We call upon the British government to hold a full-blown public enquiry into the Gulf States irresponsible funding of Islamic extremism/ terror in the UK, according to the think-tank the Henry Jackson Society & all of us here at Patriotic People’s Populist Media.
The report conducted by the Henry Jackson Society said “In the UK this funding has primarily taken the form of endowments to mosques and Islamic
educational institutions, which have in turn played host to extremist preachers and the distribution of extremist literature. Influence has also been exerted through the training of British Muslim religious leaders in Saudi Arabia, as well as the use of Saudi textbooks in a number of the UK’s independent Islamic schools.”
The think-tank also went on to say “The kingdom’s 60-year campaign to export hardline Wahhabi Islam has led to support for mosques and Islamic institutions that appear to have links to extremism” obviously talking about Saudi Arabia.
The report does not exclusively blame Saudi Arabia for the funding of Islamic extremism in the UK, it went on to say “The Qatari funded al-Muntada Trust, there appear
to be significant links. The trust is not only financed by Qatar but in 2013 the UK branch held its annual conference in Doha. The trust has been connected with a number of mosques where radicalisation has taken place. Specifically, in the case of a group of young British men from Cardiff, it has been suggested that attendance at the al-Muntada linked al-Manar Mosque was significant in their radicalisation and decision to travel to Syria and join the Islamic State.”
In Austria the foreign funding of mosques has been banned.
Even Labour MP, Dan Jarvis said “This report from the Henry Jackson Society sheds light on what are extremely worrying links between Saudi Arabia and the funding of extremism here in the UK.”
Theresa May’s four-point plan to end extremism & defeat terror
- Tougher sentences for terror offences
- Less tolerance of extremism
- Holding online social media giants to account
- Reinforce British values
Foreign funding for Islamic Extremism in the UK seems to come from three states in the Gulf in particular Iran, Qatar & Saudi Arabia so why aren’t we placing massive sanctions on these countries? And exposing them for the terrorist sympathisers they really are.
The author of the report Tom Wilson said “There is a clear and growing link between foreign funding of Islamist extremism and the violent terrorism we have witnessed across the UK and Europe.
“The key now is to get ahead of the issue and find out the full extent of what has been going on. A public inquiry would go some way to informing the debate.
“While entities from across the Gulf and Iran have been guilty of advancing extremism, those in Saudi Arabia are undoubtedly at the top of the list.
“Research indicates that some Saudi individuals and foundations have been apparently heavily involved in exporting an illiberal, bigoted Wahhabi ideology.”
Britain’s policy makers unfortunately are square pegs in a round hole when it comes to tackling issues like this, but this is not something we can ignore and hope goes away because it will not. USA, Austria & France have all made different measures in the past to stump foreign organisations or governments funding extremism and mosques so why the hell hasn’t Britain? We have heard very little about this since January, 2016 when former Prime Minister David Cameron acknowledged that there
is a problem of Saudi funded education programmes in the UK that may be responsible for promoting Islamist extremism. But since then almost nothing… The government’s in Europe and the West need to start taking Gulf States funding hard-line religious indoctrination in our countries which leads to a radical fifth-column in our countries who want nothing more then to destroy us and our culture.
Theresa May if you are reading this, which I doubt you are please address the problem with the Gulf States funding Islamic extremism in the UK before we end up with varied Islamic terrorist factions in the UK like there is in Syria and hold a full-blown public enquiry into it.
