Muslim who claimed killing UK soldiers was ‘justified’ becomes director of Muslim group with influence over British government

“Azad Ali, head of community development and engagement at Muslim Engagement and Development (Mend), said the Westminster Bridge attack last month was ‘not terrorism’.”

This savage should be under close surveillance and investigation. Instead, he has access to the corridors of power. This is emblematic of the corruption and decay of modern Britain. If things don’t turn around soon, Britain will soon cease to exist as a free society.

“Islamist who claimed killing British soldiers was ‘justified’ becomes director of a controversial Muslim pressure group with influence over Westminster,” by Martin Robinson, Mailonline, April 10, 2017 (thanks to Samantha):

An extremist who said he supported the killing of British soldiers has been appointed a director of a controversial Muslim pressure group with influence at Westminster.

Azad Ali, head of community development and engagement at Muslim Engagement and Development (Mend), said the Westminster Bridge attack last month was ‘not terrorism’.

Mr Ali said on Facebook that Khalid Masood, who murdered PC Keith Palmer and four pedestrians, should referred to as ‘a lone wolf’. The Met Police has been treating it as a terror attack.

He also said that the Government’s fury with WhatsApp for giving terrorists ‘a place to hide’ was ministers ‘trying to invade more of our privacy’, according to The Times.

His Facebook post came after it emerged that Masood had used the messaging service two minutes before he ploughed into at least 50 people with a 4X4 before stabbing PC Palmer to death.

Mr Ali has previously lost a libel action against several newspapers that said he was ‘a hardline Islamic extremist who supports the killing of British and American soldiers in Iraq by fellow Muslims as justified’.

Mr Ali’s lawyers at Carter-Ruck said his comments on the Westminster Bridge attack were ‘referring to terrorism in the sense of organised acts co-ordinated by terrorist groups’.

His legal teams also said Mr Ali considered it ‘a barbarous and cruel act of murder for which there was no possible justification or mitigation’.

In 2009 it emerged that Mr Ali, then an IT worker and president of the Civil Service Islamic Society, was suspended on full pay for six months following comments on his blog.

In one post Mr Ali quoted an interview with an Islamic militant who said: ‘If I saw an American or British man wearing a soldier’s uniform inside Iraq I would kill him because that is my obligation.

‘If I found the same soldier in Jordan I wouldn’t touch him. In Iraq he is a fighter and an occupier, here he is not. I respect this as the main instruction in my religion for jihad.’

Sir Gus O’Donnell, then Britain’s most senior civil servant and patron of the Civil Service Islamic Society, ordered that Mr Ali be suspended while an investigation was carried out.

Six months later the investigation finished and Mr Ali returned to his job.

His group Mend works with politicians on all sides, the police and the CPS to enhance the engagement of British Muslims in UK life.

Today The Times made a number of claims about the organisation.

It said that Labour’s Yasmin Qureshi, the shadow justice minister, accepted a £5,000 donation from Mend’s founder Sufyan Ismail – but failed to name him as the donor.

The newspaper also claims that The Charity Commission will speak to three charities over their funding of Mend speaking events.

At one an Islamic speaker considered to have extreme views told the audience that killing comes easily to ‘the children of Israel’….

    britain is finished, it is another sweden where muslims demand the government rubber stamp shari’a, which it does. It is a wast of time and effort to pay any attention to britain as it is not interested in helping itself do anything but become a caliphate.

  • Allan Ong

    When white Brits are either too embarrassed or ashamed of their own identity, such arrogant self-entitled supremacists will be allowed to simply take over. Wake up Brits and stake your claim.

  • One can only hope he gets stabbed to death.

    maybe a travel ban from the muslim majority country, britian should be instituted.

    • Yes, they allow many Islamists in freely, yet have banned Pamela Geller…

  • Alleged Comment

    Proof we have democracy and they don’t. You would NEVER be allowed to say something like that about them and live if you were in their country.

    They should be nothing more than a mere curiosity here but EXECUTED if they carry out their beliefs.

    The uk is already a muslim country, so what’s the beef neighbor?

  • Merlinever

    Pay attention people. What the Muslims are doing in the U.K. and Europe they can and are doing here.
    Remember that just recently Keith Ellison, a devout Muslim who is a member of our CONGRESS, was nearly elected to be the Chair of the DNC.

    Just like here in America, outspoken jihadis rise up to take power in the government. Where are the people? They sit back waiting to be skinned like sheep.

    It is sad that a once great nation as the UK has fallen to such indifference. At one time they led the world in most everything. Science, Industry, Education, Commerce. We are an offspring and carried that greatness forward. However I am afraid they will shortly die and with our current society of having our heads buried in the a 3 inch screen will quickly follow.

      Sad yes but the UK is not alone as the colonies (who proudly proclaim their independence) are using you as a blueprint. Canada is leading the way, Australia is following along at a steady pace. New Zealand, the last bastion, has turned on the drip feed. The outlook is not great.
