Fawzi Haffar was on British TV yesterday as the “voice of reason” of Didsbury Mosque in Manchester. He said that Salman Abedi’s attack had no place in the religion of Islam and said that “Manchester is a great city, with a great history and a prosperous and bright future ahead of it. The Manchester Islamic Centre is proud to be part of this great city of Manchester.”
“Two Muslim leaders from Manchester presented as voices of coexistence following terrorist attack alleged to have sent antisemitic tweets,” Campaign Against Antisemitism, May 25, 2017:
In recent days, as Manchester reels from the atrocity inflicted at the Manchester Arena, Fawzi Haffar and Dr Siema Iqbal have been presented as local Muslim leaders in Manchester who speak out firmly against extremism, but according to a collection of tweets brought to light by Manchester-based North West Friends of Israel, both Mr Haffar and Dr Iqbal eschew their moderate messages when it comes to Jews.

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared.
