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 UK's Saudi Arabian embassy says the claims are "categorically false".

Ministers are under pressure to publish a report on UK-based Islamist groups.
The Home Office report into the existence and influence of Jihadist organisations, commissioned by former Prime Minister David Cameron in 2015, has reportedly yet to be completed amid questions as to whether it will ever be published.
...
The BBC's security correspondent, Frank Gardner, said the report's release comes at a sensitive time with Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt all accusing Qatar of supporting extremism - a charge the report says is hypocritical.

Saudi Arabia has 'clear link' to UK extremism, report says - BBC News

Great to see the obvious being spelled out.
But will the report ever be published ?
It's time for the western world to cut ties with this poison.
Give the arms sales to Russia and let them deal with the consequences.

That UK Home Office report needs to be published- in full. I'm betting the Americans are screaming at London not to publish it but it will have to be acknowledged at some point that much of the funding for Wahabi extremism comes from Saudi oil money.

Looks like Prince Bandar will have to storm back into Downing St and thump his fists on the Prime Minister's desk again like he did in preventing Blair from publishing a report into the bribery scandals around the Al-Yammamah arms deal.

Blair ended up muttering something about the report 'not being in the UKs best interests' and folded completely.

We have an extremist Muslim group in Dublin recently visited by our Taoiseach. In view of the goals of this group for Ireland it was akin to shaking hands with Cromwell.:mad::mad:

More breaking news:

The Pope is a Catholic

Bears do sh*t in the woods

More as we get it!

Seriously though, its rather disgusting to see Irish politicians going over there genuflecting to these animals for some of their dirty oil money.

Arabia is up there with North Korea in terms of human rights abuses but causes far more bloodshed with its never ending funding for their loony wahabbist belief system.

Unfortunately they also seem to have a remarkable amount of leverage in Washington and London.

Which is odd when they should of all people have been subject to the regime change capers long ago.

Ah, but Theresa is an expert at supressing and hiding things that embarrass the establishment.

Ask her about her Da and the company he kept.

It has been. It's available on the Henry Jackson website.

When does military action start?
Well they're currently bombing Yemeni children back to the middle ages, fostering regime change in Syria and desperately trying to provoke Iran into a conflict.

Patience, patience.

From an opinion piece by Douglas Murray of the Henry Jackson Society. Some Henry Jackson writers are fine, others like Murray need to be dialled down a notch or three.
Why are some of you fearful of the truth?

Did you deliberately try to conflate the Henry Jackson Society report with the UK Home Office's unpublished report and did you do that on purpose?

'Foreign funding for extremism in Britain primarily comes from Saudi Arabia, but the UK government should set up a public inquiry into all Gulf funding sources, a report has said.

The report by the Henry Jackson Society also calls for the government to consider requiring UK religious institutions, including mosques, to be required to reveal sources of overseas funding.

The findings come as Theresa May faces pressure to publish the government’s own report into foreign funding of terrorism. The Home Office-led report was completed six months ago, and No 10 says ministers are still deciding whether to publish. MPs nervous of upsetting strategic relations in the Gulf have also decided not to publish a separate Foreign Office strategy paper on the region.'

The USA and UK close ties with this vile regime and selling them billions worth of weapons which they can use on civilians in Yemen is one of the great shames of our time.

Claiming KSA is linked to terrorism is a bit like saying the Irish car insurance industry looks dodgy...

Nobody is surprised and yet they're both indulged...

'Running with the hare and hunting with the hound' foreign policies will always end in tears... particularly when those indulging in it are involved in selling arms... which both the US and UK are...

Either you and your pal Sailor there enjoy being wrong or you are being deliberately deceptive. I'd be grateful for confirmation from you which one of those possibilities has caused the temporary confusion.
