Saudi Arabia – The Chief Promoter Of Terrorism In The U.K.

May is entertained by Salman of Saudi ~ April 5th 2017

I’ve been saying it for years. I’ve been writing about it for years. In fact, I’ve been doing so till I’m as blue in the face as that darned budgie staring balefully at you now from the top of the page. Finally, it seems someone has evidence of the truth. The BBC actually headlined it on their website this morning, but by this evening I couldn’t find it anywhere on the BBC. And, so far as I can tell, it never came up on the BBC news either.

(I did eventually locate it hidden away in the “UK Politics” section, somewhat subdued from the major headline of the morning).

When David Cameron was U.K. Prime Minister, he instigated a government investigation into who was funding terrorism in the U.K.. That investigation is, according to the present lot in power, “still ongoing.” It was due to be completed by last Easter. In fact Theresa May’s been sitting on it for the past six months.

According to the Independent:

Theresa May has been accused of burying a report about Saudi Arabian funding of Islamist extremism in the UK for fear it may damage relations with their ally.

The report, which was originally commissioned by David Cameron in January last year, was due to be completed by last Easter and is believed to have been in Mrs May’s possession for at least six months.

The study, which began while Mrs May was still Home Secretary, was designed to examine the origins and scale of funding of terror groups in the UK with an additional remit to follow international funding streams…

…Last month, a spokesman for the Home Office admitted to The Guardian that the report may never be published as its contents were “very sensitive”. [1]

However, today an independent report was published into the funding of terrorist groups in the U.K., by the Henry Jackson Society (a somewhat right-wing think-tank that originated in Cambridge University, U.K. but is headquartered in London). It was this the BBC reported on this morning – in big headlines on their front page.

According to the BBC:

Saudi Arabia is the chief foreign promoter of Islamist extremism in the UK, a new report has claimed.

The Henry Jackson Society said there was a “clear and growing link” between Islamist organisations in receipt of overseas funds, hate preachers and Jihadist groups promoting violence. The foreign affairs think tank called for a public inquiry into the role of Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations…

…The Henry Jackson Society is a foreign policy think tank that advocates the robust spreading of liberal democracy, the rule of law and the market economy. Their report says a number of Gulf nations, as well as Iran, are providing financial support to mosques and Islamic educational institutions which have played host to extremist preachers and been linked to the spread of extremist material.

At the top of the list, the report claims, is Saudi Arabia, the UK’s closest ally in the Middle East and biggest trading partner. It alleges individuals and foundations have been heavily involved in exporting what it calls “an illiberal, bigoted Wahhabi ideology”, quoting a number of examples. [2]

Saudi Arabia tops the list as the biggest sponsor of terrorism, NOT Iran as the United States continues to insist, and it’s fairly certain that the government report Theresa May is refusing to publish states the same.

Isn’t it time a) May released that report so we may confirm what it says, and b) that she resigned from government for continually denying that the Arab nation she’s so politically entwined with is responsible for the deaths of numerous British citizens, and those of other nations, on the streets of the country she’s responsible for governing?
