Moazzam Begg discovered , for a second time, playing at Jihad?

Its a characteristic of our friends from the left that they love to take a stand “on principle” that those poor followers of Islam who were holidaying  at club Gitmo were of course all “innocent” men and that its just paranoia to think that they might possibly want to kill people in the name of Allah. While I have no desire to prejudge  anyone who has not yet been to trial it surely has to at least raise an eyebrow or three that UK police have just arrested one of the former holidaymakers  from Club Gitmo on terrorism charges:

Massoud Shadjareh, chair of the Islamic Human Rights Commission, said: “As someone who knows Moazzam on a personal level and as a fellow campaigner and activist I am shocked by his arrest. He is far from an extremist and takfiri. As a matter of fact he has always a been a vocal critic of sectarian and takfiri elements.”
Takfiri is a term used to describe Sunni extremists who view as apostates all those who do not follow their austere interpretation of Islam.

 

Surely this suggests that Moazzam Begg really deserved his Cuban holiday and that maybe he should enjoy another long holiday at one of Her Majesty’s fine hotels…

So how many holiday makers from Club Gitmo  would that make it who have been discovered , for  a second time, playing at Jihad?

Cheers Comrades
