Brit Think Tank Plans To Arrest Hezbollah Member Ibrahim Moussaoui If He Is Allowed To Enter UK
By WILLIAM MAYER and BEILA RABINOWITZ
March 9, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Led by Douglas Murray, the UK's Centre for Social Cohesion [CFSC] is seeking to block a planned speaking engagement by Ibrahim Moussaoui a member of the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah.
Moussaoui's address is scheduled to take place on March 25 at the University of London's School of Oriental and African Studies, where he will discuss "political Islam."
Murray's action comes in the wake of the UK having taken the unprecedented step in February of banning Dutch politician Geert Wilders because of threats by British Muslims dismayed at Wilders' blistering attacks on radical Islam.
The prospect of a terrorist being granted a visa to speak after Wilders had been blocked has drawn sharp criticism from CFSC's Murray who stated, "If Dr. el Moussaoui arrives in the UK we will instruct counsel to seek a warrant for his arrest."
Murray, a brash neoconservative who came to prominence while pairing up with Middle East historian Dr. Daniel Pipes two years ago in a now-classic debate with former London Mayor "Red" Ken Livingstone and an Islamist partner, laid out the Centre's case against Moussaoui in an open letter to UK Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.
"Dr. el Moussaoui is a member of the terrorist organisation 'Hezbollah' and is one of the former heads of al-Manar Television, the official media wing of Hezbollah. During Dr. el Moussaoui's time at al-Manar Television the station was banned in France and Germany because of its promotion of violence and racism. For the same reason it has been banned by the leading European satellite providers. Also during Dr. el Moussaoui's tenure the US Treasury Department designated al-Manar Television as a 'Global Terrorist entity' because of its support for Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade and others. In a 2002 interview an official for al-Manar Television stated that the channel 'helps people on the way to committing, what you call in the West, a suicide mission.'"

Given the evidence provided by the Centre for Social Cohesion, if Secretary Smith allows Moussaoui to enter the UK after its spectacular blunder in barring Wilders, the Brown government will have again been revealed as duplicitous, pandering to Britain's ever growing radical Islamic presence.
