The Evening Standard newspaper last Friday published what is truly a very alarming story. The following headline is sure to cause maximum panic just weeks ahead of the Olympic Games.
Mosque near Olympics site in ‘terror link’ investigation
The same story by the B.B.C. with a headline slightly more in touch with the reality of the situation but with only slightly less of the sensationalism contained in the Evening Standard
‘Mosque’s terror links’ investigated by Charity Commission
The Mosque being accused here of having “terror links” is Masjid al Tawhid in Leyton, East London. The Mosque is literally overlooking the Olympic site and therefore the person who made these allegations knew very well the panic and fear that his allegations would produce.
Residents of London are already nervous after it was revealed that thousands of military, security and police officers with a massive array of weaponry will be surrounding the Olympic site – read here a Sky News analysis on the war ships, helicopters, drones, missile launchers on rooftops etc that will ensure we are “free from danger” during the Olympics.
I personally do not feel safe at all, being a resident of London I am only too aware of the devastating results that armed police can have on unarmed civilians. For example the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes and Mark Duggan which sparked last summer’s riots or the shootings at Forest Gate. If our police and military have been sharing training with the Israelis again we could all be doomed. Actually a good question is, just how did the justice system become so corrupt that our police enjoy the same impunity and zero accountability for killing civilians as the Israelis do?
The man who made the serious terrorism allegations is Dr Usama Hasan, you can watch him being interviewed by the B.B.C. here. I have previously written about Usama Hasan and how he deviated from mainstream Sunni Islam setting himself on a trajectory which now sees him working against Muslims and Islam read my article here. Usama Hasan is now fully Zionised and conversant in the typical Zionist tactic of scaremongering about potential terror attacks to create fear of Muslims and Islam. I think I might have been slightly wrong to previously accuse Usama Hasan of taking the Queen’s shilling to become a soldier in the “War On Islam” – I was wrong, in my opininon these days he is probably paid in Shekels.
For non Muslim readers I feel it is necessary to explain some background on how mosques in the U.K. function. My own local mosque in Finchley is a prime example of how Muslims import the concept of dictatorship and corruption from “back home”. Once in possesion of positions on the committee or board of trustees men will do almost anything to stay there. I say men since mosque committees remain a purely male domain. We all followed the Arab revolutions on T.V. but if you think Hosni Mubarak was difficult to shift you cannot imagine how deep the roots under the thrones of “elected” mosque officials in Britain go. In cities with large Asian populations leadership runs on tribal lines but in Finchley according to our President at our recent A.G.M. we are “better educated” and mosque membership consists of mostly professional Muslims. Democratic dictatorship by the educated – and with a smile. Our President is proud and confident that with so many accountants on the committee we can be sure that the mosque accounts will be kept well balanced. We were instructed that they are very worthy of this trust by the President himself. I do wonder though about the bigger trust which is to carry the message of Islam and provide guidance to the community somehow I doubt they are up to it.
This rise to the professional classes is mostly down to the hard work and dedication of parents who came to this country and worked extremely hard running Asian restaurants or similar businesses and who were rightly so proud when their offspring went to university. Many of these offspring managed to absorb the worst of cultural practices from “back home” and adopt some of the worst of our culture as well. Islam is the only path that we should be treading yet the evidence of confusion is apparent in the actions of mosque committees up and down the country. Inviting Mike Freer our local openly pro Israel, pro Gay Marriage and therefore anti Islam M.P. to come and advise us in the mosque against the will of many in the community and beyond is just such an action. Finchley Mosque and Mike Freer saga here here and here .
In Leyton Mosque dictatorship and corruption manifested itself in the previously very respected Sheik Suhaib Hasan father of Usama stubbornly defending his son’s right to continue imposing himself on the congregation as Imam. With Usama Hasan’s deviant views which were unacceptable to the majority of Muslims inevitably a growing movement against him was established. The end result of mosque committees who insist on going against the will of the community – both in Finchley (read here) and Leyton (read here) were headline grabbing “Death threat” headline news – such “washing of dirty linen in public” is something particularly hated by our community. But would our leaders ever learn to listen?
