Muslim Brotherhood Leader Given Refuge in London

Would Churchill have given Himmler or Bormann refuge?

The leader of a racist genocidal group systematically slaughtering Christians, apostates and non-Muslims is welcome in London, but Robert Spencer and I are banned. I was not exaggerating when I said that the UK was not allowing us into the country solely because of our true and
accurate statements about Islam; the British government was behaving like
a de facto Islamic state.

Voices against ethnic cleansing, genocide, oppression, apartheid, misogyny, supremacism and jihad are "not conducive to the public good," but genocide and Islamic supremacism are. We must fight back. We have less than a week to raise the needed funds and we aren't there yet — help us in this expensive legal fight. Go here now.

British ban letter

"Muslim Brotherhood leader Gomaa Amin is in hiding in London" The Telegraph, August 25, 2013 (thanks to The Religion of Peace.com)

Gomaa Amin is understood to have been made head of the Islamist organisation
last week following the arrest of his predecessor in Cairo by Egypt’s
military rulers.

Mr Amin, 79, had flown to London about two months ago for medical treatment
and as a result escaped detention when the army seized power in a bloody
coup.

He is now residing at an undisclosed address from which he is trying to
orchestrate the Muslim Brotherhood’s response to the coup.

The presence of Mr Amin in London is a potential headache for British
authorities who may be obliged to provide protection for such a senior and
controversial figure.

The Muslim Brotherhood supports a caliphate, a unified Islamic state under
Sharia law, and has been accused of fuelling religious tensions in the
Middle East, particularly with the Christian minority.

Attacks on Christians in Syria and Egypt are highlighted in a
new interview with Lord Sacks, the outgoing Chief Rabbi, who spoke of his
grave concern for the religious minority.

“I think this is a human tragedy that is going almost unremarked,” Lord Sacks
says in an interview with the Telegraph.

“I don’t know what the name for this is, it is the religious equivalent of
ethnic cleansing. We are seeing Christians in Syria in great danger, we are
seeing the burning of Coptic churches in Egypt.

“There is a large Coptic population in Egypt and for some years now it has
been living in fear. I think sometimes Jews feel very puzzled that
Christians do not protest this more vociferously.”

Lord Sacks’s comments – while not directly aimed at the Muslim Brotherhood
which describes itself as a non-violent organisation – will turn the
spotlight on the Brotherhood’s Egyptian leaders, who appear to be making the
UK their base in exile.

There will may be concern that Mr Amin’s residency in London will attract
militant Islamists. In the 1980s and 1990s, Britain largely operated an
'open-door’ policy allowing extremists to live in exile in London to escape
persecution from authoritarian regimes in the Arab world.

So-called 'preachers of hate’ including Abu Qatada, Abu Hamza and Omar Bakri
Mohammed used London as a base to radicalise young Muslims, who went on to
commit or attempt terrorist atrocities both here and abroad.

Supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood say it is wrong to liken the group to
other Islamists which support al-Qaeda and other terrorist organisations.

The Muslim Brotherhood, through its political wing the Freedom and Justice
Party, has instructed lawyers in London to investigate whether Abdulfattah
al-Sisi, the Egyptian general at the head of the army, who deposed Mohammed
Morsi, the country’s democratically-elected president, has committed crimes
against humanity.

The team of lawyers includes Lord Macdonald of River Glaven, the former
director of public prosecutions, and Michael Mansfield QC, who brought the
private prosecution against the killers of Stephen Lawrence.

Legal actions may be brought at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the
Hague or else through a private prosecution in London.

If successful, Egypt’s new military rulers may face having their assets frozen
in the West and even possibly arrest should they try to visit the European
Union or other countries signed up to the ICC.

Mr Amin is understood to be heavily involved in bringing the case although
lawyers refuse to identify individuals over fears for their safety.

Tayab Ali, a partner at human rights law firm ITN Solicitors who is head of
the legal team, said: “It is really dangerous for Muslim Brotherhood members
in exile in London.

"Nobody anticipated how extreme General Sisi’s interim government has
been. It appears to be trying to exterminate the Muslim Brotherhood and wipe
it out. Nobody will argue that the lives of the senior leadership are in
danger and that includes those in London.”

There has been confusion over who is running the Muslim Brotherhood since the
security crackdown. Mohammed
Badie
, 70, its previous spiritual leader, was arrested last Tuesday
morning in Cairo.

His position appears to have been taken by Mr Amin, a deputy leader almost a
decade older. Mr Badie defeated him in elections to the senior position in
2010.

