Islamic Hate Preacher Shakeel Begg Hosted Workshop For Muslim Foster Parents In London

Following on from this weekends breaking story about a Christian girl placed with Muslim extremist foster parents in Tower Hamlets. Who forced the child to remove a cross necklace she wore and encouraged the child to live an Islamic lifestyle. The Telegraph today reports that notourious Muslim hate cleric Shakeel Begg ran a workshop for potential Muslim foster carers. 

Shakeel Begg is the imam at Lewisham Islamic Centre, where the Muslim radicals who murdered Drummer Lee Rigby attended on a regular basis. 

Shakeel Begg recently failed in the High Court when he took exception to being called an extremist in the press. The judge like anybody else with common sense disagreed with the hate preacher, ruling he did have extremist views and threw his case out. Begg is a regular guest speaker at communist front group Unite Against Fascism events which speaks volumes about his character.You dont have to be a genius to imagine what kind of advice he was giving to the  Muslim foster parents

An extremist Islamic preacher helped in the recruitment of foster parents, The Telegraph can disclose, amid a growing row over a Christian child placed in the care of devout Muslims.
The imam hosted a workshop for would-be foster carers just months after the High Court ruled him an “extremist Islamic speaker ” who had “promoted and encouraged religious violence”. His mosque, the Lewisham Islamic Centre, was attended by the killers of Fusilier Lee Rigby. The imam and the centre had condemned the murder.
The event was organised on behalf of the London borough of Lewisham as part of a drive to find more Muslims willing to foster children.
The disclosure comes amid a growing furore over the decision by crisis-ridden Tower Hamlets, another London council, to place a five-year-old girl in the care of two Muslim households.
A council source said the borough had a shortage of non-Muslim carers with whom to place Christian children.

In contrast, most councils have a shortage of Muslim families to provide foster care for children of Islamic heritage.
Lewisham Islamic Centre was chosen as the venue for a workshop “on the importance and need of foster carers in the Muslim community” in March this year. A photograph from the event posted on the mosque’s website shows the gathering being addressed by Shakeel Begg, the imam.
Mr Begg had just a few months earlier lost a High Court libel case against the BBC which accused him of promoting extremism.
Mr Justice Haddon-Cave, ruling in the BBC’s favour, described Mr Begg as a “Jekyll and Hyde character” and “an extremist Islamic speaker who espouses extremist Islamic positions”.
Tom Wilson, a research fellow at the Henry Jackson Society who has written a research paper on Begg, condemned the hosting : “It is inconceivable that those who espouse extremism should be overseeing childcare of any kind, including fostering. Shakeel Begg was found to be an extremist in the High Court as recently as October, and despite this Lewisham Islamic Centre has kept him in place as Imam and a trustee.

“Institutions linked to extremism are in no position to be involved in the foster process”.
Lewisham Council declined to comment on Mr Begg’s suitability to host the meeting. A council spokesman said: “Like all councils we need foster carers from all parts of the community and we will continue to visit a range of groups to encourage more people to foster in Lewisham.”
NRS Foster Care Recruitment, which organised the workshop on behalf of Lewisham council, said it had no idea that Mr Begg had been branded an extremist and said he was not involved in the event. “We have no control over who may or may not be at an information sessions,” said a spokesman, adding: “We promote our services to different faith groups.”
Mr Begg was unavailable for comment. But he has in the past vigorously contested the High Court decision. “As regards the Judgment and the ‘extremist’ label, this is fully rejected,” according to a post on the Lewisham Islamic Centre website.
The Department for Education said it was undertaking a national fostering ‘stocktake’ that would examine the recruitment of foster carers.
The case in Tower Hamlets highlights the difficulty of matching children to the right carers. A council source suggested the borough lacked sufficient Christian families where children could be placed.
Anne Longfield, Children’s Commissioner for England, said: “I am concerned at these reports. A child’s religious, racial and cultural background should be taken into consideration when they are placed with foster carers.”
Michael Nazir-Ali, former bishop of Rochester, said: “It is quite clear that birth parents retain the right to a child’s religious beliefs and, in any case, guidance to foster parents requires that they give attention to a child’s cultural and religious identity.
“At the very least there’s been a violation of that requirement.”
Confidential local authority reports suggest one of the girl’s foster carers removed her necklace, which had a Christian cross, and also suggested she should learn Arabic. The girl was said at times to be “very distressed”. Her present carer allegedly wears a burka when with the child in public.
Tower Hamlets Council said in a statement on Tuesday that it disputed some of the claims in the case. A spokesman said: “While we cannot go into details of a case that would identify a child in foster care, there are inaccuracies in the reporting of it.
“For example, the child is in fact fostered by an English speaking family of mixed race in this temporary placement. We would like to give more details but we are legally restricted to do so.”
The spokesman added: “Tower Hamlets Council has the welfare of children at the heart of what we do. The decision to choose foster carers for a child is based on a number of factors including cultural background and proximity to promote contact with the child’s family and the child’s school in order to give them as much stability as possible.”

