UK: Hamas top dog discovered to be trustee of Finsbury Park Mosque, steps down under pressure

“Mohammed Sawalha’s role at the Finsbury Park Mosque, north London, was investigated by the Charity Commission after The Times revealed in 2017 that he had been appointed to Hamas’s political bureau. The mosque said it was aware of his Hamas role until the report. Mr Sawalha had been a trustee since 2010, making him legally responsible for the management.”

It looks as if the Times has a major typo there; it is fairly clear that it meant to say that the mosque said it was not aware that Sawalha was a Hamas leader until the report was published. This strains credulity, but the mosque in making this claim is trying to maintain the moderate reputation has had ever since the days when the one-eyed, hook-handed jihad terror preacher Abu Hamza was the imam there. Sawalha’s longtime presence on the Finsbury Park Mosque board suggests that the mosque is not as moderate as it claims to be, and should be investigated. But of course British officials will not dare undertake such an investigation.