The Muslim Brotherhood has refused to confirm the identity of its new
spiritual leader but Mshariq.com, an Arabic news website, reported that an
emergency meeting had taken place following Mr Badie’s arrest and Mr Amin
given the role. It is not clear if he is an interim leader.

Mona al-Qazzaz, the Muslim Brotherhood’s spokeswoman in the UK, described Mr
Amin as a senior leader who had arrived in London earlier in the summer.

She said: “He is one of the senior leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and he is
here in London. He was here for medical checks two months ago.”

Mr Amin, a father of three, has been an official member of the Muslim
Brotherhood since 1951 and for many years has been pursued by the Egyptian
authorities.

He was jailed for six years between 1965 and 1971 for opposing the government
of Gamal Abdel Nasser and was later put on a wanted list following the
assassination of Anwar Sadat in 1981 – part of a mass round up of Muslim
Brotherhood leaders – prompting him to live in exile in Saudi Arabia for
four years

He was a vocal supporter of the Arab Spring and actively voiced calls for
Sunni Muslims, who predominantly support the Muslim Brotherhood, and Shiites
to unite against “a single enemy who [is] American Zionist”.

The scale of support for the Muslim Brotherhood in the UK is unclear but it is
estimated that between 500 and 1,000 Egyptians living in London voted for
the party through ballot at the Egyptian embassy in London. The majority of
the 6,000 Egyptian citizens in London voted for alternative parties in the
elections last year.

    What a sad state of affairs. Pam Geller and Robert Spencer are bringing truth about the violent and destructive religion of Islam. They are not commanding the burning of churches or mosques.
    They are asking us to wake up to the FACT, Islam is not the religion of Peace. It is the religion of conquering the world, denying rights to women, oppressing and suppressing women, terrorizing those who leave their cult, controlling the masses and utterly destroying countries and human beings who do not bow down to their insane religion.
    I respect Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, but being an atheist I see all religions as the world problem.

  • Mac-101

    Maybe crazy conspiracy people are right. Could the Muslim Brotherhood be started and work with MI-6? Is Al Qaida really a CIA directed organization?
    Do we support the “Freedom Fighters”/Al Qaida/Islamic Terrorist in Syria but kill them in Pakistan and Afghanistan?
    Does anything make ANY sense anymore?

  • Dan

    6,000 Egyptian Citizens? Christ! That’s far too many if they are Muslim and not Coptic.

    This is enough to drive a teetotaller to drink…not sure how much more I can take really. Blood vessels are threatening to pop.

    I am very sorry to say that I believe Britain is now gone. They went too far and now have too many of the Islamic persuasion. From the government’s perspective, they must keep their Muslim masses from rioting and other forms of civil disobedience. They do this through appeasement and they also fear the now large Islamic community/colonizers who are quite capable of violence, as we have seen with the Woolwich murder.
    I sincerely hope PG and Spencer will be allowed in but I fear it would just upset too many Muslims for the now Islamified government to risk.

    As the saying goes Lynn, ” If you think all religions are the same, you haven’t been paying attention “. As a Brit, this monster needs booting out.

  • Charles Martel

    How they deserve what they are getting! I felt sorry before for the Brits. Not any more. Are they sheep …? Oh wait! Who am I to talk? Look at what’s happening over here! We are way down the drain just like the Brits. We may be a decade behind, but we sure are moving faster than they did, or at least more openly.

  • Lynn

    I did not state all religions were the same. I have been paying attention, I am an American woman, who has been utterly terrorized by a Muslim man. I contacted Robert Spencer and he suggested I change my name, move and hide, because of the Muslim terrorist in my life.
    I said no, I will not hide, move or change my name, because I am going to stand up to the Muslim terrorist and his gang. They can stone me to death in the United States of America, for speaking out and condemning their violent actions and utter terrorism.
    Any Muslim who thinks I am going to back down, is wrong. I am one American woman, who will die for her convictions and won’t back down. I personally have been effected, by Islam.

  • Dan

    The US made the big mistake of electing a convert to Black Liberation Theology. Which is in effect a form of Crypto-Muslim religion. The US is much further gone. I understand that the white will be a minority in the US long before the projections for the same in the UK are indicated.

    5 years top!
    The Globalist are doin it on purpose.
    It’s 1984 on da Animal Farm in the Brave New World at a toastie 451*F!

  • Mac-101

    Hope ya got a restrainin order. Also I’d git a concealed carry and move to a state/city that allows for it if possible.
    It’s better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6!

