IT IS an unlikely setting from which to launch a fightback against Egypt’s new military rulers.

But a cramped flat above a disused kebab shop in North London has become the focal point of the Muslim Brotherhood’s effort to regroup after President Mohamed Morsi was forced from office and his movement declared a terrorist organisation.

The man fled to the UK from a conflict involving his family in Afghanistan in 2007, aged 16, and was allowed to stay in the UK until 2013.

  1. US slams reported Israeli criticism of Kerry plan as ´offensive´

    ROME: The US State Department on Tuesday condemned as “offensive and inappropriate” reported comments by Israel´s defence minister criticising a security plan put forward by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

    “The remarks of the defence minister if accurate are offensive and inappropriate especially given all that the United States is doing to support Israel´s security needs,” spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki told reporters following a visit by Kerry to the Vatican.

    The Yediot Aharonot newspaper in Israel on Tuesday reported Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon saying in private conversations with Israeli officials that Kerry´s plan was “not worth the paper it was written on”.

    The minister also accused Washington´s top diplomat of having an “incomprehensible obsession” about resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, accusing Kerry of being naive and implying he is a nuisance.

    “It provides neither security nor peace,” he reportedly said, adding: “The only thing that might save us is if John Kerry wins the Nobel Prize and leaves us be.”

    But Psaki said Kerry and his team “have been working day and night to try to promote a secure peace for Israel because of the Secretary´s deep concern for Israel´s future.”

    To question his motives and distort his proposals is not something we would expect from the defence minister of a close ally,” she said.

    Kerry coaxed Israelis and Palestinians back into direct negotiations last summer and has visited the region 10 times since taking over as secretary of state in February 2013.

    His proposals include a security plan for the Jordan Valley, where the West Bank borders Jordan, which would involve advanced hitech equipment and early warning stations that could allow Israel to reduce or replace its military presence in the area, Israeli media say.

    Israel has always said that it would have to maintain a military presence in the Jordan Valley in any final agreement, an idea completely rejected by the Palestinians.

  2. 5/

    He’s either an Atheist, which is fine (and safe) or he is a Muslim practising taqiyya which is not fine (and not safe)
    The trouble is…. how do you know?

  3. If anybody cared, they’d offer Christian refugees from the Mideast priority asylum.

    This Pope could make a real difference. At a minimum he could shame western Christians into standing up for their own. Isn’t that part of his job description?

  4. 4/ Of course. Doha probably doesn’t have all necessary amenities for Muslim terrorists.

    Spencer and Geller weren’t allowed in FOR A VISIT.

  5. #1

    Imagine if the Germans had fought WWII using the same techniques these Muslims use today. For instance, what if instead of dropping bombs on London during the Blitz, they had simply jumped out of their planes carrying blonde-haired toddlers and holding signs saying, “Look what a victim I am!”, only to go “splat!” right in front of the mainstream media who are, in turn, only too happy to report the incident as, “Racist Limeys kill unarmed German protesters!!!”. That’s exactly as crazy as the logic behind the Mavi Marmara plot, and that is exactly how our mainstream media reported it. This is all so incredibly nutty, and hardly anybody seems to be picking up on it. It’s all a big sick joke!

  6. Softly

    Taqqiya is the reason that Spain had to setup an Inquisition to determine who were genuine converts to Christianity, and those that were lying through their teeth so they could stay on in Spain till better times arrived.

  7. Also because the property of anybody accused – and that of their families – was confiscated and given to the Crown. Didn’t matter if they were found innocent.
