A Muslim lobby group, which regularly works with police, MPs, and local government, promotes “extremism”, harbours anti-Semites, and gives a platform to Muslim grievance narratives and Islamist views, a report has found. Muslim Engagement and Development (Mend) claims to help British Muslims engage in the democratic process.
In a similar fashion across the Western world, Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups that claim to support democracy, diversity and human rights have been influencing public policy in keeping with their sharia objectives.
Mend has enjoyed considerable influence over the UK’s police, and Mr. Ali and others from the group have worked with numerous forces and councils, training them about Islamic doctrine, Muslim grievance narratives, and so-called “Islamophobic hate crimes”….They have a huge amount of power in Manchester.
You can access the Muslim Brotherhood plan for North America here. For a list of unindicted co-conspirators to jihad terrorism, click here. Yet CAIR retains significant influence among government and law enforcement officials, although even the United Arab Emirates listed CAIR as a terrorist group.
The MB plan is intended to sabotage the West from within:
“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers…”
This is the reason why the West is under siege, terrified of being called “racist” or “Islamophobic,” and therefore tolerating the intolerable, such as the heightened risks of jihad attacks, Islamic hate preachers, al Quds day rallies that call for violence (and murder) against Jews, an inferior status for women, the burqa, FGM, mass sexual abuse against Infidel women in Europe, and the attempted silencing — and smearing — of those who highlight the truth about the staggering global abuses that are being committed in the name of Islam, referring to them deceitfully as “Islamophobes.”
“Report: Muslim Lobby Group Mend ‘Promotes Extremism’, Works with MPs and Police,” by Liam Deacon, Breitbart, October 31, 2017:
A Muslim lobby group, which regularly works with police, MPs, and local government, promotes “extremism”, harbours anti-Semites, and gives a platform to Muslim grievance narratives and Islamist views, a report has found.
Muslim Engagement and Development (Mend) claims to help British Muslims engage in the democratic process, but its leaders are detailed as opposing democracy in favour of sharia, having legitimised the killing of British troops, and promoting conspiracy theories about Islamist terror, The Henry Jackson Society report found.
They have praised and/or partnered with other groups linked to extremism, such as iERA, the anti-Semitic Friends of Al Aqsa and, most regularly, the allegedly “pro-terrorist” group Cage.
The report also explains how Mend has consistently fought against liberal, pro-West Muslims, and sought to destroy many counter-terror laws including Prevent.
Some Tory MPs have now said they will back away from the group following the report, but Labour’s Stephen Kinnock said he would still host an up-and-coming meeting with Mend.
Despite their opposition to Prevent, the Borough of Tower Hamlets once paid Mend £25,262.40 to help to evaluate their “No Place for Hate” campaign, which was part of the borough’s implementation of Prevent.
One of the longest-serving and most prominent figures in Mend, Azad Ali, gives talks in schools and has had meetings with police.
Yet, in 2010, he lost a libel case against the Daily Mail, with the court finding the paper was justified in describing him as a “hardline Islamic extremist who supports the killing of British and American soldiers in Iraq,” due to writings on his blog.
He has also attacked “infidels” on the blog, saying Muslims should “hate” their actions, praised the leader of the terror group Hamas, and advocated sharia law, which he said should come before respecting democracy. On Twitter, he has urged Muslim to “refuse to comply with” counter-terror laws.
He has also worked for a group accused of bringing extremist speakers to the East London Mosque, including the 9/11-linked Al-Qaeda cleric Anwar Al Awlaki, who Mr. Ali has personally said he has “love” for.
Mend has enjoyed considerable influence over the UK’s police, and Mr. Ali and others from the group have worked with numerous forces and councils, training them about Islamic doctrine, Muslim grievance narratives, and so-called “Islamophobic hate crimes”.
They have a huge amount of power in Manchester, where they are one of only two Islamic groups on the ‘Ending Islamophobia Action Planning Group’, alongside Greater Manchester police, Manchester city council, and the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner.
Before his election, Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham shared a platform Mend, after he implied Muslims should not work with police and opposed counter-terror laws.
Author of the report and Research Fellow at The Henry Jackson Society, Tom Wilson, said:
“This report demonstrates in considerable detail why Mend’s message risks being so dangerous. It also exposes the many shocking and troubling statements from individuals who have been part of that organisation over the years.
