From Elsewhere: Only in Britain, would a founder of a group that promoted the teachings of Osama Bin Laden get a job as an advisor on Islamic extremism in the Prison Service.

The stupid and indeed suicidal tendencies of Britain’s public servants and politicians seems to know no bounds. How else but ‘stupid and suicidal’ can you describe the act of hiring a Muslim decradicaliser whose group promotes the teachings of Osama Bin Laden?

The centre-Left website Harry’s Place, has an anonymous guest post by someone describing themselves as a former Muslim prison chaplain, and it makes grim reading. It shows not only how far dangerous Islamists have managed to insert themselves into the UK Home Office, but also how damnably stupid and ill-informed have been the civil servants and ministers who have allowed them to penetrate this far.

Harry’s Place said

Ahtsham Ali is the National Offender Management Service (NOMSMuslim Advisor at HM Prison Service Headquarters.  He is responsible for appointing Muslim chaplains in prisons.  For a person in such a sensitive role he has a somewhat worrying background; he was formerly the managing editor of theHAMAS supporting Islamist magazine ‘Trends‘ and a key Islamist recruiter.  Throughout the 1990’s he was active in the British Islamist scene promoting Islamist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) and Jamaat-e-Islaami (JI), as well as radicalising a whole generation of young British Muslims.  For the past 18 years he has been studying under the tutelage of Sheikh Abdullah Al Judai who is a part of the European Council for Fatawa and Research (ECFR), a Muslim Brotherhood front group.  ECFR is presided over by the suicide bombing supporter and anti-Semite Yusuf Al Qardawi.  Ali’s teacher Al-Judai is also promoted by the Islamic Forum of Europe (IFE); another Islamist group which seeks to undermine democracy and is linked to JI.

Ali regularly speaks on Islamist platforms; for example, he spoke on a UK Islamic Mission (UKIM) platform as recently as last year.  He is also believed to be the brains behind the NOMS deradicalisation programme Ibaana which wasscrapped by the current Justice Secretary Michael Gove after it emerged that it promoted the teachings of Osama bin Laden, Mohammad Siddique Khan (7/7 bomber) and other Islamist terrorists.

Under Ali’s watch British prison chaplains have included Sahib Bleher, the former Imam at Woodhill Prison, who was also the General Secretary of the Islamic Party of Britain, a political party that advocated killing homosexuals and transforming Britain into an Islamic State (more details on extremist chaplains can be found here).   According to the British academic Sophie Gilliat-Ray, many Muslim chaplaincy posts have been given to individuals who follow Deobandism which has been described as a hard-line Islamic sect which spawned the Taliban.  

Read the rest of this excellent piece here:

If Britain had a sensible civil service and sensible ministers and other representatives, these supporters of Jihad and others who have a vested interest in pushing the lie that Islam is a religion of peace, wouldn’t be getting anywhere near the levers of power. They certainly should not have been a situation such as this where someone with regular associations with the Muslim Brotherhood and Jamaat e Islaami was put in a position to hire and fire other Muslim chaplains. Sadly, Britain doesn’t have a sensible government nor a sensible administrative system, which is why we end up with the Islamic foxes in charge of the hen-house.

This person should have been weeded out by vetting at a very early stage and told to sod off and take his Islamism somewhere else. It’s monstrous that this character is still in a senior post and still able to influence what is going on in the prison system. Those who wonder why the UK has a terrible problem with Islamic extremism in our prisons, need only look to the sort of Islamic extremist who is currently working for the prison service.

Ahtsham Ali is the best advert yet for a proper purge of Islamists and their supporters from every single area of public life, from the Civil Service right down to local government administration. Such a purge needs doing and needs doing soon.

    The biggest threat to this nation are the “establishment” in general,
    and the government in particular. It’s been that way for decades… and I’m old enough to remember.
    No reason to expect them to start doing anything in favour of this country,
    or its indigenous inhabitants at this time. Far too busy selling out the people.
    Done deals and vested interests, and none of them to the benefit of Mr & Mrs Pleb.
    Two things I have learned in my time here… always follow the money, when a scandal,
    political or corporate, manages to leak out, and don’t forget to read the small print on ANY deal you make.
    A very Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year to you all. Stay safe.

      it is certainly the case that the Leftist Establishment has been extremely destructive. T

      his is what makes it different from the sort of Establishment which existed prior to the Profumo Affair. That old Establishment appeared to be interested to an extent on ‘keeping things as they were’, they were a conservative-with-a-small-‘c’ Establishment.

      The problem with today’s Leftist Establishment isthat they are obsessed with making over things in their own ideological image and damn those who object and damn the consequences. Today’s Establishment is not taking in the air of the Grouse Moors as in Macmillan’s time, but at the helm of influential charities, media organisations and in politics.

      The convulsions of the 1950’s and 1960’s in the UK diminished the power of the old Establishment only to put in place a new kind of Establishment a Leftist one that hates and despises the very people it often purports to support.

      We have an Establishment in thrall to Left wing groupthink or as Quentin Letts described it as: ‘A nexus of Left wing schoozery’

      Seasons greetings to you and your family and my you have a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
