Shiraz Maher on Daud Abdullah

Shiraz, who sometimes guest posts here, and who wrote the excellent study Choosing our Friends Wisely (pdf) on engagement with extremists, has a post up about Daud Abdullah at CiF:

The state is entitled to impose, and expect, a basic set of standards when it engages with others. By tacitly endorsing attacks on British soldiers and glorifying terrorism abroad, Abdullah has clearly overstepped the mark.

Blears was right to sever links with the MCB. Abdullah has betrayed his country and the very constituency he claims to represent – ordinary British Muslims. His position is untenable. He must resign – and resign now.
