earlier article I have done some checks on all the members of Warsi's "Freedom of Religion or Belief" Group. It turns out that Tariq Ramadan, the Muslim Brotherhood poster boy and antisemite who in 2006 was banned from the US because of his links to terrorism is by no means an exceptional choice. Of the 15 members of the group (including Warsi) NINE are either focused solely on Islamic interests and/or have a very clear anti-Israel bias. Since the 'Policy' of the Group is stated as "Promoting human rights internationally" and the topics covered are: "Equality, rights and citizenship, Foreign affairs and International aid and development", this is a curious bunch to have chosen. So who are these people who, on behalf of Great Britain, are going to promote equality and defend our human rights? Step forward:
- Baroness Warsi (Chair), unelected Muslim supremacist in Cabinet who seeks to criminalise all criticism of Islam
- Tariq Ramadan, the Swiss-born Muslim Brotherhood poster boy and antisemite
- Waqar Azmi: Chairman of "Remembering Srebrenica" (i.e. focused solely on Muslim victimhood)
- Ed Husain: the so-called "ex-Islamist" whose views on Israel put him very firmly in the Islamist camp
- Malcolm D. Evans (Professor of Public International Law): the very same Malcolm Evans who is an 'expert' on the anti-Israel "Public Committee against Torture in Israel"
- Mashood Baderin Nigerian-born Professor at the notoriously anti-Israel SOAS, University of London whose specialist subject is Islamic Law
- Kate Allen: the anti-Israel goon who is UK Director of Amnesty International - an anti-Israel and genuinely antisemitic organisation (see more here).
- Shami Chakrabarti: the ludicrous Director of Liberty- a woman who has never met an Islamic terrorist she would not defend to the hilt and yet who is amazingly quiet when it comes to defending the rights of those who do not fit her world-view of politics.
- David Mepham UK Director of the anti-Israel organisation Human Rights Watch
The token Jew on the Group is Trevor Pears, of the Pears Foundation which (although funding some worthy causes) also funded the pro-Hamas organisation Forward Thinking and now funds the Israel Boycott movement.
The following have no obvious pro-Islam or anti-Israel slant (but note that all conform to a leftist worldview):
- Joel Edwards: Jamaican-born International Director of Micah Challenge which describes itself as "a global coalition of Christians holding governments to account for their pledge to halve extreme poverty by 2015"
- Tom Gallagher Professor of Ethnic Conflict & Peace University of Bradford
- Edward Kessler Executive Director of Woolf Institute which describes itself as a "global leader in the academic study of relations between Jews, Christians and Muslims"
- Mervyn Thomas Chief Executive Christian Solidarity Worldwide
- Andrew Copson Chief Executive British Humanist Association
