Lord Ahmed does have some curious guests in Westminster.
The last time he chaired an event organised by a group called “Society Outreach”, the notorious antisemite and Holocaust denier Michele Renouf showed up to lay into Israel, the “pirate”:
…most of the conflicts we are talking about are as a consequence of the pirate in Palestine and the absolutely criminal state that needn’t exist, because – and I run a campaign about it – there is a first Jewish homeland in Birobidzhan, it’s been peacefully set up since 1928, it is still there to receive European Jews, and there was no need morally or in any sense after 1945 for those people to pirate Palestine. And this is the issue that we don’t want to face and the privileged [UN] veto arises from this nonsense.
Tom Porteous, director of the London office of Human Rights Watch, and Diana el-Tahawy of Amnesty International also attended that meeting.
As noted in the post below, tomorrow Lord Ahmed will host this group (the shouting capitals and typos are from the announcement) in another “Society Outreach” meeting. Mr Porteous will be among them:

Venue: House of Lord, Room 4A.
Dr. Suaad Eltaif Alfitouri (Director of Society Outreach)
Pakistan’s High Commissioner to the UK and a representative of Human Rights Watch are the kind of figures one would expect to find at such a conference.
As for their company, oh my.
Evidently the conference organisers consider failed jihadi and fan of hate preachers Moazzam Begg a credible speaker. Maybe he could demonstrate how easy it is to violate human rights by reading some of his poetry.
And Annie Machon? She appears to be almost as mad as her former partner, David Shayler. Here she is in a loopy video from a 9/11 troofers’ conference in Glasgow. Yes, she has joined the cult.
But now, you know, people are seeing there is a lot of evidence, scientific, eyewitness, all sorts of different types of evidence coming out that proves it’s a lie.
So there’s a lot of people out there who are saying the same things, a whole range of different experiences all point to the fact that the 9/11 events were an inside job designed as a pretext for war and designed as a pretext to erode our freedom
By the way, she knows Princess Diana was knocked off and is brave enough to say so:
I have to say, my personal opinion, I think, yes, they did intend to at least seriously injure or kill her.
It’s also the fact that it was reported, that she was being a great success in the landmine campaign that she was running. But also she was about to go into campaigning on behalf of the Palestinians. Now you can imagine someone of Princess Diana’s profile doing that. They would not have tolerated it. They could not have dealt with that. So I think that’s why she was taken out.
Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed is another troof seeker. This is from the “books” section of one of his websites:
The War on Freedom: How and Why America Was Attacked September 11, 2001
A disturbing expose of the American government’s hidden agenda, before and after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. A wide range of documents show US officials knew in advance of the ‘Boeing bombing’ plot, yet did nothing. Did the attacks fit in with plans for a more aggressive US foreign policy? Nafeez Ahmed examines the evidence, direct and circumstantial, and lays it before the public in chilling detail: how FBI agents who uncovered the hijacking plot were muzzled, how CIA agents trained Al Qaeda members in terror tactics, how the Bush family profited from its business connections to the Bin Ladens, and from the Afghan war. A ‘must read’ for anyone seeking to understand America’s New War on Terror.
Yikes! We are all doomed. Here he is in action. He has lots of “questions” about the 7/7 attacks in London. However, even an inquiry may fail to find the troof:
Now, at the end of the day, even if we have an inquiry, I mean I myself am sceptical of what will happen, because we saw what happened with 9/11, we had a complete whitewash inquiry that just vindicated a story that is completely false. The same could well happen in relation to 7/7.
It’s the government that’s made us unsafe. It’s the government that has to answer. It’s the government that messed up. It’s the government that has not just messed up, but that was doing some really odd things, and this is what led to 7/7. Not just a bunch of, you know, extremists or Muslims. There was something far more dubious going on here. Something that has been going on for the last decade.
What is our relationship to international terrorism? What is our relationship to al Qaeda? We are using these guys. What’s going on here? When did this stop? Has it really stopped?
Watch out for black helicopters over Westminster tomorrow evening.
Hopefully their pilots won’t be texting while flying.
