East London Mosque breaks its promise on homophobic speakers after just eight days

From The Telegraph:

Earlier this month, reporting the East London Mosque/London Muslim Centre’s latest pledge to ban homophobic preachers, I described how the mosque has repeatedly lied and broken such promises before: waiting a couple of months until the coast is clear, then bringing the extremists back.

This time, however, it has only taken just over a week for the mosque’s bad faith to emerge. The day after tomorrow, 29 June, it welcomes to its premises an organisation called Sex and Relationship Education Islamic (SRE Islamic), one of whose main purposes is to campaign for “the unacceptability of homosexuality which is often portrayed as a lifestyle choice.” That’s a quote from the first sentence of SRE Islamic’s statement of values.

SRE Islamic is run by members of Hizb ut Tahrir, a racist and extremist group which believes that Muslims should not mix with non-Muslims. Hizb ut Tahrir says that Muslims who believe in democracy are “kafir,” or unbelievers. Hizb ut Tahrir works for a worldwide Islamic superstate, or caliphate (as does the Islamic Forum of Europe, which runs the mosque.)

SRE Islamic’s director and Hizb ut Tahrir member, Yusuf Patel, will be speaking at Wednesday’s event, alongside the director of the East London Mosque himself, Dilowar Khan: a clear official endorsement by the mosque. Indeed, the meeting is co-sponsored by the mosque.

Let us remind ourselves what Salman Farsi, the mosque’s PR, said on 9 June, exactly 18 days ago: “Any speaker who is believed to have said something homophobic will not be allowed to use our premises.”

Wednesday’s meeting is not just with someone who has “said something homophobic,” but is organised by a campaign explicitly dedicated to promoting the “unacceptability of homosexuality.” The meeting was first advertised on 17 June, precisely eight days after Mr Farsi’s ringing pledge.

Could there be a clearer indication of just how much an East London Mosque promise is worth?

  1. This happens again and again, and will probably never stop because of Taqqiyah. Taqqiyah, or lying, is not only allowed in islam but also sanctioned by their so-called prophet. Lying to protect the islamic caliphate or true intentions of world sharia is allowed. Reminds me again of part of the song done by the Monty Python crew, “Never shake hands with an Arab…”. The befuddled and cowardly UK government and its minions in allowing this sort of propagation of islamic terrorism is seeding its own downfall. Never trust a muslim, period… he/she will smile at you and pretend that you’re his best friend, but in behind that smile he is plotting your extinction.

  2. As generations of Europeans once stated: “Never trust a Muslim.”

    By “generations” I am speaking of those people who had direct contact with Islamic states from circa 720 AD to circa 1700 AD and beyond. Those were the generations who said what they meant and reported what they knew without the stigma of political correctness.

  3. Andrew Gilligan should realize that what the imam had invoked was a kind of Hudna – a period of calm before normal Islamic aggression against Kuffars continues.
    A Hudna can last upto 10 years, but can be much less if the Kuffar state, or its leaders, are perceived as weak.
