UK: Muslim councillor who denied that the Islamic State existed is given anti-terror job

Birmingham council has appointed a controversial Muslim Labour member who has previously claimed that Islamic State does not exist and has dismissed Islamist attacks to a committee tasked with protecting children from radicalisation and terrorism.

Safia Akhtar Noor was suspended and then forced to resign as a school governor at Yew Tree Community School in Birmingham after several posts on her Facebook questioned if the terror group was an invention after the Westminster Bridge attack.

On the day of the attack in March last year, she wrote: “Can people stop fighting on Facebook? Sadly people died in Westminster today but people die every day in Syria, Palestine, Africa, Rohingya, Kashmir. Need I carry on?!! Grow up and stop pointing fingers!”

Five days later she claimed in another message: “So someone got stabbed after the attack last week as a result of media and government claiming that SO CALLED ISIS HAD CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY.”

She added: “There is no ISIS and there is no proof.”

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
