The recent arrest of Moazzam Begg, which I will not comment on directly for legal reasons, has helped to focus attention on the pro-Jihadi campaigning organisation Cage (aka Cageprisoners).
One of the results of this focus on Cageprisoners is that more people than those of the counterjihad community will now hear what a dodgy organisation they are, how they are out and out jihad supporters and how they have booked and supported speakers who encourage violence. Sadly such a bunch of seditionaires are not solely financially supported by tin rattling in Britain’s Muslim enclaves, two major charitable trusts are also funding them. The Anita Roddick Foundation and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation are chucking money at these fifth columnists to the tune of a total of £435,000 GBP. Quaker and Leftist funds are going to the very organisations that assist those who wish to kill or enslave Britons, are these groups mad, stupid or treasonous?
The story is being covered by Jihad Watch who said:
“Even before Moazzam Begg was arrested, CagePrisoners was rather obviously a pro-jihad group, not just supporting al-Awlaki but hosting talks by him. And just last summer they featured as a speaker the imam Shakeel Begg, who has said that it was “inspiring to be amongst some of our brothers who made hijra in the path of Allah, who made jihad in the path of Allah, who suffered in the path of Allah, our brothers from Guantanamo Bay. May Allah have mercy upon them, may Allah accept all their good deeds and all their fasting especially in the month of Ramadan, and may Allah grant them jannah [Paradise].” It’s a sign of how far gone Britain really is that an outfit like CagePrisoners would be the darling of the trendy Left, and be showered with donations from Leftists who despise their own nation and heritage, while foes of jihad terror are demonized, marginalized, and banned from the country.
“Mainstream charities have donated thousands to Islamic group fronted by terror suspect,” by David Barrett and Robert Mendick for the Telegraph, March 1 (thanks to Twostellas):
A controversial Islamic rights group fronted by a man charged with attending a terror training camp in Syria is being bankrolled by two mainstream British charities, including a foundation set up in the name of Dame Anita Roddick.
CagePrisoners, an organisation founded by Moazzam Begg – who has just appeared in court on terror charges – has been given £120,000 by the Anita Roddick Foundation, which distributes part of the former Body Shop owner’s £100 million fortune.
A second charity, the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, a Quaker-run fund set up by the chocolate-maker and philanthropist a century ago, has also paid CagePrisoners £305,000 over six years.
Last week, Begg, 45, who became director of CagePrisoners after his release from Guantanamo Bay in 2005, was one of four suspects picked up in Birmingham over alleged links to terrorism in Syria.

Truly the Rowntree and Roddick foundations are the living definition of Useful Idiots because they are funding and supporting the very people, and the very ideology that desires greatly that the heads of useful idiot Liberal Lefties who give them support, should be separated from their bodies. What we are seeing here is the political Left and the political Leftist Establishment, effectively saying ‘Kill us, we deserve it’ and it is utterly disgusting. There is so much more good these Foundations could be doing and assisting jihadists or their apologists is totally unacceptable as a charitable activity.
