What did British authorities think Mohamed Amoudi would do? Did they think he would outgrow his youthful “radicalization”? Did they think that the manifest kindness and generosity of the British government toward Islam and Muslims would warm his heart and move him to drop jihad? Did they think that the British government’s relentless and ruthless demonization and persecution of “Islamophobes” would make him see that jihad was unnecessary and maybe not quite sporting against so friendly and compliant a government? Did they think that the Vast Majority of Peaceful Muslims would convince Amoudi that his understanding of Islam was a twisted, hijacked version held only by “extremists” both Muslim and non-Muslim?
The British government’s refusal to acknowledge the motivating ideology, nature, and magnitude of the jihad threat enabled Mohamed Amoudi’s jihad. And there is no doubt that there are countless others like him in Britain today.
“Terror Raid Suspect Allegedly Took Teens to Join Islamic State in 2015,” by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart, April 29, 2017:
Terror suspect Mohamed Amoudi, arrested in raids on Thursday, is claimed to have previously been released without charge after being accused of taking two teenage boys to join Islamic State in Syria. Amoudi is believed to have taken the teens out of the country after attending a talk given by Moazzam Begg’s CAGE organisation hosted by an Islamic society at Queen Mary, University of London.
Amoudi, 21, who is reportedly a teacher with a master’s degree in physics, is considered a key suspect in an Islamist bomb plot. He was one of six people arrested in raids conducted by armed counterterror police in London and Kent.
The Times reports that Amoudi is a British citizen born in Yemen. In 2015, Amoudi took two 17-year-old boys from the Wembly area to Turkey. Turkish authorities suspected they were heading for the border with Syria, and were stopped and sent back to Britain. He was detained by British police, but was never charged.
Amoudi and the teenagers made the trip days after the suspect attended talks organised by human rights group CAGE, which represents former Guantanamo Bay inmates. The event was hosted by an Islamic society at Queen Mary, University of London, where Amoudi was studying. CAGE had described Islamic State executioner “Jihadi John”, Mohamed Emwazi, as a “beautiful young man”….
Amoudi was part of a group called Strivin Muslims, through which it is believed he met the schoolboys….