    The scale of support for the Muslim Brotherhood in the UK is unclear
    Really? From where I am sitting, it is dangerously crystal clear.
    Mr Amin, a father of three, has been an official member of the Muslim Brotherhood since 1951 and for many years has been pursued by the Egyptian authorities.
    He was jailed for six years between 1965 and 1971 for opposing the government of Gamal Abdel Nasser and was later put on a wanted list following the assassination of Anwar Sadat in 1981 – part of a mass round up of Muslim Brotherhood leaders – prompting him to live in exile in Saudi Arabia for four years.
    He was a vocal supporter of the Arab Spring and actively voiced calls for Sunni Muslims, who predominantly support the Muslim Brotherhood, and Shiites to unite against “a single enemy who [is] American Zionist”

    The UK is giving sanctuary to this terrorist!
    UK, a hotbed for terrorists and sleepers, right under the very noses of the UK government and the police – can it really get any worse than this? Yet Theresa May bans Robert and Pamela from the UK. I feel like I have at some point I been somehow transported to a parallel universe. Can’t quite believe all this is happening to my beloved country.

  • fern

    I see the error in my last sentence, you get the gist tho ;) Braindrain.

  • fern

    MBH are know supporters of terrorism. UK citizens should be notified of all the known MBH in the UK. I note the spokeswoman for MBH is Mona Al Qazzaz and she studies at Cambridge (nice little hotbed of islamists in Cambrdige). Why are we harbouring these people and not warning the public? Kick them out of the UK and send them back where they came from – taking their wars and terrorism with them.

  • fern

    I am really at the end of my tether.

  • fern

    Mona al-Qazzaz, MBH’s spokeswoman in the UK said:
    […]…….. Egypt’s military, judiciary and media have become a mafia
    She’s having a larf!! …and what exactly is the MBH? Does this nut really think she can pull the wool over everyones eyes?
    May I suggest UK citizens get writing complaints to their local MP and that moron T. May. The left wouldn’t think twice about lobbying their local MP’s and government – so get cracking folks.

  • fern

    Tommy R and Kev should be highlighting this issue too – wake people up fgs.

  • Nat’s daughter

    Fern, I’m with ya! Always appreciate your posts and as always, thanks to Pamela for speaking the truth. Hang in there girls!

  • Judi

    Not only is the UK giving sanctuary to this terrorist, but they are probably treating his so-called health problem free on the NHS. It’s like a scene from a Monty Python episode, but unfortunately it isn’t funny!!

    Mac
    You have no idea the hell I have been living in. This man is very wealthy, has other people do his dirty work, bullying, harassing, terrorizing you cannot trace the actions back to him.
    I went to take the test to own a gun. When I called they said come on down. When I got there within the half hour they were all out of tests. This is the power of the Muslim man in my life.
    This country has no idea what I have endured for over ten years. Unbelievable terrorism. Violent abuse. I know more than 99.99% of women in this country what Muslims do to women. It is violently abusive beyond measures.

  • Mac-101

    You still have your kids? If not I’d end this problem PERMANATELY! If you have your children, not much ya can do. Just curse every backstabin Lib and especially the sorry a$$ women libbers who care squat about women, preach da word about the hazards of fallin for a smooth talkin Muslim man.

  • Jpmn

    Lynn, do not judge a religion by its followers. Judge a religion by its theology. All individual Christians have fallen short of the peaceful example of Jesus. Most Muslims have done far less evil than the pedophile prophet.

  • KLKL

    “great” Britain not so great anymore. the leftist political correctness has taken such hold in that country9 and nearly the same here in America, i’m afraid) that they will permit a terrorist into their land but ban truth-tellers like Spencer and Geller. my apology for the rude ban. just goes to show what we are expect from our “leaders” these days.

  • Welcome to the new Islamic Republic of Brtain(istan).

  • Lynn

    Where did kids come into this? The Muslim was stalking me before I meet him. Even websites that talk about how bad Muslims are, protect them. Just like they are protecting the Muslim stalker in my life. When you are rich you can be an entitled terrorist and the world loves you.
    If people are not listening to what I have to say. If they do not want to help me and I am an American citizen, telling the world I have a Muslim terrorist in my life. Sites like this, who claim to be right wing conservatives are hypocrites, just like the libs you are talking about. There is no difference none.
    All religions are detrimental to women. They all make women second class citizens. They all take away women’s rights, control, oppress and suppress women. Women who follow any religion are not logical. Religion destroys women.

  • Mac-101

    You can’t figure this out? If this guy has ALL this money and influence and has ruined your life and ya gotta live in complete fear, without havin to worry about who takes care of the kids, I WOULD ASSURE that he never bothered me or anyone else again! But that’s just me.
