Joan Smith: These preachers of hate must be exposed

The decision to investigate the Wahhabi influence in British mosques cannot be faulted

Published: 14 August 2007

In January last year, the Government suffered two shock defeats when MPs refused to overturn amendments made in the Lords to one of its flagship bills. The second division was lost by a single vote: the slenderest of majorities, but sufficient, it now turns out, to save Channel 4 from a prosecution for incitement to religious hatred.

How I escaped Islamism

The Sunday Times 

For almost four years I was on the front line of British Islamism serving as a regional officer in northeast England for Hizb ut-Tahrir, an extremist group committed to the creation of a puritanical caliphate. Since leaving in 2005, I’ve been concerned at just how easy it was for me to join a radical Islamist movement — and why there was hardly any support available when I decided to leave.

Don't let them terrorize our freedoms

By Diana West
Friday, August 10, 2007

 Remember when we heard that if only our leaders had known how to "connect the dots," the 9/11 attacks could have been prevented? After nearly six years without a similar attack, the government has learned much about detecting the outlines of jihadist terror plots before they take shape. As a result -- and after all the aggravations and humiliations of what I still hope are temporary safety procedures -- our security has remained essentially intact. But can we say the same thing about our freedoms?

The Prison Officers Association says that it is worried about radical Muslims preaching in British jails – where it is estimated that Muslims comprise around 11% of the entire UK prison population of 80,000! One of the problems is that many radical Muslims see it as their duty to spread the Islamic word, and where better than in institutions with “captive audiences”!

The Muslim Brotherhood “Project”

By Patrick Poole

One might be led to think that if international law enforcement authorities and Western intelligence agencies had discovered a twenty-year old document revealing a top-secret plan developed by the oldest Islamist organization with one of the most extensive terror networks in the world to launch a program of “cultural invasion” and eventual conquest of the West that virtually mirrors the tactics used by Islamists for more than two decades, that such news would scream from headlines published on the front pages and above the fold of the New York Times, Washington Post, London Times, Le Monde, Bild, and La Repubblica.

Finsbury Park: Inside the British Jihad

Global Politician 

Stepping off the subway at Finsbury Park, the change in scenery could not have been more acute. Just an hour earlier, I had been awed by the grandeur of Big Ben, towering over the British Houses of Parliament. It is the symbol of the England in our history books: a beacon of liberty, tolerance, and stability.

Iraq’s Christian Exodus
Targeted by all sides, Christians must choose to leave, or stay and face death.

Foreword: Saudi Arabia – The Heart of Evil in the World


Ana Belén Soage*

Secular activist and author Faraj Fawda was assassinated by Islamist militants in 1992 after al-Azhar accused him of blasphemy. His writings, in which he criticized the viability of the Islamist project and urged Muslims to reconsider their picture of the past, stand as a brave attempt to defy those who pretend to monopolize the interpretation of Islam and use religion to further their political aims.