Hate Preacher Shakeel Begg Loses Libel Action Against BBC For Being Called Extremist

Shakeel Begg, one of the UKs most notorious hate preachers has lost a libel action against the BBC after a judge ruled he had promoted violence.

 Begg who is the imam at  Lewisham Islamic Centre, London tried suing the BBC after being accused on the Sunday Politics show by host Andrew Neil of espousing extreme beliefs. Something those of us familiar with Shakeel Begg know to be completely true.

The judge said that Lewisham Islamic Centre’s chief imam had hidden his true views behind a cloak of respectability.Mr Justice Haddon-Cave said he “clearly promotes and encourages violence in support of Islam and espouses a series of extremist Islamic positions”.”On occasions when it has suited him…he has shed the cloak of respectability and revealed the horns of extremism.”

Lewisham Islamic Centre has long been known as an extremist hotspot. Both Woolwich killers of Lee Rigby regularly attended the mosque. Extremist Shakeel Begg has often spoke in favour of jihad and is a known supporter of terrorist sympathisers  CAGE(prisoners). Speaking at many of their events  in support of jailed Muslim terrorists including one outside Belmarsh prison.

Shakeel Begg has also spoken at protests calling for the release of Aatifa Siddique aka ‘Lady Al-Qaeda’ who is a convicted killer and serving a life sentence in the US. His fellow LIC mosque imam  Ilyas Townsend is a leading figure in the extremist group campaigning for the female jihadist murderers release from prison

Begg  is also a favoured guest speaker of far-left extremists, Unite Against Fascism. The communist UAF more than happy to get in bed with islamofascists to help attack the establishment from within.

Below is a video of Begg speaking  at an event for Hhugs, a charity entirely dedicated to helping the families of terrorists arrested and convicted here in the UK.

“Helping the families of brothers who are in prison, giving to those families, supporting those families, coming to their aid when they are in times of need and help, is like as if we are making jihad in the path of Allah. And we know jihad in the path of Allah is of the greatest of deeds that a Muslim can take part in.”

Here’s Begg at another terrorist cheerleader event. Its Cageprisoners this time, the fans of jailed terrorists founded by an ex gitmo detainee. Begg hails former Guantanamo inmates as “inspiring” and worthy of a divine salute. 

“…[it is] inspiring to be amongst some of our brothers who made hijra [migration] in the path of Allah, who made jihad in the path of Allah, who suffered in the path of Allah, our brothers from Guantanamo Bay. May Allah have mercy upon them, may Allah accept all their good deeds and all their fasting especially in the month of Ramadan, and may Allah grant them Jannah [paradise].”

Andrew Neil on the set of Sunday Politics
The BBC said it was right to stand by the journalism of the Sunday Politics show, presented by Andrew Neil

Shakeel Begg is extremely influential among islamists in the UK where he promotes Salafi (wahabi) brand of Islam. The same warped ideology as that of ISIS, Al-Qaeda, Anjem Choudary and the majority of other Muslim undesirables.

In November 2013, BBC presenter Andrew Neil alleged on the Sunday Politics that the imam had said that jihad was the greatest of deeds.

Despite the imam’s protestations during the libel trial, Mr Justice Haddon-Cave said four of his speeches showed he had promoted such violence and two that he had espoused extremist positions.

“Shakeel Begg, is something of a Jekyll and Hyde character,” he said.

“He appears to present one face to the general, local and inter-faith community and another to particular Muslim and other receptive audiences. The former face is benign, tolerant and ecumenical.”The latter face is ideologically extreme and intolerant.”

In one speech in 2006, Imam Begg encouraged a student audience to fight in the Palestinian territories. Two years later he praised Muslims who had travelled abroad to fight enemies of Islam.

A third speech outside the maximum security Belmarsh Prison in south-east London, which holds some of the most dangerous terrorism convicts in the country, was described by the judge as “particularly sinister”. 

“The various core extremist messages which emerge from the claimant’s speeches and utterances would, in my view, have been quite clear to the audiences.

“The claimant’s ostensible cloak of respectability is likely to have made his [extremist] message in these speeches all the more compelling and seductive. For this reason, therefore, his messages would have been all the more effective and dangerous.

