Azzam Tamimi, a Palestinian academic who is now based in London, is infamous for declaring that sacrificing oneself is a “noble cause”.

He has said that he would blow himself up in a strike against Israel, were he allowed back in the country, and has declared his support for Hamas, which is outlawed in Britain under the Terrorism Act.

He told the BBC in 2004: “You see, sacrificing myself for Palestine is a noble cause. It is the straight way to pleasing my God and I would do it if I had the opportunity.”

Mr Tamimi has been invited to speak at Birmingham University by its Islamic Society, at an event on Wednesday to commemorate the first anniversary of the “Israeli-led carnage” in the “concentration camp that is Gaza”.

His forthcoming appearance has been criticised by the Centre for Social Cohesion, a think tank that highlights Islamic radicalism in Britain.

Its director, Douglas Murray, said: “Birmingham University is clearly in denial. Our letter to them unmistakably demonstrates that Azzam Tamimi has repeatedly supported violent jihadist acts, and their Director of Academic Services has completely refused to acknowledge this.”

A spokesman for the university said: “The University of Birmingham has a code of practice on freedom of speech on campus, and those seeking to invite outside speakers onto campus must fill in a freedom of speech request form at least 15 days before the proposed event.

“The University has received a freedom of speech request from the Islamic Society for Azzam Tamimi to speak on campus and the event will go ahead as planned.

“Universities are plural societies which are home to differences of opinion, debate and views. The University of Birmingham hosts many visitors and events every year and itself is a community of 150 nations situated in a vibrant multi-cultural City. We respect the right of all individuals to exercise freedom of speech within the law; we are also intolerant of discrimination of any kind.”

The Islamic Society’s website denies it condones terrorism and states: “ISOC is completely against and appalled by the blowing up of buildings and the killing of innocent people, and this is something that the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, forbade.”

Concerns about allegations of Muslim extremism on British campuses have been heightened following the alleged attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the former president of University College London’s Islamic society, to bring down a passenger jet over Detroit on Christmas Day.

  1. See I told you! He is so-o-o-o-o close to suicide, he is completely frustrated in not being able to do it.
    He is as mad as a rattle snake.

    The paragraphs below are transposed with Tamimi’s own words just to show the complete and utter weakness of U.K. authorities to act in very clear cases of terrorism.

    HOW CAN THE UNIVERSITY CALL WHAT TAMIMI SAYS “differences of opinion, debate and views” When he has said that he would blow himself up in a strike against Israel, and has declared his support for Hamas, which is outlawed in Britain under the Terrorism Act.” ? How weak is that?

    A deluge of media releases in the U.K. might do the trick of highlighting the man’s pure dangerous madness.

  2. The UK has apparently gone beyond the point where it is even worth the effort of reasoning with them … a dying, decaying nation, disappearing down the gurgler with little attempt to do anything, except go with the flow. Grey water.

  3. “You see, sacrificing myself for Palestine is a noble cause. It is the straight way to pleasing my God and I would do it if I had the opportunity.”

    Sacrificing yourself for a fantasy is just a fantasy. Whether it pleases Satan is debatable. If you really want to blow yourself up we’ll help you with our secret Zionist ass-bomb, Tamimi.

    We’ll even give you the lubricant for free… deal?

  4. Mullah, you have hit the nail on the head. Why haven’t the British authorities moved in on this fellow? Total blindness – monkey see nothing, monkey hear nothing, monkey say nothing.

  5. The organ grinder has trained the British monkey well – Tamimi won’t need to “sacrifice himself” destroying the UK, when the Government should be on suicide watch:

    UK Government backs Islamists in battle to remove their names from terror list

    The Government is secretly supporting an attempt by UK-based Islamists to have their names removed from an international terror blacklist …

    They include individuals who were:

    * convicted of involvement in the 2003 Casablanca bombings and of possessing terrorist documents in the UK,

    * accused of assisting the 1998 bombings of two US embassies in Africa and of being an associate of Osama bin Laden,

    * found guilty by a military court of plotting terror attacks.

    But an attempt by the men to have their names removed from the UN list has now won the backing of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). …

    1. The infinite wisdom of the Nullabor crew combined with cowardice and dependence on the Mohammedan vote.

      The result of self-inflicted turn-speak and the old “fighting crime creates more crime”-logic, which they believe should be extended to the soldiers of allah: “fighting Islamic terrorism creates more Islamic terror…”

      Remember: MINISTERS have been BANNED from using words like Islamist and fundamentalist – in case they offend Muslims.

      The creatures who subscribe to these policies will sooner or later pay for it. What goes around, comes around. But why do so many innocents have to get hurt for their foolishness and dereliction of duty?

  6. Its not just Britain that can’t do anything. Its the entire Western world that is unable to do anything, as Muslims use our culture of freedom of expression to propagate their hate filled cult of Islam.

    The solution will come when ordinary people realize what is happeneing, and that it is their duty to defend the nation. When that happens, the state will will come on board.

    Sooner or later. there will be a realisation that Muslims and Islam have no place in the West, and for the safety of both, a separation is necessary.

  7. What you should do is name and shame those in authority who are bending over backwards for moslems. One day, you will find this list of names useful when these men and women are prosecuted for high treason.

  8. DP111,I agree with your comment but i don”t bother for the safety of the muzz,it’s not my problem i don’t think the muzz never thought about the safety of others.

  9. If I were attending his lecture I would be sure to carry a pie and perhaps and extra pair of shoes…one pair for throwing and the other for running.

  10. Following this idiocy to it’s logical conclusion,this mob would allow Hitler to have his rant,can’t discriminate against someone for having a different point of view,that’s not jolly cricket,what !

  11. Porky the Crusader

    Concern for all humans, including muslims, is the only way that one can even talk of separation, specially in public, otherwise your arguments will be dismissed outright. Concern for all, particularly what will happen to Muslims in Europe, if and when things get nasty, will allow you to advance what we need for our own safety.

    I dont care what happens to Islam once they are out of here. It may well be that separation from the teat of Western welfare may well cause a Reformation, but that will be side benefit.

  12. Particularly galling that Abu Hamza, (the ‘hook”) who for years and years scrounged off welfare, with taxpayer supported wives and criminal sons, kept calling Britain ‘a cesspool’ and now, in prison, fights tooth and nail against extradition to his native Yemen (or Syria) again, at taxpayer expense while he’s in gaol.

    There are hundreds, if not thousands like him. But Britttania never managed to eject even one.

    Amazing!

  13. I was wondering why it has been so quiet.
    I thought he had taken hinself up on his offer and become a martyr.
    Anyone who was sounding off like him is close to some sort of catastrophy.
    However, look at this! Just after this presentation at Birmingham University…

    I might have missed an article or two during that time but not much gets past me.

    Has anyone heard any updates?
