But of course, we all have to recognize the existence of the impenetrable firewall between “moderates” and “radicals,” on pain of being charged with “Islamophobia.”
“Blackburn terror suspect was to teach in mosque,” by Neil Docking for the Lancashire Telegraph, March 6 (thanks to Twostellas):
THE leader of a Muslim community has told how he invited a suspected terrorist from Blackburn to his country to teach at his new mosque.
Businessman Altaf Rajah told Manchester Crown Court that he asked Abbas Iqbal, 24, of Percival Street, Blackburn, to join his 200-strong organisation in Northern Europe.
Iqbal was arrested at Manchester Airport last summer when he and another alleged extremist were found carrying ‘terrorism-related material’.
Mr Rajah, who owns a petrol station and restaurant and imports oil from England, said he needed the duo to help at his Islamic centre.
He told the court through an interpreter that he was looking for somebody who spoke Urdu and Punjabi….
Yeah, sure, and there was absolutely no other Muslim around who could do that.
