The Finsbury Park Mosque has been tied to jihad terror for years. Abu Hamza, the one-eyed, hook-handed imam who preached jihad against the kuffar openly and tried to set up an al-Qaeda training camp in Oregon, was the imam there for years. Then when he went to prison, Finsbury Park Mosque officials insisted that the mosque had undergone a “complete overhaul” and had rejected “extremism.”
Here is the truth. “Mohammed Sawalha holds the role of trustee at Finsbury Park Mosque…It emerged today that Mr Sawalha represented the militant Palestinian organisation Hamas at recent talks in Moscow.”
Is anyone surprised? Really? Hamas is dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish State. Why? Because Islamic Jew-hatred is in the Qur’an. The idea that Muslims do not hold to what is written in the Qur’an is a fantasy of Western leaders. In reality, what Mohammed Sawalha believes is no different from what Muslims the world over believe.
“Leader at Finsbury Park Mosque is a ruling member of banned terrorist group Hamas’s political wing,” by Richard Spillett, MailOnline, November 7, 2017:
A trustee at one of London’s best-known mosques is a senior member of ‘terrorist organisation’ Hamas’s political wing, it was reported this morning.
Mohammed Sawalha holds the role of trustee at Finsbury Park Mosque in north London, which was formerly linked to extremism but which insists it has since undergone an ‘complete overhaul’.
It emerged today that Mr Sawalha represented the militant Palestinian organisation Hamas at recent talks in Moscow.
Sawalha, who lives in London, was appointed a trustee of the mosque in 2010 and is legally responsible for overseeing the mosque’s management, The Times reported today.
He was one of five senior figures from the Islamist organisation who were sent to Moscow in September, where they met Russia’s deputy foreign minister Mikhail Bogdanov and other Kremlin officials.
One of the group told Middle East news website Al-Monitor that the meeting between Hamas and top Russian officials was ‘an important milestone’
The delegate added: ‘Russia is a great power, at a time when the United States wants Hamas to be labeled as a terrorist group and be isolated.’
The UK only designates Hamas’s military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, as a terrorist organisation, not the political wing, meaning Mr Sawalha has broken no rules.
But his prominence at the north London mosque may unsettle some who are concerned about the organisation’s reach in the UK.
The mosque has been visited many times by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who was previously criticised for describing Hamas as ‘friends’. He later said he regretted using the term….
