The conference was organised by Interpal, the chief Hamas supporter among British Islamist charities.
Well, Interpal have now issued this notice:
It is with great regret that we inform you that due to unforeseen circumstances and external pressure Management and trustee’s have discussed the critical air surrounding our event and have decided to cancel this Sundays Dhul Hajj event.
We apologise for the short notice, this victimisation towards Islamic Speakers not only harms our work but disappoints the many people looking forward to gaining religious knowledge in this Holy period.
Our Due Dilligence are always done to insure the suitability of our speakers however unfortunately sometimes outside pressure prevails.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.
Note in particular “Our Due Dilligence are always done to insure the suitability of our speakers however unfortunately sometimes outside pressure prevails.” In other words, Interpal knows the speakers very well and thinks they are just fine.
Ibrahim Dar of Interpal Bradford runs a group called “Youth Talk Dawah”. Here “Youth Talk” hails al-Qaeda preacher and recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki. Dar is a big fan of Awlaki. (Click to enlarge.)
