
” Campus salam’s inaugural event was a debate featuring Tariq Ramadan (arguably Europe’s most prominent defender of the Muslims Brotherhood), Anas Altikriti (the former spokesman for the Muslim Association of Britain), Barbara Zollner (an academic who believes the Muslim Brotherhood are now moderate), Osama Saeed (the Muslim Association of Britain’s Scottish spokesman). The two other panelists included Sheikh Bahmanpour, who teaches at the Hawza Ilmiyya, a Shia school in East London which reportedly teaches that unbelievers are “filth” and Hanif Qadir, a youth worker who tried to join the Taliban in 2002.
