“Anti-Semitic Saudi chief imam feted in London: Senior cleric of Mecca’s Grand Mosque speaks at East London Mosque,” from Peter Tatchell, Green Party parliamentary candidate for Oxford East, August 4 (thanks to Pamela) via JW:

Despite his sectarian, racist incitements that Jews are “scum…rats…pigs and monkeys,” the chief cleric of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Sheikh Abdul Rahman al Sudais, has been welcomed and invited to preach at the East London mosque in Whitechapel tonight, Tuesday evening, 4 August 2009.Al-Sudais, who has close ties to the Saudi elite, has also insulted Christians and Hindus, referring disparagingly to Christians as “cross-worshippers” and Hindus as “idol worshippers”.

He has been banned from Canada for his anti-Semitism.

The chairman of the East London mosque is Muhammad Abdul Bari. He is also the leader of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB).

Although the MCB has condemned anti-Semitism, it has previously declined to criticise the anti-Semitism of al-Sudais and has continued to support him despite his anti-Jewish tirade.

“Al-Sudais has stoked religious sectarianism and anti-Jewish racism. He has never expressed any regret,” said human rights campaigner, Peter Tatchell, who is urging the East London mosque and the MCB to publicly condemn al-Sudais’s “shameful prejudice.”

“As a condition for him being allowed to preach, the East London mosque and MCB should insist that al-Sudais apologise for his anti-Semitism and publicly state his opposition to hatred, discrimination and violence against Jewish people.

“The East London mosque received $US1m from the Saudis towards its new London Muslim Centre. The mosque’s links to Saudi Arabia go back many years, according to the BBC.

“I don’t understand why the Home Secretary is allowing al-Sudais into Britain, given that similar hate preachers have been banned. Is it because of the close business links between the British and Saudi establishments? ” queried Mr Tatchell.

“Al-Sudais was appointed imam of the Grand Mosque by the royal leaders of the pro-western Saudi dictatorship. His continuing tenure as chief imam is a damning indictment of the Saudi regime’s toleration of anti-Semitism.

“I am surprised that the Jewish community in Britain has not kicked up a big fuss about him coming to Britain,” said Mr Tatchell….

Tatchell has many quotes from Al-Sudais establishing his antisemitism.

Australia’s military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan has made it a prime target for Islamic extremists, including home-grown militants intent on waging domestic jihad, experts said Wednesday. I really think Australia desperatly needs better ‘experts’- what say you?

  1. “the chief cleric of the Grand Mosque in Mecca”

    CHIEF cleric GRAND mosque – how impressive !
    To me he looks like a fat bundle of ignorance and malice .
    If he had to make his own way in the world
    (in Oz , for example ) , and couldn’t claim any special ‘religious’ knowledge , he’d be lucky if he got a job washing dishes !

  2. Looks like Peter Tatchell has got his wits about him. Let’s hope he gets elected and that he keeps on making noise.

  3. East London Mosque Condemns Extremism, Again

    The East London Mosque is absolutely great at putting out statements against “extremism”:

    The director of the East London Mosque has condemned “any actions” that incite hatred as police investigate threats made against a woman working in Whitechapel by Muslim extremists. The woman was approached by people telling her “to cover up” at the pharmacy where she works and its owner was told there would be a boycott unless she dressed differently, according to her husband. Two threats have been reported to Tower Hamlets police, the second last Tuesday and neither the woman nor her husband want to be named because of the nature of the threats. Dilowar Khan, director of the mosque and London Muslim Centre in Whitechapel Road, said: “There have been certain incidents in the borough by a handful of people recently who do not represent the mainstream or majority Muslim view. “We condemn any actions that resort to inciting hatred and disrupting the cohesion of our various communities. “We continue to work hand-in-hand with other groups to ensure that Tower Hamlets is a place for harmony and will never be a place for inequality and intolerance.”

    But not quite so good at making good on its promises.

    One month ago, the extremist Tayyibun Institute hosted a conference at the East London Mosque/London Muslim Centre, featuring Abdul-Rahman Al-Barrak, a Saudi hate preacher, who teaches that gender mixing is so bad that its unrepentant proponents must be killed. Writers who argue against denigrating religious people who are not Sunni Muslims as “unbelievers” should also be executed.

    Was this event banned? No it was not.

    Up to 1,500 East Enders turned up at the London Muslim Centre in Whitechapel on Sunday to hear speakers from Islamic educational organisation the Tayyibun Institute. Concerns were raised with both Tower Hamlets Council and the police that divisive speakers were to be hosted at the annual conference. … Abu Ayman, the institute’s senior administrator, said: “He is not banned. If there was an issue that someone was doing something illegal – and I stress illegal, not just a difference of opinion – then we will take action. “I would invite these individual to attend our events so they can hear the discussion for themselves and see the amount of females to males. Seventy per cent of our institute are female.” Tower Hamlets Council said after talks with the organisers it got confirmation that no banned speakers would be appearing. A spokesman said: “We have been working closely with the London Muslim Centre, who are signatories to the borough’s No Place for Hate pledge, to ensure that the event is managed in line with their commitment to work towards good relations between communities and that these concerns are taken on board in managing this booking.”

    Next month a conference at the London Muslim Centre will feature four speakers who have supported attacks on British troops. No extremism there, no siree!

    Over the last five years the East London Mosque has received public sector funding totalling £2.6 million. It is quite happy to peddle any old dishonest PR bullshit to hang onto that cash.
