Tower Hamlets Funding Venue for al-Muhajiroun 9/11 Meeting

This piece from effendi is cross-posted from The Spittoon

Oxford House in Bethnal Green, east London is a community organisation dating back to 1884. To support its role as a venue for theatre events, drama, dance and the like it receives money from a wide range of organisations including the National Lottery, the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and even the EU – see page 14 of their Charity Commission records for more details.(pdf)

It also does a sideline in hosting the nastiest Islamists London has to offer. It has regularly been the location for talks held by “Young Muslim Cooperation”, a blatant front for al-Muhajiroun. Salafi Media (another al-Muhajiroun front) hosts a large number of videos recorded at Oxford House. So unwilling is Oxford House to recognise the unpleasantness of their guests that, when the police stepped in to stop an event being held at Queen Mary’s University of London, al-Muhajiroun were allowed at the last minute to move the festivities to Oxford House. Islam4UK, the most open of al-Muhajiroun’s many fronts, even planned a conference Rise of the Khilafah there back in February.


Now Oxford House is being advertised as the location of a meeting held by ‘Salafi Youth Movement’ (yet another al-Muhajiroun front) called ‘Jahanam – A Gangsters Paradise II’. Flyers for this event are circulating in east London advertising two important details. (1) It is to be held at Oxford House and (2) it will take place tomorrow – the eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

‘Salafi Youth Movement’ doesn’t exist. If you look at the back of the flier (not pictured) two contacts are given. Abu Yahya and Abu Muaz, both of whom are openly members of al-Muhajiroun front Islam4UK. If you doubt this, here is some more evidence of these two men being linked to al-Muhajiroun.

Abu Yahya, was a leading member of Ahl ul-Sunnah Wa al-Jamma, a successor organisation to al-Muhajiroun when it temporarily disbanded in 2005. His telephone number is given as 07961 577 221, this is also the contact number given in Anjem Choudary’s (leader of al-Muhajiroun) The Islamist magazine as a contact number for “The Shariah Court of the UK”. The Shariah Court of the UK is, you guessed it, an al-Muhajiroun front.

The other contact given is Abu Muaz. Islam4UK has a video of him accepting Glen Jenvey’s conversion to Islam in his role as a “lecturer” at the “London School of Shariah”, of which Anjem Choudary claims to be principle lecturer. Abu Muaz’s number, 07852 749 999, is given on Islam4UK’s website as a contact for the Rise of Khilafah conference they held at Oxford House.

Al-Muhajiroun are one of the vilest organisations out there. This is how they marked the second anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, calling the hijackers the “magnificent 19″. The links to terrorism of al-Muhajiroun are well documented and yet Oxford House, which would not dream of hosting the BNP, is willing to host an even nastier organisation, al-Muhajiroun. Now Oxford House is willing to host them on the eighth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

This should be a no-brainer for Oxford House. Cancel the booking. Now.