“It is all too easy for someone in the claimant’s position of power and influence as an Imam to plant the seed of Islamic extremism in a young mind, which is then liable to be propagated on the internet.”

A spokesman for the BBC welcomed the ruling against the imam who now faces an enormous legal bill.

“We were right to stand by the journalism of the Sunday Politics. The judge has concluded, based on the evidence, that Imam Begg has preached religious violence and an extremist worldview in his remarks.”

Hate Preacher Who Inspired Lee Rigby Killers To Sue BBC For Being Called Extremist

Hardline imam Shakeel Begg, 37, is suing the BBC saying it described him as an 'extremist' 
HATE PREACHER SHAKEEL BEGG UPSET AT BEING CALLED EXTREMIST

 

KERCHING !!  Notorious hate preacher Shakeel Begg has seen £ signs in front of his eyes and is attempting to sue the BBC. Demanding libel damages and BBC don’t call him ‘extremist’  again. You couldn’t make this stuff up. A Muslim extremist getting upset at being called a Muslim extremist.

Shakeel Begg is the Salafist imam at Lewisham Islamic Centre in South-East London, the mosque where Lee Rigby’s murderers attended. Another mosque regular was Khadijah Dare who used the Twitter name Muhajirah fi Sham (meaning “immigrant in Syria”). She was radicalised here in the UK and ran off to join ISIS and marry a jihadist.  Making regular postings on social media calling for other British based Muslim women to join her in Syria. She recently caused controversy  posting pictures of her young son who she took to Syria with her holding a AK-47.

The Mail on Sunday reported : A hardline imam at a mosque where the killers of soldier Lee Rigby worshipped is suing the BBC, saying it described him as an ‘extremist’.Shakeel Begg, 37, is taking legal action after presenter Andrew Neil said on the Sunday Politics Show that the imam had praised jihad as ‘the greatest of deeds’.Mr Begg, head of the Lewisham Islamic Centre in South-East London, is demanding libel damages and that the BBC doesn’t again call him an ‘extremist’ who ‘encourages religious violence’.

According to the High Court writ, Mr Neil interviewed Farooq Murad, then head of the Muslim Council of Britain, during the Sunday Politics Show in November 2013.
Mr Neil said the East London Mosque in Whitechapel was ‘a venue for a number of extremist speakers…who espouse extremist positions’.

The presenter added: ‘This year Shakeel Begg, he spoke there and hailed jihad as the greatest of deeds.’ Mr Begg has said he cannot recall making such a speech at the East London Mosque. But in 2011 he told guests at a charity dinner elsewhere that ‘jihad in the path of Allah is one of the greatest deeds a Muslim can take part in’. Asked about that speech, he explained that by ‘jihad’ he had meant ‘spiritual struggle’.

Mr Begg did not deny Mr Rigby’s killers – Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22 – attended the Lewisham Islamic Centre in the months leading up to the Woolwich attack.
But he said the Centre had issued a statement expressing ‘shock and sadness’.A Centre spokesman said: ‘We and our imam work closely with various community groups, including the police.’
The BBC last night declined to comment.

Begg  has been regarded as an extremist since way before the Woolich murder of Lee Rigby. In 2006 he reportedly told students “You want to make jihad? Very good… take some money and go to Palestine and fight, fight the terrorists, fight the Zionists”.

Its not only non Muslims who consider him an extremist either. A Muslim website called Islam Against Extremism cites Shakeel Begg alongside the likes of Abu Hamza, Anjem Choudary and Abu Qatada in being responsible for the radicalization of Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale. Their website states:

“As has come to light recently, Michael Adebolajo was influenced by Shakeel Begg in the latter’s verdicts of jihad in Syria, and is part of what led him to believe that unless you participate in jihad today you are sinful, and that jihad is fard al-ayn (an individual obligation). This is certainly the idea that is presented by extremists like Shakeel Begg

They also state Begg is very devious and manipulative in his ways of radicalising those he preaches to. Pushing the work and ideology of  Sayyid Qutb. An Islamist theologian who fused radical Safalist Islam with Marxism / Communism. Osama Bin Laden, Anwar al-Awlaki and Hasan al-Banna founder of the Muslim Brotherhood were all notable Qutbists. 

Shakeel Begg has something of a fetish for Muslim prisoners and not your petty crook sort either. High profile Muslim prisoners charged with terrorist offences. Some who have murdered in the name of Allah, others who are said to of been behind terrorist attacks.

