    Corbyn in 2015 – let British jihadis travel to Syria

    Jeremy Corbyn’s antisemitic record has been under scrutiny for several weeks now, and rightly so. But let’s not forget other issues which are important, starting with our own national security. He should never be entrusted with the security of the United Kingdom. It would be seriously endangered. Look back to early 2015. Islamic State was on the march. No wonder – its strength and confidence had been boosted by a big influx of foreign fighters from Europe. They included Britain’s very own “Jihadi John”, who began his beheading spree in 2014. Those fighters were a top priority for Western intelligence services, in large part because there were fears they could…

    Corbynista Andrew Murray and Hezbollah

    It is easy to see why Andrew Murray has been welcomed to Jeremy Corbyn’s inner circle. He is a fanatical Israel hater. Consider a scene from London in July 2006, when Murray, Corbyn, far left agitators and Islamists marched to protest against Israel’s bid to defend itself against Hezbollah. Excited, Murray reads a message from Hezbollah to a cheering crowd. It is addressed to “our friends from around the world” from the “freedom fighters of Hezbollah”. Unity! Listen for yourself. Explicit support for Hezbollah was right out in the open at this demonstration. The poor old Socialist Party was somewhat disgruntled: However, left-wing leading members of the Stop the War…

    Abdel Bari Atwan and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign

    The self-styled Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) is actually a hate campaign. In particular, proponents of the most extreme violence are very welcome at its events. Come speak to us! The latest is the journalist Abdel Bari Atwan. He will speak at a PSC event in Brighton on 14 September. Note how the PSC advertise the meeting: He has also said ’Palestinians tried the “peace process”…now we should go back to square one, which means resistance’. Dancing for War This is how bad it gets. In a discussion of the Iranian nuclear programme, Mr Atwan turns to Israel: If the Iranian missiles strike Israel, by Allah, I will go to Trafalgar…

    Global Center for Combatting Extremist Ideology

    Never mind the quasi-bow, the sword dance or the remarkably unremarkable speech to Muslim leaders. This has got to be the most fascinating part of President Trump’s Saudi visit so far: At Global Center for Combatting Extremist Ideology. In a few minutes @POTUS and Saudi King to touch a globe to switch it on. pic.twitter.com/8oT21fsYt1 — Steve Herman (@W7VOA) May 21, 2017 Since daily life in Saudi Arabia is currently governed by an extremist ideology which its rulers seek to spread throughout the Muslim world, I’m not sure how seriously to take this whole thing. But if it doesn’t work out, they can always rent it out as a set…

    Haddad Preaching Jihad at Queen Mary University

    We know that Mohamed Amoudi, one of the suspects arrested in the latest round of London terror arrests, was a student at Queen Mary University. We also know that he was photographed listening to the hate preacher Haitham al-Haddad at an event at the university. Queen Mary has long been a host for one of the worst university extremist scenes in the country. Here’s the Queen Mary problem summed up in one minute. At another event, organised by the university’s Islamic Society in 2014, Haddad tells students that Allah “commands” jihad and wants martyrs. This way Islam will take the whole universe. The disparaging term “kafireen” is thrown in for…

    Will Jeremy Corbyn condemn the shooting of Khalid Masood?

    Will Jeremy Corbyn have the courage of his stated convictions and condemn the killing of Khalid Masood by armed police yesterday? Corbyn has stated on record that he was “not happy” with police or security services operating a “shoot to kill” policy in the event of a terror attack. In November 2015, Jeremy Corbyn was asked by the BBC‘s political editor Laura Kuenssberg whether he would be happy to order police or the military to shoot to kill if there an attack on Britain’s streets similar to the ones in France. Corbyn answered: “I’m not happy with the shoot-to-kill policy in general – I think that is quite dangerous and…

    Azad Ali of MEND – No time of day for the good and the brave

    What do you call a Muslim working against extremists to keep people safe? A “snake”. Or “vermin”. This is the message Azad Ali of the Islamist agitation group MEND is spreading. Four days ago he warned his Facebook followers to “be wary” of Mubin Shaikh, adding “don’t even give him the time of day”. This was Ali’s introduction to a post (click to enlarge) from a fellow Cage groupie which denigrated Shaikh as a “snake” and “spineless vermin”. You see, Shaikh did something impermissible. He bravely infiltrated a Canadian terrorist cell known as the Toronto 18 and helped to bring its members to justice on behalf of his country’s intelligence…

    Flying Blind in Belgium

    If you hijack an airliner, you can’t expect much sympathy, to say the least. Especially if you stab one of the passengers to death. If you use the hijacking to secure the release of terrorists who go on to commit further crimes, you are the worst of the worst. Or the very best in extremist eyes. Look at this example in The Army of Madinah in Kashmir, a recruitment screed for jihad in that troubled land. The book was published in 1999 by Maktabah, a jihadi propaganda outlet in Birmingham run in those years by none other than Moazzam Begg. This “Final Update” appears on page 150: December 1999 witnessed…

    Shakeel Begg Denigrating the Police

    In today’s lunacy news, the BBC says it understands that local police officers in Lewisham will continue working with Shakeel Begg, the disgraced “Jekyll and Hyde” imam, as a member of their “advisory group”. The Sunday Politics segment begins at 29:40 here. Now just one paragraph from Friday’s libel case judgment against Mr Begg should suffice to terminate that relationship. Here it is: 333. In my view, the Claimant’s BELMARSH PRISON SPEECH (2012) was particularly sinister. What the Claimant was, in truth, seeking to do was to signal sub silentio, his unalloyed admiration and praise forthe Belmarsh Muslim prisoners for what they had done, i.e. for being virtuous and brave…
