BBC Expose Preacher Of Hate At Manchester Bomber’s Mosque
The BBC has exposed an imam who preached calls for Jihad at the mosque where Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi and his family prayed.
Mustafa Graf encouraged followers to ‘take action’ at the Didsbury Mosque in Manchester on December 16, 2016.
‘We ask Allah to grant them Mujahideen – our brothers and sisters right now in Aleppo and Syria and Iraq – to grant them victory’, he says.
‘Jihad for the sake of Allah is the source of pride and dignity for this nation’ – by which, of course, he meant the ‘nation’ of Islam and not Britain.
‘Brothers and sisters, it is time to act, not only to talk… Lots of brothers stay behind unfortunately, they love Islam and Muslims but they do nothing about the support of their brothers and sisters,’ he said.
Graf criticised Europe, America and the ‘so-called civilised world’ for watching on as the war ravaged Syria.
Abedi and his family regularly attended the mosque and his father – sometimes led the call to prayer.
In the days after the attack Graf came out an assured the public the mosque did not back the views of Abedi. But Usama Hasan, Head of Islamic Studies at Quilliam, has said he wouldn’t be surprised if Salman Abedi’s horrific suicide bombing was partly inspired by the sermon.
‘He’s giving them the narrative of them against us’, Islamic scholar Shaykh Rehan told BBC News.
‘The jihad he’s referring to here is actually being on the battlefield, there’s no if’s and no buts in this’.
‘He is psychologically and practically brainwashing young people into either travelling or to do something to take action.’
The event was organised by the so-called 17th of February Forum which is led by Graf.
Months later the same group held another protest in London, in which Abedi was filmed holding up a banner.
His daughter Eve was severely brain damaged, unable to speak, eat, or move the left side of her body.
‘I’d probably take him round to see Eve. I don’t think I’d need to say anything.’
At least five men who attended the mosque either went to fight in Syria or were jailed for supporting ISIS, according to the BBC.
The BBC documentary is a good piece of work. Unfortunately, it cannot make up for the role of the BBC in fanning hysteria about events in Libya and Syria among Britain’s Sunni Muslim community.
For six whole years, the BBC has relentlessly regurgitated the propaganda of the AlQaeda PR department, particularly their ‘White Helmets’ sub-group. In that, of course, they have only followed the line of the Conservative government, which has given the Islamist propaganda machine millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money.
The BBC also failed to reveal that Graf’s own propaganda campaign in favour of the Islamist rebels who destroyed Libya with the help of David Cameron was aided by North West of England Tory MEP Sajjad Karim and by his local Labour MP and the Manchester Evening News.
The collective guilt of the UK government and the liberal mass media in all this featured in the following report, issued by the KTI Intelligence Department and updated last December:
Look what they’re covering up now! The mainstream media have reported on the jailing of a Manchester-based Libyan man for ten years for belonging to ISIS. They have reported on how he and his friends got into ISIS after fighting in Libya in 2011. But they have carefully avoided the fact that the Manchester terror cell to which he, and his close friend Manchester bomber Salman Abedi, belonged was formed as a direct result of the British government and security services trying to use radical Muslims as weapons to achieve ‘regime change’ in Libya.
The Daily Mail was among the media outlets that reported on the conviction of Mohammed Abdallah:
“Footage has emerged of the jihadi linked to the Manchester Arena bomber fighting with militants in Libya before he tried to become an ISIS sniper.
“Mohammed Abdallah and his brother Abdalraouf were at the centre of a Manchester-based terror network which included Salman Abedi, who killed 22 at the Ariana Grande concert earlier this year.
“As unemployed former drug dealer Abdallah was jailed for 10 years today, footage showed him and his brother during a spell they spent in Libya fighting along militants in the country’s civil war.
“The brothers, who grew up in Manchester had dual Libyan nationality, joined the ‘Tripoli Brigade’ when the north African country fell apart in 2011.”
Hold it right there! Because the Tripoli Brigade was not some random bunch of Jihadi crazies. It was a part of the so-called National Liberation Army, the umbrella force organised to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi. The NLA was the ground-force backed by none other than David Cameron, who turned the RAF into the air arm of the Islamist rebellion.
It was founded, organised and led by Mahdi al-Harati, a Libyan-Irish citizen. It was armed by the CIA, through the American puppet regime in Qatar. The brigade included officers who had lived most of their lives in English speaking countries including Ireland, Canada, UK and the US.
An article in Ireland’s Sunday World drew attention to relations between Mahdi al-Harati and an unnamed US intelligence agency.
According to the article on November 6, 2011, €200,000 in cash was stolen from al-Harati’s Dublin house a month previously.
The Sunday World reported that a criminal gang working the area found two envelopes stuffed with €500 notes during a raid on the al-Harati’s family home, October 6.
The article, apparently relying on police sources, stated that al-Harati, who has been a Dublin resident employed as an Arabic teacher for 20 years, claimed, when contacted by police, that the stolen cash was “given to him by an American intelligence agency.”
The article continued, “Astonished officers made contact with Mahdi al-Harati who told them that he had travelled to France, the United States and Qatar the previous month and that representatives of an American intelligence agency had given him a significant amount of money to help in the efforts to defeat Gaddafi. He said he left two envelopes with his wife in case he was killed and took the rest of the cash with him when he went back to Libya.”
When Abdallah’s brother was shot and paralysed from the waist down, he was flown back to Britain to get NHS treatment. But the UK’s aid for the rebels went far beyond the ‘health tourism’ we’ve all come to expect in Soft Touch Britain.
Middle Eastern Eye blew the whistle on what really happened on 25th May 2017, in a major investigation entitled ‘Sorted’ by MI5: How UK government sent British-Libyans to fight Gadaffi. This included the following revelations:
“One British citizen with a Libyan background who was placed on a control order – effectively house arrest – because of fears that he would join militant groups in Iraq said he was “shocked” that he was able to travel to Libya in 2011 shortly after his control order was lifted.
“‘I was allowed to go, no questions asked,’ said the source, who wished to remain anonymous.
“He said he had met several other British-Libyans in London who also had control orders lifted in 2011 as the war against Gaddafi intensified, with the UK, France and the US carrying out air strikes and deploying special forces soldiers in support of the rebels.
“‘They didn’t have passports, they were looking for fakes or a way to smuggle themselves across,’ said the source.
“But within days of their control orders being lifted, British authorities returned their passports, he said.
“‘These were old school LIFG guys, they [the British authorities] knew what they were doing,’ he said, referring to the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, an anti-Gaddafi Islamist militant group formed in 1990 by Libyan veterans of the fight against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan.
“Belal Younis, another British citizen who went to Libya, described how he was stopped under ‘Schedule 7’ counter-terrorism powers on his return to the UK after a visit to the country in early 2011. Schedule 7 allows police and immigration officials to detain and question any person passing through border controls at ports and airports to determine whether they are involved in terrorism.He said he was subsequently asked by an intelligence officer from MI5, the UK’s domestic security agency: “Are you willing to go into battle?
“‘While I took time to find an answer he turned and told me the British government have no problem with people fighting against Gaddafi,’ he told MEE.
As he was travelling back to Libya in May 2011 he was approached by two counter-terrorism police officers in the departure lounge who told him that if he was going to fight he would be committing a crime.
But after providing them with the name and phone number of the MI5 officer he had spoken to previously, and following a quick phone call to him, he was waved through.
“As he waited to board the plane, he said the same MI5 officer called him to tell him that he had ‘sorted it out’.”
The Manchester bombing is a terrible and classic example of ‘blow back’. Sadly, it will not be the last.
