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.”
