Banned Muslim Hate Preacher Invited To Speak In London – Event Funded By British Taxpayers
British law enforcement are in the midst investigating a heinous plot by group of Pakistani Muslim “students” to blow up shopping centres and nightclubs with the intent to cause the violent death and destruction of innocent British adults and children.
So in the midst of and despite this investigation – the ABSOLUTELY INCOMPETENT AND MORONIC British government is allowing Muslim cleric Sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki – who has links to Al Qaeda and the September 11 attacks – and who has been banned from the United States for using taped lectures to encourage terrorist attacks – to video-speak at a London conference paid for by British taxpayer’s! (AGAIN!)
“But the preacher of hate has been given the go-ahead to speak to an audience of hundreds at the three-day event in east London which is being held at a taxpayer-funded venue starting today.”
Where is this taxpayer funded muslim hate-fest being held? – It should comes as no surprise that this is happening at the Brady Arts Center – located in the heart of muslimized London = Tower Hamlets. SEE:
One wonders if “moderate muslims” will flood the streets of London to protest this “unIslamic” Muslim cleric Sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki ‘s speaking at this event? Like they did HERE – HERE –HERE – HERE – the examples are endless.

Anger was growing last night after it was revealed that an Islamic extremist linked to Al Qaeda and the September 11 hijackers is to address a UK conference by video.
Muslim cleric Sheikh Anwar al-Awlaki has been banned from the United States after he was accused of using taped lectures to encourage terrorist attacks.
But the preacher of hate has been given the go-ahead to speak to an audience of hundreds at the three-day event in east London which is being held at a taxpayer-funded venue starting today.
Tower Hamlets council granted permission for the pre-recorded video message to be broadcast despite admitting it “obviously had some concerns”.
Last night the council released a statement saying the decision had been made after consultations with police and Home Office officials. But politicians accused Home Secretary Jacqui Smith of failing to take action to crack down on extremists.
American-born al-Awlaki has been banned from returning to the US following accusations he acted as a spiritual adviser to three of the 9/11 terrorists.
He now lives in the Yemen where he served 16 months in jail, during which he claims he was interrogated by the FBI.
The US Department of Homeland Security describes al-Awlaki as an “Al Qaeda supporter” who uses the internet to encourage terror attacks and urge Muslims worldwide to take up jihad.
Last night Shadow Security Minister Pauline Neville-Jones called for the meeting to be banned.
She called al-Awlaki “one of the most prominent English-language supporters of violent jihad”.
But Tower Hamlets said it had found “no grounds” to prohibit the event, at the Brady arts centre in Whitechapel. A spokesman said: “We sought advice from the Home Office.
“These enquiries did not present us with grounds to prohibit playing of the message.”
Those attending are required to register online and pay a fee up to £70 which goes towards “promoting Islam”.
Hmmm….. would that be the same Home Secretary Jacqui Smith mentioned here: in a post I wrote last week?