The above video shows the hate preacher speaking at a rally outside Belmarsh prison in London he spoke of solidarity for his fellow Muslim brothers locked up unfairly in Belmarsh and around the world. Those prisoners held in Belmarsh prison at the time included hate preacher Abu Qatada who was deported on murder/terrorism charges. Hook handed Abu Hamza, recently sentenced to life imprisonment in the USA for terrorism. Babar Ahmed who protested his innocence whilst held in Belmarsh only to plead guilty at his terrorism trial in America.

Again in the video below is Shakeel Begg at a conference staged by Cageprisoners, the terrorist support group. Begg finds former Guantanamo inmates “inspiring” and worthy of a divine salute. 

“…[it is] inspiring to be amongst some of our brothers who madehijra [migration] in the path of Allah, who made jihad in the path of Allah, who suffered in the path of Allah, our brothers from Guantanamo Bay. May Allah have mercy upon them, may Allah accept all their good deeds and all their fasting especially in the month of Ramadan, and may Allah grant them jannah [paradise].”

Begg is a staunch supporter of jailed Pakistani scientist Dr Aafia Siddiqui nicknamed Lady al Qaeda. Siddiqui’s release was included in the demands of terrorists ISIS for a failed prisoner exchange for an American hostage. Shakeel Begg has spoke at fundraisers for the terrorist prisoner.

Shakeel Begg is one of Unite Against Fascism’s  favourite extremist guest speakers. He has been a regular at events run by the communist UAF over recent years. The UAF are more than happy to share the platform with Islamofascists.

The hate preacher has released a statement on his mosque website regarding the Mail’s article. Attempting to portray himself as the victim and likening the Daily Mail to Hitlers Nazi’s propaganda as he seized power in pre war Germany.

 

UAF Havent Learnt Their Lesson And Invite Islamic Hate Preacher To Speak In Woolwich

Looks like UAF haven’t learnt much of a lesson about their association with Islamofascists after it emerging Woolwich Muslim Killer Michael Adebolajo had given a hate speech at ‘Unite Against Fascism’ counter demo. It would seem the SWP’s money making machine has once again got into bed with Muslim extremists for today’s Woolwich counter BNP demo, this time in the form of radical hate preacher Shakeel Begg who is a known homophobic and also  for his jihad loving and defence of  Muslim terrorists.

Unite Against Fascism and Shakeel Begg

Lucy Lips, May 31st 2013, 3:27 pm

There is no good time to team up with Islamist extremists. There are also especially bad times to make such a foolish move. The aftermath of the terrorist murder in Woolwich is one of those times.

Yet this is exactly what the self-styled “anti-racists” of Unite Against Fascism (UAF) say they will do tomorrow in Woolwich. One of the scheduled speakers at their rally will be Shakeel Begg, who is closely associated with the Lewisham Islamic Centre.

Begg is a hate preacher with a special interest in terrorist suspects and convicts. Have a look at him here at a conference staged by Cageprisoners, the terrorist support group. Begg finds former Guantanamo inmates “inspiring” and worthy of a divine salute.

“…[it is] inspiring to be amongst some of our brothers who madehijra [migration] in the path of Allah, who made jihad in the path of Allah, who suffered in the path of Allah, our brothers from Guantanamo Bay. May Allah have mercy upon them, may Allah accept all their good deeds and all their fasting especially in the month of Ramadan, and may Allah grant them jannah [paradise].”

You’ll see more of the same in this clip from a meeting of Hhugs, another terrorist support group. This time Begg hails jihad as “the greatest of deeds”.

Helping the families of brothers who are in prison, giving to those families, supporting those families, coming to their aid when they are in times of need and help, is like as if we are making jihad in the path of Allah. And we know jihad in the path of Allah is of the greatest of deeds that a Muslim can take part in.

On and on it goes in Mr Begg’s record. See this clip, for example, from an extremist rally at Belmarsh. He calls the prison’s terrorist inmates “brothers” and rails against their “oppressors”. Note that these are dangerous men who have been snared by the British security and legal systems, not people picked up in Afghanistan and dumped in Guantanamo.

Naturally Israel too must be targeted. According to a report in 2006, Begg has told British Muslims they should join the jihad against it.

Shakeel Begg, another radical cleric, recently urged students at Kingston University, southwest London, to wage jihad in Palestine. In a tape-recorded speech obtained by The Sunday Times, Begg, who is a Muslim chaplain at Goldsmiths College, part of London University, said: “You want to make jihad? Very good… Take some money and go to Palestine and fight, fight the terrorists, fight the Zionists.”