The only tried and trusted method of silencing dissenting voices in U.K. mosques is exactly the same method as kept Mubarak et al in position for decades elsewhere. First get into place, possibly by staging a coup then impose a “democracy” on your own terms. Reduce the community’s ability to vote you out by restricting membership to those who you personally accept after a long probationary period or even better invite only those to join who you can be sure will vote for you. Secondly change the Constitution to narrow opportunities for any further coups or takeovers. If you can stifle discussion in the mosque, restrict membership and voting rights you should be able to stay “President for Life”! Out of the 800 or so people who pray in our mosque on Fridays there are perhaps 60 who are members of the association and only half of those turned up to the A.G.M. this gives an indication of the lack of real democratic practice and community involvement in how a mosque is run.
One of the highlights for me of the recent A.G.M. in Finchley was the accounts for the previous year being explained in detail and which we were told now contain no expenditure for the rather ominous category of “security”. I take that as a good indictation that any dissenting voices to the will of the committee have now been dealt with permanently! Persistant dissenters can be banned, the more faint hearted just give up and go to another mosque but the sad result is a “pray and go” mosque. People come at prayer time and leave quickly afterwards, not the true function of a mosque which should be run as a community centre. As if we did not have many problems in our community like youth crime and other issues to deal with, but you will find the mosque door locked during the day just like the church over the road and we know very well how many empty churches are being sold up and down the country.
To cut short what could be a very long story, Masjid al Tawhid in Leyton has been paralysed for years by a power struggle among the trustees over the deviated beliefs of Usama Hasan and the wish of the majority in the community to have him removed as Imam and trustee. Where you find an Imam or leader who preaches what is to mainstream Muslims considered deviation from the true message you will get increasing complaints, when they are not listened to which is often the case, then you get loud and angry complaints which after some time escalate into protests and very angry scenes. Mosques run along tribal or dictatorship lines are very bad at listening to complaints, with many elected representatives forgetting that they are there to serve the community.
Years of paralysis in the trusteeship of Masjid al Tawhid was finally resolved recently by outside arbitration where Usama Hasan stepping down from any role in the mosque was part of the agreement. However, and here is the massive sting in the tail – whilst Usama Hasan agreed to step down and really he must have known that his departure was innevitable, he was already very nastily sending a letter to the Charity Commission claiming that the mosque was a place for potential terror plots. As if that was not bad enough he foolishly implicated Sheik Haitham al Haddad in this, despite the fact that Sheik Haitham had been a mediator in the long dispute over mosque trusteeship, his role as arbitrator agreed by both sides. Just to make Usama Hasan’s claims even more ridiculous Sheik Haitham al Haddad sits on the Shariah Council with Usama Hasan’s father. Is Usama Hasan implying that his own father is a trustee of a terrorist mosque?
The Zionist methodology of “guilt by association” is how Usama Hasan implicated Sheik Haitham into this so called potential terror scenario by saying that the underwear bomber Abdulmatallab had listened to talks by Sheik Haitham. So what about the thousands of Muslims who also listened to Sheik Haitham and didn’t allegedly try and blow up airplanes? Abdulmatallab’s own notes give no hint that anything he might have heard spoken by Sheik Haitham had radicalised him in any way. Evidently Usama Hasan realised the ridiculousness of his claims as by the time he was interviewed by the B.B.C. he had dropped his allegations against any individuals.
Finally to cap it all Usama Hasan has now dropped his request for an enquiry, probably realising that it was very evident to everyone that it was an act of pure spite and vindictivness on his part, but to save face the so called “extremism think tank” called the Quilliam foundation that Hasan works for have taken up the request for Masjid al Tawhid to be investigated. Read all about it on Islamophobia Watch website here. But for the public who have already read the sensationalist headlines, the damage to the reputation of Leyton Mosque and of the Muslims who pray in it, is already done.
A very sad episode indeed which can only serve to take away any shred of credibility, not as an Imam because he had already lost that, but perhaps as a person with even an ounce of integrity that Usama Hasan might have had left.
I really hope these claims by Usama Hasan and the Quilliam foundation are not laying the foundations of a cover story for a huge Olympic False Flag Operation.