As for the police, they must not be helped, for they are the devil. Here he savages another preacher who spoke at a police conference.

It is ridiculously outrageous for a Muslim speaker to lure the anti-terrorism officers into using him and other religious leaders against the Muslim community. This is not to say that we should not work to prevent unlawful violence. In fact, many have been at the forefront of this work, without signing a deal with the devil, or joining any sort of alliance, be it natural or otherwise, with the brutal, cunning and oppressive anti-terrorism workforce.

Mr Begg is most certainly not working to “prevent unlawful violence”. He is stoking the very fires that have produced British terrorists time after time, while slating the brave officers fighting terror as evil people whom Muslims must shun.

This is no one off for the UAF. The far left sect has long made a point of helping such dangerous haters. In fact, one of UAF’s vice chairs is none other than Azad Ali, the notorious extremist of the Islamic Forum of Europe. Ali doesn’t even have time for democracy if it comes without sharia law.

Democracy, if it means that, you know, at the expense of not implementing the sharia, of course no one agrees with that.

The record is plain. Everyone should see UAF as part of the problem and no component of any solution.

Yet Labour figures Len Duvall AM and Jennette Arnold AM are scheduledto speak at the UAF rally tomorrow. If they actually do, they are idiots.

East London Mosque To Host Muslim Hate Preachers In Fundraiser For Al-Qeada Jailed Terrorist

The Islamic Republic Of Tower Hamlets and its extremist East London Mosque are to host a fundraising conference for Al-Qaeda terrorist Dr Aafia Siddiqui who is serving 83 years in an American prison for attempting to kill her American interrogators after being captured in Afghanistan. Pakistani by birth she moved to America where she studied and became a prominent member of the Muslim Students Association. It was as a MSA member she fell under the spell of Abdullah Azzam, a Muslim Brother who was also Osama bin Laden’s mentor.  She wrote three guides for teaching Islam, expressing the hope in one: “that our humble effort continues … and more and more people come to the [religion] of Allah until America becomes a Muslim land.”During the recent hostage crisis in Algeria, One of the Muslim terrorists demands was to call for her release. Hardly candidate for a Nobel peace prize.

The east london mosque in the islamic republic of tower hamlets to host fundraiser for Muslim Al-qaeda prisoner with guest islamic  hate preachers

The East London Mosque is no stranger to controversy and regularly hosts Islamofascist hate preachers.  The mosque is a member of the Tower Hamlets Inter Faith Forum,a founding member of The East London Communities Organisation (TELCO),and an affiliate of the Muslim Council of Britain. The Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE) and the mosque are very closely intertwined,the organisation was created in 1989 by Muslims involved in the running of the East London Mosque.Some of the mosque’s practices reflect the Hanafi school of law. According to Delwar Hussain it shares the ideology of the Jamaat-e-Islami, and the Muslim Brotherhood. The mosque is a breeding ground for Muslim Extremists and pushes an Islamo-nazi ideology calling for Sharia and Islamic domination.

Guest speakers include Iman Shakeel Begg of Lewisham Islamic Centre another extremist linked mosque. He is a regular speaker for Islamist front group Caged Prisoners who have links to Al-Qeada.

Shakeel Begg urged Muslim students to participate in jihad by going to Palestine and fighting against Israel 

“Shakeel Begg, another radical cleric, recently urged students at Kingston University, southwest London, to wage jihad in Palestine. In a tape-recorded speech obtained by The Sunday Times, Begg, who is a Muslim chaplain at Goldsmiths College, part of London University, said: “You want to make jihad? Very good… Take some money and go to Palestine and fight, fight the terrorists, fight the Zionists.”  Source

The extremist imam disproves of fellow Muslims cooperating with the anti-terror police which could essentially save lives.

“It is with much sadness that I read Tawfique Chowdhury’s speech to the anti-terrorism officers in Wales, which he brazenly posted on an Islamic blog. I was deeply shocked and appalled by his enthusiasm for collaboration with a body that has failed its own war against Islam and the Muslims at home and abroad. It is deplorable for a graduate from the prestigious Islamic University of the Prophet’s city – the first Islamic State – where the subject of ‘Aqida is emphasised the most, to declare himself an ally of the West against Islam, not even by choice, but naturally. It is ridiculously outrageous for a Muslim speaker to lure the anti-terrorism officers into using him and other religious leaders against the Muslim community”    Source

I’ll bet Sexcase Smith and his so-called anti fascist chums at the UAF aren’t organizing mass communist mobilization in opposition of this fascist Muslim event. In their tiny minds you have to be British and white to be considered fascist.
